Could be, even though M-bot is above the other moderators and is the one who sends you those nice messages.

I looked at cached versions of the site, and it's never been there before.

No. He's always been listed there. He's listed as every mod. Super mod.

Speaking of M-Bot, anyone notice that his profile image of its face looks a lot like the M-Bot's [scan] ID pic you see in Armada (Dreamcast)?

No. He's always been listed there.

The most recent cached version of the site is from October 1st 2010, and it wasn't there.

Maybe not always. But I've looked there before, when I got icon modded, staring at my name, and noticed it.

You create them using Adobe Flash Professional. You make cartoons and makes.

DO NOT just steal flash files from random sites to submit here.

More info, here.

If you already won, and already received the prize, then tell us what it was.

It was amazingly subtle indeed.

But! Tom went in to the oldbbs and made a very temporary thread. Simply said "April Fools" as the title and said, "Clever of you to look here". That was it. No one would look there. There are no real links to it. Amazing, actually. Of course, after I got it, he deleted the thread. It's no more than a place to archive the old.

Sad I couldn't reply. Took a shot and sent it to Tom. Got my money. went back and it was gone.

Kinda like Noogrounds, in that sense.

April Fools!

Brilliant deduction. Please tell us what led you to this conclusion.

Honestly, it just made the most sense out of nonsense!

Oh my, it would appear that a number of people are upset that they no longer have the biggest e-dick in the room.

Looking at the drama of all the other posts, the actual prank itself isn't really a April Fool's Prank, but an April Fool's Treasure hunt.


No!

Even if there actually is an April Fools hidden somewhere, I just find it hilarious thinking about the amount of users who must have fruitlessly searched various obscure pages on the site in the hope of finding something, anything.

I don't know about April Fools but Tom certainly trolled a lot of you. April Fools or not.

Wow, the very old bbs post, to be honest I thought it didn't exist anymore.
It was a very clever place to hide the joke there. To be honest I thought of
searching in the old post, but since I couldn't find a way to get there so I assumed
it didn't exist anymore and started searching everywhere in Newgrounds to find
something out of the ordinary. (too much free time)
Congrats on winning the scavenger hunt, you deserved it.
