Hahahaha! This is so funny! Some people actually believed that shit!? No way! As soon as I visited Newgrounds at one in the morning and saw the China skin, I knew that it was an April Fools' joke. Dude, we were like April 1st? I didn't believe this joke for one mili second. "April Fool's" was my first thought when I saw the red skin.
Now, enough of laughing at naive people, I want to give my opinion on this joke. At first, during the first few hours, I admit that it was kind of cool. I liked the fake NG Chat, the funny filter and the restrictions. However, later during the day, it started to be annoying. It was hard to understand reviews and other text. I was also looking forward to keep track of my medals again and watch/play mature movies/games.
By the way, April 2nd is my birthday and I am not 19 years old. The fact that jokes always happen before my birthday is funny to experience.
I must thank Josh Tuttle (PsychoGoldfish) for bringing us the NG Chat. I was happy that you finally made one. I knew that the fake China Chat was actually a teaser of the real deal.
I also want to say that bob did a great job for re-skinning Newgrounds for April Fools' Day.
And finally, I also want to congratulate the rest of the NG Staff, including Tom Fulp, for successfully fooling many people and for all the work they did to make this happen. You guys should win an award for the best April Fools' joke of the year!
