I guess I've been out of the loop..

They're changing Inkpop?

What Who Where When Why How?

I haven't logged on in a few days and I haven't been on the forums in a few weeks but, did they tell anyone about this? I'm pretty angry.

Naturally when I have time to write and upload a new chapter they decide to go EXTREME MAKEOVER WEBSITE EDITION on me.

If they did tell anyone about changes they are making, what are they doing exactly?.. I liked the old Inkpop just fine...

Leave comments and let me know, if any of you know.. I'm curious.

It was a shock to me too, when I found out. I just never thought they'd actually go through with the whole makeover. I found out from a friend who now goes to inkpop more often then I do (I took a break much like you stated in your post).
My opinion about the new website (or what I read about it):
Pros:
-Faster
-. . .it's new.
-Poetry and Short Story Top 5
-This new Trendsetter thing
-. . .stuff.
Cons:
-New color scheme (bye to the inkpop life as we know it)(More orange instead of green)
-The layout seems too different
-I think most of it should've stayed the same. We all love inkpop just fine, only somethings needed fixing up.
-Apparently, this new makeover will be similar to another writing site (Figment or something, can't remember what they said)
=(

Well, change can be good. I hope this turns out well.

@Hana- Thanks! Well I'm glad it's going to be faster. I always hated waiting for long for stuff to load. Aw good I'm glad there's poetry and short story top 5, those deserve to be recognized too.

And ew... orange? Yuck. They should make inkpop unique, not like another site.
Ugh, I hope this all turns out well. Am I even your friend on Inkpop? I'll hafta add you, what's your name?

They did tell other people.
Blah. I'm not tooooooooo excited about it, just because I'm not very happy with inkpop at the moment. I'm still in that, "I feel like I should leave, but I don't want to" moods.

@Qui- I didn't even know you had one! Haha, I'll have to add you when it's back up

Maybe the new version will end up being better.... hopefully.

I've lost interest in inky lately (<--I made up that nickname). Haha, I don't know Paige. What's your username there? Mine is Hana Rain.

Yup. I never, ever, thought that they'd go through with it. I think I kind of like it. It's a bit easier to read. Most of my friends I had on the site really haven't been online, and I guess if I have some new writing up there I'd post it and see how it does. Figment is kind of cool, but I haven't posted anything on it. I'd like to get back into inkpop but I think that it's just too much to deal with right now!
