Welcome to the New Animated News Forum!

Postby James » October 22nd, 2004, 1:59 pm

I'd like to thank Jawad for taking care of our old messageboard for the past year! He has done a great job with it.

However, most of the Animated News staff is very much against advertising on the site or asking for donations from our readers.

We have decided the easiest thing to do to keep those goals and relieve us of the burden of having to pay for the old board is to move to a new forum. By starting a new forum on the Animated News server, we can run the boards without having to worry about renewals or asking for money since running a forum there would incur no extra costs.

We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause. Members here will need to sign up here at the new forums and we will lose the archives of the old forum. On the upside however is that we will be testing a new live chat feature!

We hope you'll all join us in thanking Jawad for his hospitality the past year!

Please let us know of any bugs that may pop up as we start anew!

Glad that y'all have opened a new board site. Sad that the old site will be lost, but onward and upward!

All the very best to everyone, and I know we all look forward to discussing and sharing information and tidbits on future animated productions (and DVD releases) that we all look forward to! :D

No banners? Better server? Nicer looking and easier to use?

Its a small price to pay for all these features! I'm excited already:)

"Welcome back
Welcome back
Welcome back

Welcome Back

Yeah man how ya doing? Ya good? You lookin good
How long you been back man?
I know you like that
I know you like that

See the girls in the club they getting wild fa me
And all the pretty chicks all wanna smile at me
They raps cats they all got they style from me
And if I ever see them man, they probably bow to me
And when this beat drop I know they gon lean
What they do, I know they gon fen
Everything Mississippi to the palm springs
Girls come brunettes down to blond queens
These young boys don't know what a don mean
I'm just a bad boy gone clean
I'm that diamond chain chocker always remain sober
Don't drink liquor and all the games over
Need it plain I explain it to my broker
Three box in the hood top down it aint over
You know theres more of me where that come from
Me and cuda love running back and back in one

See the names have all changed since I've been around
But the game aint the same since I left out
Ooooh you know we need ya
Ooooh you know we need ya
(Right here is where we need ya)
(Right here is where we need ya)

Welcome Back
Welcome back Welcome back (ya know you like that)
Welcome back (ya know you like that)
Welcome back Welcome back (ya know you like that)
Welcome back (ya know you like that)
Welcome back Welcome back (ya know you like that)
Welcome back (ya know you like that)

See I rep the most high, still I'm the most fly
I win so much they wanna know who I'm coached by
Everyday approached by chicks when I was low top
Wanna give me sosa but I'm like don't try
I see the hisses and the disses when I go by
But see the misses on my wrists when I float by
Self control and I cant tell ya no lie
Tryin to find a soulmate you end up being so tied
I make my money man without the coca
Livin la vida without the loca
I'm down south shortys show me country love
And I'm not even country thug
The people give me daps and hugs so it must be love
And I love the country grub
It feel good to hear people singin welcome back
And I aint even sellin a track
Cause I'm that Harlem cat "

Huge thanks to Jawad, who generously hosted the forum for the past year, without his contribution Animated News wouldn't be where it is today.

Just wanted to add my appreciation for Jawad's input into keeping first Animated Movies and then Animated News going via the messageboards.

He certainly helped us out at a tricky time, and will hopefully continue to be a part of the AN family.

Thanks Jawad...and welcome everyone to the new boards! :)

Yeah, this new board looks cool.

Macaluso! Rocko!!! My favorite show from growing up :)

I didn't see when I was signing up...how do you get a little picture like that? It looks like everyone has one.

Thank you Jawad!
