I cleared them out. Part of the idea of appealing to the masses is that the drop-box isn't cluttered with 68 profiles when some of them probably are defunct by now.
They're not deleted. They're archived. When we actually open up the board and those of you still around create your OOC accounts and the like, I'll fetch the ones still relevant. They'll be completely intact just as you left them. But it also saves the admins the work of slogging through dozens of application all at once. Frankly, if we had to do that, you'd never get through. The volume would just delay the process way too much. Already just think of how much time it would take to go through sixty-eight pending profiles if they were all done at the same time.
The ones that were fully completed and PMed to Koh as being finished (and belong to members still active here, so we know you're around) remain in place, "approved." All the rest will just get reclaimed as wanted when the board's open. The only exception is some of Nuti's were completed but pending her OOC account being made to post shop applications, NPC information, adoptables, that kind of thing. Since we'll allow you guys to make OOC accounts right from the start when we /OPEN/ she'll be able to finally post all of that and her profiles can finally have the pertinent links and approved.
I'm going to be honest. The reason I opened up the drop-box in the first place was because we needed our active canons in place so that when we open up brand new and shiny to the adoring public, they already know who's taken. We only had four canon applications completed in four months, guys. :C I really don't want to slap a time limit on those of you who didn't complete yours but we'll play that by ear once we're actually open.
And if for some reason you all completed apps but didn't PM Koh as requested, just do that when the board opens, nbd. I know Mandy was in this boat, not sure if any/how many of you others are.
Mine were all completed I just wasn't aware of the PMing Koh requirement...obviously didn't see that requirement or I would have done so...so I apologise for that. I'd do so know, but there's nothing to link to...
For those that didn't, as I said, when the floodgates open and you've got your OOC account made, just PM Koh then with the characters you were going to put in rotation and they'll get shuffled back to the drop-box. Not a problem. Just saves on volume.
You wrote a page back that there will be a Korraverse era. Are you planning on doing probending tournaments too? I mean like a few characters fight against each other in an RP with a game master, who keeps things controlled.
