Pathetic Bill

In Malton, once players go inactive, few people remember their names other than some close friends and their obscure wiki userpages.
...Unless their names were Pathetic Bill.
Pathetic Bill was a group of 7 players (give or take a few) all named Pathetic Bill. They were PKers. But you already knew that (or you're very new).
Though they got their start in Eastonwood, killing the local groups there, they soon began to travel, terrorizing Huntley Heights, Richmond Hills, and promoting PK-Day, on 6/6/6. It was the success of PK Day that inspired D4rkness to create the PKA. At the PKA, their closely coordinated strikes caused them to be considered the best shock troops available by other groups, and the Bills were employed as such during the Rolt Heights War, various events against Fort Creedy and the CDF, and other long-term attacks like the Philosophe Knights' clearing of Richmond Hills.
The Bills were never a big group, or a particularly social group in the Metagame, but they live on in the memories of Malton's people because of their impact on the game population. They inspired successive generations of PKers (including Yours Truly) to take up PKing, at least two tribute groups, and dozens of similarly-named copy-cat killers. There was a time when seeing a Bill nearby would send survivors into a panic, and when having the Bills agree to show up to your PK event practically guaranteed success.
Pathetic Bill has won the MMA Most Notorious PKer Award Twice and the Biggest Pillaging Murderer Award once through the years of 2007, 2008, and 2009. Even now, without Historical status, Pathetic Bill is listed next to the Eastonwood Ferals as part of why Eastonwood is considered a Suburb of note.
So before you write something about how infamy alone does not lead to Historical status, or how they never brought the city to its knees, answer this: How many people will be eagerly emulating you and wearing your name when you've stopped playing this game?
(I wrote this quickly after realizing that the Bills were never nominated for Historical. I may have missed some important events in their timeline.) -DTPraise KnowledgePK 00:27, 8 July 2012 (BST)

YES (Pathetic Bill)

  1. Nominator Vote --DTPraise KnowledgePK 00:33, 8 July 2012 (BST)
  2. Definitely qualifies in my mind for PKing innovation even though it does so for many of the same reasons that I thought TX should get it for BHing innovation. I am curious to see how this pans out relative to the other active vote. --Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Sunday, 8 July 2012
  3. Prediction: This passes with flying colors. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 00:51, 8 July 2012 (BST)
  4. Yes, and this isn't just a bandwagon vote. They honestly deserve it for numerous reasons that should be obvious to anyone that's even mildly aware of them. Aichon 00:59, 8 July 2012 (BST)
  5. Yes. so fun to play with. i miss those guys. -- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!   אמת 01:08, 8 July 2012
  6. Yes - I wasn't around for the original incarnation, but their impact was still felt when I started out. For all of the reasons that have already been listed. But I'll also cite another that was only hinted at; the Pathetic Bills were so iconic that when they quit the game a void was created that was so big that another group formed in tribute to them. Name any other group that faded from Malton that was reborn in the form of a group run and crewed by entirely different players. Any other group that came back was run by and crewed by former members, no other group has ever inspired a tribute group. Especially one that was almost single handedly responsible for the PKer meta-game that we know today. -- Goribus 01:47, 8 July 2012 (BST)
    There was Sons of DARIS but as I understand it they were pitiful (see deleted wiki page). And then there was DORIS which I guess was more satire then tribute. I still see SLP to this day and in fact knew about SLP before I knew about Pathetic Bill (because I was PK'd by SLP not long after I started playing). Don't know if you can judge a group by their tributes, but for what its worth you could say that Pathetic Bill did inspire the longest running tribute group in UD history. ~Vsig.png 03:43, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
    The Silly Lilly Pillies never disbanded though. As far as I know it kept going and had a continual influx of new members. I know two or three of them, but only speak to one on a regular basis any more. If those girls ever disbanded I'd consider them a definite historical group as well. -- Goribus 21:18, 8 July 2012 (BST)
  7. Textbook historical group. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 01:49, 8 July 2012 (BST)
  8. One of the true classics in the game. Innovative, original and influential. --Papa Moloch 05:12, 8 July 2012 (BST)
  9. Legendary. (On a side note, is there an official UD definition of "historical group"?)--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 08:32, 8 July 2012 (BST)
    nice reading comprehension it's only at the top of page.-- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!   אמת 15:15, 8 July 2012
    Nice punctuation and grammar. It's a pity the definition is hidden away but even more of a pity that it's so broad as to be practically useless ("Groups are added to historical groups if they have made an impact on the way the game is played or otherwise contributed to the history of Malton").--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 19:56, 9 July 2012 (BST)
    Very true about the definition being kind of buried and practically useless when dug up. The second point has been made many, many a time. Why we can't just end the sentence at 'played' I don't know. --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 23:35, 9 July 2012 (BST)
  10. As per Papa Moloch. --WanYao 15:41, 8 July 2012 (BST)
  11. A classic application of misrepresentation to inspire terror. I thought they were one person for the longest time. I don't care much about the PKing events, but everything else Tom says plays. --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 16:34, 8 July 2012 (BST)
  12. Most definitely! --Akbar 19:04, 8 July 2012 (BST)
  13. This and SLP would be pretty straight forward votes. Pathetic Bill had RRF level name recognition, and for good reason. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 20:14, 8 July 2012 (BST)
  14. Yes. Asheets 17:08, 9 July 2012 (BST)
  15. yes. Though i wasn't even aware that they were gone. I just assumed the aPathetic Bill's (and similar) were part of the same crew. --Honestmistake 00:21, 10 July 2012 (BST)
  16. Yes! These guys were the human monsters in the zombie apocalypse. No other group came close to how scary these guys were. --Karloth Vois ¯\(°_o)/¯ 10:26, 10 July 2012 (BST)
  17. Was never killed by them, but I witnessed many murders (the first time was a joint effort with Goolina, I remember being quite the starstruck noob). As Karloth, as a new survivor, these guys' wiki page and the surrounding reputation they had really had me scared, but also in awe. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 16:09, 11 July 2012 (BST)

Allahu Akbar!!! - With 21 votes for Yes and just one facetious vote for No, the glorious PKer conspiracy has successfully pushed Pathetic Bill to the everlasting paradise that is Historical Group. May each of the Bills enjoy the virgins given to them by supreme Allah. --Papa Moloch 17:21, 22 July 2012 (BST)

Red Rum

Once the biggest ever group of murderers in this game, I had a lot of fun with these guys when we were shooting people and each other (I genuinely didn't expect to get shot by my own team quite so much, but it always made me laugh). Probably our most impressive stuff was when 10-30 of us would show up at once and kill everyone we could see, but my particularly favourite bits were the stupid things we did, like our Tea Party in the Blackmore Building. We combat revived the RRF holding the place, barricaded it up and then, when people started turning up proclaiming it was back in survivor hands, we shot them too. Hurray!

