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

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

Post by 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).

I'm starting to think this is an April Fools Joke too.

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! :)
