"We grow, because we struggle. As we learn, we overcome. We all look back and know exactly why it had to happen when it happened."
Hello everyone! I am happy to announce our detailed release of Project Tranquility with you guys! This has been passionately in discussion for some time now and we are beyond grateful to be able to share it with you all and be able to have you all involved with new beginnings for Wolfhome
We get it...Wolfhome for many of you has left scars and heavy feelings; We are thinking of all of you that were affected. There has been so many things that needed to be implemented or discussed that was never able to be discussed properly before, and we believe that time is now, we are truly wanting to move forward and grow from the burnt grounds of Wolfhome and rising within the ashes with new life, new ideas, new sense of comfort and positivity. Wolfhome is important to us, we spend heaps of time trying to come up with new ways to make sure all of you are safe and feel beyond welcomed, as you all are deeply cared for and adored by the administrative team. You are what matters most here and we WANT to make this place grow into something beautiful and inviting. We, on the administrative team are truly sorry that this is way overdue in the eyes of some of you that were deeply hurt by the events that transpired during the shutdown of Wolfhome; it should have never came down to that ever, but I am hoping that some of you (especially those that were present during that time) give us a chance to show you all that we all want the best for Wolfhome and we all just want to have a place where you all can come and feel welcome, make friends, share interests and much more. We want to show you that you will have a voice here, you are apart of Wolfhome, you matter to us and that you make us whole. You will never have to worry about being silenced again.
With that being said, we on the administrative team are happy to release a ton of new things and ideas for Wolfhome; Project Tranquility!
As always we are more than happy to hear any and all suggestions and positive constructive criticism for this project, as it is a work in progress and we want you to know your ideas are always wanted!
We realize that Project Tranquility is coming much later than it was needed but we hope with it being a top priority for us that you all will stay and trust the passion we are putting forth into this. We really needed to take the time and think about what truly was the purpose of Wolfhome moving forward from such a traumatizing and detrimental set of events that took place with the shutdown. What was our vision for the future? What was Wolfhome's values exactly? We are hoping that this project answers all of the questions that were asked and more. We are seeking a strong presence within our community with more collaborative meetings, events, and rule making, and many more ways for all of us to be involved and build this site together. In doing so, we are also looking to streamline how the Administration works in it's efficiency with handling problem tickets, reports, and bans. We also are really trying to uphold ourselves as an Administrative team to stay organized, keep up with the things we plan to discuss and not make such a lengthy list of tasks for ourselves. As we look further into making the necessary adjustments to the Administration Team, we are also going to continue to remain transparent in everything that we're able to.
Our goals go above and beyond and we really hope you stick around or continue watching on the sidelines and see and feel the progress we are wanting to put forth into this site. We are actively pushing for a tranquil, peaceful, inviting site for you all to enjoy yourselves and make amazing connections with here. We sincerely hope to continue to build these goals and stick with them and continue looking forward and never backwards.
Our progress with Transparency
Our transparency is new, it is still being worked on and discussed for new ways we can be transparent anytime something arises or if someone has a suggestion for it. So far, we are really proud of how much we have implemented and our goal is to continue pushing out new things and ways for you all to be comfortable with what we are doing and have trust for us. We are always going to push for transparency and continue to grow and build onto this as time goes on. We thank our friends over at Baetyl for inspiring us to implement this.
