Hello, all,

I have grown increasingly distressed and discouraged with the state not only of my life, but also of the animation community as a whole lately. Additionally, having to deal with moderating the forums, inasmuch as they may not be the most active place in the world, has taken a serious toll on my life. So it is that I have decided I will be taking a long sabbatical from these forums.

I will still be contributing to the database itself; however, I don't think I'll be as prolific as before. I will mostly work on submitting information and screenshots for those parts of animation that have gone "uncharted", so to speak, on the database, most particularly international animation. As for the Cartoon Discussions of the Month, I intend to start up a blog of my own where I can discuss animation, though it will be updated only occasionally; keep watching my Twitter for the next few months, maybe!

At the very earliest, I might be back when the 5th anniversary of the database comes around this October; if not, at the very latest I should be back by mid-December.

Thank you all for your understanding, and I hope the forums will grow and prosper in my absence!

Yours truly,
Toadette

What's wrong with the animation community? It's perfectly fine to me! Unless you read Cartoon Brew.......

Or are worried about new copyright laws....

Well, good luck.

I do find it funny this is happening just at the same time GAC has been "shut down".
