    Join us & help keep RPS running strong!

    Hi, fellow users of RPS!

    We’re writing this announcement with some challenging news in mind. As staff, we have decided that the best approach is simply to be honest with all of you. We all think RPS is a very unique site on the web and that the community here is unlike any other RP site in terms of amazing quality writers and the staggering amount of history and legacy. The less fun side of this is that it costs money to keep the site running. So far we have had the site owner pay full amount for the site out of his own pocket, but this option is no longer viable.

    Yes, you guessed it, we need your help!

    In order to keep the site running, we will need $250 every month. If all our active users donated at least $10 a month, we’d definitely make it! Actually, we don’t like asking for money, as we believe the art this site produces is best when it is not based on a person’s financial background, which is why we don’t want to limit the site to a subscription deal. But we love the site and instead, we look to your charity in order to keep going!

    You can subscribe by going to http://rp-society.com/forum.php and scrolling down to the bottom, where there is a dropdown menu with the different price options!

    In the past we have had donations, but they are often one-off donations and we need something regular in order to pay the monthly server bill. Which is why we’re now launching a subscription plan for platinum membership! There will be three different levels, 10, 20, and 30 USD a month, with the most expensive one being the one with the most perks. The perks are meant as a ‘thank you’ for donating your hard-earned money to the site. The subscriber perks would be applicable as long as you stay a subscriber.

    The worst case scenario: If we don’t raise the funds needed before January 22nd, we will not be able to keep the forum as it is. If you become a subscriber, and we still don’t raise enough funds by the deadline, we will, of course, refund you your money, unless your Paypal payment states that you are okay with the donation not being refundable, in which case it will go into moving to the new forum. We will keep the domain name, but we will have to move to a cheaper forum provider with a lot less customization.

    Currently, we have a lot of fun ways to make our posts great, whether it be fancy fonts, adding music or graphics above a certain file-size. We would have the basics, but we feel that what makes RPS different from other site is the quality you guys bring to the site, and we can only hope that a move will not decrease the quality of writing. Additionally, the move will entail that all users move their own content manually as the current server size is far too big to host on a cheaper provider. Thankfully we do have a download as TXT option on threads, so we do encourage our users to start saving ASAP!

    So please, fellow RPers and those of you that can, make a subscription plan. We would like to point out that no money goes into the pockets of any staff member. All of it goes into saving the site. If we, by some miracle, raise more than $250 through subscriptions, the extra money will go into savings. We would be grateful for one-off donations as well but just to inform you all, one-off donations will only get us through January, and we will not be able to guarantee survival through the following months, so if we don’t raise our goal via subscription by the 22nd, all donations will be refunded unless your Paypal payment states that you are okay with the donation not being refundable.

    We would also like to apologize for having to do this. We don’t like asking for charity (unless Orrden is asking for eggnog donations...), but this is the time to band together as a community. We also have some exciting plans ahead if the site stays afloat! We love this site, and we as staff truly believe that there really is no site with as much RP quality and high-caliber collaborative content as this one. We have some authors that could end up landing publishing deals and absolutely none of us would be surprised! So let’s save our little haven!

    PERKS (Applied by the 25th of January if goal is met):

    $10.00:
    1. 1-2 Title GIFS from selection (Animation option)
    2. Cute Animated Badge
    3. 200x250px Avatar

    $20.00:
    1. 1-4 Title GIFS from selection (Animation option)
    2. Change Title Text Colour
    3. 2x Cute Animated Badges
    4. 200x300px Avatar

    $30.00:
    1. 1-6 Title GIFS from selection (Animation option)
    2. Change Title Text Colour
    3. Change Title Font
    4. 3x Cute Animated Badges
    5. 200x350px Avatar

    Update: We've raised $60 in monthly subscriptions so far! Our remaining goal is $190 more! A HUGE thank you to our subscribers!
    Update 2: Our apologies, the download format is in TXT, not PDF, so it is editable.
    Update 3: To the users that have not yet, please contact Orrden with your username if you have made a subscription

    Hey guys! We're starting countdown on the subscription deadline - 2 more weeks to go! We also greatly encourage everyone to start saving their threads and any other information they would like to keep such as PMs, OOC memories, graphics, etc. as we cannot take responsibility for the lost data incase we need to move!