Here's some of the stuff we did below, but there was also a lot of cool stuff with other groups, whether we helped organise it (like the St. Valentine's Cherubs) or just turned up to have some fun (too many PKA events to list!). Thanks for all the good times! --Karloth Vois ¯\(°_o)/¯ 13:18, 6 April 2012 (BST)

  2. While their impact on the game as a whole may be perhaps up for discussion, they seemed to be a successful PK group back in the day. Well known by the public at large, while maintaining a style of their own that set them apart from the pack. Decent enough, so a yes. -- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 13:47, 6 April 2012 (BST)

  8. Red Rum was for a very long time the very biggest PKer group - and that continuously, while most PKer groups tend to fade away as fast as they rise. If you even consider to vote "no", your perception is seriously weird. -- Spiderzed 16:29, 6 April 2012 (BST)

They are one of the few reasons this category exists. Bravo, Karl and company. Come visit me, or I shall cry. --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 18:20, 7 April 2012 (BST)
  17. The single most infamous PKer group in all of Malton. I don't care who you are or how new you are to the meta-game, you have heard of Red Rum. And most of you at some point have either joined us or been shot by us. Oh and Axe, I've been false flagging for awhile. I'm in Ed's Peasant Militia, I just didn't want to spoil the surprise for you lot. I've also been tagging up as 'Wanderer' for revives.

    Nay - Criteria states: "1. Groups must no longer actively contribute to the game." I assume you guys are still together in game? Do you still want to edit the Red Rum page? If so, then you'll have to wait to get included as a Historical Group. Recall that The Dead had to make a new page, rather than reopen the old one. Now, if Red Rum basically says: "Yeah, we're done." Then I will be willing to change my vote. --Akule Maker of fine, hand-crafted UDWiki sass since 2006 -- Akule School's back in session™ 22:03, 6 April 2012 (BST)

  28. Who? Never heard of… all, right, yes, the jig is up. Red Rum brought a whole new side of the game to life for me, probably the side that'll live with me the longest. We had some wacky antics, never took things too seriously, and had policies that had me in stitches (like the friendly fire policy which drove Grim s to distraction with our mathematical proof.) I'm particularly proud of killing my way through most of the leadership, including managing to stalk our illustrious founder Zaruthustra over the course of a week, and of keeping the group going for a while there when I accidentally fell into a leadership position, a fact that I am also proud of concealing for as long as possible, to the point where after I'd handed over the reigns there were still people who didn't know I was in the group. While we're here, let's give it up for Blue Bourbon, Green Gin, Amber Ale, Alliterative Alcoholics, Ryker & Emil Demolition: Removing Unsafe Masonry, Red Elves Delivering Roses Under Moonlight, Friends of the Featherstone Library and all the other wonderful cover groups that had us shooting anyone wearing "Red Rum" tags as "clear impostors".

    I'll miss this group, but really, after infiltrating every other group in the game, what other goals did we have left?

    I suppose we could do a big reveal of all our lifetime members, just to see who's shocked?… no mention of the group is complete without Sirens Discord, a very polarising figure for anyone who knew him/her, and who kept the forums going for the group for years after leaving active play. Also, IneptOne, our stealth reviver (who may or may not have pioneered the concept)… Dux Ducis, a fun guy who got eaten by RL and I'm sure is a successful executive somewhere now… Jennifer Thrush for being one scary and wonderful lady, our Muse in all things… Gunner92 for IRC hilarity… OK, now I think I'm just rambling. I'll miss you, Red Rum.

    Of course, I can think of no more fitting epitaph than "that strange couplet from the book of Al'hazred, the Mad Arab: “That is not dead which can eternal lie / And with strange aeons, even death may die.”"

    Now, Karl, where'd you put the damn Biscuit Tin? I could use a Jaffa cake!

Channel 4 News Team

I'm still a little confused as to why I'm the one to do this, having Mr. Burgundy or another iconic member come back to do it would have been a fitting end for the group. But anyway, reports from one of its older members confirm that the group has been without activity for quite some time. According to forum and wiki activity the group has been inactive for many months, well past the 4 month waiting period for historical group nominations.

Again, I really don't know what to say about C4NT because I assume that if you're anyone who's anyone you already know what there is to know. They were led by the hilarious Ron Burgundy till 2008, probably one of the only real legendary survivors of UD, and have had a huge influence and impact in UD's earlier history, most famously the Battle of Blackmore, and also the first, second and third sieges of Caiger Mall. As a new ~2007 user, my bedtime lullabies were stories of Ron Burgundy and his quests for Glorious Battle, something I'm sure many of today's users can relate to. I only joined C4NT for a short period of time but in that small amount I had a ball, they were great players and funny roleplayers.

So here is the nomination I guess. Again, not really sure if I should add anything, since I'm assuming anyone who's been here for more than a few months will recognise them as historical in a splitsecond, but if you have more to add just add it below here I guess, or in your vote. I really liked C4NT and it's sad to see it go but It'll also be really fitting to finally see them go into Historical Groups (hopefully).

Note: I'm also aware that C4NT are still on the stats page too, with about 10 members. I think these may be stragglers similar to those who still had the group tag despite inactivity from the core group members, like when say The Dead's voting went forth. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 03:34, 24 June 2011 (BST)

Didn't give her all my love, I guess now I got my payback. Now I'm in the club thinkin all about my baby. Hey, she was so easy to love. But wait, I guess that love wasn't enough. I'm goin through it every time that I'm alone. And now i'm missin, wishin she'd pick up the phone. But she made a decision that she wanted to move one. Cuz I was wrong.

