    Should we add something more informative next to Radicons as the forum title? Keywords such as kitbash, customs and modifications?

    Well considering the forum title is "Radicons Customs" & directly below that is this description
    "Customs projects featuring Transformers toys and more. Threads contain information and pictures for Heavy Mods & Scratch Builds, Minor Mods & Repaints, Reproductions and Stickers, Non-TF Mods."

    How is that hard to understand what goes on in the section?

    Where did the term "Radicon" even originate?

    Ah, how do i put this?


    Oh that's right: No. Personally, i don't see any need for it, it's damn clear. Though i second Insane Galvatron's question. Where did it come from?

    I could be wrong, but I think it originated from the creator of the Yahoo Group that was named as such.....this was long before it was a part of TFW.

    Reading FTL :( 

    You could be, but you're not. :thumb 

    As for the actual origin of the word, I'm unsure. The only others who are still active on TFW2005.com that were around with me (and before me) during the Yahoo! Group days that I'm aware of are Delta Star (founder, and the same guy of reprolablels fame), Sidecutter (Captured Prey.com, and all around cool guy), and Cybertronian. If one of those guys don't know, then I'm at a complete loss.
