If you read this blog, you are mostly likely aware that I belong to the RPG Bloggers Network, but you may not have been aware the operators of the network have decided to step down and possibly transfer ownership of the powerful feed aggregator.
If you’re an avid fan of the RPGBN, I wouldn’t worry about anything. Chris Tregenza of 6d6 Fireball is creating a proposal to submit to the soon to be defunct operators. Since his team is the only other proposal I was aware of (the other one having been withdrawn), it seems likely that 6d6 will be hosting the RPGBN soon. Even if the network just closes shop, there are many new feed aggregates popping up such as the Savage Bloggers Network (for Savage Worlds) and RPB Bloggers.
The withdrawn proposal was created by Berin Kinsman of UncleBear. I am going to assume that the RPGBN carried too much baggage (technologically & otherwise) for Berin to want to seriously invest anytime with. So instead, fresh off introducing a new social network for New Mexico fan communities, he has created the Role Play Media Network using the Ning platform.
The RPMN (always room for another acronym) targets podcasters, bloggers, publishers, and their audience and fans. While feeds can be found on the network, its job is not to be a feed aggregator. Its job is to serve as communication hub for RPG fans. So I recommend you go over there and sign up, it already has 220 or more members and growing fast.
