This thread is for those of us that survived this last trip to the FOTB. We can share our stories, relive experiences, mourn the fallen, and also try to help each other readjust to normal society.

To begin, I'll share a story of my own. I don't remember when they came for me, when they took me away. I just remember waking up and no longer having access to the outside world. I was trapped, abandoned, and forgotten in the FOTB. I was unaware of what had happened. I received information of the outside world, my previous home (aka The Pit) through an anonymous source, known only as 'guest'. It was then that I learnt that Orson (aka theguitarist) had secretly and without warning altered the rules in the User Elimination thread. It was true, I was banned for two days.

I remember my first day in the FOTB. Many people were handling it well. Jackal had managed to smuggle in beer (though as far as I'm aware, he's the only one that drank it). Incognito took the formal stance, making one last final plea. He also dabbled in artwork, drawing pictures of our oppressors. Neo was probably the most vocal one, making sure we all knew how he felt about being banned. I tried to keep myself sane by posting updates on how I was doing. These updates were posted in lists from a-z, each letter representing its own update and/or thought.

Despite being able to hear about how each of us were doing, we weren't allowed to directly communicate. We found alternate means of speaking to each other. Some used smoke signals. Some used carrier pigeons. Some even tried to get close to a few of the oppressors and talk to them. I sent my updates out in massive carvings on stone. Not only did it take a long time to make a carving, but it was also quickly shut down, and one of the only forms of communication that was shut down. I remember that final message..."Live it up son" What a glorious message that was.

At long last, through protestation through the user known as captainsnazz, we were informed that the ban would not last much longer. We were being released! How long had it been, I began to wonder? How long had I been caged like a feral beast in that cold wasteland? I had begun to lost count, but at long last, the sun began to rise. Hope was on the horizon.


We were free.


Please feel free to share other stories.

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me."

That's forever imprinted in my brain in Dwight's voice. Seriously.

Somebody mentioned it on TC a couple hours ago and I was like, "what?"

He never drew a picture for it, though, so I seriously doubt he truly qualifies as the most desperate.

Your whole first ten posts were complaining about how you got nominated with only five points instead of the usual ten You were definitely complaining, the rest of us were surviving

Good to see the rest of you that got out I thought for a second only a few of us made it

I think not. what you think is bitching, is simply me being.... me.

Oh, you think FOTB is your ally. But you merely adopted the ban; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn't see the pit until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING!

I think the last time I got banned element (or whatever his name is now) made everyone solve a riddle to get unbanned, it was kinda fun.

it was like the survival training thing where they send you out in the woods, it sucked while it was going on but I think we all grew from it.

It was pretty lame, especially since I couldn't reply to Dwight's thread about that awful song about the sweater
banned
#36
yeah because I checked in there once or twice and realized it was boring and I didn't log into UG for the rest of the week, just browsed the Pit, which was hard because sometimes I'd be like "I really would like to share my opinion on this matter" but I couldn't because I was banned. It was so very sad

but that chapter of my life is behind me now
