Lots of SLOW people visit Newgrounds, eh? I thought the joke was excellent, even if it did mostly use stereotypes that were several decades out of date (i.e. you won't find too many Chinese people or even government officials these days who have kind things to say about Mao).
It was quite fun to watch the joke unfold throughout the day, as progressively more and more words got filtered and things changed.
I'm also glad that the Flash I suggested to Tom ended up being put on the front page:
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!

Yep one of the best, now only if they will top it next year.
Aahahahaha I knew it might have been an april fools joke! I thought it was nice at first but i thought everything was going to be back to normal newgrounds and China could still accsess newgrounds but i guess none of it was real. LOL Geez thats one pissed off Newgrounder you shur fooled him!
I knew instantly it was a joke but I just wanted to watch my favorite flash. China number one in annoyanceness
Bwahahhaha, I can't believe so many people are so stupid and didn't realize it was freakin APRIL FOOLS DAY!!!! Screw China, they're gonna take over the American economy eventually, anyways.
lol, some of these quotes are pretty funny.

Wow, I think those people took this way too seriously. Did you people not notice that the changed took place on April Fool's Day?
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.
Thanks for enjoying this review. :)
shut down PORTALS??!!! Oh, those ricebrained despots may screw theirselves, NG means PORTAL dammit!
And also, I think I ll do a good flash for this Pico Day.
wait...that was a joke? *facepalms* dammit HDLink stop being stupid. very clever there guy, very clever. mean, but clever.
wow if this was a joke it was pro haha nice tom. but yeah if it did ever come to the site being changed for money then i dont think alot of people would be happy. Theres a saying that you cant make perfect any better
i cant believe people actual fell for this.
