    Congrats, I think haha.

    Also, you should totally write something up in regards to your 10 year journey, including of course how its been impacted by TFW along the way. Might make for an interesting thread.

    Despite the ocasional flamewar and about 30 guys I have on ignore, this is still the best place to talk about Transformers on the web. I sincerely thank the moderators for maintaining the order here, and the fellow fans that support their work by keeping this place always entertaining and civil.

    The fandom has changed a lot since I went online for the first time. Back in 98 there were a few specific people that were the to-go people if you needed any information regarding TFs. What they said was the law. Things changed drastically with the release of Beast Wars - first time the TF concept changed, and that was a shock for everyone. Fandom trools were born, flamewars were born, and with the release of car-robots and Armada, and the stabilishing of possible "reboots" every year, things went downhill. That was probably the time I left a.t.t. and joined the boards (although I believe I joined here even before, but I guess a problem with the servers forced us to join all over again, I can't remember).

    At that time in my country there was just a handful of brazilian fans that knew each other, and the boards did help us getting the hot news first, which provided us with tools to gather our own group here, and start our own conventions.

    Then came 2007 and the first movie, and dear god wasn't that the most horrible experience regarding internet in general? For what is worth, it was also my first Botcon, which was one of the greatest things in my life - and I was able to meet a lot of you in person! It was awesome to feel part of something being so far from home as I was, and yes, I was screaming "TFW! TFW!" along at the pizza dinner.

    From then on, I learned with my kids that toys are meant to play, and my skin got thicker. It's been fun all around, and for me this forum has a quality standard above not only other TF related boards, but for general boards as well. If I can think of one word when I come to this place, it's "safe".

    For another ten years for us all! Cheers!
