[QUOTE=Polygon]Why would we need the founders of the old club (as nice as that little web page was)? Or a host for that matter? RPG Classics has given us webspace. It’s linked off the main page, although devoid of content, which I was trying to solve. If we really want a SaGa series community, we should be able to use what we’re given before looking for more. It’s easy to find a webhost for a few documents, but very hard to find it for a community-level site. RPGClassics gave us our own forum and a “Shrine” style webpage. So I think we would want to capitalize on that if we were really serious about building something./QUOTE]
Okay, first of all, I don’t know if you’re aware of this or not, but I’m STAFF at RPGClassics It’s my fault that we’re even here. Lemme give you the brief history of this community:
The community was founded by sfsakana, and perhaps others, on an online community site called communityzero.net. Eventually, there was a panic because it was going to become a paysite, and everyone wondered what they were gonna do with the community. Me, having a right to one subsite as a staffer, offered my space to the community; the plan was that I was going to recieve all the original content, make the mods of the board the corresponding mods of the community, and give them the password to the subsite.
What wound UP happening was,
I have to change the community content to match RPGC format standards, which is a pain in the ass for me cos I’m already bad at html, and I do a lot of “real life” stuff.
I could have made a sample page and showed the founders or whoever else, but no dice; sfsakana e-mailed me back after like, a YEAR, and DragonFlare dissapeared off the face of the earth.
Since then, I’ve lost the original content and don’t know anyone that has it (Saint Ajora might still have it, but I don’t even know, heh)
- I’ve found no one willing to rebuild the damn community.
I’m not sure why you think I said we needed a host when we already have one, courtesy of ME. The problem is, I don’t have the time to make this site happen anymore, but i have no one to pass the torch to, so the site is just stuck in limbo until someone does. When that person is found, I’ve got an entire subsite space waiting for them.
