As some of you may have noticed already, Jade's retired her staff account. As far as we are aware, this retirement is going to be for good. She's mentioned some of her reasons in Discord so we aren't going to speak for her but, simply, move forward with the purpose of this announcement.
First of all, we want to thank Jade for everything she has done for the site. Since the idea was concieved all the way up to today, she's driven the site forward to create the foundations of a now flourishing, intricate and always growing world that thrives under the loving care of all contributors, past and present. Under her guidance, the community has steadily grown throughout the years and she, together with the other founders, put together the start of a staff team to carry it all forward and ensure that the world never stops moving, never stops breathing, and never stops entertaining the many talented writers and content creators who have contributed to it. She's been an invaluable member of the staff team and playerbase for as long as she's been part of them, pulling all of us through countless hurdles and storms that brought us all closer together in the end and made us stronger---as a community. Her absence is going to leave a void that'll be difficult for anyone else to fill in the future.
However, we move forward.
Because Jade was the site owner, her departure is going to cause some necessary changes on the staff side. We're confident---absolutely---that we'll be able to pull ourselves together and reorganize and stabilize in order to continue operating as we have. Ownership is in the process of being transferred to Pegasus (who is already in possession of all necessary administrative details for access) so site closure is out of the question, and once the dust settles, the staff is going to internally discuss how to proceed from here. What that means for the site, right now, is nothing... simply this: We ask for your patience in the weeks to come as we will be working tirelessly to make any decisions that need to be made and stake out our intended path for the future of this site. Though our discussions may result in reorganization at the core, no matter what happens, we have every intention to minimize the impact on the playerbase and, no matter what, the ship will keep on sailing. We're not going anywhere, and it's our sincere hope that you'll stick with us through this.
If any of you have any questions, concerns, comments or suggestions---don't hesitate to come forward. There are multiple venues of communication at your disposal, whether it's the Discord
server, the Prophet Support
forum, the Discussion
forum, Bugs & Suggestions
, Questions & Answers
, and of course... the PM inboxes
of the staff. Reach out or post to this thread if you so prefer. We understand that this may unsettle or come as a surprise to some, so we are more than willing to communicate as openly as is desired in order to assuage any fears or worries.
Thank you to everyone who makes this site the amazing place that it has grown to become! We're all in this together, and we're not going anywhere.
the Staff Team
