Is there a newer version of this site?

Hi, just wanted to check with you guys,

Site seems a bit slow, cannot delete log entries ( always say "character can't be referenced") all in all seems like this site is not really taken care of. Plus some forums have not been active for a few weeks while we are in one of the most exciting time in game, the launch of a xpac.

So, have the rpers moved elsewhere?

 

Thanks

Chiming in to confirm at least one thing: Yes, this site is pretty dead.

No, I don't know of another primary gathering spot for WrA roleplayers. I've personally moved on to Tumblr.

A place in particular in Tumblr? Not very knowledgeable about it!

 

Thanks in advance

There is not a "newer version" of this site as far as I'm aware, and as Voidcrow mentioned, a lot of us have moved on to Tumblr. Tumblr is a blogging platform, which means you're going to have to follow users and build your own network. I'd recommend checking out the maintained thread on this site, WrA RP Inspo Blog Roll and select a few. I've had to weed out a few users due to constant drama reblogging/stirring or pushing political issues, but during the past 2+ years I've been using it, I've made a number of good RP contacts where we share writing and arrange for in-game RP. Good luck.

Hey guys!

Samanthiel (the site administrator) and I have talked this over some before, and this is probably a good place to bring the results of that up publicly. I apologize for not responding to this sooner — school has been very hectic this semester.

Unfortunately, I’m unable to address the technical issues of site speed or log accessibility. Technology is not my forte. If there are specific entries that you’d like deleted, however, shoot me a PM and I’d be happy to unpublish them for you.

 

RE: Activity.

It’s no secret that the site’s slowed down a lot, and that many older players have moved on to other things. That’s part of the growth cycle of any community. I spoke to Sam about her thoughts on the site’s direction moving forward, and she and I agree that while WrA.org is a great archive, we feel some ambivalence towards attempting to reignite its community aspects. 

A great deal of community organization and event word-of-mouth happens via Tumblr these days, and while we’re by no means opposed to a resurgence of WrA.org’s activity, we don’t think that especially likely; the site is less necessary than it was in the days of WrA.net. 

Samanthiel will continue site administration, and I’ll keep clearing out spambots. The site will stay afloat, but we’ve chosen to not actively promote it at this time. 

There are always some advantages to a central community site over a wide-open platform like Tumblr -- to that end, you might be interested in RP Crossroads: A relatively new, multi-server RP hub with many of WrA.org's same features. I took a quick look over it a while back, and they seem like some good folks.

If you’ve got any questions regarding the future of WrA.org, or how to get started on Tumblr, please let me know! I’m no longer active in the WoW RP community, but I can try to point you towards some good places to look.
