Hi anyone who is still reading!
First of all a big thank you to 'Anonymous' (I know who you are ;P) for paying some more money to keep the site open. Unfortunately, being now an aged pensioner, at the moment we are trying to maintain and upgrade a bungalow whilst having limited income so the site is not frighteningly high on our payment list. I will, however, make an effort to put something in the coffers next year if I can ratch it out of the budget.
Secondly, we now have a new voice server in Discord, which seems to be working well. You can download it from here https://discordapp.com/. Once you have installed it you need to look for Rangers of Thintaur (RoT) and apply to join that - I think it needs to be approved but am not sure. Alternatively, you can message me for an invite which is easier. Then you can type messages to us in real time or if you want to voice chat, you click on Thintaur Voice on the left side of the chat screen. You will then have the dubious privilege of being able to hear my pathetic rantings if I'm online. The Discord server has a major advantage in that it is FREE! so do try it. Oh and it apparently works for Apple machines as well, so Gilly has no excuse! Hope to chat to old Thintaurians who have lost touch if they are around as well as our mob who are still playing.
