The downfall of Marapets.
I think once the money really started coming in, Ian started to get lazy - which is why most of their updates that are coming out, are in regards to their AUs, its ridiculous, and we all wonder why their user's online has decreased over 100% in the past few years. I remember the days when Mara used to have over 2,000 members online at a time, now it doesn't even past 600-800 users online.
@Waylon Then you're definitely the funnest of them all.
It's sad a registration question kept you away for so long x_x I like you already!
Maynard: I think most of us grew up in a pretty sterile environment. A
lot of that stuff just wasn't around. It's all pretty much peaches and
cream . . . flowers . . . everything's nice, ignore all the bad stuff.
And the world's just not like that. And I think that the sooner people
get to the point where they realize that the ugly stuff is just as
important as the beautiful stuff - it goes hand in hand, I think that
we can get on with evolving. -The Tool Page: Articles
I just read it, and I agree 100% with it, along with a few of the quotes.
I haven't seen Marapets get over 800 users online in forever. I think Ian needs to get some new admin. I've only seen Shaggy on, Indy left awhile back and Middy left a month or so ago. I don't know if it was temporary or not, but they aren't there now so Ian needs to step up. And the new artist, now that Laimey left, or however you spell her name, the art has gone up and down. The Dark Fairy pets need to be re-done, because they aren't even close to the sites style.
@Gabby, Haha, thank you! I'm just glad I joined now!

The new artist is @NiGHTS, and someone else, but I'm not sure what their username is.
@cpvr, A content manager is exactly what he needs, and would have no problem getting one if he tried, But that's the problem, he won't freaking try! I personally think he's gone off an gotten a life, which is okay but he needs to keep it updated.
@cpvr, I think his ego is to big. I wish he would hire you, at least it shows he's trying. Maybe Mara will get more active.
@cpvr, I hope you do get hired. I would think he has an admin panel, considering the management "help the owners run the site behind the scenes as well as fulfilling the same role as an Admin. They are responsible for the site in the owner's absence. "
