    Long time lurker here.

    If the owner's didn't/don't care about the forum, why didn't someone ask Ice or (whoever hacked the forum) to transfer the site somewhere else? I'm assuming they won't keep paying for the hosting or renew the domain if they don't care anymore and it would have been useful to have all of this information saved and moved somewhere else. Seems like a waste to let this forum just die and disappear.

    Agreed (as long as the site is around) but eventually, without administration, it'll get messy!

    For the life of me though, I couldn't begin to comprehend the childish thought process where someone would want to delete threads and information on spite! It would be akin to a little girl crying and stomping her feet, a sad and dispicable sight for sure.

    People am dumb.
    Years ago I was in a clan for gaming and I was an admin on the servers and on the forums, I had root access to the server. A guy that had been banned from the servers and forums on multiple accounts and ip addresses, I think at one point we had the entire continent of Great Britain ip blocked because of this guy, brute forced my admin password while I was at work one day and deleted almost everything. His reasons were if he couldn't play on the server than no one else should be able to either. Thankfully the server owner had a backup of everything. Since then no one has hacked into a single account of mine.

    Without mods this place will eventually become a dumpster fire. I mod on another board and delete spam posts and ban bots and the like on a daily basis. It's only a matter of time before the site gets overrun with the same thing. With no mods to delete and ban it will get bad.

    Ya the spam bots would end it. But if someone got the site back online you would think they would be monitoring in the background for stuff like that.

    I think there might be a system in place because in all of the years I have been on here I've seen like 2 or 3 spam bots on here.

    This. It didn't seem like we did a lot but there was always quite a bit of banning going on for spam, junk users, and people from craigslist trying to put parts on blast everywhere. Someone was always working on something.

    Point in case of having people up top.

    Don't back track. Either you want people up top or not. Don't talk out both sides of your mouth. I've already stated multiple times that Devil's Own doesn't care. Why don't you reach out and contact them?

    New user here.,.,.


    I was going to donate after this site helped me solve my prolems, then I ran across this post. After giving it a good read I am still unsure if I should donate or not?

    also I am on a few gaming forums and they all run some form of spam-bot blocker. does this site not do that as well?

    Why would I contact them? Hey devils, this guy on gpf is crying he isnt boss of the ban hammer no more and gets mad when he cant ban people so he can have the last word.......?


    Think of it like a divorce, all those years married, did all the ass kissing for your wife not to kick your ass to the curb, kicks your ass to the curb, judge grants divorce, game over, move on with life.

    Hardly crying about it. You apparently think I'm upset about not running this place? Not even close. I'm upset that I tried spending tons of time fixing everything and got no where with them for inconsiderate ****s like you that think you're something special.

    Newsflash, lol. You're not.

    Waste of your time. I find that the special people don't care about being special, so after you point and laugh at them, just move on.

    And to be clear, my mom says I'm special, but I don't believe her. LOL

    You are upset you cant hide that sweety. Your butt lover owned you and you got ejected, game over.

    Id looooooooooooove for you to show me anywhere, internet or this forum where I said I was special and needed to be served
    with a silver spoon. You got owned, your not special, your the same as anyone else on the internet, get over that, embrace it, stop trying to have the last word because clearly you have personal issues that you can only solve with the ban button.
