Cocky? Maybe. Little details I didn't think about right off. Honestly, I didn't expect the joke to really take off. The screw ups EASILY could have been avoided, and I could have made it stronger. Alas I was caught. No hard feelings on my end.

This. I mean, it was easy to pinpoint, little detail I could have avoided easily. All the same, got some chuckles.

I saw the HTML stuff yesterday and sent a description of it to Tom, but never got a message back. I'm not sure if it was always there, but it made me laugh. The subtle portal entry hidden link to a "NG Chat" flash in the homepage's coding, to the commentary from the site's programmers.

It would appear that the modifications to the coding in the homepage yesterday was the prank. At least it seems to be. I went back and looked at the code again today and noticed that the scripts are different from yesterday and the commentary has been removed. I really enjoyed the comment about users being "cheap" if they had popup blockers/ad blockers on.

The real joke is the fact that we'll never find it EVER! That's the joke! But it can't hurt to find it!


and now, for something completely different.

I get the idea that the prank is us pranking each other. Success, much?

If not I still haven't seen Luis post. Awfully Suspicious if i say so myself. In fact, isn't there only 2 staff comments in the whole topic, and those are on the first page?...

Either they have all died laughing or... hmm ...

Its either staff related, or penicorn related. Must be. Brain is dying... perhaps that is the joke?

Wow...I've only read the last two pages of this topic (cba to read the whole thing) but there's an awful lot of theories there. I like the idea that there is no prank and we're all just pranking each other...but then that may just be a cop-out posted by people who can't find the actual 'prank' (like me).

And then there's people posting all sorts of BS about the meaning of 'it navs amazing' (IMO, it's just nonsense words), and how '1239922' means something or other in some complicated way that nobody's actually explained, and some sort of conspiracy involving penicorns that makes absolutely no sense, and something about hacking into the site's HTML code...

I'M CONFUSED!!!

Please to say what is mister :(

Tom, at least give us SOME kind of update. Like "Nobody has found it yet" or "The prank is that you are a : prank in a prank in an inception".

The joke is probably that Tom isn't really giving away $250. Kinda suspicious.

I think that the joke is that Tom will never tell us what the joke is, and this will become something remembered for a long time on NG, maybe he will eventually come out with it (if there is one), but it might go on for weeks, months or maybe years.

Hopefully this isn't the case, but it's definitely a possibility.

That submissions had medals, each worth 0 points. If you got them all in the correct order, the "recent medals" on your user page would spell out "I'm David Fulp and I fucking own you".

This makes the most sense to me.

The prank is that there's going to be no Pico Day this year. I met him in person, I asked, and he told me.

Don't you mean to ask why do people care?

It's clear who cares. 20 pages of evidence with links to their own personal pages and description.
I could have guessed who cares.

Why people care is easy too, but you can figure that one on your own.
