From Pool's Closed Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Pool's Closed officially operated for nearly 4 years. Much happened in that time.

Week of July 12, 2006 - Pool's Closed v1.0

Early September 2006 - Host acts like a dumbshit and kills site. Occurs very close to /b/-day.

October 8, 2006 - Pool's Closed reestablished, v2.0. Very first thread was a spambot. Second thread was titled 'omg' and consisted of nothing but a period.

October 29, 2006 - Nigra Radio launched.

November 1, 2006 - tramptech announces the original Nigrapedia. And there was much rejoicing.

November 5, 2006 - Original (and only winrar) /b/andetta raid.

December 1, 2006 - First World AIDS Day raid and first official raid Pool's Closed participates in organizing.

January 16, 2007 - First MLK Day raid. I have a meme speech given to a theatredome full of nigras.

Early February - The Spring Lull is instituted to avoid raid burnout.

February 16-22, 2007 - Habbit posts about the POP Culture College. Many nigras make multiple /b/lockades and take over classes for several days until Sulake locks all the rooms.

April 1, 2007 - Orochi upgrades Pool's Closed to phpBB3. Flash bbcode introduced. Soon after it gets broken due to Orochi getting emo over everyone embedding flash loops.

April 2, 2007 - Host briefly takes a shit and fucks up the forums.

April 26-27, 2007 - Orochi unleashes his inner butthurt and goes full emo. Uses backdoors he planted to delete the forums and the several attempts to restore them. Most of the April posts are lost. Sped makes lulzy illustrations about wtf happened. Eventually Sped gives up and turns hosting over to Afroduck due to having frequently donated jewgolds to run shit.

May 1, 2007 - Pool's Closed v3.0 is launched. Reversion to modded phpBB 2 since 3 was still beta; ends up being a permanent change. Rules are lightened, moar lulz return. Cosby flash posted on front page. All posts from March 5 to April 27 are forever lost due to only available backup being 2 months old.

May 4, 2007 - Simplysped vanishes into the sunset.

May 7, 2007 - 7/12 Reunion planning begins again. Captain Planet creates the promo speech used in the video.

May 11, 2007 - The MODs make it so a boxget was required to close the pool.

May 15, 2007 - Flash bbcode returns. Yes, it really *was* that big a deal.

May 24, 2007 - 7/12 Reunion propaganda video is uploaded, possibly the most epic piece of nigra-made propaganda ever created. OMGALION provides speech voiceover.

June 1, 2007 - Orochi raeps the Nigrapedia and scripts the permissions and templates so it's impossible to get in again. Site host is unresponsive and content is also forever lost.

June 11, 2007 - In honor of redshoepaul's birthday, the first Global Mod Day occurs. Many lulz. Sodaz kills it halfway through by deleting half the posts and cramming all the rest into a single forum.

June 15, 2007 - Pool's Closed changes domains to .us due to Sped redirecting the .com and some faggot registering .net and trying to sell it back and .org was already in use.

July 1-2, 2007 - Some script kiddie launches DDoS against Pool's Closed. Combination of redirects and host filtering kills it after the second day.

July 12, 2007 - 7/12 Reunion raid/World Tour #2. #poolsclosed has upwards of 240 nigras. Forums hit a record 209 simultaneous users a couple minutes before raid start, overloading the shared hosting. MODs on Habbo cave in and tell habbofags to join in and not report anyone. Constant epicness and lulz ensues for hours.

Late July 2007 - Nigrapedia mostly restored and publicly opened again.

August 5, 2007 - Sodaz finds Sherwood Dungeon (then called Sherwood Forest). Thus begins the most epic secondary raiding target in Pool's Closed history.

August 12, 2007 - Pool's Closed tries their hand at trolling Cybernations.

August 24, 2007 - Oekaki is added.

August 25, 2007 - Nigra Navi v4.0 and DAJ Glass theme added.

September 2, 2007 - ReiClone's pregnant adopted sister/wife is allowed onto Pool's Closed.

September 11, 2007 - Second 9/11 Raid. Lulzy but not as big as before.

November 9, 2007 - It is discovered that the makers of Captain Planet, in the only episode about AIDS, predicted that black men with afros would be closing things and fucking shit up MORE THAN 12 YEARS BEFORE THE HABBO RAIDS BEGAN! Aids is pollution too

December 14-17, 2007 - A Christian end-time spambot finds Pool's Closed and posts repeatedly. Rapture is filtered to RAPTOR JESUS, resulting in more lulz.

December 24, 2007 - Pool's Closed kicked off host due to 'obscene content'. The only reference given was Captain Planet's 9/11 raid guide. Moved to Webhostingbuzz.

January 2, 2008 - Suspended from Webhostingbuzz due to abuse of resources, even though it was just a low-traffic forum and wiki. They get the finger, PC moved to yet another host. That one didn't suck.

January 13, 2008 - LoneSoviet gets into the robitussin and turns into a weeaboo for the night.

February 21, 2008 - ReiClone's sister dies giving birth. She is known as 'Rei's dead adopted sister' from then on. Afroduck succeeds in last measuring ReiClone and the baby later that day.

April 1, 2008 - April Fool's Day. Cotton Eye Joe theme introduced and forced, random nigras given mod powers. Captain Pollution returns.

April 2, 2008 - Captain Pollution defeated. Cotton Eye Joe theme becomes optional.

July 11, 2008 - Pool's Closed gets its own ventrilo. Nobody ever uses it though.

July 12, 2008 - 2nd anniversary raid. In an attempt to find the classic lulz all nigras loved, the mostly-virgin Canada is targeted. Good turnout, much win despite earlyfags tipping off the MODs several days before. Nerdfit DJs provide music and directions to keep nigras safe. Raid eventually spreads to other hotels. Last of the Epic Raids.
