R.I.P. TF Media

20 04 2011

Another transgender story and caption site bites the dust, and this time it is one of the bigger ones: TF Media.

The short version of the story is as follows:

Since apparently this is too much for some of you to read (really? Come on.) here’s the abridged version:

The site’s going down, although the specific date is not set. It could be any day soon. Chat will stay up for awhile longer. Other sites hosted on the same sever, including Freya’s, will stay online indefinitely.

TF Media will provide a download link of everything on the site, so in theory people who have contributed to the site will not risk losing it all. That being said, having to sort through 3 GB of unsorted files sounds a bit daunting!

The reason the owner has decided to close it down is simple: He has too much to do, and the system is too complex for someone else to take over. That’s reasonable.

The most important lesson from all of this is this one: If you are story writer or a captioner, keep copies of everything you do! You can always republish it on your own TG blog (it’s easy) or in one of the forums.

So sorry to see another great TGF site bite the dust ; I recall another one I think it used to be on “geocities. com / net ” and it was called ” Otorus Transformation ” I believe. I would like to download all the TR-Media.net I can to more own PC. I especially liked the TG-Manga / Animie themed items. And I liked the rest of it as well. Hopefully, while this author is saying ” Sayanora ” ( japanese for Goodbye ) to all his viewers ; another may step in and retreive / revive the idea. I hope so, I discovered hentai-manga animie about 15 years ago and I am still amazed at what their cartoons can do.
