Well. I've pretty much lost hope. They're probably going to get rid of the BBS.

Their real joke is probably going to be... hmm.

They're probably going to act like they were hacked by ze Conficker virus. That would be funny.

Hey guys.. You know it's April 1st right. Let that fact settle into your mind for a second. I imagine the site will keep not working at certain times all day just to scare us.

Meh, as Malachy pointed out and as I said on the first page, the bbs is being removed soon, not today, not tomorrow as far as I know, just indeterminately soon.

okay, just what the fuck in the name of Odin's fucking balls is going on here?

first it starts running slow, then it stops working, now we're back online and none of that horrendous lag had anything to do with the forums being taken down?

is the lag some kind of incredablly unfunny April Fools day joke? is it caused by that virus we've all heard about?

why would you annouce the end of the forums so close to April Fools day? why was newgrounds lagging? why is Adult Swim showing The Room?

OH GOD WHATS HAPPENING?

WHATS HAPPENING TO MY WORLD?

you know whats sad?

if this isn't Tom's April Fools Day joke, he's gonna phone it in with a shitty one.

even if it isn't shitty it'll be overlapped by the sadness of this occurunce.

HURR DURR GUYS N E one else see NG was down fer a bit!?!

Honestly, it seems like everyone thinks Newgrounds is going away.

Admins are probably adding something new (or taking something away). All we know is, something interesting is happening, and we're bound to see a news post from someone in a little while.


Do what now...?

I hope that when the chat is up, they will have different rooms withing the chats... Similar to the BBS, only the rooms would be flushed after a day or two....

Yup, I lost connection to NG just before midnight NY Time. Was not connecting for over 40 minutes. Then was up and down a bit - and now it seems to be up - for now.

Was it just a coincidence that this happened exactly at the start of 4/1/09?

I think the best part about all of this is the conspiracy theories that the mods are messing with us - and this is all a precursor to the BBS's being shut down.

Yeah, right. I'll believe it when I see it. It may go down today as a sick joke, but I doubt the Fulp would shut down the BBS and risk losing the following he has now. Makes no sense. Why build up a site just to hurt those you attract to it?

But I guess time will tell...
