Post .GS memes and such for future Anons to see.
|>>|| No. 12261
.gs doesn't really have any memes, we have "in jokes", and like every good "in joke" they get forgotten about after a few months and never seem as funny in hindsight.
They would have no meaning to the uninitiated either and all the ones with legs, i.e. the only ones worth mentioning, are still around anyway.
What pleasure could anyone that wasn't there derive from hearing about Crabkiller or the one-of-kind, hand-made
dinosaur hoodieautist cloak or *actual* Professor, etc? I wouldn't even call them memes, tbh.
|>>|| No. 12264
Explaining these "in jokes" would be useful when looking at old threads, and also nostalgic to some people.
|>>|| No. 12265
I'd rather it get lost in the mystery. Like how you can be bemused by medieval analogies and such.
|>>|| No. 12266
I've had a think.
.gs's only proper meme is tea threads and the phrase "Bovine Lactate? In your Herbal infusion?" anytime someone mentions milk.
We haven't actually had a tea thread in a very long time. Someone on here text that phrase into the Metro's text column and I took a picture and posted it and no one batted an eyelid, so again it's pretty pointless when people either don't know about or don't remember it. It would be meaningless to collate it unless you are actually going to make a .gs time capsule and bury it purple's garden.

> "Bovine Lactate? In your Herbal infusion?"
I have never ever read that before.

Are you sure you didn't imagine that? Because Google can't remember it happening but it does remember bovine lactate being posted on forum.neocron-game.com/archive/index.php?t-135438.html in 2006.

I still can't comfortably read the word 'beefy' anywhere without being reminded of what that means here.
The phrase used in a long gone /101/ thread, Harry love and cherisher and the Bugchaser's Semen-Caked Arsehole, just ruined me for months. Everytime I would think of it, it would leave me sort of wanting to simultaneously laugh and cry.

People subsequently trying to sneak the Smokester into pics.

They are pretty typical of the bug chasing scene, I have had a passing interaction with it due to being gay. There is a lot of literature out there to warn people away from it. The idea that "Well, if everyone is poz, what is the problem?" is prevalent. Some younger guys don't care because they can just "go get the cocktail." There is also men who will claim to be neg because they are "undetectable" failing to realise that the are walking time bombs and if they have a viral mass ejection while having sex with someone the drugs aren't going to be able to do shit about it.
It's terrifying, you can't trust anyone. Always use your own condoms, never have sex with someone who does anything heavier than coke and get tested regularly.

They were a britchan thing. He probably went on ED and made a list, their article for .gs and Britchan are the same and is horribly out of date. One of their mods came here once trying to promote the site and when we pointed out they couldn't even get our listing right he promised to fix it, but never did.

People are just posting things without context at this point, which is neither useful or constructive. Saying "arsrpisser" is fairly useless without context, along with everything else posted already. It's became a game of who can remember the most obscure/oldest part of the boards culture.

Ok, some vague context for some of them: 'Get back to Quiggins, lad' served a similar purpose to comments about edginess according to my dim memories (though I'm happy to be corrected if someone remembers better) - a way of telling people to stop being so damn teenage and alternative in some of their behaviour. Phrases like 'man is not a learning animal', 'cretinous inchworm', 'mashing the keyboard with your ape-like fists' were generally pet phrases of assorted lunatics that were adopted by others because it was funny. Simon was the name given to our pet nazi in the very early days - it was decided (though I can't remember if it was ever actually confirmed) that he was the webmaster for the BNP at the time, Simon Bennet(t?) (pictured in >>12453). His homepage made the proud statement that he was a 'certified webmaster' and someone found out elsewehere that he suffered from some skin disorder (Eczema or Psoriasis?) that made him perpetually itchy.

I can't remember, but Shedchan was certainly a real (if brief) thing, and I can't remember the address - is that perhaps what you're thinking of?

I've been here for nigh on six years and I've no idea what Quiggins is.

It wasn't an invitation, lad. I'm familiar with the site's lore. Vague context hardly seems appropriate for a "time capsule" type of deal, which is why this thread seems more than a bit pointless as a point of reference.
Most of this shit is banal and uninteresting to those that weren't there and the lad who made it clearly just did it so he could spout a few to fit in. This site has never been about that, we think up new mean things to call each other every 6 months or so and the old ones not only fall out of fashion but their meaning is lost to time. As an example, I referred to myself as an *actual* professor on here a couple months ago in a self deprecating post and got called a cunt for casting up my job, because no one got the reference. That is just how things are, dredging up old bits of half remembered jokes we thought were funny 5 years ago isn't going to make the site a more interesting place to be, because then nothing new will ever happen. Creativity happens in the culture vacuum and we get new jokes.
We used to get threads like this years ago and there was always a lad who would chip in and say "Wait 6 months and you'll have your own references to use and insults to hurl, you don't need references and insults that no one will understand a year from now" and I agree.
There are obviously things, old and new, that now seem to run to the core of the userbase's psyche (poz, teenlad shitposting, etc), but the rest is probably forgotten by the majority for a reason.
There is no point in calling someone Simon, when calling them Nigel is far more topical and more efficient at getting the point across. To use Simon in that instance, unless it is currently relevant, would be self-masturbatory.
I digress, but this this thread is not a useful resource by any measure.

