i don't remember too much but
- there was cryingrabbit drama, multiple alts were created with names like "am egg" or "am chicken". it was originally just a silly thing by one forumer but it got out of hand quickly. the cryingrabbit accounts all got permabans and the forumers behind the account got their mains banned for 1 month or so, but some glitches happened and certain forumers were mistakenly banned for longer. some even left for a while because of it
- the chattydress/venus situation. someone had a dream about the forums being hacked by a forumer named venus. a day later, a chattydress alt was created and it just seemed to be a troll alt at first, but after a few days, someone claimed that chattydress was venus. chattydress took on the venus disguise, scaring several people but not fooling too many. later, a forumer stepped forward that she was chattydress and apologized for her actions.
- THE GREAT HURRICANE DRAMA. this is what i consider one of the "killers" of the forums; what i believe made us all so tense and cautious. so hurricane "died" in a car crash, and her sister took over her account for her. this shook the forums. it was all the same grieving for around 2 months until someone questioned if maelstrom, hurricane's sister, was hurricane posing as maelstrom. maelstrom denied it, but later made a thread saying that hurricane was alive, and that they were "in therapy" and "in wisconsin" and that "her parents told her to lie". some forgave her, some didn't, a few were even skeptics about maelstrom actually being hurricane's sister. a forumer named hidden treeline joined all of the sudden. she was normal at first but then something happened on the ggad discord server. hidden treeline then revealed herself to be hurricane and maelstrom, and that hurricane was only posing as maelstrom the entire time.
- THE GREAT SUMMER DRAMA. basically, summer was doing what is technically ILLEGAL on the ggad discord server. some of the stuff is just flat-out too non-child-friendly to be stated on the forums, but summer got in major drama and later left/was banned.
- THE GREAT LEAVING. a combo of the hurricane and summer dramas made the forums insanely toxic. half the forums' population was completely wiped out by the drama, and several forumers left, including thunderstorm and (for a while, but they came back) future, necro, and more.
i'm a drama expert on stuff that happened after july 2016 basically-
