Are you a New Member?

I am making out this blog post to all the newer members out there (older members are allowed to use this too)! First I would like to Welcome you to RAF! This is the Ultimate Animorphs Forum.

I have composed a short list of helpful things that you may want to look at and/or use and/or do, so here we go!

1. Introductions and Departures Sub-Forum

This is probably the first place you should go if you have recently joined, or just want the other forum members to get to know you better! You make your own thread, talking about yourself and who you are! This is really the only way to make sure that all the members have a chance to get to know you. This is a "Sub-Forum" of the "RAF Social" board.

2. Member Profiles Sub-Forum

After you have created your Introduction, you may want to create a 'Member Profile' for yourself. This is your own topic where you can basically make blog posts, post pictures for the forum, answer questions asked by other RAFians in your thread, and more! This is also a "Sub-Forum" of the "RAF Social" board. NOTE: A good example is Richard's Member Profile.

3. Attend a RAF Chat Meet & Greet

This is a great idea for any member, new or old! A RAF Chat Meet & Greet is basically what i see as sort of "Dinner Party" at which the members of RAF can mingle and talk with other RAFians and get to know everyone better. Held in the RAF Chat, it allows New members to meet Veteran members and vice versa. Also, Richard has shown up on occasion so you can get to know the Creator of RAF a little better.

4. Read the rest of the Animorphs Series

If you haven't finished the series (missing books, pages, etc.), then I would STRONGLY recommend that you DON'T enter the Animorphs Discussions yet. You may ruin the ending for yourself and that isn't fun at all. But have no fear, for the eBooks are here! RAF, the original uploaders of the eBooks, has them available for download here. Best part: they are FREE!! Every Animorphs book (also has the Vegemorph book, a parody) is available for download either as PDF or in a ZIP file.

5. Get involved in a RAF Project

There is no easier way to feel included, than to become involved. RAF has many projects on the go, from recording the Audiobooks, fixing the eBook errors, creating Smilies/Emoticons, creating the Animorphs Graphic Novel, and many more. Go here to see the RAF Projects board and get involved in one!


While we do allow lurkers (and have created a member class for such people), we much prefer posters. There are may topics on RAF spanning a very wide range of subjects, so it's very easy to find something to suit your fancy.

Well I do hope this little guide (that isn't finished I bet, and i'll probably come out with a 2nd Edition in the near future) has helped you figure out what to do next, and if you have any questions, don't be afraid to PM me, and ask me!

New RAF eBook Pages: Remnants & Everworld

RAF eBooks | Everworld

I spent the entire day yesterday (Monday) creating e-book pages for Everworld. Currently there is only one Everworld eBook (#1), but the hope is thatonce the books are converted to eBook format, they will be readily available for all to download.

If you have the Everworld books and would like to help to make Everworld ebooks, feel free to visit this board.

RAF eBooks | Remnants

Remnants too have been giving a section under RAF eBooks. There are five books currently available, and if you have the others and would like to help the process, see this board.

RAF eBooks

An extention of the RAF E-Book Project, RAF eBooks is another extended area of RAF designed to help the ease of new Animorphs fans to discover the series. It contains all the hard work by the members of RAF, scanning, OCR'ing and uploading. It features general Animorphs book information such as Pages, Author, Cover Morph, and so on.

Of course, since I did the pages by hand, there may be errors such as incorrect links, etc. If you do find errors on the pages or even in the books report it here.

All E-Books Uploaded...

Now that RAF has all the Animorphs E-Books (with 49 uploaded by me and OCR ed by nihtelek), all that is left of the E-Book Project is the editing of these books. 

I have removed the 10 post restriction on the Ebook boards, and the Other Section. So all those who are hungry for Ebooks no longer need to spam RAF to download them. All that is required is your membership.

What we do ask of you, if you have the time, is to, while reading the e-books, note any typographical errors and post in the Animorphs E-Book Project Board.

Some Issues

Ok. The Animorphs Forum Ebook board is now protected. You have to have 10 posts or more, or willing to assist with the editing of the books, in order to have access to the board.

Another thing. I sent out emails to two different groups of members, both instances resulted in the emails being sent, or appeared to be sent to the wrong person. Not to worry (and hopefully your email agent didn't mark it as spam), the email is legitimate.

For further assurance that emails from RAF are received, please add admin@animorphsforum.com to your contact list.

Sunday Edit:

They are as follows:

New Member: 0 - 9 Posts

/After quite a wait, msaecila has scanned book 47 for your reading pleasure, arpitnathany has OCRd it. Both users (and Dace) have been given the new title of e-Book Contributor. 6 more books are left to be uploaded to the RAF servers. Numbers 49, 52, 53 and 54. Book 51 has been uploaded, but has not been OCRd. Both Alternamorphs are still undone.

Monday Update

What a busy weekend it was for me. I, for the first time, scanned and uploaded book 34, and it is officially available for download via the Animorphs Forum e-Book Project. I must thank nihtelek for OCRing (is that a word?) the book for the Project.

Since yesterday, my Ripway web-space that has been hosting the e-books for easy download access, has been overwhelmed, and has been repeatedly shut down for excessive bandwidth usage. The image below displays bandwidth usage for the past 24 hours.

As a result, I have moved the Direct Downloads links to another host which allows for 3gb with of transfers per month versus the 150mb per day with Ripway.


The last 24 hours have been a statistically active one on RAF:

Over 70 members logged into RAF.

See the peak that Sunday experienced.

Tuesday, Oct 30 Update: RAF experienced a huge traffic spur on Monday (when this blog was posted) because of the email I sent to all members. RAF saw 3,658 hits, 366 unique visitors (or different persons), 280 first time visitors & 86 returning visitors. The best one day stats since November 4 2005 where 3,911 hits were recorded on that day, 364 unique visitors came on RAF, 346 first time visitors, and 18 persons returned to the forum.

The graph above has been updated to show Monday's totals.


You can now access RAF via http://theanimorphsforum.com/, but that domain will redirect to http://animorphsforum.com/.

eBook Project Update

As all members of RAF should know, the Animorphs eBook Project, started by Dace, has a home with RAF. To date 36 Animorphs books have been scanned and uploaded by volunteers. These books can be downloaded free from the Richard's Animorphs Forum eBook Project.

Thanks again to the members who have taken their time to scan copies for members unable to access an Animorphs book.

E-Books a hit for RAF Blog

After only recording 126 hits to RAF Blog since I began tracking 24 days ago, I began noticing a quite a number of persons coming to the blog in search of Animorphs E-books.

62 persons as you can see from the image below have come to the blog from search engines, and with that the keywords used have come to light. An overwhelming number of persons are in search of ebooks. And thanks to Dace we are now the place to find these ebooks.

The E-Book Movement

After an effort from myself to make e-books for Animorphs failed (many times) hope for online books for Animorphs faded for me. But with the help from a number of members (Dace being one who has scanned a number of books so far) there is an e-book project which I fully endorse.

I have set up the RAF Animorphs E-Book Board which will allow members to download and read Animorphs online. This board will be maintained by new member Dace.

I look forward to the series being (finally) available online, and applaud the efforts of the members who have taken their 
time and effort into the creation of these books.