There was a lad who used to phone him up all the time and annoy him from here, but the actual Simon posted on britchan not .gs.
|>>|| No. 12476
I have a very vague memory of seeing a screencap or two of some anons from here in the early days encounter him in irc somewhere and basically just be embarassing teenagers rather than have any kind of meaningful exchange with him, and being left with the impression that he'd heard of this place and thought we were all daft sods, but that he probably hadn't actually posted here himself. Most of /pol/ seemed to take it as gospel that he'd been here at some point and left as a result of a promise I forget about the results of an election I can't remember (possibly about the BNP getting an MP or over x number of MEPs).
|>>|| No. 12477
Actually, I've just remembered. I think some people reckoned purple's name was Simon ( although not the Simon) at one point, don't know if it was true or not, but that is probably what that lad is thinking of.
|>>|| No. 12479
No no that was Stormfag (and Searchfag). Stormy was a separate entity to Simon, and, if his election-time post was to be believed, one big hoax to try and make some point about racists.

>Most of /pol/ seemed to take it as gospel that he'd been here at some point and left as a result of a promise I forget about the results of an election I can't remember (possibly about the BNP getting an MP or over x number of MEPs).
That was the great searchfag vs. stormfag cunt-off in the run up to the 2009 EU elections, which was the longest and least interesting cunt-off the site has ever known. I remember purps or some mod uploaded a post count traffic graph around that time and it showed /pol/ was outpacing the rest of the site put together. Most of it (according to the post IDs) seemed to be two people just arguing back and forth about the BNP and foreigners, day in, day out, sometimes a hundred posts a day. This was before sparkly star /*/ was invented so most of the site's users probably didn't even know it was happening, much less care. Anyway after the best part of a year of incessant bickering the election results came in, BNP got next to nothing, and stormfag came out and said that he didn't actually support the BNP at all and was in fact trying to motivate people to get political. It was weird as fuck. To his credit he did fuck off and /pol/ has been comparatively quiet ever since.
I don't think anyone seriously thought Simon Bennett was involved.
|>>|| No. 12482
>most of the site's users probably didn't even know it was happening, much less care.
I had no idea until being linked to stormfag's big reveal. The astronomical rise of UKIP has proved him right, in a way -- that's the kind of shit that happens when we stop caring.

Bloody hell I'd forgotten about the sadacts forcing this on /iq/. Real blast from the past.

I'd forgotten about the mods claiming only one or two people were forcing it. You could always tell the ones that the userbase loved and widely posted over a large period of time....they were always the ones the mods hated and ended up banning. Conversely, you could always tell the ones that the mods or irc clique had come up with as they were the ones that were horifically overused within a short space of time and had everyone complaining yet conspicuously escaped b& status

Hello everyone, YubYub here again.
As expected my last thread was full of faggotry and quickly mimicked leaving people confused as to what the original message was. I am here to clear all that up and to shed some light on the future of Britchan.
As you have all probably guessed Russians Ddos’d Britchan and the bandwidth for the month has been used. It will take until March for Britchan to go up once again but even that is uncertain. I have spoken to R4GE about ownership and he has refused to take back the chan and as I have stated I no longer have time for this chan, that is now even more the case as my girlfriend is now pregnant (no falcon punch, we are both extremely happy about it). Myself and R4GE are both reluctant to hand over the chan to some one we don’t know IRL so we have both agreed that Britchan will never be back.
There were good times on Britchan that shall never be forgotten, but like all good things they must come to an end. It seems like you have settled in here and I hope that the future of this chan blossoms even further.
So R4GE owned Britchan.

>It didn't. Those are from Britchan, you mong.
I just assumed from the dates, that by 2009 that .gs had succeeded Britchan, given that .gs has threads dating back to late 2008 in >>/test/ .
So when exactly did Britchan die and how did it's userbase find .gs?
|>>|| No. 12964
Can't remember exact dates when britchan died, but the two ran parallel for a while (at least a few months). This place was generally more helpful, and had the feeling of a slightly older userbase, whilst britchan was more anarchic and faster-moving if I remember rightly. Lots of us used both sites, so when britchan eventually died we migrated here permanently (after a time in the wilderness of krautchan's /int/ board for the hardcore britchan loyalists if I remember correctly - /iq/ was partly created as a sanctuary for them, I think).
|>>|| No. 12965
It probably helped that on one amphetamine-infused night I abused my britchan mod privileges to delete every single thread on britchan and the admit didn't know how to revert it.
|>>|| No. 12968
Didn't the two run parallel while britchan was being ddos'd to death and was over its monthly bandwidth limit half the time? I vaguely remember that being britchan's demise although to be fair I don't remember a lot of those years and my imagination could be filling in the details for me.
|>>|| No. 12969
Yeah, that sounds about right (though as was probably clear from repeated 'if I remember...'s my memory's hardly crystal clear). I think that was when people started using here and /int/ when britchan was offline, before the final death due to YubYub's incompetence and lack of funds (and >>12965's sabotage, it seems).
Anyone with a fully-functioning memory is actively encouraged to chip in at this point...

I'm trying to work out the timeline of Britchan's demise. So it went down for good early Feb 2009, but it also seems to have gone down in oct/nov 2008, which sparked the ceration of /uk/ on Krautchan, is this correct?
