I was browsing through the tabs on the main site, and came across the category "Hosted Holonet Sites".

On the menu below it has:

Arrow Olsen's Supplies
Arrow Death Valley Inc.
Arrow Scrawpin and Remceeted Corp.

but you can't click on them.

Loc Taal should probably be the person answering this, but I'm here now...

From what I can tell (because I can click on the links) they are just web sites hosted on rancorpit.com posing as Star Wars businesses selling services, equipment, vehicles, or whatever for game resources.

As to why you can't click on them... that sounds like a technical issue for you. The links do open new windows, so if you have a pop-up blocker, it might be blocking them. Or it might be a javascript or browser issue.

If all else fails, the URLs for each link are here:
Olson's Supplies: http://www.rancorpit.com/hosted/olsons/index.htm
Death Valley, Inc.: http://www.rancorpit.com/hosted/dvinc/DVW.swf
Scrawprin & Remceeted Corp.: http://www.rancorpit.com/hosted/srcorp/index.htm

thanks for the info/links/help, Esjs.

BTW, some of the other links that don't work for me are:

Arrow Dice Roller in "Utilites"
Arrow Book List in "West End Games Info",
Arrow Forums in "Feedback"

Rest of the links are fine for me.

Since you posted both messages in the Forums in "Feedback", how is it that the link doesn't work? All three open in a new screen for me, so could they do so for you?

Do you have a pop-up blocker? If so, you may have to tell it to accept items from The Rancor Pit.

Unbelievable...

When I browsed the website with Mozilla Firefox , it works perfectly. Guess I'll be using Firefox from now on...

No need to panic. Laughing

Yup, you're correct, Esjs. Olson's Supplies and Scrawprin & Remceeted Corp. were created by Scrawprin. Death Valley Inc. was created by another friend of mine who isn't registered on the forums.

Ryc_Andersyn, all of the links you mentioned open in new windows. I'm guessing that it's some sort of issue with a pop-up blocker or something.

The reason for Olson's Supplies was an excuse to list equipment from all of the sourcebooks, but I was never ambitious enough to finish it. Scrawprin & Remceeted Corp. was to be an excuse to list custom vehicles and equipment, but in that case, all of my custom SW RPG stuff was stolen when our home was broken into (the material was in a laptop bag and the burglars snatched it along with other more important items).
