Well this came across my inbox and I thought I would share this with you guys.

Crow-Een 2K10 is not going to happen this year. There is several reasons why Crow-Een 2k10 will not be taking place this year. Some of those reasons include the lack of interest and participation, and the time needed to run the contest and promote it. We still encourage you to dress up as your favorite Crow character this Halloween and submit your photo to the Fan Gallery. We plan on bringing back Crow-Een next year and hopefully we will be able to revamp the contest as well.
On a personal note from the author:
I’ve been very busy this year with raising my son who just turned a year old on August 3rd. So any free time I’ve had to work on this site, I’ve been focusing on the development of CrowFans.com version 5. I promise CrowFans.com V5 will not as long to develop as it took Axl Rose to come out with Chinese Democracy. Thanks for your support of this site; I hope to be able to show off CrowFans.com version 5 in the near future.
TheCrow.com is back online finally after nearly 2 years of downtime.
Crow-Een is currently 50% judged, just waiting on the other two judges to finish up.
CrowFans.com Version 5 development has slowed down a lot due to me being a dad. One of the changes pending for CrowFans.com version 5 will probably launch ahead of version 5.
The news section has been fixed finally. Sorry it took so long and I should really practice what I preach. Always backup before making changes or upgrading.

Crow-Een 2K9 is now online at http://www.croween.com.
The annual crow costume contest is back for another year. This year we’ve decided to change things up a bit with different prizes, judges, and an earlier entry process. Crow-Een is about bringing crow fans together around the world and offering every fan an opportunity to visibly show their love for The Crow.
We hope with an earlier entry process it will give fans the opportunity to have more time to prepare their costume and give them a greater window of opportunity to dress up. For those fans planning on dressing up as The Crow, please read the rules and scoring system page before entering. For those fans without access to a digital camera we will accept snail mail entries. The entry deadline this year is November 30th.
With this year’s contest we felt it was time to shake things up as much as we can on the judges front. TheCrowTV will serve only as a tie breaker judge. MoonMistress from The Crow: Chamberoom is the only judge from previous contests. This year we welcome three new judges Draven666 and SilverUnicorn from The Tides of Sin Discussion Board. The fourth judge is Phr0st the founder of CrowFans.com and the former webmaster of TheAvenger.
While it is a contest, it’s not just about winning. Well it might be about winning for some of you! Typically we are able to secure crow merchandise as prizes, this year we have been unable to. So the winner this year will get a 50 dollar gift certificate to Amazon.com, the second place winner has a choice between the 25 dollar gift certificate to Amazon.com or The Crow: Stairway To Heaven DVD Box Set. The third place winner will receive the prize the second place winner didn’t select.
Crow-Een 2K9 judges will be announced this weekend. I’m still figuring out the prize situation.
CrowFans V5 is progressing along and some ideas are being tested out. One of the things I’d like to see accomplished with the new version of CF is more mobile friendly content. Currently our news section can be accessed via mobile browser. I’m curious to what you guys would like to see in the next version of CrowFans? If you suggestions contact me.
Well right now CrowFans V5 development is being delayed for a little bit. It’s still being worked on but the progress is going to be slow. Working and taking care of a newborn has taken a lot of time out of my life. Once I finalize the layout and design of the site I will decide on whether to integrate The Crow’s Loft into CrowFans.com. I’m leaning heavily towards the integration.
Soon I’m going to start laying the groundwork for CrowFans.com Version 5 since I have some time before my son is born. I’d imagine that this will probably be the last major overhaul of the site for years or for good.
Some things I’m looking at is integrating The Crow’s Loft into CrowFans.com, switching forum software, and tighter integration between software that runs the site, and more mobile access. I hope to have a preview of the site in the coming weeks. If you have any suggestions feel free to contact me.
Yes I know the news section looks funky right now I’m trying to fix it.
I’m going to be a daddy. My boy is due is on August 11th and his name will be Joshua Dwayne. The name came from my two grandfathers names and the wish of my mother to use the name Dwayne if I had a boy.
I’ve created a website for my boy at http://joshuadwayne.thecrowsloft.com/ .
Besides nothing really going in the crow world, hopefully this will explain the lack of updates.
