What the hell happened?

What, what, WHAT?! This is an outright lie! The thread specifically states that complaints should be sent to me by e-mail. And guess what? I haven't received a single one.

While it may not magically remove every problem as soon as you mention it, talking about things has been proved to be a good start many times throughout history. Of course I won't immediately kick a staff member off the team because of a complaint, but if you refrain from telling me your feelings, how is the staff ever going to improve?

I've sent you an email about this :P
Follow me on Hermitscape for random bits of game design talk and pixel art, or even request something for me to draw.

EDIT:
I think that's a rerereg.

I don't think Global Mods can permaban, but I may be wrong on that.

From first hand experience I don't think they can. Or it could have just been the fact that I was permabanned at the same time of being in power.

More than likely that is the problem, I sent one to you when I first posted in that thread and other threads about a month or two ago.

That still doesn't change the fact that you lied. I have never insulted anyone as a result of contacting me to complain... because, as I already stated twice, I never received any complaints.

I'm not trying to start a fight with you Kieran. I know that I sent you that e-mail about the staff complaints, but if you choose to say that I didn't, well there is no way for me to change that.

Well, considering that Kyoseron (Yes, I am surprised too) was apart of the attack, if she feels guilty about this and decides to come back, would you let her?

I have my own reasons for wanting to hack this site, but what would that do for me in real life? Just getting an ADMIN access to see what they can do? It is stupid, a waste of time. This is just a site dedicated to some game! SO WHY! All you are ever going to do is hack it, it stays down a few days, and then it comes back up, so why even try! I would like to be an admin or mod just like everyone else here (yea, I said it), but I would not go as far as bringing down this site, plus, I don't even know how to hack a site b/c I never even bother, it would do me no good in real life, power on the internet can be just a waste.

@Kyoseron (if she ever gets a chance to read this)

It is a pure shame to go and do this, you were one of my favorite MODS. But, I never trusted ppl by reading posts, only actions. If you do feel sorry about this and wanna make things right, why not go to SNN on the IRC (What is this IRC thing) and maybe apologize, you probably got pissed at something and just wanted to share your anger, happens alot to me. I never thought you would do this. Oh well, nothing I can do about it.

@ADMIN

If you read the 2nd paragraph, well, dont think of me as a supporter for hacking sites, I don't even know how, I am just pointing out how USELESS it can be.
Your layout has been removed.
If no matter how badly they damage the site, we could use a rollback, then there's almost no reason to attack.

Arbe doesn't really have a reason why :P

I was sure someone said Arbe's boredom got to him and he just hacked the place. I'm not sure if it was said, but I was sure I had heard it from somewhere...
I think S.N.N. said once that Arbe hacks the site for the lulz.
Wow, I miss all the excitement.

Ok, I didnt really know anyone involved in the attack but I am pretty amazed Kyo was in on this. Well, maybe not that amazed. Anyways, I think a better way to really look at this is that we are a community with strict rules. Rules that not everyone agrees with. I personally have found some to be a bit harsh but follow anyways. If anything this attack has shown us that even though we came under attack we can recover and grow stronger because of it. There will always be those who try to bring us down but together I think we can be stronger and better than those against us.

Note to the Admins: I would seriously recommend finding some "hackers" that would be willing to test all the security holes in the site and work toward preventing future attacks.

That was it. SNN had said that before.

But why here? Why not hack anywhere else?

...or did he intend it to be a pun to hack the community? :|

Let me rephrase that: There is no reason at all to attack.
meh
@nintendofreck: Some of the rules may be pretty strict, but a damn dictatorship is far better than a flat out chaotic hellhole.

But you're right, it just shows that we can overcome anything they do.

@Red Chameleon: I don't really know. Maybe it's just because here just came to his mind first. Maybe.
Well, I have a few things I want to say too.

#1: Ok, I am not the least bit suprised that anybody would go and attack this site... I know I did once, and that was for joking around. But, you know, things, machines (I like upholding the fantasy that I am a Mechanical Scorpion, and no body say otherwise) and people change over time, I know that. Now, I said I wasn't surprised, I didn't say I wasn't disapointed. I am disappointed that Kyoseron would stoop as low as attacking the site, let alone asking Arbe. Well, that is the first thing I wanted to say. Now for the second.

#2: Now, here is what I don't get. When I spammed the site, my punishment was first Permaban... then IP banned. Now here is the question that this comes up to. Why not IP ban the Reregs, (unless that was already tried) it would or should help a little. So, if they wanted to say anything, they would have 2 options.

#1: They would need to go to a friends house and post from there.
#2: They would need to buy a whole new computer, for every computer has it's own address.

Solution for both, Perma and IP Ban them from that. Ha, it would be a never ending Cycle of Cyclone Turture, Bahahahahahaaaa. Those users would suffer for as long as they live. That would be my dream cometrue, seeing those that attacked this site have regrets hang over thier heads for as long as they live, now that is a way to hurt somebody.

You know, I'm actually thankful for what the mods and admins do. They ban somebody for being banned, and that banned user has only himself to blame... thus, lingering thoughts hang over thier heads, and they'd have a hard time getting to sleep. I just love it when banned people are hurt like crazy! *Maniacal Laugh again*

EDIT: Now that I come to think of it, Kyo did help me out at times... it is very disapointing to see her go. I'm not all that surprised, b/c these things hardly surprise me any more. I hope Kyo comes back.
seriously, i really can't believe that kyoseron was in the arbe's part!
she ever greeted me and just for this i'm really disappointed >:(

if stop them to trying to derstroy a site would be easy... unfortunately, it isn't.

i really don't understand why someone must do war with a site, even, dedicated to "Super Mario"!!
this is immature, in my opinion.
i don't understand: why? why? why?
even if sometimes (in irc) some administrators made me a bit angry for little offenses, (no offense to you) i could think to leave the site, but never, hack it for revenge O_O
when i was banned, i realized my error, i didn't search revenge!

also, if hacking (nor romhacking) is illegal (i'm pretty sure), well, you don't know that you can be in trouble with the laws, even if the laws doesn't know about milliards of peolpe in the world, there is someone that hacks this site.
otherwise, if i wrong, i dunno, the mine is just inexperinece.

That's where proxies come in. They can just change their IP, like arbe does.

I could not agree more. Very true statement there, Dinomar.
