Title: Happy Extended April Fools!
Post by: Charon on 03, April, 2012, 07:08:35 PM
I'm sure you all know of it now, but April Fools FINALLY ended in Charon-Time. I'm currently getting everything back up to normal.

A few things:

 :Luna: The April Fools 2012 badge is still up! Feel free to buy it, since it'll be gone forever soon! (as in, at 9PM EST of TODAY soon!)
 :Luna: Anyone who had their name changed will be obtaining 5 coins! Whoohoo!
 :Luna: Anyone who was banned in any way will be obtaining an additional 3 coins!
 :Luna: Anyone who participated in either of these four threads: hOnK! (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=1966.0), NEW THEME (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=1959.0), WAR AGAINST TEMPLE OF KRADEN (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=1962.0), Scientifiy PROOF that the Earth is flat! (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=1963.0) has received a special badge for having fun with us! Check it out on your profile!

Please please please! If you have any problems with anything, notify me in this topic so I can fix them! I might have an oversight or two, so forgive me! :)

EDIT: Since some people seemed to be worried about the issue, if you also would like your old avatar back, please post a request in this topic. Thanks!

Oh Love, thanks for the coins. Even though you posted this thread, I'm surprised you didn't reveal the program you used yet. Hehe...

If I had wanted to. I could have created such a program myself quite easily in Visual Basic. chars A-Z are 41-5A and a-z are 61-7A. .. So you compare the charcode to check if it is one of those values. (Using inequalities.), then just go charcode And &HDF and then Or the position of the character (And 1)(<< 5).. which would determine if it is capital or not.

And surely you didn't mean it when you said I was pissing off everyone. http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac208/charleysdrpepper/bannedfromgshc.png - (Yes, I managed to screenshot this.) I believe it was only those couple:  You, and maybe leaf. Role ofcourse wanted this event over... and Salanewt, and many others (including me) may have thought it was going on for a bit too long as well. It's not good when a "joke" overstays its welcome. All you get is annoyance.

By the way, was I the only one who got "banned"? - When I said I'd PM everyone, I wasn't actually serious.  If I did, it'd only be those that I felt like telling...  And yes, Salanewt, in this case, would be my go-to person. Good thing I had access to him off-site, I guess.

I was pretty mad from how you were acting, I actually wanted to claim that it was a script we put in the PHP. I was actually thinking about building something that COULD force someone's posts to look in a peculiar manner, but I decided not to do it and did the conversion offsite. If you need further explanation, I don't mind answering any questions via PM, but your ban is different and I cannot go into details in thread. I can however tell you that it does not go against our current strike system we have in place.

If anyone really cares, the program is called "Troll Converter", I attached it to this post if anyone wants to use it. It converts your text into any of the 12 trolls from Homestuck. Convenient if you are trying to impersonate one...

I'd like to say that this was a thoroughly enjoyable april fools. I think I might even keep this name for a while ;p

Charon please don't do this next year. I honestly wanted to kill you.

EDIT: Made to look nice since I posted using mobile with no caps or anything.

Aye, there's a point where the joke stops becoming funny and you cross the line.

Don't do it again.

I, for one, enjoyed myself.  A pity some of you don't have a sense of humor.

You seriously banned people over that?! You know what... just, nevermind. My previous animosity towards you just came back with a vengeance. Talk about abuse of admin abilities. WTH, Charon.

I had tons of fun, thanks for doing everything necessary to make it all happen.

So, I just noticed that somewhere in there, I made my 1000th post. Well, whatever it was, I'm sure it was a good one. =p

Well forgive me for not having a sense of humor after my cousin was murdered.  Clearly I had crossed the line when I didn't wanna have to deal with AFD bullshit after the funeral and thus didn't get online when I got home on Sunday.  Obviously I was in the wrong to expect AFD crap to stay on AFD. >_>

/start Role rage and drama across the forums. ;)

Kain.....I just lost all respect for you. Making jokes about someone losing a family member is NOT how a Global Moderator is supposed to act. I had 8 year old admins on my site more mature than that.

Post by: Kain on 05, April, 2012, 05:20:04 AM
You think I'm joking?  That's a laugh.  How is anything in my comment a joke?  Seriously, give me an answer.  Also, which site are you talking about?  The clone of GSHC you made when you first arrived?  Why you have eight year old kids running it is beyond me, but I can garner a few guesses.

