There's so much going on that I'm going to separate this into sections:
Where are we going to have our chat channel?
Kayla's tracked down CantingAway! The character is now off Tutorial Island and so that chat channel is available to use. Kayla has also used our Runehead list to add in as many people as possible. All of the generals are generals (including myself, no benign dictatorship here!); while everyone else has a silver star. Thank you for your hard work there, cariad fi. On the downside, we're still up against the issue of not enough room on the friends list. Kayla estimates that 98% of the list have been added, before she ran out. This is more than I can get on, but means that we're still short and have no room to add future members.
Zach's reserved Cantaway, as a potential extra channel. I've reserved Canting cc.
However, the results of the poll, held last week, indicate that 76% of people wish to remain at Merch Gwyar, despite the shortfall in ranks. In conversations inside the Canting, people who have no silver star, nor hope of ever getting one, have said that they're fine with this. They're happy to remain as such, until Jagex make good on their promise to separate friends and clan list, thus hopefully giving us more spaces to add them in.
With much love to Kayla, Zach and all those who have busily been trying to track down alternative chat channels, I'm going to go with the vote. For the foreseeable future, Canting Away will be found by entering my chat channel: Merch Gwyar.
What's happening with the Triumvirate?
67% of voters want us to join the Triumvirate, therefore I am poised to do so. However, Full Gangsta has left me a message saying that he urgently needs to speak with me before I take Canting into that. I'm going to hold off until I've heard what Full Gangsta has to say. As I have no idea what that is, I'll have to get back to you on this. If it's something significant enough to give us pause about entering, then I'll blog about it and we'll have another vote. If not, then I'll take us into the event.
What else is happening?
There's obviously the Summer Festival coming up, with still a lot of slots to fill, if anyone wants to lead us in something. It doesn't have to be grand. Take us all on a farming run, if you like! Click the banner at the foot of this blog for more details.
Then we have Rafftank and Krazy Karl5 working really hard to create a Canting Away forum! You can check that out here. Thank you very much both! I've registered there, but I can't keep up with the forums that I'm currently on, so I can't promise to be around all the time. Rafftank knew this, but was keen to create one anyway; and, as I've always said, I am not Canting Away. Canting Away is Canting Away. :lol: I'll put a link to this forum on the Canting noticeboard, on the left-hand side of my blog.
