Hi everyone!! Whew.. I feel bad for being MIA for so long. Crazy deadlines at work, followed by crazy stuff going on for Relay For Life!!
Anway, I've finally caught up with the staff and join emails, as well as the forum transcripts. I'd like everyone to welcome our two newest members:
There were 5 other new character submissions, but they have been waiting on more information for a few weeks now. I'm starting to think that they changed their minds.
Also, for some reason the client that I use to create the nifty little stat charts isn't working for me! (super sad face) So those will be missing from the new bios until I'm able to use the client again.
For anyone that couldn't access the website on the 27th, I'm sorry about that. Our host server was being re-set and I had forgotten to post here that it would be temporarily down.
I will however tell you about these from now on! (not just tell myself that I will and then do nothing)
The next server maintenance will happen on the 7th. Here are the times:
Start: Thursday, March 7, 2013 2:00AM CST
End: Thursday, March 7, 2013 5:00AM CST
Lucky for us, our host server always does this things at times that most normal people are asleep. There shouldn't be any negative effects to the site, other than it just won't be up during those times.
But we'll all be back up and running at 5:10am that morning. So yay!
Bah!! Been busy again!
Anyway, I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays!! I know I did. (crazy crazy busy)
The staff hasn't quite had the time so far this year to be very active in chat. But we do have word from Kenny that some good ol RP will be happening in the forums!!
This is going to be our best area to play right now since none of us can get together at any one time anymore. (or so it seems)
For those of you who follow us on Facebook, I'll be sure to be updated that page to let you know when new RP action starts to take place, or when we are scheduling to do some quality chat RP!! (yeah, we'll actually be using that page. lol)
It's a week early, but Happy Holidays non-the-less!! Unfortunately I've been sick, to help top off my insanely busy month. (I've barely been home at all *sob*)
But there is some things going on! The staff is working on getting descriptions for the new cities and locations added to the map. Kenny has officially dusted Kid off the shelf and is ready to start RPing!! And our hosting fees have been paid for another 2 years! Woo!!
Kid isn't the only new character you'll find on the site either! I finally got off my lazy bum and uploaded all the new submissions for the past two months. ((I know!! That's so terrible that it took that long!!)) I waited until now, because I had been planing to get the new story going full force! This way if there were conflicts with the new bios, I could let them know before posting.
In terms of all other members who's character bios reflected heavily on the old story, please let me know if you would like any changes!! My own characters will be updated shortly. Everytime a character is updated, I will list it here on the main news feed so that everyone will have a change to get to know the characters again.
But on to the goods! Here are our newest members!!
It's official! The story has now been updated on the Story page at the top. You can now read what is going on. To partner with that, the Hierarchy & Rankings page has been updated to reflect the new story. There are no longer rebels, but now an assasin's guild.
I'll be sure to keep the old story available on the forums for anyone who would like to read it. It does contain information of Rea's history, and parts of it could come up in gameplay. It best to know where things started.
I'm sure there might be a new character or two laying around in my inbox, so I'll be sure to get that up at some point today as well.
If there are any questions, please let me or another staff member know. We might be hard to pin down, but we do answer emails!! lol
Neon's profile isn't quite official yet, as she needs to get with me or another staff member to work through the problem areas. But because she has been online a few times, I went ahead and put up her bio for other members to see.
Despite my better judgment for the lack of interest from the majority of members, I went ahead and posted the chat transcripts.
You can find them in the General category on the forums. All the records from last December to yesterday are posted. (soo much work....)
There are a few new bios that need to be put up as well, so hopefully sometime this weekend I can get that done.
Sorry again for my lack of presence on the site. Hopefully I'll be getting more time for it soon. Until then you can still reach me, and I can still squeeze in updates! Though I am VERY disappointedin the lack of activity in chat. *wags finger* Shame on all of you!
It's pretty sad. One whole month and only 5 votes were cast for if we wanted any chat transcripts on the forums.
Sadder still is that 2 of those votes were from staff.
Because we lacked enough votes, I will not be taking the time to place the transcripts on the forums. However!! You can still comment on the original poll thread to let us know if you still want the option!
I'm going to give it TWO WEEKS. If we get at least 2 or 3 written comments saying that you want to see the scripts then we will go ahead and do it! If not... then I guess no one is loved and no transcripts for you.
The end of the month is upon us, and we are still lacking the last three votes required before we start posting the chat transcripts onto the forums.
Please be sure to go and make your vote before time runs out! There is no telling when this will be offered again, so be sure to take advantage while you can!
On a side note, I want to appologize for my disapearance these past few weeks. I've just recently moved into a new place and and still in the process of getting everything settled before I'm back to my old routine. So please, be patient with me!!
In the meantime, I'm always available on facebook or via email!
There is a poll going on this month in the forums! (well there is usually a poll of some kind)
As the main updater, I've placed a poll up asking about people's thoughts on if we should start posting copies of the chat transcripts into the forums.
Members in the past (back when we ran Hyrbid Realms) used to get transcripts sent to their emails, but we kinda stopped doing that. And we know people miss them!
So instead of email, we're going to share them for all members to see! That means you can keep up with what's going on even when you can't be in chat.
I will not take the time to post them unless I know you want me to. So please head over to the forums to vote and let me know. Once we get enough votes (I'm really aiming for like 10-15 but will settle for 8) I'll start filtering through all the transcript records and get them posted!!