(To The) Four Winds

The group has officially disbanded after losing its fight against dwindling numbers and the shock and void left by the death of the well-loved and highly active player behind Brother Angst. (To The) Four Winds was created in September 2006 as an entirely, totally, 100% mobile revive group, with no home suburb whatsoever. As far as I am aware, it was an entirely new concept at the time and we believe we were the first pro-survivor group to run from suburb to suburb managing revive points and helping local groups rebuild their homes. We somewhat set a model, with groups following suit later, such as the Dribbling Beavers detaching the mobile Bouncing Beavers during the Second Big Bash. We started by following the Big Bash step by step. At our best in late 2006, we were able to attend requests in 2 hours maximum time, despite being only 29. During the Second Big Bash, even with numbers no higher than 12 (and usually much less than that), we were quick, good and respected enough to feature, with others, in Uncle Zeddie’s “Radio Survivor” episode 31 (http://radiosurvivor.blogspot.com, “Darth Zeddie” episode, around min 2:10; March 31st 2008). We have now gone, but we think we set a premiere in a way of playing the game and we also changed the survivor’s mentality from deeply suburb rooted to more mobile minded; thus, for what I believe to be these main contributions to the game, I nominate the group for Historical status.

  1. Yes - Nominator's vote. Besides, I think being the first truly mobile reviver group is historical. --Aureus 14:30, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Flowers of Disease

Flowers of Disease have disbanded and they have been a strong PKer presence in Malton for years. I have had the pleasure in battling them in the streets myself as a Bounty Hunter. Their Campaigns were often well organized against any who they deemed a target. You could always expect them to be part of any PKA organized attacks or get together. From Samhain Slaughter and Samhain Slaughter 2. The Malton Uprising, and Silent Night Slaughter at Fort Creedy. That is why I am nominating them for Historical Status.

  34. No - I like the Flowers a lot, both as players and as people, but I don't see in what way they can genuinely be considered significant enough to be an historical group. They were all very good at what they did - probably the best 'griefing' team in the game - but to me that's not enough. Too often nowadays the historical tag is used simply to differentiate between good and bad groups, hence the number of middling groups who now bear the accolade (Ghetto Cow spring immediately to mind). Flowers of Disease were undoubtedly good, but for me an historical group needs to have made a difference to the game itself. Sadly I don't think that they achieved that, so my vote here has to be no. --Papa Moloch 00:21, 24 October 2009 (BST)
    At least you said no in a good way :D --Michalesonbadge.pngTCAPD(╯°□°)╯ ┻━┻ 00:26, 24 October 2009 (BST)
  35. Yes - The Flowers were famous for their group tactics and warfare strategy. I can't help but see anyone saying "no" as being butthurt by the fact that either A) they'll never be in a historical group they made or B) were stomped into the ground by the Flowers. If you need proof of why they deserve historical group status, well look up Samhain Slaughter and Silent Night Slaughter. Goribus 01:18, 24 October 2009 (BST)
    If you can't see 'no' votes in any other way than those that you outline then you have a truly risible understanding of both the voters concerned and of the game itself. --Papa Moloch 01:29, 24 October 2009 (BST)
    Most of the 'no' votes come from TZH and other Pro Survivor groups that the Flowers have come in contact with. I'm also blunt, and don't give a fuck about pretending I know everything about a browser game on the internet. If I'm wrong then I'm wrong, but I can't help but see most, if not all, of the 'no' votes as spite. However, do correct me if I'm wrong. That's always more helpful than snide comments. Goribus 01:50, 24 October 2009 (BST)
    That you have the audacity to make, yes, a snide remark about 'snide' remarks, having posted, yes again, a snide remark ('I can't help but see anyone saying "no" as being butthurt by the fact that either A) they'll never be in a historical group they made or B) were stomped into the ground by the Flowers.') only serves to demonstrate that you are not only a poor commentator, but also something of a fool. TZH are twats (no surprise to anyone there), but Wan Yao and DDR have been around a long time and do not vote in enmity. As for me, Hibernaculum and I have been meta-game friends for a couple of years. I voted no because for me they do not fit the tag 'Historical' as they lack lasting influence. But naturally, anyone who disagrees with you must be 'butthurt' and lack any other reason for their decision, right? --Papa Moloch 02:03, 24 October 2009 (BST)
    Most =/= Moloch. I can't stress that enough. I'm sorry you decided to jump up and say "Fuck you! I'm not being spiteful" when it wasn't directed at you. It was directed at TZH, the Umbrella guy, and anyone else being spiteful. All you really had to do is say something along the lines of "I've known them for years, and I don't agree.", but no. You jump up and make a scene. And over what? You thinking some stranger on the internet thinks you're being a dick? *shrugs* Sorry man, but I think you need to calm down. You're taking shit that wasn't aimed at you personally. You know what? If you want to continue arguing let's do it on our talk pages or in PMs, or where ever. This ain't the place for it. Goribus 02:17, 24 October 2009 (BST)
    You don't have a clue about my voting motivation, so don't call me out for something you don't know about. I heard only once or twice from FOD, and I have never met any member of them. If you don't like my personal opinion then just stay away. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 16:30, 24 October 2009 (BST)
    I will say Moloch though I don't agree with you (and I think the disparity is in what we interpret is and isn't considered "historical"), I respect your opinion. At least your decision was made based on what you believe, not because you were crushed by the FOD and are still upset over it like the TZH chumps. Which is what Goribus took issue with. Lets leave it at this then and let the vote play out. My opinion is that we were not as historical as some already considered historical but more historical than others. Certainly as Pkers, I think we did enough during our time to warrant consideration. - HIB
    Everyone's interpretation of "lasting" or "Historical" is quite different from each other.I voted yes because the Flowers and Hib made a big difference to me personally as mentors.The Flowers were one group that affected my game play, and because of this, indirectly effected the game as a whole. One of the reasons LoD is growing strong as a Death Cult/PK group is because of how they played. A long time ago I watched from a distance as best as I could on how they conducted themselves. I read forum banter, watched them in game ect. to help me be a better leader. Now you could say, is this relevant or lasting? Why yes, it is to me. These votes are of a personal opinion and The Flowers of Disease made a lasting impression on me, which indirectly effected the game. In my opinion, this is well deserving of a yes vote. I am only but one voice. Freedom of opinion and an equal right to vote is Democracy. It's not perfect but it will be the ruling factor here.AU10Pantomime Mistress of Pain┌∩┐()┌∩┐03:33, 24 October 2009 (BST)
    As far as I can see the formal criteria for being a historical group no longer includes having a lasting influence on the game. Is that right? --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 18:10, 24 October 2009 (BST)
    +1, Mr. Dignam.-- SA 17:43, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
  36. No I don't feel the Flowers impacted my gameplay or the others around me. Therefore, I do not think they are historical. Now don't get it wrong, they were pretty amazing, but not quite historical. --RahrahCome join the #party!09:47, 24 October 2009 (BST)

