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
, or LiveJournal
to save back-ups of any creative work you do here.
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!
