Default How did you find your way to Ozformers?

Was wondering how everyone came to these boards. The short answer would mostly be Google (or Yahoo for you rebels and Bing for the lazy Windows crowd) but what were you searching for? Was it a TF review, local TF news or something different?

I myself stumbled upon the boards when searching for info on KOs as there were some "bargains" on eBay that seemed off and OCTA were the only place discussing the seller in question. For those who remember, it was the Santa Hat dude.

So for members new and old, how did you find your way here?

Edit: I didn't put an "other" option so I can't even answer my own poll...

I stumbled onto Ozformers while looking for toy shops in Victoria. My first post coincides with the date I first joined.

I think I was looking for anywhere in Australia that had to do with Transformers. I didn't exactly have the most graceful start, so it's hard for me to remember.

I joined OzFormers in 1997, back when it was called AusTrans. The site/forum didn't exist at the time, so I chose "Other." Back then it was emails and a newsletter which griffin physically printed and mailed out to members. Although I was living in Japan at the time, so I initially didn't subscribe to the newsletter. At the time we were all super excited about the new series that was reviving the Transformers franchise after its darkest period. An awesome thing called Beast Wars. Oorah!


1997: Just purchased Rhinox vs Shadow Panther (inside that blue plastic bag) in Ikebukuro, Tokyo

All I did was look at Tfwiki, and my dad said 'join a forum at least'. At first I tried too join TFW2005, but then I couldn't because the site was down for some reason. So I joined here and was like 'oh wait! This ones for Australian people anyway!'.


True story bro.

It was either this or Seibertron.com linking here to report some Australian-related TF news.

Best option for me is "Someone told me about the site" in that I was directly contacted by Griffin after I started posting on Alt.Toys.Transformers

(Kids ask your parents what Usenet and Newsgroups were)
