Living Connections:November 2021 Newsletter The connections we have in life vary greatly in many ways, from friendships and family, loved one’s and partners. No matter where, who, what, when, why, or how, these connections can mean everything to us - found families, polyamorus relationships, queer platonic relationships, the people who care for us and those we care about. Be they a mother, a neighbor, or just a kind stranger. Not every connection is perfect and some are certainly healthy...
Hey All, So over the past few days, we've had several maintenance periods that began after the data center fire in Utah, which you could read about here. Some of the things we've done since then have been the following: Return to the Utah data center once they managed to correct the situation and recover our server which has been moved to a new part of the facility. One of the things that have made us resilient over the last decade+ is the fact that we take backups of the site regularly...
If you are here, this means you have clicked on the alert to find out more about the rule update specifically for Omegaverse/ABO. We have officially forbidden this genre from RpNation; This decision wasn't made hastily and we want to be clear that we are forbidding this genre because at its core and focus it is an erotic genre. We know there are those who are interested in the social dynamics of this genre, but the problem is that we cannot clearly determine between someone using the...
You and your friends had decided to head out one afternoon to finally investigate rumors you heard of an old abandoned mansion in the woods. According to the crude map the mansion would be an hour walk from the edge of the thick forest. It was only two in the afternoon so there was plenty of time before dark. To pass the time you all start talking about what you may find there. One of your friends suggests it could be haunted and the conversation shifts to what even counts as haunted in the...
SEPTEMBER 2021 NEWSLETTER Nature is all around us, in every way possible. Something so permissible to the universe it makes up that it's even transcended into our hearts and minds. Whether it be a frightful enemy bringing disorder and disparity or the Mother of all things both living and dead whom we respect with a humble awe. Going as far to say that nature in itself is truly indescribable in full. Simply that it is, taking the form our collective unconscious believes it to be~ On a...

August 2021 NEWSLETTER The chime of the doorbell rings a short jingle as a patron enters the building. A strong scent stimulates their olfactory senses as they close their eyes to savor the fragrance. It’s a pungent smell, a flowery, smoky, nutty, and herby aroma. They’re all different yet stem from the same source, a coffee bean, just like the environment of a coffee shop. The patron opens their eyes and surveys their surroundings as they stand in the queue line for the register...

Hey All, Just posting up a quick notice to let you all know that later in the evening (EST Time) at some point we should be having 1-2 hours of downtime as we move back the site to our server in Utah that has been successfully recovered after the April outage, which you could read more about here.

Hey All, We’ve gone ahead and released a beta site for those of you interested in helping test new features and provide feedback...
We’re back! As not everyone may be aware of the situation: RpNation went dark April 4, 2021. To sum up what happened, the facility where our server is hosted suffered a catastrophic event. The facility lost power, which caused the backup generators to kick on. One of those generators caught fire, triggering the fire suppression system. So, not only was power lost to the whole facility a second time, but many servers were at risk of water damage. On April 6, 2021, after being in contact...

Hey All, First Tool: Etherpad For years, one of the biggest requests we've gotten is for the ability to collaboratively write in real time together with each other on the site, and while that is out of the scope of a forum software, that does not mean that it isn't for other things, particularly something secure, open source and widely used. We have launched our own etherpad instance at RpNation's Etherpad Etherpad is a Google Documents alternative that allows you to share a single link...

Hey All, So this is something that has been on my mind again and something that has constantly come up by various members over the years and it has been a pretty consistent request over the past 12 but I have never formally polled the site about this. Do you want RpNation Merch? We have been trying since last year and early this year to find a way that we can do this in a method that is both logistically sound and produces high-quality items. We got invited to try Merch by Patreon, a new...
