It has been approximately ONE YEAR (Happy Birthday!) since Orrden had kicked off his ownership of RPGC after investing his own personal funds to purchase the site. Since then it has been a crazy, intense, funny, amazing journey!
One great change that I have seen under his leadership has not only been the great increase in activity but the great increase in support within the community. We have ran three successful fundraisers to date, and have established a great system to help us cater to the sudden influx of newer and younger users! So thank you Orrden, for being an amazing leader. The fruits of what you have personally contributed are all around you. I remember you telling me during the first few months that you weren't sure if RPGC would really produce that much activity ever again, but here we are! I bet you can't even keep track of all the active threads anymore like you used to be able to!
To celebrate, we have three new layouts for our members! I would like to introduce the Cute series - Peach Kiss, Sweet Pea, and Pink Pastry. We have so many male/unisex layouts, that we thought it would be fun to have a few cutesy ones too! (You can find them in bottom left drop-down menu)
Hey guys! Just letting you know that last night, Orrden & I got a very awesome email!

I encourage you ALL to join and follow this cause. As always, RPGC exists to bring Roleplaying in all form to the masses, regardless of where that roleplay is located. Spread the love and the talent. Thank you.

The new year hit, a the site itself has seen a huge increase in traffic and an even larger increase in Site Rank.
December, we were rated in the 3 millions as far as site rank goes. For our size and our skill, that was, sadly, exceedingly low. Yet, everyone pulled together. We voted, we recommended, we referenced: and we grew.
From the shadows of inactivity we have risen and grown. We have taken into our flock new blood and they have helped us to heal and grow. Our veins are thick with life and sustainable. Creativity is king again and sits justly upon his throne.
I thank you, young and old, new and veteran for sticking it out.
To the new:
You have come when we needed you, helped rebuild what was becoming ruins in the sand. You've helped to clean our temples and restore our altars. Our torches burn with new oil and our power grows. You are our future and you prove that every day.
To the old:
You have stuck with us through the ages, giving us your devotion and heralding our glory even as the sun set. But behold the fruit of your perseverance: The sun is risen and the air is hot with magic and muse. Take the new under your wing and help them to grow, for they are the future as well as you are. They have potential, they have shown it and continue to show it each and every day.
From the owner and admin of this site:
I thank you for restoring my belief that this place could be more than what I had ever dreamed it could be. It was always a haven for me, always a home: now I see it as a sanctuary for us all. Let us built this tower higher, let us built our city wider, let us relish in the fruits of our harvest.
So now I have turned my computer into a starbound server. It'll be up and running almost indefinitely. If you want in on it, just let me know and I'll give you the IP address for the server. Lets get out there and start building!