    You know you sound like every other fucking trenchcoater with an over-inflated opinion of himself and his lame-assed group. Just thought I'd mentioned that....
    I never encountered your group. To me, you were nothing but a wiki page a tiny bit of hype (mostly created by your feud with fellow attention-whores, TZH). You never had any impact on the game that I play, you changed nothing and contributed nothing original to UD/Malton. So, no matter how awesome you may think your group was, they aren't historical. --WanYao 14:13, 24 October 2009 (BST)

    Ahhhh, good to see we can still cause a ruckus amongst those who don't like us even when we've closed shop. Anyway, take a pill and settle down Wanny boy. Perhaps the concept of humour has escaped you but he was saying it tongue in cheek. lets get the historical definition straight since there seems to be some confusion. Here is the policy definition that is laid out on this page for obtaining historical status. Groups are added to historical groups if they have made an impact on the way the game is played or otherwise contributed to the history of Malton. So we never had any impact on the game you play? So you actually play then? And not just do your best impersonation of WOOT on Brianstock? Think on this. How many groups have actually made an impact on the way the game is played? If that's the only criteria, you better remove everyone but The DEAD. And maybe there is a place for the DEM when they are done and possibly the RRF. Thats it. The others all fall into the second category and that is otherwise contributed to the history of Malton. Now that contribution is up for debate which is what this vote is about. We earned the respect of our peers (as you can see from the votes), helped plan the 3 biggest Pker strikes in the game in the last two years, and had one of the highest, if not the highest kill count of any Pker group over that span. Basically, you really don't follow the game much if you think all we did was attack TZH. TZH was one campaign which lasted just over a month. And the hype was created by them, not us. We could care less about them but they still carry on as if it happened yesterday. I've seen your posts before at BS WAN. And it's always negative, pontificating...like the rest of us are all a bunch of dummies and your word is gospel. By your own admission, you never encountered us but yet to you we were just a wiki page and hype. Good to see you made your judgment based on the facts. Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course. If you honestly think we aren't worthy of consideration, so be it. Vote NO. But it would be nice if the opinion would be based on some sort of fact or true belief and not just I've never encountered you but Your a lame assed group and you're just a wiki page and hype. I don't like you. Sorry Moloch. Goribus was right. Wanny's vote has as much merit as TZH's. Just another guy with an axe to grind. -- HIB

    Wow. I've voted against a LOT of whiney trenchcoater groups who yelled and screamed at every No voter who wasn't willing to acknowledge their obvious greatness -- but you guys really take the take. Really, really, really sorry if your in-game antics made no difference to my gameplay or impacted the culture of Malton as far as I am concerned. Also really, really, really sorry if the only place you seem to know me from is Brainstock -- a shyte board full of shyte trolls which I never took seriously. Maybe you were big and mighty there, but as I said, I considered Brainstock a joke and treated it as such. Maybe if you'd influenced some stuff over at Barhah.com... maybe if you'd made a difference to groups like COMBAT REVIVE / The Big Prick or 404: Barhah not found... Or to events like the Second Big Bash... Maybe then I'd have voted Yes. But, you didn't... So quit whining like such butthurt morons. Oh... and your idea of focusing on PKing lame and stupid survivor groups was most certainly not original or new. --WanYao 01:19, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
    Wan, someone made a silly joke. You came out of nowhere acting like an absolute asshole. Hib's mistake was responding to your trolling, not being "butthurt" about your vote. Nobody cares about your vote, or was interested in your description about what it would have taken to get it. You were insulting and got an unhappy response. Congratulations. If you feel the need to continue this, please do it in a manner other than a collection of insults designed to cause an internet pissing contest. --Allan Friedman 04:11, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
    You're obviously reading a completely different thread than me... I am far from alone in thinking that FoD are not worthy of historical status and neither am I alone in my reasons for considering the nomination unjustified. Meanwhile, several of FoD supporters have been saying that those voting "No" were either personally butthurt by the group or just ignorant for not having heard of them. News flash: most of us are neither. And, if I choose to defend myself vigorously in the face of such an comments... well... if that makes me a troll... Brave for me, where's my lumpy wooden club?
    Meanwhile, seeing as a significant minority of users -- many of whom know UD very well and have been part of the communtiy for a long time -- are in agreement with me... my opinion isn't as irrelevant as you'd like to make out. Anyhooo... I'll let you go back to being a pot calling a kettle black now. Cheers and thanks for your "valuable input"! --WanYao 12:48, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
    If you think you were defending your views, perhaps we are reading two different threads. Because in the one I'm reading, there had been exactly one negative comment made about the "no" voters when you jumped all over Michaelson. It wasn't made by him, or a member of any of his groups for that matter. So if your intent was to "defend yourself vigorously" I suggest that next time you aim your defense at somebody who has actually attacked you in some way. --Allan Friedman 18:39, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
    When I used the word "thread" I meant the entire conversation taking place here. If you'd been reading this page instead of making lame attempts to insult me, you'd know exactly what I was talking about, i.e. every No voter getting called "butthurt" or "stupid" because they don't agree that FoD merit historical status. You can pretend you don't know what I'm talking about... you can pretend that I had no justification in calling out yet another egoist trenchcoater whinging and crying over someone's No vote... but the facts will be against you. --WanYao 21:53, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
    Christ, I knew what you meant by thread. I'll make this simple for you. On this page, this entire fucking page, there was exactly one negative generalization of the 'no' voters when you decided to attack Michaelson. That comment was not written by Michaelson. It wasn't written by a member of any of his groups. Now you have claimed repeatedly you were insulting him to defend against people lumping all the 'no' voters as butthurt. Do you seriously not see why that makes no sense?--Allan Friedman 23:06, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
    Butthurt? Chumps? Ladies, get a fucking grip. You think TZH were butthurt by a bunch of shit mushrooms? FOD were failures. Thats the point. They failed to butthurt us. There was no pwnage, there was no fight. They weren't even fun. They killed a tiny number of our guys compared to those that we took down of theirs. It was fucking hilarious. I could fill pages with screenshots if I gave enough of the shit they gobble to do it. But I don't. Oops. The only one butthurt here are the fools that put time into this lame ass group. Historical? The pwnage I laid on the toilet this morning had more history. And every one of you chumps that jumped on the TZH hate wagon can get bent too, you're just as tired and lame ass as the FOD. Next thing you know you'll be beggin for historical status too, and once again I'll have to be the only one around here with eyes to see who will have to let you know just how insignificant you really are. Now lets hear the hate, DANCE puppets, dance. BALLS TO THE WHALLS! --Dhavid Grohl 04:32, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

