Hey all. This is Shard (lethe, dtf-stock, and world-of-zekira here on DA).
Over the last couple years, obviously things over on the main nexus site have gone sideways. I don't know quite what happened - because at one point the site was overtaken by a chinese porn spam squatter. However, the site IS still up. I don't know who is paying for it? It's not been updated in years, presumably because most folks like myself thought it was gone.www.nexusofdragons.com/
The name's changed, I'd love to know whether it's fully legitimate and still owned by the same folks before? Please?
Thing is, the forum IS still up, and it IS still available for use. I have permanently revoked any dragons that I can no longer find up online that came from any of my adoptions, even those owned by long-term users, because ... like, 8 years is more than long enough on some clutches, and 'never' was why some were going to come to my Rookery too.
But if you have an old login, you can still access the site's forum! I don't know about new membership there, until it's clear who actually owns the site's hosting, I'd say 'look but don't touch' if needed.
All that aside: here on Deviantart!
I personally WILL be remaining on hand, as I loathe other art sites more than I loathe DA's Eclipse. But! Eclipse has its issues particularly with groups. They are slow to fix the problems, and as such anything that is submitted here might take longer to be approved. Settings got changed for NO apparent reason, and I'd missed numerous applications due to that fact - and, because of 'it takes three to approve' (which I changed to ONE, because... I'm the only one visiting it seems, it changed back?! to something it had never even been?) have added my third account for that purpose alone.
But I hope that the Nexus will become more active. There are many other non-Pernese adoptables out there, and I'd like to keep getting lovely work more exposure even if we're a small group. The more the merrier!
So please be patient while Eclipse rolls out. If there are submissions in my queue, I'll try and get to them asap, but DA has been atrocious about notifications for such.
Anyway - any old school members of the Nexus, please do come around and say hi if you wanna. I did notify the forum over on the site of any of the retractions and take-backs I've done, in the hopes that someone might say 'wait I have my site' but... no replies in a year so... yeah T_T
I'm also probably going to put up specific 'Wings of Fire' folders, so that they can be organized up a little easier, our old-style adopt-and-wait just isn't really a thing here any longer.
