Hello, members of Crucen. These are your moderators bringing you--not an event--but an unfortunate announcement.

This may seem a bit sudden to some of you, but throughout this past few weeks most of you must have taken note of something very important:

This community is dying.

As fun as being the moderators for this game has been, and as much as we love every single one of our players and wish to give them the best roleplaying experience they have ever had, this is something that can not be easily ignored. As moderators, this is our fault for not giving this game the attention it deserved and not planning ahead of time in case we hit a stump like this. The events that we can offer to our players at this time are not fit to get this game through this sort of inactivity without major renovations.

It is for this reason that today, July 12th, 2009, we have decided to place this game on hiatus. All activity will be suspended until we have finally pulled our act together and given this game a proper direction. This may last a month or more, and there is always the possibility that this game will never reopen.

For now there is no clear answer as to what will happen to your characters once the game reopens: if they continue off from where they left, start over again, or simply die due to a second Restart--the possibilities are endless at this moment. If you decide to stick with us throughout this hiatus, you need not reapply when we open once again.

Please direct any questions to this post. Our deepest apologies to those who only recently applied, and we thank you for staying with us until today.

ACTIVITY CHECK RESULTS
First of all, congratulations to all of those who have passed this month's Activity Check!

Just as last time, e-mails have been sent out to all of those who failed the Activity Check, but no one will be removed until June 28th. This short period of time will be used to give those who have failed the Activity Check a chance to reply to the e-mail that was sent to them.

Please be sure to check this list carefully. If you are marked as "Purged" and did not receive an email or believe you are here due to a mistake on our part, please send us a Private Message through LiveJournal or preferably, send us an email at crucen(dot)moderators(at)gmail(dot)com.

If you find yourself on the Purged list erroneously, do not reply here. Reply to the email that was sent to you, and if you did not receive that message, please follow the instructions provided above.

Characters in the Purged list with a green check-mark () have had their player reply to the email with a valid reason as to why they were unable to reply and have gone on an emergency hiatus, or are simply there by an accident on our part.

Thank you for being here with us for yet another month.

01: Anyone who was on hiatus and characters that joined from June 3rd to the present date are exempt from the Activity Check.
02: Posts must be from May 17th to June 17th.
03: Comment threads do not count.

05: Please fill out the form below. If you have multiple characters, reproduce the second part of the form (the one relevant to your characters).

If you need to go officially on hiatus, do so now. If you need to drop your character, do so now. Your moderators do not keep up with the OOC community religiously. It is not our responsibility if you announced your hiatus or drop there but did not comment on the entries, and we missed it.



Also, on that note the poll to decide if applications should be screened or not is now officially closed.

Thanks to all of those who voted as well as those who gave their opinion on the matter. All of the applications will be unscreened shortly.

Not an event, but a question for all of you.

Lately we have been getting messages related to the Application page, mostly complaints about not getting notifications about whether not they were Accepted, Denied or asked to revise certain sections of their application. We have also noticed that many possible players have been too scared to apply at crucen due to the applications being screened, as they do not know the standards we have for Accepting an application.

Because of this we want to ask you, the players, to vote on the following poll to decide if applications should be screened or not.

Poll #1415402 Application screening
This poll is closed.

Should applications be screened or not?

Yes.
0(0.0%)
No.
5(50.0%)
It doesn't really matter to me.
4(40.0%)
Other. (Comment)
1(10.0%)



On that note: please keep a close eye on this community as another event will be posted soon, as well as the next Activity Check.

Thank you for your time.

-At exactly 7:39PM, anyone who is tuned into F.A.R.T. Channel 9 will be able to witness the following segment.-

"...NOW WE MOVE ONTO LUCA HYDE AND VIOLA SUMMERS WITH A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!"

-On screen you will be able to see two women: Luca Hyde on the right and Viola Summers on the left.-


Greetings dear viewers! This is Luca Hyde.

And this is Holy summers!

And today we are reporting to you live from the studios here at Crucen, bringing you a very special announcement directly from the N.O.N.E. Headquarters.

As many, if not all of you know during the last two weeks we have been experiencing strange phenomenons, raging from a sudden and unexplained cyclone to a unidentified something crashing into the Sur Subway Station and nearly obliterating it. Today our own Representative at the N.O.N.E. Headquarters will be bringing us some important discoveries related to these events, as well as some very vital information directly from the Head Chairman of N.O.N.E.


-The screen divides into two panels: one with Viola Summers which is marked as "Crucen" and a completely black panel marked as "N.O.N.E.".-


Now without any further delay, we bring to you the Representative of Crucen, live from N.O.N.E.!

