(I know this would probably fit better in Post Your Request, but eh.)
Ok, so I was thinking about KRR these past few days… looking through the history of things and all. And I realized something.
I want to do either one of two things.
A. Update and contribute to KRR.
B. If that isn’t possible, then I want to make my own Kirby fansite.
Now, I know that people supposedly ‘don’t care anymore’. (At least, that’s what some people have said.) But guess what? I care.
I wouldn’t still be here after five (almost six) years if I didn’t care. And I feel like other people care too, it’s just that they don’t have much of a reason to visit. On your latest post on the main site, people commented on it, saying how they were happy to see the site back after it was broken last year. That shows that people care. That people still love this place. I know that KRR has had some (well, many) rough times, but maybe that can be put behind us. Maybe KRR can still be updated.
You said this a while back:
Basic HTML isn't hard, and PHP isn't necessary. That was the point of me automating everything on the backend. As I often mention, Bimblesnaff got his start here curating the splash page. You don't really have to do a lot to do something.
Well, I’m willing to learn. I want to do something. Like come up with ideas for a new Interactive Fandom contest. Or write some interesting Kirby-related articles. Some ideas I have for articles include theories, history of long-time features in Kirby games (such as copy abilities and sub-games), and regional differences in Kirby games. Maybe I could even help with the mailbag or something. Either way, I want to contribute.
I’d love to get in contact with you, Mints. Maybe through email or something. (By the way, does that ‘contact staff’ form at the bottom of the forum home page still work? I’m curious.)
If even then I can’t do anything, then I’d want to learn how to create my own, 2000’s style Kirby fansite. And no, it wouldn’t try to copy or ‘replace’ KRR. It’d be its own thing. But again, I would only try to make it if I wasn’t allowed to help out KRR.
Basically, what I’m saying is, please let me be your apprentice, Mints. There are no other active Kirby fansites currently out there. (Well, Kirby Informer exists, but that just barely counts considering it has barely any content and has a Twitter account with thousands upon thousands of followers that gets far more attention than the actual site.)
I hope you reply back.
Remind me to put something here later...
