Alright everyone - that silly Wolf here to be serious for a couple of minutes. What I am about to propose is both highly lucrative and highly dangerous... Er, sorry, being serious.


If NTW and I pay for private hosting, is everyone willing to move DI there? What we're offering is a home of our own that we can do what we want with, and it comes with some advertising done by myself and any mods who wish to help with that.

Basically, the set up would look like this, Mod wise.

Head Admins:
NTW, Yozshand, Leboy, Ding(?)

These four will be the ones in charge of DI and everything that happens within it. Basically, no change from what's happening now, just on a new site. They'll also decide how many support admins they want and be in charge of who those people are.

Support Admins:
Whoever those four decide. Basically their job is straight forward, they support the head admins with character approvals and any disputes that might be happening. Or whatever else the big four need done.

Technical admin:
This one would be me. Basically, has nothing to do with DI, just makes the technical side look pretty and neat, as well as getting some advertising out there so we can grow. Also I get first dibs on any punch or pie that we come across.



That's the meat of it. Basically no change from what we have here, except that it will be out own home and we can advertise it. What say you all?

What would it cost? Would it help if we pitched in?

I'd run it by Maguas, too, just to give him a heads up that we're leaving. We'd also have to let people who come here know that we've left.

I'd like to point out that Khan was recently made a mod and, while several mods have come back (Ding is pretty far gone, I think), Khan's a solid admin. He could easily stand in Ding's place. Yoz seems to have also lost interest in DI at the moment - I don't know if he'll be coming around soon.

The Ding can be revived, if you but have faith.


But seriously, I'll talk to Ding. As for Khan, at the moment I was counting him as a support admin. Instead of replacing Ding right away if he doesn't come back, I was thinking you three other heads could discuss if you need another head admin, or want to wait on it for a bit and see how it goes. Basically, it's a decision for all of the 'Head Admins' to make, not me.

Ding isn't far gone. I was just talking to him about coming back last night, since most of us have been nudged about returning from someone else.

I'm down with this. Would we be hauling all the archives over with us, or leaving them here so that all the links in post are still functional?

I would say we should only take what we need, to reduce clutter.

As for cost, I'm not yet sure. I'm thinking of adding a way to donate, which would help with some actual advertising on well hit sites.

There was talk of converting much of the DI errata & rules to a more wiki-based format. Would we have the power to do that if we moved? I think it'd make implementing patches and looking stuff up a whole lot easier.

I don't see why we couldn't. It would likely take some time to set up, But we could make it work.

I could really approve of this endeavor. Well thought and I'd be able to help fiscally and possibly writing-wise if wanted.

I think this could be a solid idea, but I'm a little scared of what type of advertisement Wolf could put up...

Greater visibility? Full control to do whatever we want with the site?

Sounds like a plan. Need a hand with anything ask.

I'm an advertiser at work... That's what I get paid 10$ an hour to promote shows at a little theater for free.. I'd be happy to help advertising staff. :) I totally support us getting more freedom of site usage.

It seems this has a fair amount of support. Alright, the next thing to be discussed - Should we keep 'Darkness Incarnate' as the name, or choose something else everyone likes?



darknessincarnate.com is apparently taken, though it says it's a broken link when I try to use it. DIRPG.com is free, as is DarknessIncarnaterpg.com...

However, does anyone have any suggestions for a new name? We can set a poll up once we have some suggestions, unless everyone just wants to keep DI (Which is the one I would vote for, using one of the two up there. LEaning towards DIRPG as it's short and easy :P)

Holy crap DarknessIncarnate.com is $2,300 what...

DIRPG might be nice. DI-RPG.com?

I'm not a fan of "DIRPG"... because I could imagine it being pronounced "DERP-age"... As in the act of Derping.

Well... we have the "World of Darkness Incarnate" already.

"DI-RPG" could be simple, possibly the same issue though.

"Stolatos's World of Homess Fairy-killers" seems too long.

"World of King Ein" is good.

I think making a new name would help if we could pin down a name for the continent that we're on. Has any information in the PQs been canon to everyone's story?

What portion of the world can we all agree on? Perhaps NTW's map? Or the presence of the King of Darkness tournaments?

Hopefully these questions generate some thoughts.
