I thought I’d take a moment to explain the state of things here at InsideQC. You probably came here looking for Inside3D. InsideQC, for all intents and purposes, is Inside3D. We have decided to change the name. Atomic Gamer, the company responsible for hosting Inside3D, recently announced it is shutting down at the end of this month. They currently own the inside3d.com domain name. We may gain access to that domain name after all is said and done, but for the time being we’re here at insideqc.com.
The name InsideQC goes back to the very founding of the site. Back in the old days, Inside.QC was created on Frag.com as a tutorial site and after a short time, it was consumed by the “borg of the Quake community, PlanetQuake” and moved to planetquake.com/iqc. On August 4, 1997 Inside.QC re-branded itself Inside3D to preempt the release of Quake II, the admins at the time forecasting the swift demise of the QuakeC language. Later, Inside3D moved to Telefragged and obtained the shiny new inside3d.com domain name. Telefragged then eventually morphed into Atomic Gamer.
Inside3D lived happily on Atomic Gamer for many years and we owe the team of people behind that site a great deal. Eventually, however, Inside3D fell into disrepair. The main site was defaced. The forums were spammed and locked down. Key people from the site had moved on with their lives and the site started to wither.
I say we try to reverse that! So with that, here is the brand new version of Inside QC. For now the only thing of note is the forums. If you want to talk to the admins of this site, hop on over to #qc on irc.anynet.org. If you need approval for a new account on the forums, email scar3crow or try to find me on irc. Scar3crow’s email address is what you’d expect at gmail.com.
