As some of you may know, I, as well as Infinity and Yellow Duck, am part of the newspaper staff. Sadly however, I am not as active as I used to be and do not foresee having much time to write articles. So, if anyone has an article they have written or even a piece they would like to share (Maybe an original short story or poem, maybe even a comic strip) feel free to send it to me on Baytown (#25894)! If I think it's well written and a good topic I will post it here in the news feed! Just be sure the content is appropriate for all ages we may find here on SDN, keep the language clean, and try to make sure it is easy to read and mostly gramatically correct at least. If I see "u" instead of "you" I will very likely not post it as well. I will also credit you all of course for every submission you contribute.
Also, I'd like it to be known that there may be a chance I may upgrade one member's account as a holiday gift for a loyal active member! I'll update on this at a later date, right now though I need to know if anyone is active and has been. I'm sure very few people check the forums anymore, but I do know there are still members out there! So let me know if you are here! Just reply here, and feel free to introduce yourself if you are not an active forum goer!

Server Downtime November 9th
This is a heads up that SDN will be down on November 9th for some server maintenance. I have had repeated reports of the game running slowly since the server change so I will be upgrading software on our new server to try and speed things up. I don't expect the downtime to last more than 24 hours.

Server Down Tomorrow
The server will be down tomorrow from 8pm EST to around midnight EST so we can transition to our new one. Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.

Hey guys, so as you probably already know, I'm on the newspaper staff. But since I've had a busy week with school and stuff I haven't been able to think of an article idea. So, I decided to make this a "get to know me" kind of article. To start off, my real name is Marina, and I'm 15. I live in NYC in Queens and go to high school in Manhattan. I'm in 10th grade and I'm taking AP World History, Algebra 2/Trig., AP Chemistry, English 10, Spanish 5/6 (level 3)and I'm on the newspaper staff at my school. I have 2 baby Red-Ear Slider turtles and they are explained more in Daywind's forum. I have a younger sister named Ana and we share a room. I'm Serbian and can read and speak it. My dad is giving me driving lessons every Sunday. I have a house in Liberty, which is in upstate NY. There we have a lot of land we have a dirt bike and ATVs that I drive. I competed in dance for 11 years and I won 6 trophies and 17 medals. I like to dress casually and I absolutely love colorful socks. I love horror movies and I love to draw and sketch (most of my sketchbook is made up of wolves). I also recently started painting on canvas and those came out pretty nicely. I love to make my friends laugh and (not to brag or anything) my friends will probably tell you that I'm really funny, weird, and random. I don't have a real job but I do community service for my school (I need 60hrs in order to graduate). I'm realistic, reasonable, and I love to eat (yet I don't gain any weight, I actually have a flat stomach...it baffles me). Well, this got a little too in depth but that's mainly it. If you have any more questions, I'll be more than happy to answer them for you.
