Quarterly Activity Check + The Future
May 26, 2016
Hello Community!

It's that time of the year again as we prepare for Summer, bringing with it all sorts of fun and things - but also a potential period of "lag" for the site. DO NOT FRET! It's commonplace that some sites, especially fandom ones (at least, in my experience) to slow down during the Summer.

People are graduating, looking for colleges, getting new jobs and working said jobs - it's a hectic time for everyone! That said, RLR has and will continue to pull through and come back stronger than ever - and that's assuming we even slow down!

As some of you know, we're in the midst of planning a cross-site tournament with Syne Academy, another RWBY forum of comparable size to RLR. We figured this would be a great way to bring the fandom together, as well as have a little bit of fun on the way. You can read more about this tournament, as well as visit and sign up on the Proboards site dedicated to the tournament! Remember, the tournament is students only! Matches are expected to begin June 1st, so get in there quick and post in our sign-up thread so we can get the matchups started!

For responding to the Activity Check, please use the following template and post here. If you don't respond within a week, your character will be put in a state of "limbo" until you can respond. This is to safeguard those of you that are tied up with graduation, college visits, and life in general from losing all your hard work. After a month of inactivity, however, unclaimed characters will be archived and they will lose whatever titles (such as faculty position) they hold.

In other news, I believe that we on the Staff team owe the entire community an apology. We very well could be doing our jobs better, and while everyone has their reasons for somewhat slacking as of late, they do little to excuse the fact. That said, we will be making some changes to ensure that apps are reviewed in a timely manner, plots are moving accordingly, disputes are resolved appropriately, and more with the intent of making RLR a community for everyone and keep it that way.

Until Ala is able to make a full return to the site, I will be acting as interim head admin and working to implement many of the changes the staff team has discussed in the depths of the Staff Chat. I look forward to working with everyone to ensure Red Like Roses is the absolute best it can be.

To college/high school grads: Congratulations and good luck!

To those finishing for Summer break: Also congratulations. You've still got a bit of a journey ahead, but if life has taught me anything it's that if you can make it through one, you'll make it through the rest.

To everyone else that has a million and one things going on, keep on going! Sometimes the path ahead can seem a little rough, but with some perseverance, you will pull through! The rewards at the end of that tunnel, boy oh boy!

See you guys in the cbox!
