The PRC site will be shut down within the next week.  The URL will be kept active with the manual, chat, links to NWVault and other content still available.  The forums and main page here will be gone.  Please plan accordingly.

Thank you all for your past support!

Bummer!

Is there any way to make old forum posts still be available? I find them pretty useful sometimes. Also, I hope we can set up new forums somewhere else, and a message posted to the old forums before they shut down would be the best way for people to find it.

And here's one idea how we could do it: set up an nwnprc discussion group in google groups, and host the code in google code.

If this sounds like a good idea to people, I could set it up.

OMG !!
It would really be sad to lose all the infos/builds/Techinal helps/articles .. to go to waste.
About making a google group, it sounds like a good idea indeed >_<
Might sound like a stupid question, but is there any way to download all the site web pages ? (well a bit in the forum of the nwn prc manual..like an archive with everything up to now).

For what it's worth, I've set up this: http://groups.google.com/group/nwnprc

If people end up preferring another solution, this group can at least be used to coordinate that other solution.

I don't plan on deleting the site content until I've made at least one backup, so it may still be possible for me to keep some forum posts.  Can't guarantee they're easily postable, but I'll try.  Articles will be a lot easier to archive and I'll probably put those up later.

You're definitely welcome to run a Google Group for this pack!  I can put a note on this site redirecting people there if you want.

Well, some good news.  DM_Heatstroke has offered to keep hosting PRC forums.  He says he can migrate over all the usernames and content to his site at http://prc.athasreborn.com/index.php.

I'll hold up shutting this down until I can determine whether or not it will work.  If it will, he may be able to migrate absolutely all forum posts over.

Yup, it's really viable for him to do the hosting.  As the news announcement should be saying any minute now, we can move all forums content over without an issue, so the PRC will still have a forum somewhere (even if it isn't here).

The PRC is way too neat to let linger without a central location to talk about it.
