Back from the dead (sort of) April 20, 2018

Don't get too excited, PingGnome will not be making an appearance on any time soon. It is only the site that has been resurrected from an old backup (from around September 2011), making PingGnome a zombie gnome! Why the trip down memory lane you ask? No reason.. no reason whatsoever.

Commonly seen users April 6, 2010

Added a new page: Commonly seen users. Not really very useful, but perhaps someone will find a use for it.

Domain name! February 14, 2010

I finally decided to purchase a domain name (! And after years of using It was about time, wouldn't you say?

Over the past 4 days the site has been offline bcause of MySQL, Apache, and PHP trouble. Somehow they all got slightly corrupted and were refusing to work. But alas, it has been fixed and PingGnome is ready for action!

New trivia channels page November 9, 2009

Old clans remembered July 11, 2009

I've added a oldest existing clans page which shows the alive clan counts broken down by year. Clicking the year will show the clans for that year. This feature was actually here since the site started, but I removed the only page that linked to it... *doh*. It's back now though :)

New comment feature July 10, 2009

A user comments section has been added to the site, as well as on all user, channel, and hosting record pages!

W3XP User ID canceled April 1, 2009

Warcraft3: TFT games are no longer collected due to the low demand for it, and the fact that I can't find another working WAR3 key. It is highly unlikely that it will return since my server is not cut out for handling 30 additional gigs of game data.
