Get to know a negro BETTER!: A Tragedy

Vanilla had had a security hole unfixed since SRK moved to Vanilla. Accounts abandoned before a previous board switch (such as the dead Soy Sauce account) got taken over by the "Unknown" placeholder account since those abandoned accounts no longer existed. The hole is that bots could log in as "Unknown" and edit these abandoned posts to be spam posts.

Last night, SRK was updated and this hole got fixed. All compromised posts apparently were deleted. All non-compromised posts are now written by "System".

Unfortunately, Mandel's Soy Sauce post to start the "Get to know a negro BETTER!" thread in August 2003 was one of the affected posts (and had previously been compromised by a bot last week before I restored it). Since it was marked as compromised, it got deleted in last night's board upgrade... and the entire thread is now evidently unrecoverably gone.

    I wasn't around for the genesis of the Northwest scene... or at the very least the previous thread, but it sucks that, that history is gone :/ Here's hoping that whatever upgrades the future brings won't erase any more of it

    What was the last fighting game y'all played? When and where?

    Me: Ultra SF4 @ the U of O campus on Tuesday. went 10-0 with Blanka before giving it up. I don't play Blanka.
    Are you clutch or crutch?

    The last game I played was MvC2 last night online. The last game in person? NWM, MvC2 in the tourney and MvC3 over at Jeff/Nolan's.

    :(

    Last game I played is 3rd Strike because I'm always playing 3rd Strike. There was a cab at NWM6 that had CPS3 3rd in it, but it had terrible controls and it made me extra hella sad to play on. Felt like IL/Happ sticks, four Sanwa buttons and two IL/Happ buttons. Felt so wrong.

    Mandel is our homeboy. Everybody misses Mandel. Too much life, not enough casual fun Saturdays together these days. :sad:

    Smfh. Just found out the Tilt inside the Lloyd Center closed down... over a year ago. That really bombards me with feels.

    Anybody in Vancover know if the Tilt at the Heritage Mall is still open? Last time I was there, they had a custom UMVC3 cab set up near the front.

    Seems to be around these parts, but I believe there is a very active Facebook group somewhere.

    It's dead in the PDX. One of the most recent ranbats held at/near a Salvation Army had a laughable turnout.

    There's monthly tournaments, but they're advertised on Facebook. SRK kept going up and down and most of the OGs kinda wandered away as a result.

    What's the Facebook group URL? I wonder if I can see it without an account.

    I guess 25-30 people is laughable.
