I see a lot of the old names around. Are things stable these days? I'm getting the bug again and wondering if it's worth signing back up for a subscription.
Hey Basileus, I would say things are pretty stable now. The "bad old days" are gone, and Kallak has excelled in keeping things together.

I think things have stabilized, and the site is good to go for performing the functions we are used to, an excellent platform.
But I do feel it is still in a "steady state" mode, with minor improvements on occasion.

There's even a number(well 1 is a number) who swore this off forever(and old staff who liked it that way) who have made a return even already.

Well, as with basically everything, things could be better; but we're certainly making forward progress (albeit slower than preferred to be sure). Seeing some of the old crowd popping up is definitely awesome - and I hope it continues.

It's absolutely worth renewing. Now sure what the old features were, but as a pretty active DM, it's got what I need and more. I've only been really active on the site for the last year or so, but it's a fantastic. I keep hearing about "the old days"- but honestly, the site works great for what it focuses on, and improvements ARE being made by some VERY hard working people. I wish there was a more active community but I feel like it has been improving lately.
Kallak has made a huge difference! While I am nowhere near as active, nor using most of the ascendant features, I came back....
Just trying to help out. Changed name from killervp to Gaming Megaverse to match other sites.
I hope to be able to continue doing so. It's been an honor thus far.
The old 500 errors and most other bugs have been squashed for most of this year. Been months since i've had any problems. As long as I have an active RPG campaign going i'll be here.
The system is stable and the platform as useful as ever. Glad I never gave up and hung around

Well now. I might just turn up a bit more if that's the case. Pretty solid on a private wiki for most of my stuff atm, but worth considering. How hard is it to restore deleted campaigns from the OP backups?

How far back is the deletion?
Oh I doubt it's anything y'all would find it worth digging into. The deletions are somewhere around 3-5 years ago and it was never meant to be a restorable setup in the beginning. I merely had hopes that might have changed along with all the other positives I'm seeing around here.
It's definitely something that is on our wish list. We don't have it right this moment, but in due time I'm sure.
It's always a welcoming thing to hear of THE OLD GUARD returning!
Old Guard? Heh, I'm in my 50s now...
Now GMLoki, you KNOW that's not what I meant. LOL!
Anyway, I'm gonna be 57 in three weeks. No party. Just a day off work.
You deserve a party @twiggyleaf I guess we will have to figure that out...
I will wait until July to be 57, you go ahead first @twiggyleaf
Hey @SkidAce, I'll let you know what it was like.
Huzzah! For once I'm the youngster! Time to sass all of you unmercifully!
@kallak - So I know the old backups are not meant to be restorable archives, but they are a bitch to dig through in a browser, often locking up. Any advice on what viewer I should use with an eye towards cutting content and pasting it over here as I rebuild my hub?
@SkidAce, I forgot to let you know about my birthday. It went by without much ado. I had a few whiskies the night before, so just DID NOTHING for the actual day. The following day, we had a family Zoom session with cocktails prepared at each of our homes. I had a Passion Fruit something or other and a Woo-woo! Both pretty nice. How about you????
What is a Woo Woo asks the ignorant American....
Vodka, Peach Schnapps, Cranberry Juice and a squeeze of fresh lime.
@twiggyleaf , sounds like a great time, gives me hope for mine!
