Website Updates

As many of you have found out we have been experiencing a few issues with the load on the webserver over the last few days, which has resulted in limited access to our websites Transformers At The Moon, Transformers Animated, Lucky Draw Transformers and The Visionaries.net.

Steve spent half of the day today optimising various areas of the site and the server to help with the load, but this has proven not to be effective enough.  We will continue to work on a fix for this over the weekend and throughout the week until the site is back up and running permanently.

We simply ask for your patients and suggest trying the website again after a 5 minute delay if you receive the errors.

Website Updates

Today marks the 9th anniversary of the launch of Transformers At The Moon.  On the 25th October 1999 we uploaded our first webpages to the domain www.transformers.themoon.co.uk hosted and owned by Freeola.  The domain (themoon) was chosen by us out of a list of various domains which Freeola used, as we felt it had a space theme, which seemed appropriate for a Transformers site, and when our email address was read out it sounded like a Transformers Tell-A-Tale story ("Transformers at the moon").  Thus the website gained it's name.

Since then we've moved to our own domain, transformertoys.co.uk,  so the domain doesn't fit as well as it used to.  The website has been hosted by several companies including Freeola, Catalyst, Spry, Amen and another company which folded, with the owner going on a run between the Freeola and Catalyst hosting.

The site has had three message boards, 8 major code re-writes, exceeded it's allocate bandwidth (10x over) before being moved hosting companies and had over a terrabyte of data accessed in August 2008.

The site was started, and is still run, but two inviduals, has been entirely coded by hand (other than the message board) and has been  worked on almost everyday since it was launched.

The site was created innitially so we could show case our Transformers collection and interested, to help other fans see toys which they may not have owned (or previously seen).  We're still working our way through our collection of Transformers (now over 2100) and have lots of plans for the site (too many plans for two people and so little time).

We'd like to thank everyone who has visited the site and / or emailed us over the last 9 years and hope that you continue to do so.

We have updated out archive of UK Transformers Comic covers to include the 17 covers from the Titan Magazine Transformers UK comic (or Transformers Movie comic).

In addition to uploading the cover of all the comics so far released, in what is the second longest running UK Transformers comic series, we have also created a new gallery for Issue 17.  This gallery contains images from all three stories in the comic.  If you've not picked up the latest Titan Magazine Transformers comic then we certainly recomend it.  The UK exclusive strip is pretty good, includes some new characters and some suprises.  It will be interesting to see where the Transformers Movie alternative universe is taken with the new developments seen in this issue.

This is the 473 non Transformers toy gallery featured on the website.

Digging through some old images we had yesterday we realised that we'd not put these bad-boys up on the site before. So the latest two image galleries on Transformers At The Moon consist of a Chrome Silver Collectors Edition Soundwave testshot as well as a Chrome Silver Alternators Smokescreen testshot.

You've probably not seen them before so it's worth taking a look.