Honestly Frozen, hearing you say you have no respect for me is kind of relieving.  I have no respect for you either based on a lot of things you've done in the past.

I'm not sure if I have said anything on it so far, but I just loved April Fools this year! I'm not too sure if the bans were in everyone's best interests, but it was funny overall, and they were compensated for it when it all ended.

Oh boy, if this year was awesome, then will next year be epic?


Title: Re: Happy Extended April Fools!

Maybe you'll find out exactly how fun it is to get banned?  Then having to go use something like a proxy or something just to read comments as a guest.

If she has done it last year and this year, I'm sure there is a good chance she could do it next year, as well. Though, I think she should take some slightly different approach to it. Having to wait for the whole joke to end to come back is like.. meh.

>Implying we weren't banned last year for the slowpoke revolution

Or were you even around for that?

>If she has done it last year and this year,

This implies that y'all did get banned.

>Maybe you'll find out exactly how fun it is to get banned? 

This is a message replying to Salanewt, but I cannot remember if he was specifically banned or not. ... He probably did, actually. ... But I forget for how long.


Title: Re: Happy Extended April Fools!
Post by: Kain on 05, April, 2012, 06:03:32 AM
IIRC he was banned for like...a day or two.

Oh.. Chatbox: http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=shout_archive;start=11000 = He was active early that April 2nd.

EDIT:


April 01, 2011, 07:41:59 PM - 私の英語の貧しい人々に失礼 - ...What is this? Salanewt changed his avatar to Slowbro?... this... is good repentence... He will be unbanned!
April 01, 2011, 07:39:44 PM - Salanewt - I... see? Well, nice knowing you all!
April 01, 2011, 07:38:49 PM - 私の英語の貧しい人々に失礼 - And Drick too? Dear god, so many rebels! Must squelch the opposition!
April 01, 2011, 07:36:47 PM - 私の英語の貧しい人々に失礼 - SALANEWT! You removed your avatar... ALL TOGETHER? Why, that is the worst offence! You shall be banned as well!


So y'all had access to more things still?

I congratulate you Charon lol.. you successfully trolled us for a 2nd year ina row lol...

April FoOls is like christmas here... :P


Title: Re: Happy Extended April Fools!
Post by: Salanewt on 05, April, 2012, 03:36:00 PM
I think we just had access to profile information and the chatbox. The positive side to it all is that the relatively short bans don't really count for anything, and those who were banned get compensated for it afterward.


Yeah, lol. I wonder if this will happen for a third year? They just keep getting better and better!


Title: Re: Happy Extended April Fools!
Post by: Charon on 05, April, 2012, 04:53:32 PM
Well well well, look at this shitstorm brewing when I got sick.

Role, you disgust me. Absolutely disgust me. I gave you some leeway since I knew that you had a recent loss in the family, but that is NO EXCUSE to go around not only reporting posts that pointed out your bull, but to label Kain as LOLOLOL at your cousin's death. I don't care if you two were close or not, or yadda yadda yadda, Kain enjoyed April Fools, and that's IT. Stop using your cousin's DEATH as an excuse to get back at Kain. In addition, FrozenBlade, you disgust me as well for supporting this kind of one sided pity argument. Go to hell, both of you.

As I said before, Teawater, your ban is private, and while I won't count it towards our ban rules, I will not go into it in public. PM me if you wish to have more details. It's a fairly small matter but I feel that it would be petty to bring it up in public.

Holy hell, people.  Her cousin was murdered, and you're going to ridicule her because she's in a bad mood over it?  What the hell does it matter if she wasn't particularly close to them?  It's going to have an emotional effect regardless, especially after going to the funeral and seeing how everyone she is close to reacts to it.

Charon, you drug April fools out too long this year, plain and simple.  This @#$% storm is on you, you fucked up and your behavior right now is absolutely unacceptable.
1. Yes, some people think your prank overstayed it's welcome, I'm among them, deal with it in a mature manner.
2. I would love for you to PM me your justification for banning Teawater
3. The reporting system is supposed to be private, and anonymous.  You are breaking the level of trust expected from your position by talking about it publicly.
4. Do not tell people not to use the reporting system, that is the same as telling them not to tell us when they think someone is breaking the rules.
5.

Seriously?  Okay, that's way over the line, and seeing as we're already on #5 you're on probation as a regular forum member until I have time to figure what I'm going to do.


I do not have time for this crap right now, if it keeps up I will lock down the forums until I return from my trip next Monday.  Topic locked.
