so i went forum digging today. and i was like...holy crap i remember all these people. i also realized how retarded half (actually make that 99%) of the topics i've ever created are. not that that's changing.

anyway, it was crazy. just a quick list of some peeps that i remember, not including those from before i was here obviously:

Frenchyd
samnmax
gb122
al-backfromthebigwhoop
carl ****t...i mean shutt
meksilon
alia
captain andy
orca wail
roy...and roytordes'babe
acrylic
coj
deadmeat
remio
rufio
ernil
mr.burger
zoom rabbit

darth groovy still uses lf, but not here of course.

niko and yufster drop by once every few months.

natty showed up recently.

and i also managed to remember the good ole djg incident, as well as the awards that yufster and i hosted...and that i rehosted (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=143262) again later since we messed up the first time. fealiks was a monster the second time around, he won like 5 awards. of course they were "stupidest user" and "most newbie-ish non-n00b" and stuff.

good times here at the harbor. we need to get more people over here.

Mole, remind me of the djg incident. I was definately here, and may have even been involved, but for the life of me can't remember.

Wasn't that when everyone changed their personal user text to DJG, and then the admins changed other people's to DJG as well, and all these people were like "who's DJG!?!?!"

Also to remember: Greg D being a total n00b lolz - oh noes and all that hillarity. Good times!

Joshi
08-27-2006, 12:58 PM
Ah yes indeed... DJG...*shudder*

Exactly. And then I got really pissed, and I think Natty did too. Then I went to Aresen for a while and then came back eventually, lucky for all you guys ;P

Actually I think that kind of crap happened several times. But whatever.

I remember when we had that RPG/Battle thing and the store and stuff. And everybody gave all their points to Thrik. And you could make your own bars or something like that.

And now we're stuck talking about Myspace.

Joshi
08-27-2006, 04:31 PM
We gave them to Thrik?! I'm sure it was someone else, and people started getting really annoyed about it.

Fealiks
08-27-2006, 05:39 PM
when did DJG happen?

Oh and Mole, it was "Most n00b-ish None-Newbie" thankyou very much.

Joshi
08-27-2006, 05:51 PM
Reminds me of a recent ctrl-alt-delete.

Das Mole
08-27-2006, 07:09 PM
1) yes people gave them to thrik. i personally never did, but i remember he had something ridiculous like over 10000 at one point, or maybe even 20.
2) djg took place maybe two years ago, maybe more? i don't remember.
3) actually that's wrong too. it was "most newbie-ish non-newbie". kthxbai.
4) haha...oh noobs.

speaking of noobs, and as a tie-in to the myspace thread, i actually know someone whose url is myspace.com/ipwnalln00bs. she actually sits two seats away from me in my psychology class. fun stuff.

Joshi
08-27-2006, 07:22 PM
Um... Thrik, any chance you could confirm this? Only I've got the real strong feeling in my gut that I gave my points to someone else (and for the record, I gave them all to this person) and that he ended up with a riduculous amount of points.

Ray Jones
08-28-2006, 03:44 AM
Haha. I remember when Thrik gave Das the custom title "I'm a prick" XD

Thrik
08-28-2006, 04:25 AM
Haha, yes, it was me. I've still got the hundred or so "Somebody has donated points to you!" PMs in my inbox. :D

I used them to change a load of people in the Star Wars forum's titles to "DJG".

Joshi
08-28-2006, 07:02 AM
Oh okay, fair enough. I'm just a bit confuzzled then. But yeah, I guess I gave all mine to you then.

Das Mole
08-28-2006, 05:30 PM
Haha. I remember when Thrik gave Das the custom title "I'm a prick" XD

I forgot about that. I think that was before I had 1000 posts, wasn't it? =\

So I couldn't change it back. Oh well.

Fealiks
08-29-2006, 12:14 PM
Soon I will have that power... I just don't know what to change it to... Thrik, how about you give me a custom title? As a sign of our love? Come on, I need motivation to get to 1k.

