Optimus Prime has just become an Ozformer!!!:eek:

Member number 99 too!

Should member number 100 receive a prize or a welcome celebration when he or she arrives for being the 100th Ozformer?

I've moved this into the non-TF section. While I agree that it's an amusing observation, I'm not sure that it warrants being one of the threads new members are going to check out first. So it's here with the Member Photos thread and related materials (:

actually OP is member #101 and neither #99, 100 or 101 has been validated by Griffin yet (hence the vbulletin message)

Yeah well I'm just going to pretend I know what you mean by that and nod and agree.

hover over your nick and you'll see the number (thought I've mentioned this), click your nick and you'll see the details...

vbulletin message validation just means that if you try click on the nick, you are not able to see the details. Ask uncle icey to explain :P

Easily done...New member - Optimus Prime (http://www.otca.com.au/boards/member.php?u=101)

If we mouse over his/her username now for the forum, it states that he/she is technically reflecting as member #101; however due to spam registrations....he/she will be known as #99 as seen in the Active Member Statistics

Understood?

Great... first Optimus Prime invades Iraq now Australia. So much for our "Australasian" member policy (according to his MySpace page he's still in Baghdad).

"Optimus Prime" is an American Transfan who had his name legally changed to 'Optimus Prime.' He's also part of the US National Guard (as a firefighter) and is currently serving in Baghdad, Iraq.

The original user known as Optimus Prime was - iirc - a German fan called Iggy Drouge (could be wrong)... but the American Optimus Prime is the most widly recognised Transfan using the "Optimus Prime" handle, since it is legally also his real name.

Iggy is/was from Sweden, actually. There's a name I haven't heard (well, read) in.. what must be 8 years.

Oh, more recently than that. Remember I mentioned stumbling across his ebay ID about a year or two ago, and saw that even though he was still buying the occasional TF, he seemed to have a greater fetish with buying Barbie dolls clothing.
Scary...

Hello everyone! Thanks for the welcome! (even if it was a little misdirected.) While I'm not MR OPTIMUS PRIME (who IS the firefighter over in Iraq who changed his name), I have chatted with him before a few times. I'm actually the Optimus Prime from the Official Transformers Movie Board ( http://boards.transformersmovie.com/ (http://boards.transformersmovie.com/) ).

Lakewood is indeed the US location (I'd never have guessed it), but OP says that he originates from somewhere in NSW, but is currently in US (which fits our member requirements).

As for 100 members, we need one more to actually have 100 active members. Khorne may have got #100, but three registrations haven't been successful, which means we currently have 99 active members.
Still, not a bad result for only being a month old at this location.

didn't know that there was an "official" movie board :)

anyway, here's an "unofficial" welcome :)

be sure to post a little something about yourself and your involvement with the fairly expensive hobby.
