Maybe 1/10. 2/10, at most. The ones that fit the M.O., leading up to the release of PD 1 and PD 2 and the blu-ray releases.

I can name one obvious plant right off the bat, right here. Dude was laughable.

I'm sure Andrew can name a few I won't argue with as well.

As a small aside, I would love to know which Mirage members are here. I can completely understand wanting to remain anonymous, but it sure would be cool to know and/or interact with them/ask questions.

The detail's on Early Mirage studios is so fascinating to me. If it were up to me, there'd be a turtle documentary covering just that.

What about samxsteal or whatever his name was. I vaguely remember a user with that name promoting one of the PD films.

More than likely, but I can't say 100%.

It's true, I am a plant.
But...for an organization too secret to know.

If samxsteal was a plant then he was the most dogged employee I have ever seen. He was fully committed to convincing us that the PD movies were good.

PLANT!

Interesting fact I'm seeing: most/all of the PLANTS are friends with one another in their profile, as if to blend in better and appear that they know other people... like some kind of plant hivemind or collective. Like, you can click on DioLeo451's profile, look at his Friends, and hop around from friend to friend and it's like a who's who of plants.

I was 100% convinced after about 3 posts of his.

Looking through those old threads, I found an old gem, too (posted by a plant, of course):

One guy I always though was a plant/troll but his job was to bash Michael Bay

That Trick and Treater guy. It felt like that he was pretending to be a fan. he joins in 2013 and the only thing he did was bash Michael Bay and his movies in the movie thread. He hasn't been seen since the 2016 movie discussion died down.

I wouldn't be surprised if he's in a Transformer movie forum at the moment pretending to be a fan and doing the same thing. It felt like he had personnel vendetta against Bay.

all these plants who do nothing but love. yet, i thought the studios didn't have time for forums ;o)


all they'd really have to do is hire one company and they source it out to about 15 people. some might actually be fans. these are probably the ones who tend to be a bit jerkier than others cause they take it personally.

i guess there are no guidelines on HOW plants promote things. just promote it. if you piss everyone off while doing it, not our problem so long as they go see it

That guy confuses me, too. Did he ever contribute to anything other than PD TMNT discussions?

Did Michael Bay steal his girlfriend or something? Dude was on a crusade...

But are the decidedly a plant solely on the content of their posts and join date? Or is there any actual concrete evidence to go by?

I only ask because I remember when I was hyped for Superman Returns I joined a Superman forum. I stuck to the Superman Returns section, and posted exclusively about the movie. I was constantly attacked with plant accusations. I stuck around for about 3 months, around the time the movie came out, then I bounced. Every bit of praise I'd give was immediately rejected and disregarded. There was no point in staying when no one was willing to engage in discussion.

I imagine this is the case with these forums, as well as Power Rangers or GI Joe forums... basically any nostalgic property that can get old fans excited or even new ones who genuinely like what they see. When they're only hopping aboard when a shiny new movie comes out, people immediately want to stake their claim that they aren't "real fans."

Again, I am in full belief plants exist, I just don't believe it's as common as you think it is. And based on my own experience, even less way of telling who's an actual plant or not.
