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!



Yes I do Tom! I remember them all. It feels just like yesterday. And your right!
It was all Good!
I love Scarlett and by the way I faved and commented on the current contest theme post (This ain't a Rembrandt!).

You're welcome! Thank you for your kind words, SplatShot. That contest was special - it was flooded with Rembrand remakes. So don't wonder about the title of my entry. And... - I'm not kidding - even Vlad participated that time! That one really feels just like yesterday. Great remembrance.

I waited around to even write this.Losing this site is like a death to me.Its impossible to explain the loss I feel. I honestly think FN saved my life .My mom died on December 3rd 2010.I poured myself into FN,and God I was awful,but I never stopped and l never waivered. Thank God my mom didn't pass before Dora hit the web.I have never seen her so excited and proud of me.My mom was my biggest cheerleader.Every chop I made,I always remembered that smile on my mom's face.I have never seen so much talent on FN.I really haven't.My jaw has dropped to the floor when I've seen these unbelievable,awesome chops.I just am going to miss all of you.I am so sad,but I know all good things must come to an end sometime,but I just wasn't ready for this.Thank you Vlad for creating this wonderful site,and I feel blessed I was able to be a part of FN. I've learned all I know from photoshopping on this site.I want all of you to know,how much I care for and respect you all. I will mourn FN like I would a death,but I will have to dust myself off again and go on with life.Thank you for the gift of chopping.God Bless You All

I was wondering where you were, Debbie! It is good to see you.
My Mom is gone now too. She was a grand cheerleader of my chops as well. I can still hear her most common remark. "Oh My!" she would say. lol...that made all the hours of work worth while. God Bless!

Debbie that's precious to hear. My first success was in 'Use Your Pumpkin 2013 when I joined. I came fourth with Obama using a pumpkin as a toilet and pooping plastic Mitt Romney figurines. Lol Debbie you was the second person to comment on it.

I went awol for a couple of years life gets in the way and not having a decent enough Photoshop software. I only recently resurged after my father passed in 2015 after five years with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's combined. Due to my lifestyle now taking care of my mother and working night shift I moved away from painting with acrylics and become more digital, as it's more convenient.

I can't believe I just won my first gold and the ship is sailing into the night. I'm so glad it happened though.

Take care. I might need to resurrect some of my dormant online presence. Hitsy you are a bar I've tried to reach and adore your portfolio. I see you are on Deviant Art so can keep in touch of your awesomeness. I haven't posted there for years but I go by 'Cosmicartisan' on Deviant. A mix of Acrylic paintings, Photography, Digital Art and Poems.

Such kind words. Thank you!!!!!! You were destined to collect a lot of Golds, my friend. It is a shame that will have to be realized elsewhere. At least you part with a little bling It took me about 8 years to gather the ones on my mantle and it was a long time before I broke the ice and got my first. You just have to persist and watch a lot of tutorials. It also helps to get a few pointers from the masters. We'll se where we all wind up? Wherever that may be there will be those willing to give back. So best of luck Please do drop in on my gallery at Deviant. I'll look for Cosmicartisan. Cheers

That really sucks Vicspa. Happened to me a few times until I got a dedicated 1 Tb external harddrive to move bloated files to off the mainframe iMac. I also shorthand save image after every few clicks of rendering, all moot to you now. If it's any consolation I had one of my best chops deleted for using an element from another of my entries after getting no sleep creating it. I was gutted as it's one of the best I've ever done. Roll with the punches huh.

All the best 👍🏼

Thanks for sympathising with me, S--- does happen, I used to keep 2 files of every thing I did that's why my 2 TB drives are almost full. I'm subscribed to CC 2017 and thought this would not happen, but all water under the bridge now. Good luck to all.

So, I was getting my sentimental "final speech" ready thanking all of you for the kind words and telling you how much you meant to me through the years.

Instead, here's what wanna tell you:
Freakers, I love you! The site will not close and will go on with some better changes in the coming weeks/months!

P.S. I have just looked at my total comment count now under the avatar ... 99,090... NINETY NINE FREAKING THOUSAND comments. I feel I have to bring it to at least 100,000!!!

Freaking sad news indeed, and you close on my birthday. I am happy to see you get some much needed rest, Vlad, if in fact you are going to do so even for a little while . . . FN has been truly one of a kind in the midst of other such similar sites that were, in my opinion, never as special. I created some of my best Photoshop art for Freaking News Contests and would not have the same quality portfolio without it. Here’s wishing all the FN choppers, past and present, continued chopping enjoyment, with the hope that one day either FN or something close will return. Best Regards to Vlad, Kelly, Julie, Jim, and any one of the administrators I may have missed!
