Seriously... why does TFCC's page look like it was made with Geocities?

    Srsly.

    Only thing missing are those scrolling marquees that infested those tool-generated atrocities called "web pages."

    Because TFCC want to make costs as low as possible which ends up making their customer service horrible and their web site horrendous.

    ...and their magazine. Everything about that outfit looks DIY done by a 19 year old using Paintshop Pro & Geocities for the first time circa 1997.

    It's intended to be Shattered Glass. In our universe the internet is awesome and business websites look professional, aesthetically pleasing, are user-friendly and secure. In the SG universe, not so much...and that's where the TFCC website was made.

    Scrolling marquees are coming soon. It's Hasbro's fault they're not installed already.

    At least the Space Jam webpage has the excuse of ACTUALLY being nearly 20 years old. And given that movie gave us the song "Space Jam Theme Song" by Quad City DJs, I'm inclined to give them an awful lot of leeway.

    I think it uses Hammer and Chisel technology on the Cave Wall operating system.

    Oh my God! It's like using a time machine. I feel so young when I see that Space Jam website.

    Wow, even the Botcon site looks like it's 15 years old. Has it ever occurred to Funpub to upgrade... in anyway?
