    Re: New Vindicators Academy of Europe (OOC - Full)

    I am very much so for continuing this game with anyone who wants to continue. The question is... what avenue do we want to pursue? We can set up shot in another forum--seems like rpg.net is the winner right now--but there's also the notion of creating our own forum... Mostly, I'm just tried of having to move every so often. :-p rpg.net is probably going to be insanely stable, so... maybe I'm just being paranoid.
    No, I'm feeling very similar to the way you are. So it's not just you.

    I ran across a handful of forums with a google search. However, I wasn't able to get to any of them from work due to firewall issues. I have no idea if any of them are better suited to our needs than the others. I see some weird things about the culture at RPG.net but I'd like to think that would stay out of an individual game thread.

    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've looked at both RPGnet & the Proboards, nothing really in depth as I spent 95% of my time last night making sure I had EVERYTHING I wanted to from my threads saved on my PC, and I'm leaning towards the Proboards but I will admit that is more because it looks to be a place I can do all of the same things I can here (have a roll call as well as a place to play games).

    I won't lie however that the idea of setting up something for ourselves does sound very interesting, that said I have ZERO technical ability. Though I do have a bit of cash that could be donated to help set up such a thing if we were to pursue that option or help in whatever way possible.

    It's always infuriated me that someone is squatting on oubliette.com. There is this temptation to just... create our own domain. Toss on a wiki section, plop in some forums... It just seems so incredibly... egotistical, but sadly it's seeming like a necessity given that this is our second move.

    I have registered on rpg.net and I'm finding that there are some restrictions on new members. Mostly, the whole newbies can't link thing... I'm not sure how that would apply to an image, but...

    When I first arrived, I saw Kreuzritter's post about this and someone saying how these boards are less argumentative than theirs. O_O

    It's unfortunate that the behavior of a few people has ruined it for so many others and I hope Green Ronin may still yet reconsider but I'm not optimistic.
    Oh, my giddy aunt... You drink some Nyquil, pass out for half of a day, and the world turns to crap...

    Okay, first order of business is going to be shooting everyone some contact information. Second step is going to be backing up everything, lest we not be able to access the posts here like we can on the ATT.

    well, I haven't found another RPG forum site that isn't blocked from my workplace yet. So that's going to suck.

    Yeah, the loss of the boards will be tragic, but I'm willing to relocate just about anywhere.

    To quote Psistrike from my Skype group discussing this:

    "ProBoards as an option, unlimited membership, unlimited threads, free hosting. It is used by Misfit Studios and the creators of the SUPERS! The Comic Book RPG for their forums."

    Two examples:
    http://superscbr.proboards.com/
    http://misfitstudios.freeforums.net/

    It sounds like the thing for the Oubliverse with its story threads, IC threads, OOC threads, roll calls and setting stuff.

    I'm honestly in disbelief over the whole thing, apparently I didn't know just how bad the problem was.

    RPGnet doesn't look horrible, as far as a place to play but I haven't given it more than a 2 minute look over. But I do agree that we should find somewhere else to continue this game!

    I just have no search-fu skill.

    Also, I went and copied everything from the settings thread into one big text file, so it's preserved for however our escape route will be. Some of us are plotting setting up a new forums for the community.

    So, we should probably start talking about where we go next.

    After literally three seconds of looking I found this: https://forum.rpg.net/
    No idea if it's a good spot or not.
    Anybody else have suggestions?

    That being said I'd rather not post it for the web crawlers to spam the dickens out of me.
