    If they do, they'll sign a new distribution deal for MGM.

  • Why would Disney remake James and the Giant Peach after they released The BFG, which already flopped at the box office?

    I thought their 1996 movie version of James and the Giant Peach was just as perfect as it is, and it's already nearly faithful to the source material of Roald Dahl's classic, so does it even need a remake? I was mortified when I saw this news online.

  • When will John Lasseter revive Disney's hand-drawn animation again?

    I mean, he put the medium on hold after their last 2D movie, the Winnie the Pooh reboot from 2011, flopped real hard not only because of competition with the last Harry Potter movie, but also because of bad marketing on behalf of Rich Ross' selfishness. And then two years later, about nine or ten of Disney's well-crafted 2D animators left and Lasseter stated that he still has faith in the medium, but they'd only make another hand-drawn animated feature if there's money available. If he has to say that, then he needs to report to Disney executives and they need to find some investment firms to co-invest in their next hand-drawn animated feature (kind of like back in the 80s to early 90s when Disney had an investor to co-finance a lot of their movies in order to increase their production costs/budgets and free them from their financial debts).

    Also, I wish they still use Toon Boom Harmony under his direction, and that they add another program like Toonz to their software pipeline.

  • How do I get that Encyclopedia Dramatica article about me removed?

    I mean, they framed me as a "troll" because I was flaming admins who currently run TV Tropes, a once-great wiki, for permabanning my account because I was ranting and complaining that they're turning TV Tropes into another Wikipedia by ruining it with spam and notability. ED's framing of me is what made me lose some of my internet friends and accounts, and then most recently, people unfairly took down my DeviantArt account because I flamed users over there for mocking/insulting me and recommending the ED page. So, is there any way I can get it removed.

  • If MGM revives United Artists as a movie studio again, who's going to run it?

    Since Mark Burnett and Roma Downey are too heavily focused on reality TV stuff and faith-based content to revive UA's former glory, who should MGM hire to run UAMG's film division for truer content and to revive its former glory after Tom Cruise's 2006 fiasco? Well, because the original United Artists itself was founded by actors/filmmakers (Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin, and D.W. Griffith) in 1919 as Hollywood's first independent studio, will they hire someone like Ridley Scott or Rob Lowe (or both) to restart UAMG's movie studio and run it as a backbone for independent film productions? Or how about they also bring back Tom Cruise (and maybe his former partner Paula Wagner) to run the film division?

  • Will Warner Bros. buy out MGM (full ownership or stake)?

    I know they tried to buy it but failed in 2004 and 2010, but they already own the entire pre-1986 MGM library since the merger between Turner (which had acquired the said library) and Time Warner in 1996, and they're distributing most newer MGM productions since 2012, so why don't they get ahold of the rest of the MGM company and accumulate the world's largest film and television library?

  • Is there any way I can take down that Encyclopedia Dramatica article about me?

    Two years ago on October, someone from Encyclopedia Dramatica (you know, the cyberbullying troll wiki at its worst) saw my activity of boycotting TV Tropes' new policies and wrote a nasty article about me there (http://encyclopediadramatica.es/Nate_Spidgewood ), which says everything about me that's not even true and describes me with such things as a "troll" or a "dumb moron" or a "crappy artist" or whatever. I saw this Encyclopedia Dramatica article a week later, and it insulted me so much I became livid. So I tried several times to remove the article as fast as I could, but unfortunately, there's no luck. Meanwhile, people on TV Tropes saw the ED page and mock me for it while they believe in the false facts it says about me, and even worse, people on deviantART (including those I just followed because their art is good) saw the article and flame me for it because they think my artwork and comics look "awful". But no, my artwork and comics aren't awful, they're just good looking with the sketch detail I had in my drawing style, and the thing is, the only reason ED called my artwork and writing "bad" is because they're just jealous of artists who post their work online. And THEN this month, the people go as far as to get THREE of my accounts banned for so-called "harrassment" and even troll me on deviantART AGAIN. So, how can I get the ED page removed for good so it should stop stirring up all this controversy, trolling and lying?

  • Where can I find a crack, serial, patch or keygen for Magpie Pro?

    If you guys don't know what Magpie Pro is, read about it here: http://www.thirdwishsoftware.com/magpiepro.html

    Magpie Pro is an animation software for mapping an animated character s dialogue for lip sync, whether it s 2D, 3D or stop motion. And it also automatically generates exposure sheets for classic hand-drawn animation. I was supposed to print one out, but unfortunately, I only have the evaluation version of the software, and I can t find find any cracks, serials, patches and keygens for the software; all I get are virus installers. Right now, I have version 2.2.3., 2.2.5, and 2.2.6 of Magpie Pro, so does anybody have a crack/serial/patch/keygen for them? Thanks!

  • Looking for a writing partner to work with on an animated series I'm creating?

