Does URPG support Yahoo messenger?
If you can find people on Yahoo, battles can take place there. But you'll find 99% of our population on AIM and a good part on Skype (though as far as I know a Skype battle hasn't happened since our new chat opened up, doesn't mean it won't).

Since this is apparently also a suggestion thread, I thought of an awesome suggestion last night while I was getting to sleep. Could we possibly have some sort of Anime-style battling, whether that be on the forums or on AIM? There could be different pay rates, and either a ranger well versed in cacling, or a ref well versed in rangering, could be deciding how moves effect the Pokemon based on how the trainer issues commands, natures, creativity in attack style, etc. Overall this would almost be a merging of normal battling and park battling, which I think fans of the anime would greatly appreciate.
Instead of having to blindly call attacks like "Surf", they could have more of an rp aspect, since/when the ref/person overseeing the battle could roll for a random terrain, and then c/p a description for the battlefield, complete with features like big rocks, boulders and the like for a mountain area, or tall grass or flowers in some parts for a fields area. This new dynamic battle option would force players to think on their feet, and would allow them to come up with some unique strategies. If adopted, the battle style could be known as "rp" battling, and the battles would have to be public move send, but could allow for either private pre-sent mons, or public ones chosen like in DPT.
editing after a talk with Bulba:
I know this is similar to dungeons, but instead of PVe, this would be pvp, which is a lot different. Furthermore, Bulba mentioned that the reason this was never implemented previously was that pe2k had an anime style battling feature already, so apparently those who ran urpg at that time, decided just to refer people to that. Since we're not on pe2k anymore, we could develop our own new battle style, similar to theirs.
What do you guys think? :)

Been playing since r/b/y.
SLC is correct. When I joined they were a thing, but nobody ever really used the style. I knew at some point an old ref once did like two of them, but that was the extent of it, and beyond that, have never really seen one. Due to the unpopularity and the mechanisms involved, they were eventually removed. I doubt they would be brought back.
The one that even created a roleplaying thread for us to join back when we had missions and everything.
Is it probable to look at bringing back more of a roleplaying based URPG?
Not so much with battles though...I think users are more interested in competitive battling than trying to lace their attacks with a beautifully worded sentence.
I think reviving Dungeons as light-RP Cooperative PvE content is a good start, and I'm gonna be working on that some more now life is starting to calm down a little. :)
Adventures sounds like it has great potential for heavier RP Cooperative PvE content too. :) Like a mini Tabletop game or campaign, mix of RP and battling. Could potentially have Anime-style battling in it, using Park-style RP for sections.
I'm planning a proposal for that for next year, hehe. :'3 I'd like to see more RP in the URPG too.
