  1. Our SSL certificates for HTTPS connects expired and failed to auto-renew correctly. I've manually regenerated them, but it seems that some of the site cache didn't quite like that. You may notice a warning on your browser about the site being insecure, but this is just because the caching we use for site images doesn't perfectly match the site name and they're not playing nicely right now. *shakes fist at AWS* The actual site's security results can be found here: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=ffxiv-roleplayers.com I'm hoping to get the issu
  2. While making a character on the more RP-focused servers has its benefits (linkshells and free companies), it's not really required for a good RP experience anymore. You can make use of the World Visit system to just hop over to one of the more RPer-populated servers without having to fight the character creator limits. So if your goal is RP on Balmung and Mateus, you could make a character on Goblin or somewhere else that's nice and open on the Crystal datacenter and then just visit over to RP. Between Discord and Cross-World linkshells, most of the other restrictions are all gamep
  3. You'll find people spread across a lot of worlds. With the World Visit system that was introduced during 4.X, you can easily hop between the worlds on your datacenter, so trying to make/transfer a character into Balmung or Mateus isn't quite the issue it was back then. A lot of people have moved over to Discord in lieu of forums like the RPC, which makes finding people a little more difficult when not being quite as...advertised. Some good resources for Crystal-based RP would be the Balmung Roleplay Network discord https://discord.gg/bnBSTeU and general use Crystal RP one https://
  4. Hello! I'd recommend making a character in one of the Crystal data center worlds, specifically on Balmung or Mateus where the bulk of RPers tend to be. Other datacenters and worlds do also have RP, and if you're currently on Primal, I think the bulk tends to be on Hyperion. You can freely move between servers, but things like Free Companies (aka guilds in other games), world-only Linkshells (chat groups), and some other things don't operate the same between your home world and a visited world. For basic RP though, things in /say or /emote or /party chat will all work f
  5. Hello! I've identified the cause of the registration issue and tested that registration is working again now. Please let me know if you run into any issues by contacting the email address above.
  6. It's come to my attention that registering on the site is not working. I've filed a support ticket with Invision Community to check this out as we've had some site glitches after their most recent update. In the meantime, our site administrators can still make your account manually. Please email us at the-management@ffxiv-roleplayers.com with "Temporary Manual RPC Registration" in the subject line and the display name you'd like. We will then create a basic account for you and you'll receive an email asking you to set a password. You should be prompted to set up the rest of your s
  7. Most people tend to use the RPC Wiki, one or more tumblr profiles, and more recently they've also taken to using carrd profiles too for a single-page experience. The RPC Wiki provides some base templates you can copy from https://wiki.ffxiv-roleplayers.com/pages/Category:Wiki_Templates from a "copy here" codebox. Then you just fill in the blanks and sections as wanted. If you're looking for something simpler with a basic visual editor, you'll probably find a tumblr or carrd easier to get going.
  8. The pinned posts plugin is operational again! (Required an update). I've also added a fix for the post numbers plugin we use, which is now considered a "legacy" feature and does not come with IPS. Instead, they recommend grabbing links for posts off of the post date, which is a direct link to that post! (The post number plugin grabs the same link too, but down the line, we may lose this display)
  9. There may still be some glitches due to the amount of customization we previously had that the updater failed to get. If you notice something amiss, please let us know in this thread, in https://ffxiv-roleplayers.com/forum/39-requests-and-feedback/ or let a staff member know who can then poke me elsewhere! Edit: I am looking into a fix for the HTTPS/SSL errors. It's because we host images on Amazon S3, which uses a different security certificate.
  10. Major components of the theme should be updated now, and I've switched it back to Carbon. If you're looking for the light theme, you can find it on the bottom of the site in the Themes switcher. RPC for some basic branding and IPS4 Default for super bright and simple defaults.
  11. I'm in the process of fixing up our default theme (Carbon from IPSFocus) and have set the site to our old default in the interim while I fix up some display issues. I apologize for the longer maint page and appearance of things!
  12. I think this is going to be a case of figuring out exactly what you want your character to do. Going with the spear example, are you: Trying to be a Lancer? This refers to specifically the Lancer Guild in Gridania and their skills and practices. Trying to be a lancer? This refers to anyone who's learned those skills and practices, but not necessarily through the sanctioned guild. Trying to be someone who can wield a spear? (This may not even involve outside training.) Outside of a few of the more lore-restricted jobs where the main character is the excepti
  13. Hello! The infobox template code uses some arcane wikicode magic and doesn't need the normal [[file:name.ext]] conventions. I've swapped it to just the file name and that's removed the extra code from your page.
  14. Hello! While the Quicksand on Balmung is/was a good place to find public RP, it's also gotten a name for finding RP of other kinds, which typically goes on through /tell (private message) or in party chat. I would turn on the RP status icon and look for others with it as a good starting point. There's also the character search info, which allows you a small text blurb. Many RPers will state they're RPers, possibly what kind they're into, and if they're open to walkups/random RP along with a small character description or hook. As for Omega, I'm not entirely sure. A lot
  15. For new/returning players, you could join the Novice Network, but it varies wildly by server and time, and may not actually be conductive in having a good experience. SE's gotten a bit better about removing RMT spam, although you'll still see some bots in main cities doing it in /say by market boards and whatnot. They can be easily reported these days. Otherwise, the basic chat channels are: /shout - zone-wide chat channel. Anyone on the same map as you will receive it. /yell - wide-area chat channel. The whole map won't see this, but it's farther than /say or /emote
