Summary of EraEdit

Era 7. A time of novelty and experiments. But also, of loss and other sad...emotional...stuff.

MafiaManiac was thriving, right on the heels of the successful Glitch Mafia. This era saw several different games that were unusual. Who could forget plasmid's hilariously chatoic KaTSWiLM, or my failure Game of Detectives? As Maniacs got comfortable with the game, we began to innovate new ideas. Then disaster struck. I, like many other faithful Denizens, automatically opened up BrainDen. But something was wrong - the forum was down! rookie1ja, the admin of BrainDen, later explained that the site servers had experienced a disk problem, and a lot of files were lost. It took several months to recover some data, and even then some of BrainDen's history was lost forever. What did that mean for Mafia? Well, BrainDen was always MafiaManiac's main source of fresh blood. With our parent site down. MafiaManiac newbie traffic slowed down considerably. This affected the speed and overall interest in Mafia. While hybrids still did well, there was a significant increase in the amount of time it took for a game's signups to last. The Fall of Brainden affected both sites considerably, even after the former had once again opened for business. Hundreds of accounts were lost, and as the site fell into obscurity general traffic decreased as well.

However, when I look back on it, halfway through an Era later, I see Era 7 as a dry spell - a spot of depression in the site's history. And I don't resent that; every civilization, cyber or otherwise, has its ups and downs. The period before the fall has definitely become a memory - the population of wonderful people just won't be the same again; but as a new Era spawns, so does a new community. New friends, new rivals, it's like Pokemon every few seasons. Now we can only hope to attract some of the original crowd, but if they don't return, it's all right. I enjoyed their company, their wisdom, and I hope that they did too. Now, a new generation comes in to restore us to our glory.
