    Thats great.

    BUT...what about those of us who didnt bail ship and hung in there through all the ups and downs?

    I love(ed) this place.  But I let my ascendant lapse until such time as the direction is clear.

    @Keryth987 - I can't make any official comments at this time, but suffice to say no one has been forgotten.

    All the best,

    @SkidAce, I don't want to hijack this thread since it's for the promotion, but if you're up for it, I'd be interested in talking with you about what you mean more specifically in terms of the direction "being clear". There has been tremendous movement, and I'm wondering if there's something more I can be doing to address this sort of concern. From my vantage point, there's been a great deal done, with lots more to follow. Just off the top of my head, there's been:


    • Active community management re-established

    • Implementation of a development road map

    • Regular updates to the community of actions/events on the back end

    • Support ticket coverage and bug fixes

    • Renewed execution of "nuts and bolts" elements like game systems and logos, Campaign of the Month badges and distinction, and the Help area

    • Development of upcoming features

    You could send me a PM to discuss, or we could arrange a Skype or Discord chat, whatever would work for you, just let me know.

    All the best,
    - Kallak

    SkidAce, you can believe what Kallak is saying. I've seen what they are doing and I'm pleased with the direction that is being taken. The powers that be are definitely paying attention to us and working to correct issues!

    I had thought about canceling my Ascendant membership, but am no longer thinking about it! The company is obviously interested in making this site work and keeping us on, so as of right now, I'm staying.

    I've even restarted an old OP campaign!

    I will message you Kallak, I have nothing but respect for you (You explained some of your code for me ages ago), and would not want to cast any gloom over a place I hve enjoyed since 2010.

    With such assurances such as Johnprime's, I plan on reupping my Ascendant, but it will not be on auto renew like before.

    Thanks...

    I second John's renewed enthusiasm. And just a few months ago I was in the process of moving Shadows off of here, but with the renewed communication and progress, I've decided against that.

    I, too, am cheered by the renewed action of the PTB and especially all the work Kallak's been doing. I was in the same boat as some of the others--in the process of moving all my work to another platform. I've put that on pause for now because of the new activity and interest.

    Things are much better now than they were a year ago.  I heartily recommend Ascendancy to all.
