First of all, I'd like to apologize for my lack of involvement with this community, and I really have no good excuses for as to why. I created this place. I need to take better care of it.
Just a few things I would like to address.
One - if you've completed a claim or if you can't finish it, please don't make a separate post for it. There is a thread for dropping claims and for telling me that you've completed your round of challenges. I'm more likely to see the "I'm done" or "I quit" reply in my inbox faster than I will checking the community's posts. It may seem like a bit of a hassle but that is part of the rules.
Two - I will be purging claims that have not been updated on May 1. There will be no extensions granted for this round of purging since I was to have purged the claims list at the beginning of the month. I feel since I've not been keeping up in my mod duties, you've been given extra time. (This means if you've got something written, now would be the time to post what you've written in order to keep your claim.) I will be getting back on to a regular schedule for updating the claims list and clearing out "dead" claims so please check the bio page for when the claims purge is to take place.
Three - I really do wish for people to have fun with the themes and the writing/art. Having fun is the main reason for the creation of this community and its sister communities. If it no longer feels like fun for you, then please do yourself a favour and pull back for a while. I don't want members to hate the stories/artwork they're trying to create.
Finally, I would like to say I don't care if you want to post your stories and/or artwork on another website, like deviantArt and fanfiction.net. The creations are yours to show wherever you want. Just make sure you let others know where the themes came from. ;)
The claims list has been updated so please take a look at it and let me know if there's something awry with what's on there. In the meantime, enjoy the works posted and have fun!