  39. Yes - I respect Moloch's opinion and double-checked the definition of a historical group. "Historical groups if they have made an impact on the way the game is played or otherwise contributed to the history of Malton." (right from the policy discussion of Historical Groups) Now, I have not been playing long so I cannot comment with confidence on what kind of impact FOD has had, but I have read enough about various events to know that they have helped shape things. If we consider events like the Samhain Slaughter, etc to be events worthy of note, then I think FOD qualifies as a historical group. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 19:04, 24 October 2009 (BST)
  40. Yes - simply yes. --Sir WV 19:31, 24 October 2009 (BST)
  41. Yes - History should be recorded for anything... to lose the history of a grain of sand is a tragedy, to purposefully delete the history of entire group is an atrocity. -Devorac 22:05, 24 October 2009 (BST)
  42. No - Negatory. "Good group" and "classy players" and all that noise is totally irrelevant. This is about whether or not they're historical, and... I just don't see it. - Subotei's Crotch 22:13, 24 October 2009 (BST)
    Wow, this is a great read. It seems most of the no's are from folks who never really knew the FoD or, got there asses handed to them by the FoD.I can tell you that I started this game sometime in 2005 and wandered around doing the survivor thing long enough to get to level 41, and then got bored and subsequently stopped playing for quite a while. Then one day I was logged in and doing some research and found the FoD! Oh, what a glorious day that was. I went through the process of joining the group and it was balls to the walls for around 2 years! Great folks, great PK'ers (some of them, the BEST I have ever seen) and Great fun!
    They made me a far better player and most defiantly changed the game in my eye's.--Roland 00:02, 25 October 2009 (BST)
    Can you and the other punks stop crying every time someone fucking votes against? Fact: Butthurt players ALWAYS vote against in historical nominations. Deal with it. Fact: This nomination is going to pass despite their votes, so who cares? Fact: You idiots are behaving more butthurt by retaliating to EVERY no vote with such ferocity. Just shut the fuck up and let the voting progress, sheesh. You are going to pass, stop doing it so ungraciously. It's disgusting. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 01:06, 25 October 2009 (BST)

    Yes- I was a member back in the day. Simply put I felt we were the best at what we did for a long time. FOD certainly helped create a unique niche in the city by means of "educating" many a group. They were "anti useless survivor" making them pro survivor in a warped kinda way. I thought that was a great angle to work from, and certainly a first. As others have mentioned Hib was vital in the planning and success of many of the cities biggest pk outings ever. I can't say to what was after I left, but as far as I know, they were still takin names and kickin ass. Are they worthy of historical status?....I think so. Bootsy funk Improperly signed. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 01:06, 25 October 2009 (BST)

  46. No - Never heard of you, and I've been around since 2005. And the best "griefer" groups were ASS and Gankbus in my book, not to mention DARIS. Superior tactics and efficiency always is nice but not enough to be considered historic. --DarthRevan 06:24, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

  52. No - "Groups are added to historical groups if they have made an impact on the way the game is played or otherwise contributed to the history of Malton." In other words, this is simply a popularity contest. Nothing against the FOD but, as WOOT, they were a little too much like the Philosophe Knights, who really did change the way the game is played. --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 16:17, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
  53. Yes - I see most of the No voters are non-PKers who have no idea what contributions FoD have made, which tells me their vote is based on popularity instead of substance. FoD has done quite well. --Headless gunner W! 19:28, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
    Is it yours and a few others job to try and justify why people voted no? It doesn't matter why. There's also no reason to make comments which you have almost no evidence to back you up. The fact you use the phrase "no idea what contributions FoD have made..." tells me that they are fully entitled to vote no based on that, as, for historical staus, the group must have made an impact. If they didn't feel that impact, they why would they vote yes? --RahrahCome join the #party!19:33, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
    I see that most of the Yes voters are PKers who have no idea what contributions FoD have made, which tells me their vote is based on popularity instead of substance. More seriously, please do not accuse those who disagree with you of being ignorant simply because their are on the other side of the lines. It is just as likely that any one of the "No" votes came from an ignorant/"butthurt" survivor as it is that any of the "Yes" votes came from a PKer who just wanted to support their friends without consideration of what it means to be "historic". There's no need for all this bitching and drama going back-and-forth on account of oh who the hell am I kidding it's the Wiki.

