Blood Rites Is Closing
« on: Apr 05, 21, 10:43:18 AM »
It is not an announcement we make easily or lightly but after many months of monitoring thread activity, checking in on personal situations, and the overall creative unavailability of members, the HBC has made the difficult decision to close down Blood Rites.

We understand that this may come as a shock to many but also may come as a quiet relief to some, one less stress to handle during this stressful time. Eleven years is a solid time for a creative community like this to flourish and, while we know that all good things must eventually end, we also are very much aware that we've had an amazing time here.

What this means for the boards and the community:

Effective today, HBC will no longer be performing the usual administrative tasks for the boards, such as review/approving new characters, processing points transactions, or moderating the board. The site will remain active for one year, during which time writers will be able to continue writing as they wish, and/or save old beloved threads and character profiles to personal files. After that year, the board will be moved offline.

The Discord server will remain available for as long as we see a reason to keep it up. We know that many members are still using it to coordinate other activities and we don't want to deprive others of that connection.

We want to thank everyone, here and gone, for their contributions over the years. Blood Rites has flourished because of welcoming, eager, and astoundingly creative members like all of you and we are so grateful to have been a part of that vibrant community for so long.

If you have any questions about this announcement, please feel free to ping a member of the HBC through various channels.

We wish everyone the best of luck in all of their future endeavors. May the Darkness keep you.

Jamie, phinn, and halyonix

I haven’t been here since the beginning, but I wanted to thank everyone for some amazing years of storytelling. It’s been a bedrock of my life for a long time and won’t be easily replaced. I made a lot of good friends through this place and I’ll miss it greatly. Good luck to you all in wherever you go from here.

This is sad, but even lovely things do end. I'm glad this site has been around for the time it has.
