8.29.19 - 10.13.19

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.

Hello Omne! Our long awaited theme is here! Please report any issues you find to me as soon as possible. In the mean time, the work on the new guidebook will continue to progress. You will also find some new mutations have been released and I've again updated the way mutations are organized. From here on, our previous theme will no longer be supported. We'll be using Daydream, our new theme, exclusively.

You will also find that our discord is now linked with a new bot and is in the bottom right corner of the screen.

Voting has also began for seasonal endorsements, so please get your votes in! Here.

We're proud to announce that Rodentia (Rats, Mice, and other similar creatures.) are now available to play. You can find their details on the character creation guide! They are ready to create at any time. The other species will be released as they are finished, so keep an eye out for them! Today is the last day to vote for seasonal endorsements, so please get your votes in. If you notice any funny business about Rodentia, please let staff know.

Hello Omnians! We have several announcements to make today so I've numbered them for ease of reading.

1. An announcement regarding very important changes to the site can be found here. Please review it!

2. An activity check is underway! Please check and see if any of your characters are up for inactivity by reading here.

3. From now on, users will roll their own scavenges! In the site's discord, you will find a new category called "rolls" and inside it an area for scavenge rolls. Instructions have been included for your benefit. If you have any questions, please DM or PM a staffer. You will also find that you can post to IC threads with your OC now, though it should only be used for scavenges.

4. The practice arena has been removed due to the changes mentioned in #1.

5. A new forum called "Guides" has been created for users to create guides to benefit their fellow members. The guides are user-created and user-maintained. It can be found in the Out of Character section.

6. Please congradulate our seasonal endorsements! Each has been awarded their accustomary 100 gems to their accounts. (Relationship and Character was awarded to that character's account.)

Spring is here, as well as our new time system, which will be explained more in depth by Split's next news post. Until then, I am able to give you an idea on the basic structure of our seasons. With each new year, the seasons' dates will be announced! For Year 3, the seasons are as follows:

Spring: 8.29.19 - 10.13.19
Summer: 10.14.19 - 11.28.19
Fall: 11.29.19 - 1.13.20
Winter: 1.14.20 - 2.28.20

Be sure to age up your characters by 0.25! Happy posting!
