[foodsex] mod post!  
HI EVERYONE. 7 months later! ughhhh, my extreme guilt has finally gotten to me, and I've decided I really need to give a heads up on what's going on.

So, needless to say this community isn't exactly active. It never was in the first place, and a lot of ideas fell through for activities and things we could do. Also I'm coming to the realization that there are other Massu communities, some that are dead and some that essentially do the same things as us, and a few that even came after us and kind of took ideas I had.. But anyway, that's not the point.

I don't want this community to die! I don't contribute to fandom but Massu is still important to me and I like having a community for him, so I'm going to do my best to get this place back into shape.

I'm still going to post images. I liked doing the themes but I really need more people to participate. Also, even though there are other "daily" communities, not everyone posts the same thing so that helps a little. I'm also going to be posting graphics a bit more often, since I've decided to stop making icons, but I do feel compelled to make Massu graphics most of the time and I'll probably post them here. I can't translate. There is already a community with lots of video files, but if I see something I can share I'll try to do that as well.

If you guys have any ideas, I'd be more than happy to hear and consider them. You've been really patient, every time I check the profile and see there's still 170+ members it amazes me that you all stuck around, despite how dead it is here. I'm going to put up a new stylesheet/header when my summer break comes around in a few weeks. Hopefully by then I'll have more ideas. It's hard not to feel like we're in competition with other communities, but some are dead and others did get here first, so I have to make the most of it.

See what's nice about massu_alliance is that I don't see it as a community that requires constant updates. I've always seen it as a place where you guys kind of "store" Massu files and videos, which to me is really nice. But I TOTALLY see where you are coming from. In this case I don't think I'd want to give up the comm to someone else, I'd much rather let it die.

But even though there are other Massu comms, I don't want to give up mine. I like contributing even if it's a little bit.

I think with his bday coming up saturday, it'd be a good time for a Massu spam post, or something.

I agree with this! I'm thinking of doing that too. I tend to do that every year for his birthday but I can't pass up the chance :D It's not like I have any other ideas except maybe trying to make icons or something, ROFL.

I'm making an epic Massu-spam post, mostly cause I'm trying to convince my friend that Massu has sex appeal, but there'll be pictures and videos and etc etc.
If you want to, you can link my epic Massu post here, that way everyone can enjoy him :D

Also, I think you should do more theme sets! I like the ones with his arms, twas nice...you could do like, shirtless, smile, hair...etc etc.

fjeiofdjk OK. I know I probably won't do videos because sadly I don't have that many anymore, but I'll try to do picspam and graphics. Just lmk when you put it up and I'll link to it :D

I PLAN TO! I want to change the layout first before I post anything else, but I'll probably be doing that sometime next week (...but after the birthday post.)

I've made a playlist on youtube of about 30ish videos, plus some other vids I've found...like Massu in a pikachu costume XD
Will do!

Sweeet, I can't wait. ♥

It's here.

Cool! I'll probably do mine tonight or early tomorrow, but I'll definitely link to it. Thank you much ♥

People will be celebrating tomorrow too, even though it's technically the 4th in Tokyo. Hell, people will probably be celebrating til Shige's birthday next week, lolz.

No problem :D
