Mod Announcement: Please Read

This has, unfortunately, been a while in coming. It’s been pretty obvious for a while now - the game has stalled. (This is Kia in particular stepping up to take responsibility for that - it got away from me and I failed to go after it. I owe you all a pretty big apology.)

To that end, we have three options:

1. New mod team. The current mods hand over the game - all the plot notes, the plans, the passwords, everything - to a new mod team. We’d still be here, but we wouldn’t be running the show anymore. This option is predicated on you guys wanting to take over the game/be the new mods.

2. Abbreviated gameplay and endgame. We’d pretty much scrap further plans for the game, retool endgame to fit the point where we’re at now, and run endgame. It would allow a story resolution for the game and players.

3. End the game as is. This one’s pretty much exactly what it says on the tin.

It’s up to you guys at the moment: how would you like to see this go? The mods will do our best to work with whatever you choose.

Man, I don't even know what I really want right now... Other than knowing I would not step up to mod. I've been sorta in a state of near-dropping so I'm not sure if I could bring myself to step up for #2. I... hm.

I admit that this doesn't surprise me.

As of right now, my vote goes for either 2 or 3. I wouldn't mind some closure, but at the same time, my drive is fairly low as well.

That being said, it's been a fun time.

I was wondering whether this would be posted sooner or later. I will be sorry to see the game go, as I do love the setting and I love everyone in this bar, but my own waning interest has been pretty apparent for a while now.

If we were to go with a specific option, I would prefer to aim for 2 over 3 - as long as the mod team could confirm that they'd be on deck and keeping up with the running of events leading into the ending.

If we go with 2, would past players get an option to come back to see the game out, perhaps with a short-form app like the one provided to potential appers from the 4th wall event? And would the mods consider making this place an open sandbox later once things are wrapped, regardless of outcome chosen?

Sadly, once again, I'm not surprised to see this. Honestly, I've been going 'what do I do now, what can I even do, are things still happening here' for a little while now: I want to play in this game, I want to play with everyone around here, but it's felt a little like I've not known if there's been a game to play in.

As I said on Plurk, I'm willing to help out with modding: however, I can't promise that I'd be able to help until the end of September, by which time it might be too late. (Lot of travel type plans that are up in the air at the moment.) If it can last until then, sure, I'd be able and happy to help out! But the short term's the problem there...

So. The main thing I want here is to get some decent closure and a decent ending. Which means 2 if we can be sure that it'll actually all play out and work out. I just don't want this thing to end cold, you know? And I'd like to at least know what the overall plans were...

(The idea of an open sandbox after endgame does appeal, too. Perhaps more of a 'characters can come here in their dreams' than the current full jamjar?)

I'm in favour of #2 provided the mod team are sure they can handle it - I'm just concerned that it might fizzle out as well. Going to open musebox format seems like a good compromise to me.

I'd cheerfully pitch my hat into the ring for modding, so that's where my vote lies, but I can see there's really not enough support for that option thus far. I'd like to at least see an ending and some closure.

Can't mod. So my vote is for 2 or 3. Sorry to hear it...but I suppose I kind of new it was coming.

I wouldn't mind seeing the game continue if new mods want to step in to keep it going. If not, option two seems best, though I do like the sandbox ideas as well.

I think option 2 is probably best in my opinion...I wish I could mod, but I really don't think I'd have the time.

Soma and Aqua are, at the moment, in the process of figuring out a way to lure out the person (or persons, or undefined other) responsible for everything going on. If y'all wanna use that for a setup for option 2, I'm perfectly fine with that.

I wish I could say that continuing the game under new mods would breathe life back into the game... but I've been in this situation too many times now not to recognize the signs. I think it would be for the best to try and wrap things up while there's still enough people playing to do so. It's been a fun game, and I hate to see it go, but...

Option 2 gets my vote, with 3 a close second.

I'd stick around if there was a new mod team, but looking at the way the player base is... I don't know if a new team is enough.

Honestly, I would like to see the closure of 2 if it's going to close, though I'd like to see a way for people to come back for the end if it goes that way.

Maybe with an open sandbox option in a new comm afterward for those who'd like the idea of continuing with the setting as well. Wouldn't take too much to do something like that, and if it didn't get used or fizzled out, at least the game itself wouldn't fizzle out.

I never did get to say earlier...but I had a feeling things would come up. RL is important and it really sucks when it decides to butt in on fun things, but yeah, this is okay. Modding isn't easy work, so it's understandable. If something has to happen, it has to happen.

That being said, I've been pretty terrible keeping track of this game myself. As for the options given, I'm okay with option 2 or 3 happening. I'm just glad I got to play for as long I have.
