CPN and by connection of course CPN Groups was a big stepping stone for me. Finding out that MSN Groups was going to be closing was a major blow, by that time I had spent 8 years or so RPing and building my RPGs and communities on MSN Groups. With that news there was only one option, make my own. I really was out of my league when all of this started but somehow in the end I made it all work. The idea being that CPN Groups would be just like MSN Groups in structure but with more modern features, that meant that the actual group design would be similar to what MSN Groups had looked like, but with my own flair. Looking at this screenshot you can see how close the structure was to MSN Groups but it brought in the CPN theme and worked out really well for us while it lasted. I have some different color themes (black and pink) that were going to be released a long with an assort of others as premium themes, I’ll post some screens of them in the comments section.

It really was nice. IIRC it closed because of cost – what was the price tag on keeping it open per month?

We were paying with tax close to $50 a month for our VPS. We tried to move one time to make that better but we had a lot of issues reconnecting all the databases after the transfer and so we moved back (at great expense through all of this) We had to have a VPS though because we were using a ton of ram on all the database connections and the directory cron job updates and caching. I never really minded paying for it, lots of people helped with donations and google ads helped some too but I just didn’t have the help I needed to run the place.
