The Arch-Administrator is the chief executive of Refugia, often serving the purpose of being the keystone of the community around which stability and functionality is based. For all legal purposes which require a head of state, the Arch-Administrator may serve in such a capacity; however, the primary function of the role is to develop sites and services that the region can use and ensure the continuity of the community. Outside of the Refugia, the Arch-Administrator is responsible for all of the primary services provided on the CalRef Network, and may be blamed as appropriate for their shortcomings.
Although Refugia was founded in early 2019, the position of Arch-Administrator goes back much further. As Refugia's namesake community, Calamity Refuge, was founded on July 16th, 2008, an executive by this name has existed since that time, and arguably before. The current Arch-Administrator is Luca Vytherov, who has held this position since February 17th, 2018. She replaced Sylae Corell, who previously had served in the role since its inception, ten years prior.
Sites and services created for this community have typically been placed along a naming convention called Dot CalRef. Although different services have come and gone, the network remains and stands as a testament to Refugi ingenuity and community spirit. Content within these services relies on a comprehensive support network, which consists of the many writers and content creators within those spheres. All of their work adds up to paint a picture of what the community stands for.
