    Forgive me if this is old (and in a way, it is), but what the heck happened to TFU.INFO? There hasn't been an update in over a year. It's a really good resource, and I would hate to lose it for good.

    I'd love to know too, but I have yet to hear anything on this topic, despite this very thing being asked a few times. Anybody? I'd hate to see that place die a slow death and it needs a major update. If I knew the guy and had the ability, I might volunteer to take over (or just help out) as I love that site.

    love the site too, its so much faster than flipping through books to find certain things.

    a couple pictures have been dead for awhile, does anybody here know the webmaster?

    all this is public web domain info, the person who registered it is "anthony brucale" in new york. a email is listed as: tonyfitz@mindspring.com

    I too long for an update, but I'm thankful it's still there... so many sites of so many fandoms have come and gone :(

    I believe Ant has a job that keeps him pretty busy, and the site is very labor-intensive to update and maintain.

    It is a terrific resource, but it would be great to see him hand over the reins to someone who could update both the content and look of the site. It's way overdue for an overhaul in both areas.

    I understand the guy's busy and we can all sympathize with that, but I dont see why he hasnt asked anyone if they'd like to take over as co-webmaster. I mean, I cant imagine it's that hard to upload pictures of toys you already own for the benefit of others

    I use it to identify things, and it hasn't been updated in a while, wonder what's up?

    Seems like a perfect addition for those busy Seibertronians or even here. I just see it fitting at the other site better since there is so much other content there. No offense to the staff or members intended. I like it here just as well!:thumb

    I was wondering this same thing a couple days ago. I'm tired of seeing the same news that Reprolabels blah blah etc etc.

    I've been wondering for quite some time too. I use it and Unicron.com as a resource. I'd like to see it updated too.
