BIS Boards Reunion Tour

Recommended Posts

I didn't know you created a second account Amentep. You must have been spamming a lot to have over 5000 combined. :lol: I think I only had about 1500 posts to my name. Although I primarily posted in the Ye Olde Political forum and even then only posted in a few threads. Mostly reading the other threads.

Well, I happened to agree with another poster that it was hard to be a moderator and a member with one account because the lines became blurred. So when I volunteered to mod PST's forum because it had no mods but a lot of good information that needed stickying, I also asked them to change that account, then recreated my normal account so there wouldn't be confusion over whether I was wearing my mod hat or not. And they nicely agreed!

 

But I really wasn't a spammer so much as...persistent. :p

 

Does anyone remember who the mods were for all the different sub-forums and list them all?

 

I guess it depends on what time frame you want. Moderators and sub-forums changed (IIRC both the TORN and NeverWinter Nights forums got removed, for example).

 

I can't recall what all was on the Interplay threaded forums (seem to recall they had a lot of broad game categories, then games that fell in each category)

 

What I recall from the early BIS board was -

  • BG2 and Throne of Bhaal Feedback
  • BG2 and Throne of Bhaal Story Discussion
  • BG2 and Throne of Bhaal Troubleshooting
  • BG2 and Throne of Bhaal SPOILERS
  • Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance Discussion
  • Icewind Dale and Heart of Winter Feedback
  • Icewind Dale and Heart of Winter Tips and Tricks
  • Icewind Dale and Heart of Winter Troubleshooting
  • Icewind Dale: Trials of the Luremaster (later HoW: Trials of the Luremaster
  • TORN Feedback
  • TORN S.P.E.C.I.A.L. System Discussion
  • TORN: The World of TORN
  • Black Isle Studios General Feedback
  • BG1 and Tales of the Sword Coast Discussion (later Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast)
  • Fallout Miscellaneous
  • Planescape: Torment Discussion (later, Torment Discussion)
  • Tom's Music Corner
  • WAY WAY Off Topic
  • Ye Olde Pages of Historey (later, History, Philosophy, Religion, and Political Stuff)

Before volunteer mods it was

 

Overseer, Derek French (also BIS_FRENCH?), Kevin (not Osburn?), Alan, ray, Dave Maldonado, Darren Monahan, Kevin Osburn, MaxiMoose, KillRoy, and JE Sawyer listed as mods.  Other than BIS_French on Tom's music corner, JE Sawyer on "Ye Olde" I don't remember who modded what (well Overseer was the admin account).

 

Xandar was the first volunteer mod, IIRC.

 

I remember Onkel was volunteer mod for Tom's Music corner.

 

After volunteering, I had PST and I think we all had WWOT eventually due to a persistent spammer who loved to spam threads with dozens upon dozens of BISIMGs on the weekends; during the Interplay boards era and before stepping down I had PST, Run Like Hell, and Hunter the Reckoning.

 

Before I volunteered, KraziKat became the primary admin for the boards and the Overseer admin account wasn't used as much.

^ You've got a great memory 'tep. Another developer was SEverts (Scott Everts) but wasn't a mod. He had a lizard man avatar.

 

I do remember when the NWN Nights forums was on BIS and then taken away. And you're right, Josh did moderate Ye Olde. Near the end of the BIS days, The Citybuster became a mod for Ye Olde as well. And then Helgi (I think he changed his name to helgi korre or something like that) also became a mod for Ye Olde.

 

Alla'deaty was one of the mods for WWOT from memory. kattija and Pirotess were mods of the BG2 forums? Lord Chaos was another mod. hankinator was a mod as well. Same with Rachel, Missy and I think Kate Gould (not her real last name) became a mod. And Fionavar was in charge of the Tech files with industry news. I also remember when the post count was taken away from WWOT and it didn't record your posts anymore. Something that continues with Obsidian.

I modded BG2 Spoilers, kattja modded BG1 I think...Riv and Petrond were BG2 Story Discussion maybe? Rachel was BG2 Troubleshooting. I modded WWOT too.

 

There was a film forum as well wasn't there? Or maybe not until Interplay. But there DEFINITELY wasn't a secret ladies forum. Not on BIS anyway :p

A long, long time ago, but I can still remember,
How the Trolling used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance, I could egg on a few Trolls to "dance",
And maybe we'd be happy for a while.
But then Krackhead left and so did Klown;
Volo and Turnip were banned, Mystake got run out o' town.
Bad news on the Front Page,
BIOweenia said goodbye in a heated rage.
I can't remember if I cried
When I heard that TORN was recently fried,
But sadness touched me deep inside,
The day...Black Isle died.


For tarna, Visc, an' the rest o' the ol' Islanders that fell along the way

That forum was rubbish. There was hardly any gossip at all worth the ear wigging.

OK well. First of all. *is due. GOSH.

 

Second of all, how do we kill off these quote pyramids again?

 

Third of all I'm out of things I can think of to talk about. How about that soccer that's happening, eh? I'm actually boycotting it on account of FIFA being grotesque comic book villains, but apparently there are some exciting games happening.

There's a button on the upper left of the editing window "BBCode Mode" that will toggle you to where you see the [ quote ] tags and makes it easy to remove pyramidal quotes.

But full quotes are now even more awesome than ever with those stylish rounded corners (© Apple) and how they clutter the answer box :)
