Links Back Up + Tv Shows

The Animorphs Forum's E-book Project links are back up. If you encounter any problems, do not hesitate to email me at richard[at], or leave me a message on the forum.

I've acquired the Animorphs TV series from Demonoid, they have been re-formatted to reduce file size, and are being uploaded as I type onto friendly file hosts. Expect the collection to be available on November 1, which is today, depending on which time zone you're on.

Here's a taste of what is to come. VLC Player is recommended.

I'll like to thank whoever the original uploader of the series, pretty hard to track who that might be, but thank you.

Host Switch

The Animorphs Forum's domain ( is host switching from a 100mb / 3gb per month, to a 25gb, 35gb per month host. As a result of the DNS switch, the e-books may not be available for a time. Ripway's links will still be up, but links in the Direct Download thread will be affected.

Wednesday Update: Ripway links are down until 6PMCST

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:

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.

New Staff Member

Adam / TheEllimist, a long time member of RAF has been promoted to the RAF Staff. He joins Druid / Raphael on the team.

Their jobs will be to moderate the forum, and have fun. I'd like to welcome Adam, and please, don't harass him... :) thanks.

What Happened to Richard?

Yes, you may have noticed, but for the 1290239th time I changed the name of the forum. Now, it is no-longer Richard's Animorphs Forum, rather The Animorphs Forum. The dropping of my name from the forum's name was done to de-personalize the forum's name.

I'm still hung up over the RAF, because that is what the forum is known as. So for the time being, You will see RAF: The Animorphs Forum atop all web-pages/ 

As usual, accessing the forum via is recommended. is on the way...

Deleting Posts

After years of members having to ask a staff member to remove threads, I have finally removed the block that prevented members from removing their own threads.

Initially, this was done to prevent disjointed threads, but I realised that members should know what they are doing when they remove their own threads.

600 Members

After hitting 500 members 26 days ago, RAF has hit 600 members.

Our 600th members is rowrow, no doubt the surge in members is the result of the e-books being uploaded by our members.
