In light of overwhelming player support, and to no small amount of relief on part of the mods:
Singularity is moving to Dreamwidth.
We are working on a timeline to make the move as smooth as possible, with the goal of being up and running on DW around mid-January. That will be posted in the next day or so. For now, there are two important details:
1. Dreamwidth accounts. Free account creation on DW closes at the end of the year, so you have two days to make your accounts before you'll need an invite code. Invite codes shouldn't be a problem--many players have already made accounts and so have codes to give out, and the DW staff has been generous with RPs in the past, but doing it now presents the fewest hassles. Create an account here: http://www.dreamwidth.org/create
2. Changes to the reserve/apps schedule. To accommodate the move, we are extending the December reserve round through the first week of January. The January app round will run through the middle two weeks of the month, and the January reserve round will be a short one, running for the last week of the month.
The new schedule is:
January 8th: Reserves close/apps open.
January 22nd: Apps close/reserves open.
February 1st: Reserves close/apps open.
We will be back on the normal schedule for February. We know we're making people wait an extra week, and we apologize, but there's no way we can deal with the move and processing applications at the same time. The reserves and apps pages will be edited to reflect this.
On a personal note, we want to thank our players for bearing with us through LJ's changes while we examined our options, and we hope we've made as many people happy as possible. We know there are some who would prefer not to move, and if there's any way we can make the transition easier for you, please let us know. If you decide to leave the game rather than change services, you will be missed, but we understand that this move isn't the best choice for everyone, and we wish you luck in your future games.
Thank you all, and stay tuned for details.
