There was an overwhelming majority voting against reopening Romanum, but I suppose I see your point. Closing it did it's job and got us out of the writer's block we've been stuck in, so the question is, how long should work on them be suspended? Maybe that should go to a separate thread or a blog.
As for the rp, which I believe would be a great idea, what should it be about? Perhaps the Revolution? (Although, much more work needs to be done on the Revolution first...)
