One thing that I actually enjoy in internet forums is the glitches. Like attachments button not working, invisible threads with -1 replies...

Glitches that enhance the forum experience are preferred over those that hinder it, for obvious reasons.

Ideally the forum admins should not care and take their time to solve any glitches, if ever.

Any suggestions?

this should be good :P
1) Look at a newly-formed thread at the forum.
2) Ask yourself "Wait, is someone creating a duplicate thread?"
3) Look at thread creator's avatar.
4) Suddenly, it all makes sense.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I've heard of no. 3, but not of the remaining ones.

Well, there's always this train wreck to look back at with nostalgia. And that random string which I sadly forgot what it was.

Back in the day there was a forum I used to visit that turned out to allow some HTML injection. That was pretty fun. You could change the font size/colour in the whole website.

That's pretty cool, even better if it's intentional so there's at least some security that protects against banning people or turning off the server but everything else works. Changing other people's username would likely cause all sorts of interesting chaos.

This one did too. That was an interesting day. Turned out that while forum posts were protected against HTML injection, thread titles were not. Some enterprising GOGlodyte then took it upon himself to make absolutely sure GOG fixed the problem before someone could abuse it for nefarious ends. So he used it to make sure that anyone visiting the GOG forum was instantly redirected to a brony site.

For once, GOG were pretty quick to fix a forum bug.
