I thought that was BY AN EXTREME LEAD the all-time BEST website April Fool's joke EVER! I can say so because I am an expert on fools (see: name)

You guys committed to it so much, which was what really did it. If you only changes the theme and some images, and let people post and all that, it wouldn't have been nearly as great. Also locking out nearly all your content for almost a day was really ballsy and risky, but I think it led to a greater belief factor for the noobs who fell for the trick. The flashes and movies submitted were great and the BBS posts were also hilarious.

Good job NG fools

interesting. how long has april fool's day been going on and people still don't know? to all those who wasted their time complaining: who are you people? don't you own a calendar?
tom, you should take all those comments, count the number of users, and then get back to us on the percentage of people on this site with NO SENSE OF HUMOR!

Wow, people actually fell for that, I had no idea anyone could be so stupid.

I thought the whole thing was hillarious and people should have enjoyed it while it lasted. Best April Fools ever guys.

I wish I could have lurked around a bit more while it was up. All I saw was insanely enjoyable, nonetheless.

Nice leval icons like the person below me said. I thought it wasa great idea untill I logged on yesterday and saw even 8 bit waterslide was blocked from my view. Yesterday things were so bad I actually thought that the site was down and I would come back in an hour. Saddly I was greated with the same missing functionality. I mean it was all fine in good untill any movie you watch or post made gets changed or morphed into a chiniese social form. Im sry you had to negotiate for a year but I mean think about it if you nigotate for a year and there going to block everything you got to reprioratize.
