SEPTEMBER 8TH


• It's time for something a bit different! We've just put up a discord server to use for chatting and more. It's just for fun and experimenting with, so if you don't want to join, don't feel like you have to! The cbox will still be used just as often! You can join the discord server HERE. It should take you through the steps of joining, but if you need any extra assistance, PM or message Pond!

• OTM nominations are up as well! Submit your nominations HERE by the 11th!

• As always, we're looking for feedback on how to improve the site! If you have any input on the current way we're doing OTMs, please let us know. We're also looking for more feedback on Activity Checks. How are you feeling about them? Stressed? Bored? Do you even like them? You can message any member of staff or submit it anonymously to our tumblr!

I'm back in school! My posting will definitely slow down and have random bumps when I feel like putting off assignment! Things are a bit stressful because I'm close to graduating, but I'll still be around!


I'm always available to chat, answer questions, etc. on Discord at Lindylemonn#4814!

SEPTEMBER 18TH


• I know what you're thinking: "Didn't we just have an activity check???" And the answer is yes we did! But we're trying out a new method of tracking activity, inspired by what a lot of y'all have been doing already by keeping record of your posts on site. We want to make a conscious move away from the mentality of "saving" our characters, and back toward posting for posting's sake! We hope this to be a step in the right direction. Check out our new system HERE for more info.

And yes, you still have until OCTOBER 4th to post in the AC so do not fret! Allow yourself to get those posts in on your own time, without the last minute dash to post for all your kiddos. As always, let us know if you guys have any questions.

• In other news, we have finally retired our Renaissance Faire Event to the Past & Future forum. If you didn't get the chance to post while the event was active but still want to have some fun at the Ren Faire, by all means please do! It will remain here for your viewing & posting pleasure.

• For those of you that participated, you have all been given If you believe you are missing your award, please PM me! But please keep in mind we will not be handing out the award for posts dated after today's date.

• As that chapter comes to a close, we look forward to our 2ND ANNIVERSARY which is coming right around the corner! Are you excited because we certainly are. Until then, keep shining jewels!

OCTOBER 5TH


• Alright everyone, that is it for our September Activity Check! If you missed the check for any reason and would like to discuss your options, PM ME.

We were glad to see that so many of you were receptive to this way of activity check-ing, and we will continue to tweak them as the months go on. Please make sure you keep up to date on all info as they change and develop - we will be making it clear as we can.

• We are in the process of cleaning out the boards and claims! If you are not sure if you are up to date on your claims, PLEASE DO SO NOW. If you have new babs, a new plotter, or anything else that needs updating, don't forget! Double check your claims now!

• But while all the tidying up is going on, swing on by this month's OTMS! We have posted them HERE and they will remain open until OCT. 9TH! Go and share some love for some special gems and give a big thanks to Pond for setting everything up for me!

• And last but not least, I wanted to bring attention back to our Tagging & Alerts Info thread HERE. When you tag posts, make sure you are doing so properly, or your thread partners will not get any notifications! You don't want your threads to collect dust when your partner never sees them. If you aren't sure whether or not they've gotten your notification - especially if you've been waiting a long time - just ask! Communication is always best and it never hurts to talk it out.

OCTOBER 12TH


• GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS????? It's Endless Diamond Sky's SECOND ANNIVERSARY! So let's party!

• First off, is our lovely new skin recolor to kick off our birthday festivities! Everything should be in order, but if you are having any issues, please let a staffer know.

• Next up, we are pleased to roll out a new type of event on EDS: POST OLYMPICS! It's a post-a-thon meets prompts in what we hope to be a fun and challenging event. Check it out HERE! This event goes until NOVEMBER 12TH so don't wait, and good luck!

• If you're looking to share some love, send a thank you note, or just share some fond memories of the last two years, head over to our I ♥ EDS thread right here! We've gone through a lot since our opening in 2015 and let's take a moment to spread some birthday joy.

• Next is our crowd favorite and EDS October staple: the COSTUME CONTEST! We had such a good turn out last year, and we wanted to bring this back. Please read the rules and guidelines HERE and start scheming up the perfect costume! But don't dilly dally, entries will close October 31st~

• And it just keeps coming! We have also DOUBLED the amount of awards we now offer on EDS. Go take a look HERE to see if any of your characters apply!

• Last but not least - the ACTIVITY CHECK is up now! Since we had a lot of success the last time around, we are going to stick to our trial of the longer activity check. Please still read the rules carefully, as this month the AC ends November 2nd! Because of the shift in schedule, will provide plenty of notice before it closes, but DO NOT WAIT! Please PM ME or SAM if you have any doubts you will miss the check.

OCTOBER 17TH


• Congrats to this month's OTM winners! Check out the banner for the lucky few and be sure to send them some love when you see them.

• We have a new addition to the THREAD MODERATION topic! If you look there's now a 'finished thread' button. This is a code that you ( not staff ) can post once you've completed a thread. Just a way to give you that sense of accomplishment and makes finishing up a little more satisfying and official! ( Don't forget to post that you want the thread moved in the thread moderation topic though, just to make it easier on us to keep the board nice and tidy. )

The category threads have been closed, but you can still peruse them to pick your faves and vote! Check out the info thread HERE for more details and the code for your ballot. You can vote until SUNDAY, NOV. 5TH and then winners will be announced shortly after. So go vote, vote, vote!

