Hello everyone, Kaoru here! :D
After realizing how backed up the messages were, I noticed a recurring question. What's going on with Silverblood? Are we still active? I mean, that old journal was from FOUR YEARS AGO!! W O W! That's a long time! What's been going on during all those years?
I'm here to update you all on what's going on and hopefully answer some questions!
Silverblood, as it stands, is pretty inactive. Some are reluctant to start new roleplays, or create new characters. Why is this? It's been rumored by a few members that Silverblood may very well be in the process of being rebooted a second time. Nobody knows if these rumors are true or not, but if they are, many don't want to start new roleplays just to move over to somewhere new. As for creating new characters, it's been suggested that if there is a reboot, that it happens a couple generations in the future, so cats that we'd create on the current site would no longer be alive-- either that, or they would be stuck in the elders den.
Despite its inactivity, there are still members, like myself, who frequent the site. There are many AU's going currently, moreso about the actual members of the site rather than the cats in roleplay, but that could always change! There are also stories being written. There is still stuff happening on the site, just not very much roleplaying. However, that doesn't mean you can't start roleplaying on there! Most members that still frequent the site are more than willing to roleplay with you still. Just be aware of the possibility of having to stop mid-plot if a reboot happens!
For those who are new to the site, if you do a bit of scrolling (or press your handy dandy "End" key to get to the end of the page), there is a chat box at the end of the homepage. Feel free to pop in and chat with me and others!
As for what's happened over the course of four years. Gosh, who's to say? I can't believe its been that long, and I don't remember what happened during each year. I'll try my best!
We've gone through quite a few admin changes. We started with one solitary leader and three co-admins beneath them. However, life was rough and the admin was often gone during this time. The site really slowed during this time, as no one knew what they were allowed to do in the admin's absense. I was one of these co-admins!
Eventually we all decided we needed to change administration. From one admin to a triad, we now have 3 head admins. I am no longer one of those admins, yet I still have control over this group, haha. The triad of admins got a bit done, but again, life got in the way, and many of them left for long periods of time. So, the regular members decided to just RP as they saw fit and avoided any major plots as we didn't know which plot was being used at the time.
There was lots of waves of activity and inactivity. Many members have left or have gone missing, but there are still some stragglers left behind, and some that like to peek in from time to time. Roleplay wise, amazingly, I don't think much has changed. Waterclan has become a giant kitten fest, and had an accidental catnip catastrophe. They ended up going to the gathering on catnip! That was quite the experience.
In Runeclan, Ar'Atal has resigned, presumably due to sickness. His deputy, too, had resigned. In his stead he crowned Kirei the new leader of Runeclan, which shocked the entire clan. Small, timid, and shy Kirei, the new leader? Now Ar'Kirei, she has chosen Finbar as her new Deputy, giving him the title of De'Finbar. However, there is a grand lie within Runeclan's rankings. Ar'Kirei is a farce. Starclan had refused her her 9 lives, and in fear of betrayal of her clan, she drew the markings on her leg herself. She lives under the guise of Leader, even though Starclan themselves denied her position.
In Fireclan, dear medcat Thunderstreak died. She fell victim to Leopardkill, one of many evil rogues who ravaged the clans. Fireclan also gained a new tradition when burying their dead after Bones of the Grave joined their ranks. Will this tradition carry on? Who knows.
Hellclan has had its paws full with rampant rogues and loners. Unfortunately, they all seem to end up in Hellclan territory. After being ravaged by Adder and co., Hellclan has been rekindling, and has been anything but kind towards these rogues.
As for Shadeclan, I feel that there haven't been many big news updates from Shade. However, I was only really active in Waterclan, and occassionally Rune. 9v6a;;;; Sorry Shadeclan!
There has been WAY too much over the years to summarize everything for you, so I wrote what I could remember. Some may have happened longer ago than 4 years, but I am horrible at keeping track of time.
I don't want to make this TOO long, so I guess that's all I have for now! Please, if you're curious, feel free to pop into the site if you haven't already. Come chat with me and the others!
Kaoru, out! ヾ（*⌒ヮ⌒*）ゞ
