MOD ANNOUNCEMENT
singularitymods wrote in singularityooc
In light of overwhelming player support, and to no small amount of relief on the part of the mods:

Singularity is moving to Dreamwidth.


We are working on a timeline to make the move as smooth as possible, with the goal of being up and running on DW around mid-January. That will be posted in the next day or so. For now, there are two important details:

1. Dreamwidth accounts. Free account creation on DW closes at the end of the year, so you have two days to make your accounts before you'll need an invite code. Invite codes shouldn't be a problem--many players have already made accounts and so have codes to give out, and the DW staff has been generous with RPs in the past, but doing it now presents the fewest hassles. Create an account here.

2. Changes to the reserve/apps schedule. To accommodate the move, we are extending the December reserve round through the first week of January. The January app round will run through the middle two weeks of the month, and the January reserve round will be a short one, running for the last week of the month.

The new schedule is:

January 8th: Reserves close/apps open.

January 22nd: Apps close/reserves open.

February 1st: Reserves close/apps open.

We will be back on the normal schedule for February. We know we're making people wait an extra week, and we apologize, but there's no way we can deal with the move and processing applications at the same time. The reserves and apps pages will be edited to reflect this.

On a personal note, we want to thank our players for bearing with us through LJ's changes while we examined our options, and we hope we've made as many people happy as possible. We know there are some who would prefer not to move, and if there's any way we can make the transition easier for you, please let us know. If you decide to leave the game rather than change services, you will be missed, but we understand that this move isn't the best choice for everyone, and we wish you luck in your future games.

Thank you all, and stay tuned for details.

Thank you for all of your hard work in this regard, mods. You've been absolutely amazing.

Just curious, will you continue to stay here long enough to help people get across? I may be worried for no reason, but another RP's userbase didn't end up being big enough and they've apparently died. So am I freaking out for no reason...?

Not quite sure what you're asking? We (meaning both the mods and the game in general) are not going to leave LJ entirely until everything's in order at DW. Our current plan is to taper off LJ and ramp up on DW.

I appreciate the patience and thought that went into all of this, as well as the consultation. I am also all for taking this slowly and making sure everything goes smoothly.

OH HAPPY DAY

Also thank you so much. You have been lovely, lovely mods throughout this whole thing.

Just came by to say....your icon scares the living shit out of me.

I have a question! o/

If we'd like to reserve do we put up the reserves on the LJ page?

Also I'm stoked for the move and I appreciate all the hard work you guys have been doing! <3

Just go ahead and hit up the LJ reserves page for now. If that changes, it'll be clearly marked.

...wait, crap, this is the account with all the hostile icons.

HURRAH!

Seriously, mods, I am in awe of how well you've handled this. <3 You guys are the rockinest.

KEEP ON KEEPING ON, OKIEDOKEY?

CELEBRATORY DANCE PARTY, NOW

Shepards aren't invited

WHAT? You're just jelly of our sweet moves.

Also +1 To YAY DREAMWIDTH.

Will it matter if we have a different DW username for a character? No big deal if the mods would prefer the same one but just want to check.

This.
I managed to snag the same one for Kan but I know a few people had to change?
