It's time for an update to how we handle time! Now that we are a couple days into the first season of this year, I'll explain how our flow of time will now work. We will be keeping double time, but our time will be more fluid. Essentially, from here on, you will be allowed to back date threads.

All threads from here on out will need to have a date AND time listed in the thread title. This will allow users to see exactly when a thread occurred.

Previously, if you posted a new thread, the time and date that thread was posted was the time in which that event was happening. We are altering the rules regarding timelines to allow you to backdate threads for any date in the current year. (This is Year 3.) So this year started on 8.29.19. You may date a thread from the current date backward to the first day of the year. So as today is 8/31/19, you may date a thread for any date between 8/29/19 and 8.31.19. You may not date threads forward.

So as the year progresses, you will be able to date threads for any time that has already passed in the year, but you must be careful not to break your own character's timelines. The best way to track a character's timeline is to go to their profile and click the button on it labelled "Thread Log". It shows every thread the character has ever participated in. Likewise, events that would break your timelines should also be carefully monitored. So, for example, if I posted a thread for a character dated for today in the desert, it would break the timeline if I posted a thread dated for the 29th in which they ended up dying.

Excessively breaking your own timelines or other characters' timelines is frowned upon and if done consistently, Staff may intervene. Tomorrow I will be instituting changes to leader logs and pregnancies that reflect these changes, so keep an eye out! Please DM or PM a staffer if you have any questions.

OOC News Updates Y1



All the OC news updates from 3.8.19 - 8.28.19 are kept here for ease of review.


6.24.19 Discord is currently down as of 0725 site time. If, in the meantime, you need a staffer, please PM them on site. Thank you.

6.16.19 Congratulations to our OTS winners! Gems have been added! We have also updated our art rules and a few discord rules and a new poll is being hosted here about future species ideas!

6.4.19 Say hello to Fall! We have changed seasons again and it is time to age your characters forward! I am also proud to announce that I have finished renovating the character creation guide, the rules, and the introduction page. They are merely the first three parts of our guidebook to get a quality of life update to reflect Omne's ever-evolving world and it will soon be followed by the rest of the guidebook. You will also notice that there has been a minor adjustment to how speed is calculated and Serpents have been given more length, as we realized they were quite small. You will also find that for the time being, Raccoon Dogs have been removed from our Lesser Canine list due to a sizing issue, but they may make a reappearance later!

We are also proud to announce that Jeiazu has won the banner contest with her banner Taking Flight! Her gems will be awarded shortly and we will begin the work of recoloring a theme to use her banner soon. Voting for seasonal endorsements has also commenced, which can be found here.

Discussion regarding the new species we would like to bring to Omne has also begun, which can be found
here.

5.26.19 Our banner contest has officially moved into stage two, meaning members get to vote on which banner will be featured as Omne's homepage banner and will see a color scheme designed based off it! (Here.) We are also taking nominations for seasonal endorsements again as we move closer to Fall of Y2. (Here.) We are also taking suggestions on new species including "tiny" creatures not usually permitted before! Please see here.

We would also like to welcome KittyKookiez and Wynter to the team as mods. The voting has ended regarding making our "paid" mutations free and we will soon transition all paid mutations (that are 25 gems or less) out of the shop and onto the character creation page. Regarding our guidebook, I am currently working on transitioning us to a new style of guidebook that is more user-friendly and rewriting them to include recent changes to spars, free to play species, and more. I will make an announcement when we have officially completed changes regarding mutations, species, and the guidebook.

There have also been reports regarding difficulties registering for some users with new accounts. If you discover this phenomenon, please DM or PM Split regarding the nature of the issue with as much information as you can provide. Thank you!

5.3.19 Congratulations to our Seasonal Endorsement winners! Your award will be distributed shortly. Today is the last day for the banner contest, with banners selected by staff moving on to the next stage tomorrow. Prizes for participation will be awarded as soon as the poll is posted. In other news, we are looking for new staffers and promoting Tae and Nibi to Senior Moderators, meaning they will be moving up in rank and taking on new responsibilities. Please see here for more information. The poll regarding changes to spars has ended with overwhelming favor for doing away with most judgments. For spars that are currently in need of judgment from a staffer (any spar before today), please DM or PM Split if you would still like for them to be judged, if not, it will be assumed you will be working the results out amongst yourselves! We will be implementing both the changes voted on in the last poll regarding small characters, spars, and other stuff.

We are also in the process of revamping the guidebook and update threads, so you may notice some oddness as this project progresses. Please report all bugs to Split either via Discord or site PM, thanks! Thank you for your continued support of Omne!

4.28.19 We have officially moved into our new theme! From now on, Run and Hide will not be supported by the site. We are still working out the kinks, but we wanted to get everything moved in as soon as possible. We are still working out the kinks and getting everything in order, but the theme is definitely usable as is. You will notice things changing and shifting around as we keep working, however.

4.1.19 We have made an announcement regarding some pretty significant changes to the site here and you are highly encouraged to read them! They include our URL changing, our new host, a new theme, a new plugin, changes to how we handle profiles, and a hard activity check for active characters! 

3.22.19 Please give a whopping congratulations to our newest seasonal endorsements! We also have began a new posting and advertising contest, both of which have some pretty incredible rewards available for not only the winners, but also second and third place! You can find our posting contest here and our advertising contest here. Staff has also began work on the next chapter of our sitewide plot, so get ready for a lot of interesting IC and OC events coming up!
