Seibertron.com Energon Pub "News & Rumors" Forum Now Live!

Good Saturday morning Seibertronians! Your friendly neighborhood News Admin here with a new Energon Pub forum announcement, the Seibertron.com News & Rumors forum is now live! Use this forum to report anything and everything newsworthy in the world of Transformers:

  • Movie News
  • Cartoon News
  • Comic News
  • Toy News
  • Sightings
  • Licensed Product News

In a nutshell, we want it all! However, there are a few things to keep in mind. If the news/rumor is something we've posted before the topic will be locked, and we will do our best to provide a link to the ongoing discussion. If the news/rumor is indeed newsworthy the topic will be moved to the appropriate forum and/or merged with an existing topic when needed. For example: Shogo Hasui tweets a new image of MP-20 Wheeljack, that can be posted in the News & Rumor forum, but your topic will be moved to the Transformers Toy Forum and merged with the ongoing MP-20 Wheeljack discussion. Of course you can always contact us by using the the good old Submit News button found at the top right of any page.

Another somewhat new feature we added a few months back is the news crediting system. Most long standing members have probably already noticed this directly under your post count. If you're the first Seibertron.com member to report newsworthy material you will receive credit for your find. You can keep tabs on this by clicking your News Credits link, which will take you to a list of everything you've contributed.

Quick disclaimer: We devised a script that went back and attempted to retroactively credit everyone who's contributed news in the past by matching Seibertron.com user names with the names that were imputed as sources for past news items. It was not 100% accurate. As you peruse your news credits you may notice items from the past that you didn't actually contribute. On the flip side of that coin, there may be things you know for sure you contributed in the past that do not appear. Unfortunately that was just the reality of attempting such a task on a site that's been reporting news for over 13 years. Please do not contact the staff regarding these.

One last Energon Pub note, we've done a little rearranging! The following are now subforums of the main Transformers Toys Forum:


We hope you enjoy these new features and changes, as we constantly strive to make your time here more enjoyable. Let us know what you think!

Hmm...

I'm kinda used to the old method of just posting something newsworthy in an already active topic that it's related to, so as to enhance the growth and activity of said topic.

Otherwise, the only topics that'll remain in this new forum are either ones deemed not newsworthy or locked topics of already-posed news, none of which shall proceed to grow.

In a way, that kinda alienates this new forum and the rest of the Seibertron forums from one another, but that's just my opinion. :-|

You're still welcome to post news in that manner, just use whatever method your most comfortable with. That works great if the poster of the news follows that up with an email or news submission letting us know about the news, otherwise it's just another post in the existing topic when the News Crews scans over the forums. If we come here to this new forum and see a new topic that automatically alerts us there's potential news. For example if I go the main Transformers Toy Forum and see there are new post in the Official MP-20 Wheeljack discussion I just assume it's fans discussing the figure. If I come here an see a new topic about MP-20 Wheeljack I know a member may have news about the figure.

Really, we're just trying to give members every means possible to submit news. We really want members to participate in news gathering and discussion whether it be this new forum, the News Submission button, or the way you described. Just participate in whatever way you like. :D

I get watch you're saying.

My only concern is that any topics in this forum that actually get to stay are ones that won't amount to anything (since, from the looks of it, all the newsworthy ones will get moved/merged into other forums), which is kind of a shame for this forum.

I may still try it myself, though.
