Srb2 iceberg

I'll explain what I know.
Color camouflage - Black was banned in Match during 2.0 to prevent camouflage.
Removed Baby Sonic - Versions before v2.2 had a baby Sonic on the loading screen.
Sonic XTreme Placeholders - In extremely early versions of SRB2, sprites from Sonic XTreme were used as placeholders for actual sprites.
SMSFun.exe - When SMS had his final version for Final Demo, he also had an EXE mod that went alongside it made by a friend of Golden Shine. HOWEVER, this .EXE mod had the same netgame ID as vanilla... allowing for major Master Server issues. This then caused the SMS mod to be banned from the Master Server in an attempt to fix the issues.
Not My Community Anymore - Often said by Mystic towards the end of his run.
I'm putting my foot down - Phrase Rob used when enforcing rules of the Old Guard.
Fang teased in the Big April Fools post - Well, the post DID hint at unlockable characters....
Demo 4 Anime Special Stages - Several special stages in Demo 4 outright used music from a specific anime.
Original 3D Brak Eggman Fight - There's this one picture showing a 3D Brak in an arena, likely as a test for the model that the sprites were pre-rendered from.
The CSCS - A real and private Discord server.
What does F stand for? - Referring to FSonic. Whilst it has later been said to just be whatever the person wants... it was originally "Fucking".
Catness.png predicted the future - A drawing by SSNSonic which had Mystic reading a newspaper with a headline of "Mystic Banned" in the background. Yeeeaaaa.
Knux smiley life icon - Pre-final demo versions of SRB2 had a smiley placeholder life icon for Knuckles.
2 hour slowmode - The old guard would often use this whenever someone posted memes in #srb2 on the Discord server.
Christmas SRB2 Dos Exclusivity - SRB2 Christmas refuses to run in DOSBox and must be run in a VM running a version of DOS.
Gaping Mouth Sonic - Some art of Sonic by SSNTails just has him in that stock shock pose with his bottom jaw hitting the floor.
The Port Cult - Likely referring to how once 2.2 released, even with the rules against it, "portlegs" began to pop up en masse.
SAGE 2k Build lost to time - The builds of GFZ shown in the SRB2 SAGE 2000 trailer have been lost to time. That's all.
SSNTails Archives - SSNTails' website until recently had a massive archive of SRB2-related stuff.
Earless Cake - For one of Sonniku's birthdays, SSNTails, since he was nearby, gave him a birthday cake modeled after Earless. Might have also been the other way around.
Mystic Realm v6 - At the time, it was uncertain if this would ever release. It did. And now MRCE exists.
SMSReborn caused the Dev Revolution - ... oh boy. Here we go.
So, Mystic hated SMS. Really hated SMS. So, when SMSReborn released... he may have had a complete meltdown on the official Discord server, and left for a bit. This caused people to begin fully doubting the Old Guard. Then, later, with Mystic back, someone by the name of Purps was discovered to be a Sapheros alt (Sapheros, a well-known coder during the 2.1 era, is also a pedophile). This caused a ruckus on the official server, which is when the topic of Sapheros' original discovery of being a pedophile came up. Mystic accused someone who asked about the identity of the whistleblower back during the original discovery (because them and Sapheros were in a private server together, and they were curious) of also being a pedophile. Obviously, this is irrational reasoning, and EVERYONE got pissed off. Rob stood by this irrational accusation, and Prime v2 simply locked the channel until it calmed down. Either Prime or MrMystery later banned Mystic with the reason "We'll talk about this later". THEN, after Prime handed OS ownership over to someone else, they tried to burn down the OS by switching over to the CS... yea, then he got yeeted. That's when the current dev team emerged. He was later banned from the MB.

Wasn't he also because he did some illegal thing that had the police getting reported as well?
... what?

Mystic was a bad game designer and jaded community leader, NOT a criminal.

All that Mystic drama happening after SMSReborn, when did that happen?

All that Mystic drama happening after SMSReborn, when did that happen?
IIRC, during April 2020-June 2020. I know that by June 20th, all 3 of the main old guard mods were gone, due to Sev's news post, but I also recall a major time gap between the banning of Mystic alongside Rob stepping down and getting banned, and Prime's ban.

UPDATE: I know for a fact that Eggpack reverted to v2 the same day Purps was discovered to be Sapheros and the same day that it all started to get into action. So, May 17th, 2020 (the day Mystic made false accusations) through June 20th, 2020 (the day Sev announced the staffing changes).

Oh, What a Flopnik!
"Knuckles can't jump in Europe"?

What's that supposed to mean?
It has to do with European keyboards and the locale involved. Over there in many countries, the convention is that the decimal separator is a comma instead, as opposed to a period (or full stop). When trying to read his jump height factor in version 2.1.0, most computers originating on the continent would misinterpret it, so they goof and think "0.85" actually just means "0" with extra tacked-on values that they don't bother reading and skip. Knuckles became able to specifically jump again there thanks to a day-one fix for this bug coming later with 2.1.1, if memory serves.

Wait, so it means that the game's coding worked differently on an European computer? How could other game manage to go around this issue?

I actually contributed to that extended iceberg a few months back! It was one hell of a experience gathering the most obscurest info regarding to a Sonic fangame, especially when lots of this info is so obscure you literally have to ask what it actually is.
"Knuckles can't jump in Europe"?

What's that supposed to mean?
Exactly what it says on the tin: thanks to a programming goof Knuckles literally could not jump.
please tell me what eggbooks.png is.
It's a ancient image of SRB2 Eggman crouching and baring his ass to some Sonic OC saying "OOPS! I RIPPED MY PANTS!".
You can't make this shit up.
