I can't say anything either but if they end up dumping me then I'm only out of a non-paying job.

What?????????????

Postby ElFlorro » April 1st, 2006, 5:17 am

I can't believe what I read right now! Years ago I sarted visiting animated-movies.com. When it shut down I visited animated-news.com every single day and i loved it. Everyone I know here in Germany loves this site! What the heck is that shit with AOL??? Is everything being bought by big companys? I am sad and very confused about this. It's a shame!! And why AOL? Right now I don't know what else to say about this. I always wanted to have a news site about animated movies myself, and I think now it's the perfect time to start one by myself, independant and FREE. Sorry for my language, but I'm really pissed! By the way: I even don't like the new design, the ads and everything else. Thank you for the good work you did, but I think now is the best time to say goodbye to www.aniamted-news.com for ever!

I do hope that this is an April Fools Joke. Otherwise, I am literally going to turn into an anti-capitalist Michael Moore figure (well, maybe nowhere near as big).

No, I think this is for real.... :(

NOOOOO! This can't be happening! :cry: :cry: The site looks so different! You guys HAVE to keep running it. My life has no meaning otherwise. :wink:

If you guys aren't running the site anymore, will you still stay around the forum? :?:

Wow.

Looks like a lot of people believed this.

Truth be told, I knew to look for a joke since this site announced "Snow White 2" last year. ;)

We got quite a few "negative" responses on this one! ;)

Rest assured, we'll be sticking around the old Animated News haunt for quite a while yet, whatever happens! :)
