    Over the last couple of months, we've received feedback from members that they would prefer to have 3rd party news, discussion, reviews separate from the rest of the forum.

    So, in order to accommodate this, we've split off 3rd party news and discussion into it's own place, this sub-forum.

    Please use this main area for all 3rd party discussion. This includes "News" as would normally go in the News and Rumors forum. Our newsies will scan this place too and if something is newsworthy, we will pick it up here.

    For reviews - We've also created a new sub-section. Please post all your text, pictorial and video reviews of third party items in the sub-section here: Transformers 3rd Party Reviews - TFW2005 - The 2005 Boards

    If you find any additional 3rd party threads elsewhere in the forum, please alert a mod or admin, and we will move it here.

    Thanks!

    great job guys. I always like seeing this site evolve into a bigger, meaner, badder, BETTER version of itself.

    Thanks for meeting our requests Tony :)

    It'll take a little getting used to what is effectively a parallel news/toy hybrid forum, but I think it's an improvement.

    Awesome! I really like this change, it gives back proper attention to Transformers again in the news forum. I honestly was getting sick of the amount of 3rd party threads pushing or overshadowing true TF news threads in the news forum.

    Which ever way we got it, we got it.

    But it is a sincere thank you. I'm sure this took time to program and set up. So thank you yet again Tony and the great TFW2005 staff.

    Might as well ask now. 3rd party news is still welcomed in the news and rumour thread right?

    Or are we sticking ALL things 3rd party here?

    Yes it is a little weird, it was a hard decision. But we think this will better serve everyone involved once people get used to it.

    Hopefully :)

    Please post news related to third party stuff HERE. Yes, it's different than normal, but right now the plan is to keep all 3rd party stuff in this forum, whether news or general chit chat.

    Tony, are you planning on giving the 3rd party forum a "pull down tab" when you hover over the "boards" section at the top of the page? Apologies for my lack of computer terminology.

    Not at the moment, I will keep it on the radar as a possibility.
