Hi everybody.  I am here today to talk to you about our Wanted Ads. Yes, isn't it really cool that you have a place to recruit volunteers and look for work?  I sure thought so. :D

However, I would like to make a few observations. These may seem like common sense, but they bear saying anyway, so please read them.
  1. Classifieds are only useful if there are people actively looking for work. That being said, we have a lot of groups & OCTs looking for help, and it seems like many of them do not find it from this group.  I can't force anybody to help when they aren't willing, but I would like to make a simple request of our watchers & members: Please look through our Wanted Ads, and see if you can volunteer.  OCTs don't work unless we work together, so please take a look and see if there's anybody you can help!.
  2. If you have posted a Wanted Ad ever, please let us know when your needs have been filled.  I don't want to institute a blanket policy like, "We will remove all ads that are more than 8 weeks old," but if you can't be bothered to maintain communication with us when you find what you are looking for, then we can't be bothered to maintain your ad. :D
That's all for this announcement.  Until next time~ :wave:

    Hosted by: iSpazzyKitty

    Three years ago, over 20 people were selected to die at the hands of Markus Flynn, the host of Darkworld OCT. Now, Darkworld has a new ruler, Eileen Lesher, and she is continuing the story, as well as the legacy of death that Markus started. Darkworld's new ruler may appear to be just as corrupt as Markus was, but in reality, she is just trapped. Let's hope the competitors can save her.
