Wait, so is Anime Academy just completely gone?  Dead for good?  That makes me pretty sad, actually.  Even if people are over here/move over here, it's really too bad to lose all of what was there.

Maybe 2-20 forgot to pay the bills on time or something? I mean, there were no announcements whatsoever and it was still there this morning. Everything should go back to normal once they find out what's going on.

Akito here btw.

Considering that tomorrow is AA's birthday, I wouldn't be suprised if that were the case.

Well, Two-Twenty has said that he's committed to paying the bills for AA, so I'd expect that, as soon as he realizes what's happened, he'll go and quickly renew the account.

Edit: There's also every possibility that he's changing hosts, which can often be a somewhat difficult ordeal.

Things will be okay. I have faith. AA will always have supporters.

Is it just me or is AA still online?

I recommend Mobile Suit, RX-0 and Unicorn from the Unicorn OST.

Good to know it wasn't just me. I was shocked to see it down and immediately headed over here to see if anyone knew anything. I agree that's probably just a temporary thing. I certainly hope so, because I have been watching some older shows and I find the reviews over there to still be really handy.

Well, I guess you got a new forum member over here out of it.

I actually read this website all the time (the reviews, the blog, sometimes the forums) but I don't tend to watch the newest releases so I don't really have much to say. I will definitely keep reading though!

Is this where I get to be a bitter little bitch and proclaim that nothing of value was lost?

I don't believe that, of course.  But if anybody could say it with any legitimacy, it'd be me.

All I do is pay for the AA, and that's usually just automatically withdrawn from my account every 6 months. As long as I have money and credit--which I do--that's that. Everything else, is handled by Mugs or Crapse or magical faries or someone.

Ugh. Time to make some emails.

Edit: Emailed Mugs and gave Roark and Ender a bit of a message over Facebook.

You pay the bills but don't have direct control over things?  That seems a little backwards.

Oh, and good to see you Two-Twenty.  Been a while.

I decided that. I don't really want direct control, even if I foot the bill.

Sure has! I really should poke around this place more than I do. You guys have got a pretty good racket going on here.

Yeah, but the situation you're in now kind of sucks.  You have to wait for Mugs or Corpse to get things back and running.  Meanwhile sohryu has a panic attack.  Think of the bimbos, will you?

I just do what I always did at AA.  Unfortunately there's no nooblet faggot retards for me to belittle and get banned for here.

Got a message back from Mugs:

Quote
The domain expired and I missed the e-mail in the torrent of spam that goes to my @animeacademy account. It should be renewed now. Might take a drop to refresh itself though.

Things will be back up in a jiffy, I suspect.

Thankfully, this is nothing like the other time the AA went down. That was a big problem because it had us trying to track down what went wrong, then trying to decide who should foot the bill, then sorting things out with the web host while trying to communicate with a 10 hour time difference. This time, it's just general upkeep error and Mugs and I have our shit together regarding it. Also, I always think off bimbos. Especially if its soh. Everyone knows this.

I also suspect the new AA reviewer(s) should be announced pretty damned soon too. We got a surprisingly large amount of applicants for that. Most of them complete rubbish, but still.
