‘4’ Days Success Stories: Well, ‘4’ day could not have been any more successful! September 30th, 2010 was a huge day for fluidanims. Many records were set this day. One, fluidanims had a traffic flux of over 40,000 visits in a single day ( the most since the creation of the site back in 2006. ) At one point, when releasing SHOCK 3, the site was actually crashed by so many users constantly refreshing the page to be the first to see the animation. We had over 80+ users in fluidanims’ IRC chat, stomping the past record of around 60. At newgrounds, SHOCK 3, BYE, and Tentacle Monsters Tribute all got featured on the fron page. SHOCK 3, daily first ( over johnny Utah ) - weekly 3rd. BYE - Daily First, weekly 2nd and review crew pick! All have excellent scores. Also, it has to be some sort of record at newgrounds for a single author to have 3 front paged animations all at once? -----

Phil’s Youtube Uploads: Phil(terkoiz) has been uploading videos on his youtube ( http://www.youtube.com/Terkoiz ) on giving criticism to users animations, updates about what he’s currently got going on, even short tutorials on animations, the list goes on. Gotta check it out! -----

‘4’ Day Posters

and

FA Decals:

The FA Store is a huge step in moving forward for the site. Sales enable us to finally have an income stream to help promote and sponsor animators and their animations. Supply is running short on your ‘4’ day posters, be sure to pick them up while they still last. As an added perk for the release of the FA Store, stone has decided to sign these first set of posters. http://www.fluidanims.com/store.php ------
