Notes (2018)[edit]

I got a note today from DriveThruRPG:

Starting in February 2019, when you visit RPGNow, you will be directed to a similar page on DriveThruRPG.
It may surprise you to know this, but since RPGNow and DriveThruRPG merged back in 2006, they have shared all the same tools and digital inventory. On the front end, they looked and behaved like two separate sites, but essentially they have just been two faces of the same site for many years. The only real differences were the color schemes and logos.

How does this affect us? The Ludography pages all use "RPGNow" as a link for buying the books that are available on the service. The Template: InfoboxBook2 has special coding to support using a raw link from RPGNow and formatting it to make it look good.

In theory we don't have to do anything. The links will automatically redirect. But we may want update the template and then make a pass through the books to update the link to the correct places. Tjoneslo (talk) 19:03, 28 November 2018 (EST)

Sound wise.