-However once the black panel changes, it only reveals white noise and a barely discernible figure. Viola Summer looks confused for a few seconds before she places a finger on her earpiece and nods. The second panel marked as "N.O.N.E." disappears and now both Luca Hyde and Viola Summers can be seen onscreen.-


...Well viewers, it seems as if the connection between our studios and the N.O.N.E. Headquarters has been disrupted. This is mostly likely due to the recent weather conditions or technical difficulties on behalf, and will be resolved as soon as possible.

Now. Moving onto a very special segment relating to the strange birth of two pairs of Siamese twins from the same mother, and...

-The program will continue normally. Around 10:00PM the anchorman in charge of the news segment will take a few minutes to announce that the Representative of Crucen will attempt to reschedule and the subject will not be touched upon again for the rest of the day.-

Sunday, June 07, 2249.

After a week of continuous drizzling throughout all of the country the temperature has managed to drop a few degrees despite the fact that we are very well in summer, reconstructions of the streets and buildings affected are still in order and the city seems to have recovered significantly since the cyclone. If one were to ignore the fact that the media still seems to be in an uproar due to the lack of logical explanation as to where exactly the cyclone came from, rumors regarding why various constellations have disappeared are abound and theories linking the Restart to this can be heard everywhere you go, it would be easy to pretend absolutely nothing happened.

Or at least until 2:48AM.

Some may hear whirring and others may hear grinding--it doesn't matter. As soon as the noise starts up those awake may feel the temperature lower by several degrees, which will be directly followed by the drizzling suddenly converting into heavy raining accompanied by lightning. The noises will still continue to be perfectly audible to all of the AU characters and any OU characters with sharp hearing, otherwise it will be completely drowned out by the rain.

It is not until 3:01AM that the rain lightens significantly in Norte, Centro, Oeste and Este, but it will remain unchanged in Sur. Coincidentally, as the noise dies down so will the rain until it completely stops throughout all of Crucen at 3:20AM. Maybe some will look outside only to find a perfectly normal sky, others may sigh out of relief that whatever that was is over and the remaining may simply continue sleeping.

--well let me tell you something, you are relaxing far too early.

As soon as the clock marks 3:21AM, a loud crash will be heard throughout all of the country accompanied by a light tremor. Several minutes later police sirens will be heard throughout all of the city, all heading to Sur. It is not until the 8:00AM news report in F.A.R.T. Channel 9 that all of Crucen will discover what had happened.

Something crashed into the Sur subway station nearly destroying it completely, and whatever it was is now gone.

Sunday, May 31, 2249.

Somewhere around 1:27AM the electricity will go out in Sur, Este and Oeste. Those that are awake may notice something very peculiar by looking outside: the sky seems to have taken a strange green tint to it, and various constellations that are visible from Crucen at this time of year seem to be gone. Nothing else out of the ordinary however, it's not like a cyclone will suddenly appear in Este without any signs of it ever coming.

--oh wait.

At exactly 1:34AM a cyclone will appear near the shelters in Este. There will be next to no signs of it coming, unless you consider the soft whirring sounds you will hear a few minutes prior to it hitting a sign. The cyclone will last from 1:34AM to 1:58AM, migrating from Este to Sur and then Oeste before finally disappearing. It will destroy various buildings and roads along the way, but all major buildings--as in, the ones listed in the location list--will still be standing if not a little damaged.

The sky seems to have returned to it's normal color, casualties are surprisingly low, there are buildings to rebuild, roads to repair and reports to be made. The electricity will continue working normally in Centro in Norte--making it nearly impossible to notice the color the sky had taken before the storm--and the electricity in Sur, Este and Oeste will return before 8:00AM.

Now go on, quietly wonder how this happened--or go into a state of panic because of it.

The choice is yours to make.

Not an event for now, but we do have a list of news, updates, ideas and issues (mostly F.A.Q. related) for all of you.

This post will be placed underneath an LJ-cut to spare your friends list. Of course we will be including a condensed version of this post at the end for anyone who is in a hurry, but we implore you to read the whole post. There will be no "I didn't know" afterward.

We apologize for the slight disorganization in this post. For those curious, the next row of events should be starting up by Saturday with luck.

Thank you.


New Event Suggestions Page, Event Polls, Moderator Inbox Changes, Community Updates, etc.Collapse )


In short:
- We have a new page for event suggestions.
- Depending on how many event ideas we get, we may or may not have polls for the players to pick events.
- The Moderator Inbox is now solely for issues related to the game.
- The possibility of a day for memes on crucen_tldr.
- Your moderators attempt to clear up some misunderstandings.
- Any feedback you have in regards to this whole post is appreciated.
