Rule Change and Discord

Posted by Ember on May 9, 2018 at 10:50 PM Comments comments (4)

In light of recent concerns surrounding unofficial chat servers, the moderators and I have decided to institute a new rule: members may not create or participate in unofficial chat servers. This new rule will become effective on May 12th, to give everyone time to shut down any current servers. Any members found in violation of the rule after that point will be suspended or banned from the website, in accordance with the severity of their infraction.

Clan Identities

Posted by Ember on March 26, 2018 at 2:10 AM Comments comments (15)

Last week, River, Alien, and I sent out three surveys. The first survey, written by Alien, regarded the clans’ identities, with a focus on how members understand these identities and which clans members prefer. A clear trend arose in the responses: MoonClan and SunClan were both well-liked and generally well understood, while most members wer...

Hello!  As spring rolls around, it’s time to do some cleaning and- as in past years- take a hard look at this roleplay and see what can be improved. To this end, there are three surveys that I’d like to bring your attention to.

The first survey, introduced by Alienfish into the chatbox yesterday, regards the clans’ in-game identities. It takes three to five minutes to complete and c...

Character Birth Dates

Posted by Ember on March 16, 2018 at 2:05 AM Comments comments (5)

Hello everyone! As you might have noticed, characters’ birth dates are starting to appear on the clan pages and a field for birth date has been added to the Character Updates Page new character form. I’ve decided to make this change for a few reasons:

  1. To make it easier for members to check on their characters’ ages by removing the need to sort through records or the Character Updates Page
  2. To reduce the amount of week...

Ninth Anniversary

Posted by Ember on January 16, 2018 at 1:20 AM Comments comments (13)

Today, January 16th 2018, marks the ninth anniversary of this website’s creation and one of the times of the year when y’all are going to have to excuse me for being sappy. When this website was created, it was just a tiny, disorganized site for a small handful of offline friends. Nearly a decade later, this roleplay has expanded into the community of talented roleplayers that define WCF today and I have never stop being astonished by what t...

EarthClan & EclipseClan Page Updates

Posted by Ember on November 17, 2017 at 6:50 PM Comments comments (4)

Hello everyone! As you might have noticed, I've begun the process of converting the pages and guides to include EarthClan and EclipseClan, rather than NightClan and DawnClan. Most of these changes will involve simple name changes and won’t take long, but others will be more of a process and may take some time. Please be patient while I work on these, the website may be somewhat disorganized until these updates are completed.

Hi y’all! The next gathering is scheduled to take place this coming weekend, November 10-12th.

Plot Planning

Posted by Ember on September 29, 2017 at 10:40 PM Comments comments (84)

Hi guys!

Recently there’s been some talk of deviating from our original plan to move EarthClan into DawnClan’s former territory and EclipseClan’s formation as outlined on the Planned Events Section of the History Page, toward a more peaceful route.

Either way, I think the most important thing is that whichever way we want to go, we should start actual...
