    How the Hell did Transfandom have a team for the Board Wars?

    They don't even have a website (technically)!!

    Though I did have fun talking with the guy from TFans (I'll leave his name out of it) during one of many drunken nights about the exploits of Transfandom's "managers" Aerosurge and Stormrider. But still, how the heck did they create a team? I didn't even think 5 people VISITED Transfandom.

    This thread may or may not be an attempt to get them to update their site.

    That assumes Transfandom actually has a "them".

    Does that really count? I mean, if you have five soldiers it doesn't really constitute it being called an "army".

    You're right. That's more like a small, intertwined group of terrorists.

    A dilapidated waste land where only a few entities remain. Legend has it that in its hay day it was a great place for information and fun. Sadly it has fallen in disrepair and appears to have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. :D

    How did that thing work anyway? I couldn't get out to see it. Did the questions get answered to the team or to individuals on the team?

    Questions were answered individually one at a time. Or in our case, we yelled out random numbers and laughed one at a time.

    That's what I kinda figured they'd do.

    I was asked by one of the boards to be on a team, but my expertise is pretty much the G1 toys - I haven't even watched the shows since the BM series. I figured most of the questions would revolve around the more recent happenings - and on the TV shows more than the toys.

    That and the fact I had a table to run meant it was a no go...
