What the hell happened?

Link Thread Closed
I'm sure the only one people will be shocked about is Kyoseron. The others were kind of predictable, as they hated both myself for banning them and the rest of SMWC, but were incapable of hacking the site themselves.

The whole situation is just a big bowl of rofl.
Scientific genius!

As the majority, I'm surprised about Kyoseron, being a full mod at this site involved in this event.

Actually, Kyoseron isn't a full mod anymore, she was demoted before this incident, didn't you know?

Anyways, the way Kyo reacted from being demoted really didn't seem like she was going to do anything, revenge-wise. She was actually kind of relieved iirc. So I don't think it was revenge.

On an unrelated note, did anyone else notice that the dates are 3 days behind? They are for me.
EDIT: I had to quote because I was ninja'd and my response would have made no sense otherwise.
EDIT2: nvm, my date setup was messed with so it ended up looking like I was "missing" 3 days.
I am the Eggman! My current Egglayout is to support Sonic Robo Blast 2. I'll change it sometime in the future.
Listen to the SRB2 Soundtrack! It's awesome! AWESOME I SAY! Also, PM me if you ever wanna do SRB2 with me.
What dates? The post dates? They're fine for me.

The rollback, remember?

Also, it really sucks people had to baww at SNN by fucking around the whole site. Why can't there be a drama-free SMW hacking community?

She had *asked* to be demoted, actually. She had said she had personal reasons for it.

There was more to it than this, but the reasoning is something I would rather not discuss. It did involve some backstabbery and lies though, I'll say that much.

Sorry, I couldn't resist
Very shocking on what happened. The egg joke for placement was rather funny...until I heard Kyo was involved. I was actually upset, mad, and confused on why Kyo would even do such a thing. She had been devoted to the site and always fixing things up, and then makes an attack? Why? I don't know. If Kyo is reading this in any way possible (if being a guest with no account works while IP banned), I thought what Kyo did was stupid and moronic, and nevver should have done anything against the site. She was a nice user, and then this...

And some others may have been expected, but I barely even knew a few of them. So...yeah.
My opinion,
THis site is full of motivated people that have no power...

The ASM workshops are simply a first step.

With the amount of publicity that Super MArio World Hacks have gotten due to Kaizo amoung other things, it only becomes apparent more people want to make more stuff.

However, when they feel that the mods and people high up are less then helpful. Discouragement and a taste for revenge replaces pure hope and love for personal expression in a world.

I don't think thats the reason it happened...
But I'm sure if the hackers were enjoying a high quality SMW hack made from inspiration and unrestricted imagination, I'm sure he could care less about destroying the integrity of the forum, but even support it.


These are simply thoughts.

The Atma-overthought:

It could also be an attempt to sow the seeds of fear. Not fear in the sense of "Arbe could easily destroy SMWC" but the fear of "If Kyo was involved, who else can/will Arbe recruit. How high up the chain can the corruption go?"

That... is the Atma-overthought.

SNN, if you need any help with anything, We're all behind you. I know you really don't know me, but PM me if there's anything you need.
I'm so shocked that Kyo done that! D:
yea, Arbe wasn't the main guy, well, he was, but there was someone that was also sort of a leader I heard, IDK who though. =/
I just can't get it past me that Kyo done that, I mean, she seemed like such a nice mod, she also was always doing the right thing, why would she do that? :(
Anyway, I saw alot of those guys probaly pulling a stunt like that, but Kyo, DarthRiko, and Kaeru, wow, didn't see that coming...o_o
meh
Some of them were kind of predictable like SonicBlue said, but I did not expect Kyoseron. o.o
Yeah. Kyo was the last person I'd expect to do something like this. When I first heard that she was involved. I didn't believe it. She was a great staff member, and was nice to everyone. And right now, I am very disappointed in her. :(
I guess sometimes you just don't always know people as well as you think you do.

TNR Who cares
Arbe Of course I'm not shocked lol
Memetchilove what
Snowshoe Random(only gained power for being on smwhc at the time)
Yoshiro Not shocked, during the attack he continuously flamed SNN (Not to his face though. Oly gained power for being on smwhc)
MWC what
ShadowNinjaNick This was kind of a major shock, he only participated because he just so happened to be on the channel smwhc at the time of the attack, which was kind of the "base" during it
MARL random (also this is the user TABBY-SAMA and only gained power from being on #smwhc at the time)
</div></div>
I gotta thank SNN big time for unbanning me, I did get Global mod from ArBe, but used it only to unban Quizler and try to unban others, but Yoshiro did something that made the bans irreversible until they expired. I was lucky to be in the channel during the attack, so I was able to see who was doing what. Some of the users only gained admin/global mod because ArBe was in Yoshiros channel, so if it wasn't for that then they probably wouldn't have been involved.

