    State of CWA Address

    Been a while since I've talked to all of you, but as many of you know...circumstances have changed somewhat.

    For those of you who don't know, Jon has left the site for the foreseeable future. As Jon was the boss for CWA and in charge of the shows, this means we are currently without somebody to head up this e-fed.

    Now, you might be asking: "Wait, Cyrus! Doesn't that make YOU the new boss?"

    The short answer is "no." The longer answer is that, while I am a moderator for this section, I have no desire to run the fed itself. As Jimmy King can attest to, running this ship is a draining experience and I will not commit to running this fed simply because I would not be able to give it the attention and dedication it deserves.

    So, this leaves us at a bit of a situation. And it's going to take some time to sort all this out. Time that unfortunately means we can't focus into the fed itself with regards to shows.

    Effective immediately, CWA is on a hiatus until we can sort out exactly how we're going to proceed forward.

    This leaves us with two options. Option A is that we find a new boss for the fed. I'm willing to entertain any possible applicants for the position, but understand exactly what you're signing up for. This job is going to require an enormous amount of dedication and responsibility, and while folks like myself, Shake, and Jimmy King are willing to assist, the onus of running the fed, grading promos, and promoting the storylines will be on you. If you are interested, shoot a PM to myself, Shake, and Jimmy.

    Option B is that we consolidate with FWA. This has been on the minds of several of us e-fed moderators for some time, but we've been wanting to keep both feds running and running well for as long as we could. Obviously this wouldn't be the end of the world and the e-fed section would still be in good hands with Shake and his crew. But we wanted to see if anybody wanted to take up the task before we committed to that.

    I wanted to take this time to thank each and every one of you for putting so much of your time and creativity to CWA and making it as successful a fed as I've had the pleasure of being a part of. E-feds come and go, but only the very best last for any period of time like CWA has. You all have impressed me and inspired me to be a better and more creative writer and there's been countless great stories and feuds over the years.

    Thank you all for your understanding. I will keep you posted when decisions and plans are made.

    Re: State of CWA Address

    It's a weird situation to be in for the CWA and totally understandable decision.

    I just want to echo the thoughts about taking over: running an efed is draining. You're under absolutely zero obligation but it requires some dedication. If CWA is going to continue then it really needs someone to give it that.

    If there's nobody who feels they can do that then they are welcome to join the FWA. I have already said that Cyrus and Jimmy could join the mod team with lighter workload also.

    But, really, that's a last resort. It sucks that Jon disappeared like this. Hopefully something good comes out of it.

    Big thanks to Jimmy and Cyrus for their hard work.

    The most amazing thing about this recent conversation is that I've learned AON is even more of a waste of space than I thought he was previously

    I couldn't have said it any better, so good on you for that Cyrus. We'll figure something out but until then we need everyone to just sit tight and hope for the best.

    I did it for five years. It's not easy, but it is rewarding if you commit yourself to the members, storylines, and community. And you get a shitload of management experience in dealing with different personalities and making everyone either happy or content with decisions.

    To be blunt. This fucking sucks. I was getting into my groove with my character. Expect a contract from me for FWA in the coming days.

    You're certainly more than welcome, my friend. Give us a look. I would however, wait and see if anyone takes the reigns over the CWA.

    Re: State of CWA Address

    Yeah, I wouldn't wish to run an e-fed since it would be an incredibly draining (though rewarding) experience. But if the job were thrust upon me, I certainly wouldn't deny the opportunity to get my feet wet.

    It's a tough situation and I don't envy you guys, but I've already told Jimmy I'm willing to help out in any way I can.

    Have you thought about posting in the BTB section about looking for someone to run this efed?

    Re: State of CWA Address

    Since this is so unexpected just give the staff sometime to sort it out. I don't think this e-fed will die just yet. With the support of you guys I am sure we will rise from the ashes once again.

    Just have hope, and we should have an announcement in a couple of days so you guys aren't left in the dark.

    Re: State of CWA Address

    Quick update:

    We've had a couple people apply to take over the fed. Myself, Jimmy, and Shake want to give people time to contemplate applying. We won't be making a decision until around the end of the week.

    I'm assuming it's not "dead", but the powers that be are just making sure that the decision they make is the right one for everyone involved. I would like to just let everyone know that I was one of the people who threw their name in as someone to take over the fed and presented a year plan for things. No matter what decision is made, I'm hoping that CWA is able to stay active but.....downtime is the number one killer of e-feds...

    Re: State of CWA Address

    As a man who runs his own e-fed on another site, I hope you two know what you're in for, the ride is bumpy but it all pays off in the end. :P

    Good luck to anyone putting their paper in the hat.

    I'm sure we'll be the first to know.

    Anyone else throw their name in?
