Yes, it's cluttered (Popular Tags is just plain weird and unnecessary), it's news page is very short and it's not exactly "Best Web Design" but you have to admit, they often get the toy news ridiculously quickly before everyone else (for someone like me who's a toy-figure chaser, that matters alot). It's a pretty friendly place, everyone tends to just agree with each other in there or argue quite rarely, it makes the whole 'positive environment' thingy sorta boring. Would you believe it, I prefer going through all the detailed discussions that come up in here to the generally monotonous train of thought over there.

Really, ask the people who have been banned from that site for their audacity to question the actions of a moderator.
Congrats Ryan and the News Crew, and thanks for making this site the awesome place it is.

Everything about this site is fantastic, but I have noticed the news hounds at TFW are slightly ahead at getting some news up quicker. I also like how they imbed videos right off the main page. Aside from that plus for TFW, the web design, the forums, the resources and the community here at http://www.seibertron.com are superior.

Congrats TFW, you guys do some good work over there.
Big props and a massive congratulations to the seibertron.com staff, particularly the news staff!
Winning the best news award is proof that we are out there reaching not only the forums, but also the tens of thousands of lurkers/readers who never have their names up but who's dedication to the hobby keeps us striving to be better.
Thank you all.

I knew we would pull it in, but I gotta say I'm still shocked that they won best site design again. I'll still tip my hat to TFW, their staff work hard and are good people. Congratulations go out to them as well.
