Talk:The Great Mistake

From Mario Fan Games Galaxy Wiki

I'd just like to add that Cutman was already permanently banned before this happened, as well as The Face (because it was Cutman's alternate forum name). So, editing that out from the results.

EDIT: As for a name, how about we just call it "The Worst Mistake Ever Made." --Joey

If we call it The Worst Mistake Ever Made, people might start arguing over what really deserves that title

We should probably make one that doesn't include comparison to other events in the name -Draco Icebane 13:45, 19 February 2008 (EST)

Well, it did give a permabanned member admin status and damn near destroyed the forum.

If that's not "the worst" in this forum's standards then I dunno what is. -Joey

I'm inclined to agree, but you know how selfish the community can be, and it'd be best to try to avoid their slapfights -Draco Icebane 14:02, 19 February 2008 (EST)

Righto. -Joey

Do you think that we should outlaw forum pranks for now on? This is the perfect example of one going way out of hand. — NES Boy 15:12, 19 February 2008 (EST)

If you mean joke promoting, then yes. -Stanley

Eeeeyeah, forum pranks aren't really that bad until it arrives to the point where you're messing with powers of the board, unless you're absolutely sure you can revert everything back to normal. - DJ Yoshiman

next time, why don't we make Questioning an admin

i'm sure that would be fun Xgoff 17:20, 19 February 2008 (EST)

Regarding the latest edit: I somehow doubt Jas simply made Biddy's normal account admin. Was he the person behind "Landmaster" (also adminned)? If so, then probably it should mention her making "The Face and Landmaster" admins, not "The Face and Biddy."


Yeah, Biddy was behind the Landmaster account, so you could do that if you want. - DJ Yoshiman

Wow...he was made an admin... 0_o

Name suggestions

"The Face Takeover"? Parakarry 16:19, 19 February 2008 (EST)

"The Timehole" was something I read today on the forums. I like that one. -Joey

Well it didn't have anything to do with the actual board destruction event. Parakarry 20:44, 19 February 2008 (EST)

Yeah it kinda did considering we went back an entire month because of it. Also it sounds cool and not lame like The Face Takeover, which I feel gives too much ego-feeding credit to Cutman. -Joey

Well I'd prefer something that talked about the actual disaster. Parakarry 22:24, 19 February 2008 (EST)

Personally I think "The Great Crash of '08" is a bit misleading. The word "crash" would leave me to believe the board went down as a result of a system error or something similar (I guess it could also be used in the context of somebody purposefully "crashing" the boards, but it's not what immediately comes to mind). We could go the generic Wikipedia route and call it "2008 board deletion incident," I guess (though I suppose even that's not 100% accurate). Jeff Silvers 22:46, 19 February 2008 (EST)

How about something like "The extreme misjudgment"? - 123James

Jas's prank gone wrong or something - Parakarry 15:32, 20 February 2008 (EST)

The Great Mistake of '08 -Draco Icebane 15:57, 22 February 2008 (EST)

"Oops 2008" --Xgoff 18:42, 23 February 2008 (EST)

I like the Great Mistake of '08 Parakarry 19:07, 23 February 2008 (EST)

Just call it the Great Mistake. It's not like there's going to be another one next year or something. ShadowMan 17:12, 24 February 2008 (EST)

I'm in agreement with SM's suggested name above. - 123James

Little do we know... - Mario Gamer

How about "The time warp" or "The Great Rollback of '08"? -- Hohoo

"Jas Effect". Like Mass Effect. Or maybe "THE Jas Effect" or something. -Black Squirrel 11:09, 27 February 2008 (EST)

I understand you didn't like the way I administrated, but I'd appreciate it if you didn't attempt to spite me. Thanks. As for naming this, I'd just go with Shadowman's suggestion and leave it at that. Throwing past members' names around doesn't translate as cool. -Jas

I moved it to The Great Mistake now.

So yeah. Also all the names are fixed across the wiki. Parakarry 14:31, 28 February 2008 (EST)
