    It's time to tell something from the past that is linked to Hive. Your story doesn't need to be the most awesome, the longest and the most entertaining to read. It can be a short one as long it somehow relates to Hive and it's people.

    The idea is that we share stories and perhaps even talk about them. It's time to remember what we've experienced and done since the beginning of Hive. Go ahead, and bring us your memorable moments from the past to the table.

    Just one rule: Only one story per post.

    Oh man, so many I would like to share, ranging from Mecheon's shoop da whoop on noobs to the epic chat histories and to the “drama”.

    OK, one short story until I catch up to what exactly you meant.

    No pseudo wannabe "staff history" will ever inspire someone like this again, ever.

    Shit, I'm mentioned. How did I never see that thread? >.>

    Anyway, there's a lot to remember, and while my early history in the Terraining Board surely is the closest to my heart,
    it's probably also the most boring story to tell. So, I'll stick with my most enjoyable memory; The Flock.

    While admittedly The Flock had a sinister motif, with frostwhisper leading a train of deception, it was also mostly great fun.
    Never before and never after was I ever a part of a meme movement, and it has it's reasons. The Flock was unique, it had
    it's own humor, it's own style and it's own methods, I don't know how to most justifiably explain any of it, and I don't think
    it's even realistic to explain it. Just know that The Flock was here, and it was amazing.

    @Rui: He butchered my name there. Glad you posted it though, I missed it back then (it was during my year of absence).

    Apparently I missed out on some stuff (mainly fladds).

    As Keiji said, while probably pretty boring to others, the history of the Terrain Board is really dear to me. It's always been a close-knit , friendly community. We've seen so many great members come and go. And some return (yay me?!). Lots of memorable moments, but I think one of the stand outs was seeing a Madsen terrain for the first time. That guy changed the way we looked at wc3.

    I spent a fair bit of time debating on this site, and it actually was one of the reasons I wound up loving philosophy and eventually studying it. Thanks to people lie purplepoot, CaptainGriffen, and Rising_Dusk.

    Deskalada in general was one to behold. I will never forget him or the many stories that go with him. Too lazy to reach back and find threads.

    Ash. Oh Ash. That group (Awesome something or other?) was not something I remember fondly. I had a certain respect for Ash, but not much of it. It was definitely a memorable moment for me since it was one of the few dramas I threw myself into.

    Edit: I just spend an hour pouring over old Site Discussion threads. Oh Hive Drama. While pretty silly looking back, it goes to show how many users have grown/grew to love this site.

    You mean that time I had to close all his threads and ban at least 7 multi's?
    No. I don't remember that.

    @Rui: I must've missed that as well! Thanks for the link. It was awesome. I still had numbers on my name back then, and him saying it as one-eleven instead of one-one-one made it seem cooler than it actually was.

    I remember when the spell section was purged. That was definitely needed, but it still took me by surprise.

    I also remember when D3 Beta was released (still one of the most epic mods to date), and when Gaia's Retaliation was a little baby.

    I remember logging in for the first time after the wc3sear.ch merge. It was a strange combination of confusion and excitement.

    And I remember Rui's old avatar of a night elf dancing. For some reason, it is a very vivid memory, among countless others. My brain is farting so I can't think of any specific awesome threads/memories, but I'll try to think of some tomorrow. But cool idea for a thread. :)

    After you said that, I actually went to Site Discussion and pick a random thread, and I found this

    That wasn't drama, that was comedy.

    I remember being in Heero/Xarwin's clan at the Battle.Net. Then one day I was alone with one guy in the chat who was also in the clan. He asked me to play. I checked his "stats" and they weren't that good. So I ignored him and continued watching porno.

    Later I realized the guy was Ralle.

    I don't remember what I was feeling in that moment. I recall thinking of creating a new account =P then I tried to log in as Rui even though that felt like a long shot, but, somehow, I thought, it worked! It was lucky I even remembered the password, else I would have concluded that the account didn't exist :gg:

    That time when I was stalking the whole post on the Dungeon of Level 1000, that Runer user is a comedy indeed.
