An advance notice: I intend to close the NTFA Forums in May 2018. The board will be removed completely, you will not be able to browse old information.

The reason is the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) from the European Union, which will take effect on 25 May. Among other things, the regulations give all individuals a stronger ownership of their own personal data, and stronger control over how it is used by others.
And while the GDPR don't directly affect the operation of forums, I have come to realize, as I'm studying the new laws in detail, that the forum and the forum software, in their current form, seriously limit my ability to fulfill my obligations to the individual users. The software lacks essential functionality for complying with potential user requests, and I would also basically have to go through every member account and every old post to make sure that we don't already have too much data on anyone, as well as send out new terms for every member to agree to, and that's way more work than it is worth - especially since there isn't much activity on the boards nowadays anyway.

Should anyone actually be interested in seeing a new version of the NTFA Forums (social media like Facebook and Twitter seems to be predominant nowadays though), please let me know in the comments. A new version would start over from scratch though.

Oh, that's a bit sad, but understandable considering the low activity. As I'm slowly drifting out of collecting again, I don't really feel a need to communicate constantly. Although it would be nice if we could get a Nordic corner on some other forum to keep track of what's happening.

It has to be said that Hasbro Nordic aren't helping the general apathy towards Transformers. TRU and BR are clogged with awful figures that are indistinguishable from knockoffs on the same shelf, while the mostly excellent Generations figures just aren't available after they killed Combiner Wars with ridiculous pricing.

Sad to see the forum go, even though I haven’t been very active.
NTFA Discord would probably be the best option as the forum successor.

I think I'd rather stab myself in the foot with a rusty nail than migrate to Facebook.
