    My first concern is whether or not flynn and Shock can see it at work. After that, what's everyone's thoughts on this one?
    Fair enough, I'd say 50/50 odds right now.

    I'm at home now so I won't be able to check it until Monday. I can get to Proboards at work so that's a big plus on its side.

    That said I'd be fine with what you're talking about, but I'd like to share something I've come across that might solve our problem - http://www.echoesofthemultiverse.com/index.php.

    I've already joined (same name & all to boot!) and will likely be posting my setting stuff (the all new, all original one that is) there as well as moving my game over there. So if everyone likes the set up there I'm obviously fine with it, or if the group would like to consider the other options I'm fine with that too. I'm flexible like that.

    Well, I'm willing to go along with whatever the decision is. Unfortunately, having moved from amateur to semi-pro in the world of comic books, my time is at a premium. I can't game all that much and I can't do too much moderating because of the work I'm doing for myself and other creators on DA (I'm working on a 16 page illustrated comicbook right now involving characters from 13 different creators, including me). Between the work I want to do and the work I have to do to pay the bills, my ability to contribute is limited...but I'll pitch in however I can.

    That being said, the Proboards thing looks intriguing and just from my cursory searches, that would be my first choice.

    I know a guy who'd act as a Mod that I can personally vouch for, if that would help.

    Exactly. Arkrite emailed me a link where someone was doing a similar thing. I didn't post it because... I don't know if they're really wanting it advertised. I can see it being a bit more taxing to open the doors to anyone and everyone, but... so long as you don't appoint any mods who'll be abusive? A decent support structure could make it work.

    I'd have absolutely no problem with opening it to anyone who wants to be there. I meant that I didn't expect there to be as big of a community there as there is here. Here, we have people talking about stuff in the sidekick lounge--what they're reading or watching...

    Okay... No decisions made yet, but I want to try and make this as comfortable for everyone as I can. Right now, we're looking at two options. I've gone ahead and created a forum at ProBoards just so we can kind of get a feel for things. So, let's figure up what direction we want to go in...

    RPG.net
    +Stability; this place has been around for a long while and doesn't seem to be going anywhere
    +Seems to work for people at work
    -Apparently, the community is more volatile than this place, but that may not touch us in our own little corner
    -Not as spacious; it doesn't accommodate threads like Settings or Roll Call
    -Limitations on edits

    ProBoards
    +Stability
    +Self-Policing; we'd basically be modding ourselves
    +Can make our own sections; I've already played with the controls and made sections for Settings, Game Room, Roll Call...
    +Can expand it if we like it; if we choose to go here, it's not costly to remove the ads/get a domain the redirects to this
    -Lack of community; if it's primarily our gaming group, there's that lack of community

    What other options do we have on the table? What are the points for or against each one? Also, Shock and flynn... can you view the vanity forums at work?

    Anyone have any experience with other sites? That Proboards thing that Enigmatic One mentioned looks like it might be promising.

    I'm reasonably tech savvy so I'd be willing to help out with any setup that might be needed as my free time permits.

    I'm in the same boat.
