Atena, Vivo, and I were discussing our time system. As we all know, Dango Daikazoku uses a time system to keep organization and chronology among threads. We have no set system for time passing, instead moving the time frame based on a general sense of consensus among members.
Note that we are primarily in the month of June right now. Clannad started somewhere in April. This means that, in the entirety of the site history, we have only passed two months. The majority of that time has been during "old Dango Daikazoku," before our revival. The time has moved, but not much has happened. No Clannad plots have been started, and nearly all of our old OCs have moved on. The current time frame does not benefit anyone here, really. It's still an important system; without it, some threads would take place in winter and others in summer. It's a good idea to keep a general sense of time for our site, but the current time is "a time of the past." Pun not intended.
I propose that we reset the time frame back to April. This will not affect your characters or threads; we will treat it as if they had still happened, but at "an undetermined point" in the past. This will, however, give our site and new OCs a fresh start. It also gives people who have picked up canons since our revival a chance to work with the time frame for things that have been missed. (Such as the Founder's Festival, which is important in Fuko's arc.)
I'm staff on this website, but I'm not bringing this to the table as a new decree. I'm bringing this forward as a fellow member, because I am curious of what you all think about it. Do you like this idea? Do you dislike it? Does it not really matter to you? Please let me know in this thread!
