Trolling Ginge

On the 19th october a plan was hatched and caused to some the best night of friday lols we have ever witnessed. Ginge or TheGingerKid is a member of gamegrin forums but has started for his final year of uni his own review team. The company was called byte control and after a quick look i noticed he hadn't registered the .co.uk domain. A week of holding on to the domain thinking of what to do with it.

At 7pm on the 19th the plan started with a simple re-direct to ign and a small message to ginger to about the whole thing. It blew up quickly. The domain is went from ign to http://nooooooooooooooo.com/ to dont copy that floppy video
. After much loling we added a admin@ account and we got our first e-mail from ginger about the whole situation.

Yo,

Just interested in what this site will become!

Cheers.

James.

After a few minutes we grabbed a free word press site a logo and a bit of phreaking later he was convinced that ign had setup a new brand under the name of bytecontrol and had took his idea.

After a quick email to tell him to **** off as we own the copywrite to bytecontrol. we got this

Hi guys,

Sorry to seem a little bitter over on your new site, you can delete the comments if you feel it appropriate.

You can understand that I would be feeling this way as I was mocking up designs for a logo, content etc. I have a Facebook page created, a Twitter page, sub-Reddit, the lot. I will take down/change what I can for now.

This may sound slightly absurd but I would love to be part of Byte Control, as a writer, reviewer etc. Seems like fate that this has come about! Look forward to hearing from you soon.

James.

Finally after four hours we had to let the fish go he had been on the hook long enough.

We got it to look like dawson himself super hacker had hacked into our really secure website and gave the passwords to ginger. Ginger then set about to distory our website which had been made by changing the background colour and some of the text. We still loved him so tried to drop hints on what was going on asking him to look at alt tags on images which told him it was us. It wasnt until a phone call that kris took that helped him fit the final piece of the puzzle into place and the jig was up.

Massive thanks to everyone who took part in the trolling.

Kris, Sarah, Wedgeh, Dawson and Plat with out you it wouldnt of been fun. Oh and ginger for been a potato!

If you care the domain is now being forwarded to gingers website so he can use it. Everything else will be removed but what a epic friday night!

Re: Trolling Ginge

You guys, f*cking SUCK.

Honestly this was a night I won't forget for a very long time. It was so well planned and designed but I don't know how I let you guys fool me for so long.

The copyright claim was the worst part.
