Posted on Sunday, July 05 @ 17:26:32 EDT by Daikun

Etc. Well, I guess the cat's out of the bag. As Tyler announced yesterday, Toonami Infolink will be closing its doors in the coming weeks.

Since I was the most active news monkey on the site, I feel I should probably provide an FAQ for what's going on. And yes, this is my final news post on the site. (I'm not posting this on TDA so I don't fill that page with a massive wall of text.)

Click "Read More..." and thank you all for a wonderful 13 years.

When is the site closing?
We're aiming for early August. An exact date has not been finalized.

Did you know about this?
Yes. The crew and I were discussing it for the past few months, and we agreed that this is the best course of action.

Why are you doing this?
We have several reasons for doing so:

1) Inability to upgrade. Zogg (Tyler's partner in crime, remember him?) hard-coded the site when it started, and since he's been gone for a long time, updating the site to current standards has been practically impossible. The site has really started to show its age as time went on. This site really does have that Internet 1.0 look, since we started in the pre-YouTube, pre-social network days. We can't keep up anymore.

2) Decline in traffic. Toonami's 4-year hiatus left our site down in the dumps, and our attempts to bring back our membership post-revival have seen minimal to no success.

3) Server space. The Infolink is a collection of dead weight on a server that needs to be freed up. We also won't need to pay the bills for this domain anymore, so we can save a bit of cash as well.

Who will be moving to TDA?
Nobuyuki and I will definitely be migrating. The fate of the other mods are uncertain, though. If any other mods wish to join the staff, please message Tyler through Email or on Skype.

What about forums and discussion?
The forums will remain open until the site is deleted. If you wish to discuss anything at all before the shutdown, speak up now or forever hold your peace.

After the site is closed, there are plenty of other places to discuss all things Toonami. Toonami Faithful, Toonami Fan, and Toon Zone are just a few examples.

If you have any other questions, please leave them in the comments.

I've been lurking on Toonami Infolink since 2005, but I'm just now making an account. I'd come in every few months when I ran out of places to web surf and read all the posts I missed. I don't even know why since I haven't watched anime since 2006 - maybe it's just nostalgia. Anyways, just wanted to say that I'll miss this site and the old poll that I've probably voted at least a hundred times on. Thank you for keeping it alive for so long!

I've been a lurker on this site for, honestly, more than a dozen years now. I came here routinely back in the early aughts, back when there was no social media, and when Toonami was in daily mode and was making new transactions constantly. This site was the first place I went to for Toonami news, and even after Toonami got axed the first time, I'd still come back here for nostalgia purposes.

This is seriously one of the only non-mega-Google-type sites that I can say I've been going to, off and on, since my childhood. You guys helped fuel the Toonami fandom, and for peanuts I imagine. You guys deserve the greenest pastures you can possibly move on to.

Best of luck with whatever you guys do! (Hopefully to TDA) And yes, that survey was on for too long, but hey, it was worth the wait to get it updated, haha
