Whether or not you played up until the very end or dropped off somewhere in the middle, I’d really appreciate your feedback so please give this post a read, thanks!
So here’s the deal, Everything Islands has to come to a conclusion because it is required to for the course. Naturally, this is a bit of an awkward project to “end” because it is entirely personally goal-oriented, and it seems strange to then measure the worth of everyone’s actions in a single story-driven finale. While I’m not claiming this is the best, or the ideal way to end the project, nor am I claiming that its last while has been successful even in the slightest, I certainly think bringing the project to a close is more satisfying/rewarding than none, so this is what I’m proposing.
Below is a simple survey, a couple of questions I’m asking you about the project so that I may present these ideas in the final presentation of the project. I’d appreciate it if you’d fill it out, don’t be shy, I know all of you enjoy writing to some extent and it’d really help me out! Answer all or some of the questions, really just whatever you feel like, man.
Regardless of whether or not you feel like filling out the survey, this is where you make your final stand. Your bucket list of Everything Islands. In addition to this post, there will be another post updated with a bit of story; A bunch of brainstorming in regards to the end of Everything Islands, and what I want you to do is post how you see the end unfolding for your character. It’s kind of like a super turn; Do whatever you would as per normal, but feel free to be incredibly liberal with your actions, since your character has theoretically a week or two of “concluding” to get accomplished. In typical Everything Islands fashion, I was respond to these endings in one final story update sometime this week, I’m shooting for Wednesday/Thursday but Friday wouldn’t be out of the question.
In addition to this makeshift conclusion, after the formal showing of this project on the 6th, the site will continue to receive some of the following content just for your support and involvement with the project.

– The spreadsheet that was used to track everything along the way.
– An Everything Islands particpant exclusive AMA (Ask Me Anything)

– Finished map, so you can fondly look back on it
