    Default Pretty much all members are gone...

    Looks that way. And it used to be great here. Good folks, nice, interesting discussions and even Michael Bay was replying to certain threads. Now it's basically deserted. Shame.

    Unfortunately, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook have won the battle. People go only there for news and discussions, and as a result the S4TE forums are pretty much dead. Seems that not even a new "Transformers" movie can bring them back to life.

    Sad...

    I miss those days, loved the good discussions we had on here. I still check this forum daily though. It will always be part of my day. Bay & Co. are my favorite aspect of Hollywood by far. Hopefully things will pick up again on here. Bayos for life. S4TE

    Yeah, I'm more of a lurker these days.

    For me, a decade of Transformers is too much. It felt like a Transformers forum than a MB one.
    I've always defended Michael Bay against attacks that his films are full of stupid explosions, girls in underwear and mindless characters... but then he made Transformers 2 and I conceded...

    Everyone died after The PURGE

    Nelson talked about 'purging the forums' in the site and forum stuffs section -- you can look it up

    Just as you thought it only happens in movies

    I definitely agree. I think forums in general are on their way out thanks to social media. It's definitely not the same as it was before.

    It sure looks like the only active ones are the people who have replied here and Gabriel who posts a lot of stuff on the Filmmaking and movie discussion threads and a couple of other people as well. But the site sure ain't as active as it used to be.

    Checking in! Don't even know if any other original members are still around. I go back to pretty much when Nelson started these circa 2000.

    I am still here...it is sad that this isn't what it used to be. I joined between Transformers and Revenge of the Fallen, and it was great then. I do miss logging in at night and seeing so many new threads that it would take me a while to get through. I will always respect Bay for what he did with the franchise. I was a child of the 80s and loved the original cartoons. I have hope for the franchise now that Bay is stepping aside. With that being said, now Bay has time to do more projects that don't involve giant robots. I have enjoyed most of his non-transformers films. I haven't seen 13 Hours yet, but I will at some point.
