    I thought "every year from now on" was a bit too optimistic.

    ...Can't top the CNET prank.

    I think we decided not to do anything as we're all busy at the moment and don't really care to pull some prank that everyone knows is...a prank.
    Though I'm not sure, I don't feel like reading over much tonight so don't hold muh word on it.

    Yeah, I'm totally falling for it. I guess there won't be any shocking announcement that only the gullible will believe on the portal that day. Thanks for setting my mind at ease.

    considering all the shit, flaming, beging for cheats and general not listening... i think it should be skipped as most people on here will not "get it" and you just know that the poor mods will have even MORE to handle than they do right now.... so yes, i do think it should be skipped if only to save the mods loads of shit and spam to read trough!

    I think they should remove a major feature in the Summer and bring it back and admit it was a joke on April Fools [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's tradition, they should not skip it.

    It's going to be hard to be trixxy about it though. Everyone will be waiting for something on the 1st and it will be obvious. I remember with the cnet thing I was tricked, but I'm not sure how that was possible if it was on the 1st of april. did they do it on another day :S?

    On topic: I think they should do it. I still remember "OMGZ GBATEMPZ JOINED CNET" thing, it was really ummm.. creative [​IMG]. And I want to know what will they (the staff) come up with this time.
