GameFAQs Archive

Hello, and welcome to the GameFAQs Archive. This site was inspired by ColdFusion's now defunct 'Nostalgia Project', and was originally created by Chris "Roaddhogg" Mawson in March 2003. The GFA was established with the intention of being a comprehensive repository of interesting topics, landmarks, user pages and events from the history of the GameFAQs message boards, primarily to give users an insight into how they have evolved since their inception in 1999. Special thanks go to Insder, Joycey, yarjar, Luigi and Tails, and Raijin for their administrative support and assistance in the past.

To navigate the site, click a link and the 'Back' button to return to this index. The GFA is best viewed with a standards-compliant web browser; some files may not display correctly in Internet Explorer. If you'd like to contribute any interesting, noteworthy or humourous GameFAQs events in the form of HTML sources or images, please log into your GFA account (click 'Register' to create a new one), and use the 'Contribute' link in your user navigational bar. If you spot any errors, typos or glitches whilst browsing the Archive, please let me know via the 'Feedback' page once you have logged into your account; along with any other suggestions, comments or queries that you may have.

Finally, it should be noted that this archive contains content that may be considered highly offensive by some, and the GFA accepts no liability for any repercussions occurred as a result of you viewing these pages. Any abuse of the submission or feedback systems will result in the blocking of your IP address from viewing this site; which is irreversible.

N.B. The GFA and associated projects have been on hiatus since August 2007. Details on the future of the site to be announced in the new year.

Short Break: Just a heads-up that I'm taking a few days off from GFA-related "work" this week, having updated the site every day in the past month. I'm also going to be on vacation between the 28th and 31st; I aim to fully zero the queues before I leave. (8/21)

GameFAQs Spinoffs Archive: It was inevitable; the GFA has its own first official spinoff - the GameFAQs Spinoffs Archive. This project will primarily be administrated by miikrr, with myself helping to process the queue but having little to do with adding new files. If you have any files from GameFAQs' numerous spinoffs you'd like to submit, please do so on the Spinoffs Archive in the same manner you do here: the user databases are merged, so there is no need to register an additional account. (8/15)

Extended Downtime: My apologies for the twenty-four hour downtime yesterday; it annoyed me as much as anyone else. Bihira, my webhost, has offered the following explanation:

There was a twenty four hour downtime between 2:00 A.M. (GMT) to 2:00 A.M. (GMT) on August 11, 2007 and August 12, 2007.

During this time ModernBill automatically sent a command to cPanel to terminate a web hosting package for non-payment. However, cPanel didnít properly remove all subdomains which created a problem in the apache configuration file. Thus apache was not able to restart after the removal of the web hosting package. To fix this issue we repaired the apache configuration file and restarted apache. We apologize for any downtime.

This outage was paired with another problem. We are working in a temporary office when a theft occurred. However, only a few of our equipment was stolen but all the computers were locked up and couldnít be stolen. This theft hampered our ability to efficiently run our office for the day and we were not able to fix apache configuration file error until now. For anyone worried about their information being stolen, we take great strides in protecting our memberís information. All membersí information that is stored on any computer (which isnít a lot to begin with) is securely encrypted, locked, and hidden and checked on a random regular basis for security measures.

If any member has any other questions, please feel free to respond. Again, we apologize for this downtime and are taking strides to ensure it will not happen again.
(8/12)

Feedback Required: With another free day coming up tomorrow, I'll be looking to add additional user features and pages to the site. If you have any ideas, please send them in via the feedback form for consideration. Thanks! (8/9)