Edit: I remember saving the user Dooooomster from being permabanned after rereging, I just nuked his name and no one bothered to ban him. (He was banned as the regular him then again as Doooooomster1)

DarthRiko got really angry when we no longer allowed guest removal logs, which he had been doing a lot of up until then. He basically complained about how the SMWC staff is incompetent blah blah blah. DarthRiko bragged about how he was the one that deleted the majority of the files during the attack.

But yeah, this whole event was crazy. Kyoseron's behavior didn't surprise me that much considering her friendship with Arbe and her growing disinterest in SMWC. Still a shame to see her basically blow all the work she's done to the site, but no amount of music, hack or forum moderation excuses her behavior.

And yeah, Kaeru's been away from SMWC since last December, going from a good moderator here to a lobotomized Arbe follower. While I knew he was no longer affiliated with this site, seeing him participate in this was even more depressing. Heck, he was the guy that won the SMWC Level Design Contest last year.

Who knows what Kyoseron's motivation was besides Kyoseron herself? I can only imagine that for some reason she thought that trying to destroy the site was a good idea at the time. I can't say for sure if she'll laugh maniacally for the rest of her life, if she'll eventually feel bad about it, or if she already does.

I don't know what would drive a person to decide to try and take down something they worked so hard on. Kind of like spending a year making a building and then blowing it up. Except there are lots of people inside too. Maybe it's entertaining for you to watch it burn, but it's one of the most selfish things I've ever heard of. It takes a certain kind of person to put their own amusement over the interests of hundreds of other people.

If it was a personal grudge on a single person, that still leaves the other members on the site who suffered because of a personal vendetta. I can't say for sure what was going through Kyoseron's mind. Maybe she finds amusement in watching other people suffer like Arbe does. Or honestly believes that she's a diamond in the rough and is one of the only people that Arbe won't eventually manipulate and then cast aside. Maybe she's a fangirl who thinks Arbe's "cool" and is trying to be just like him. I just hope the effort she put into inconveniencing the site was worth being banned from an entire community and losing a lot of friends. Or maybe she never liked any of us to begin with and finds that last sentence utterly hilarious.

I hope the attackers also realize they put hours of work into "taking down" the site which was only a minor effort for Boom to submit a rollback for. In the end, there was some backing up and resubmitting, but nothing of value was lost.

Considering someone (I won't name any names, but they weren't on staff or endorsed by staff) managed to counterattack and take down the server that the information was being sent to, I'd wager the attackers lost more than we did. Maybe some of them will disagree, but I don't care. We can compare missiles all day long, but I do know we had a ton of fun screwing around before the reset. So thanks for the entertainment, Arbe and company.
Unfortunately, "How the mighty have fallen" fits appropriately.

I'd like to speak in Geno's defense. The only reason he was apart of it was because Arbe or someone else saw that he had that "BRING ARBE BACK" thing and assumed Geno was a supporter. In actuality, he was trying his very best to overthrow Arbe, but he had low staff powers and couldn't do anything. Me and him were on the same channel and he was freaking out and trying to fix things. I doubt it was a act because no offense intended, he sucks at faking things.

tl;dr, he was a staff during the attack only because he had BRING ARBE BACK in his signature. He was actually trying to stop the attack.


EDIT: In actuality, no, I can't prove his innocence. But I have some evidence above towards his side.
EDIT: Nice discussion on the IRC kinda kills my point, so yeah, this is this still mostly true, as far as I know- however he was in league with Arbe on this whole thing so nevermind.
Goes to show that no person on the internet is a stable secure friend. Our fault for trusting such fiends and look at the lol price that was tolled upon us.

no ones a friend unless you can see them straight in the face (including thy own self)...

To tell the truth, I did expect Kyo to go columbine one us after someone just passed her breaking point.

I'm rather glad I wasn't caught up in this myself, not that I had any knowledge of this happening.

also, please no more "OMG I would NEVER expect ____ person" I find it rather annoying in my personal opinion
I wonder what a HFD opcode would do in ASM...

I would like to vouch for Geno. After some talk on IRC, I think he should be given a chance.
