Thought I'd raise this as I was in the chat when this was happening. Would be nice to get a reason as to why this happened.

#2 Posted by ottoman673 (382 posts) -

I posted a topic about this a few minutes ago and it was swiftly deleted.

#3 Edited by nihilisticmonkey (91 posts) -

That's why I raised this. I'm curious as to if it'll happen again. In all seriousness, members kinda deserve to know what occurred there.

Yah I saw that, not so sure what is going on

#5 Edited by KarlPilkington (2654 posts) -

They're all being deleted. Strange!

#6 Posted by Dislecsik (10 posts) -

This will probably get deleted too.

#7 Edited by frythefly (199 posts) -

I was the first to get banned, but it seems i'm unbanned now.

#8 Posted by TheCreamFilling (1220 posts) -

Conspiracy.

This topic was deleted and now it's not?

#10 Posted by SpartanAmbrose (831 posts) -

I have no idea what caused that madness. It was pretty funny, however, when I said "I survived the random bans of 2013" and was subsequently banned myself seconds later.

#11 Edited by Scrawnto (2413 posts) -

Huh. Was the hacker trying to cover things up by deleting the threads too?

@nihilisticmonkey: The mods have said they're on the case and will let us know more as soon as they can.

Hope they do, including why all these posts were deleted.

They aren't really making a big deal of it on the stream, so I'm assuming everything is ok?

Yep, very weird.

I was just told that staff may have deleted that post to help control information, but that's still uncertain. We should be hearing something soon.

I think they're just being professional. This'll be archived after all. If there's a hacked mod or a security issue, it'll be up to the Mods/Developers to resolve. No point messing up the feed talking about it.

The fact these topics were being deleted was when I started to really get concerned.

#19 Edited by ottoman673 (382 posts) -

Shame, because after the chat died, this stream got even BETTER.

#20 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5120 posts) -

Weird, the chat wasn't working when I was watching the stream.

Are we going to place bets on which mod went rogue?

Yea the stream itself has been awesome!

They took chat down when it started to get really crazy.

Yeah, same here. I posted and then saw it all disappear. Suffice to say it sounds like top men are on the case. It would be great if we could all get a follow up on what actually happened, if it was a hacked mod or a strange exploit (the former seems more likely) was taken advantage of. I'm glad everyone getting unbanned though.

#25 Posted by nihilisticmonkey (91 posts) -

@zoozilla: Nope? Did that appear on my post? I can't see it now.

#26 Edited by irishalwaystaken (32 posts) -

Looked like a mods account was comprised (ZombiePie imo) or he just decided to screw with users. That poll and the him mentioning how to reset your chat cooldown was pretty suspect.

#28 Posted by frythefly (199 posts) -

Just got re-banned and re-unbanned. Great.

#29 Posted by TruthTellah (7641 posts) -

@meltbrain: @peasantabuse: The mods have said no mods were in chat at the time. Once once was in there, the chat got shutdown. So, it sounds more like the system rather than a mod account got compromised. They're actively working on it now.

I saw that too. Something very weird is going on.

This is a strange day in Giant Bomb history.

One of the engineer/tech guys rchen was there and he seemed pretty shocked about what was happening.

@irishalwaystaken: ZombiePie shutdown the stream; so, no, he was not behind this.

I don't think he did, rchen the chat engineer guy did.

#35 Edited by nihilisticmonkey (91 posts) -

I just got banned and unbanned. Something very very odd is going on.

#37 Edited by RazielCuts (2711 posts) -

@truthtellah: Why wouldn't there be any mod's in the chat for a live stream? That seems even more crazy.

#40 Edited by Scrawnto (2413 posts) -
#41 Edited by TruthTellah (7641 posts) -

@zoozilla: I see that, as well.

@razielcuts:

Yeah, that does sound weird, but that's what I've been told.

#45 Edited by ottoman673 (382 posts) -

Anyone remember that bizarre post of the guy declaring "war" on giant bomb that we all waved off as a troll a few weeks ago?

...just throwing that out there

#46 Edited by Meltbrain (2966 posts) -

Now OPs post is saying R.I.P. ?

This is definitely looking like someones (mod or staff) account has been compromised or there is an exploit in the system.
