The future of WCF

Post by Adelaide on January 21st 2016, 03:32

Greetings everyone.

So to start with, I would like to apologize for my inactivity. There have been a great many personal matters in my life the past year that have made it difficult for me to find the time to be online. I have, however, received your messages about the activity levels on the site. I can see there are many of you who are quite enthusiastic about rebuilding it and bringing it back to life for the next generations of warriors. I am very pleased to see so many of you eager to return to the forum. I will address that momentarily.

I believe that I should first introduce myself once again. I am Adelaide, your forum administrator and the owner of the website. I do however go by another name many of you are more familiar with. For those of you veterans my name is Snowlily or for those newer to the forum, Scarlett. There are also a few of you who know this already but I have been married and now have a baby of my own to care for which now occupies a majority of my time.

There have been a few of you now who have messaged me about a change in the staff to remove those who are inactive and establish a new order and I believe if there are those of you that committed to the forum after this much time, then I could commit to a change in staff and do my part to re-establish the forum. I would first like to open up this topic for suggestions and a discussion about what you would like to see on the forum from here on out.

Please feel free to share any thoughts you have and remember to be kind to one another. There are no bad ideas. I will be looking out for new potential staff members. Smile Best wishes and happy hunting.

Adelaide

Welcome back, Adelaide! Iii guess I'd go with, for suggestions, a little more communication? Like. In the roleplays and forum in general. Everyone's got a hard time staying active, and the rps in particular are kinda hard to deal with when everyone's split and not really? Talking outside of the rp? A few people, sure, but It'd be easier to have discussion so everyone knew where they were at, instead of just, all of our little separate inclade groups where maybe one person who can get on or is okay posts for another person. 'cause that's important, but. Yeah. PM's aren't quite the same thing, really. I don't? Actually know if that's related to the forum or just to what'd make the forum easier and more active in my mind and wow I'm not thinkin' good.

In any case. I guess in general I'd think that making the forum more of a... community? To deal with? Would make everything go smoother and funner and I hear stories about when it was and people talked all the time and anyway. Just, banding together, I guess, to make it more tight-knit so that even if its not active right now it will be and people are brought together and there's a solid base on which to build. Uh. I'm bad at suggestions and other people I'm --

edit: Oh and half-cynically and sarcastically I'd like to suggest some kinda rollcall or somethin' jus where people can chime in easily about who's active at that point in time, and if people have certain schedules and restrictions that's listed so it's not an awkward dance where we all keep stepping on each other's paws.

First off welcome back Adelaide. I guess I can start by maybe helping Moonsong with your suggestions. For the first point, what I got out of what you were saying was that you're suggesting that there be some way for RPers to communicate with each other more effectively, especially when the OCs are in several groups within the RP. And for that I actually have a suggestion that could be done using what another sight I go to uses. What they have is an OOC (out of character, if it needs clarifying) section to their RP forum, where each RP can have a designated OOC thread specifically for members to communicate outside of a RP as a whole group. That way everybody within an RP can communicate with each other quickly with questions or suggestions, and even applying for the RP can be handled there so that the RP thread itself is exclusively for posts in the RP.

And I agree with your second point, Moonsong, about trying to be a more tight-knit community. It would be nice if we could get back to the days of everybody talking in the forum and the chatbox, though I imagine that'll be tricky with differences in personal schedules and timezones.

Also, as a suggestion of my own, I think it'd be nice if there could be some sort of event like a competition of some sort or maybe an ORPG, granted we don't have many members for one. But that's also partly just me wanting to be a part of an ORPG, since the last one ended right as I joined and The Ghosts Are Real never came to fruition. I feel like these would help those of us who are still here to become a more "tight-knit" community as Moonsong suggested and would show that the forum is attempting to revive once more.

Yes...yes...yes...I agree with it all! I haven't been on here in ages! And welcome back, Snowlily! I guess I would be considered a veteran, being a part of this forum for....8 years this August! I hope to see this forum revived, and back to what it was like in "the old days." If you know what I mean. Anyway, I suggest sending out a mass message to all the people that have an account on this forum, telling them about the revival. Just a suggestion. Again, Welcome back!

