It's probably the question a lot of people wonder about right now, so I'm going to be clear. WE DID NOT RESIGN (unlike what some people make it sound).
This is the announcement I made, and after that, both Annie and I were VERY clear that we didn't abandon the FC, but that most of our stuff were moved here (actually, because of people not respecting our wishes when we share goodies, AND the mods acting up in the vol54 poemgate thread
). We did want people to continue to enjoy the pairing in that FC that our attachment made us unable to leave.
We DID put up the v62 version, with Amy's lovely banner:It was deleted, along with the 2/3 pages of posts.
How is that "resigning", since we wanted to hold the second part of our give away (March 14th), since we have the calendars to share, and we'd still fangirl there - albeit much less?
Annie and I have been there since the beginning. Whatever people think, there is no one who was as attached to it as us. We do not seek fame (lol, over a FC, who does that?), we just wanted a nice place to discuss IchiRuki, fangirl with our friends, and make coherent posts. It just happened to grow beyond our expectations - mainly, I hope, because fans wanted a place where to discuss rationally, and where to fangirl when goodies were found.
We love to share what we find with fans, but what we don't like is fans acting spoiled, and creating troubles for us and for the Japanese fans who kindly share. This is why we have wishes when we post, and hope the fans can abide by the rules. To credit, not bother Kubo or the animators in twitter (is this truuuuuuuuuueeeeeeeeeeeee), this is just proper behaviour. Which is, we hope, not too much.
