CONGRATULATIONS! YOU WIN ONE MILLION DOLLARS!

...not really. You still have as much (or as little) money as when you clicked the link. Now back to what this post is supposed to be about...

 

I first joined CCZone back in November 2013, almost three years ago. Three years is a long time. Since then, I have changed. For the better, I hope, but that's besides the point. As I have changed, so have my interests.

 

One thing I have noticed, as I played through the CCLP4 voting packs, is that I'm not as patient with the game as I used to be. Also, I have hardly played any levels (besides these voting packs, and my own levels) recently. Another thing is that while I am near the top of the CCZone awards leaderboard, I don't think it matters anymore: it won't help go to college, or get a job.

 

Another thing I have noticed is how inactive CCZone has been recently. We rarely have more than 5 posts in a single day, and we frequently have none. I was talking this over with my best friend a few days ago, and she said: "what's the point of lounging around waiting for something to happen?"

 

Another thing is that real life is getting busier again, for several reasons, including the fact that I will participate in Nanowrimo again this year. CCZone just isn't one of my priorities anymore.

 

Long story short, I am leaving CCZone. Not immediately, but probably by the end of the year. But until then, there are a few things I want to finish. I want to bring C1059-CC2 to 149 levels, and continue my LPs (although I probably won't finish them), among other things.

 

Well, that's it for now. It was great while it lasted, but it will have to end soon.

So you're gonna leave before CCLP4 is out? That's a shame. I'm also extending JoshL6 to 149 levels that I hope to have done by the end of the year so you'll also miss out on that as well as some other CC2 updates maybe, if they ever happen.

 

CCZone has died down quite a bit yes but that's not really a good enough reason to just leave, unless it's temporary. No matter how dead this site is or how busy I will ever be, I will always come on every day just because I appreciate the game and love the community and vice versa.

 

Maybe if you got Skype and were added to the CCBBC Skype group you'll realize the community isn't as dead as you think.

To second what Josh said, the community is still active. Not only does a lot of discussion take place on Skype, but most people are busy with CCLP4 voting and so everything else to do with the game is on the backburner right now (and thus there's nothing really to post about).

 

On another note: if you're bored with both the CC Zone awards leaderboard and custom levels, you could always try your hand at the actual CC leaderboards for a new experience that you might enjoy :) (That also goes for you, whoever else ends up reading this comment. Yes, you! There's a reason people have been improving their CC scores for over 20 years: it's fun!)

I don't know if I would leave permanently or temporarily; this is something I will have to decide. I don't see real life getting less busy anytime soon, but hopefully I would still manage to come back for CCLP4, I would love to play it. However, I almost certainly won't be there for CCLP5, CC2LP2, or whatever the next official set ends up being.

 

A JoshL6 update would probably be very fun, but considering how busy I am, I might not necessarily be able to play it. I haven't made any significant progress in JCCLP2 since I last reviewed some levels...

 

I may check out the Skype group if time allows. How exactly do I join?

I have done a little optimizing of some easy official levels. I should report my scores...
