Is Your School Blocking Access to RPG? Report them here!

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Remæus on Thu Apr 09, 2020 1:51 pm

Hello, RPG! When I started this community in 2005, I set out to establish the same opportunities I was afforded as a young adult — a supportive group of creative writers, eager to collaborate on storytelling and literary skill. Since then, we've garnered the accolades of many, espousing the success of our initiative to help young writers improve their skills.

Unfortunately, it seems many schools have RPG blocked on their networks, for reasons which seem antithetical to literary education. After the most recent occurrence, I've decided to draft a form letter which can be sent to the Administrations of these schools, hopefully resulting in the restoration of access to RPG for their students.

If you find that your school is blocking access to RPG, please report them here! We will happily print and mail a copy of this letter to them to begin a conversation, once again enabling you to easily access our supportive community (and potentially even earning you extra credit for the effort!).

Feel free to make edits to the document itself, as we'd like to make it as well-written as possible to ensure our chances at being unblocked.

Thanks for your help!

Yeah, my school blocks it. I'll probably write a letter to them myself, I doubt they would trust an outside source of information. Thanks for all you do, Remaeus. I love using this site to roleplay, and it really has increased my adeptness for writing. I believe we should be allowed the freedom to talk with people outside of the system, in order to better ourselves in our communication skills and understanding. I'll write up a few letters of complaint to the school board, hopefully that'll get me where I want. Once again, thank you.
Yours Truly,
Joseph Bennett

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Schools block these sites unnecessarily ruining our fun and help to learn new things it is unfair that they can have these types of sites that help people blocked but they cant block game sites that distract kids during class and such
