the mods are racist thread is pretty well known, definitely not a low tier thing. especially since there are already some very obscure stuff on there. 99% of src users know nothing about @Starsmilley , speedruns.com, or the "ban button" leak

ban button leak... that sure was an unforgettable day

Of course, @Starsmilley is such an elusive topic that even I, as knowledgeable of these forums as I am, hardly have broken the surface of WoweeSmug

Setting your page url to "0". DO NOT RESEARCH

 
  DareDare

Setting your game page url to certain things has interesting consequences.

The real reason Upmine Struggle has a settings site theme.

GoldenEye was released on XboxLive in 1972

@Merl_Merl_ Sort by oldest games and look at Goldeneye's release date. Look at your settings and see that Upmine Struggle has a site theme option even though it only has two players. Go into a game you moderate and set the url to "0". Or setting it to things like one letter characters with a use with that character will break the search function. Not sure why none of that makes sense? Especially when, in an iceberg, you don't explain things in the title of said thing?

I plan to put the finished iceberg into video format with explanations, like other iceberg chart videos. I need to know what everything is before I add it

From the picture that is already on this forum. The iceberg looks good.

Yeah but when you look at stuff like the SMB64 Iceberg, the listings are intentionally vague.

MichaelChillino is not affiliated with Michael Chillino the SoundCloud artist. They simply both have the same username and profile picture.

MichaelChillino is the reason 2FA is required to be turned on for all game moderators. In like 2018, he got ahold of some game moderator’s accounts and vandalized quite a few games. One game’s leaderboard was changed to resemble T-Series. The game name was also changed to T-Series. He got banned and still is banned. Not long after, 2FA was implemented to be required for all game moderators.

damn i thought i was smart, though yeah i think i heard about the hackings before but i wasn't on the site yet

 
  HiHi

I don't know exactly why but it seems like the user @anonymousanonymous was actually hard-coded by Pac such that you cannot change your name to it, despite it not breaking any rules. I'm pretty sure it's the only name in the database that's not invalid and yet you still can't change your name to.

@HiHi Can you even change your username to an exist account?
This will practically delete the old account.

 
  HiHi
(edited: )

Yeah you can, if they got no runs submitted and haven't logged on to the site for at least 6 months.
For invalid names, even if they meet both conditions you can't change your name to them though. But @anonymousanonymous is a perfectly legal name, it doesn't break any rules and it meets both conditions but you still cannot change your name to it.

 
  Oreo321Oreo321

Maybe there is also a condition for never posting in the forums, as well as never submitting a run?
@anonymousanonymous has 1 forum post.

 
  HiHi

There have also been several names that have been claimed by users that were deleted from the database, with no traces left whatsoever.

I only know of 1 such name and that is TASvideos. If you try to look up the user @TASvideos you won't find a single profile with that name, however I got sent this screenshot a while back that confirms the creation of the account.
