Rock Raiders United Incorporated is a private company, founded, funded and run by Mayor McCheese Cyrem. It was created on the 31st of July in 2008, and was run by Cyrem's father, gmjab. gmjab, being only a poor man, was able to find some free office space in the city of Brisbane, and used that to expand on his finding of the LEGO creation, LEGO Rock Raiders. gmjab died a little over a year later, but his son, Cyrem, created a new building from scratch with the profit his father had made him. Almost 3 years of progress later, the business has expand to millions of floors, becoming it's own entirely new state in Australia (called "Mexicongo"). The business has 1220 recorded employees, almost 65,000 posts produced and has successfully blocked more than 10,000 attacks. RRU's main source of income is from producing and selling forum posts.

The building spans over 32,000,000 floors, and every floor contains at least one toilet. All toilets are in-sync, so if one breaks, they all break. Watercoolers are next to every single toilet block. Important floors are documented below; undocumented floors have either been abandoned or remain undiscovered caverns, containing high traces of ore, crystal and Brickonium. Several members have bought out entire floors, but all members sleep in private rooms in the barracks. 1 floor is square in shape approximate to more than the size of 20 A380 wings tip to tip. Every floor has a pants collection bin which automatically empties into the pants chute. All members are required to submit their pants to this bin upon the entering of a level. Staff are exempt.

Level -1.340780793×10¹⁵⁴ - Addictgamer's secret lab. It's the basement of RRU. The elevator can't go any lower due to it being at the lowest end of the 512 bit integer, and 512 bits is the largest integer the elevator supports. This level cannot be accessed under normal conditions. You must emag the elevator to unlock 512 bit mode. Some say the reason people (spammers, trolls, bots, etc) disappear from the prison is because addict kidnaps them at night, takes them down to his secret lab, and performs illegal experiments on them. They say he used some of these experiments to create force fields that keep spambots out of the building.

Anonymouse, when around, always uses up the paper towels, and doesn't replace them.

 

Now guys, I need your help. We have a lot more to write about, so let detail exactly what I need from you:

Events
RRU has a pretty BLAM!tastic history, and I'm currently writing up a whole series of events that cover LZ leaving, the Brony War, the site being shut down multiple times, and much, much more. That said, I need specific dates, information and more events. If you have anything you'd like to add to the timeline, please comment.

Random Facts
The Anonymous fact is a random fact. The toilets are a random fact. If you know anything about the building or members or ANYTHING that should be considered a fact, please write it down. The more, the better.

I would of claimed the 12th floor (as I usually have that number at the end of my username if needed), but I don't see a reason to have a floor (not that there needs to be, of course. :P)

Half random fact just made up: I made the first jam made with LEGO on March 26th.
-I did not get infected by ponies from Kata or anyone/anything on RRU.

Level 404, my Time Rift room. It contains a very unstable time crystal that sends me into a random point into the future. The crystal is linked to me, and became so shortly after the passing of gmjab, however it's effect kicked in after the shifting of the 'verse. (The 'Verse Shift is the transition into the new forum)

This perfectly explains why I leave without ever telling a single person. Or bot.
Then return on a random day where not much has changed on my end. Just an adventure.

EDIT: Also, 9002. Outside.

Level 67,68 - Closed off, unexplained, with a blacked out broom closet that's always locked near the stairs on floor 68. Cyrem and a few other members (mostly moderators and a few others can sometimes be seen entering and exiting this area. Sometimes the sound of explosions, heavy artillery and atmospheric electronic music can be heard inside.
Level 70 - Leased by Incom Technologies for future collaborative projects.
Level 71 - The mandatory Noodle Location/Forbidden Area/"That Place" that is sometimes mentioned but never actually seen.
Level 72 - The Hiatus room, where I was for a year after I originally joined. No one besides me knows what goes on in there.
Levels above 3,000 - pressurized due to high-altitude atmospheric conditions.
Level 4,998 - Kitchen for mandatory 5-star steakhouse.
Level 4,999 - Mandatory high-altitude 5-star steakhouse. Probably a Morton's or a Ruth Chris.
Level 5,000 - Observation deck, has elevator for visitors running from level 0 with no stops in-between. Serves no purpose except to give visitors a scenic view of the surrounding city.
Level 5,001 to 9,000 - Single supported elevator shaft.

Much appreciated. I'm glad Chuck Norris is in on this, so I'll add a tribute room for him ;P

12th floor can be yours, and I'll move one level of Dreadzone to the top levels as if it was the end campaigns or something. Just simply give me a description of what the floor is (house, apartment, or simply a "floor" because you don't wish to disclose the secret operations inside your floor, such as I). Thanks for the facts, will be added to the list..

level 9 of rru inc. stopped the dev of orr-gml for a while and started on a puzzlegame written in C# and javascript.

Level 9 will include a "Stopped" notice. Thanks.

9002 and 404 will be added with those descriptions. Thank you.

Unsure about the elevator shaft at this point, because I'm thinking of taking a whole chuck (7000-7999, and yes, my rent on these levels is quite expensive, more about renting later). With your permission, I'd like to make Level 72 a room where all members who go offline for a long time disappear too, and they never disclose the information about what happens in there. Most members who leave get lost in that place (you know, people who sign up either for downloads or just for the lols and never return).

As for the others, will be added. Thank you.

I guess it's just another one of those "unfixable" forum bugs, like the "Mark Topics Unread" bug which got fixed when I made a compliment ;P

I was kinda referencing my one-year hiatus with the "hiatus room", but that's fine if you want to make it a bit more general.

As for the huge elevator shaft, that's a space elevator. I guess we could say that the distance between floor 9,000 and 9,001 is several miles, though, thus requiring a massive elevator shaft.

Oh, another thing: Level 1,337 - The 1337 Club, a Cyber Cafe for RRU members only, with free access to every single competitive FPS, Bullet Hell, RTS, Racing and TBS game ever made, as well as Garry's Mod.

The section is however, only rarely visited by others than the 'usual' inhabitants of the floor, so it may appear a little dusty. :P

Level 9005-9008 Power Station power by a pair of Micro Reactors from the City of Radio.

Levels -3200000 - -3000 are not actually levels because level -2999 (-5997 meters down) pierces the lower mantle of the planet. Rather they are a set of structures that fill the earth arranged as a folded building such that the elevator goes up and down to get to the "bottom" floor, which is ~-5400 meters down.

All levels near the core have large reactors to heat the outer core and keep it molten so it can give us a magnetic field and allow us to have an atmosphere to allow us to breathe (at least the one that need breath to live at least).

Levels 8998-9001 then. (Yes, Cy, must work next to some radiators for the MR units.)
They are based on the pits of nukes with reflectors and can be found in about 500 backyards in The City of Radio. The piles are also self regulating (by steam pushing away the reflectors) water jacketed BWRs, so they may not even get hot enough to cause thermal burns at that height. Besides, at 36000 meters above sea level, there is no real way to power the lights other than nuclear power. They are not much larger than hot tubs.

Levels 10000-100000 Where the elevator goes to when 9001 is pressed and the current level is less than or equal to 9001.
