1. Downtime notice - Oct. 17, 2017

    Well, it's a permanent downtime. After 22 years of service it's time for a final goodbye. Our live production servers will be taken offline on October 17th. The simple fact is that there are plenty of better ways to get the secrets hidden in games and connect with other gamers. There are plenty of Youtube channels and Twitch streams that will show games played at their best, something that plain text and screenshots can't convey. If you want to connect to other gamers outside of those services, there are plenty of Discord servers that offer a direct and engaging community experience.

    Please visit our friends at GameFAQs.com or IGN.com for information such as codes, guides, reviews, etc. They're the real deal and have always been respectful and honest about how they operate. Our ghost pages can be found on Archive.org for those times that you'd like to take a look back at how things were.

    Thanks to everyone that has contributed content and time managing our community, and especially to you, our dear visitors!

    Our last words: "Up ,Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B, Select, Start"

    WOW! That was fast! I'm impressed. Was it unanimous? The topic has been whisked away into the Terra Incognita of the Admin forum.

    Congratulations to The Unwanted! :rock:

    You've probably checked by now, but yes it went fast. If that gives you all an indication of how it was going.

    I'm trying to think if we've had any Australians as mods before. None spring to mind.

    Whore for sure.

    I think there was at least one other but I can't recall his name at the moment.

    KSD and Vps were in the neighborhood (in the vast, South Pacific sorta way).

    Actually the more humaliating thing was what happened in the Mod Forum BEFORE he was demodded. Ahhh I wish you guys could see THAT one.

    I had to double check the thread. I knew I remembered him saying he quit:

    It's even more hilarious knowing he got demodded.

    And then he came back a few months later pretty much pretending like it never happened.

    His overreaction to an April Fools joke made that thread.

    It was awesome. Those two guys thinking that they were freedom fighters leading the resistance against the GW staff. It was humiliating.

    At least neither of them created a GW court case against me for being an "abusive administrator" that time.

    So many people have embarrassed themselves round here. It's hilarious. I bet there's still people who believe that you're Al.

    Because you are. :paranoid:
