Some will meet this end with bitter feelings, some will be enriched. Maybe some will end this chapter with a little of both. I think I will. It is not easy to say goodbye to old friend, nor close a good book before it is finished. FN was indeed a book of many stories, a chronology of a movement of artists exploring the scope of their abilities in a medium never before seen on this planet. I for one learned a lot. I look back on the early chops I did and wince. A lot of growing happened here. Many kudos can be cast to Vlad and the judges and all those who contributed. But the biggest kudos goes to the thousands of Darwin Award candidates that made Freaking News, Lampoon Central. We could not have done it without the Woot- deee- dooos of politics and celebdom. “Celebdom” is a made up word you won’t find in any dictionary.
Perhaps a few of us took it too far in our partisan lambasting, or perhaps some just took us way too seriously? Part of our job has been to pull back the curtain. A bunch of us had the courage to do so. For that, you are my heroes and you know who you are.
I can’t imagine the things Vlad and the ladies had to deal with in the back lines due to our madness. Keeping this place together with so many varying political and social agendas must have been crazy J
Yep, very crazy at times, indeed.
However in my humble opinion, it was all worth it in retrospect. We played with masters, became worthy of doing battle with them and earned the respect of our peers. And we made friends in our efforts to slay them in digital combat. Sometimes we succeeded to our delight and sometimes we failed much to our discontent. But we were always friends and learned from the licks we took.
FN. It will be missed.
Thank you Vlad, Ladies, and all my FN friends. It was a blast ... XXOOOOO




Eloquently stated, Tim!

Dear Vlad,
Thank you so much for the great experience your extraordinary website has given.
I have had 5 years of fun let alone learning a lot from all Freaking News artists. Thank you for the great time and a friendly atmosphere of the contests.
I wish you good luck in your new endeavors.
Sincerely,
Andrew

P.S.
FreakinNews Folks,
Thank you for support and help to learn "Photoshop art". Perhaps I'll meet you on another Photoshop website.
Good luck,
Wanderer

Is there going to be at least one more farewell contest?
I drop in several times every day hoping to see one.
Freaking has been a part of my every day NET for a loooong time.

Sorry to see FN closing up shop. I had a lot of fun here; although I had given up chopping due to poor vision. Still alive and kicking though. Best wishes to all in the future!

Damn curse filters... ALIEN P☺RN
You've been after this contest theme for years, Tim. lol
If you can finally pull it off, I'll be sure to score your chop a "10". As long as the male Alien doesn't sport a fireman's helmet and a salt-n-pepper beard. Probably still give it a "9" though.

On my left eye I have a clot on the retina with permanent damage, I'm chopping with one good eye while I still can.

It seems nobody is updating the site now. Only this thread. It would be a crying a shame not to have one last comp. I think an open ended one like The Freak Show. I would like to submit my news item chop for March in it already complete.

Anyone getting responses via cashing out credits ? I'm getting the form failed to send.

Sad to see FN go. Thank you all for all the memories and good times. I've made many good friends here and cherish all the competition and amazing people here. I learned a lot from you all and sadly I hung up my chopping gear about 8 years ago. It was a great ride and thank you all, especially you Newsy.

My crowning achievement from FN was having a chop make it into a Netflix documentary about guitarist Bob Weir from the Greatful Dead. It was a pretty cool 15 seconds of chopping fame for a chop that lain forgotten in the halls of FN for about 7 years.

Do you remember your 1st submit? Your 1st trophy? Your 1st win, perhaps? Or even your 1st POTD? - I do. And it feels awesome. Any entry, any comment. Thank you Vlad and all FN members for those great moments.

And remember: never feel too tired to chop!

I remember most of my chops. Most of my early ones were downright dreadful. LoL. I learned a lot from other choppers and slowly evolved. I do miss chopping, but it's crazy how many people chop now with only apps on phones. I had a hard drive failure recently and lost copy of photoshop 7 (pre cloud based Adobe which I loved) and all my old chops. I don't currently have a home computer, so unfortunately I won't be able to back up all my old chops from here before the site shuts down. I'm going to see what I can save to my iPad and phone.

I started saving my archives but it's just too much. My computer didn't even like it as the cache or something filled up and crashed so I guess I will have to be happy with being able to save the first two years of chops. I sure did have fun and hope you all stay in touch. I will maintain my deviant art account so you folks can drop in and keep tabs on whatever I wind up doing artistically. I really enjoyed meeting and playing with you all and wish you all clear roads and fair weather. Thanks Vlad, Mac & Kellie and the lot of you for the chance to play and be so inspired. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... XXOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

ah, this makes me sad. Is this for real? looks like it was posted a little too early to be an April Fools joke.

I haven't been around for awhile but took comfort in knowing that it was here. I have met some great people here and made some incredible friends. I'll never forget FN. Most of you guys know where I am, if not https://www.facebook.com/jerrywlambert there ya go. Don't be strangers, that means you too Vlad, I always toast us on our birthday at some point during my drinking. Love you guys.
