I'm really upset.

So I just found out that the server that I run Elemental Wolves on is closing.

In like two weeks.

Which means I'm going to have to rebuild Elemental Wolves.  But I'll have to learn about a new host and everything.  I don't have time for it, but I don't want to let the project die...

Mostly, I'm upset that no one IRL cares.  They don't understand that I ove coding and making adoptables.  To them, it's pointless.  None of my friends ever look at my stuff unless I ask them to, and even then they might ignore me.  So I'm just...I'm just really upset.

I told everyone I'd continue to project, but is it worth it?  I've moved on to other things, but I did attract a large crowd...I feel like I'm doing a lot of it alone.  I have no time for my studies, I'm failing two classes, and I'm swamped with homework or things I need to do online.  I just don't know...

Maybe I should take a break from coding for a bit?  I really want to write a novel, and I've got a skeleton of a plot that needs to be fleshed out.  I could leave the project in the hands of my team for a bit, or something...

Ugh.  I'm just so sad ):

Pfft yeah I know right. I mean, I've tried to get my RL friends in to it because they like drawing, but it just doesn't appeal to them. ;n;

Takes a special kind of person to get into digital art and web design, I suppose...

Well not necessarily special. It can depend on coincidence, I guess. XD

True, true. A stroke of luck, a bit of chance.

Oh... Nuuu!
D: *hugs* It'll be okay, Bri. I think we both knew the server would close soon enough - it hadn't been touched by the staff there in years.
I think you should continue the project if you want to. And you'll have more time for this novel, because I'm gonna learn some more coding so I can help you. :3 Now, I know I've been making empty promises lately, but this is important to you. Therefore, I am forbidding myself from ignoring it.

Is there anything I can do for you at the moment?

Well, actually, I just found out that CreateAdopts, another Adoptables site host, is opening up in March. That was the site I applied for (didn't get the job, but I'm still stalking the project XD) and it looks like it'll be very successful. So, once it does launch, I think I'll move my site there as long as it has everything I need. Hopefully...

Good. For now, we should probably back everything up, huh?

Indeed...hm, would you be able to do that maybe...? My comp is terribly full of files, and attempts to clean it out have resulted in severe lag, heh heh...But yeah, if you could back up the ToS, home, and any important-looking custom pages, that would be great.

Also...haveyousetupthatsupersecretprojectwevebeendiscussingthepastfewdaysyet? So I could help with setting everything up?

I'll set up our supersecretproject and back things up when I get home. :3 So, probably in a couple hours.