Sweat Oh no, am I not gonna be a GM anymore? Damn. I like the green in my name. Rock
Well, I have definitely been very inactive c:

Hiya Snow. It's good to know that you're doing well! I think the main issue is that we don't have enough active members, and all the divided clans make it difficult for everyone to roleplay in their own clans other than the recent RPGs eg. "Bringing Back WCF From the Dead" I totally LOL-ed at the title. Bite

Idk, it would be fun if someone created an RPG with a new clan where everyone could be part of the same thing and unleash their creativity and stuff. (Damn, I miss being in the Masqueraders. I forgot what happened to it. But the plot of it was pretty cool. Maybe we could resurrect that into an RPG? Razz)

PEACE OUT.

I-- maybe the timeout on the chat could be made longer than 10 minutes, if possible? It makes it hard to carry on a conversation, really.

Ayy hello hello guys Very Happy I've been super inactive as well due to school, research, and life in general. As much as I hate to say it, I feel that I've (long) outgrown Warriors - though the community aspect of this site and the friendships I've made here are, of course, timeless. In all probability I will rarely visit from now on if ever, so I agree with your proposal to change out the staff and I'm sure the new staff will do great.

(tangent: my school just chose junior club executives for next year since the seniors are graduating - I was selected as a Research Organization exec :DDD - and since then the seniors have been calling us the baby execs. That's kind of how I feel writing this post. Can't wait to see the baby WCF staff grow and succeed :'''))

I just have one minor selfish request Sweat this site has been a part of my life since the beginning, for more than 5 years now - I'm a veteran, like Thunderclaw said (btw Thunderclaw I'm pretty sure the site hasn't even existed for 8 years LOL). I think it would be nice if we had a badge or something for the oldies/former staff so that we don't just disappear into the abyss lol. I know this sounds pretty unimportant/trivial, but I'm feeling nostalgic about all the memories I've made on this site.

This community has been such a huge part of my life, and I sincerely hope it will live on and prosper.

With much love,
Noxe <3

Eh, called a hyperboly. (I think that's how you spell that) and I actually checked, and I joined in 2012. Not as long as I thought, but I must say, these four years have been some of the hardest (and happiest) of my life. The happiness is in part thanks to all of you. Thanks!

It's hyperbole, Thunderclaw Smile And I feel like this entire thing is just a cycle at this point. A mod or admin will get on the site and older members will come back for a couple of weeks and just disappear again, leaving the site barren. What can we do to try to keep this from happening?

Hiya guys! I've been lurking on the site still occasionally over the past few years, but it seems like this is my opportunity to give some input to my old friends and the new recruits! Looks like this post was a few weeks ago, but I'll post anyways because I'm a veteran too and like Noxe said, this community used to be such a big part of my life as well and I'm so happy to see it might be revived! Razz

I miss and cherish the friendships I had with the people here. I had such great memories that'll be dear to me forever, and I hope a new generation of members can experience the connections I had with people on here too. I've been so busy with my life as well lately, and I have most definitely outgrown warriors, so I probably won't be part of any revival project either Sweat hopefully one day though I'll log in to find a lot of people on the chat!

And a huge congratulations Adelaide on your child and marriage! (: I have an old memory of you talking about your future and aspirations in life and it's so insane how much everyone has grown. Congrats to you Noxe for your achievement too! As for me, I'll be attending university in the fall, crazy enough. So good to hear you everyone's been doing good lately.

Well I guess Torrentheart's officially an 'elder'. I'll miss being the RiverClan deputy, haha Razz

I can't seem to stress how much this site means to me enough, but thank you everyone for such a wonderful few years and welcome to the members I never got the pleasure to meet! I'll probably continue lurking around every once in a while, but until then, peace out Sneer/Grin

Sincerely,
Torrentheart (:

Oh my goodness, I just noticed Dragonclaw posted on here, wow, it's been forever. Same goes for you, Torrent! I've missed everyone.
Why is everyone growing? Oh my gosh, I remember when I was 11 and I joined WCF. I'm almost 16 now. It's insane how time flies.

Oh wow, congratulations Snowlily on your new family! I wish you the best of luck, sending good vibes your way.

Tch, Dragonclaw, don'tcha know you aren't supposed to break the forum rules?  Sneer/Grin Hahah

My situation is much like Torrentheart's (how ya doin' buddy, long time no see) in the respect that I probably won't be much help rebuilding the site, but I will log on from time to time to see how things are doing, and check up on people.

If there are any old friends that wish to speak me, please send me a PM with your contact info. I'd love to get back in contact with you guys.

Take care! Wave (looking at these emotions brings me back, omo)
