I'm sorry to be off-topic, but I haven't really got another method; hey guys. Is anybody still around here anymore? I lurk every now and then, and of course I'm not around as much as before, it really looks like this place is going through a quiet spell... So, who's still around? How're you all doing, writing or otherwise? =/ I haven't been doing much GS related writing, which would be why I haven't uploaded anything for quite some time, but if I do have time, I do take a look at the fics still up and offer my input, so... Yeah. Kinda sad to see it this way when we had all those Tourneys and stuff before. SuicuneSol, you still around?

I'm glad you mentioned this, actualy I was wondering the same thing. I haven't been able to write more golden sun fanfiction, since I've been focuing on drawing and working on another story. Although I hope that with the release of Dark Dawn this section could be revived. We should have a new tournament sometime again soon~

Wind Feather - you're Wind Sorcerer, aren't you? And yeah, maybe we'll get some more traffic once the game comes out - but it'd be nice if some of the older members would return, too.
- fire_guardian_flame on September 15, 2010 02:50:39 am

Yep I am. And yeah, it'd be nice to see SuicuneSol or Cynic around again. D:

- Wind Feather on September 15, 2010 04:38:22 am
every now and again I pop on to see what's up. There really isn't much going on, is there?
- Nibirus Starshine on September 22, 2010 03:45:11 am
It really doesn't look like there is. Possibly a big part of the problem is the lack of admin/mod here who can kick things up with a news post or something. It's wonderful Cinder's done so much work with the appearance and so on, but without a community, this place is still sleeping. =/
- fire_guardian_flame on September 22, 2010 09:33:20 pm
Yeah, I'm around. The question is "Are you around?" :P I see not a soul posting here, so I'm not sure if someone is here to read any "news post". And besides, what kind of news could there be besides Dark Dawn news? :P

I'm also quite busy with school, though. I offered to write a Terms of Use for Cinder... but, wow I've never done that before and wouldn't know where to start unless I just write what I think a Terms of Use would be.
- SuicuneSol on September 23, 2010 07:51:37 am
I'm still kicking around. I haven't been writing much of anything for months though, let alone fanfiction. And while we may get more traffic when dark Dawn comes out, I may well have to avoid the site as I'm in PAL land, therefore who knows when the game will get released. We'll definitely get it later than most others on here anyway.
- Blazing Aura on September 23, 2010 08:38:37 am
Hehe, I always have this site open in a tab. So yes, I'm still around. Nice to see you, Suicune and Blazing. It's true, there isn't so much to talk about, we had those tourneys before to kick up activity, but... Hm.

A suggestion for Terms of Use - I don't think it needs to be crazy detailed, perhaps notes on no plagiarism and keeping an open mind for all creative work? No flaming, being courteous, the usual sort of etiquette stuff along with some points concerning the writing/treatment/posting of fanfiction?
- fire_guardian_flame on September 23, 2010 10:05:35 pm
I don't think anybody remembers me, but I'm here. ^___^
- FlamingMage on September 25, 2010 01:07:31 am
That sounds good, fire_guardian_flame. I'll work with that.
- SuicuneSol on September 25, 2010 06:51:41 am
I come in every now and then. Haven't had much to do with fanfic in the last year but I am finding alot more free time during the off season, so once DD comes out and I get myself a copy early enough I might be able to get some inspiration back.

Its great to see that some people are still around.
- W C Eagle on October 10, 2010 09:42:16 pm
I foresee a problem with DD coming out, but that's only if we get any more activity than what we've currently been having.

Said problem being - Spoilers. Everybody will be playing through the game at different rates. You can hardly ask them not to come here at all in case they'd like to look at some old fanfiction or something. On the other hand, if people come here before they've beaten the game, they may end up finding spoilers all over the place. I think probably the only solution without mod/admin intervention would be very clearly marked warnings in fics that would include DD spoilers. =/
- fire_guardian_flame on October 12, 2010 03:01:38 am
HEY GUYS.

So, DD is out now. Let's try to kick a little bit of energy into this place, neh? Although, I might avoid it myself in case of spoilers. I haven't quite gotten my hands on the game yet, but I will this weekend. How about you guys, any of you still around? >:
- fire_guardian_flame on December 01, 2010 03:25:26 am
I'm still kicking around here. The problem for me is that the game isn't released in Europe until the 10th December, and I won't get to play it until the 16th when I get home from uni, so I'm kinda avoiding every GS-related site I know for the time being. I need to get writing fullstop though, so writing more fanfics might be a good kick-start, though I might be best waiting to have played DD first.
- Blazing Aura on December 01, 2010 01:59:47 pm
Oh yeah, I definitely understand that. I may avoid this place as well, as I mentioned. Thing is, I hope we do get some of the previous people back here once enough time has passed for people to beat DD. I haven't been doing much writing lately; my NaNo died, so getting back into fanfiction might be a good way to get back on my feet.

Nice to see you're still around, though. ^_^
- fire_guardian_flame on December 01, 2010 11:05:24 pm
I wouldn't worry about spoilers on this site. It takes time to write fanfics, and I think most people will be too busy playing the game to write fanfiction.

Like me.
- SuicuneSol on December 03, 2010 09:54:15 pm
What now, Mudshippers? Huh? Huh? How does that canon feel! ^___^
- FlamingMage on December 04, 2010 05:13:21 am
What was that you were saying about not worrying about spoilers Sui?
- Blazing Aura on December 04, 2010 09:53:04 am
Knowing the GS fandom at large and the RIDICULOUS shippings we have come up with (such as Roofshipping), I highly doubt canon is going to dissuade people entirely from supporting "the shipping that should have been" or something.

And, what Blazing said ^
