Whats up my brothers and sisters?!Hey Prime,its me Big L,what it be?
Just dropping by and showing my surpport,who you saw the link I made for this place at my site,if not GET OVER THERE!Hey where's my buddy UC?UC where you at?
Just so everyone knows I don't know much about Armada so thats why I.m here.I'm a G1 fan and I like long walks by the river after a late night dinner with that special someone. ;D!!Harf,Harf!
Ok,see ya around.
That was my first post on TTF 12 years ago. Wow, I could not write a proper sentence to save my life! Ok, have your laugh cause now I'm going to say something serious.
This place has been my Transformer home for all these years. It has given me a place to express my creative side. I had always wanted to be a writer and the role playing here has allowed me to do that. As well TTF allowed me to take the first steps to becoming a professional graphic designer with all the member sigs, and character posters I do. I have always gotten something back, one way or another, with all the effort I put into this place.
Which brings me to this. There have been times when their have been one or two members who will make a post and claim that the message board is slow, or dead or their bored here. If all your efforts are ignored, as well as all your posts and threads, all your ideas and jokes, all your artwork and character threads and fanfics, all your social interactions and IMs to members and staff here, only maybe then you can complain.
You have to put something into something to get something. I think its fair to say I have put forward a good effort, but I'm not looking for praise for all my time spent here and my efforts. Truthfully, everything I do here I do for for myself and I'm thankful I have a message forum of like-minded individuals who can enjoy what I do with me.
If you want TTF to be the kind of home like it is for me, if you want others to get in with what your doing, then get involved with whats here. And like me many of us have indeed done that. After 12 years we have things here that we know work for others and we have the members to prove it. And we try to do new things, Hoist most of all. So before anyone posts "I'm bored" or "There's no one here", have a good look around, ask yourself first what can you do to make things happen and get involved. And keep doing your thing! There's lots of room here for people to showcase what it is about Transformers they love. And thats the beauty of a message board, you post it and someone will come across it. If not right away then add to what your doing. Not getting the response you want? Then I dare you to do better! I challenge you to up your game! I encourage all to try and learn something new! Make this place the place you want it to be and share with the rest of us all that you are. I've heard the expression that if your bored you have no one else but yourself to blame. I won't debate if thats true or not but I will say this, don't blame TTF. Go read a book, watch a movie, play a video game, design something, draw a picture, make a character, pick a battle, go to the chatroom, look at toys online, write a fanfic and then post about it here.
