Season One of EVOKE is over, but the EVOKE Network lives on.

For the time being, the EVOKE Network is going into dark mode, but there are still many things you can do on the site. You will still be able to read the graphic novel, comment on evidence (if you are already a member of the network), power vote evidence, work on quests, update your status, send messages to other members, and more. What you won’t be able to do is add new blog posts, photos, or videos to urgentevoke.com. You also won’t be able to invite new agents to join the Network.

COMING SOON: You WILL BE ABLE TO continue to work on missions. I will update this blog post with information about how to continue your progress through the crash-course.

To everyone who signed up, read the graphic novel, and completed even one mission or quest, thank you. Your work will be preserved at urgentevoke.com for others to see.

To everyone who successfully completed the crash-course, I salute you. To everyone who submitted EVOKATIONS, your work and your ideas are deeply inspiring.

But there will be more. The story of the EVOKE Network is far from over, and the work of changing the world has just begun.

See you in 2011 for Season Two.

    During the online chat a while back, they confirmed that there would be printable certificates for us.

    So if you actually put the effort into doing the missions well, you’ll be certified, and be able to print a piece of paper that says so, if it’s important to you.

    Yes, when do we receive our certificates?
