The other forum was called FPC, which stands for Fire Pro Covfefe

:P

I was on the Fire pro boards after the na release as a newb but hung out so much I ended up getting access to the green door.

Nothing went down there from what I remember....some porn and shit talk was all from what I can recall.

Regardless, I had a lot of fun times at the fpc.

I was on fireprozomg for a bit but it wasn't the same.

This place is nice.

Feels like a reunion of smarks.

I'll just come in here and point out that the FPC lives at @fireproclub on Twitter and at the Fire Pro Club page on Facebook. I run both, and I'm backed by the founder of the FPC James Freeman.

Technically there is a new FPC board at http://www.fpc-zomg.com. But I have nothing to do with the site or the board. This is a project by Hoss and LordVermin of ZOMG.

My idea was to have a Fire Pro wiki with info, and have the Arena being the official, universal board of the community, even talked about it with Drive. The FPC would have been a Wiki, a Twitter and a Facebook, with the independent Arena as a board. But this is Hoss' baby, and he wanted a board. I'm not about to tell James Freeman how he should run the FPC, I'm happy running the FB and the Twitter, and I'm happy with what we're doing with them.

Ok, why did they create new forums? Not that they're not within their right to do so, but starting a new forum and calling it "the official forum of the FPC" when this one has housed the community for how many years now?

Because he wanted one.

And like I said, I'm not about to tell him how he should run the FPC, he started this in 1993. But yeah, this is the main board of the community and I don't see that changing. I've grown FPC into the main community presence on Twitter/FB, at least the one with the most/better content, and I'll focus on creators and their work because I think that's the draw of the series, awesome that Spike figured it out too.

It's cool that the community has no warring factions going into World.

I remember the old site existing, but never joined. Indeed there seems to be a rich history behind it.
It's not enough to look like an edit to be an edit. You have to act like them too.

I do want to thank Phil for running the @fireproclub twitter (and facebook). I'm not always active and getting content re-tweeted or interacting with the community via the @fpwarena twitter, and it's nice that there is an 'alternative' that can keep that ball rolling.

I can't stand facebook so I've never touched much over there, so running an active arm of the community via that outlet is great.

The only difference is you need to access it through archive.orgs "way back machine" which is a rather well known webtrawler (website archiver) that started in the 90's. For that forum it goes back until 2006 with 2008 being the most activity listed for it. Though showing updates into 2016, the last dates where the forums still worked and load are early 2015.

This was the old fire pro club addy

Code: Select all

http://www.fireproclub.com/

So you go to archive.org and once there on the top of the page you will see a "wayback machine" listing where you input the url you want and hit enter.


Having heard that the boards were unrecoverable, I never even tried that until I read your post. Amazing that there is still some stuff archived. I went back and found my old Heroes of History topic and other useful things. Many thanks for telling us that news.



Sorry for the near 2 month later reply ( normal life got very busy around that time in May) but glad to have helped. I used to download a ton of stuff from the site when it was running and after it died through some other programs - (like waybackmachinedownloader), I was able to download some of the board but most of all the files it hosted (under the user name) which still exist on archive

I remembered Fire Pro Club as well. Definitely was the biggest source for all things Fire Pro before Arena came along.

I was initial turned off from joining due to word of mouth of how the community is exclusive and notorious for not being friendly to new users. I think I may have confused it with the No Mercy Zetaboards which does have some history of being unwilling to help new users how to create mods.

Still, without that site this site wouldn't exist. Especially seeing how members like Orochi Geese, Zealot and Tiger Sword originated from Fire Pro Club.

Old FPC got pretty toxic so you heard right. I've been around the fire pro community since '97 and ended up ragequitting the FPC myself about 10 years ago for some idiotic feud. When you consider that the last fire pro game came out 12 years ago, a lot of us were still in high school, college or just starting out on our own. By now most of the "club" is older, has thicker skin and get our fill of childish BS from work or from literally putting up with BS from their children. :lol:

Well with that in mind, glad I didn't join back then as I was high schooler starting college at that time. And considering my old DeviantArt profile which haven't evolved from my high school days, I could of made the community even worse with the ego I have. :upsidedownlol:

I fondly remember FPC. I joined in anticipation of R's NA release. My user name was Bartlett and I helped convert ps2 saves to be played in old fat PS3's.
I still have my old fat system hooked up. It was the best way to play Returns since you could swap edit packs/save files on the fly.
I don't recall seeing newbs getting flamed there, but it's the Internet, so I wouldn't be surprised.

Anyway, that site was the first dedicated forums I ever found to discuss fire pro. It was such a great thing for me for awhile. I am so thankful this place has become our new home. I love the community for this game and seeing all the amazing things done in World already.
