Server Updates
Server updates are underway.  Services such as Teamspeak will continue to be offline until this process is complete.

Update:  System updates are now complete.  Voice services should now be back online.  Other services such as TribesRPG will periodically go offline as they too are updated.

Just Saying Hello
I haven't had anything to post in a while regarding PCRPG, but I did want to check in and say greetings to all of you who still occasionally log in to play or check the website out of nostalgia.  I suspect I am not alone in that.  As always, I plan to continue hosting so long as people are interested, be that 2020 or 2030.  There is an upper limit on that of course as dictated by my lifespan.  heh  Carry on.

For those of you feeling particularly nostalgic, you might have forgotten that we have a mirror of the original TRPG forums from right before they were cleared in 2001.  Check it out if it has been a while:

PCRPG Version 3.48 Released
This is a minor update to PCRPG.  New is the inclusion of a periodic bot-off-map check.  When bots are discovered off the map, they are killed so that bots can again spawn in the zones they are from.  No loot will be dropped nor experience gained.

As a reminder, intentionally bashing bots off the map is considered a violation of the server rules regarding zone hoarding and may result in punishment.

Updates Complete
Last night's update cycle completed successfully.  It took about two hours which was longer than predicted, but everything is back up now.

I'm thinking about making a predictable weekly maintenance window so that downtime doesn't need to be announced and can also be scheduled around if someone plans to be doing something important at that time.

Anyone Still Use Ventrilo?
On a final note, I'd like to pose a question:  Does anybody still use the Ventrilo server?  Ventrilo seems to have fallen out of fashion with gamers due to better alternatives like TeamSpeak 3, Discord, and others.  If nobody still uses it, I may discontinue the PCRPG Ventrilo server.

The Forums Have Entered Archive Mode
I have put the forums into archive mode.  It's not an official functional mode of the forum software, but in effect it means that new user registration is no longer possible and users have lost the ability to post or modify information that is on the board.  Users may still log in and view their profile, messages, and any other normally available resources.

The forums have not been popular for the better part of a decade, so this is primarily a move aimed at two goals.  This will reduce the administrative attention required by moderating user registrations.  It will also prepare the forums for their move to a new web host in the coming months.  The forums will be left online for the foreseeable future, so no worries there.  I want them to remain available as a historical reference point.

It is possible that the forums will be reopened for new content at some point, but it seems that it is no longer a place used for communication by our community and thus is unlikely.

If you need support for services including voice, hosting, or the PCRPG game server please do not hesitate to use the contact form available from the Support navigation menu item.

Don't worry though.  The PCRPG network isn't going anywhere.

Server Upgrades Incoming
I have acquired the necessary disks to do a major storage system upgrade on Aoede (the community server).  It will be going from eight 147 GB 15K disks to eight or maybe twelve 450 GB 15K disks.  The extra space should relieve some pressure that has been felt in recent months as new services have been desired.  If the chassis is upgraded from an 8-bay to a 12-bay (which will determine if the server gets 8 or 12 disks), we'll also have the benefit of fixing a backplane issue that has precluded the use of channel 7 on our current system.

This will likely occur before the end of the year, so there will be some down time coming up.  I'll be sure to announce a more specific window when the time gets nearer.

Website Move
Some downtime is expected this weekend due to a web server move.  The main PCRPG site, forum, and related resources are going to move to a new web host.  Our time with Dreamhost has been mostly positive, but it's time to move on.

Game Server Downtime
The TRPG game server will be offline briefly for a database instance move within the next few days.  Downtime should be minimal.
