Dear readers, dear friends

After talking among ourselves, with Rick, and PZ, we, the Affinity writers Charly, voyager and Giliell have decided to continue the blog as a joint endeavour.

Affinity was always about community, about bringing people together, about sharing our lives, our highs and lows, and we decided that we do not want to lose the community, but to continue and keep it alive, in Caine’s memory as well as her spirit.

Of course, we do not want to continue as if nothing had happened. The blog will change. Not only does none of us have the time that Caine could invest thanks to being a professional artist, more importantly, none of us can replace her and we will not even try. Some regular features will remain, others will change or be replaced. TNET will continue as a place to hang out and chit chat. Also, the blog has always lived off the contributions of its readers, be it your pictures or projects and we absolutely want to continue this. Affinity shall remain a place for all.

To me personally, this is home and I would love to share it with all of you.

    I was hoping this would happen, glad it’s been agreed on. I feel that Caine would have liked the blog to live on. Now we just need a new submissions link on the sidebar.

    Cheers all.

    I’m very glad to hear this news. It is just amazing the community that Caine built and while I’ve been missing her fiercely, i’ve also really missed the rest of you.

    Thank you. I’m a relatively newcomer to Affinity, but it was obvious how much effort Caine put into building and nurturing this community. Keeping it alive sounds like the right thing to do. Even though her absence still hurts so much… it will take a while before I can look at the blog banner without tearing up. :(
