Like all good things, they must come to an end. Instead of sadness and regret, we’re leaving with fond and happy memories. Every member has helped mold the timeline and canon for this group — and wow! It was quite a ride, wasn’t it?
We apologize to new applicants, new reserves, and old members who have came to Zodiakos hoping to fill a need for RP. There are many other groups who are active and provide a nice change.
From the beginning, Justin and I worked to make this a community that not only involved plot, but feedback from the members. You guys helped shape it, you should feel proud. For every inside joke, for every wacky antic on Meme Monday, for everything Zodiakos achieved, it was with the help of our members.
After all, this community was a place where RPers could come together to find something that hadn’t found in previous or future groups. It was a place people could be goofy, but still have a serious character development.
It’s not bitterness or disappointment that closes Zodiakos down, but an overwhelming feeling of being tired. We don’t want to make this a chore. So, we’ve decided to go ahead and end it while we can smile and feel proud.
So, from Justin and Jasmine, we thank the members. Not only that, but those who helped spread the word and speak highly of the place. We thank Sky who has been devoted as well, something that we were shocked to have as a mod. Sky, you genuinely enjoyed our events, offered feedback, and helped keep the workload off when times got hard. So, thank you for that.
We find happiness in the fact that Zodiakos helped jump start the creation of other groups. We find happiness in the fact that Zodiakos helped implement new things that makes roleplay on Tumblr generally more fun. We find happiness in the fact that Zodiakos was and is a place that people learned to RP, and we hope everyone keeps a warm memory of what we put so much effort into making and upholding.
It’s been a fun time all in all. It’s just time to throw the towel in and call it quits. Maybe the group will be back, who knows. But, for now. It’s not fair to continue something that we can’t put our heart and soul into. It’s not healthy and it’s not true. This feeling has been a long time coming.
Thank you all for such fondness. Stay classy, everyone.
