Where is every one?! Hey really, this place seems really dead, I kind of disappeared from here a while ago because of family stuff, but this place seems even less populated.

My skype is [email protected]

Someone give me an update?

A few of us linger...

But looks to be dead.

This place randomly popped into my head a few minutes ago and I got all nostalgic. I'm surprisingly sad with how it is right now...

Been away for longer than I meant to. Hoping to work a little backstory, add an item here and there. Maybe play wiki updates here and there.

Anyone have/want a plan? Not looking to reinvent the wheel but I swear there is a critical mass we can build up to if we all want to put in the time and effort.

Disney is throwing money on the franchise. We should be able to build from that somehow.

The leadership refused to delegate, so nothing could get done, so everyone fucked off. Still an active discord though.

VE had a great run, things just shift over time. I don't think it will ever be gone for those who participated, it's just not active anymore.

PS- thanks for leaving the forums up Kad/Fury

I lurk a lot. Would go regular if we had a solid and dedicated group.

EDIT: Nah, I'll be checking the thread regularly for people. I'd like to see the place revived.

I think there are probably quite a few of us that lurk around here. Checking in every so often when we are feeling a bit nostalgic and get the urge to do something.

I know where I am concerned though, that urge usually fades again as we remember that we have tried to revive it before.

I do not wish to put a downer on things, if this place started up again I would happily join in. But I just do not see how that is going to happen any time soon (I eagerly await being proved wrong).

Sure, but it won't get started again if everyone lurking waits for it to get started again.  It's gotta start up again somehow.

Can we get enough for a single squad? What would we need, five, six people regularly posting?

I'm sure there are a few around that would be interested in that.  We're running on our own servers now, so it will be easier for updates to happen.

Kad, I haven't the time or patience to be anything but straightforward.

The VE has never failed because there weren't people that wanted to write. There demonstrably are.

The VE has failed, again and again, because the people that want to write are subject to the whims of the administration, and a Venn diagram of people writing and administration is basically two circles that have never met.

If people have to wait on you or Tal to get anything done, they're going to get bored and fuck off again.

Nobody gives a shit about the ranks. They're interesting in story, but out of story, nobody gives a flying fuck. I've said before, I said last time we tried to revive, this is a group of friends who want to hang out and write together.

We've been bottlenecked by our need to get everything approved first, and to wait on official stories. Let the group manage itself, delegate enough active people that there are people actively around who can make changes to the roster, or the comnet, or whatever.

When I joined 16 years ago, the whole dictatorship thing worked, but this club doesn't work when it's run that way now.

If this place were ever to work again, you'd have to let the group run itself and have enough redundancies in place that one person disappearing isn't going to cripple the group, as it repeatedly has.

I put a lot of time and energy into the last attempt at revitalization, and it ended exactly the same way the VE ended the first time. With petty squabbles and the administration disappearing on us. I'd be lying if I said I saw that changing. The people coming back to the VE now have lives and families, and waiting three weeks for a story is three weeks we're going to find better things to do than wait. If nothing else, have some fucking respect for people's time.

Last time, there was still a community. There were still people excited to write together. We actually had all our shit figured out, and asked about using the VE infrastructure. We were hoping to rebuild the VE, but modernized. It didn't work out, we got stuck with the same rank and position nonsense and interest dried up again. That community is gone now. There's a handful of people on the discord, but not a whole lot. It's not like last time.

It’s been about 11-12 years since I wrote anything. I still check in here every now and then because of how much I loved VE. It’s sad to read that the leadership flaked out but you are right, I am 30 now with a wife and son and trying to buy my first home, when I was 16-18 and had nothing better to do than Edit my posts it was awesome, but I can’t dedicate that much energy into it.
Wish I could though ;-)

Missing me that old VE fam. We'd be writing the shorts and getting ready for Halloween stories around this time back in 2009.

Well, it *is* Halloweeny time again.

Anyone interested enough to do some kind of reunion/mass casualty cantina story involving an escaped virus or something? No ranks, no pressure, just drinking followed by blasterfire.

I have been sitting on notes involving five different kinds of zombie starters, we could use one of those. Or whatever., I also had a backstory on the Plague War too.
