64Digits Wars

After being online for several weeks, 64Digits was offline for several minutes yesterday. The site has a history of frequent downtime, but after the most recent server move it has been comparatively stable.

However, the recent short downtime has an interesting story behind it. Well-known member GearGOD was banned after misusing Javascript to post hardcore porn visible only to another member, sk8m8trix. GearGOD then unbanned himself once, and site admin ludamad banned him again.

He attempted again to unban himself, but 64Digit’s staff had apparently locked him out successfully. The site then experienced a flood of MySQL errors for unknown reasons and went offline for a few minutes. The site was quickly restored, but today GearGOD took over ludamad’s account and made a 64Digits news post under ludamad’s name. All of ludamad’s blogs were also deleted and his preferences wiped.

The news post asked user what they thought should be done about GearGOD, and “made me [ludamad] sound stupid”. The comments on the post were quite entertaining with almost every opinion imaginable heatedly expressed. The post has since been deleted.

When asked for comment, GearGOD said “if you [expletive] with me, there are consequences”.

  1. Wow, and I thought he was a good guy…

    Why do good programmers constantly turn out to be rude? Same with good Lua scripters on the Facepunch Garry’s Mod forum…

  2. Haha, I find this quite funny, and I know I would have done the same thing (well, maybe a little differently) in that situation. But oh well, I don’t think I even have a 64Digits account, so that can’t happen 😛

  3. Such a nice community isn’t it….

  4. At first I thought they got hacked when I read that, I didn’t think GearGOD would do something like that (always knew he could though).

    Wow.

  5. We are a nice community, really.
    It’s just hat we get people like GG, who are quite nice really, but turn into total bastards at the drop of a hat (appologies for swearing, course)
    I actually thought it was a real post, it seemed plauseable, though I now fear hacking attacks for poor 64D.

    The moral of the story is: Using your HTML rivs to unwarn yourself, calling luda silly, and showing off porn is bad, mmmkay?

  6. So what did they do to make him mad?

  7. They banned him. Didn’t you read the story? 😛

    “However, the recent short downtime has an interesting story behind it. Well-known member GearGOD was banned after misusing Javascript to post hardcore porn visible only to another member, sk8m8trix. GearGOD then unbanned himself once, and site admin ludamad banned him again.”

  8. But what made him mad in the first place.

  9. “But what made him mad in the first place.”

    being banned for sending harcore porn to sk8m8trix. read the article.

  10. sending hardcore porn doesn’t seem like geargod to me though, why did he do that? i like geargod because of his sarcasm, but hacking forums is a bit pathetic really..

  11. Na I doubt he got mad because he isent allowed to send porn to users.

  12. I don’t think its really a big deal, I mean, if no one else could see it… I send my friends 2 girls 1 cup a lot, disguised in links of course, but hey, if no one else could see it, not really a big deal.

  13. Oh, no, of course not.
    Yes, it’s perfectly alright to force people to see porn, when they don’t want to, it’s perfectly alright to unwarn yourself, and unban yourself.
    Your story, dw, is about you sending it to your friends, who no doubt want to see it, or you wouldn’t have sent it, sk8, bless his little cotton socks, didn’t.

  14. I was under the impression from the article that this was his friend. If it wasn’t, then its a different story.

  15. I think the question “But what made him mad in the first place.” Was referring to – why was he sending images of said nature towards sk8m8trix. Was he mad at sk8m8trix? Or were they both just on 64 Digits for non Game Maker related reasons.

  16. Meeeh.
    No one is friends with sk8, he’s a sk8hole, but that doesn’t excuse GG.
    gearGOD was mad because ludamad warned him.
    He PMed Luda saying that Luda was silly, and used his HTML privs to unwarn himself.
    He was then banned.
    This made him mad.

  17. It sounds like 64D got owned.
    I don’t mean to side with a jerk (because that was a bit harsh), but still, that’s pretty funny.

  18. Well I didn’t know how this happened, I was out
    of the GM scene for a long time. However, it never
    really struck me that GearGod as that kind of a guy,
    maybe you are just antagonizing him here.

  19. Oh yeah, we were ‘antagonising’ him.
    He posted porn, insulted mods, and hacked the site to remove his own warns!
    And 64D is unpwnable. Completely and utterly so.

  20. What an idiot… One person tried to hack the german community once. I phoned his parents. End of story.
