From the TMX Forums;


If you've recently fired up good ol' TrackMania, then I can be assured you've been asked the following question: Are you happy? With this being a quick poll, where you get the choice of: Yes, No or No Opinion. This was rather dull and useless. If Nadeo want a better response than a mere yes or no answer, they should've let players give a detailed response to there choice. This option was not given. However, we have started this topic to obtain your detailed response into this.

Januy’s Chat- New Updates14. January 2010 21:50
Posted By: View User Profile Januy Permalink | Comments (8)

Hello TMX,

It has been a week (so far)! While TMUFX just kept relax and calm, there was chaos on TMNFX. First there were some troubles in the forum (new posts landing on the first page), then somehow tracks got switched ( D02-Race for example was a totally different track), then TMX went back in time for 4 days and after that it went down!

All of that has it’s reasons, though some are unclear (even to the Crew), but one thing is clear: the Coders eventually got TMX back on track and it’s back it’s old state again, probably even better.

On a side note, why don’t you come up with the reason yourself for that reset back in time, you might even get 1000 coppers or more for it!

Hello readers,

I found an old idea by Jozii, that included the TMX Crew and some small text about them. It sadly went into the freezer, luckily I got hungry and found it next to the ice creams.
So, the next few weeks we'll serve you a TMX Crew Member, telling a bit about himself, informing you a bit more about who is watching you all the time ^^

We will start of with our former Blog Admin, FastForza!

TMX’ Reset – The Story10. January 2010 20:12
Posted By: View User Profile Januy Permalink | Comments (6)

Hello dear readers,

as you probably have noticed, TMX((NF) went back in time 4 days.
Now, the real reason behind that isn’t particularly entertaining, nor very clear.

Well, NLpwf came up with a nice little competition idea! Let’s try to turn this little hold-up into a nice story.

Why did TMX go back to the 6th of January? And what exactly reset the website?
That’s up to you to decide! Give us your most funny, thrilling, entertaining, horrific story about what happened backstage.

The best story gets at least 1000 coppers, the prizes can rise ;) Leave your story in the comment section or leave me a personal message! There isn’t a deadline yet.

Please, don’t take this competition too serious, and try to have fun coming up with story. Keep it polite though, we don’t want dead bodies and spraying blood (:

Off you go!

Video Showcase - Onio – Just Classic7. January 2010 21:43
Posted By: View User Profile Januy Permalink | Comments (5)

» Hello guys, after my request for articles Velocity/Boinkerz was very eager to help, and who would we be if we didn’t accept that offer? So, enjoy the Video Showcase by Velocity!

»The Video

» I was looking through the videos in the most recent section of TM-Tube for this showcase and found nothing very good for quite a while. There were quite a few good videos with good racing but the editing and quality just wasn't there. After about 20 minutes of hardcore browsing through the pages I came across this gem of a video called Onio – Just Classic. It's a video made by BamX for Onio and some of his team mates in LegenD.

Welcome to the Author Showcase, a project founded by Natzke on Trackmania Nations Exchange. We already made a lot of Interviews, with famous users like Ron Turbo, Panis and GanjaRider, but also normal TMX users like Quat or SeaDevil! We have gotten a lot of positive reactions to it. And we now got the great news that we can publish our Interviews on TMX Blog! We hope you enjoy it!


Phew, it’s been a while guys! But we’re ready to get up the AC again! So, let’s start of with one I should’ve published a way long time ago, but was kept inside the vault. Let us introduce you to this old TMN-builder;


1.Please tell us more about yourself (birthday, real name, place of birth, height, weight, favourite colour) and your background?
