    It is time to re-surface the ORIGINAL thread that started PuF back in Dec 14, 1999, since there seems to be a number of new forumers asking about it.

    Here it is, in its original form dated Dec 14 1999:

    "I have an important proposal. Lets identify ourselves as PU regulars online by having a [PuF] somewhere in our name (eg. [PuF]BadAss). If you already belong to a clan, you can still add the PuF as part of your name ( eg. {OF}Candyman|PuF ). Advantages:
    PuF = PlanetUnrealForumers

    1) People have been saying they want to play people from this board. This will make it easy to find us online

    2) Can use the "find player" feature in Gamespy for fellow forumers.

    3) This will make our name distinctive on ngWorldStats

    4) We can easily isolate fellow forumers stats by searching for "PuF" (note, ngStat is case-sensitive)

    5) If we see another PuF online, we'll know where to find him after the game

    6) No need for try-outs. The purpose of PuF is for us regulars.

    7) If you want to be associated with the PlanetUnreal forum regulars, you're in!!!

    8) This is an informal "clan", if you can call it that. There is no leader or commitment. You can join and leave anytime.

    9) We can meet in the UT's broswer IRC chat

    10) It will give us a sense of community

    Issues:

    I know a lot of you have already started to play using one name (myself included) and have built up impressive stats. By changing your name, your stats will reset. However, UT has only been out for about 3 weeks, so in the long scope of things, it shouldn't matter. Also, as you now have had some practice with UT, your new stats should be "cleaner" and with fewer newbie mistakes.

    Also, when choosing your name, make sure you don't use characters that the UT's IRC chat don't accept (test them first!!!). In fact, it doesn't accept a lot of characters like !@#$%^&*()-+:"';. If you use any of these in your name, you won't be able to log on in the IRC chat (test it first by try to log on to the UT's chat room before you build up an impressive stat record only to find you can't log on!!!).

    I have tested that brackets [] are acceptable with UT's IRC chat room. Therefore, I propose using [PuF] (or simply PuF if you already belong in a clan)

    Clan members format: [clan]yourname|PuF
    Non-clan format 1: [PuF]yourname
    Non-clan format 2: yourname|PuF

    Note that ngStat is case-sensitive. So, make sure you use "PuF" (don't use PUF, puf, etc.) A ngStat search on PUF or puf will have too many matches. A search on PuF only revealed one match (see below).

    I have done my best to see whether there is other PuF (or similar) clans out there and there are none. In ngStat, there is only one person with PuF but has only logged on 10 kills (lifetime) so I think he must've abandoned his name.

    Yellow5 has a [PU] after his name, so I don't want to mess with him I don't know if PlanetUnreal already has an "Official" thing going. If so, let me know if I am stepping on someone's tail.


    IMPORTANT: Sign-up!!!!!!

    Who is with me here??? Please reply with a YES or NO so that I'll know whether to proceed. Comments welcomed.

    P.S. Liquid_Sin started something great by creating an #planetunreal chat channel on the UT's built-in IRC. Make sure you drop in by typing #planetunreal as a new channel and click "connect". It's easy."

    End of message..... Dec 14 1999

    BTW, to the new forumers, this infamous post received 500 replies before it finally crashed.

    On its second attempt, it reached 300 replies (mainly spams this time around), before it crashed.

    The original post was titled "See you, see me online, be a PuF...."

    Many will remember......

    When I made the original post, I had no idea if anyone was interested in the idea. By asking people to "sign-up", I just wanted to know who was with me.

    spam spam spam spam..hehe
    kidding...
    Ok so what do i do then? just add PuF to my name and i'm famous.
    I don't play much at the moment i spend more time wrestling with UnrealEd, but i'm gonna have a new connection this week which will mean mym online time will cost nothing 24hpours a day, which means i'll probably be spending some of those hours fragging away (i sadi fragging not frigging!). It would be cool to be able to find people to play with regularly, kinda make s it more fun. I don't have the time that most clans demand to give, so this seems just peachy, So i can PuF in between puffing hehehehe.
     
  14. :) Put it on...Since you're new here you can put it on your forum name now...I suggest you do that before you accumalate a high post count. Or add it to your signature or just put it on when you come online. Whatever you feel more comfortable with :).
