mod post

hi guys!

I come with both good news and bad, firstly i've decided to put [community profile] theaviary on a little hiatus. Things are pretty busy with me & this comm is a lot of work. This will be for the month of April, but i'm not 100% sure things will be the same when i come back.

I know its always rough when a mod packs it in, but i do hope to ressurect this comm as ~something in the future. I think mostly the team comms are pretty quiet and it might be better to do things a little differently.

HOWEVER i don't want you to be bored, so i'm matching this up with a NEW comm that has opened, that is a little more organised and refined than this one - but with the same concept this comm is based on. I'm going to be hopefully harrassing the lovely [personal profile] digitaldesigner to take some of the open challenges too :D

DW: info | sign ups
LJ: info | sign ups

So please please please consider joining there, and checking that out while we take a short break over April. Results WILL be up for the month of march and there might be 1 or 2 more challenges. You're also welcome to continue to do challenges if you want - just be aware your points might be a little meaningless :D

ARGH this post is tl;dr now, so feel free to ask questions in the comments/tell me how you feel.

I... will be super sad if [community profile] theaviary ends up shutting down for good, but I also understand what a timesuck modding can be (which is one of the reasons I've been dancing off with no responsibilities - so freeing!) so you do what you need to do.

I have really been enjoying myself, fwiw, and will probably end up noodling through some challenges in April anyways. I've been really pleased with the amount/variety of challenges.

Take the time you need, modding is a ton of work!!!

I will check out the other comm, as well as do challenges in April (the bingo cards! and the two crew live job if I can figure out what I'm doing)!

Hope you're well ♥

You're awesome.
The aviary is awesome.
The sea will be fun, too.

I'm gonna do some of the April stuff because you have some fun and creative and blessedly free-form challenges that I want to do. <3333

THE SONG BIRDS ARE NOT A QUIET NEST!! We sing and everything. ;)

Aww sad to hear about the hiatus but I do understand how time consuming modding a comm could be, especially a landcomm with 50+ members! Thank you so much for all the time and energy you've spent for this comm, I enjoyed participating in it. Hopefully it'll resurrect as ~something, I'll be happy with whatever you decide.

Definitely going to sign up at the new comm, but I'm also going to continue to do some of the challenges here :)

I love The Aviary. A lot.

Maybe the team comms are quiet (though I've never been great at the social team building aspect of team leading), but the challenges are awesome and I love the low pressure.

But I know that life gets in the way sometimes.

Sad to hear about the hiatus. But I can understand how much work it must be. Thanks for being so great and for making such interesting challenges. Also, thanks for posting about The Deep Blue Sea. I have definitely joined over there! And, I finally got my 150 done for March :) Now I can focus on DBS!
