If the first post was in April 2001, how come the earliest joiners to the boards (e.g. Drakey has "Registered: Sep 2001" and is "Member #7") didn't join until around September 2001?

Second incarnation of the boards. We started on Ikonboard, but moved to UBB in September due to a variety of minor bugs (most of which UBB tends to exhibit) and also because Spidweb decided that although Ikonboard was free, it's protection against hacking was inferior.

The first Spiderweb forums were established on March 23, 2001. Those would be the real good ol' days, although Spiderweb-related antiquity involves several communities that predate Spiderweb's boards.

—Alorael, who actually thought that the BEEP appeared only a week or so after the forums were opened. Still, it was two years ago, so it's hardly surprising that he's wrong.

Well, it's only three weeks after. Remember that we initially only had General and Tech Support ...

Hey! Don't forget Hints.

--------------------
We're all amazed but not amused
By all the things that you said you'd do.
You're much concerned but not involved by
Decisions that are made by you
But we are sick and tired of hearing your song,
Telling us how you are going to change right from wrong,
'Cause if you really want to hear our views,
You haven't done nothin'.

I thought we had an Announcements forum from the beginning too. Probably wrong though.

Hints and Announcements didn't come until the next day - urchin suggested Hints in about the third post on the boards. BoE was next, and then more game forums.

Do you know if they are going to make a seperate G2 forum, or just combine G2 and G1?

Well, I'll probably just amend the GF board title and description as soon as I get the GF2 beta.

BEEP stands for Bush Enacts Exile Plan, or something close to that.

Nah, I think PBR means what B.E.E.P. IS. Like the actual content. And if he doesn't, that's what I want to find out. So post it if you can, Drakefyre!

Here's the first post. I'll have more up later. All typos remain.

- News item: Bush to enact "Exile" punishment system

-- Posted by Scorpius on 6:07 pm on April 12, 2001

REUTERS, WASHINGTON D.C.

"In a bid to expouse his new 'kinder conservative' attitude, President George W. Bush has proposed to bill that would revolutionize the judicial system if passed. The bill would eradicate capital punishment, instead replacing it with exile to a system of caves far beneath the earth's surface.

"Bush claims to have been inspired by an aging shareware title called 'Exile: Escape from the Pit'. Bush then scrapped plans to complete the Star Wars missile defense program and re-directed America's budget surplus at the creation of miles of underground caves 36 miles below Louisiana.

"Bush's first move regarding the Exile system was to send down the Clinton family. Republican critics have stated fears that Hillary could strike out from beneath the earth's surface and wreak a horrible vengeance. When prompted by this concern, President Bush mumbled incoherently.

"What will this new system of punishment bring? Probably another lawsuit. Only time will tell."

Today is not the day for either. But I'll put up more BEEP soon.

Please, do not say things like that. As we all know, members have been warned for saying *BEEP*

What? Members can't say "Beep?" Well, that sounds kind of like bigotry to me! What about all the members with campy 1960's robot family backgrounds? All their parents probably knew was "Beep." Seems very narrow minded to me.
Besides, I'd like to see more Beep too!

We Demand more BEEP!

I don't know about more BEEP. I'd settle for some of the original as a start.

—Alorael, who thinks there's a large difference between beep and the BEEP. Once is a sound effect, the other is a sound plan for dealing with the dregs of society.

You bumped a topic that was a fortnight dead. As such, this topic must be locked and you must be warned never to do it again.
