    That's the first Transformer's Forum to ever ban me, years and years ago...

    Years and years ago, THIS was Transfandom's forum. Which means you were banned HERE.

    *looks in to it*

    :p

    It wasn't here, it was sometime in 2003, after the split. But 3 years in Internet time is like eons in the real world...

    There is a reason for that, it has something in common with the way they get their news as well.

    I used to post there several times a week a year or two ago but since the threads are old and the updates are slow I decided to move on. Hence my presence here.

    Same here. I didn't forget about them but I just basically never looked back. I don't see how all you guys post at so many boards honestly. I struggle to keep up with just this one :(

    Once upon a time there were two mystical Online kingdoms devoted to Transformers. They merged into one, becoming the greatest of all Transformers communities. The Dual Monarchy of Aerosurge and Tony ruled with grace for a long time in internet time. But eventually differences within these two communities proved too great, and there was a great rift. TFW 2005 once again became it's own site, and Transfandom installed a crappy forum that I left after like two days to travel here to this wonderous land.

    Big LOL goes out to Jiggles and his Renaud comment.

    I was at 2005 before they joined with those other sites to form Transfandom, and I stayed with 2005 after the split. Although I did register with the Transfandom boards, I don't think I ever posted.

    I think they're dead. I'm actually surprised that they bother to keep the site going. When I left them it wasn't on good terms. Bunch of uptight SOB's.

    Don't forget the bitching. There was lots of that by morons who didn't know what was actually going on, and never bothered to take the time to find out.

    I vaguely remember the pre-split days. I don't recall how long I'd been here before it happened... Was that before or after the Orson's World debacle? I'm thinking before.

    Anyway, I remember the board getting somewhat screwed up, and not being sure where I was going, but as I drifted the bit currents carried me here, and I am happy for it. I've sampled the others from time to time, but I'm not giving up prime steak for ground chuck.

    Orson's World was after the split, I think. I can't recall the sites being merged at the time of my joining, which was slightly before that.
