I seriously hope you’re joking.
If you look at the source for that “informative” page, you’ll see the
link is such:
(a few %20s removed here)
(Again a few %20s removed)%20%20 target=_blank>
the file errpermission.asp file displays whatever message is passed in
the GET parameters. For example:
See the truth on Gamedev’s own
The page simply obfuscated the URL (note, %20 appears simply as a
enabled from seeing where the link goes in their statusbar.
If that’s a joke, it’s not a funny one. It’s called slander.
I don’t really follow what you’re talking about, but if it is a joke,
then I think it’s hillarious!
It’s a fake to dishonour gamedev.net
He created a page that copys gamedevs login error page but modified it
in a way so that one can provide the “error cause” text via the URL.
In his case, he wrote the racist error message in the URL himself.
Look at the URL, the message is encoded there.
You can change the URL in any way you like, look at what I did:Fake error message
It’s obviously a fake, and it’s not funny at all. I’m sure it’s illegal
to do that and the forum shouldn’t such acts to be broadcasted through
it. Since I’m new here I’m not sure what the punishment is, but does the
forum punish this type of behavior?
it’s being discussed at the moment
I think Butters simply fell for it. It’ll teach him to look thoroughly
at such things next time.
I’m not sure what “hillarious joke” means (I’m not english, you see) but
I find such fakes disgusting. If anyone should take action, it’s the
folks at gamedev.
This thread should be closed along with a clear statement that the
linked page is a fake.
Hey don’t look at me it’s not my site, I just posted the link
But your intention isn’t clear to me. Did you find it funny, a good joke
? Did you believe it ? Oh, asking that when everything has been cleared
doesn’t yield any value.
I believed it at first, because I simply wasn’t paying attention to the
address bar when I clicked the link.
They just patched it. No more “you cannot view this page because Baldurk
is a God”…
I notice now that the website linked in the OP,
http://gamedev.r8.org, is no longer active.
r8.org is a dynamic DNS service which means that it will redirect to an
IP. Luckily, I noted down that IP while the site was still up. It also
happens to match Butters IP.
Butters, you are a liar. You said the site is not yours, however it is
hosted on your IP. That cannot be a coincidence. Given that the site
just went down, I took the liberty of saving a mirror and putting it
I contacted Dave Astle on Gamedev.net, and he has fixed this page which
can potentially be abused.
