Tough times don't last for long

I regret to say it's time for a fresh idle-purge. These characters have been idle for more than a year. Any who do not connect, or whom we do not hear a request to preserve, by the 22nd of June will be purged. This includes their belongings and rooms. (If they own a room on the main grid, the room will be returned to its natural state of mutating chaos.)

If you see an alt of yours on the list and wish to keep them, please connect. If you can't remember the password any wizard can help you with a reset. If you do not wish to preserve the character, don't bother doing anything. The character will be purged on its own.

If you know anyone on the list and can contact them, please do to let them know they are missed. If you are aware of special reasons why they might not be able to connect, but would likely want to, please pass word on to me, Austin, and we will make a note to keep them around a bit longer.

Thanks everyone for your time and attention. And, to those on the list, thank you for having been a part of our stories.

This is a bit urgent...

I know I haven't posted here in forever.  I haven't had a lot to say.  Today I do.  This is pretty important, on a personal level:

I have been supporting my mother and her expenses for three years.. rent, utilities, the whole thing.. all atop my own.  The money I was using for this - my late father's IRA - has run dry as of this summer.  I am now being compelled to take a second job just to keep myself above water.  I'm not sure how long I'll be able to sustain this situation ... a few months at most before my body likely rebels and breaks.  I'm not in my twenties anymore, after all.

I strongly doubt I'll get any response from this, I know few -can- help, and even fewer -will-.  But... I'm putting this out here:

If I can get help for Mother's bills, in some way, from the community, or anyone that can help, she and I will be eternally grateful.

She will be willing to make something for anyone that does help.  The bigger, the better.  She does have a lot of craft skills she can pull upon.

If you can't help, or don't feel like it, I will understand.   (Though two hundred posts of "no, can't/won't help", won't be that useful)
If you -can- help, contact me here, or off-list:

Contact infoCollapse )

I am hoping that I won't end up having to move in with her, quintupling my commute time, and not really saving much money either.

Sorry to worry you all.
