This is because I am a nerd, and a fanboy, and everything else.

Could we add a Star Seekers faction symbol in the allegiance drop menu?

I do miss the 3rd party stuff on the news feed, and I know this conversation has been done to death. But surely the amount of 3rd-party stuff could be restricted, to, say, major updates, new figures etc. Not a million dr. wu pictures which are slightly clearer than those that proceed them.

The TFC Superion is a work of art. It's a shame that it has been consigned to a corner of the forum. I consider a piece like that to be a major watershed for Transformers, when you see how stunning the jet modes are - a technological leap if you will. EVERY fan deserves to see them on the front page.

My question is, is there really no middle ground, where some 3rd party stuff (high priority only) can be placed back on the news pages? I'm advocating a trickle, not a flood, and certainly not a return to the days when every item was 3rd party. :D

Noted, but then this is a thread about how to improve things on the site though right? I think the site would be improved with a small amount of 3rd party coverage (similar to your creative roundup) on the main page. Not sure if Ryan is even looking at the 3rd party discussions anymore, so how else will he see the suggestion.

Any suggestions relating to 3rd party stuff can be discussed in that thread. That's the last time I'm going to say it.

Probably been suggested a million times before but...

Could you not get the site sponsors on board and have monthly giveaways/competitions?

Or maybe members could get/win discounts from site sponsors on purchases?

Despite the fact that sounds awesome, the sponsers probably wouldn't be comfortable with giving out free toys/coupons to only certain people. I mean it would be great to win a set of all the Hercles figures, but that would set back the company about 700 dollars

OK fair point, but a small discount surely wouldn't be to hard for them to swallow?

EDIT: Or maybe have competitions were the first prize is for example, a 20% discount off your next purchase at... (insert site sponsor)?

I'd like to see that too.

have notifications if someone makes a reply on your article that you have made.


You can get e-mail alerts when someone replies to a thread you've created/posted in. When you post you'll see Options beneath "Save" "Preview" "Submit" and one of those is "Notify me when a reply is posted" Just tick that and you'll get an e-mail notification.
(You can also turn it on or off by default via your control panel)

Or were you suggesting something else like an alert at the top of the page? (Similar to how Facebook works)

restrict the font sizes so that we don't have to copy blocks of text in people's posts and paste them elsewhere to read them properly?
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

An idea for the UCP. I think it would be cool to see how many posts I need before I am no longer a Mini-con. This could go right on the Overview section of the UCP.

As Seibertron.com already has a Facepalm page with 'Like' buttons et al, would that not mean the clicking of buttons on the main site would be linked to Faceache, so to 'Like' an article you would have to sign up or be logged in? :???:

i use some other websites to track figure but i think your website could do that as well -espically with the galleries you have for the characters -adding something like http://myfigurecollection.net/ system to track figures you own would make this website even more useful -mainly because the other sites don't have as good a listing of transformers-with pictures

Any chance of going back to the old thumbnail style in the galleries? The new ones aren't even proper thumbnails, just cropped images, makes it very hard to tell exactly what you're going to be looking at (and how it differs from other similar images) before clicking through to the full image.
