TheTF.Net Forum Meet 2012

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on February 25, 2012 | Conventions,Site Updates |

Here we are at our forum meet for 2012, in a Wetherspoon’s pub. We’ve had a day of visiting various comic and toy shops, and now we’re boozing it up as per usual 🙂

TheTF.Net 2012 Forum Meet

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on February 24, 2012 | Conventions,Site Updates |

Our annual forum meet is taking place this weekend in Birmingham. The official thread for the meet is here on our forum, and any transfans are welcome to come along and say hi, and/or buy us beers. Some members have already geeked into Birmingham early and are enjoying the second city as we type this, whereas many more of us will arrive later tonight or tomorrow.

Assuming we’re able to, because there are no guarantees, we’ll get some photos up over the weekend so you can see what sort of stuff we’ve been doing.

If you do want to come along and meet some friendly, slightly drunk, Transformers fans in Birmingham then check out the forum thread for details – or you can comment here anytime over the weekend and, assuming I’ve not lost my phone, I’ll get the message and can let you know where we are… that is of course assuming I know where I am, which is no gimmee.

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on January 27, 2012 | News,Site Updates |

If you’re a Facebook user (and who isn’t these days?) then you might to look at our newly designed Facebook Page for TheTransformers.Net. We’ve taken advantage of the cool features available on Facebook to build a wickedly stylish new page that features our latest news updates and tweets. You can see the design below, or you can visit the page itself here (note, if you’re already a fan of the page and you’re logged into Facebook, you’ll need to log out to see the new design as it’s only for people who haven’t already liked it – or you can see it direct here on its own tab URL).

New Transformers forum – sign up now

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on July 29, 2011 | News,Site Updates |

For those who haven’t noticed, we have a new forum here at TheTransformers.Net. Our first forum, on a system called ‘toast’ launched way back in the beginning of the last decade (yep, we’re that old) and was replaced around 2004 with the Web Wiz forum you can still see over at TheTF.Net. Now however we’ve come bounding into the 21st Century with our new forum, located on this very domain, powered by vbulletin.

tf-forumThis new forum has such super sexy cool features as Facebook integration, birthday reminders, personal galleries and more bells and whistles than a Morris Dancers’ convention.

So, sign up to this new forum ASAP to ensure you get the username you want before someone else nabs it. Our old forum, over at TheTF.Net, will be live and running for a week or so yet but will be locked down before Auto Assembly so that the new forum can take us into the next ten years of Transformers worship. The URL TheTF.Net will be redirected to our new forum, but all of the old posts will be saved and archived so that you can still read them if you want – your work will not be lost 😉

See you there people!

New Decepticon Transformers Website Design

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on June 17, 2011 | News,Site Updates |

Our new brand spanking website only went live last week, and already we’ve improved it – we’re not ones for sitting around on laurels you know? If you remember some years ago our website used to have selectable skins, where you could choose between website designs such as Optimus Prime, Megatron, Rodimus Prime and Scorponok – you do? Good.

Well, we’ve brought that back – only far more interactive. If you look to the right of the website, underneath the Facebook box (where you should also click by the way, to like us on Facebook) you’ll see an option to choose from Autobot and Decepticon themes. Go on, click it. Doing so will make things go all purple, and evil like.

If you’re real good we may even add a movie theme for Transformers Dark of the Moon… wouldn’t that be nice?


New Transformers web design coming soon

Written by Tom Potts on May 23, 2011 | Site Updates,Transformers: Dark of the Moon |

Since TheTransformers.Net began, way back in 2000 (yes, we’ve been around that long) our site has gone through many evolutions. We actually started on the free hosting service called (which meant 20 Megabytes free).

During the last 11 years our site has gone from a free hosted website, to a static HTML website on TheTransformers.Net, to a dynamic website designed and built using classic ASP and SQL to its most recent incarnation, in WordPress. In all that time however, the site has maintained its position on the first page of Google for the keyword ‘Transformers’ – a feat that has become increasingly difficult since the advent of the movie in 2007, and all of the other fansites and websites that have sprung up over the years as a result of Michael Bay’s film franchise.

But why are telling you all of this? Well, for the last few months (years actually, we’ve been busy on other stuff too) we’ve been working on a new design for TheTransformers.Net – one that will stand the test of time, look great and won’t impact on our very impressive search engine placement (because that is of course where most of our thousands of visitors come from).

Our new design will rock too because, unlike many other fansites we’re not relying on someone who knows a bit about the Internet for our new design, nor are we relying on just a Transformers fan who happens to have worked out PhotoShop. Now, our new design will be constructed by someone who has worked as a web designer for over a decade, as long as we’ve been going in fact. Our designer has worked as a web designer for GAME (you know, the video games people), has worked on web projects for clients like Sony, and Manchester United, and has worked at a leading agency offering web design in Cardiff Bay.

We don’t want to big this up too much, but it’s going to rock – just in time for Transformers Dark of the Moon.

You can see some of our past designs here, on our about page, as well as some of the awards we’ve picked up over the years (including one from Dreamcast magazine, remember the Dreamcast??? – that’s how old we are!).

Stay tuned for the next big update at TheTransformers.Net – one of the very first Transformers websites on the Internet (Don Murphy take note the next time you want to bad-mouth us about ‘jumping on the bandwagon’ of your film).

Transformers The Movie website back up

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on March 4, 2010 | Site Updates,Transformers The Movie (1986) |

Only this week we realised that one of our very first Transformers websites,, was down due to a mix up with the domain names. This website was originally designed and put live back in 2000, and was a website dedicated to the original 1986 animated Transformers movie.

Looking back on this website we can see how our love for putting Transformers information came about, and hope that now it’s back up that it will provide something for today’s generation of Transformers fans who have come to Transformers through the movies of Michael Bay.
