Title: New Rules
Post by: an0n on April 01, 2005, 03:07:12 pm
Now that I have achieved supremacy, I will hereby state the rules for continued peace and harmony on this forum.  Obey, and you will be blessed with safety and continued membership.  Rebel, and you shall come to ph33r my wrath.

1) As some of you have noticed, HLP now has a dungeon pr0n forum.  All former administrators shall be required to enter auditions of themselves in said forum, on pain of death or perma-banning, whichever is most convenient.

2) All the inactive hosted projects will be required to demonstrate significant progress within the next hour.  Failure to meet the deadline will result in the forum's deletion* along with the rest of the HLP rot.

3) Moderator and administrator positions will be available to selected peons, selected on a case-by-case basis.

4) I reserve the right to add rules to this post without further notice.

*Or, perhaps, opening  to public viewing.

Actually, they would. They usually are th'ones behind th'AFD jokes here.

The forums disappearin' are simple t'fix. They simply unhide th'forums, an' everythin' will be aft t'normal. SCP files are on another site, anyway, as are all th'other download links t'every other campaign.

If ye don't believe me, NW an' GTD Wolf were still accessible after they were closed down, though th'post counts suffered with their closing.

And, just in the event that you were panicking, the Campaigns forum is still there. SCP is the only forum that got deleted out of the Freespace section.

I'm not th'only one annoyed by this stupidity. I just came t'see it for myself, an' things are indeed bad. It's th'second o' April too (the forums use UTC/GMT), where's th'normal status? I never would have expected such immaturity from th'Admirals o' th'Black^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H (sigh...) adm1ns - occasional blunders etc. would be perfectly understandable, but outright sabotage?

...oh get over it. It's still april 1st for 3 more hours, because the forums are located in the US.

It's not sabotage, it's a prank. You should know better than to come to HLP on april 1st and get upset at stupidity.

Hellyou should know better than to get upset at stupidity on HLP anyway, the place reaks of it.

Just received email from Gamespy which states that HLP will be turned into planetbritneyspearsdancingsim.com tomorrow.  All FTP databases/MOD files not appropriate for tomorrow's new site will be deleted (i.e. all our files).

Point taken. And if it had been a joke, why does Styxx talk about 'an0n's hack attempt' in the Announcement?

Cause the statement was part of the joke. Look at the time it was posted.

First of April or not, it's an Announcement by an Admin, which MUST be serious, any time, under any circumstance. I wouldn't have been joking with Announcements, even if I were a complete newbie or an Admin.
Title: New Rules
Post by: karajorma on April 02, 2005, 06:17:42 am
I guess that's why you're not an admin then. You take yourself too seriously. :p

Are you really saying that deleting forums as part of the joke is okay but posting an announcement is taking it too far? :lol:

No, he didn't really. GS are tards regarding that particular configuration option for PHP, however.

It's a valid way, it's just not exceptionally quick. Nor legal in the UK.

What would be funny would be if the IRC story was true. :D

Heh, I don't know what's more amusing... yesterdays events or what people have been saying today?

Besides - do you really believe that we haven't backed it all up? One way or another - nothing has been lost.

Now if I could just see about persuading an0n to change my title back... :p

Whether it was part of the joke or not I dunno. But an0n posted to the effect he was trying to hack back into his old account.
Title: New Rules
Post by: aldo_14 on April 02, 2005, 05:33:49 pm
I would have hoped that any password for the sole (spare the Announcements/ HoJ) admin user would be something a bit more sensible than could be taken from a dictionary file (i.e. alphanumeric alternating case password); so I doubt an0n could hack in anyways, even if he tried.

:doubt: .....Gooober!!! :lol:

And just to reassure everyone worried about hosted project forums, we have a full backup from March 31st waiting to be restored. GS is being nice and responsive about our dynamic4 FTP password issue, and I expect to have things resolved.... err, in 12+ hours (next time I'm back home - a man's gotta work, y'know!).

Meantime, uhh.... get to know one another better! Yeah! Or FRED. FREDding's always good. :D
