Actually the animation is showing up for me when I move the cursor of the icon after the audio starts. If I keep it on the icon it does not show up.

Is it the emoticon in this message? Because I seriously sat there with the mouse over it for a minute straight and I hear nothing...

Might be my browser though, I'm using Minefield...

It is the emoticon you used in your message but it doesn't work IN the thread, only when you find a thread listed with that icon. Like shown below.

No April fools secret? That's just diabolicle, though I guess it's going somewhere good so that when the redesign comes you know the rest of the bugs around the site which you have missed.

About the whole angry face animation in the forums, I could hear the audio immediately but not the actual face popping up. However for some reason when I scroll up and down a few times it appears where it should be. Weird.

You probably glazed over my PM of Marty being back. It was very detailed and elaborate.

And since there was no april fools joke, wouldn't the first person to pm you that technically been correct and gotten the $250?

That was the joke dude, the joke was to TRICK everyone into thinking that there was a joke that you would get money for if you find it... Was I seriously the only one who didn't fall for it?

thnx :)
From any thread listing, put your mouse over an angryfaic emoticon and wait - you'll heard the audio, but the animation isn't showing up like it used to.

HAHAHA awesome, it works fine in IE, but it does not in firefox 4. Please fix it :):)

Lol.

Amazing how so many people still fell for it. I thought about 90% would immediately think the whole contest is the prank and hardly anybody would bother looking.

Not the best Aprils fools joke I've seen here, but it was definitely a successful one. And in fact, I don't we've ever had this many people falling for the Aprils fools joke in the past. So well done staff!

Was the prank Bizzarro Tom on the staff, or has that always been there?

Although there was nothing hidden and it was all a wild goose chase, at least you Tom got some site bugs reported that have been there for awhile. Looking forward to the redesign.

I just hope it still has the same site colors and such, as long as it is that I shall be happy

That's always been there along with Akuma, Guile, Wadolf, and since he left to work with Yahoo! Ross.

Oh the hatemail...it's fun to think the people that were disgusted by Club a Seal and Assassin back then are probably playing Castle Crashers with their friends or kids now.

Only if we can get to that redesign soon! Do you have a launch date for it? Even an optimistic one?

My dissapointment was that I had just told my little brother how awesome Newgrounds got on April Fool's, and was excited to show him. And I only found ... nothing.