    If you look at the first vote Nominator vote you'll see it's a Bounty Hunter, also a few other yes votes are Bounty Hunters as well. That should tell you not all Yes votes are PKers. I also agree that where the game is now there is no possible way a group can change the way the game is. So You will have to go with otherwise contributed to the history of Malton for Historical consideration. FOD although Loved by Some and Hated by others has contributed to the history of Malton. I tangled with them myself back when I first started playing the game, they contributed to my history by helping me be less trenchy as a Bounty Hunter. --Josh Clark 03:21, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Result

Voting Over. At the conclusion of the vote I see 62 votes. 44 yay versus 18 nay. With a percentage of 70.1% FOD have passed the vote to become a historical group. You may all now dispute this by saying some votes were not of the allowable Yes/No format or that they are incorrectly signed or that sock puppetry was used. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge!

Agreed. I say all Yay votes should be thrown out as PKers are inherently incapable of casting votes which conform to the Wiki's Expected Purposes. PKers are merely popularity-meters, and only voted because every PKer loved the Flowers of Disease. Hibernaculum, Rob Collick, and the other FoD core members were so charming to everyone they met, so outgoing with the general community, and made so many friends that their minimal impact on the game, the suburbs, and groups and people they met is ignored. All this voting is merely a measure of how many best-buds they made in their time as PKers.
This is a Sham. A mockery of the good Wiki Voting Tradition. This is a Vote Which Shall Live In Infamy!
Before someone takes this seriously, it should be noted that the FoD rarely made friends outside of necessity, made lots of people - including many PKers - very upset, gained a lot of contempt from certain PKer groups because they didn't conform to the general expectation that PKers be friendly, and forced the groups they attacked to change the way they operated on a daily basis (including one group which turned to zerging in order to defend itself) permanently. Yet those same people they upset voted Yes. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 04:33, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

My "the Dead" is disbanded. The Dead responsible for all of this is no more. I seriously doubt that any members of The Dead (2.0 or The Next Generation) will have any wiki presence. All of the "known" members - Katthew and well, anyone on V/B - have long since retired. The Dead will never have this kind of impact again. And if for some odd reason it does, then I will make sure the goons come up with a new name and not be assholes.--Globetrotters Icon.png #99 DCC 19:17, 15 June 2009 (BST)

Yes

  1. For/Vouch/Pro etc What can I say about the dead that hasn't been said before? Creating an apocalypse in a game that is apocalyptic itself. Good times it were. Some intentions like "breaking the game" were perhaps not so noble but in the end, you provided unseen excitement in the sometimes dull city of Malton. --Thadeous Oakley 23:33, 13 June 2009 (BST)
    On a side note, wouldn't it be better to nominate the March of the Dead as a historical event? This because this group is still active and such.--Thadeous Oakley 23:35, 13 June 2009 (BST)

No

  1. No - Fails crit 1 "Groups must no longer actively contribute to the game." Perhaps you can vote yes on historical event status for the March of The Dead.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 01:38, 14 June 2009 (BST)
    Both you and HonestMistake are retarded. the dead leadership cannot get all of their 1500 members to remove their tags. The group is dead but the characters are still used by players. Criteria 1 does not mean active characters but active groups. The group is not active. Kill yourself. --Sonny Corleone DORIS I jizzed in my pants pr0n 03:05, 14 June 2009 (BST)
    So, a group's official, or "defacto" leader decides whether or not that group exists, without regard to the remaining 249 members? I didn't get that memo. Prior to killing myself I think that point should be clearly defined, since the only real question on The Dead's historical status is whether or not they are "active". --GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 04:25, 14 June 2009 (BST)
    I bet there are still members that have The Dead of Dunell Hills tags (less than 10). But basically, I was the leader during the March. I say the group is dissolved as far as the wiki is concerned.--Globetrotters Icon.png #99 DCC 18:04, 14 June 2009 (BST)
  2. yes and no Certainly one of the biggest things ever to happen to the game and certainly worthy of inclusion... On the other hand Historical Groups are supposed to be defunct so technically the Dead are unlikely to become historical in that sense.--Honestmistake 01:43, 14 June 2009 (BST)
  3. Vouch, but needs Crit 1 - As Giles. They deserve historical status, but currently have too many members still acting, or at least with "The Dead" in their group tags. --Private Mark 01:55, 14 June 2009 (BST)
    To all three of you, it has been kind of decided that if the leader of the group officially disbands a group, it's considered defunct. That's what DCC is doing, as he's the defacto leader of The Dead. The group is done, it's just that people aren't going to idle out or stop wearing a name tag just because a group is done. Hell, Ghetto Cow had something like 15 or so people on the stats page still when we went up for historical because our members were too lazy or too stubborn to remove the tag. But because Lach nominated it, it was considered defunct.--Mr. Angel, Help needed? 02:05, 14 June 2009 (BST)
    The Angel has spoken. Any large group is going to leave splinter groups and remnants behind once it collapses, and one as large as The Dead was makes an even bigger imprint. That The Dead's remnants still consistently rank as the top 1 or 2 placed groups on the Stats Page is testament to their worthiness for Historical Status. The only single group that ever brought down the Wrath of Kevan. 90% Syringe search rates for God's sake. I was expecting crucifixes to suddenly gain powers and witness Survivors REPELLING zombies with cries of "The Power of Kevan Compels You!". All this from a single group. If these guys don't deserve Historical Status, no one does.--Zombie Lord 02:25, 14 June 2009 (BST)
  4. Making a group that is still the largest in the game, historical? Hysterical. Active? Always will be -- boxy talkteh rulz 04:24 14 June 2009 (BST)
    You're just pissed because we got you voted out and Grim voted in as Crat. It's ok. Maybe you should ask Iscariot what to think? --Globetrotters Icon.png #99 DCC 18:07, 14 June 2009 (BST)
    It's not exactly the same group. When they had 1,500 members, it was something totally different that Malton had never seen before. I don't know, maybe we can have some kind of protected historical event page dedicated to their flood or something. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 04:26, 14 June 2009 (BST)
    I'd vote for it if a page was created to document what the Dead was pre-2009. As it is now, the page is of almost no historical interest though -- boxy talkteh rulz 04:33 14 June 2009 (BST)
    Well, thing is, that page has no relevance to the current Dead - it mostly shows stats from the first major Dead uprising. Even then, it's through links and not directly on the page. Hence, why I'm for making that page historical (maybe moving it as well) and possibly asking a Dead authorized Wiki denizen to make a more relevant page about the current active group. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 05:23, 14 June 2009 (BST)
    No current active Dead member will touch this shithole wiki. The mark we left on the wiki (our talk pages, our various VB cases, our policy that KEVAN himself had to veto to kill, etc.) those are more meaningful than an article forced to be neutral and still reflect our group.--Globetrotters Icon.png #99 DCC 18:04, 14 June 2009 (BST)
    Giles is right, the whole idea of having the de facto leader say "GROUP DISBANDED" when they are still remenants shows to me that The Dead isn't, well, dead. That being said, if you just wait for a few more months, and that wiki page doesn't get updated, then I can be assured that The Dead will remain Dead, and I'll change it to vouch.--ShadowScope'the true enemy' 06:22, 14 June 2009 (BST)
    The page has been locked for over a year, numbnuts. We didn't even create it in the first place. Ask old Connie about that mess. But clearly, this wait and see idea is stellar.--Globetrotters Icon.png #99 DCC 18:04, 14 June 2009 (BST)

