Please sign this petition in support of the initiative to stop the cancellation of the Android/iOS application known as “Art With Friends” (formerly Draw Something 2) which is scheduled to come to an end on April 1st, 2015.

The Problem:

 Near the end of January 2015, select “Art With Friends” users began receiving an in-game notice that the applications game developer, known as Zynga, would be ending the game on March 15, 2015. In a subsequent notice, this date was changed to April 1, 2015. The initial notice directed customers to a “Support Site” link, yet that link only directed them to a blank page within Zyngas’ community website. Beginning February 1, 2015, the link directed customers to a formal announcement of the game's end. Prior to this announcement, many customers suspected (and hoped) that the initial announcement had been a hack or hoax.

 Our Initiative:

 We the users, artists, and/or supporters of both Android/iOS applications known as, “Art With Friends” do hereby request that the cancellation date be rescinded and the game salvaged by either Zynga, itself or another interested party. If the application is not salvaged and subsequently reaches its end, we pledge to cease all activity associated with any and all Zynga applications, both now and in the future, and to delete any and all accounts held with this company. As loyal Zynga customers, we feel as if our many comments and suggestions for the success of the game went unheard, and that the company no longer deserves our business if this decision is not overturned or remedied.

 Suggested Discourse:

 As regular users of Zynga products, we want it to be known that we prefer to work with Zynga to remedy this situation. We are a diverse, global community with many different backgrounds both personal and professional. If Zynga discloses issues leading to ending the application, we are willing to collaborate to find solutions beneficial to all parties. As artists, we have vested much more than gaming interests in “Art With Friends."
