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  I want them to remain available as a historical reference point.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.

Services Online
Most if not all pcrpg.org services should be back online.  Sorry for the downtime, but it was unfortunately unavoidable due to a series of problems with the old server.  The up side is that the server has been upgraded with faster processors, faster hard drives, faster (and more reliable) RAID controller, redundant network connections, and redundant power supplies.

Server Downtime
The community server has been offline since Monday and it looks as if it will continue to be for at least a few days.  A number of technical failures have caused this current state, but they will be resolved.

The main thing people will notice is that TeamSpeak is temporarily unavailable.

PCRPG Server Back Online
The disk situation has been repaired to the point where non-critical virtual machines may again be run.  The PCRPG TRPG server should be online in a few minutes.  Sorry for the downtime, but such things are occasionally unavoidable.

Tribes RPG Offline Temporarily
The PCRPG TRPG server will be offline until later tonight due to disk failure.  I'll post when it is back up.

Server Back Online
The server is online again after what I assume was an extended period of downtime.  Generally speaking, I only occasionally notice when the server goes down because I stop getting Tribes crash alert emails which normally come every few days.

If you happen to notice the server is offline, feel free to message or email me.  Chances are good that I simply don't know and it's easily fixed.
