SERVERS OVERHAUL CURRENTLY UNDERWAY - PLEASE CHECK BACK IN 24-72 HOURS - THANK YOU

This site is undergoing a complete overhaul. Please check back in 24-72 hours. Thank you for your patience. RPG (Role-Playing Game) Research is an ongoing long-term series of projects that include studies on the therapeutic and educational aspects of role-playing games, with additional emphasis on determining any causality related to participation in role-playing gaming. This research includes tracking any other projects around the world that use role-playing games as educational or therapeutic intervention modalities.

If you are seeing this page, it means you are seeing the transition web server.

We are completely replacing the physical servers, and using much newer software which requires a lot of manual copy/paste to move the content from the old server to the new one. If you are seeing this page, we have not yet had a chance to move the content from the old server to this new server. This upgrade affects 26 different communities, and a multitude of sub-communities. Please check back in a day or two. I am very sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

All services are impacted: DNS (Domain Name Services), Webpages, Plone, Forum, Chat, E-Mail, Audio Streaming, Monitoring services, traffic reporting, downloads, etc.

For Techies:

We are completely overhauling the servers and all websites and related services will be impacted.

Old server: Asus 2-core CPU, 8 GB ram, dual SATA software RAID1 mirror array. Plone 4.2, with legacy code back to 2.5.5.

New server: Dell, 2x 6 core (12 cores), 16 GB RAM (upgradeable to much more), full hardware RAID5+. Plone 4.3.6 with no legacy code.

Due to all the problems and bugs introduced since 2004 from legacy code. To have a completely clean start, this whole process requires manually downloading and uploading and/or copying and pasting tens of thousands of content items between all the sites (26 difference communities). As this is all run by one person (though there are some volunteers helping within the context of some specific community sites), this will be a lengthy process before complete transition is complete. If there were an easier way to clean up all the legacy issues, it would be done, but at this point it is critical to get it all cleaned up.

Thank you.
