*Update (March 8, 2015) - AP is officially dead even among pro users. I just visited the site.
I was shocked when I saw the above message from AP (Anime Paper). One of my favorite resources of anime wallpapers will be shutting down for "normal users" like me. Well, I don't have a pro account so I could not access AP anymore. It's really sad to read such news (which led me to blog about it).
A developed love and hatred
Over the years, I both liked and hated AP. I liked it because I could download high quality anime wallpapers there. Unlike other similar sites, AP's gallery was not a gallery full of trash. When it comes to anime wallpaper submissions, AP has a set of very high standards.
On the other hand, I hated AP because it rejected my first ever made anime wallpaper. Haha! But I admit, my photoshop skills during that time still suck. However, that incident made me to hone my photoshop skills more (oh well, maybe a little).
I had a goal of getting an approved anime wallpaper in AP because having an approved anime wallpaper there would only mean that you're a great artist, too, like the others. But I guess, I can't do that anymore. So long AP!
