The Krystal Lovers Association forum and site have officially announced they are permanently shuttering, for good this time, on March 16, 2018. Yes, they did announce doing it before years ago, but apparently they only delayed what has been deemed inevitable. Current forum/site owner "eggman9713" largely lost faith and interest in the Star Fox series, and believes message boards are a dying breed of community interaction anyway. It does not help that Krystal's character has not made a significant appearance in a Star Fox title since 2006's Star Fox Command. Looks like the end of an era for yet another piece of fandom community among Star Fox enthusiasts online.
What do you guys think of this situation?
I want to start a Krystal support team so I thought I'd pitch the idea here.
Me and a bunch of other people on Twitter have started a group in hopes to unify as many Krystal fans as possible, because I've realized that there are SO many Krystal supporters online but they are so scattered and quiet. I think it's important for us to be all commenting together about support for Krystal and 'liking' each other's comments on Youtube/Facebook (extremely important because it means Nintendo themselves WILL see it)
I think on Nintendo's official Youtube and Facebook pages are the best places to do these "unified comments", if they continue to see the support for her (and Star Fox Assault, because it signifies not only Krystal's inclusion but also the actual potential for growth the SF series has) then they may take our support into consideration when making a new SF game!
I wanted to see if anyone on here wanted to be involved with us actively commenting/liking Krystal related posts on YouTube.
I can update this thread with links of videos we'll be targeting for this "unified support" It will really help with our cause and if you are a Krystal supporter then this is a really efficient way of showing that support/increasing her odds of returning to the series in general!
Please let me know if any of you are interested!

Despite the fact we are all anticipating the official anime short Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins later today, by sheer chance a French-based, start-up animation director duo called "Channy and Kimberly" have just uploaded their very first animation on YouTube today, which happen to be a fan animation of a potential Star Fox Zero anime opening made in homage to the 1980s style. Check out the fan animation below - no regrets!
Subscribe to the duo if you like as well, as they really need more people to follow their brand new YouTube channel!
Since around 2010, I’ve been developing a fanmade animated series based around the unreleased video game Dinosaur Planet.
Most of you guys probably know about Dinosaur Planet and how it transitioned to Star Fox Adventures. If not, Dinosaur Planet was a game that was developed by Rareware and Nintendo and was supposed to be the Nintendo 64's swansong before Rare went on to developing next-gen titles on the Gamecube. The original project was soon rebranded into a Star Fox title after Nintendo saw similarities between DP protagonist Sabre and Star Fox's own Fox McCloud. Dinosaur Planet became a Gamecube title now known as Star Fox Adventures, with many differences besides the setting and cast changes. Nearly 1/2 of DP's original content was cut in the transition, and the new storyline of Starfox Adventures became a plothole ridden mess. Shortly after SFA's release, Rareware was purchased by Microsoft, spelling the end of Rare and Nintendo's partnership to this day.
Despite these events, the story of what would've been Rareware's last and greatest game on Nintendo 64 has not been forgotten. Even after many years, gamers and beta enthusiasts continued to look into the mysteries surrounding Dinosaur Planet and its transition into SFA. Now me and my team are here to pay tribute to one of the greatest lost Nintendo 64 games of all time.
The story of Dinosaur Planet follows two characters who must save a planet in peril. Along their journey they face many challenges, such as an evil reptilian tyrant, a destructive dragon, the mysterious Quan Ata Lachu, and many more.
We have planned out a total of 13 episodes. We currently have four of the episodes written out, but right now we are in the need of a new head writer, as our previous one had to leave due to unfortunate situations she needed to take care of. We are also in need of more animators. We have about 5 animators so far, but we are still looking for more who are skilled in either traditional or computer animation. The animation we plan for the series will be mostly traditional animation, mixed with minor CG bits used to enhance a few scenes. As for voice actors, we pretty much have most of the entire cast selected, but we are still in need of a few more minor roles.
As of right now, we have no budget for this project since we are trying to work around the copyright issues with Nintendo. Because of this, the work is mainly volunteering until further notice.
Below is an animated clip of the upcoming teaser trailer we plan to release later this Spring.

PS: I wasn't quite sure which section of the forum this topic fitted in since I wanted to include the link to the project's website and some of the rules are a bit confusing for me.