    Hi! I'm creating an online-exclusive slice-of-life animated series about the life of my alter ego and friends, taking place in my hometown of Sahuarita, Arizona.

    I've started up fifteen episode scripts myself, but only some of them were written, so the scripts are either unfinished or not written yet. At first, I tried to get my school friends to do them, but they're busy. So then, I've made negotiations with three writers, two of whom have worked on animation. The first one agreed to co-write with me as long as he reviews my scripts and likes them, but his laptop broke down and he shifted some of his focus from projects to education. Afterwards, I contacted a writer on fanfiction.net asking if he wants to collaborate because he aspires to be a TV writer, but he's currently unavailable and that he can't respond. Then I contacted a working animator later on asking to be one of my collaborators in terms of scriptwriting and animation, and so he agreed, but said that he's unable to at the moment as he's too busy working on other projects (such as his own), but about the fourth or fifth time I pressured him online, he got pretty irritated, so he demanded that I wait until he's done with the projects he's working on.

    Well, it looks like my animated series is lingering in limbo as of now due to lack of co-writers. Does anybody want to be my writing partner? If you're interested, view my (unfinished) scripts at http://www.plotbot.com/writers/NateSpidgewood/. Thank you.

  • How can you hack a wiki's user account?

    They keep getting on my nerves by trying to ruin my favorite wiki. I tried to use keyloggers, but those are way too hard because they only have keystrokes and screenshots. Then I tried out ophcrack and Cain and Abel, but I don't know how. Does anyone know where to find a special program that lets me hack an account's password on the wiki? Thanks!

    P.S. I know you said that hacking is illegal, but I just wanted my problems sorted out, so don't tell me that please.

  • What's wrong with TV Tropes these days?

    I mean, seriously, I was supposed to be one of the most important tropers on said wiki, but now I've been suspended by these admins like Fighteer who don't give a damn about creativity and only care about spamming stuff with namespaces (which are SUPPOSED to be for subpages and sub-wikis ONLY) and destroying good pages for the hell of it. I was suspended multiple times for cyberbullying them, mocking the "rules" they make to the site recently, and even ban evading using sockpuppets. The last time they suspended one of my accounts was two months ago, when they bounced my old IP address, and even worse, they called me "stupid" and said I "vandalized" a comic strip page they were trying to ruin, but no, I'm just protecting it so it doesn't get ruined. Seriously, though, TV Tropes has lost its fun since these namespacing intruders took over in 2010. It used to be a fun little wiki made by and for teenagers, artists, people with a perfect sense of humor, and of course, fans of all kinds of media. It's NOT supposed to be a WIKIPEDIA copycat, because the main page (originally) said so: "We are not Wikipedia. We're a *buttload* more informal." Now it's not the same anymore. Jeez, whyyyyyyyy?

    P.S. I know it's the admins' website, so please stop saying that. If it's THEIR website in the first place, they're otherwise mismanaging it by taking away everything that's awesome and fun for us young people to read and edit.

  • Why did DreamWorks buy Classic Media?

    I know this is old news, but last year, they bought Classic Media (and their library of old school stuff) and renamed it to the more generic "DreamWorks Classics." What's the point? Can't CM just remain independent, or does DreamWorks want to be bigger?

  • I know TV Tropes is their website, why do you keep saying that?

    Whenever I complain to all of you in previous questions about the TV Tropes admins and how they banned me, all you ever tell me is "it's their website, it's their website, it's their website." Well, let me tell you: OF COURSE! I KNOW IT'S THEIR WEBSITE!! I don't own the site, I'm not being a dictator or anything because I said so; I just came to TV Tropes to have fun editing articles because it details everything I know and love. I thought you're all supposed to agree with me that the website became less fun and more corrupted than before thanks to these admins.

    (Seriously, it's supposed to be a fan-driven website, and none of the admins ever cared about fans and innocent tropers at all. All they care about is money. Those soulless namespacing greedy bastards.)

  • Why can't my TV Tropes account have its suspension lifted?

    Those stupid, heartless admins on that site permanently banned my account for complaining about their rules and their worthless so-called "edits", and I made two more accounts to ban evade which they also suspended, so now they won't let me come back again. I mean, they have no right to suspend me, because I can edit on there anytime I want.

    P.S. Don't tell me not to go to the website anymore.

  • Why do wiki admins keep destroying TV Tropes by misusing it like Wikipedia?

    Seriously, they ruin TV Tropes (one of my favorite websites) and mold it into a pathetic Wikipedia clone by forcing namespaces on all articles for movies, TV shows, books, video games, etc. and defacing good tropes, and then they banned me for complaining about them. It's NOT Wikipedia, like it used to say on its home page. It's a huge but different wiki made by fans for fans. Why can't they change TV Tropes back to the way it was in 2004-2010?

    P.S. Don't tell me not to go to the website anymore.
