Apologies for the lack of contact over the last few weeks, but we've been considering current circumstances for a while now, and it's time that we address them. To be completely honest, both mods are just burned out, from RL issues, other interests/hobbies, and just the way running the game has been over the last few months. In all fairness, everyone's been busy over the holidays and we understand that completely. But our enthusiasm for the setting and player management has waned. We aren't at all short on ideas or plot -- we've had everything planned since the beginning -- but we are having trouble feeling motivated to keep going. What the solution for this may be is unclear, though the last thing we want to do is close the game. But before we can move forward with plot threads, we really feel that we need to do some reorganization.
That being said, this post is two parts: one is a general activity check, and the other is a gauge of interest in one member becoming part of the moderation team. First, we'd like for all players who are still interested in actively writing for this game to comment to this entry. If you are no longer interested or are unable to play, please state that as well -- we need to know who we can count on if we are to continue, and please know that we don't begrudge anyone at all if they do decide to leave. We just want to be able to work out any departures ICly ahead of time.
Secondly, what we really need is someone who is willing to do more on the managerial side of things -- contacting inactive players, keeping tabs on hiatuses, updating plot threads to keep everyone informed of changes, etc. These are tasks that we have struggled with the most and really just haven't had time to address. Again, we have game plot settled already, though obviously, we'd be open to working on these ideas collaboratively with a third person. It is preferred that any potential applicants for this role be active, be good at diplomacy and social organization, and able to use GDocs, as that's where all of our plotting takes place. This is a really big responsibility and would be a great help to us, so please be serious about your commitment to the game.
