Animation Source news
Minions Source is officially open!

Written by BaltoSeppala :


Hello everybody!  I would like to pass along the happy news that Minions Source is now open for your enjoyment and posting!  Mightybalto1925, -Legolas10- and I have worked hard on producing a great and interesting source site for you Despicable Me and Minions fans and we hope you'll come by often and have a look at all the great stuff on offer to you (and that you'll spread the word to other fans)!  SEE THE EDIT BELOW...


Why "Minions Source" and not "Despicable Me Source"?  We've been asked about that once or twice.  Well, we wanted to go with current name recognition...and the latest movie in theaters, and being promoted and marketed like crazy on the internet, is Minions.  But rest assured, our source covers all the movies in the franchise...including both Despicable Me movies and their accompanying mini-movies!

We've got several key features that not only provide you with information you might find elsewhere (but in a whole new way), but we've also got a few unique features not found on other Despicable Me sites generally!  Here's a quick summary:

-- What Is A Minion? gives you a good look at the minions themselves, and the various kinds!  This is something you won't find elsewhere on the internet (to our knowledge...and we looked!)

-- The Evil Minions allows you to see the darker aspect of the minions, when they were temporarily transformed into those grunting, twitching purple (but still hilarious!) monstrosities seen in Despicable Me 2!

-- The Minion Language gives you a breakdown of the vaguely-familiar language used by the minions in the movies...with more information than you'll find on most other internet pages about it!

-- How To Be A Villain presents a look at four books, out there on book sellers' shelves, and available from online book sellers, which give a tongue-in-cheek guide to becoming a supervillain!  You won't find this on any other Despicable Me or Minions site either (well, they're not licensed merchandise, or related directly to the movies, but they are great reading)!  Ever wanted to envision yourself as Gru, Dr. Nefario, Vector, El Macho or Scarlet Overkill?  Here's where you can start!  (They'd make a great resource for fan creations too!)

There's plenty more as well, and more material is on the way!  The production section for Despicable Me has some great production art and videos, and each multimedia section has great video clips sections!  We're working on expanding those sections when the time allows, so keep watching!

We hope that there will be frequent activity on the source, plenty of new fan material, and lots of discussion!

EDIT: We have updated the CSS information on this source, and changed some text colors to make things easier to read.  Some of the white hyperlink text was being swallowed by the yellow background, and then some of the yellow text likewise.  We settled for all text, pretty much, being dark purple, except for a few specific instances, and then all hyperlinks of a burgundy red (rather like Gru's "delicious line of jams and jellies".  lol  Hopefully that will solve any readability issues.  Thanks for your patience!

O' Cap'n My Cap'n!
Artemis - thanks for your comment! We talked about that at length, and we do agree with you to a point (even steet had a very relevant opinion on this). In the end, we wanted to go with name recognition. And the latest movie is Minions. So people are currently identifying with that. Of course, there is word that a third Despicable Me movie is due in 2017 (and will probably be a tying together of Minions and the first Despicable Me, I would imagine...showing the minions meeting and going to work for Gru).

This is basically social media marketing. We're using the most current movie name, and all the recognition it's currently getting, as a way of springboarding and drawing attention to the source. Of course, we will definitely take your thoughts into account, and maybe see if there's anything we can do to change it before Despicable Me 3 comes out!

Thank you!

I love the fact that Despicable me has made its way to the sources but I canít help think that it should have been the main focus of the source.

I havenít seen the minions film and I bet itís great but, considering it is a spin off/prequel of Despicable me I thought that the source should mainly evolve around Despicable me.

Alike The lion king source, The lion king film is the main focus, then itís sequels (the lion king 2) and prequels (The lion king 3/ 1 and a half).

Finally, another point would be popularity. It has been said that the Minions movie has been a popular movie worldwide. However, the minions wouldnít really have their current glory if Despicable me hadnít been introduced (In my opinion anyway, I think many people may disagree with this point).

Even if no changes are made, which I wouldnít be disappointed by, the sources are quite a busy place, I hope my points are considered. c;

letís go lesbians!
I'll be honest, I was pretty jazzed when Minions was opened to the public. I do wish there hadn't been too many issues with the colors like there were. Thankfully, you don't have to worry about it anymore. Hopefully, it'll stay that way.

I'll be doing some changes to AS at some point, in order to improve readabilty, by adding an outline to text. (this is now supported by most browsers, which wasn't the case back in 2008 when AS was started)

The issues with the text colors have been resolved.

Thanks, Troll! Despite the limitations the site has graphically, we did our best to try and produce something that would be unique to AS style-wise.

O' Cap'n My Cap'n!
We're working on that now. Perhaps we can do something with the hyperlink colors, which appears to be the problem. They show up as a dull white, which is not conducive to working with many background colors

Thanks, Troll! Yeah, there are a few issues on text colors. I have let Mighty know...

The layout is nice, I really like the minions on news tabs, it's a nice touch unique among other sources. But I'd reccomend some CSS colour changes. The text that appears on yellow background (return links on fanart/fanimages and option to hide rolling banners) is barely visible.
