Although we have been trying to avoid this for a couple of years now, we regret to inform you all that we are closing this site.
There are a number of reason for it, but redundancy is playing a large factor in it as our sister site - The Elusive Carmen Sandiego (TECS) - is hosted on the same server. After giving it a lot of thought it seems silly to have two sites dedicated to the exact same thing, in the same place.
As our sister site has implemented all of the features that we sought to include here (plus many more) we are choosing to migrate everyone there. Although we are closing this site, we are not getting rid of it completely. It will be archived and linked to from TECS so that you can reference it as needed.
The domain name for this site expires in April. Because of this, We will be turning off the ability to post/do anything on this site on April 1st (this is not a joke. We all know that I reserve April fools day pranks for my brother as that is his birthday). Please make sure that you have created an account on TECS before this point.
Note: The forums on TECS is sorted a bit differently, so some sections may not match what we have here. However, many of the sections that we have here can best be replicated through the user-journals feature (like the fan-fictions and fan-episodes sections). These are community-shared and are a great way to showcase your creativity.
Much like with many of our members who have already made the transition, my screen name there is the same as it is here. The BIG difference is Carmen (and many of the other cannon characters). Stephanie is retiring as Carmen from everything (which is another reason that we are shutting down this site) and the Carmen on TECS is played by Pru.
Pru is amazing! If any of you give her a hard time, you'll be sorry.
We appreciate your cooperation in this merger of sorts. If you have any concerns, please email me about them at firstname.lastname@example.org (my permanent email address).
