A Letter From The Webmaster - Big Changes Here
by Anthony Brucale
a reason why you don't leave a figure sitting precariously on your printer
and an aromatherapy candle nearby on a humid spring New York day. Alas,
poor Kid Muscle will not be able to get to his cow and rice while slowly
sinking into wax! (One day I have to do an article on that series; if
you're not watching it on the Fox Box Saturday mornings, you're missing
out on all the fun!)
And, like the slowed Kid Muscle, the big update I've been touting on
the newsgroups and messages boards has taken a little while to prepare.
(Actually, Kid popped out of the wax rather nicely and only needed a quick
rinse to get him back into fighting form.)
Behold! The new additions to TFU.INFO. First and foremost is the new
running to use it, but trust me, it's all worth it. In that navigation
strip, you'll find two brand new ways to browse the archive; By Series
and By Sub-Group. These have been requested to me numerous times, and
with a little free-time and effort, they have been implemented into the
Also a much requested feature is some sort of identification page. Well,
request no more, it is also
featured in the new navigation bar. All you need to know is the color
of your figure and you can browse through our listings. Also, I've made
individual sections for Pretenders,
Nebulans to help
ease your search.
Also added is a brand
new message board and forum area! I really got tired and annoyed with
the old board, so I've implemented an interface that most Transfans should
be familiar with. So stop by, sign up and post away!
and largely, I've added am archive of the Original
Gobots and Rock Lords. It's one of my favorite, under-appreciated
lines, and I hope you enjoy looking around the new archive. It still needs
a bit of work (I didn't realize how many of my personal Gobots collection
were in such terrible condition), so if you want to help out, check
our help page for more details.
Still more great stuff on the way! This month's magazine has a look at
Diaclone Marlboro Wheeljack,
several Aerialbots Knockoffs in the Knockoff
Spotlight (you don't want to miss that), winners for our last Question
of the Month, a new contest and poll, a
Gobots Article, and a few new additions to the archive.
Big thanx to everyone who's helped out in the past couple of months,
especially Graham Weaver and Matt Karpowich, they make this site better
and better every single day.
That's about it for now. OTFCC
is coming up quick; so if you are in Chicago for the big con and you see
me there, feel free to say hi! And don't forget to check back here after
the con for a big report and update!
