Bringing in a quick update regarding this whole situation!
Firstly, I apologize for not authorizing everyone who asked that in the previous journal - I realized that there were some chars set to authorized only that should have been actually private, but going through all of my chars to find them and correct that would give me extra work on top of editing the rest of them ^^'
Thus, I have changed the plans, and I will not authorize anyone anymore. I will be focusing on updating the watermarks and permissions of my chars, so I can put them back to "logged in users" visibility bit by bit. I have currently done so with all of my Articularias, and hope to finish my Candyflosses in the following days too. After them, I plan on updating the rest of my CS characters from species I am active on. Once these are finished, I will probably slow down with the non-CS chars, but I hope to update some of them in small batches here and there.
Thanks everyone for the patience, and if you have any group of chars of mine you would like to see visible again sooner, just let me know!
