How did you find out about Seibertron?

I've been thinking about how I discovered this site recently. My dad told me about it (why he was looking at Transformers websites, I have no clue) way back in 3rd grade. I've been coming here ever since.

Thinking about how I found it made me wonder how other people found it. So tell me, how did you come across http://www.seibertron.com/ ?

TurboMagnus pointed me to HMW back in '04 or '05, but it wasn't until I started customizing that I decided to register and comment.

It's been so long, I've almost forgotten. What I remember is just browsing transformers sites because I was a developing transfan. Found this site and lurked the boards for a while and liked what I saw of the general community. With 3 hours between classes back then, it seemed like a good way to kill time and I really got into it (hence my absurdly high post count). Just been hanging around since.

Time-wise, this was my early college days so 2001 into 2002.
Next up on Pimp My Jeager.

I think it was back when news broke that they were making the movie. I did a few searches on information about it and that's what led me here. I lurked around a bit until the movie came out and I decided to sign up.

I was searching for Transformers Porn and found "Before Carly" instead. Wasn't quite hardcore but eh, there were still boobs.

I remember that. The good ol' days.

Me, I was around on TFArchive in 2000, and found out about this place through there. Then I got into it with a couple of their douchebag moderators and left, came here and made this my permanent home. Been here since April 2001.

Back around 2003, I was reliving my childhood watch old TF videos online, naturally leading to Siebertron.com.

Since then I've have a few different accounts here through the years.

I still miss that feature :(

I started visiting a long time ago, back in 2002ish. I started getting into the Armada series and was excited to see the new figures. I started getting my news through a site called Decepticon Matrix, but it wasn't updating fast enough, so I went to the source they cited for a bunch of their figure pics, and got Seibertron.com.

I joined to mainly play HMW in 2003 during long boring days in class, back when a 10v10 mission has a lead time of up to 6 hours. I slowly expanded from there.

Well, I got banned from TFW for calling Megan Fox a b!tch and cursing too damn much, so I was depressed, and searched "Transformers forums" on Google and this site came up. 8)

See, at that time I didn't know that the F word and S words where considered..."worse than the rest of the curse words".

I found this place purely by accident. I simply googled 'Transformers News' and this place was top of the list, I clicked on the link and the rest was history.

Believe me, I don't curse on this site nearly as much as I do everywhere else. Except real life. I only curse to myself in real life.

I can't remember, but I imagine it involved gigantic talking dragons, magical feathers, and lady dwarves. Oh, and questing. Yyyyeeeaaahhhh, the questing.
What the--Someone let me publish a book! Check out Not So Superpowered. At 80 pages, it's a quick read. Except for you, Burn. You'll take a week or two.

I don't remember, but it was sometime around 2009, when I first got into TFs.
I was into Animated back then, it was my first TF series. I get the feeling that I found Seibertron while i was either searching for Animated figure galleries, or trying to find reviews of TFA Shockwave and/or Blitzwing.

After that, Seibertron.com lived in my favorites bar for a few years up until now, when I joined the boards.

My buddy GEEWUN showed me the toy galleries here a couple years back, and I was immediately a regular visitor, especially in the kitbash section. After a year or so, I finally signed up.
