It is with many bittersweet feelings that we announce the official closing of Hazelstar Warriors. It has been an incredible seven years, and first and foremost, to all the members who have been here since the beginning, or the middle, or even just the past few months—I want to thank you.
You are what has made this site great all these years. Without all its talented, dedicated, wonderful members this site never could have been the fabulous community we made it into. There are so many of you who have put so much into this site, even when I was not around—from your writing to your friendship, and I am forever grateful to have been a part of that. I never could have imagined all of the people I would meet, and things I would learn through this site, and for that and so much more, I thank you :3 Also, if you see Silver, Feathy, Stormy, Rosey, Angel, Eclipse or Swifty around—please give them a giant internet hug and spray them with confetti because they are truly amazing and I couldn’t have done any of this without all their incredible help, patience, and dedication.
Making the decision to close the site was not an easy one; it was a decision I struggled with for quite some time. As many of you know, HSW has been my baby since 2010 when I created it as a bored little seventh grader, and I can assure you my 13 year old self never would have imagined in her wildest dreams that she would be writing this letter to 400 members from her college bedroom. However, the other admins and I have agreed that the time has come for us to lay Hazelstar Warriors to rest. HSW has had an amazing run, and it is time we honor that.
Now that the site is closed, the clan pages will no longer be available for roleplay. We are saving all of the material from the site, including old character lists. The staff has tried to preserve as much of the site as is possible and reasonable for old time’s sake. If there is something on the site you cannot find that you would like to keep, or if you have any questions, please let me know and I will make sure it gets to you.
This site will always be open for you to come visit. We will keep the guestbook open for members to chat, add memories and reminisce if you’re so inclined. You are all more than welcome to continue using the site to talk and keep in touch. If you want to stay in touch—send me a PM or email at [email protected] and I will happily give you my email or facebook or something of the sort.
Thank you so so so much <3
You’re all the best.
-Inglis & Staff
Former Staff: Swifty, Eclipse, Angel
They say that all good things must come to an end eventually, but that the next experience awaits. This is something I can relate to, and I hope that in the closing of Hazelstar Warriors, you will be able to as well. I cannot express how bittersweet this feels. I am so honored to have not only been a member of this site, or your Admin, but also apart of a family-like community. Everyone here was so welcoming when I joined, so happy for me when Rainytalon became leader, when I was promoted to Staff. Helping Inglis run HSW has been one of my best accomplishments in the roleplay world. It has given me so many experiences and skills that I have already taken with me into the rest of the world, and those things I will always carry with me.
I cannot thank you enough for having touched my life, each and every one of you. Bramble, Angel, Midnight, Eclipse, Ing, Feathy, Stormy, Rosey,Swifty, Spidey, Sugar, Shimmer, Innice- just to name a few. I could go on and list every account on the site, as every individual that came to the site brought me joy to meet and help!
When HSW closes, I will be leaving behind an entire childhood. I have been with Hazelstar Warriors since I was a pre-teen, and now I've recently turned twenty. There are so many memories I hold dear to my heart, with my characters and members alike. It feels impossible to say goodbye to all of it, and all of you, so what I will say is see you later. <3
If you wish to contact me personally, you can reach me by email [email protected] and I will always be welcome to messages to share memories or talk about the site!
Warmest regards, sending much luck, love and good vibes your way,
Dear Everyone at Hazelstar Warriors,
It breaks my heart to type this up, it broke my heart thinking that I had to write this. I can’t believe we are saying goodbye. For over five years all of you have made an impact on my life. I am honored to be a part of this site, and even more honored that I got to know every one of you. I consider you all my real friends and hope that we will run into each other sometimes. I loved all of our role-plays and conversations, the connections we made with our characters and each other. I remember feeling like you guys were like family, and people that I could always talk to. You all made me smile, and laugh. I remember when I first joined, I was such a noob. You have no idea how cringey I was XD I joined this site when I was 12 years old, I basically grew up role-playing with all of you. I am going to miss you guys, and I hope you all go on to live great lives and I hope you all still try to role-play somewhere from time to time. Just keep your imagination rolling. If anyone of you wishes to get a hold of me, please feel free to email me at [email protected] or skype me at stormybrobuscus. Remember that you all mean a lot to people, you all mean a lot to me. And always remember: Always look on the bright side of life🎵
I love you all,
