This post marks the 10,000th story posted to Animated Views since our launch (as Animated News) back in October 2003! We’d like to thank our readers and our forum members who have been with us since the beginning and all those who have joined since. We do this because of your loyalty, support, and our common love of animation. Ben and I would also like to thank all the staff members who’ve been part of the team throughout the years without whom we could not keep this site running. (And by the way, we’re always looking for new writers…) We look forward to being a part of your internet surfing for another 10,000 posts!
