Important Announcement [09 Sep 2007|04:28pm]

vanilla_pixie
You may have noticed that I haven't been as punctual as I should be recently. I apologise profusely for this, and can assure you that it's not me just being lazy, or not caring, or anything like that.

I've had a bit of bad luck lately - car accidents, job issues, a death in the family, an accident in the family, etc. On top of that I'm getting married in a little over 4 weeks' time, and my friend is getting married in just 2 weeks' time (yeah, we planned it well, huh?).

So, to keep it short, life is a bit of a nightmare for me!

I've been thinking about what I can do during the next few weeks, when I really need to concentrate on getting everything that I need to do before the wedding done, and getting work issues sorted out too. I didn't want to put the comm on a hiatus.

Once the current challenge (Kate Winslet) is over, I will be releasing several challenges - enough for the number of weeks I will be indisposed (I've seen this done in other challenges before and I think it has worked quite well). When I get back from my honeymoon (mid-October) I will get back on track, as hopefully all the stress will be over (and I'll be feeling human again!).

I hope this is okay with you guys. I really don't want to inconvenience the comm, but I'm struggling with final wedding plans, and I really should be prioritising that right now. :O/

(This will be x-posted in all my comms)

95 years ago today the Titanic hit an iceberg. By tomorrow morning at 2:30 AM, the Titanic would've been under the ocean for ninety-five years, claiming over 1500 lives.

I've decided that I'll appoint someone else co-mod and they can post challenges and what not, they just have to promise to keep the mod's as moderators for the comm. so if they ever come back they still have the ability to do whatever with the community.

So, if you'd like to be a co-mod reply to this post!

I am officially resigning the post of Mod on October 25th. So it's up to the original makers of this community to delete or continue this comm. I'm really sorry, but I just don't have the time anymore. Keep up the great skills and I hope to see your lovely icons around LJ.

If you still wish to keep in touch add me as a friend and I'll eagerly do the same.

Much love!

Unless you guys can convince me otherwise, this community will be closing. No one is participating so obviously none of you care for this community anymore...
