Change in the Air

On the 25th of Janurary 2002, LeeCHeSSS (otherwise known as Danny) put up Online-Roleplaying as a home for play-by-post RPG games. For seven years he has maintained it at his own expense - willing and glad - for us all. But nothing lasts forever and Danny has decided to retire from ownership of Orp and pass the torch on.

To me.

When is this going to happen? Well ... it already has. That is what the recent downtime was about. Online-Roleplaying has been moved to new hosting and I'm now in charge. I control the horizontal, I control the vertical. So what does this mean for you? Well I'm pleased to annouce a new feature:

Ads! There will be ads above your posts! Ads below your posts! Ads to the left! Ads to the right! And even ads VIAGRA WOWGOLD inserted within your post themselves. A golden age of spam on Orp is dawning, and we are the vanguard marching into this exciting new future.

I'm sad that I need to explain that the previous paragraph is a joke, but I do. Relax - there will be no ads on Orp. I won't be trying to make money from here. All I want it to be is a nice quiet corner of the internet for people to play RPGs. If everything goes according to plan, you won't even notice a difference between the new management and the old.

Still when do things ever go 100% to plan? We're bound to have one or two minor hiccups as we smooth out the transition, so I'm apologising in advanced and thanking you for your patience while we work them out. One thing is for sure, Orp will be sticking around and you are all welcome to remain a part of it.

Now everyone line up for your pixelated characters to battle with!

Clearly we need to make that pixelated battle characters thing a reality.

Also actually use the chat room.

Also pie.

Ross and Tim have always been superb in their admin duties when the site was still technically mine. They have been making the calls for the past months if not the past year. I hope everyone will stay with ORP to get their daily roleplaying fix.

Aww, bye Danny. You were a lovely host, I must say. Cheers from a fellow ORPer who has appreciated your services for longer than it seems.

Yes, awesome job Danny. You have created a fantastic spot on the 'net.

And congrats to itches, who is already doing a fine job.

Well, if you told me you were drowning I would not lend a hand. I've seen your face before my friend, but I don't know if you know who I am. Well, I was there and I saw what you did. I saw it with my own two eyes. So you can wipe off the grin, I know where you've been. Its all been a pack of lies.

He's not hosting anymore, but I don't think he's dying. Feels like a funeral in here.

Yeah, this thread is meant to be about me, not Danny. Stop living in the past!

I for one welcome our new itchy overlord!

...yeah yeah I realize I'm months late to this thread, sod off. Big thanks to Danny for making this place possible, it's much cozier than most other PbP hosting alternatives, and the price is unbeatable

The secret to making a forum cozy is the brown. Little known fact.

That makes an absurd amount of sense. Could be the sleep deprivation talking, mind you...

Actually, I greatly prefer the light font against a dark background. Against the Shadow uses a similarly aesthetically pleasing tactic.

I like it too.
Nice that it's not straight white on black - very easy to read.

The site design itself is nifty too.

I have only been a slave of ORP for just over three years, shorter than some - longer than most, but... I can say that I am of an institutionalized mind set because of the core group of people here than any other element of the site.

The brown does work though, as already pointed out.

We could do with some pie though.

And pixelated characters...

Hurray for itches though!

And I hope you'll stick around Leechess!
