Why "Think, Create, Animate," where you can make "grounded videos" out of any source of media, or a character you hate?
a.k.a.: GoAnimate (2013-2018)
Go!Animate (2007-2013)
Type of site: Animated video hosting service
Language: English
Created by: Alvin Hung
Owner: GoAnimate, Inc.

Status: Active

Vyond (pronounced similarly to "beyond"), formerly known as GoAnimate (2013-2018) and Go!Animate (before 2013), is an animation site, which is used for drag-and-drop animation which is similar in fashion to PowerPoint. It was founded in 2007, and the website later launched in 2008. It was founded by Alvin Hung to create entertainment for his family. This page will discuss on how the website has became since grounded videos became milked beginning in 2014, but it will also discuss the problems that the website had before its downfall.


About featured articles | Nominate an article'

  1. To qualify for an article on this wiki, a website/online business/internet culture must have either;
    • Terrible staff/social justice warriors.
    • Terrible updates that screw over their userbase.
    • Terrible business practices and poorly designed technologies.
    • Caused controversy such as hacking incidents/scandals/raids/ransom.
    • Gimmicks that they tried but failed.
    • Negative ways to impact the Internet such as censorship or pranks to pull.
    • Poor website designs.
  2. Custom captions are allowed on these wikis now as long as they fit well with the pages but the main heading to use for each wiki page is "Why It/He/She Sucks", with "The Only Redeeming Quality" if there is just one redeeming quality (no alterations are allowed). However, it could be "Bad Qualites" or "Why Their Business Sucks" for any websites that are in the "Average" category. The latter must contain valid and detailed reasons; do your best to avoid
  3. As quality control begins to apply stronger than ever, check out the tutorial on how to create a page, before creating an article.
  4. NO imagery depicting malicious propaganda or explicit elements.
  5. Avoid posting personal information.
  6. Do not insult, harass or bully any users on this site, users violating this rule will be warned, and banned should he/she choose to ignore the warning.
  7. If other users are being rude towards you, avoid insulting them in return and report them to an admin.
  8. Ignore trolls, as giving them attention will only fuel their attempts to pester you. Instead, report them to the admins.
  9. Do not create new categories. If you think a new category is needed, ask the admins. If your suggestion proves to be useful, they'll create it for you.
  10. Refrain from using profanity on pages unless it is used in a quote or is basically important. Swearing in the comments is fine as long as it isn't used to offend others.
  11. Never type way too much all-caps in pages for no good reason, as it makes pages look unprofessional. Using italics, bold text, or underlining is okay however, as long as it isn't overused.
  12. No criticism about a particular fanbase. The communities we discuss here are about internet culture and journalism.
  13. Do not go on these sites to attack it or harass its users.
  14. To any potential administrators: DO NOT delete any edit you consider inappropriate or of good quality (trolling and vandalism not included)! Try to negotiate or fix the edits first! Always assume good faith.
  15. Be as formal as possible when editing.
  16. You will always be able to argue about your ban on your message wall, unless what you did was unforgivable (doxxing, vandalism, as well as harassment, insulting and threatening even after multiple warnings issued).
  17. Be sure to check out websites such as DeepFreeze and GamerGate Wiki. For information before writing an article on any GamerGate boycotted website or journalist. https://archive.is/hjMpP#selection-3017.1-3019.1
  18. Do not send foe requests to any users, as it will likely cause drama.
  19. If you want to create a Sandbox page, do not tag your sandbox page with categories, as they will not only clutter the categories, they are only for actual articles.
  20. Sandboxes can't be used to contain articles which aren't allowed on the wiki, or alternate, personal version of already existing articles because that is seen as an attempt to bypass the wiki's quality control and admin management; the purpose of sandboxes is only to work on pages in preparation of uploading them to the main namespace of the wiki.
  21. Please do not use anybody else's last names articles without their knowledge. Doing so will result in blocks being handed out. (Besides, we already received a warning from a Steward. We do not need a repeat of what happened, at all. NO EXCEPTIONS.)
  22. For admins, please do not delete comments, blogs, or talk pages that contain criticisms of the wikis, as it will make us look like we can't handle criticism.
  23. Do not add any categories to a blog, as that will only clog up the wiki. Expect a block for doing it again.
  24. In order to comply with COPPA, you may only sign in if you are ages 13 or older. If we catch you saying your age and if it’s under 13, we may block you until you turn 13.
  25. Do not add the Good or Featured templates to pages without an admin's permission. Instead, nominate the article you think is worthy of one of the templates.
  • Anything that is already on the Fresh Websites Wiki: Self-explanatory.
  • IXL: Not rotten enough for the wiki, aside from its difficulty.
  • Sites about healthy eating: Controversial reasoning. Also, they do have points about the effects of certain foods.
  • "For Sale" sites: Beating a dead horse. Usually these are left behind after a site expires.
  • GDPR: It is a helpful internet privacy act.
  • Miraheze: It'd make the whole wiki ironic.
  • ISPs Ignoring Spambots/Malware: Filter avoidance exists for a reason.
  • Spambots: Difficult to discuss without troll feeding. Refer to Email Spam and Comment bots.
  • Any school filter: It's up to the school to determine how things are blocked/unblocked on their property, not us.
  • YouTube videos: To prevent clogging up the wiki.
  • TikTok videos: Would also clog up the wiki, plus it'd cause drama with whoever was involved in making these.
  • Any user or channel: Same as YouTube videos, to prevent clogging up the wiki. Plus, they might cause drama.
  • Any group of people: Can often not necessarily apply to just the internet
  • Anything that mainly has problems due to the site's userbase: Not really fair considering that this doesn't really affect the quality of the site, and plus, userbases are just as much of a drama-starting topic as fandoms and hatedoms.
  • Any wikis (FANDOM is the only exception due to it being a wiki hosting service): Would cause drama if an admin finds out their wiki is on this site, and don't really have much reception, leading the users making pages on wikis they hate.
  • Companies: While they may have a social media or website presence, most of their actions are done in the real world.
  • Anything that is determined by the site's user/fan base (DeviantArt, Rule 34, MyCast, etc.): The fanbase does not dictate the quality of the site, only the healthiness of the community.
  • Fetish art: Would qualify as kink shaming.
  • Rotten Tomatoes: Not rotten enough for the wiki, aside from vote-brigading.
