April Fools Follow-Up 2011-04-04 10:51:52 Reply

Sadly, no one found the secret for April Fools. Oh well, maybe next year!

Some of the things people noticed repeatedly (500 PMs):

"I noticed that all the top reviewers have a review count of zero. Is that your april fools joke?" - no but thanks for finding a bug

"At the bottom of the store page: newgrounds.com - Your #1 online entertainment community. "It navs amazing!"" - no but good observation

"Akuma is on http://www.newgrounds.com/staff.html when you click the random button." - that easter egg has always been there

"Okay, go into art then uncheck E, T, and M. And A if its not. then Look" - that easter egg has always been there

"was there always the silhouette of the NG tank on the graveyard flash on the obituaries page?" - yes

"is it the lack of images on the staff page?" - no but whoops, must be the new icon formats

"Is the April fools joke that you have hidden the most users online thing on the general forum" - no but I dunno where that went either

"The Angry Face animation is no longer visible when you hold your mouse over the icon in the forums" - weird, another bug catch

"on the voting buttons, pico's nose doesn't appear to be where it's supposed to be" - really?

"http://www.newgrounds.com/cat/ Is this it?" - nope, that's just old

"the order in which new Art is presented on the Front Page. Instead of the new ones appearing on the top-left corner and shuffling the rest to the right, they appear bottom-right and shuffle old ones toward the left." - another bug catch

"Choking Hazard: Small Parts. Also, don't try to eat the actual action figure itself. You could probably put it into a lubricated condom and try to swallow that, but it's not a good idea. | Not for children under 3 years. Unless your children enjoy eating plastic. If they're able to eat a lot of plastic, be sure to notify the Guinness Book of World Records. " - Nope that's an actual store item description

"The skyline showed in the reply box is the same as the one in the Newgrounds header, but is mirrored across the Y-axis and has a few changes." - ummmm

"The prank is that this website has somehow managed to exist for over a decade!" - :(

"There's nothing. Your gonna make us take time to find it, but nothing will be there." - that would be too mean

Here are some movies and games we stumbled across during our Friday broadcast:

Also, Austin Breed has announced the next Game Jam! April 15-17th.

Don't forget that Pico Day is April 30th! Annual Award nominees for games and movies will be announced this week, along with the Best of March.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

That, people, is how you get free QA.

Tell them to find an April Fool joke hidden on the website and wait for them to send you each and every glitch they find on the site :P

We'll have to hide an easter egg in the redesign and do this again after launch.

Heh, you could use this as a way to make us users find bugs. If you do this on a more frequent basis, you should get rid of many unspotted bugs.

at least we learned a valuable lesson: if you ever wanna clean up a bunch of tiny hard to find bungs on your website, tell everyone to find the secret joke.

Not doing an April Fools joke is incredibly stupid Tom. If that's the case.

Damn, neither of mine were mentioned. Not only that, somehow I thought you would have noticed my Venture Bros fan fic by now. Maybe I just don't have what it takes to impress you people :S

At least Tom enjoyed the joke. Eh? And this one's real. I could put it on a video capture of me opening if you wanted.
