Hear ye hear ye, here's the news!
I want to apologize for the lack of warning over the post purge. Defeated the whole point of these announcements. Please read my post about it just above this post, and don't be afraid to tell me how you're feeling. You can absolutely be mad and don't need to apologize for it.
A lot of things are being removed from the site like the chat and some MBs as I'm sure you've all noticed. We've moved pretty much all our resources over into building a new project, the one that I've been teasing. This is why we've had to cut down some older stuff that required maintenance. What's coming is a new world that is basically everything you can do here.... but more. You'll have more freedom in how you present yourself as there are avatars, you'll be able to chat with each other, have new games to play, and I'm planning a ton of new events and activities that will be in it. I want you to know we're not just getting rid of stuff for no reason or without any plans to have new things for you.
@Melissa I like most pies but pecan pie has to be my favorite. I didn't used to like it, but like a switch turned on in my brain now I really do.
@Bracha Favorite childhood memory is making flash movies and other derpy content with my brother. They were.....creative. Never had nightmares (yet) about a reanimated turkey coming after me, but that sounds terrifying. I sure hope it's rust! Yeah, it's definitely rust!
@Catte Nice to meet you too Catte! I only use lifetime bans for accounts that don't provide a positive impact on the forum community. Meaning: fake/spam accounts, people who keep bullying others, people who join the forums and really quickly cause a ton of issues like their first post is hate speech, etc. What has happened in the past is someone creates an alt account, trolls, and gets IP banned. This makes it impossible for their original account to access the forums on the same internet.
@Kari @Chu @Christy @Safire @Kathy @Hazel @Billy I want to personally apologize to you all, this is not the way I wanted a forum clean-up to go.
One day you go to school and your teacher walks in with someone who looks familiar. They announce there's a new transfer student to the school and you realize why the new student looks like someone you recognize - they're one of your OCs!
A winter pun-off thread by Catte seems like a fun way to keep warm, at least for those living where it does get cold! /347151 (I have friends from Brazil where it's so warm in December, I love the snow but still...I'm jealous!)
