The mods have decided to put new topics up every other month rather than monthly. This will allow the current topics to have a better chance of being used. Thank you.

As we no longer do activity checks we would really appreciate it if you'd give us a head's up when you decide to leave the community. The chances that the mods will catch it when you do it is pretty slim to none as we don't get notifications when someone removes themselves. It takes just a second to let us know, and it's highly appreciated.

You can either email us at eclecticmods@gmail.com , pm the mod journal or comment here where the comments are screened. Thank you.

The mods have decided to take the month of February off from posting topics to the community. We have been working non-stop in one community or another posting new topics bi-weekly or monthly (depending on the community) for three years, and we're feeling a little burned out. This is our first hiatus, and it's to give us a chance to recharge our creativity. Old topics are always available to be used, and without activity checks being in place we figured this shouldn't put anyone out. Thank you, all of you, for your participation in this community. You guys are the reason we have been inspired to post new writing topics, and we're looking forward to coming back to you in March. See you then.

It's a new year, and with it the mods have decided to start a new policy regarding activity at the community. There will no longer be activity checks. Write when you want, as much or as little as you are inspired, and rest assured as long as you want to be a member of this community, your place is guaranteed here.

With the busy holiday season just now ending and the community coming off of a two month hiatus with no activity checks, the mods have decided to perform the check for December on Monday, January 4th, noon EST. This coming up weekend is the first free weekend that many have had since the holidays have started and we wanted to give everyone a good chance to get caught up and also to remind you about getting something posted since it's been a while since we have done any activity checks.

Monday, January 5th at noon EST, we will be doing a full clean-up of all muses that have not posted and commented to posts for the months of November or December. In order to still be considered current, you will need to have commented to the November or December topic post with your topic response or completed RP thread.

The topics for January will most likely go up sometime tonight or early tomorrow.

Thanks so much for writing with us and have a Happy New Year!!

-The EM Mods

The next activity check will be on JANUARY 1st. If you have not completed a topic in November or December you will be removed. That basically means that if you are a member now you have from now until December 31st to have one topic completed. We will resume our regular scheduled activity checks beginning January 1st.


Comment to this post with the link to the prompt after you write it, or rp link after you finish it. As always remember to comment here with your October prompt or rp link and add it to your memories. Also, a reminder all challenges are due on the first of the month at 12am (midnight) EASTERN time and must be 150 words minimum to count for monthly activity. Thank you to those who offered us topic suggestions for this month's topics.
