The Transformerland forums are about to receive a face lift.
What does this mean?
It means hard work.
Who is going to be doing this work?
Why, you ask?
Because that is what will make this place better, and more fun for you.
What kinds of changes are going to be made?
Well, here is one. Currently, in the toy Talk section there is this thread.
We are closing that thread.
Why, you ask?
That thread stinks.
Sure, you can be the first to post a pic of something that may come out someday, but that stuff gets buried, as soon as another post gets made. If it is a toyfare week, or SDCC, there is tons of info to be had, and pics to be shared, but no room to discuss. We want you to bring that news to us, and to tell us your feelings of the stuff to come out in the future. Let's talk about this stuff!
Anytime you can break news about toys we here at TFL have not heard of yet, make a thread, so we can discuss them in great detail. If you have a pic of the next wave of deluxe figures, bring them all on at once so we can debate which is best!
What else, you ask???
You know that teletraan-2 section that is kinda like toy talk, but not really, but sorta is, and you never know what goes there? Well, it is still going to be the place for things like how to guides and "Can you identify?" threads, but now we are also going to be doing something new. REVIEW THREADS.
If you own a figure, you get to post pics and commentary on the figure.
When you are the first to get the figure, you start the thread. If the thread is already started, you get to add to it, or completely disagree with the original poster, as he has no clue what he is talking about!
If you are on the fence about a figure, you read your peer reviews first, and that lets you know whether to buy it, avoid it, wait for the repaint.
(There is a thread coming soon on how to with review threads... please follow those guidelines as to make the search function work better for you).
Finally, the administration and moderation teams are hammering out those pesky forums rules, and guidelines we all love sooo much.
"What does this have to do with me????"
We want your help once again. If you see something going on around here, that you think needs to be addressed, or see a current rule that you think could be made a little bit more clear, send a pm to myself, Ultra Magnus, or Minerva. That way, if a rule really stinks, we may
set it free to go back to the magical rule kingdom.
If one could be better, we will armor it up, give it some guns, and let it loose.
We are excited about these, and many other exciting new changes we are bringing to you. Stay tuned for more details.
This place is already the best, but together, we can make it better.
