[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,

Everyone at ofuro, otsuuuuuu!!

I am sad to hear that ofurotaimu will be closing but that's understandable and I hope everyone will continue to stay connected :) Ofurotaimu has been the start of many things for me - I have met a lot of great people and made friends who I talk to (probably more than my IRL friends) and ofuro has pretty much been like a home for me even if I wasn't always active in participating on this site ww

Thank you Nikki for extending your greetings to me when I first got into the utattemita fandom, without you and everyone else from ofuro these past few years would not have been much fun (or I would have possibly turned out less of a neet /w\). Thank you Nikki for your crack and your awesome leadership (in corrupting everyone in the ofuro), we didn't manage to dominate the world with ofurotaimu international offkais but it was still fun!

Thank you Stephie, Len and Tune for everything you've done too! Hope to continue flailing about everything with you guys on twitter/plurk from now on too hehehe.

Wishing everyone all the best with life and your other fandoms :D
