It seems the RD Network community has come to the conclusion that they must split in half, but its an agreement on both sides. Since its creation, basically a lot of roleplaying has cropped up, which of course there are people out there that do not enjoy it as much as others. I’m a roleplayer (though not of ponies) and indeed with the way the network works, a split would be a good move. Also it seems they have some trouble with the server, probably due to the heavy load it gets, so I can’t say if a new server will be added or if this is just a split in the service, but it might help that situation.
Apparently they are looking for a banner, roughly the same size as the current one, for the roleplaying side of the community. Entries can be thrown at firstname.lastname@example.org, deadline May 11th.
