Some character died and had made so many board posts that the server crashed and burned upon trying to send out the death mail.

True story. It happened twice that I know of: once when FatherAndy's first character died, seemingly, and another time when a seriously bugged troll punched my PC from full health to dead in one go - the subsequent crash pushed half of a hRPT back by a day. :P

Oh, that's confirmed. :)

It took a half-day of lagged before that mail sent. I just went back and checked... the email was 299 pages, then cut off and gave up.

Harland was a prolific IG writer, creating multiple textbooks for PCs on the use and description of every herb in the game (in addition to personal journals and board posts as clan-lead for several orgs.)

Remember that summer when the game would crash every 30 minutes consistently for weeks on end?

I liked in Atonement when accounts would get bugged and every time they logged in, the game would crash. And they would try 3-4 more times before giving up.

Or they'd leave their wonderful auto-login script on and go to bed...

I had that happen to me when I played Kolt.

Another favorite was when your account would get bugged and it would create a clone of your character but its name was a jumble of special characters. Sometimes you could log in on that PC fine, and other time it would crash the game so hard that it wouldn't auto-reboot.

Who was that former staff member who hacked Atonement during the Atlas and made it so you could play any of your past characters, even in Grungetown? I don't even care who the guy was, but that was pretty hilarious.

Also, this is my thread now.

Seriously, this thread has a purpose. Discussing the past is done in other threads. Now I'm not asking nicely anymore. Stop hijacking my thread. Make your own.

That was an old coder that they forget to take access away from, if I remember correctly. I wasn't playing at the time, just heard about it on the 'vine.

We didn't properly revoke his access and then he left some backdoors for after we did.

Of course, we had his real name and found his facebook and sent a mean letter to his mom. Oh, and Kithrater threatened to take legal action.

Good times.

I take full responsibility for the mean letter. And it was a mean letter -about- him to his Mom. I didn't call her fat or anything. I just told her what a <insert epithet here>head her son was being and said she should yell at him.

...Good times.

Also, the game's up? Maybe?
