    Default Thank You

    It's no secret that the past two weeks have brought some of the biggest shake-ups URPG has ever seen. Between losing a major forum, several members quitting, troubling pasts being brought to light, and the appointment of a new Head of URPG (hi!), saying that we have all been subjected to a rough time would be a drastic understatement. I won't sugar-coat it: we nearly lost URPG altogether. After 20 years.

    Nearly.

    Today is a new day. For the past few days, people have been breathing sighs of relief. We are waking up to calm waters; no more drama, no more long, paragraphs of anger, sadness, remorse, or frustration. The game has returned to normal; albeit a bit on the slow side (nothing we can't handle!). We are free to write, grade, draw, create, curate, role play, battle, ref, contest, judge, laugh, and talk just as we were only a few weeks ago.

    And it's all thanks to you.

    URPG almost died, but it didn't. Why? Because so many people didn't want it to. Because so many people came to show support. You didn't give up. You didn't leave at the first sign of hardship. You fought for something you have dedicated yourselves to for many hours at the very least. Words cannot express how proud I am to be part of such a strong, supportive, and dedicated community. We accepted the call to action, and now we can continue for many years to come.


    I know this isn't much. I know it can't come close to making up for the anxiety that many of you have endured in the past week. But we cannot let your patience, perseverance, and dedication go unrewarded.

    Staff have discussed this for a few days, and we are pleased to offer 15k to all of members as our way of saying thank you. You need only to post in this thread to claim it. As an aside, I will not be claiming this money personally, but I highly encourage my amazing Staff to do so. You all have certainly earned it.

    Thank you, once again, to this great and strong URPG community. /end_drama

    EDIT: I am going to set a limit of 6 months to claim this. After June 27, 2018, it cannot be claimed.

    Claiming. Thanks a lot, Swift, for all the work you've put into keeping this community alive during such dramatic and startling revelations and changes. I myself haven't been very active the past week or so, but it's been great logging in every day and seeing PXR, PWN, and Discord still alive and active. This is a very kind gesture and it means a lot. <3

    Thanks, Swift- both for the cash and for the work you've put in. I've said it before, but I think you're a great choice for leader (or interim leader, at least). URPG's gonna do great in the new year.

    Claiming my 15k!
