Nevermind Zen, I found the threads; they were on the Archived forum.
Thanks for dropping in tribeof1. I may take another look over there. I have been to that site (I think I found a link someone had placed on either the PEG Forums or on Giants in the Playground). I had trouble making much sense of the site, but my read of it was that it looked kind of like some sort of Organized Play setup with some In-Character cafe type elements. Do they run more freeform games there the way that is common over here on Paizo? A lot of the intro pages list characters and such having to be approved by the "Site Administrator". I'm not interested in playing in or running a game where someone is micro-managing what I can or cannot do in a game I'm running. If I'm mistaken about that impression, and games can be run with a normal level of autonomy, please let me know, as it might make me more interested in giving the site another chance.
I'm pretty much on Paizo since I am established on the forum and used to the layout. I don't think I've actually played in a Pathfinder game in 2-3 years, come to think of it.
Explorers Unlimited, the Palladium Rifts sister site (or mother site, technically), has a reputation for being micro-manage-y, and does some sort of guided character creation, but I'm not sure about the details. There's nothing of the sort on SavageRifts.com, other than the various GMs hashing out and voting on house rules and custom items. That only applies to custom content that is going to be usable site-wide -- individual GMs can run their campaigns however they like.
There's a little bit of cultural difference (heavy use of Google Hangouts, for example, for OOC/table chatter), but I think the forum tools are better, once you get used to them, and I think it's probably the most active community for Savage Rifts custom content out there (certainly more so than the PEG forums, oddly). Again, don't mean to derail your thread, just wanted to offer the info.
