Gforum Insider

I will be posting a series of threads detailing the history of various parts of Gforum. The first thread will be posted tomorrow and subsequent threads will be posted weekly on Tuesdays. There will be three total installments, and they'll be linked here when posted. The following is a list of titles and dates for each thread.

  1. The Early History of Project Gforum (September 6)
  2. The History of Version 3 (September 20)
  3. The History of the Gforum Epic (TBD)

Stay tuned.

I didn't know there was history to begin with.

It's been three and a half years. That's forever in internet-time. :Q

I've been running a forum... a SECRET forum... since 1999! THAT is like forever, because that was before the modern internet age began!

:Q

Of course... no one posts there anymore... but still. :P

So this GForum Insider... that sounds like some sort of magazine pay subscription thing.

Nah, just a series of threads. Although it'd be awesome if we did have our own magazine. :Q

Also fricking dammnit the "f" is lowercase!!! :| :|

If I have to deal with "S"pooie on this forum from people, you can certainly deal with a little effing around.

;)

But I always make sure to make it lowercase. :sad;

Spooie, we all know about your Transformer forum. Nothing new there. :P

(Also your name is the first word in the sentence. Embrace the capitalization!)

Yeah that's a good reason for that, but the f is always the second letter so no excuses! :mad;

Tell it to e.e. cummings.

Who? Is that a porn star?

The history will explain how this evolved from g4 right? I am still clueless as to how this came into existence or even more surprising, how I found it.

Yes. In fact the site's evolution is pretty drastic from its original purpose to what it is today.

Are you gonna talk about the awesome two weeks I was a mod on G4 but gforum lead to my demodding!? :Q

I may. :Q That was actually probably our first real scandal... Actually probably our only real scandal. :P

It was more than a scandal. We were infiltrated!

Wait, we were? :confused;

This should be good I guess. All I know is that you got banned and then this forum happened or something. That's what your bio says I think.

Hopefully there were a lot of epic behind the scenes moments with lots of backstabbings.

Uhh, maybe not quite so many. :P

Actually what happened is that I made this place, then got banned, then got unbanned, then got banned again because I was posting about the Gcast over there... It was weird. All of it will be spelled out tomorrow.

Yes, it's a porn star.

:disgust;

Andrex, did I not tell you the whole story? About the stuff we talked about on the "mod" only forum?

I'm trying to remember... trying... horrible memory sucks... trying some more... can't... I think... maybe? But I've forgotten all the juicy details.

I remember them!

I thought it was funny how serious they were.

You guys have secret forums?!?!?!?

I didn't think so... maybe I'm forgetting them too...

It's such a secret that I added it to the site without Trex's permission.

It's full of my shitposts and ramblings about Tales of the Abyss.
