News & Updates

Look, we've been this late before, okay.

X-mas in July!

Hey, look -- another lovely Xmas in July contest! Make sure to sign up before the 13th! :)

Tentative Date for Server Move

It's happening! Get ready for our previously mentioned server move this month.

We're planning to spend the next week or so moving everything except the live forums. Pack leaders, please refrain from making new updates to pack websites for the time being. The Wiki will also be locked from editing and/or be taken down sometime this coming week.

For now, we're aiming for July 17th to be when we lock down the live forum so we can back it up and transfer it to the new host. The transfer shouldn't take more than a day, and after the transfer is complete, we'll be able to update the domain to point to the new host and everything should be good to go.

There should be no data loss as part of the move -- there should be no noticeable change to any of our sites and resources at all after the transition is complete -- but as always, we encourage players to backup and save important information regularly regardless.

We will keep you updated on all news channels if the transfer date changes, but if it does, it will probably be later, rather than sooner.

Spotlights for July 2017

Spotlight Soul

The Spotlight Soul for July is Maelyx (Nukiira)! Since rejoining, Maelyx has been a huge part in redefining Anathema culture, helping out within the pack, and diving head-first into plots. She has already started to settle down and build a reputation, relationship, and make her mark -- three cheers for Maelyx! We can't wait to see what you do next! :)

Community Soul

There is no Community Soul for June.

Soldier of Love

Once again, our 'Souls Soldier of Love is the indomitable Sylvey! Dang, you rule! :) Can anyone defeat this voting machine?!

The Wiki will be disabled for editing around midnight EST tonight so it can be backed up for the server move. Get your edits in before then if you don't wanna sit on them until after the move.

:cool:

The forums will be locked as planned
tomorrow, July 17th, around 11am EST.


After that time, all forum topics will become inaccessible. If you want to be able to work on posts/replies, please make sure you save the threads/posts you need for reference to your local computer. All your forum info will be safe, just inaccessible.

Shortly after the forum is locked, soulsrpg.com and all subdomains will probably go down and you won't be able to reach the website or forums at all, or it'll be a blank page, etc.

Twitter will be our primary communications channel for updates. You can keep yourselves and each other entertained on Discord while the forum and site are down.

Our hope is that the forums will be down for 24 hours or less, but we'll keep you updated.

Because of various technicalities (lots of things depend on the DNS propagation), we've yet been able fully move other 'Souls resources to the new host. Since our first priority is the forums, this means that things like pack sites, the RP Guide, Wiki, etc, will probably be down for longer.

If anyone has any questions, feel free respond here while the forums are still up. Otherwise, you can @ me directly on Twitter @Kiriska or tag me in a #help channel post on the Discord. (Don't PM me on Discord.) Thanks.
