PPCBoard

A screencap of the original Board's header.

Not to be confused with Board of Department Heads.

The Board is not a table, it is not a plank, and it's not a chalkboard or whiteboard or whatever-else-have-you. It is the PPC Posting Board, and that means comfort it is the main message board of the PPC.

The Board has a constitution, which we politely insist that you read before participating. It also has a FAQ, which newcomers may find useful.

This is where you can get Permission, talk off-topically about something, plug your missions or fics, and occasionally bring up badfic.

The people who visit the Board are generally excitable and friendly. They also tend to try and give you things, if you prove a vulnerable target. They especially love it when people who had left return back to the Board, and even more so if they return to the PPC itself.

History Edit

The PPC Posting Board was founded on March 12, 2003. It was located at http://disc.server.com/Indices/199610.html until 2008, when Server.com relaunched as YourWebApps.com, and at http://disc.yourwebapps.com/Indices/199610.html from then until October 31, 2019, when YourWebApps shut down the DiscussionApps service.

On October 13, 2019, in advance of the shutdown, the DoSAT Continuity of Operations Division (also known as Boarders Tomash, Delta Juliette, and Thoth) announced the opening of the New Board at https://www.plotprotectors.org/. This Board was custom-designed by COD to look and act as much like the original Board as possible, but with upgrades to security and performance. New features include a functioning account creation and login system, spam protection, the ability to edit posts, and tags for Permission requests, plugs, RPs, and more.

Archives Edit

In 2014, YourWebApps suddenly remembered that free DiscussionApps are limited to 25,000 posts[1] and cut the Board's backpages, which had previously stretched back to mid-2008, to September 2012.[2] In order to preserve posts older than that, Huinesoron and Tomash launched the Board Archives here and here.

T-Board Edit

See T-Board

T-Board is the PPC's backup Board, used for RPs and as a spam or server-issues shelter. It can be found here.
