    Yeah I know that it'll happen in like a year but I don't care! >:( You guys can post your ideas too. I just did this because I thought it would be funny.

    Anyways my idea is on april fools they'll have an announcement and say they're are making Smart-Alerts and basically it would be on the side bar thing. And the joke is that anything you do such as typing or clicking gives you an Smart-Alert. Now in the pop up for it you can disable it or you can just challenge yourself to avoid it lol. And if you wanted to mix this with the actual alerts though I think that'd be very annoying.

    What are some of your guy's ideas for the next april fools day joke?

    Doesn't it go against the joke if people have already discussed and agreed upon it prior? Like we'd just know it's fake and it'd just become an inconvenience in oppose to something remotely amusing.

    When was the last time some annoying feature was added and you KNEW (unless you forgot) that it was april fools and you thought it was real. Never. I mean if we all discuss ideas we will never know what idea they'll pick or if they'll pick one at all! :o

    And you keep it for one week or month, so that it can be a good April Fools.

    Or the tempStyle scheme is a doge meme. like everything is wrote in a "doge" style, like "wow much mario, such odyssey, so released"

    Well.. it wasn't exactly a feature, but when CNET took over GBAtemp, I first thought it had to be a joke, but they made it seem so real that as the days passed by, I started believing it more and more, still hoping it was just a joke but worrying that it was real, until I started believing that it was true. Man how relieved I was when it was revealed as a joke. It probably helped that it didn't happen on April 1st, it happened a few days before and kept going until a few days after. It felt like forever, but it probably wasn't more than 1-1.5 weeks all in all.
    It wouldn't be very effective if you could just disable it. It would have to be forced for a few days at least, until the April Fools joke is revealed (and then maybe it could be left as an optional feature for a while :P)
    Fuck no. I'd leave GBAtemp :(
    I think everyone smelled that a mile away, at least I did :P

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Everyones post counts were switched so EoF posts would be the only reflection toward total messages and reset "likes" count to zero.
    Change everyones avatar one of four dead memes.
    Anyone who is a "Member" would have their title changed to "Moderator" with no authority.
    Add "butt" to the end of every name.
    Change Tempy to a Lenny face.
    Make every user follow every user.
    Font color would be white, forcing you to highlight everything.
    Disable signatures.
    EoF posts show up in "All content" section.
    Change the banner from "GBATEMP" to "3DSHAT", "GBATRUMP", or "GBC4LYFE".
    Undo every ban for a day, but every time the user tried to post, a message would say, "Awaiting Moderator approval."

    My idea for April Fools: Every member is temporarily turned into an Admin

    like as appearence? because if not even if you had some backup that'd be madness.

    No, I mean that they legitimately have Admin permissions. This forum needs to be absolute chaos on April 1st, 2018.
