    Hey guys.

    For the past couple months, things have been quiet here on Umbra. We haven’t organized any events, we haven’t made updates. Given the state of the world and the situations we’ve all found ourselves in over the last few months, it’s perfectly understandable that real life would force us to put aside luxuries like roleplay to deal with the mental strain.

    But to be clear: we are still all in with Umbra.

    When we started to write out and plan Umbra just about a year ago, we did so with a definite goal in mind. We wanted to be a better, healthier, safer, more communicative site. We told everyone we wanted to do more. We might have dropped the ball when it comes to proving that, though.

    There’s been some frustration over the course of learning how to run a site like this. We’ve reached out repeatedly for feedback, and haven’t gotten much more than vague impressions and silence in return. We want to build a site that you guys want to use, and we need your help to do that.

    In the interest of transparency, we want to acknowledge that we haven’t done as much as we could have to back up our claims of being trustworthy. To that end, we have been thinking of ways to help you help us, to open up convenient, direct, and useful paths for you to communicate what you'd like to see for Umbra moving forward.

    We get it. Sometimes telling admin what you think is intimidating. Some of you only want to write your roleplays and aren't interested in extracurriculars. That's totally fine! For all of you who just want to write, keep at it. We appreciate your dedication. But if you feel inclined to build a better Umbra with us, we have hopefully found a way to make it easier for you to share your ideas.

    Below you will find a link to a short (only four questions!) survey intended to collect your feedback to help us make Umbra even better in this upcoming year. This survey is completely anonymous. We wanted to ensure anonymity for anyone who may be shy in sharing their opinion or worried about administrator retribution (we’ve seen it happen on other sites in the past, we definitely do not want that to happen here).

    Thank you to everyone who takes the time to fill out our survey, and to everyone who has joined our site looking for a safe, comfortable place to write your wonderful stories. We’re honored to have you here with us.
