We are moving on here, and we would appreciate it many of you would as well. Thank you.
This topic doesn't really need to exist. Show your love and appreciation of 3rd party and knock-off transformable toys and accessories by joining in on some of the over 1300 threads regarding our beloved 3Ps and KOs. This forum is for the most part strictly fans of 3rd party and KO products. Seibertron has made his stance on 3P/KO products and where they belong on his site well known, and while he doesn't come around these parts very often, we still have a good time and show our love of 3Ps all day every day in the various threads. He very easily could have simply banned any and all discussion of 3P products but because of the outcry and very lengthy debate from fans and even some Mods, he was kind enough to give us our own little playground.
Don't think of it as being swept under the rug, just think of it as how we do things around here on this site. To be specific, at one point in the epic debate, Seibertron stated that if you didn't like his policy on 3Ps on this site, that you could find a new home at a different fan site. I, like many others chose to stay and like the characters we love, adapted to our new surroundings.