Joshi
08-29-2006, 12:28 PM
In other words, you need motivation to spam... I'm not sure if Thrik would abide.

Fealiks
08-29-2006, 12:32 PM
Not spam, contribute to a healthy discussion about hard boiled eggs, myspace, hottopic, various films and other random nonsense. Oh, and spam.

Thrik
08-29-2006, 12:40 PM
Oh, go on then.

Fealiks
08-29-2006, 12:50 PM
Hahahahahaha! It would be funnier if it wasn't true...

Skinkie
08-29-2006, 07:48 PM
Nobody ever remembers me, maybe I just haven't disapeared for long enough

Joshi
08-29-2006, 07:50 PM
And you are?

Skinkie
08-29-2006, 07:54 PM
I am you're long lost son, buy me presents to make up for the years of neglect.

Joshi
08-29-2006, 07:56 PM
Don't you need eye contact for that kind of hypnotism?

Ray Jones
08-30-2006, 04:19 AM
I forgot about that. I think that was before I had 1000 posts, wasn't it? =\

So I couldn't change it back. Oh well.Yeah, I remember the lovely my new "cutsom" title thread. I think I changed a lot since then.. :dozey:
It seems back then you also could use points to buy a custom title for yourself or someone else. I think it was thousandanythingandthelike points per title.

And Skinkie, you should seriously consider introducing yourself before you start posting in a new forum/community. The only reason you're not banned yet is that I'm not a moderator of these boards. I fact I'm not a moderator whereever you go, even at home where I set up my own forum for sheer fun purposes I only got simple user rights. So I cannot ban myself there either, but I should because I did not introduce myself there too. So, in the end, I deleted it all, because I couldn't stand it anymore. But if Neil is going to see this, you're in trouble, man.

Yer, Neil, I know. I talk about the other one.

Joshi

I remember the points system generating a lot of spam, but people also got pissed because other people were changing their custom titles in the way Thrik did to Das, (except they did it with points instead of Godly Admin priviledges) and were never able to change it back until they had enough posts or points.

Ray Jones
08-30-2006, 09:51 AM
Thrik had no admin pws in 2003.

I thought is was pretty fun. I never would have gotten a custom title that quick. The first ever was "Monkey" then "Threeheaded monkey" XD lol. Nah. I think "Psycho posse clown" was cool.

Joshi
08-30-2006, 09:54 AM
Hmm, so he didn't.

Ah the old Monkey Island Forum Ranks. Wannabe Pirate for anyone under ten (or thirty) posts I think, then Monkey, then Three Headed Monkey at around 500 I think. and The Custom title, but I'm not sure what you got if you didn't choose a custom title.

Good times.

Fealiks
08-30-2006, 10:00 AM
I can remember that. In the star wars boards it started as bantha fodder I think but I can't remember. Why did they abbandon that?

Joshi
08-30-2006, 10:04 AM
They didn't abandon it, it got lost in the Forum upgrade and no one's had a chance to incorporate them back in (there's a rather long thread about it in the feedback forums).
Whether they come back or not is totally up to the Admins, but until then, people below 1000 (except Fealiks and Random admins that hardly ever post) are stuck with Registred User. :/

Ray Jones
08-30-2006, 10:09 AM
Just to clearify that, good times are when you can say premature ejaculation three times quickly without being ready before you finished saying it.

That or Fealiks is not a registered user at the forum you're posting in.

Fealiks
08-30-2006, 11:29 AM
Hey I'm only ten posts away from changing it back... yay.

Ray Jones
08-30-2006, 11:41 AM
I think you're only 9 posts away from getting your postcount frozen in.

Fealiks
08-30-2006, 11:43 AM
Don't put ideas in Thrik's head...

Ray Jones
08-30-2006, 11:50 AM
I'm certain that, concerning this, there's literally nothing to put there without creating redundance.

Fealiks
08-30-2006, 01:37 PM
If he freezes it at 1,000, that wouldn't be as but still would suck.

