I just gotta say this is by far the best forum site I have ever been.
Being a transformer builder I am constantly barraged by flak and sinnism ( hope I spelled that right) by other fans. Typically on other sites the words; good and crap usually happen in the same sentence.
I dont know if it is because I am new to this site, but you folk have said the nicest things ever.( sappy I know).Thanks for all the encouragement.

You do good work. Most everyone will post comments even if a custom has sloppy work. But you can tell its not great when 1 or 2 people leave pity comments. You have some really great stuff. I started thinking about to make a transformer gi joe vehicle and it boggles my mind.

I am relatively new here my self and must say it is alot better than most if not all. and I do enjoy seeing all the custom work even tho I have no talent for it myself. If I see something I don't like I keep it to myself. I will say when I like something tho.

I've said it before...people that don't get it never will.
As someone said to me once, "I hate what the internet has done to the arts, everyone is an expert and critic."

I guess I'm not surprised you feel this way. I've known for a while now that TFW2005.com was the best site for transformers and being that hisstank.com is their sister/offspring site they are bound to be similar.
What I always appreciate is that if you have something you think could have been done better you say it in terms of it being your opinion and with the intent of helping the customizer. It's always good to say what you like and/or what you don't like in a positive way. I could not like that someone uses orange on something but instead of saying, "ugh that orange is horrible and your custom is ugly" I'd rather say, "hey that orange doesn't work for me but the paint was applied evenly and in the end it's your work not mine"
Glad you are feeling welcome man and again I gotta stress the need for you to post over at TFW2005.com too since your customs fit on both sites and it's nice to get more perspective from the TF side of things

I like the Tank because of all the traffic. It's a pretty big community, given the niche nature of us Joe fanatics. A lot of people loved GI Joe as a kid, but there aren't a lot of adults who are big into Joe, as say, Star Wars, or Star Trek, Marvel comics, etc. There's a lot of good guys (and a few gals on here, hah) and just a few pissers in the pot, but generally it's a good place, even at 4am.
I know what you mean about the TF sites... I used to frequent Tformers quite a bit, but I've been obsessed with the 25th line since early 2008...
I've got to get some of my custom TFs rebuilt (I lost all my previous customs and Joes and TFs about a year back in a fire) but I've assembled most of the pieces, I just need to get in the "shop" and put it all together again.
There are quite a few Tankers who are members on the other nerd sites like TFW2005 and Tformers, etc. There seems to be a good deal of cross-pollination between Transformers and GI Joe.

Well said, everyone. This really is the best community, I wouldn't hang here all the damn time if it wasn't. I have a stupid theory: maybe it's the colors. The gray and red are just easy on the eyes, and the text pops nicely on the background. Whereas, say, Yojoe is bright white and green, which just sorta hurts to look at. Either way, we have some of the best nerds in the world here, and I'm proud to be a Tanker.
