Staff#1PostSubject: Announcing an Upgrade: Convergence Wars!   Sun Nov 19, 2017 8:07 pm

Nearly two years after the creation of convergencerp.net, and 7 years after the inception of this RP group, we have yet again reached the capacity of our current platform. Whilst we have constantly updated the site with new features and systems, it seems our software limits us to provide some of the key quality-of-life features that could take us so much further. Because of this we are pleased to announce:


A new forum on a new software, Convergence Wars will take place around 2 years after Convergence RP. Your characters, lore, submissions, factions and everything done on this site will carry over (since this site will remain live as an 'archive' of lore and past threads). With this fresh start everyone will start on an even playing ground in terms of post counts and reputation.

Meanwhile we will gain the ability to implement many more features, the first of which are:
- Sub Accounts: The ability to create accounts for Characters underneath one OOC account, and switch between them all easily via a drop-down list.
- Completely new layout: Your profiles and the information displayed on posts now look 1000% snazzier, with Awards being displayed more prominently so they can be utilised more. The site will also be easier to navigate with less lore and past events being shoved in your face.
- Galactic Map Improvements: Territory bubbles will be displayed in a slightly different way, such as territories being physically labelled so factions can be similar colours but still clearly show what they own.
- Faction and Territory System Improvements: Calibur and Madi have been drafted onto a new 'Tech Team' section of Staff to help upgrade our factions system, arguably the key of our site, and keep it attractive yet robust. 
- 18+ Content: With new software comes a new host, who's licensing allows 18+ content. Whilst this is far from a definite implementation, Staff will consider a specialised section for such threads and stories.

And much more!


The possibilities this upgrade offers are too much to pass up on. We hope to bring Convergence Wars in it's entirety to you by late December (this year). Convergence RP will remain open for people to finish off threads and arcs, before becoming locked so it can act as an Archive for people to access or copy their old submissions and lore.

Thank you to all who are still here and contribute to the site.

Will we have to sign up again or does it transfer our accounts as well?

@hurttoto
New accounts so everyone starts on a level field, and also so you can link them together and switch between them.
