A very open concept this time! I look forward to seeing where people take this one. Also, I don't recall this ever having been an IF contest at all. I was probably there for it, but dang, it would've been so long ago anyway.
Ah, I see. I do think I remember someone else hosting an IF contest once? I think it was Kirazy, but I honestly can't recall anything about its details.
Also, I feel like Prince Fluff and the Fairy Queen from Epic Yarn and Crystal Shards are also relevant rulers. Not sure if you left them out because they slipped your mind or if you intentionally left them out to emphasize antagonists.
Well, it has been dead for some years now. Even back five years ago, it was struggling on life support. Personal websites just can't compete against the likes of Facebook, Reddit, and other massive conglomerates.
Ya know, there's this amazing thing called email. You can contact me directly instead of leaving unrelated comments on articles. General venting on what everyone seems to do these days.
Forums are Mints' thing. Think they (and the oekaki?) were hosted on a separate server thing; I really don't know. The boards -- at least in internet time -- are dinosaurs, but it wouldn't make sense that they would just... break barring some removal on a user end. At least, to my knowing (which is few).
Anyhoo, I'll pass the word along to him, but he works a lot, so no telling the turn-around time.
Oh, yes. I do nothing. Say, who was it that left the site? Who was it that never updated even when they allegedly "worked" here? Oh, that's right: everyone who isn't me.
Sounds like some form of cognitive dissonance. You already made up your mind regarding the outcome of an event that you had never once performed.
You know, I got a question for you (before I delete this irrelevant string of comments): why are you here? All you ever do is complain that the site is dead due to it literally being dead for a few years (jeez, the same years that I wasn't here. coincidence?). You don't have to be here if you don't want to be; no one is forcing you.
