!PLEASE NOTE!

As of August 31st we will be removing all posting access from the community sites (TEAMX and the OOC Comm) and officially closing Team X.

We will not be deleting the site in the immediate future for the moment. This is so that if you still want to grab threads and such like you can do so but the community will no longer be active.

Thank you.
 
 
There is no easy way to break the news to you all, but I'm fairly sure that from the lack of activity and knowing that you are all bright bunnies, that you've probably started putting two and two together.

It is, with great sadness, that I must inform you that Team X (and all associated comms) will be closing.

It has not been an easy decision to make for us as Mods and one that we have spent a lot of time discussing. The reality is that for the three of us our RL has begun to demand more and more of our attention and we felt that we were beginning to neglect the comm. That doesn't mean we don't love this place with our hearts and souls, Team X has been in my life for two years+ and brought me some amazing people. I'm not a religious person but I can say, hand on heart, that I am blessed to have been introduced to people, thanks to this community, that have made a huge impact on my life. Especially in times of difficulty and stress. However my career as a teacher is starting in September and although it is my aim, like the other Mods, to try and still RP as much as possible, I just can't dedicate the time and effort into running the community.

Please don't read this as an excuse, I am merely trying to express how hard this decision was to make for all of us.

What I will say is that I know I certainly have loved being both a player and a Mod, I've developed new skills and improved on old ones (I hope) whilst trying to be as fair as possible. My muses have come on leaps and bounds since my first posts here and I know that there will always be a special place in my heart for Team X.

We will be bringing the current plot to a conclusion with a prose post (with the option to tag in if you have time or the inclination) and then we ask you to please, write us a summative statement of what you think happened to your muses after the team were disbanded. Shade made this suggestion and explained that it was rather like the movies where you got to see Bradley living on a circus and leading a life away from is old one. What we would love to see is where your muses went and what happened next!

I don't know what more there is to say, other than I will be keeping my muses alive and kicking around LJ so feel free to poke and prod me from time to time.

Thank you, for being a part of this community.

Apologies for inactivity appear to be going up and sadly, I'm going to be doing this one and likely enough, it's set to continue.

For those of you who know me outside of the community, you'll likely know that I have certain 'issues'. For those of you who don't, I'll just lay it out. I'm severely anti-social, on occasions I regress back into this. Right now I'm in a major sort of funk where I'm lucky if I even speak to a single person in a day, unless I'm working, and even then, I'm a total boor.

I understand that this throws a spanner in the works for a lot of issues and that, as the Mods have recently been sorely busy and extremely quiet, activity in the community is suffering. I'm sorry for this, but until I get this sorted out and figure out where it's stemming from, it's highly unlikely that I'll be able to do anything remotely fun, imaginative or entertaining.

I'm sorry for the disturbance it causes, but there really is nothing I can do about it until I get my head on straight.

MIA  
Hey guys! Sorry for being MIA lately. It wasn't something I really saw coming so I didn't even put up a hiatus notice. I honestly thought I'd shake out of it. I mean I never stay away from RP for long but looking at some of the notifs just sitting in my inbox I realized it's been like a month for some of my tags. That's totally inexcusable and I'm sorry. I think maybe I just got bit with the summer bug or something.

I won't lie. In a way, I'm happy that I got away from gaming for a while. Sometimes I worry that the only life I'm leading are the lives I create online. That's a sad thought folks. I mean I love my pups and I love gaming with all of you but when all I do is work, game, sleep, and repeat I think it depresses me after a while and I just want to break free and be a real person in the real world for a while.

You'll be happy to know that I got a bit of that summer bug out of my system now. I mean I'm still going to balance a real life in with my gaming and I still have to work but I think now that I've recharged my batteries a bit I can play a little catch up.

Again, I am so sorry for the people I've left hanging. I'm going to do a few tags now (though I have been drinking so I can't guarantee the quality of these tags) and I have tomorrow off so I'll do the rest then.

Hi y'all!

This is just to say that we haven't all dropped off of the face of the earth, your MODS (like a fair number of you too from the hiatus numbers) are leading busy lives out in the real world. That doesn't mean we aren't still here and keeping an eye on the community, it just means we've all been trying to juggle work and freetime.

I know we have, sadly, lost a player as Kayla has had to bow out due to other commitments. I shall say now on behalf of all of us MODS that it's been a pleasure to have her and the muses in the community and both Roy and Scott shall be sorely missed.

I know we have a couple of people on hiatus currently, but AC checks last month were rather... lacking. I'm not pointing the finger here, I too failed that for one of my muses, Ethan missed his check by one tag but some people on here haven't tagged at all. I know we all lead busy and often hectic lives but we've tried to make it as easy as possible to pass the AC now with you only needing 3 tags with your name either as a post or as a comment. Posts can be either full dialogue posts on here OR a sws/ssws post.

Anyway! If you just want to drop me a comment to say hi, suggest any plot ideas or feel like discussing the weather you are more than welcome to do so!

Charlie xx

...I've decided to announce that I'm taking a temporary hiatus from the game.

Jubilee is silent on me, and Haylie's just refusing to cooperate for tags right now. I've been under a lot of stress in my personal life, on top of 35-40 hour weeks at work and even though my hours just got slashed in half again, I'm barely hanging on right now.

I need to take a step back from some things; get myself back into the recovery program I was in through my church, get back into my Bible, and take some time to take care of myself. I really didn't wanna do this, but I can't keep feeling guilty over not tagging back in a timely manner and, in Jubilee's case, not doing anything.

I'm not sure how long I'll be out, but hopefully it'll only be a week or two.

-Bri

Hey folks,

Real life sucks, doesn't it? This is me again announcing a hiatus. I've been busy with work and not having a computer at home (they blocked every fun website at work too, those bastards) didn't help matters much. And now I'll be in hospital for a while. I have no idea for how long, but I'll be having surgery and they want me to rest and all that stuff I really, really don't like. So, nothing to worry about, but I won't be showing up here or on AIM for a while.

And as soon as they discharge me I'll quit my job because I do happen to think that RPing is way more important than shoving around pixels all day.

So I was hoping I could just bump into a mod on AIM so I could be cool and nonchalantly ask about Betsy but it's been a few days and I guess schedules conflict because I don't ever seem to be online at the same time as anyone.

I would like to do something with Betsy though. I mean I know she's gone for the duration of Operation: WorldWipe but since she's not effected by reality altering powers she would still think she's on the team. It's not like the others that just aren't with the team in this reality. I'd like to write a mission fic or something but unless you just want me to make something up I'd need a little info. So if one of you could get back to me that would be super.

for the purpose of WorldWipe, you have two new team members. Sort of.

Bailey and Daman Crow.

Bailey and Daman are twins, she is the more strong willed, although he is the more powerful. When WorldWipe comes into effect, each character will feel like they have always known Bailey and Daman as members of the team. Additionally, you will all still have relationships with each other.

Daman's power is to warp perceptions/reality. He can make you think something that isn't actually true for a certain amount of time. The longer he's around, the longer it lasts. So, rather than having everyone on edge and cautious and feeling like they are in a new place, everyone will feel like they have been a member of the team for a good while and thus will have developed friendships and the like with people already.

This gives you the opportunity to be friends with people you wouldn't have been friends with. Different histories and personalities affecting the relationships made. So, plot with each other on how you'd act in base, what you'd feel is best of relationships and the like.

Also, here, you can request any kind of relationship with one of the twins. Please read their profile's first, as Bailey isn't about to have a BFF and Daman is unlikely to have a bitter enemy Bailey would've killed them. no lie.

Any questions, as always, ask.
