when fools was created, the staff came to a conclusion: we would not let fools die. no matter how busy our members might be or if there’s a new ~*~fad~*~ of the roleplaying world, we would keep fools a fun community for the old and the new. even if there was only one active member left, we would keep the site open indefinitely for them and even beyond, as all of the admins still have an interest in roleplaying on fools.
that being said, this isn’t anything near a goodbye.
a large part of the reason why fools was made was because we were sick and tired of jumping from one site to another- we wanted a stable place that we could log into at the end of the day and just roleplay. and as staff, we’re proud to say that we have accomplished just that - in the past month and a half, we have witnessed the most amazing group of people interact with each other and do what they loved to do: roleplay. as cheesy as this message might be, we have never been more proud of a site.
sadly, as real life becomes more hectic (as a majority of our staff are still in school), it becomes harder to put in the amount of energy that we want to. advertising becomes a struggle and our goal has never been to compete with said fads- we just wanted to build a site that’s here to stay and we have done just that. in retrospect, that’s all we could ever ask for. we understand if people occasionally lose muse and interest from time to time- that has never deterred us from continuing forward. still, we wanted to create a comfortable environment where people could just roleplay and have fun. we wanted people to make characters that they do, be invested in their plots, and just have an all around good time.
we never really planned for the things that made fools special (the cards against humanity tournaments, the cbox conversations, the friendships, etc etc) so it’s not even a question of shutting down the site for good. as staff, we promised you a place to roleplay and we plan on keeping fools just that.
as of right now, we’re making fools a private roleplay for all existing members. so many of our wonderful friends, and all of the staff, have expressed an interest in continuing their plots and we want to provide them with just that. anyone currently on fools has the option of making new characters, threading with old ones, etc etc.
and when the time comes, we will be reopening fools for the public. the exact date of the reopening is yet to be decided but you can definitely expect to see fools again. and like we said- this isn’t anywhere near a goodbye. this is simply a “see you later!”
