    I am crying vicariously through your crying emojis. They just about sum up the situation. Though it’s too bad there isn’t an angry sobbing emoji. We need about fifty of those.

    You have a website? That’s pretty cool! I’m totally up for relocating, but I don’t currently have discord.

    Do not be anxious about tomorrow; tomorrow will be anxious about itself.

    We should write an appeal. And get the whole Story Embers community to sign it.

    Well…I don’t exactly have a finished website I was just practicing layout design and working on something I might do for my WIP so it’s very much under construction but I guess it’ll really motivate me to finish it if there’s activity there and I have to look at it every day lol. And I think I got the forum up and running!!

    Anyway please critique it and tell me what I should fix or clean up or anything on the website I’m compiling a list of things to fix up XDD

    @hannahrenner

    I saw a suggestion in the comments of the announcement about having members of the forum moderate it instead of the site team. Maybe they’d consider doing that with enough feedback from all of us??

    Maybe it’s worth a shot! Where do we post feedback then?

    I mean maaaaaaybe.

    I honestly don’t know. We don’t know how long they’ve been debating this decision. Or what the goal is. Or how many people are really needed to moderate.

    Heck, I have not a clue how to moderate a forum! Or how much labor that takes. It sucks that this is going. And I don’t like it. But honestly it almost seemed inevitable? The more I think about it? They’ve been pushing more and more in a direction: it is time for them to drop something and refocus! But that is never a fun thing to do. I hope they don’t loose too many people from this.

    Still, the engagement they are getting from Patreon might be what pushed this move: if there are enough people there and not enough people running Story Embers, I mean, logically speaking, the effort should be put where the money is. That is good business. On the other hand, the forum is a safe place for us and I feel like it should stay open. For free. Lots of people aren’t made of money and they are targeting young writers!

    There are pros and cons and we just don’t have the information to properly weight it. I’m just bitter because I was only just getting comfortable being online like this. 😭

    Yeah, you’re right. I’m just bummed since I was really looking forward to interacting with people on here.

    @reveriewriter … and @everyone?

    My little sister @this-is-not-an-alien set this up. It’s barely up at the moment, but it’s supposed to be this character castle continued. Well, rebooted, since we were doing that anyway. If you want to – no pressure!

    @everyone..?

    I saw another post about a forum pretty similar to this one, there’s already quite a few Story Embers people on there and I think it’s run by someone on here

    I’m one of the admins at Writer’s Vision. 😛 I’m sure we’d love to have you, but there is a rule against role-playing for various reasons. JSYK. ;P I’ve notified the founder, Kayti, though, and we’ll see what input she has!!

     

    I’m so sad to hear about SE’s forum closing, though… :/ It’s very much a nostalgic thing for me. XD
