Big Big Update!

Hi Everyone! I have a big announcement to make.

Due to personal issues as well as a waning interest in maintaining this site, I am handing over the project to my lovely SysOp, Kit. There is one exception to this - the name will be changed.

My main reasons for doing this have to do with the stress involved. I was feeling overwhelmed with everything and felt that I could not provide the level of service that I wanted to and thought you all deserved. After consulting with Kit he agreed to take over the site with the above exception.

The service will remain the same but it will have a new name and theme. Everyone who donated to have an account will remain early account holders. Everyone who is a beta tester retain their account status. The service itself will remain the same other than having a new name.

Kit's interest and desire to provide a good service rivals that of my own excitement earlier on in the project and I know he will do a good job.

Thank you everyone for your support for the past .... year almost and I hope you will continue to support Kit in getting the site off the ground!

Please watch scribblit as Kit will be making a post of his own.

I have had trouble getting my account validated...when I finally do will Kit know to update my account to early contributor? As I did donate back during the donation period?

Fourthed. Going to miss Scribblit (as a name), though. Been advertising it left, right and center... :-)

I'll be sad to see you go, Lyn, and sadder that the name's changing. I was very fond of the name Scribblit.

On the other hand, I'm fully confident in Kit's ability to run this site as well as you've both been doing. Good luck to you both, and I hope your personal issues work themselves out. ♥

Like mysticshell said, I'll be sad to see both you and the name go, but I wish you well in whatever projects you take on next!

i understand wanting to make the site perfect before it opens but i really think if you wait for it to be perfect it will never open. livejournal still has problems today. insanejournal has problems every other day. it's something you fix as you go, if we wait for every problem to be fixed the site will never be opened.

This isn't about making the site perfect, it's about providing a good service - something I didn't feel I could do any longer which is why I am handing the site over to Kit - who has the drive and desire to get the site up and running.

I hate to repeat everyone, but yeah, I'll miss you too. I hope you stick around and journal on Scribblit a bit-- you're such a fun person and don't deserve all of this stress.

Aww namechange is a bummer, I really, really liked "Scribblit". Ah well, maybe Kit will surprise us with something cool sounding.

Nono, but with "Identity Crisis" we can get a nifty dark themesong from the London Symphony Orchestra and maybe a hit Fox drama.

No 'prefix' journal anything!

I'm sorry to hear this because I liked the name Scribblit.

I haven't posted anything in my journal since the first switch around and need to backup. I've been waiting for things to be declared stable. Now...

I'm still glad you started this. And I've noted Kit working his hiney off. I hope things all end well for everyone.

Ditto--I've been waiting for stability before I spend the time to really customize things, and write heavily.

Lyn, we'll miss you. I hope you stick around in some manner, because you're a tough but kind admin and always very helpful.

Echoing what everyone else has said; thanks for all your hard work thus far. The project wouldn't have happened without you. I'm sure Kit will do a great job.

Bummer on the name change, though. I loved Scribblit.

Aw, man. Hate to see you go, Lyn! But I understand when real life is more important. Good luck with everything! :)

I'm sure Kit will do a great job with the site.

Can't honestly say I didn't see this one coming. I'm sure Kit will do fantastic. He's done a pretty great job thus far.
