Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.

Gabe and Tycho have decided to make this forum publically accessible. This is more a place for archival than chat, so keep it on topic. If you have something fun to post, like some Gabeart, or an old PA related thing that has been forgotten, go right ahead.

Enjoy.

    it's a place to library of all things related to penny-arcade.

    fuck your forums, fuck your administrator and fuck dynagrip for getting away with the long troll.

    Hopefully with public access there'll be more people helping out with hosting and such.

    The Long Answer (to the question: "What is this?")

    This is a forum that was created by me about the time this incarnation of the forums (phpBB2,Feb 2003) replaced the previous 2001-2002 incarnation the forums.

    In 2001-2002, Penny-Arcade ran almost completely by the support of donations, and in return for those donations they gave special perks under a program they called ClubPA.

    ClubPA had (and still has) a hidden forum of their own, and also received emailed "gifts" from Gabe and Tycho in return for their donations. After ClubPA was replaced by ad-revenue, I got the OK from Gabe and Tycho to assemble the various ClubPA gifts into a single forum accessible to all ClubPA members. Now, 4 years later, they have opened that forum to the general public as well.

    Although it hasn't been tended to in quite some time this forum also became a repository of some additional OLD PENNY-ARCADE STUFF, not specific to ClubPA.

    With some work by people who really care about preserving penny-arcade history, I think it could be a great single point of reference for all sorts of penny-arcade stuff that just isn't readily accessible or visible on the penny-arcade mainsite.

    This is so interesting. I didn't get into PA until about 2003 (apparently after the Ad-Revenue took over). I never even have heard about Club PA. I never saw it mentioned in any of the other forums.

    This is like finally getting access to the secret clubhouse on the playground where all the cool kids hang out.

    I am in the business of saving lives.

    This is pretty cool. Clicking on the 'details' link on the forum index sends you to the 'something has gone terribly wrong' page though.

    I have many Penny Arcade related things in my head and on my hard drive. Sometimes I get confused about which is which. Maybe I could be of some assistance?

    I'm still looking for the PA Wallpaper they gave out for the first or second month of donations. I really want it again!

    this is really cool. Back when ClubPA was around I simply didn't have the funds but always loved the idea. These days that isn't the case but all this stuff was still locked down! Pretty excited to check it out :)

    I don't remember it being animated... but it looks about right (at least from how I remember it). Thanks!

    This may not be the one you're looking for, as I don't think it was a donation one, but it might fit the bill.

    Edit: I think I'll host a zip of it instead of the 4 MB file.

    I'll keep that hosted for a while, if someone wants to host it elsewhere, that'd be great.
