Roliana is a forum-based avatar and role playing site.
With the emphasis on Literacy and friendly conversation it has become a very popular destination for people fed up with other types of communities.
Because of this, it has had to put up with accusations, mainly from Gaia Online users that it is a rip-off. The two sites use the same type of software phpBB including smilies that come as default with this software. The fact that Gaia Online wasn't the first site of this kind also escapes them.
