Who wants a OVP history lesson?
I only ask because
a) I'm bored
b) The threads happened to pop up while searching in OVP.
Anyway, for those of you who've actually read the OVP rules, have you ever wondered where these examples came from?
Answer? Real threads.
So back in the day, there was this guy named Dakota. Worked on the staff, was an interesting guy I guess. How many of you actually remember him? It's been forever. At the point we're visiting, I want to say he was a Praetor (the predecessor to the AA position), although he might've been s-mod, I couldn't tell you for sure.
Well, one day, he decided to post some really interesting threads. The funny thing being, this beauty right here, posted before those threads.
(Hover over the links for thread titles, if you're too lazy to click.)
And then Chairman Kaga posted a response thread to all of this. It's actually a good read. Although my reply is one of my usual embarrassing older posts.
Was there an epidemic of "random polls" back then? Maybe a little. OVP has always had them, always will. The forum lends itself to some strange threads sometimes. And people will complain about them. It happens. We have rules to stomp out the worst of the worst now, unlike back then, so we learned! Maybe.
This is probably the biggest drama I've seen happen in OVP itself ever, to be honest. Funny, because it's actually pretty small. I'm hard-pressed to remember any other OVP drama. Someone jog my memory?
The toilet paper one was a different time altogether. Yes, I posted in it. I don't know why.
PS: My awesome pumpkins are awesome, no?
