  • UJ nostalgia History thread/ Best Worst Funniest ugliest tragic whatever.

    With this place being so dead until the "owner" makes a second effort to fix this crap, thought it would be a good time to travel back down memory lane. Pretty much everybody joined at different dates and have different memories of the good and bad, tragic and funny. Now's the time to post them. Fire away. Me- looking back 10 years, to this date I have no earthly idea what all the "leet" crap was about. Before my time.

    I joined in March, 2003. If anybody said anything racist, they were instantly banned. That, among other things. Now there is no longer any moderation. I've been banned around 4 times, but I was the one wrongfully banned. It wasn't me.

            What did you get banned 4 times for? I got banned one time cause I pissed JD off for some reason (don't remember). Really got banned a few days later when he caught me running a troll account.

              I never did figure out what that was about. Went to the most ancient UJ threads available and everything for months was nothing but "Eric Gifford was leet".

                    Behind the VBulletin frontend is a database system, mostly probably MySQL. Somehow the apparently "leet" Eric Gifford managed to hack into the backend database, then overwrite all the database fields that contain post text data with that phrase. All our old posts were gone. I'm not sure what all other fields he might have corrupted, besides messing up join dates.

                    What I never understood is didn't (and doesn't) Hoover make and keep database backups? If not every day, once a week, once every ten days? Even if Gifford screwed up the current running database, a seven day old database backup is better than nothing. So we lose ten or a hundred posts, better than losing 20K of s.murph's valuable wisdom. MySQL comes with a backup system, a simple shell script dropped into crontab. Nothing complicated.

                    Not making and keeping good database backups are what killed BrainDonor's original ConfusionForums, though that was mostly the site's hosting company's fault.

                      I have been here long enough to remember the Cris Cornell dying thread. The thread title was fucking lame though.

                        I laughed the time that TomFoolery got Clayrock's password and logged into Clay's account and started a thread saying that he was angry at his girlfriend because she told him that she had sucked off one of his friends. So to get her back he went to lunch with his boss and sucked him off and let him splooge in his hair.

                        When I first started reading the thread, obviously, I'm thinking that clay is writing it. and the story is just long enough to start drawing you into this predicament he is in with his girlfriend cheating.... And then the whole thing just goes off the cliff.

                          I remember the good old days when diabolik would create a thread with just a link. Oh, man those were the days!

                            he created the "Drunk Girl" thread. Probably the greatest thread ever.

                              No shit. The epitome of UJ, if there ever was one.
