Egg-Central Stops Updates   Miff | 4/4/2003  comment  log in to like post

It's been a while since I've posted news, a couple of years in fact. It's always best to start with familiar ground, thank goodness for 'The Simpsons'.."Hi! I'm Miff, you may remember me from such places as HomeCreatures or JR Chat, but tonight I'm here to talk to you about A-Norn."

At this point no doubt some of you are no doubt thinking "hey bruv, just who iz A-Norn?", or perhaps "Miff who?", maybe "What am I gonna have for dinner?" ...er..anyway..

These days, A-Norn is better known as Egg-Central webmaster 'Dan'. I've been lucky enough to know Dan for a few years now, when I first met him he lurked under the name A-Norn. It was perhaps a name which did not best reflect the later imagination that A-n would pump into his websites!

Egg-Central, a thriving beast of a web site, and Dan, who according to Sharon is an equally thriving beast of a man, have recently decided to shut shop. It is the latest in a collection of bad news to hit the community. I could easily sit here and take up room on Creatures Caves talking about Dan, his history, his positive points, but I felt a few thought out sentences would perhaps be more appreciated, the idea being you guys will e-mail Dan or leave your comments on the forum, full of nice things to say...! Thus providing news and that fuzzy warm feeling inside, what more could you ask for?! ;-)

Perhaps the first thing that struck me about him when we met was his extreme excitement over his web site Millennium Creatures. I don't recall if it was the new logo, or the domain name, but something had set Dan on over boil and the guy was hyper for about a week! It's this thrive and love of creation that was to mark out him as an individual who would without doubt go on to create huge sites and take extreme satisfaction and pleasure from seeing his hard work rightly adored by many. This is a trait that no doubt he'll be taking to wherever he decides to go next, and one that will serve him very well. This energy for work was only complimented by the amount of time he had for community members, always listening to find out what people wanted and trying to involve everyone in projects. He was a great help on lots of aspects of projects in the community, I benefited from his skills when I had a site and I'm not alone in being thankful! Those who spoke to Dan will also mention his ability to give mature, well thought reasoning to situations. It's no doubt this particular talent is the reason he rapidly became a chat room operator in JR Chat.

I'll wrap this up by saying thanks to Dan, you've been a good friend and I remember our nightly chats on ICQ around the time of websites and before life took us separate ways. I trust that the closure of E-C will not mean the loss of contact with the established friends you have here and wish you the very best of luck with the future.

To the original (and only?) Atomic Kitten fan - adios!

Awesome Quiz!   Rascii | 4/3/2003  comment  log in to like post

I was over at the excellent Albia 2000 today and I noticed something very cool in the news... A Community Member quiz that GryphonNorn has created! Not she why she never told me about it, but I decided to take the quiz anyhow! I filled out all of the questions honestly, and when I hit the submit button it said... "You are Rascii. Nothing like a nice hot cup of PHP to start the day." and had a really cool Bengal norn like my icon. Anyhow, I was very impressed that it actually new who I am. Sound interesting? Click here to take the quiz today!
 
C12DS Project: Back!   ElasticMuffin | 4/3/2003  comment  log in to like post

After originally declaring the project dead, Lacota has now gotten a hold of Clucky and received permission from CL to continue! He has announced his intentions of finishing the entire Creatures 1 to Docking Station project, though the date of release is not yet known. Lacota is hoping that it will be released sometime in the near future, however. Check back here at Creatures Caves for more updates on the situation!

 
Latest from DS Aftermath   Don | 4/3/2003  comment  log in to like post

Posted by Mark Stamps to the DockingStation-Aftermath group:

"Q. Are we allowed to mirror the Creature Labs sites and files?
A. No, not without permission.

Q. So has anyone got permission?
A. Yes, we have been talking with a well known member of the Community and have already agreed in principle that he can host a mirror of all the sites...

I know that the spiders have been set loose with the best intentions, but unfortunately it's meant that the sites effectively closed down early owing to overload. So please, if you want to enjoy your last few moments on the Forums, switch off your spiders now!"
 
Important Update From CL!   Lanky | 3/31/2003  comment  log in to like post

Yes, the fateful day has arrived, as of Thursday, 3rd April, the Docking Station servers are being taken down by the Creature Labs ISP :(. No doubt many of you have received the notice by e-mail, and it can be viewed in full here in the Creatures Caves forums for those who failed to get it.
Not all is lost though! Register your worlds quick and they can be played offline, download your spare DS zip files, and then make sure you get a copy of MNB's wonderful log-in disabler! Available at the Creatures Mainframe.
Ooh, and while you're at it, make sure you know what's going on by joining the DS aftermath newsgroup.

Pause A Life!   Rascii | 3/29/2003  comment  log in to like post

There's a new C3/DS agent out, created by Flonorn, called "Pauses of life". According to its creator, it is a "small apparatus found in a wall cupboard of the laboratory of the shee solitary, able to capture the temporal flu around an object." Sound interesting? Click here to download it!

Norns of Plenty!   Sharon | 3/28/2003  comment  log in to like post

I've moved all the Creatures 1 and 2 Norns from Creatures Incorporated to the Creatures Caves Adoption pages so they'll still be available once Creatures Inc has poofed :) I'll move the C3/DS Norns over sometime at the weekend.
 
C12DS Project Cancelled   ElasticMuffin | 3/27/2003  comment  log in to like post

In the backwash of CL's closing, Lacota has decided to cancel his Creatures 1-to-DS project.

Lacota wrote:
I have some sad news. C12DS will not be finished. nor will it be released in its 75% complete form. There were many reasons behind the termination to this project...

Creature Labs   Don | 3/26/2003  comment  log in to like post

The following news will not come as a surprise following the recent string of events. I can now confirm from a phone call I made to their offices earlier today that Creature Labs finally closed on March 20th due to financial reasons, as I had believed from the recent entry in Lisa de Araujo?s blog. Fear not, we shall be hearing the up-side of this news within a few weeks.

Well, we are sad to say that we will no longer be hosting Pez's great website, Norn Paradise. However, this does mean that we can host a new website! You may want to read the rules for hosting first, and if you are interested, drop me an email at this address.
Many will enter, few fill win! ;)

 
C3 Official Website... Back?!   Rascii | 3/22/2003  comment  log in to like post

Alien & Michael of Alien's Creatures World have done something spectacular! After Creatures3.com disappeared quite some time ago, they thought it was such a shame that all of the images and information would be gone for good. This is why they have decided to put it back up! You can find the non-flash version over at this new URL, so make sure you check it out today!
