Another easy thing to do now is to turn disable the Automated Games and the Otto von Redscape forums, since Otto is now officially kaput.

Guys, I've missed quite a few of you (not sure too many of you will even remember me :razz: )

The reasons for my long, extended break were two-fold, first was the break that we all seem to need at times, and then, when I recently made an attempt to make a minor comeback, I had some fairly serious health issues. I found myself reminiscing a bit and looked up the site and found this thread.

I always found the one thing that brought me back were the actual forum games with the banter IN the game threads. Not just a few maps but some in game BS and such...it then led me to read more of the general threads. The human element has always been the strength of Redscape and I am glad to see a bunch of you doing your best to bring this back to us.

Not sure what I can do to help with the resurrection...I have some minor phpBB skills as I've admin'ed a couple of sites in the past but I'm not a master at them and I don't have a whole lot of free time either...

Anyway, I'll be checking back and I'm hoping to see some games started as I might like to try to get in to one more.

Brian,
I am sorry to hear about your health issues. I hope whatever needs to be done is being done and I wish all the best for you. But I'm glad to see you back! Your comments are right on, regarding what makes Redscape special. You may notice that we do have a game going at the moment, and I'm hoping we will have another game going before too long. I'm looking to schedule enough time so that I could GM a game. In any event, when a new game starts, I hope you are going to be one of the players!

I'd be happy to quit vdip and come back here. As many have commented this site always had a more human feel. I think the others are right that the game tab needs to be retired and instead should send one to some place like the forums of the old redscape- with announced games - and forums for each of the on going games.

I think people had to communicate much more in redscape and the human judges always added some flare--- esp Felix back in the day --- it was always fun to read his emails.

I'll try and bring some people back this way.

Ahh, I don't actually know any PHP at the moment, but it is something that I have been thinking of learning. So if you let me know what needs to be done, I can help (for reference, I have used Python, Fortran, and C prior to this, with a bit of the python being Object-Orientated)

I am interested in having you see if you can do this. I would love to keep it in house. Will send info offline.
