HEY YOU! YES YOU, TOTALLY SCROLLING PAST THIS JOURNAL TO GET TO THE COMMENTS ON THE MAIN PAGE! READ THIS FIRST KTHNX
Well holy crap, I can't believe that password still worked. Well hello everybody! This is Candy-Ice
, the original co-founder of this club. My friend and I founded this club all the way back in 2006, but my co-founder soon gave up her position as she felt she couldn't keep up with admin duties anymore. I tried passing her torch along to two other members, who were great and excellent people, but I swear that this club is cursed or something because both of them have remained inactive for years. I left some comments here and there on the front page saying "HEY GUYS THIS CLUB IS DEAD YOU CAN STOP ASKING TO JOIN" but it's obvious most of you skipped over those comments. I mean, the last journal entry we had was all the way back in 2007, and we still
get requests (268 messages, holy crap guys, how do you find this club!)
Anyway! It's obviously been such a long time since we've even bothered to touch this club, but is anyone still actually, genuinely interested in this whole anti-recoloring thing still? Personally, I've stopped caring as I'm not looking up Sonic stuff all the time like I used to so I'm not really spotting them as much. BUT if people are interested, I'd be totally fine with converting this to a group, if I can figure out how the hell to do that. I'm not really sure if people even care enough to make anti-recoloring art anymore, but I believe a group would be easier to manage than a club, which back in the day before groups were even invented were just other accounts. I know some clubs have converted to groups although I've only just recently started even being a member of clubs so I know nothing about converting or what it would be like to run. But again, if we really have that much interest, I'm willing to do it! Of course, this club would get a major overhaul, starting with having an actual approval for members instead of just saying "yeah you're in", so we can stop having recolors in the anti-recolor group. It'd also be a general anti-recolor group instead of just Sonic (though admittedly there's a ton in that fandom). I'd also set up some rules and FAQ's to help people understand what a recolor is and how to not have one as a character, since I realized exactly how many of those comments we get. Also, while I'm at it, PLEASE stop sending us links to people who recolor and telling us to send in the hounds!
That is NOT what this club was made for, and linking to users with the intention of insulting them is harassment and can get you and potentially the club banned. So don't do that.
So yeah. It's been five years since I've even touched this club, since I stepped down from my admin duty a long time ago, but I'm surprised to see interest in this club still. So, if you guys want me to try turning it into a group, let me know here! I'm no longer a dumb kid so I promise I'll actually run this club correctly this time. Thanks a lot for your interest and take care everyone!
