Spotlights for January 2020

Spotlight Soul

The Spotlight Soul for January is Remy Debois (Draiko)! Ah, youth! Clumsy paws and pudgy bellies! But not all has started out so kindly for our dear Remy - his traumas leave him with night terrors and deep complexes. Taken into the fold of the Tejada family, he's started down a path to healing, but what does the future have in store for this pup?

Soldier of Love

It was super close at the beginning of the December with several daily contenders, but veldt once again pulls through in the latter half of the month despite holidays and everything! Thank you and congrats once again! The avatar artist this month is Gen! Please remember to PM to claim your prize within five days!

Featured Pack Adoptable

This month's featured character is Ramsey of Mistfell Vale

Being the son of a leader (two actually, unbeknownst to him!) has always been exposed to the inner workings of packlife. From a tender age, he's been forced to listen to his mother's council meetings and even tagged along to the Leadership Summit in Casa! Naturally, this hasn't left much time for romping around as kids should. Paired with his mother's refusal to reveal the identity of his father to him, the boy has had a very odd life so far indeed! Will he grow up to follow in his mother's footsteps? Or will he rebel like his oldest brother Dan?


News & Updates

Merry January and the start of a fresh new decade! It's shining and bright and we're off to a beautiful, calm--

jk, there's a storm comin', Harry

What's this about a wizard blizzard?

SoSuWriMo begins!

What's the sound? Dozens of roleplayers typing furiously? Oh yeah, January's never calm, is it? Best of luck to all who are writing for 50,000 words! And lots of popcorn for the rest of you! ;)

Yearbook

The 2019 Yearbook is finished! Peruse this and all the other yearbooks for over a decade of memories, statistics, history, and nostalgia!

Special shout out to our mod team for doing a bulk of the heavy lifting on putting this together and to all who took the time to contribute! 'Souls has a long and rich history, which can be intimidating to catalogue, so we appreciate all who take the time to help!

Wiki Clarifications & Updates

A small reminder that wiki pages should aim, first and foremost, to present information in a clear and easy-to-read manner. While some color and decorative elements in headers is okay, we'd like to stress that clarity and readability are most important.

To this end, we've added a clarification to General Guideline #6 to specify that page backgrounds should be white and that all headers must contain enough contrast to be easily readable.

Additionally, we'd like to move to discontinue separate "silly" pages on the wiki, such as character soundtrack pages or pokemon player pages. Most of these pages are old and not often used or updated, and we feel they may be more appropriate for a more transient/temporary space, such as the 'Souls-related section of OOC Garbage. It's fine to include small silly sections within normal character or player pages, but these things having their own pages seems largely unnecessary.

If you currently have a separate "silly" page on the wiki, we ask that you relocate its contents to its associated character/player page. We'll begin PMing players about this soon.

We don't wish to stifle creativity on the wiki, but we need to strike a balance between the wiki as players' personal space and as our community's collective history book. Players wanting more freedom in customisation and organisation are encouraged to consider making mini websites for their characters.

Staff Update

Sunny has retired from the 'Souls Assemblage to focus more on real life.

Sunny's contributed tons to the board over the years, including the automated upload system for the Yearbook entries and the original thread prompt and character generator, and we're really gonna miss them! But they'll still be lurking around with characters, not all's lost. <3 Thanks for all your hard work, Sunny!
