Default Whats with the deleted accounts?

Just today I have seen a few accounts (4 to be exact) that were active in the last couple of days (as in posting etc) that are now deleted accounts (as in their username is no longer a link).

Whats happened/going on?

I suspect your answer lies in either of these two links.

This may be a related issue, something I've noticed in the past few days. Every now and then when a thread loads, a poster's name will have been replaced with a name that isn't a profile link, and has no apparent tie to their profile ( numerous profiles coming up with the same 'new name' at different times). I'm using IE 8 on Vista, so it could be Windows falling apart on me

Examples of these weird new names:
Bum-hollioo! Are you threatening me!
Kharne's crotch
Harry Potter
Suicidal penguin
No-brain-bob
Bobby boomstick
Hovering Hobbit
Captain Pugwash

Explanation time!

I noticed this a while ago when it first started and asked FT about it directly.

Theres a 1% chance a post will say either "Twilight Fan", "Chuck Norris" or the one you saw. This can happen at any time, or until I say it does :shifty:
Of course, I then asked why...

I hope he doesn't get any ideas from this. :shifty: (Knowing him he just might).
I couldn't let that go without something happening :shifty:
There's a topic in the enclave about this: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php/topic,91000.html

Long story short, FT does have a sense of humour.

Although it apparently ran away on FT for a while. Somehow whatever he coded managed to gain sentience and is now slowly working towards total control of our bodies.

<_<

>_>

Nah, not really, but there were a couple bugs.

Sorry enderwiggin, but I couldn't see those links, so didn't realise they would answer my question

Also thanks for the explanation crazyguy832, it's good to know this forum has that kind of positive atmosphere floating around

I will lock this one. Nothing has been deleted, but I think one of our beloved admins is causing shenanigans to take place. :shifty:
