PMed tom my answer.

I'm serious - I found it.

If you found it just say what it is since you already won, but i don't believe you.
I just signed on and already i think i figured out the prank.
The people say that there is no joke are right, but wrong. The joke is that there is no joke. I pmed Tom that the prank is that he started a thread that has had everyone looking all over the site for a non-existant secret, getting frustrated and hyped up at the same time for the cash prize.

That's the prank, that there IS NO PRANK TO FIND. I mean think about it, he announced it on April Fools day and went to such lengths as to say that it's sooooo hidden and suuuuubbtle. A prank isn't subtle. That's the whole point, if a prank is subtle it is not a prank. A prank should blow up in one's face and make you feel foolish, and stupid for not seeing it earlier. If this thread is the prank then imagine how pranked you'd all feel for wasting time looking for it. It's genius.

More like obnoxious and retarded

Like I said, some people would do this, but Tom isn't a dick. I trust that he's serious about the secret and the $250.

I read through an atrociously long source code and gave up partway. This is not a prank. This is just annoying.

THE CAKE IS A LIE. THE PRANK IS THAT HE'S SENDING US ON A WILD GOOSE CHASE, ALL THE WHILE WATCHING AND SIPPING FRENCH CHAMPAGNE!

Or the prank is the first post, a series of ridiculously Rebecca Black themed songs. Seriously, it's right there.

I honestly believe it to be the fact he says it has nothing to do with the greatest game ever made. But if you think about it were all on a hunt for this joke. There for this is the greatest game ever made.

He's just using the community for some advanced bugtesting.

Any little flaw the site has will be PM'ed to him!

Well you see the person who used to be Friday changed his username to Addict so somebody jumped on and got the username. So I doubt that's it.

Aha! So I'd post the solution but Tom told me in a later PM not to because the 250 is going to be divided by all of the people who guessed correctly. Which is 2 others so far.

I will give you a hint though: It's something to do with replying to a thread.
