Is it happening in a particular thread or link?

Lmao. I think the images weren’t loading last night. Hopefully that was just a fluke on my end / browser / settings.

I was never around long enough to contribute very much, but I just love this place. I would have had never-ending tears to come back and find it gone forever. Thank you, Juan and Staff, for doing what you do to keep Aelyria alive.

I keep thinking I'm going to have time at some point to sink my heart and soul into a new character. Starting one up for the 30-year anniversary feels like a goal to aspire to! I don't wanna do J'ly without Pala. ♥

I know you have trusted staff to help with back-end things but if there comes a need for volunteers to help with migrating information, correcting links, or tedious things that only someone who adores Aelyria would be willing to do for no pay, I would help.

I dare say there would be a few souls who would be willing to share the load. I spend more of my spare time here than I'd like to admit!

I'm chuckling, I had the urge to click on the non-existent like or heart button for your post, Moss.

Yes, I imagine if it were needed there would be more than enough volunteers. And well, you can't do Aelyria very well unless you do spend a whole lotta spare time here!

I'm going to lurk and check out who Moss is when I get back from some errands.

I've taken the liberty of moving this thread from "General" to "News" to help with visibility, and now that we've passed the 2-year anniversary of the apocalypse, figured I'd provide a postmortem of Aelyria's death for the curious - for whoever you are, stumbling upon this thread.

tl;dr Kaelon isn't fixing anything, nobody else has the ability to do anything about it, we pretty much all just got sick of it and stopped. For those who want to socialize, we have a Discord server where some people still hang out.

To put it simply, there haven't been any updates since Kaelon's last posts in this thread. Scroll up, you can read them and everything.

Many links are still broken. There's CSS/formatting that previously worked that now throw errors, so some threads are inaccessible. The wiki is in shambles. Anti-spam measures no longer work (which is why you'll often see lots of spambot posts everywhere - I'm manually deleting most of them). Lots of quality of life measures no longer work. The site is broken.

Nobody's willing to put up with that and so activity eventually just petered out. Anything you still see is pretty much people just messing around doing whatever.

Has anybody been in contact with Kaelon?

Sure, numerous people. We'd ask how things were going. We'd ask if he had any updates. We'd ask if he needed any help. We'd ask if he was willing to let others assist.

He'd provide vague promises of providing future updates (which never came, as you can see) and eventually just start ignoring people. It hasn't worked out.

But he's still more than happy to take your companionship money, which is one of the few things that does work, funnily enough.

Can anybody else do anything?

Nope! Kaelon holds the keys to the castle and there's literally nothing we can do unless he allows it.

Is the fix that difficult? Could anybody else do anything?

Probably not! Therefore, probably yes! Based on what little information that we have been provided, analysis suggests that the solution is actually likely very easy and straightforward! If your followup question is "then why hasn't there been a solution" then feel free to ponder the unfathomable thoughts of Kaelon's mind all you want.

Is there... you know, a successor?

No. There's plenty to say about why it didn't happen, but there's nowhere to 'go' and continue this story. Feel free to pop into our Discord server and reminisce a bit, though.

Here's to "30+ years." Etch that onto the tombstone.

----------
Some more answers added after the fact, based on questions asked after this post went up.

Has anybody reached out to Kaelon about perhaps buying the rights to Aelyria?

Sure! See "Has anybody been in contact with Kaelon?" above for a gist of how that went.

What's wrong with him?

Ha! Who knows?

Thanks for the post mortem, Indef.

Sorry to see Aelyria go down like this.

A shame.

The end of an era.
