Happy Birthday, Scarth!

Over the years, Scarth has been a great asset to our RPG community not to mention just a fun member to converse and play games with. He’s one year older today, so I just wanted to give a shout out hoping he’s not only enjoying his birthday but to wish him a great upcoming year.

So, Happy Birthday, Scarth!

New Future Imperfect RPG!

Once again just making an announcement that there’s a reboot of Future Imperfect: New Era. Especially now with the site and forums up for the RPG. For those unaware it is an all Gundam RPG with some SRW options. Currently suit reservations are open as well as various polls on how the RPG will be run. Staff spots are also open for writers and updaters. The RPG is scheduled to launch by the end of the month. The appropriate Meridia Island pages have been updated to reflect this (The future and present RPG pages hadn’t been updated in an embarrassingly long time). The working title for the RPG is Future Imperfect: New Era -HD Remix-. Suggest a cooler name for the RPG here! Have some mad photo-editing skills?Enter into the banner contest here!

In other news I’ve completed updates of WordPress and phpBB for Meridia Island. Also, with the chat becoming more active, I’m looking into starting up weekly chat stats again. We haven’t had any IRC stats since 2011!

Back in October of 2015, Marcus uploaded some miscellaneous files from past RPGs. It’s a pretty big list. Take a look here at all his hard work.

Happy Belated Canada Day and Independence Day otherwise!

July 5th update @11:33am : The RPG is now called Future Imperfect: Rising Storm as the timeline has been advanced.

Help Thorpants brainstorm for a new Gundam RPG!

So I’ve been busy archiving more websites that still need to be archived. While that is underway Thorpants wants to open a new Gundam RPG and would like help in seeing it to fruition.

He’s opened up a Google Drive folder to help in brainstorming for it and would like it running in the next few months.

So all you people wishing for an RPG like in the ole days get your workin’ and thinkin’ caps on.

As always, the chat is a great place to come together to talk about it as well. And here is a forum thread for discussing it.

Forums have been updated

Alrighty!

The forums have been upgraded to the latest phpBB version and we have lost user integration with WordPress. However, BBCode finally works again. This is what most people, including myself, agreed was best.

Updating Site and forums

Things may be offline for the next day or so while I get things up to date.

[Edit is below]

The website is up-to-date. The forums, however, are rather out-of-date. I have been using a plugin called WP-United that has successfully integrated the WordPress accounts and the phpBB3 accounts for the forums. This means if you log into the forums, you’re also logged into the site and vice versa. The same goes for registering an account. With WP-United, if you’re registered in WordPress, you’re automatically registered on the forums.

The issue is that the forums are on phpBB 3.0.14 and the latest version of phpBB is 3.1.5. The forums are so out of date, we can’t even use BB code. It’s just no longer supported. In order to update to the latest version of phpBB (3.1.5), we’ll have to say goodbye to WP-United and the user integration it offers us as WP-United does not work with phpBB 3.1.

Other plugins that can replace WP-United either are very poorly supported and may not work or require payment for up to $40 a year. Seeing as Meridia Island is not very active, I cannot justify this especially with the regular domain and hosting costs that I am already paying.

 

Here are the options we have:

  • Lose user integration to have full phpBB forum support OR
  • Lose full phpBB forum support to have user integration.

 

I will be making a decision soon after some input from the community.

See you all there.

I liiive. Also Minecraft.

Anywho. Now that my insides appear to be more-or-less working again.

Boss-lady and Scarth and allegedly at least one other have discussed possibility of making a dedicated Server/Realm in Minecraft for #RPG.

Minecraft Realms service seems simple and cheap, but has an unfortunate limitation of:
1) No mods.
2) 20 max members, 10 max online at once.
https://minecraft.net/realms

Have been looking at alternatives as well.
Example:
https://mcprohosting.com/

Anyone have thoughts?
If we launch this, anyone willing to play?

Vacuous update

It’s been months since a first page post.

We haven’t had anything happening so there have been no announcements to make.

There are no RPGs running although there is talk from a few people about possibly starting a few RPGs. There isn’t much hope of anything running really soon due to essentially everyone being busy with their lives (this also means it’s been a really long time since I’ve put any work into beefing up this site as much as I’d like). That said, the community is still alive in chat (IRC) and the Facebook groups started by the After Era and especially the MSG Wars community lines are still active.

This site will remain open for the foreseeable future and if there is anything noteworthy to report it will be posted here by myself or any of the other officers.

Stay safe, I hope the Americans have had a nice Turkey Day, that everyone who engaged in Black Friday and Cyber Monday got some sweet deals and that everyone is looking forward to a nice and relaxing holiday season among friends and families.
