Forum:Otherwise known as RGRN in exile

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The traditional forum for discussing NetHack is of course rec.games.roguelike.nethack. Unfortunately, Usenet is not a particularly secure medium, and ISPs just aren't on the ball about newsgroup abuse like they once were.

And sure enough, some pimple-faced jerk with no life has decided that RGRN would be better off filled to the rim with nonsense posts. Perhaps this day was inevitable, but it's still sad.

So I've taken the liberty of enabling forums at NetHackWiki, that discussion of this storied game might continue under the protection of the Holy Hammers of Bannination. May this be a temporary measure, and may Pimple Face get a life sometime soon.--Ray Chason 16:50, 15 August 2007 (UTC)


I thank you, my sanity thanks you.

Here at the wiki, I have sometimes wondered if the NetHackWiki:Community portal and NetHackWiki:Ask an expert pages should be more like forums. --Kernigh 01:05, 16 August 2007 (UTC)


Don't forget to keep bumping the thread announcing this forum on RGRN so that people will see it. I tried linking it here via Google Groups, but it's asking me to type in a captcha that I can't see/access. I guess this would count as my first post to RGRN. 4.245.224.187 04:02, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

This is genius. More people need to know about this. Lotte 05:12, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
