April 2021 Newsletter


Many changes that are happening are happening in order to make way for future gifts and events within the group. We understand the member base’s frustrations at slow changes and wait times, but setting up events does take time so we urge all members to hold this in mind when expressing their thoughts. Complaints are not suggestions; please make sure any future suggestions offer solutions that will ultimately benefit the group as a whole and that do not bring down any individual members.

Along with the toll the year has taken on us, we are planning for our future as an ARPG especially as we try to completely detach ourselves from DeviantART. We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we iron out the kinks and try to make sure that once we open a system, everything will run smoothly without any more need for adjustments.
  • From now on Notes on DeviantART are CLOSED. The Admin team will no longer be looking at the notes on DeviantART as we try to distance ourselves. We will be going through and reply to any remaining notes. Please use the proper forums for your needs. If you have a concern or can’t find where you need to do something, please bring your issues to the Notes & Troubleshooting Forum.
  • We are currently looking for new admins. Please checkout The Admin Team page to see if you might be a good fit. Along with the departure of some of our admins, our team currently has a lot going on behind the scenes that requires us to bring on more people onto our team. We encourage anyone who might be interested in becoming an admin to reach out and give it a try.

The Suggestion Box will remain Anonymous to other users, but it is a requirement and courtesy to list your DeviantART screen name for the admin team. The Suggestion Box will be checked once weekly for the admin team to discuss.
  • There are lots of new changes around the website and maybe some hints at what might be next. We strongly suggest getting reacquainted with the new website and poking around to see what might be hiding! Who knows you might find something quite interesting……..
