Hi everyone,

As some of you may have noticed, I have been missing from the site for a few weeks. I have been dealing with one thing after another, including multiple illnesses, so with that plus my new full-time job I haven't been able to work on the site as much as normal. I have recently received medical treatment for my latest illness so I've been able to hop on here today for the first time in a while!

Here's the status of things on the site:

  • Pattern Approvals: There were almost 500 in the queue when I logged on today - yikes! I am going through and approving as many as I can. Due to the large size of the backlog I am not doing my usual thorough checks, so some patterns may be approved which should not have been, e.g. duplicates. If you notice any, comment on the pattern or send me a message and I will deal with them.
  • Photo / Comment Approvals: These are now up to date
  • Pattern Maker: I have not worked on the pattern maker in quite a while, but I hope to resume work on this within the next week or two.
  • General website enquiries: I have missed some of the general website enquiries and support questions so I will be going through those and trying to catch up on any that are still relevant/valid.

Thank you for your patience heart bounce

@GayAsHell666: That may not have been intended to be rude but it was VERY rude . I have posted on the site several times explaining the situation, that I am NOT giving up on the website but have been severely ill and unable to maintain it. Thanks to those of you who have repeated my comments to explain to people, I appreciate it. I have recently begun to receive medical treatment, so hopefully I can start maintaining the site again soon... in fact I am starting to comb through the backlog this weekend, so slowly you will see more and more activity. I am also considering the possibility of having someone else help maintain the site.

Because there are so many patterns in the backlog, when I do start approving them (and especially if I automate some of the process, which I will have to) it's very likely that some patterns will get through which are copied or duplicates, if that's the case then I will trust on the members to report them to me.

In the meantime, the LAST thing I need is rude people like you placing added pressure on me, when I am struggling as it is. Comments like that, they DO make me want to give up on the website. I love this website and its community and will always do everything I can for it.

@VickysKandiShoppe: Thank you for the good vibes!

I hope that you're feeling better soon! I am so thankful for this wonderful website that you've created for us to design our patterns and learn how to make kandi! I would probably be lost without this website, and thanks to your website I've learned how to make so many awesome things!

Just know that I'll be sending positive vibes your way!

Hey so this isn't meant to be rude but I feel like if you've given up on this website you should tell us so we can find a new one. I'm only saying that because I'm tired of my patterns sitting in the back doing nothing and seeing the same posts on everything else.

Hello Crumpet!

Hope you'll get well soon! I don't think anyone minds the delay in pattern-approval, but I think if it's too much work for you, you should maybe recruit someone who can help you and make your work easier. ^_^

Anyway, I'm personally very thankful for all your hard work, and I think I speak for the behalf of everyone on the site when I say so!