• On a more serious note, THE ACTIVITY CHECK WILL END TODAY. This has been in place since it was posted, so this should not be a surprise to anyone. If you still have any doubt whatsoever about your ability to make the AC, PM SAM OR AMANDA.

NOVEMBER 19TH


• Wow guys November just flew by, right? We are a little belated on posting our OTM winners, but they can now be found in the top banner! Congrats to all our winners this month!

• Last week we also cleaned up our 2-year anniversary event, in order to make some room for our quickly approaching winter event! Sit tight for that, but in the meantime, we'd like to say that we're so glad we got such a positive response to this event! We're so proud of everyone challenged themselves and we hope you had fun - everyone who participated got an award as thanks from us. We hope to do some prompt-related events again!

• And of course, just a friendly reminder that the Activity Check closes DECEMBER 1st. DO NOT WAIT to post your characters - even if not all of your characters have posts yet. December is fast approaching and if you wait until the last minute you may very well lose your characters! Do not risk it!

DECEMBER 1ST


• Happy December, gems! November flew right on by and it seems it did for everyone else too. The AC is now CLOSED and we are in the process of cleaning out our claims and forums. If you missed the AC for any reason, PM me or Sam to discuss your options.

• On a lighter note, part one of our late autumn/early winter event is now up! Come on down to Haven Hill for a huge Harvest Feast to be spent with friends and family. See HERE for more information on how to get involved. If you have any questions, let a staffer know, or pop into our "Help" topic on Discord!

• In addition, we have also set up a sub-forum for IC holiday gift-giving, an EDS tradition 3 years in the making. Set up a "tree" or whatever you like and get to some good old-fashioned gifting! Check out the thread HERE for more info.

• OTM Nominations are up HERE! They close on the 6th, so get your votes in soon!!

• That's it for today folks, but stay tuned for more fun stuff coming later this month! Keep shining, jewels!

DECEMBER 9TH


• OTM winners have been posted! You can find them in the top bar as usual, be sure to congratulate our lovely gems on their wins next time you see them!

• The activity check has also been posted. Reminder that it will close on JANUARY 1st! Seeing as December is such a busy month in general please be sure to get your post in sooner rather than later. These last two months have a tendency to whip by if you're not careful.

• Last but not least, we'd appreciate it if everyone made a run through of their threads to make sure that we didn't miss any that needed to be moved during the post-ac clean up! If you do find any take a second to post them in THREAD MODERATION, thank you c:

DECEMBER 27TH


• Happy Holidays, gems! We hope everyone had a lovely holiday season and we're looking forward to a happy new year~ As we did last year, we are kicking off further holiday fun with our 12 Days of Postmas event! Due to our belated posting, it will go until January 8th! See the info thread HERE for more details.

• Also a reminder that December's Activity Check ends JANUARY 1st! For those of you that have not yet posted in the AC thread, please do so to avoid having to rush next week. The AC may close at any time that day so do NOT delay!

• If you have any doubt whether or not you will be able to make the AC, please let an admin know via PM. You can contact Sam, Amanda, or Forest now that she is back from hiatus! Thanks in advance, gems. <3

JANUARY 4TH


HAPPY NEW YEAR GEMS! As we all settle into 2018, we wish you a fortuitous new year and hope that you're starting out the year feeling refreshed.

• We have been busy behind the scenes to clean things up, starting with our Activity Check! If you missed the AC for any reason and want to discuss your options, PM an admin (any admin will do). Claims have been corrected and the forums are being cleared out in the meantime.

• Our Of The Month award nomination thread is up! Check it out HERE, for all the rules and info. Spread some love and good cheer this new year! Nominations end January 7th so get out there and don't forget!

• You may have noticed a neat and tidy new subforum under our Want Ads forum that is solely for Face Claim Suggestions. We realized the single thread was getting too unwieldy to sift through, and figured this would be a more organized alternative. Check out the information thread HERE for all our guidelines (and you can move your ideas from the original thread over if you like!). Happy face hunting!

• Now that we have been open for over two years, we have accumulated quite a lot of registered accounts (over 600, you might have noticed)! In the spirit of a fresh new start, we will be clearing out unfinished and inactive character accounts from old and current members alike. Please contact an admin if you would like us to hold on to any of your unused accounts. We have not yet chosen a cut off date for old accounts, but we would like to know whose accounts you may like to take up at a later date. Let us know by January 11th!

• Last but not least, now is a great time to go through your threads and owes and readdress any that you may no longer want to hang on to. Discuss with your partners, and see if they're feeling the same way. The new year is the perfect opportunity to sweep out the old and ring in the new. If you do, just drop the links in our Thread Moderation HERE. We will clean them up, no questions asked!

JANUARY 10TH


• Hello, gems! Quick announcement here today, starting off with our OTMs! Our winners have been announced a la the top banner as usual. Give them love and a round of applause when you see them next!

• The 12 Days of Post-mas event is now over and awards have been doled out to those of you who managed to finish our 2nd ever Post-mas. We hope you guys enjoyed, and you deserve some congrats too!

• Our Harvest Feast event is still up, and if you haven't gotten involved in some way, there is still time! Surround your characters with family and friends and fill their hunger with delicious food~ And get your fill in a hurry too, because we've got a little something in the works coming up soon.

• And, on a more serious note, our Activity Check is back up and running! This month's check ends FEBRUARY 1st but don't wait to get to posting! If you have any doubt that you can make the AC, PM an admin. A PM is the only way to ensure your safety for this month's check and you can do it at any time before AC ends.
