Digging around I'm seeing hints of 3 seperate migrations. And a lot of registration in October 2005

You should also put up the date that Cadhulk was born.

And to think I found all of this ORP juiciness with a random search.

Or...maybe it wasn't so random...after...all.

It was a D&D forum that lots of the original members of these boards came from in order to play some PBPs. It now exists as Dragon Avenue after the original owner sold the old forums and things kind of all went down the shitter.

These are the registrations during Spamwar II. Note that Team Admin were sorting through them by hand to find any real people who had registered.


Date Number of Registrations
September 2008 23
October 2008 577
November 2008 1021
December 2008 1229
January 2009 1160
February 2009 41

Clearly Spamwar II was 3 times worse than Spamwar I. That means Spamwar III, when it happens (in a few months, if the schedule is maintained) will lead to a registrations per month peaking around 3600.

Good luck with that.

No, no. The spambots have learned a valuable lesson; it's not numbers, but quality. So the new strategy is to register a few new members, have them get involved in several games, and then once we're established we start innocently mentioning a few products.

I mean they. They start mentioning a few new products. Sorry, slip of the tongue.

...

I'm not a spambot. Really, I'm not.

Incidentally, has anyone else noticed how tired you can get while perusing the threads? I know I only get by thanks to my Red Bull. You should give it a try.

I've seen forums where posters run around with signatures full of spam links, posting short comments everywhere--and get away with it, because they're supposedly contributing.

I'm glad we don't put up with that sort of crap.

Fine, but only because it was very easy to find the birth

Yes! I had forgotten that it was born in the womb of Bards. And who said nothing good ever came out of that game?

I guess I've been here for 3 years, since before dice were invented.

Here that is...

I joined up in here in august 2003 to play in an Exalted game. And I'm still playing Exalted, though it feels like I'm the only one sometimes.

That was back in high school.

I feel old now.

March - ORP is graced with the Best Post Ever.
July - The emoticon is fixed, making it that much easier to bring shit onto the boards.
November - ORP gets a strikethrough tag Nothing else happened.

Wait, was changed from shit to :shit: in July?
I thought it was earlier.

Also, I always thought having it as just shit without the colons (heh) was intentional.
