[MOD] Closing.

[community profile] ofurotaimu
(2009 - 2014)

Hello. It's been a while since I posted an update in this community, and I feel bad that it is going to be a sad one.

Since its opening in 2009, [community profile] ofurotaimu has gained a lot of readers and followers, which in turn helped us meet a lot of people with the same interests in Vocaloid, utattemita, odottemita, and the general Nico Nico Douga community. We've witnessed a lot of firsts in the NND community (the first virtual concert, the first daikaigi, the first nnd movie, etc.) and even though there were only a few people updating this community, we're glad to have been part of the fandom.

However, as much as we'd like to continue with our usual posts and updates, the moderators of this community have grown busy--both in real life and in other fandoms--and thus find it difficult to find ample time to update. I personally had a lot of hiatuses these past couple of years due to work and other factors, and Stephie will be pursuing her own career soon. With a lot of things to take into consideration, we decided that we will close [community profile] ofurotaimu. The comm will not be deleted, so everyone can still browse previous posts, but it will not be updated anymore.

Even though the dreamwidth community is closed, the ofurotaimu twitter and tumblr accounts will remain open. [personal profile] stephieku will continue posting updates, schedules, and information in the ofuro twitter while [personal profile] seraphictune will continue updating the utattemita tumblr. Both accounts are easier to manage, although the updates won't be as frequent as before, too. We hope you would continue following us in the said accounts even though this community is closed.

That said, thank you so much for following this community until now. I'd also like to thank the comm's moderators--Stephie, Len, and Tune. I feel bad that it has come to this point. But even though [community profile] ofurotaimu closes, we will all remain connected with our love for Vocaloid and utattemita. This is not the end, right :).

Thank you,

Ah let's see... I guess it's always sad to see yet another community I'm in are closing in, especially because being in ofurotaimu has given me so many things like new friends and knowledge over nnd itself

I joined for like... 4 years (?) Already?! And during those years I've met a lot of amazing people in the community and it feels like, being in here has been such a blessing for me. I started from knowing nothing about nnd and its feature from here I am and to be frank if I haven't found ofurotaimu I probably will never got into the nnd fandom (esp vocaloid) as much as it is now :')
Though my contribution in this community is pretty low, and I never really met any of the mods irl (although I wished I ever had the chances too someday w) I really glad I've met you guys! I hope even with the community closing down we can still talk on other media sometime. I've been helping with news update after I offer myself to help and I did enjoy doing it, although I'm sad that I can't help much anymore due to my irl issues lately but thank you for giving me the chances to help the mods (stephie esp maybe w) to update ofurotaimu each time

I have never expected to said this right now but, thank you for being a part of my life and even though the community is closing in I still hope to talk with everyone else in here on the future! Thank you ofurotaimu community for giving such a wonderful color to my life!

(I typed this on phone and I must admit... My finger feels like dying rn wwwwwww)
