Yes, the polls haven't been updated for a while... but that actually gave suggestions a chance for piling up enough so that I didn't have to think up all the polls myself :P The topics for this week are Super Mario RPG and Wind Waker. Enjoy.
Phantasy Star 1 Shrine facelifting...
08.05.2003 Update by Teran
Over the last weeks I did a lot of things to improve the shrine. And finally I can call the work finished. A complete listing of modifications, changes and additions can be seen on the shrine's mainpage.

I apologize, but due to some Outlook Express bugs I am pretty sure I've lost any e-mail sent to me since Saturday August 2nd. So, if you had e-mailed me between then and today (the 5th) please re-send your messages, sorry about that. As well, due to some ongoing computer overhauls at my end, I may be unable to attend to your business until later this week or this week-end, but hopefully everything will be back up soon.
Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits Review
08.08.2003 Update by Epicgamer
Again, I have managed to not write the review of Twilight of the Spirits for weeks, just like how I managed to not write the preview soon enough either. No matter, better later then never eh? Anyway, check it out here.
It was all worth the free game. And a free game that was good, go figure. :P
It's that Time Again
08.11.2003 Update by Cless Alvein
This week's polls features Heroes of Might and Magic, the popular strategy/RPG hybrid series. Go tell us what you think.
Whoops! I did it again
08.12.2003 Update by Skanking Garbage
...I forgot to update...that's what I did. :P The mailbag's been up for about an hour. Enjoy :D The next topic is about realism in RPGs. You should know where to send replies to. If not, look to your right.
What's that you say, TWO new shrines?
08.13.2003 Update by Merlin
Yes sir, RPGC is finally ready to unveil the latest two shrines to our ever-growing mass of shrining goodness. I am pleased to announce the Might and Magic II shrine, and our first ever GameCube shrine, Lost Kingdoms. And please welcome aboard Shalcar and X_countryguy, who will be joining the staff as the respective maintainers of those two shrines. Hurrah.
New Staffer = New Staffer Bio
08.13.2003 Update by X_countryguy
Yay, I finally finished my shrine so I also went ahead and added stuff to my bio.
It's gonna eat us all! Run for the hills!
08.14.2003 Update by Weiila
Yeah, you got to wait for a long time, but here's the reward... a huge monster update. Now run for the hills before it stomps on you or something. Or go read some, I hear that's a good weapon against beasts such as these... enjoy!

Well, as I'm sure some of you know, Toronto (along with most of northeastern North America) has been affected by an enormous blackout. I've just come off of 24 hours with no electricity (and I'm about to start another 25 hours without electricity for other reasons), and we're being asked to leave the phone lines free, so I'd rather not spend any time online. I haven't even checked my e-mail. I won't be able to respond to anyone or anything until Saturday night at the earliest (hopefully around 9 PM). Sorry for the inconvenience.
Finished Young Merlin
08.17.2003 Update by WoodenLeg_10
(I hope I'm doing this right.) The Young Merlin Shrine is completed for all to enjoy.
Edit by TD: Well, you didn't. Sorry about this people, the Young Merlin shrine will be properly put up on the shrines page later. For now, you can find it here.
Edit by Cidolfas: It's fine now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Sorry for the Inconvenience
08.18.2003 Update by Cless Alvein
Because the notifylist server is down and kind of spastic, there will be no newsletter this week. Twice as much stuff will be packed into next week's, however :P
Start of the Pictures! :D
08.18.2003 Update by The Black Ninja
For those who keep pestering me (:P) and cause i had the time finally, you can view pictures from My and Deadly's Wedding and some new baby pictures! Click here to view them. ^^
Check it out!
08.19.2003 Update by Cidolfas
Aside from a larger-than-usual update, the FF Compendium now has a sexy new layout for the high-res version! Go take a look! 8-)

Hi all. Just so you are all aware, I made a new page showing what domains we have blacklisted for Email. Meaning we don't accept mail from these domains for one reason or another. You can check it out here, or you can click the new link on the Table of Contents to your left.
08.23.2003 Update by Merlin
Just so all of you know, our mail server seems to be getting ravaged by that SoBig.F e-mail worm/virus you may have heard about on the news or something. In any event, what it's causing is a flooding of our e-mail addresses (especially pop accounts) and we're being inundated with spam/virused mail. There also seems to be an issue with sending mail as well. Anyway, until BN fixes the problem or until I do something, I don't recommend e-mailing staffers right now since their boxes may be clogged or something. I am running my e-mail gatherer 24/7 however, so if you have any questions either try to track the staffer down on the forums or chat, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be sure your message is delivered. You can also contact me on AIM (Merlin3649) too. Thanks and hopefully this is just a temporary issue.

This week's polls' topics are online RPG fandom and participation in a website in general and Sephiroth no Oukoku, a big site in its old days. Go vote!
The SaGa Maniac Community Rises!
08.24.2003 Update by Skankin Garbage
Once upon a time, about a year ago, there was this really cool online community for fans of the SaGa series. When it was about to die out, I asked the community leader if she'd like to have it on RPGClassics. Well, a message board was set up there, but due to lots of little problems, the site took a year to get up :P Well, it's finally around! So if you like the SaGa series, check it out! You can get there from the subsite window on the ToC. Join in on Discussion, and send in SaGa-Related material! This community won't get off the ground without some support! Thanks everyone. :D
There you go.

The Vagrant Story Shrine is up.
Again with the Polls
08.31.2003 Update by Cless Alvein
Polls of this week are about .hack//INFECTION, a fairly new game. The game simulates a MMORPG and creates a whole history in itself... would you like to see more RPGs like this? Vote to the right.
