SEPTEMBER 6TH


• Hey everyone, September OTMs are up, and we're trying a couple new things out! First, we are allowing up to one staff member per month be nominated for member of the month. And second, we are allowing members to nominate in the Relationship category in addition to threads. It's all laid out in the thread here if you want to know more.

These are both on a trial basis, so if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know! Send me a PM and we will discuss.

This message is hard for me to write, but I'm just going to get straight to the point. Many of you have probably noticed - or will notice now - that the board is offline. Without beating around the bush, yes... Diamond in the Rough is being closed. To some this may come as a complete surprise... and to others, this has been a long time coming. There was a specific incident that served as a catalyst for this sudden closing and I apologize that most of you will probably not get a proper explanation for it... as I have no desire to drag anyone's name through the mud. But the truth is, I've felt for quite a while that this day was coming. I didn't expect it to be today... but... I feel it's the right decision and the best for everyone involved.

I know this is going to make a lot of people mad and upset. I get it. I do. This is sudden and painful and I am beyond upset. But all I can say is I feel, 110%, that this is the right thing to do. The board is and will always be available offline to current members. You will have access to all of your characters and posts and such. I only ask that no-one re-uses this concept elsewhere... as there is a possibility that maybe, one day, we can build something new and fresh.

I'm sorry that it had to end this way... I really am... and I wish you guys the best in everything. Thank you for the good times <3

Goodbye

-- Alice

I'd like to clarify as well, as this seems to be some misinformation being passed around by certain members, that I did not just close DERP because I 'disliked the way it was run.' As the owner of Diamond in the Rough, I passed on the management to Forest and Sam when I left. But I still continued to pay for premium and for the domain name of the site. I was still the owner and the root admin and that was clear when I left. While I was gone, people would come to me and complain, vent, express frustration, cry, and talk about how they wanted to leave. I saw multiple people leave over what the site had become. A vat of negativity and toxic feelings. Of animosity and badmouthing - in which I am certainly not blameless. But I left it alone because I want to stay out of things.

Last night, I signed onto a post that hit me right in the gut. Because this post displayed the exact nature that I described above. For you new members who have joined after I left - you don't know me. But I ran DERP faithfully for over two years. It was like my child. Then it morphed and changed and caused me so much anxiety that I couldn't function. So I left. When I came back to this message, it triggered that same sort of reaction. It was mean, nasty, and not fair. It was indicative of DERP going back into the dark ages of harsh activity rules and nasty words. After I promised that that wouldn't happen again, I couldn't stand seeing something like this. So I acted.

There are a few of you who are new and will not understand the significance of the above because you did not experience it. That's fine. Like I said, you can be mad at me if you wish and you can think of me however you'd like. I did it because I could not allow this cesspit of negative feelings to continue... and I could not condone someone I could no longer trust perpetuating those feelings and ideals. That is what it is. Were you punished for that decision? Yes. Unfortunately, I could not close the board without hurting a lot of people. I'm sorry. But what's done is done and I am okay with this, whether you agree with it or not. Not happy about it by any means, but I'm okay with it.

If you want more information on what happened, at this point - to prevent the spreading of misinformation - I'd be happy to share. I have absolutely nothing to hide. PM me on this account and I will get it. But I will not respond to messages that are sent just to bash me. You can take that elsewhere.

- Alice
