The state of the Isle hasn't changed in a long time. The odd post here and there.. I don't even know how long it's been. Out of habit, it's still on my internet rounds, so I actually check it a few times every day... There just seems so little to say these days.
I'm grateful that the Isle gave me the opportunity to meet such wonderful people that I never would have met otherwise.. Back then, I wouldn't have thought someone I simply spoke to online could mean so much to me, even to become one of the most important people to me.
Besides that, I loved the wonderful characters that everyone had, and the RPs we did (I think the silliest ones were my favourite). Though looking back at them - especially the early ones - kill me. xD
Though I didn't play much part in that myself, it was also nice to see the creative sides of people, whether it be through reading their stories or looking at their artwork, and feeling happy for them when you could tell how much they improved, even small amounts. And for the short while it lasted, the art contest was fun, too. It even got me joining in! (hah..)
For the not so good.. there were some turbulent times, sure. Lots of arguments about I don't even remember what. But the Isle got past those and settled again and all was well.
And although it's sad to see this place fall into a lack of management, I'm glad to see that the admin is doing so well for himself, and for all I've said and more I truly am grateful to him for this place.
I don't know if you wanted an essay, but it seems that's what you got xD
Edit: Oh! And a little personal thing... getting all the high scores in the 3x3 cave puzzle slidey thing, until.. oh goodness I'll have to check, Anime Gal?.. snuck in there and got one I just couldn't beat out.
2nd edit: Yep, Anime_gal95. I remember having fun talking to her about that.. or complaining I couldn't push her score down xD
The Isle's a bit dead, sure, but I still love it. Like Glic, I usually check it daily too. I loved all the RPs and the discussions, and wish that it'd be more active seeing as I'd love to plan more projects with the people here. Alas.
There's not all that much to say or it'll sound like a funeral, to be honest. :u
It's not like we're dead, the Isle's just less active. We can still do other stuff and contact eachother in different ways.
What I want to know is how this site managed to survive. I mean, obviously there must be some sort of maintenance or fees that apply. Has Admin not got an e-mail saying "You should visit your site"? Most sites need renewal or something!
He's continuing to pay for the site because he knows we still come here and it's not really all that much. But he has long since admitted he doesn't have the time to maintain this place.. which is fair enough. It's not like he's just forgotton about us.
Guys, complaining about it won't help. Just be glad the Isle's still online. Besides, we don't have to do nothing. We can make little sites or a forum of our own. There's nothing stopping us. We can even spend some time on other sites as the group we are. Just sayin'
