General Information / GAC Forums problems

Don't know if this is the right place to post this...

I haven't been able to access the GAC Forums for some time. You can view the home site, but when you try to open a thread or subforum, the message in the attachment appears.

Does anyone know what's the problem?

What happened to this obscure guy? He was a writer at Famous Studios for one time in the mid 1940s. He then went to WB and worked for Art Davis, but got fired because of his booze problems (Lloyd Turner mentions him in the Barrier interview).

Why was the last short released with screen credit to him ("The Pest That Came to Dinner") released a year after "The Foxy Duckling"? Backlogging, abandoning the story and accepting it again, maybe because of Cinecolor-processed cartoons released before Technicolor ones?

Did he work for another cartoon studio (before Famous and after WB)?

TTTP In Exile / Famous Studios animators questions

Where were Steve Muffatti and George Germaneti during the mid 1940s (1943-1947 releases)?

I suspect Muffatti was in the service, but it doesn't look like Germanetti was also. The last Popeye cartoon he animated in that period was "The Marry-Go-Round". His next credit was on Dave Tendlar's "The Goal Rush", released in September 1946 - almost 3 years later. He seems to have disappeared after the move back to NYC. Where did he work during that time?
EDIT: Answered by Bob Jaques - both men were in the service.

And, was Harvey Patterson (received credit on "The Lost Dream" [1949] and "Jitterbug Jive" [1950]) related to Don & Ray Patterson?

Let's start with "Winner By A Hare".

TTTP In Exile / Famous Studios and widescreen

Did Paramount release their 1954-onwards cartoon library in "false" widescreen, with black bars covering the top and the bottom of the screen, just like WB? The difference between the same opening/closing titles from before and after 1954 is obvious.