  7. no Still having double the numbers of others groups doesn't make them inactive. Besides, I thought the dead were against a big wiki prescence. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 16:05, 14 June 2009 (BST)
    We aren't on the wiki anymore. Just me. You all suck. But this is a test to see if the wiki is really about UD or about you asshole users (not you ross so much) that just want to use it to stroke your lame ass RP fantasies. There is no fucking denying that the Dead changed the whole game, but if they don't get historical status because of some shitstain policy that should kill any last thought that this wiki is really about UD. If the ONLY group that has ever had an impact in EVERY SUBURB gets denied then seriously stop pretending this wiki is about UD. Go back to posting your lame ass *sips beer, loads shotgun*--Globetrotters Icon.png #99 DCC 18:04, 14 June 2009 (BST)

Zom/historical

Pro-Survivor group Zom was started by no real leader, but by a board called /zom/ on a certain website. Starting in late 2006, /zom/ has grown over the years and hit a peak of 160 active members, becoming part of the top 3 groups of Urban Dead. Looking at the /zom/ wiki, you can see that /zom/ has embarked on many endeavors to save Malton from the zombie rapscallions.

Just a few of many things we are proud of being a part of is The Fight to Hold Ackland Mall, reclaiming Southall Mansion and calling it our own, and entering the top 3 groups of UD with 160 active members.

I believe /zom/ deserves the historical status on the Urban Dead wiki because every one of the /zom/ members have fought a good fight, possibly changing Malton for the better, and it would be an honor if we got historical status for all our hard work over the years.

Please vote and tell us what you think. --Hkl.png.Ryanon.Tophat.png [Talk] [HKL] [/zom/] [Red Rum] 21:32, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

  3. Yes - A very rare yes from me, not only was it big enough that it existing alone had an impact it's one of the few survivor groups I frequently ran into as a zombie. --Karekmaps?! 22:28, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
  4. Yes /zom/ has made a very large impact in Urban Dead and deserve to be historical. --Speels 22:33, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
  5. Yes As per Karek --Agent Sandman 22:42 22 January 2009 (UTC)
  6. Yes Definite yes vote from me. Not only did /zom/ do a lot to aid the survivor cause, but they were a hell of a lot of fun. They're still on the stats page, but their core membership has died, and their IRC channel has died. They definitely deserve recognition. Hardcore Rockabilly, Retired FAE Axes High AH RR RRF 22:46 22 January 2009 (UTC)
  7. Yes ^ Pretty much that. ^ They did a lot for the game, the stats page is more or less irrelevant. If I switch my group tags to "The Caiger Resistance Front" does that mean they aren't historical anymore?--Labine50 MEMS | MHG | 5MoC 23:27, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

  27. Yes - From the start, /zom/ dove into Shearbank headfirst, unable to tell its ass from its head. Though its reputation and first impressions were shaky-the few willing to control the group struggled to keep its collective minds from running amok-they still gave their best effort into coexisting with their fellow survivors. There were many accusing fingers pointed toward their top hats. Conflict and suspicions had arisen by the dozen. However, the majority of the group always had good intentions in mind. After /zom/ finally gave up on living peacefully in Shearbank, they uprooted and made their way to Southall. When The Dead rose, they stood and fought against The Dead's many faces. Their history was littered with mall sieges and general pro-survival help efforts. They put efficiency first, and bragging second. As they had no idea who to boast about their efforts to, their roles in many of the sieges became almost invisible. Their members were faceless, and their numbers too many to count. They made their contributions, even if you didn't see them. They were a group that had fun whenever it had the chance, but it didn't fuck around when someone needed help.--Parkourartist 05:07, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

  13. No - I've seen them on the wiki and in-game, but I do not think that their contributions merit historical status. --ZsL 02:41, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

  17. No - A larger group shows up en masse and causes friction through misunderstanding with established groups and players? Uh, PTT did that years before /zom/. They basically gave the same experience point building drills most groups put their members through and called it an "xp orgy." The only thing surprising is they thought they were doing something original. They had ambitious plans to make various "landmarks" their HQ and ultimately failed in short order ... also nothing new. /Zom/ were funny, but they in no way matched the ULC. They thought they were something, but so doesn't every group. If someone can point to a specific event or, even better, tradition or tradition they're responsible for I'll change my vote, but everything here just reads like another outside game group showing up and being basically tourists for a summer. Nice of them to stop by, but no need for a monument. The group that came by a few months later and joined as a few thousand almost game breaking zombies, they were historic.--The Envoy 15:41, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
  18. No - I normally don't vote unless I've seen a group in action in-game, but I'm making an exception based on Zom's own justification above. As Iscariot said, being old and big doesn't merit historical status, nor does taking part in a mall siege (actually, I'd be more impressed if they'd never been involved in one of those). They seem like good eggs, though, and I wish them well. --Paddy Dignam 02:57, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Eastonwood Ferals

What do you want? An essay? If you don't know who they are or why they deserve historical status then you've only been playing a week or never left your fort.

