Hiatus 2

Once again, interest in other games has dragged me away from Creatures for a while. I don't know when I'll get around to finishing all my projects - probably around 2 weeks or so. Note that this doesn't mean that I'll be absent from the community - I'll still be around. I just won't be contributing anything, which includes posts here.

On a slightly more distressing note, the name change not only failed to keep the bad traffic away, but the bad site is currently the one contributing the most traffic when it comes to links (as far as whole sites go, Creatures Caves is thankfully in the lead by a significant margin). I'm wondering if the name had anything to do with why such sites were linking here in the first place. Do any other bloggers have issues like this, or am I just unlucky?


  1. I'm a bit the same. Taken up Oblivion a week or so ago (got it for like $10 off Steam) and haven't been playing anything else. What game has grabbed your interest this time?

    It's possible people are still being linked to your blog because the place they've been coming from hasn't updated their links. Give it a couple of weeks and see if things don't improve.

  2. I'm the same as well, (Diablo 3 just came out, aha).

    I think the issue is that search engines, (such as Google) are still displaying the old title of your blog. If I look up "Creatures" and the old title, it shows up with the old name, and the links still lead to here, despite the name change.
