It's hard to believe it's been 14 years, my fellow Seibertronians, since June 26th, 2000. That was the day that I launched Geocities.com/G1archive, which would become Seibertron.com just 3 short months later. Seibertron.com started out as a Transformers screen capture archive thanks to the release of various G1 episodes on VHS tapes from Rhino. Sometime around September 11th, 2001, our initial forums launched using the old UBB Boards. Since that time, our community has flourished and continues to grow.

The past 14 years here on Seibertron.como has brought many of us together as friends (and some would even say as a family), helped many fans find that elusive toy that has evaded their collections, provided a wealth of knowledge to all of us over the years thanks to the amazing volunteer staff and our regular contributors, and has been a regular source of entertainment in various ways. I look back at the last 14 years and think about how much has changed in our world and with the Transformers fandom since then, and I can't help wonder what the next 14 years will bring.

Thanks to all of you who have made Seibertron.com your online Transformers home. I'm using tonight's premiere of Transformers Age of Extinction to celebrate Seibertron.com's 14th Anniversary with a few of my closest friends. I hope many of you will also get together with your friends and family and enjoy yet another iteration of the Transformers brand that has brought us all together.

And on that note ... transform and roll out, my fellow Seibertronians!

Yeah, it's hard to believe. :lol: And I've been around all but a few months of it! (I actually joined in early 2001, despite what the current sign-up date says. Thanks, multiple board crashes! :D Those were the days...

I do miss the screen caps, though. (Unless you have them and I just can't see them...?)

Screen caps are on my list of things to return to at a later date. They've been MIA after a couple of server crashes took them out. You probably won't miss the original images anyways since they were 320x240 instead of the high res images we are used to today that would be 1980 pixels wide. :D

So, when are you going to bring back the "Before there was Carly..." section, eh? (I kid, I kid...)

Unfortunately, "Before Carly There Was ..." section won't ever return. :(

Humorously enough though, the section is still on the site, just in a hidden directory along with all of those old UK comic scans that were long since removed from public viewing. :D

Here's to another 14 years then! Pretty convenient that the age of the website is pretty much just the last two digits of the AD year :-?

:APPLAUSE: Thanks Ryan, for allowing all the rest of us make your little corner of the internet our online home. My brother began ranting about this great website he had stumbled across years ago, ran by fans like us. I was (and still am) impressed with community as a whole, as you said, it does feel like an extended family here. To this day, Seibertron is my first stop of the day on the good ol' interwebs, and I look forward to the next 14 years. :BOWDOWN: WRECKERS, COMBINE TO FORM - um, nevermind....