  1. Yes - I nominated them... -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 20:23, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  2. Yes - Unlike most groups who have this honour conveyed upon them, these guys deserve it in a major way. One of the greatest groups in the history of Malton. --Papa Moloch 20:40, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  3. Yes - One the deadliest, most effective and most respected zombie groups out there. EF kept Easton' red and completely uninhabitable for breathers for about 2 years. They were active in the entire NW sector, and were an integral part of the Mall Tours and many other events and "happenings". EF are one of the most historical and accomplished UD groups. EVER. And they will be very sorely missed in UD. Rest in pieces, EF. --WanYao 20:41, 25 September 2008 (BST)
    I'd like to add that, as far as I'm concerned, EF mastered and perfected several tactics that are commonplace now -- e.g., using pinatas as a strategy rather than just a random tactic, and organised zombie-squatting (aka Salt the Land). For many months they also kept the only record, in their "almanac", dealing with levels of ruin/decay -- a resource used by everybody. The list could go on. EF are not "Historical," nor even just "pioneering": they are Legendary. --WanYao 20:56, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  4. Yes - You're kidding right? Few groups are as deserving, or have had as fearsome a reputation. Just do it, k? Thanks! -- Bisfan 20:51, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  5. Yes - Being one of the first major hordes I fought against as a survivor, these guys will always have a soft spot in my heart. May their memory unlive on forever. -- Cheese 20:58, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  6. TOTALLY YES -Such a great group and one of the older zombie groups. Their dedication to keeping Eastenwood totally ruined (most of the buildings there scored some insanely high ruins), involvement in both bashes and mall tours, their ability to get along with everyone, and their great projects like the 10K club have given the game much flavor it otherwise wouldn't have. If anyone deserves historical status its them. They will be very much missed. --Zoey Zarg 20:59, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  7. Yes - I am back on the wiki for this edit only. Yes, they were such a great group, its very sad they're gone.--KOOKY 21:16, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  8. Absolutely - This is terrible news, but at least they can be remembered. --Banana reads Scoundrell for all of Yesterday's News, Today! 21:20, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  9. Yes -- This is a well duh sort of thing. Pound for pound the most effective zombie horde in UD (and I include LUE and Shacknews on that count). -- Murray Jay Suskind 21:23, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  10. Yes -- many A time have they eaten my brains. may they be remembered for it.--'BPTmz 21:26, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  11. Yes - No doubt about it in my mind. On behalf of my former horde (who had the pleasure of working with them last year), I saLUEte the EF.--DJ Deadbeat 21:28, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  12. Yes - Without question one of the most [if not the most] effective horde in UD, heroes to the zombie cause and harbingers of death for the survivors. Well deserved, and the nomation says it all, if you don't think so then you should leave your fort more often. --TouchingVirus 21:44, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  13. Yes - They were as good as it gets.--Panthera 22:10, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  14. Yep - The most unanimous historical-group-vote evar? --Midianian|T|T:S|C:RCS| 22:12, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  15. Yes - I've rarely even gone near Eastonwood and word of their accomplishments has still reached my ears. They've earned a reputation as one of the most fearsome and effective zombie groups in the game. --Lejes 22:22, 25 September 2008 (BST)
  16. Yes - Fuck yes, one of the most legendary zombie groups ever.--Drawde Talk To Me! DORIS Red Rum Defend Ridleybonk! I know Nothing! 22:40, 25 September 2008 (BST)

  20. Aye - no doubt. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 02:14, 26 September 2008 (BST)
  21. Yes - I'd vote no just because Papa hasnt shown me any lovin recently, but that wouldnt do EF justice. --Gus ThomasSpartaZHU 02:44, 26 September 2008 (BST)

Drunken Dead

Founded in October 2005, the Drunken Dead were one of the best known zombie groups in northeast Malton. As with the FotFL, they primarily inhabited Pescodside, but were known to spread havoc in the surrounding suburbs. Known for their "drinking binges" (of death) the DD were the deadliest threat the suburb knew and proved a challenge to local survivors. It was only after the zombie group's number dwindled and the group itself faded from UD (as it was never formally disbanded) that survivors managed to regain control of Pescodside.

While my stance has always been pro-survivor, I would be remitant in my duties to the UD Wiki if I did not support showcasing the Drunken Dead and their important role in Pescodside's local history, if not that of northeast Malton.

  1. Yes - They were a strong zombie group that terrorized northeast Malton. They deserve to be remembered for their efforts. --Mobius 14:11, 20 August 2008 (BST)
  2. No - Never heard of them. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 14:17, 20 August 2008 (BST)
    Of course youve never heard of them, they disbanded more than a year before you joined the community. As for the group itself. I formed and led them for a while, but i was skating on the edge of a burnout at the time. Ive never sought historical status for them, and i dont particularly care now (Hence my not voting). I might try and get in touch with Edith, whom i left in charge when i left and tell her about this, but otherwise i dont really care. --The Grimch U! E! 14:39, 20 August 2008 (BST)
  3. Yes - I have fleeting memories of them when I first joined Urban Dead, strange because they were apparently inactive by then. --  AHLGTG 00:04, 21 August 2008 (BST)
  4. Fuck Yea - --Bullgod 06:49, 21 August 2008 (BST)
  5. No, because i find it hard to believe there were ever zombies in Pesky and because democracy shouldn't work.--xoxo 07:50, 21 August 2008 (BST)
    We did venture down into Pescoside to help out the Bela Lugosi Fan Club (A smaller, but no less cool group), but mostly we sat in the northern half of dulston knocking over the PD's and NT's. Our last act in Dulston before leaving was taking down the mall with the Mall Tour. --The Grimch U! E! 19:48, 21 August 2008 (BST)
  6. Yes - for one thing, excactly because it's so hard to believe now that zombies once terrorised the NE, their example and their inspiration ought to enshrined and immortalised. and, they did a pub crawl back in 2005. and... just take a look at the page... --WanYao 08:01, 21 August 2008 (BST)
