Role-Playing Game Research - Pardon the Dust - We're Scrambling to Move Servers, Content, and Fix Breaks

We are frantically moving to our brand new servers and daily moving content as fast as our volunteer staff can accomplish. Thank you for your patience and support.

Not only are we still performing massive work on the new RPG Community Center, we have also made a huge switch for our websites from Plone CMS to Odoo ERP to ERPNext on a brand new server.This will make everything better in the long run, but the transition is rough.

Unfortunately these are not compatible platforms, so we cannot easily bulk export/import the content, we have to manually copy/paste and cleanup the content from our old servers to the new one.

Our volunteers are working on this daily as fast as we can.

During the interim you will find a lot missing (404 error) pages, or pages with no content yet, or partial content with no formatting ,or broken formatting.

We're going as fast as we can to fix this, but we're talking about thousands of pages of content, so please bear with us through this huge task.

If you are interested in helping with this task, please swing by our Volunteer Page and let us know you are interested.

Please note that right now, due to insurance restrictions, we can only accept new volunteers that reside in Washington State.

We need more donations to get the more expensive insurance that will let us go back to our previous national and international volunteer team.

Thank you again for your amazing support, we appreciate your patience during this transition.
