See the previous journal for my explanation for closure:
The time has come to close shop. Sorry some submissions expired before I got to them, but what wasn't expired has been submitted for one last time.
I still don't know whether to keep this group up or deactivate it altogether. I know I said I'd keep it up, but seeing the icon on my profile is going to haunt me so we'll see.
If you're sad about the closure, I'd recommend as a good starting point if you're looking for another group similar to this.
Thank you for 6 years of support and take good care of your OCs
