hey everyone! i'd like to start off saying that i am glad you all joined so close to the opening day! it is very exciting for me to see this site growing! that said, you guys really need to keep up the activity. i understand you can't be online all the time, but a bunch of you haven't been on since you joined and that is just horrible. get online! get plots going!<br><br>
for the first few months of the site's life, i will be willing to send email reminders if that is necessary to keep this site active. if you know you are not going to be on for a while, let me know! i don't care if you have real life stuff, if you don't tell me you are going to be gone i'll get real pissed! and you don't want to see a pissed laska!<br><br>
along with posting, logging on and plotting, there is the cbox. it isn't required, but if you are doing nothing and just staring blankly at the homepage, then chat it up in the cbox! that is why it's there! don't be shy, say hi! (ha, i rhymed). get to know the other members, and don't be afraid to post in the "introduce yourself!" thread in the chat board, it's there for you to learn about each other.<br><br>
that brings up yet another point, the chat board! like i said, it's there for you to talk and post! if you aren't doing anything, waiting for someone to reply to a thread or get online, go post there whether it be a game or talking about various real life things. it's there for your enjoyment.<br><br>
i guess what i am really trying to say in all of this is that you can't just ditch the site right after joining, or ever! get to know each other, get some plots going, talk to each other off the site if you want. there shouldn't be any reason for you not to be on for weeks at a time, or leave people hanging. let's get active guys!

[DOHTML]<br><br><div style="color:#000000; text-align:center; letter-spacing:-3px; font-family: times; font-size:35px;">thank you for being active.
<div style="width:295; font-family:arial; border-bottom: 2px dotted #808080; font-size:9px; color:3d3735; text-transform:lowercase; padding-top:3px; padding-bottom:5px; text-align:justify; line-height:10px; ">now just because there are a few members that i am not happy with for not being online doesn't mean i am angry at you all. believe me when i say i love all of you members. i encourage those of you who do come online and post to keep doing it, and try to get the less active members involved.<br><br>
thank you for being active, those of you who are. I am not angry at any of you, I just wish some of you would be more active. i apologize if i previously sounded angry or mean.</div>
