    Email is still not fixed, just as it has not been fixed. They keep saying it is "isolated", but there seems to be problems with about the same # of people each time is fixed.
    Many have just given up.

    Just trying to help out.

    Is there a plan to extend or refund (HAHAHA) anyone's period of "service" during this time of management crisis/restructuring and technical difficulties. For example, will Obsidian Portal automatically extend six months free of Ascendant membership to anyone who is a current and paid up Ascendant member? Because we have pretty much have been paying for these promised services that have not been here for months now. Is OP going to take care of us? Or will we just tossed out like yesterday's jam? (bonus points to anyone who gets the pop culture reference!) I'm sure I already know the answer, and it seems the new guys in charge could only care about this website making money, without it actually doing anything. I'm not a computer programmer, I'm a diesel engine and jet turbine engine mechanic. I know if I had a piece of equipment or an aircraft down this long, I would no longer have a job...

    Support for this website is dead... D-E-D, DEAD! (Kudos if you get the reference)

    We get to continue using the website as-is for as long as you want to continue paying for the membership.

    Yeah, my Premimum craptacualr Assendup membership ends in January. I will make sure it does not renew. I have been debating on just leaving OP altogether, but the sad thing is, I can't find anything better as bad as this is. I wish I knew programming!!!! Or knew programmers! I would love to see someone else make another gaming website, similar, yet different, and fully operational.

    To fix this can not be that hard. Child's play, I'm sure it's not, but come on...are they hiring trained and certified programmers and IT people, or just their buddies, or those guys in front of Home Depot??

    Are you referring to Eddie from RHPS?? D-E-D! I say that line all the time, and people look at me like I'm crazy....well it could be because I'm crazy, I don't know...

    Almost, but not quite. :) This quote appeared in 2 movies. 1) Robin Hood, Men in Tights... scene with Don Giovanni. 2) Spawn... the clown explaining that he's dead.

    R2builder- there were refunds mentioned for those of us that had email troubles, but nothing has come of it. I am now on monthly, and will be leaving soon- more to come on where as soon as I find the place. Just tired.
    Krothos, well done- didn't have time to go with the Men in Tights reference.

    Well, killer, if you move along, please let me know where to too!!! The sad thing is you have been here for years, I have been here two years, and a lot of people have been using this for two or more years. I know this is a niche hobby, but with stuff Roll20, ultra high speed internet, great web cameras, all digital dice that everyone on the virtual table can see, there is no longer the need to find the local gamers. I still run games at my house using the real dice, pens and papers, but I live near DC, so there a lot of people around here...too many. There need for this kind of product is there, I can't understand why this one or one very similar can't be or has not been made. When I first made my Star Wars FFG game here on the OP, I can't remember the exact number or campaigns, but it was under 100, I think. It was in the mid 90's. Right now EOTE alone has 1327 campaign pages. Now granted, I'm sure most of them are empty and not used or mainained, but that is still showing a great growth and interest in this! Well, someone should make a clone of the OP and call it Black Hole gaming Nexus. The all in one RPG campaign manager. If you can do that, I will give my money...as long as it works as advertised.

    So... the hypothetical problem that one (hypothetically) might run into with creating an alternate place for this sort of thing is trying to boil down to a few "core functions" that serve the community's needs. Whatever might be functioning imperfectly at the moment on Obsidian Portal, it has had quite a while to build up an impressive set of features, and catching up to that will take quite some time and effort. So narrowing down the scope for short term goals is painful (because all the features are fun, and somebody somewhere finds each of them essential).

    Speaking hypothetically, of course. I certainly haven't been registering potential domain names and playing with CMS and wiki platforms, investigating hosting services, etc.... Certainly not, no sir...

    Well, if you like the name I suggested, I want nothing in return other than a simple acknowledgment in the website! :)

    I couldn't imagine undertaking a project of this sort, and what the guys did in the beginning that led us to here is truley remarkable. I have only been here a couple of years, and not a very active community member, so I don't know/understand the breakdown and what has transpired that has led to the eventual breakdown of OP. But as I see it, I really feel and believe that OP is in its death throes.

    Creating and mainintaing something of this nature is alien to me. I can't understand how much time or money it would take to create, or keep up something like this. But I feel the need for such a product exsits, and the few I have seen are really expensive, and don't really seem to fit my needs.

    So, I wish you a hypothetical good luck! Keep us abreast (hehehee) of any hypothetical news and developments! And if anyone of you finds a new home, please share it with us!!!! That way we can either follow with our games, or just keep up with your games.

    Any hypothetical research results in hypothetically discouraging results. That generate more work for less results. Although, I did have one semi-successful project.

    So, did they actually fix it this time or is this just another temporary thing due to someone else doing something?

    This whole situation is frustrating as hell

    Oh look at that, its not working again
    Big Freaking Surprise

    I feel like I'm being held hostage because there is no other site out there that lets me do what OP DID.

    But OP isn;t doing it anymore either

    FIX YOUR FRELLING STUFF ALREADY!!!!!!!!!

    OK, so, I got tired of waiting and did a workaround

    It was inspired by a site that KillerVP shared out. I forget the GM's name right now

    And actually, I think it looks better now than with just the video there

    I would say make it open the video into a new browser tab myself, but outside of that, I like that you can use the workaround to have the video setup blend into your campaign theme rather than just having a video sitting there on your page.

    I'm seeing that already embedded youtubes are working again, but the "media embed" menu button doesn't work (in fact, that entire menu is sort of detached and weird when I edit a wiki page), copying embed code from youtube into the html doesn't work, and mimicing the html code of previously embedded videos doesn't work
