After Pixie Hollow closed, I wanted to find some new friends so I joined Disney Create, a website where we can create and share our art with millions of other users. I got pretty good at it, when one day DC started glitching. Slowly, none of our art was getting approved.
Some friends of mine spoke to a DC moderator on Disney Create Wiki and she confirmed that Create is going to be closed down soon, as Disney wasn’t earning any money through it.
A recent article published in New York Times revealed that Disney had cut off 700 of its staff members, including the moderators on DC.
I was really not expecting this, as I was already shattered with the closure of Pixie Hollow.
Fortunately, Disney Create the site would still be there, with the painters and all, but our art will not be approved and shared. That is really a bad news for millions of DC users. At least we still have the painters, but the magic is gone.
Many people have been quitting DC recently, because of the many glitches they had to face. But it seems as if Create itself is quitting, now.
“Disney Interactive makes up a tiny piece of the Disney empire. The entertainment conglomerate as a whole had $1.84 billion in profit and $12.31 billion in revenue in its most recent quarter; Disney Interactive had operating income of $55 million on revenue of $403 million, according to financial filings.
But the gaming and web division has been a perpetual money loser, bleeding more than $1.3 billion since 2008, and the restructuring on Thursday was a humbling acknowledgment that, despite the company’s repeated pronouncements that long-term profitability was on the horizon, the unit remains challenged.”
We really cannot trust Disney now, it merely doesn’t care for children now. Anyways, we all are together and somehow we have to change this.
The closure of Pixie Hollow, ToonTown and POTC Online, and now Disney Create? There were rumors that if Frozen was a big hit, PH would come back. But, Disney is divided into hundreds of different compartments. There is the area who makes movies, Pixar, Disney Channel, virtual games, apps, artists, Disney Land, Disney World, ads, the website, games, video games, merchandise, like they are all different categories. So the money off of Frozen only goes to the Frozen Team. So it’s quite obvious why the virtual worlds didn’t return.
I made a drawing on Disney Create, as I really can’t stay away from it. I have only finished the basic sketching so far.
