  1. Mortica drifted on her raft off the west coast of Zandalar, sprawled out under an umbrella with a fishing pole braced to the side of her, her finger laying on the line to feel the fate of her bait in the water below. She could hear nothing but the white noise of the ocean and a few sea birds cawing in the air high above. Life, or whatever undead were supposed to do, was pretty good. Her thoughts drifted slower than the fluffy clouds above her, and the sound of the approaching drone somehow mixed into the sound of the waves lapping against the raft. It was nearly directly overhead before
  2. Hi there and welcome :) Happy story writing!
  3. The Grim are on Grobbulus (horde). There are other TNGers there, but I'll leave it to others to say who their names are. Many TNGers are on Bloodsail Buccaneers with a bunch of them conglomerating into the guild Intrepid (alliance). My main is a troll priest named Tisk on Grobbulus, and I have a little gnome warlock named Ghrinn on BB. Your best bet is to get on Discord (link at the top of the right sidebar, click the "Join Us" button) and ask around there. The forums are kinda dead :(
  4. Hey there. I think a bunch of us are on Grobbulus, and a bunch of others are on Bloodsail. Have fun!
  5. Finally got unbanned and posted: https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/wow/t/rp-pvp-a-love-letter-and-a-few-stats/194121
  6. I was auto-banned on the official blizzard forums when I tried to post there. I'm guessing because it was my first post in years and it had a link?. It was instant, so not because of them disagreeing with my post's content. Dunno. I typed it out, so here it is: Hi, most people know me as Mortica. I’ve run a RP-PVP fansite for the Twisting Nether server (and later the combined Ravenholdt server) since late November of 2005, a few months after the first three RP-PVP servers opened up. It’s called the Twisting Nether Gazette. It was featured on the WoW Community Spotlight a couple o
  7. Hey all, I did a fairly major upgrade to the site this morning. One of things you might want to do is update your bookmarks so they link to https:// instead of http://. The site will auto-redirect you, but it might save you a fraction of a second in loading the site if you change your bookmark. The site should run a bit faster now, and I've got some options for speeding it up more that I might test. The forum software that this site runs on, https://invisioncommunity.com/ is leased for a fee every 6 months. The next renewal day is in late May. The one after that is in November. I w
  8. Welcome back Most of the out-of-game activity has moved to the Discord server, so if you are feeling lonely, click the JOIN US link on the top right side of the forums page
  9. Welcome back Check out our Discord server, as that has some good activity (link in upper right of forums area).
  10. There is a permanent link to the Discord at the top of the forums in the right column, where it says "Join Us". Welcome to the server
  11. Hey all, I've added two new themes to the boards. I have arbitrarily made the Horde one the default, but there is an Alliance version also. I am leaving the green Legion and default White there for others who either don't like change or dark colored forums. Let me know (screenshot if you can) if you find an area where the text on background doesn't have enough contrast to be able to read it. I've gone through a bunch of the pages and I've fixed the things I've found so far. Happy new expansion! To change your theme, go to the bottom center of the page --> Theme --&g
  12. Update: I've enabled the clubs feature. You can see the features and some example screenshots here. These can be created by anyone right now. Some potential things people might use them for is maybe a class specific group where you can post useful information (spec guides, PVE or PVP builds, etc). Lore guides/discussions? Spoiler discussions? Guild chat areas? RP story line discussions? Up to you. I will be removing the collaboration area as soon as I can make sure that the posts and stories that were posted there aren't deleted. Discord widget is prettier, and the join
  13. Update: I can't get Illiden to show up, and default text is back to an off blue from the original theme, but otherwise everything should be roughly back to normal. The new theme options seem a bit more intuitive and exposed (as in, I don't have to search through 5,000 lines of CSS code in 15 different files to figure out why this or that is blue), so I will be looking into that this weekend and get things back to the same or better than they were. Currently what you see is a mixed-up mutt of the old theme and the new forum software theme-ing setup. Also, it looks like IPS now
  14. Everything should be working again. I'll get the dark green theme back ASAP

    It's a default setting. The reason there is a limit is because it gives reputation points. I'll increase the limit.
  16. See post in RP Events for more information!
  17. To get everyone in the mood for Legion, I am holding a demon hunter story and art contest. It can be an origin story, or the continuing adventures of your character. Open to characters on Twisting Nether or Ravenholdt, and can be either Alliance or Horde. Contest runs until September 12, 2016. Prize: 1,000 Gold, and featured on the Home page here on TNG. To enter, simply put [contest] in the title of your Nether Legends or Artist Gallery post. Content should follow normal TNG rules. Any questions? Post them here This post has been promoted to an article
  18. Hmm, it appears the forums auto-detects your timezone based on whatever device you are using to connect with. I've found a way to turn it off for individual members, but I don't see a way to do it for everyone. I guess if you are having problems with the times on the site, let me know?? *shrug*
  19. Are you getting different times for different characters? The calendar is going to post for your profile's timezone, and automatically calculate the time for people in different time zones (to be safe, I suggest putting in the server time in the description since everyone knows how to calculate from that)
  20. iPad's can't do flash, I think. Not sure if Discord uses it for the webpage, but that would be my guess. Not enough room for the app?
  21. ((add it to the calendar to have it show up in the upcoming events list))
  22. more css I need to track down and override, weee. Blinding white stuffs.
