    Whos still active on BRnet?

    Hi all,
    since i took my leave the site hasnt changed much.. actually is broken in a few places.
    I was thinking about looking into the possibilities of reanimating it again, perhaps with a different way of doing things.
    So i am wondering who is still using BRnet, and give some ideas on how you would like to see BR(net) being continued on the web

    I tend to check here once every few days. To see if new questions or articles are posted. Personally I enjoy it the way it is. But would not be adverse to change. If it is an upgrade, go for it. The site has always been a favourite of mine.

    I tend to check the state of things at least once a month, sometimes once or twice a week. Don't have time to do much.

    Just returned

    I've actually just returned to the site after a very long absence. I've come back because I am finally running a birthrightesque game again, and I'm digging for any and all information on how different people have implemented it in GURPS.

    I check in every other week or so. I check for new discussions, new files. I've been hoping to finish a small project, for eventual posting on BR.net.

    I don't have a problem with how the site currently looks, but i wouldn't object to a refresh, so long as things remain easily navigable. (Lately, i've seen a few too many sites get too clever with their layout and they just become clumsy to use.)

    Usage may vary...

    When I have time I love to come here and update the wiki and see what is going on. When I'm running a game, I'm here quite frequently to get information, ask questions, and come up with hooks/ideas.

    But as things stand right now, I only have time to check it out every week or so. I'd love a wiki update to bring it more into alignment with how wikipedia itself is made with the templates and what-not (The amount of time I've spent trying to work up solutions to infoboxes alone I could have built a house lol).

    The downloads/uploads section could definitely use a facelift with more detail on keywords and a more robust searching/filtering system.

    The forums themselves seem to be just fine. But there really does need to be a "contact us" button somewhere easily viewable if there is a problem with the site. I'm sure Arius is annoyed at my emails when the site goes down or about bot spammers on the wiki. I'm sure it is annoying to both Arius and google translate to figure out what I'm saying with my southern accent ;-)

    Big shoutout!

    I still use BRNet on an almost weekly basis. I run most of my D&D, Pathfinder, HR Blend rules using the Birthright setting. So for me, more than anything I tend to use the BR Wiki functions to look up place names, settings etc.

    The biggest suggestion I would make as far as that is concerned, is to maybe make sure to include clearer delineations as to what came directly from which source. I've noticed on quite a few pages that content from other players' campaigns, house rules etc. has slipped in and that's confused some of my players on more than a few occasions.

    Other than that, keep up the good work, for sure! Also, I'm not sure if you would maybe consider setting up a Patreon or something like that. I mean, I know you have the one time donation thing through Paypal... but maybe something to provide a more constant source of income might not be a bad idea.
