The AC is now complete! The following canon characters are now back open to the public:
If you would like to app these characters, please go right ahead! If you would like to re-app these characters, you'll need to wait one week before being able to do so! This is to allow anyone else a shot at them first! This month I was pretty lax about the AC and sent warnings instead for all non-major characters. This is a new feature I'll be trying out to see if it helps with struggling activity, rather than just dumping the character with no word! If there's no real change, then it'll go back to normal. <3
A new survey has been sent out to all accounts! Please answer it at your leisure- it'll be open for a while as the new content isn't set to be added immediately! There's no obligation to answer at all, of course. Just have a look if you're interested! Some of the topics include: Hyperion Heights, New show canons, awards and discord!
Moving on- we've got a new event for the month! It's Valentine's Day and it looks like some people have gone through a lot of effort to set up a carnival right in the town! There are rides, shows, games, prizes, more food than you could possibly eat and, of course, a little bit of magic thrown into the mix! So if you're looking for a little bit of love-themed fun, head on over to the Valentine's event thread and have a look around at all the booths! Bring a friend! Bring two! Just have fun. The information for this thread can be found here: right here and plotting can be done right over here! If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the plotting thread or PM me directly!
Rumple hasn't been feeling well recently, as many know, but his condition is now a group plot! Want to help save the Dark One? Head on over to this thread and see if there's some way you might be able to contribute. We're looking for hearts!
There's still the Swanfire wedding! Looks like things are finally coming together, and now we have an event board for it! Check out the festivities here!
The Horned King has landed! A massive castle has appeared in the middle of the forest by Storybrooke! It is a dark, broken down keep that looks long forgotten, but don't be fooled- there is very much something very evil lurking within! A new forum has been created for the castle, which you can find right here. The boards are open for characters to go and explore as you see fit, just keep in mind it may be booby trapped or you may run into the undead! Speaking of- with the emergence of the castle, the legions of the Horned King no longer stalk the town, and have fallen back to the keep to protect it. The Horned King is readying to take over this realm, and brave heroes (or perhaps even villains who dislike someone getting in on their action) need to stop him!
You may have noticed there are now caps on some of the more popular jobs in town. This is too prevent flooding and ensure things remind realistic. Granny's Diner doesn't need forty waitresses, and there are other places that DO need them you could have your character go to instead! Other jobs also capped for the moment include: Cops at the police station, bar tenders at the Rabbit Hole and nurses at the hospital! Don't worry, I'm sure you can come up with other jobs that will be just as rewarding!
Due to the recent influx of super hero characters, Sector 2814 is currently barred from any new character creation! This includes ALL super heroes, not just those from DC or Marvel! When the tides ebb, the realm will be re-opened for new characters to fall into Storybrooke! ICly, characters may still stumble into the realm itself if so desired! Sorry for the inconvenience!
In generic, always here news: please make sure you head over to the claims board and get any claims you haven't submitted taken care of! This includes job claims, face claims, and the member directory! Also- if you don't have an icon on your account, please get one up! It helps keep the site looking nice and fancy. If you need help, please PM me and I'll get that up for you! We also have some optional claims: Pet, Housing and IC birthday!
If you're dying to have a certain character on board, make sure your Wanted Ads are up to date! I go through and add characters people are looking for to my resource site/tumblr ads, so it's good to keep up on them if there's someone you're super interested in seeing! With the activity check now over, it seems like a good time to update!
Lastly- Season 7 is upon us! Since it's basically AU and not remotely connected to the board, I don't really FEEL like spoilers should matter much, but I will still ask that people be respectful if someone tells them not to talk about it. <3
A NOTE ON PHOTOBUCKET -- So, Photobucket is charging extortionate amounts to direct link with them now, meaning it would be in your best interest to MOVE YOUR PHOTOS to a new host! And I would suggest doing so ASAP if you haven't already, as photobucket is now DELETING everything that is direct linked! My suggestions are Nickpic or PostImage.io. They're both very good sites for hosting images!

I totally forgot to say that we've also gotten ourselves listed on a couple of topsites for ad purposes. I don't know too much about them, but it won't hurt the site, right? So, whenever you get a chance, if you could click the two links in the affiliates section and vote for our site, that would be fantastic!
These are the buttons, for reference:
Thanks a bundle!
