Recent Project Redcap maintenance

Hello all and happy New Year!

I did an upgrade on Project: Redcap ( about three weeks ago. There were a couple of glitches with the upgrade but I think everything is sorted out now. If you noticed technical problems with the site recently, please try it again. I'm no longer directly involved in curating content for Project: Redcap but I am still doing the server maintenance. Let me know if you encounter any technical problems.

Thanks and happy gaming!


In the main page,, “language: box” is OOO.

I can't no more access french part of the site from here, on my side.

Thanks for reporting it. I'll look into a fix. It may take a few days.

Internal errors/Fatal exceptions here :éériques'Hermès’s_Rest’s_Cornwall

Apparently problems with special characters…

I'm afraid "a few days" was optimistic. I'm swamped with my RPG business for the next several weeks at least. I will fix this eventually but it will have to be when I have the hours to spend on it. If anyone would like to help, I'd appreciate it.

The Children of Kalesh page seems to not be avilable

All the errors have been fixed. I've had a lot going on in my life so "a few days" turned into six and a half months before I was ready to roll up my sleeves. Once I got started, the fixes weren't hard.

Thanks again for reporting the broken pages!


Thank you so much Andrew! :+1:

Thanks for the hard work, and for keeping Project Redcap up and well!


Please let it be known to all that due to a plethora of spammer accounts creating new spam pages in the last few weeks, editing for any site content on Project: Redcap has been suspended indefinitely. Note that this affects all users with legitimate accounts who may have contributed in the past.

The spammers are crafty and it's a challenge to keep up with removing with their dastardly spam pages on the site.

Additionally, few legitimate updates have been made to Project: Redcap in the last year. I'll be considering how and whether to permit updates to Project: Redcap in the future. More details will be shared once I've decided on a course of action.

Thank you for your understanding.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I've lost track of the site. Thank you so much for administering it.

It is a little sad that there are so few updates made these days. I trust you to make the best decision for the project's integrity.

It's a pity, but understandable. Project Redcap is too valuable to let it be corrupted by spam bots.

Hope editing will be open again at some point. Maybe through a curated list of users confirmed to be real humans? Also, a list of pages that need to be created might also help people wanting to contribute.

Maybe the users could be validated manually on this forum. Some donkey work for the owner, but I would be surprised if there are enough users to make it unbearable.

Thank you all for your understanding. The site is still usable as the definitive and venerable reference site for Ars Magica.

For now, I'm still in daily clean-up mode in between day job responsibilities. Once the site is cleared of inappropriate and non-relevant content and the spam accounts are purged I'll focus on the go forward plan for a process to update wiki pages.

Please continue to be patient.


Thank you for the update. I spent hours upon hours on Project Redcap, as a simply enchanted 12-13 year old in the 7th grade in 1996-7. I'm not so much on it since then, but it's definitely great to see the site still maintained.


Let us know if there's any way we can help with the clean-up.

I've removed the vast majority of the spammer accounts. Andrew and I will be discussing a strategy he has in mind for reviewing and authorizing new account creation. If the plan goes well then we should be able to re-open Project: Redcap for contributions from registered users.

Thank you all for your continued patience,



Thanks a lot for the update, and once again thanks for all the effort and work you put into Project: Redcap.
