Bernies back in town

Post by BernieSanders on Sun Mar 27, 2016 2:57 am

Hey guys, HOD101 / Russianlord / HomoSiccus / VespertilioExInfernum / BernieSanders here stopping by at Yawn to see how it is doing for the third time now. I guess you could say that I am an active user within the SS13 community for 8 odd years now give or take a few. To best explain my activities in the community I should probably start with my place in the 2008/2009 /tg/ builds and explain up to the present day. Considering that I am compressing 8 odd years of SS13 this may take a while. If you get to the end I promise I will give you a good youtube video to watch for your effort.

I started my affiliation with SS13 in 2008 late or maybe 2009 under the coderbase handle of HOD101. At the time I was a trial coder brought in to learn byond code in the 2nd wave of coders to work on SS13 by NEO. I spent about half a year on and off learning the code but was pretty bad at it and only really made about 12 alterations to the code fixing one or two important security holes in the HTTP interface for computers in the old /tg/ code. I was also kind of active in discussing and helping people in the coderbus chatroom near the end but was young at the time and looking back was probably more of a nuisance than help. I exited /tg/'s coders in the fourth wave of layoffs in mid 2009 and left the scene of SS13 for a while after that.

I returned to SS13 in early 2010 and messed around playing the game on /tg/, mars server and an early facepunch for a few months and in mid 2010 I got a trial admin job on a /tg/ server from a few people knowing me from my coder days. Can't recall much from then but it I was new to the admin game at the time so I was probably about as bad at admin"ing as coding. I think I had a falling out with the admins over something and left the team in mid 2010 and removed my byond account as /tg/ was such a large playerbase to leave that I probably could not get an admin job anywhere else with the username.

Right after removing the account I started the Russianlord account and started playing on goon, mars and early facepunch servers. That went on for a few months until late 2010 when I discovered the Yawn server. I played on the server for a while and after about a month they started looking for admins so I applied and got accepted as a trial admin. Over the next 4-5 months I admin'd on Yawn and moved up the rank ladder from Trial to Badmin and Badmin to GameMaster. I recall the time having a lot of special events and endless midi's being played on the server. The playerbase was pretty small at about 20 max players but they were all loyal and respected the rules to a t, bans were days between compared to other servers at the time where there were 50 odd bans a day from multikey'ers and people spamming new accounts. By about april 2011 Yawn had lost a lot of it's player base and most of the admins had left, as the last GameMaster/GameAdmin there I left then and moved onto other servers.

The next server I moved to was NOX which after a month or two I got admin on, at the time they were ok people but by late 2011 the place had gone downhill fast. Errorage an old coder from /tg/ had got the head admin position and turned the place into a den for neo-nazis. After a few large arguments with the admins about the changing direction of the server I was blacklisted and banned from the server, at the time I was only a badmin and so had little sway but still hoped that I helped in the downfall of Errorage from his position which forced him back into /tg/ a few months later. Having used up another username I exited byond and SS13 once again.

After about 2 years I returned to SS13 under the handle HomoSiccus, at the time the landscape of SS13 had changed a lot, Mars station was gone, NOX was basically dead and a few Yawn admins and Yawn were back as well as a bunch of new servers. After contacting Black and Demon(An old Yawn admin) I got a place back on Yawn and tried for a while to rebuild the playerbase, this lasted from about mid to late 2013 before I gave up and left the position again because I was not even able to hold 5 people on the server. It was probably due to the changing environment that the loyal players were gone and large events were not possible but at least I got to midi-spam for 1/3 of a year to a small playerbase. After leaving yawn in late 2013 I moved over to apocalypse station and played on there for about 2 months before getting on as an admin, quickly I learned that many of the people from NOX were pulling the same play for apocalypse station except with a twist that they were turning the place into an MLP Neo-Nazi station. Again I tried to stop it and called out the admins from NOX for their crap but it was too late and ended up just getting the same treatment that I got from NOX. After leaving apocalypse station I moved onto Facepunch and played there for a while and became reasonably respected until Foos the head admin on Facepunch became friends with the old admins from apocalypse, one of whom worked out I was the same guy from NOX who called them out back again. As Foos commanded most of the adminbase on facepunch I left there a short time after a short while due to the adminbase ignoring griefing requests probably because they were related to most of the claims. So I once again jumped servers to Hippie station.

I played on Hippie station for about half a year before Hippie brought a new round of admins on and just my luck Foos and the Apocalypse admins were in there so I got disillusioned and left SS13 for a while. I returned in early 2015 under the new username of VespertilioExInfernum and played on Hippie on and off for half the year until the code of the server got a bit off and I could get nowhere with the admins without referencing my jaded history with NOX, Apocalypse and Facepunch so I got bored of playing and left about mid 2015. A month or so later I heard that Foos was having issues as well as the old apocalypse admins on Hippie station so I made the BernieSanders account for the reason of returning a new and because I felt that if I left the name another month it would be taken. I played on Hippie for a little bit in late 2015 but Foos who was running Apollo station was still an admin on Hippie so I left again.

Cut to the present month of March 2016 I have heard that Foos and the Apocalypse staff have finally been let go permanently and are off trying to get Apollo station to work so I have returned to Hippie and just now I have returned to Yawn to see how it and Black are doing after 6 years.

Sorry for the massive 1200 word intro but I feel like it was needed to prove that I am not a full know it all(Only maybe 50%) when I talk about the old times of Yawn and the old times of NOX, Apocalypse, Facepunch, Mars, /tg/, Hippie, Apollo and other servers I forget to mention and the old times of the /tg/ coderbase with the amazing NEO and the demonic Errorage. It also helps to have all this history in one place instead of posting it in new server forums which will probably go under in a year unlike yawn which seems to live on forever.

As promised here is a youtube video for getting to the end.

I remember you, Nice to see you again, however Demon was kept on the staff because he managed to bring players in, within the staff he caused infighting/constantly kicked/banned me from the server despite me being an admin, but nice to meet you.

Well, Demon was more of a connection to talk to black when I came back. He had his fair share of social ineptitude and could be a zealot to the rules but past his autistic behaviours he was a nice guy who cared for the player base, it is just a real shame that it could take hours to explain a viewpoint to him. Not sure what black magic Ace pulled to gain his trust because it took me days of long admin chats with him to achieve a similar respect.
