Welcome to WyrmrestAccord.org!

Welcome back to the community site of WyrmrestAccord.net -- at www.wyrmrestaccord.org! Here is a brief list of what's changed and what has not, as well as the answers to some questions you may have about the community's new home! 

What's Different?
  • New administration team: Samanthiel, Mariius
  • New hosting 
  • New domain name: www.wyrmrestaccord.org
What's Not Different?
  • Site features, content and layout
  • The community and moderator team
  • Site structure and policies
What's Changing in the Future?
  • Official retitling: WyrmrestAccord.net will become WyrmrestAccord.org, WrA.net will become WrA.org.
  • A new color scheme and graphics; a new 'livery' of sorts for the community site
What Will Not Change?
  • Your ability to access your content
  • Access to WrA.net 1.0 Archives
  • WrA.org's Drupal current layout and set-up; at least, not for a while.
  • The site's features, rules, and policies
---
Why Did WrA.net Go Down?
The administration handed off the site to new hands. One of the new hands then had to relocate across the country, and thus it delayed getting the site to a temporary host (as servers were packed up and put on moving trucks). Thus, there was some downtime. We apologize!  
 
Why Did We Change to WrA.org from WrA.net?
Domain transfer issues. The domain for WyrmrestAccord.net was locked due to standard security policies by the host, and the admins wanted to bring the site back up sooner for the community's sake rather than wait 60+ days. The admins chose to 'go with the flow' and just re-title the site at a new domain name. We wanted the site back up, because the site means a lot to the RP community. 
 
Will the Site Go Back to WrA.net?
No. We intend to carry on as WrA.org (rawr-org, anyone?) from here on out. 
 
Will the New Administration Team Bring ___ Feature to the Site?
Hopefully! We have a big long to-do list of potential updates, but we don't plan to tackle them for another month or two. If there's a forum feature you would like to see in the future, please write it down and keep it on hand, as we hope to have some site improvement discussions in the future!
 
Is WrA.org Going to Go Down After Time?
It is the primary commitment of the administration to keep this site afloat and -- at the very least, accessible -- from here on out. There will be one brief downtime in the future in which the site will move to new private hosting, but it will likely not last more than a day. However: the administration would like to encourage EVERYONE who uses the site to do the safe thing and back-up everything you put on here. Or on ANY site, for that matter. We know that everyone puts significant emotional and personal investment in their creative work -- thus, we STRONGLY encourage you make multiple back-ups of your work and not rely on WrA.org as your ONLY location for your work. We advise you use sites like Tumblr, Google Docs, WordPress, Blogspot, or LiveJournal to save back-ups of any creative work you do here. 
 

PLEASE NOTE:

I would like to extend all my gratitude and thanks to Itarater, Evanlysis, and Mariius for helping me get WrA.org/WrA.net back up. 

Thank you all for your patience, and, once again -- welcome back!

ADMIN ADDENDUM

SOME STUFF IS BROKEN RIGHT NOW

  • UPDATE 6/27 10:55 PM SERVER TIME: Private Messages should be fixed!
  • UPDATE 6/27 10:55 PM SERVER TIME: the automated mail message is fixed!
  • UPDATE 6/28 5:30 AM SERVER TIME: The WrA.net 1.0 archive is now functional again! You can access it at archive.wyrmrestaccord.org
  • The search feature probably will not work for a day or two -- it is a Google Custom Search Engine (CSE) that must be indexed by Google, and it hasn't indexed the new domain yet. 
  • If you put links to pages on the site in your posts, they are probably broken right now. Anything you posted that re-directs to a specific 'wyrmrestaccord.net' address is probably not going to show up. You can manually edit these and we encourage you to do so, but a filter is being written to make all links root-relative. Making your links root-relative (instead of "wyrmrestaccord.org/insert_linktopage_here", make it just "insert_linktopage_here" in the link feature in the post editor) will solve this problem from here on out.
  • You will probably see some mentions or spot-notes referring to WyrmrestAccord.net. We're still going through and transitioning all the language over to WyrmrestAccord.org, and we hope to have it all done with the new layout. :) 

THERE IS STILL A LIMIT TO THREE BLOG POSTS PER DAY

  • The site has been down for roughly a month, so there's lots of things you wanted to post! Please do not post more than three blog posts a day.
  • Remember that all blog post rules still apply.

Thank you so much to all of you for working so hard on this, it's really incredible how you guys stepped forward to pick things up and you were all so on top of the updates and nice and alsdhfkjh all of my love.

A huge thank you also to Ita and Evan for working on the site and fostering the community for so long. <3 Basically as long as I can remember, Evan was a fixture of Wranet, and just a plain sweet person. I never got to know Ita really, but I know he did a ton of work that wasn't always recognized, including by me. Hugs and love to both of them, and best of luck!