Joshi
08-30-2006, 01:40 PM
freezing at 999 would be hella funny. I'm not too sure if it's possible though, possibly all he'd be able to do is continuously alter your post count to 999 all the time, but that would be tiresome.

Alien426
08-30-2006, 01:55 PM
I just imagine this elaborate script that kicks in every time Fealiks posts. Before returning to the thread it would display a message telling him that his post count was reset to 999 and also half a screen of ne-ner-ne-ners.
Someone should also alter his avatar and prevent him from using his CP.

Joshi
08-30-2006, 01:57 PM
I think we're bordering on the Mean here.


Not that I have a problem with that.

Thrik
08-30-2006, 02:31 PM
You guys are mad. I'd never mess with someone's post count. ::

Joshi
08-30-2006, 02:42 PM
Yes, and on a completely unrelated topic, I'd like to give a big, warm Monkey Island welcome to our newest member, Fealiks!

Das Mole
08-30-2006, 07:31 PM
Yeah, I remember the lovely my new "cutsom" title thread.

i almost vaguely remember that. i should go back and check.

Fealiks
08-30-2006, 07:34 PM
You wankers...

Thrik
08-30-2006, 07:53 PM
lol

Fealiks
08-30-2006, 08:01 PM
Oh crap I didn't know you could re-set it... I thought it was permanant, now I feel bad.... you may want to change your email adress... and don't ever visit matchmaker.com

Ray Jones
08-31-2006, 04:49 AM
Oh my.. just for a short moment.. you should start thinking.

Joshi
08-31-2006, 09:44 AM
Always happens at the wrong time doesn't it?

Ray Jones
08-31-2006, 10:43 AM
IF wrong time = never, yes.

Fealiks
09-01-2006, 02:41 PM
If the wrong time is never then the right time must be always, meaning there is no wrong time, it is always the right time. If it is always the right time, it can never be the right time as there is nothing to oppose it to, so there is no wrong or right time, therefore I think an average amount.

Ok, clever clogs, what does 0.999(9) equal?

Das Mole
09-01-2006, 05:59 PM
it actually equals 1. if you do that whole multiply by 10 thing and then subtract them from each other and whatnot.

i learned that sophomore year and i was like....whooaoaaooaooaoaooooooaoaaaaaa......

Ray Jones
09-04-2006, 05:32 AM
Ok, clever clogs, what does 0.999(9) equal?it actually equals 1.

Wrong. There is no such mathematical term like 0.999(9).

In "theory" it would equal 3*0.333(3), which equals 3*(1/3) which equals 1.

My former math teacher would so kill you, Joshi, for using infinity in an equation...
Even worse. According to Joshi's misled understanding of infinity, infinity=0.
This means he has just created an the runtime error: division by 0!
(TUUM-TUUUMMMM-TUUUUUMMMM!!!!)

On the other hand, and according to my perfect understanding of the infinity issue, im totally fine with this equation. ..


Ooooops, looks like I've just created some kind of paradox im my head. -Poof!-

Alien426
09-04-2006, 08:01 AM
Why should 0.999(9) equal anything but 0.999(9)?

Ray Jones
09-04-2006, 08:35 AM
That would be another question, and a good one, btw.

Fealiks

Yeah, but I was hoping Joshi would get it... Because everyone knows Joshi is quite the mathematician

Okay, at what point, ever did I say infinity = 0? Our entire argument originated from that equation I posted above which simply suggests what is written.

Hm. I never read you posts, Neil, I just state things about you I simply made up to make you look stupid.

Here's the thread in question (http://lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=127998&page=1), just in case anybody wants to know how smartclever wI am.

And again..it's all Zoom's fault!!

Joshi
09-05-2006, 11:07 AM
By reading that post, I think we can safely say my Theory decided to go down hill when Zoom first replied after my "theory".

But now i have a new theory, Ray is phychic:
joshi.. it's not that i understand every of your posts.. ;) .. but what can i say.. nothing? :D

Posted before I came up with my theory...

His last post was on a thread (http://lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=157068) he started on these boards which proved categorically that there are no females on this board
