Just a few things!

First things first, apparently the rumour mill somehow activated and started spreading that all the Creepypasta websites were closing down. I’m really not sure who started that rumour or where it’s being spread, but as far as I’m aware it has no merit. I’d already stated that I wasn’t shutting down, just taking a break from posting new stories – both out of respect for the victim and out of concern for the authors. While the incident attracted plenty of people who were merely concerned or checking out what the whole Slenderman panic was about, it also brought in a LOT of trolls who were attempting to leave really obscene, nasty comments on pretty much whichever story they happened to land on first. It wasn’t even attacking only me – it was also targeting the authors specifically. I was worried that, while the story was still in the news cycle and some outlets were still attempting to attach Creepypasta to various stories both new and old, posting any new stories would result in an inordinate amount of harassment directed at the authors.

Things seem to have calmed down well enough, and stories will resume on July 1st. The reason for the slight delay is that so any authors who may have changed their mind about wanting their work featured here will have time to reply and let me know before their stories go live. Same goes for any authors who want their credit link altered for the same reason (this applies to authors new and old, by the way – if anyone has followed your credit link in order to bother you, feel free to reply to your acceptance email and let me know if you want the credit changed/removed).

Authors who have been accepted for the main site or who are slated for Crappypasta postings will receive their emails within the next week or so if they haven’t already.

The book club and summer giveaway will also start in July. There is no change to the expected submission period dates.

I also want to congratulate the Narrators u-NIGHTed project for raising over $8000! Awesome job, guys.

If you need something to do during this last bit of downtime because you’ve already read every single pasta here, may I suggest Games Done Quick? It’s a fun video game stream project for a good cause, and since so many of you seem to be fans of Let’s Plays and the like, you guys might enjoy this. Here’s the basic rundown:

Games Done Quick is a bi-annual charity gaming marathon. Volunteers play games at incredible speed (“Speedrunning”) for entertainment. The event is streamed live online, non-stop, and all donations go directly to the charity Doctors Without Borders. This is the summer event, with a winter event every January (“Awesome Games Done Quick”).

Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) delivers emergency medical care to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, natural disaster, or exclusion from healthcare in more than 65 countries.

The streams will also feature incentives and prizes. You can see their FAQ here, as it does an excellent job of answering most common questions. For a schedule of the games and when they’re streaming, here is the schedule. For a detailed look at the prizes and incentives and donations, you should go here.

Visit the official Twitter account here.

I’m embedding their Twitch stream/chat below, but if it’s not working for you for any reason, here is a direct link to their Twitch page.

Twitch chat rules apply even if you’re accessing from this widget:
Please be respectful of everyone and treat them equally. We don’t tolerate prejudice around here.
While twitch emotes are cool, gigantic walls of them, ascii emotes, and walls of text are not.
No porn/spam links and url shorteners like tinyurl.
Be a cool person and you should be fine.

Enjoy the streams and thank you for your patience!
