Well played.

Wai thank yoo. 8D

I loved how it became more believable as the day went on, hahaha. That was something I hadn't expected. Props to Greg for his dedication in his playing along. XD

I did think quite highly of that little idea~ I figured that would shake the confidence of quite a few people around here. My masterstroke, as it were.

I hate you. Most of the PMs I send are actually about that >______>

Though I was thinking today in school that PM means 'Personal Message', and if Forumotion mods were going through our PMs then it's a breach of privacy >:/

The closed forum joke I've had pulled a couple years back. A site I worked for actually pulled off this very elaborate prank in which they spent a whole year making a fake site to post in place of the actual site for the whole day which was designed by a 'rival' site claiming to have hacked us. So when April-Fools occurred we pretended the site was hacked for the whole day. It was really well done, like we had even prepared a fake forum in which we pretended to be the guys who hacked it.

One other time the forums were literally closed for the day and were replaced with a 404 error message.

*bows deeply with a small flourish*

It was alot of fun actually. Creating fake news to heighten the drama && trying to make it believable was a great laugh.

@Pura: You don't mean that Pura, you are just saying that to make me feel better~ also, totally not the way it works. Their database, their rules. They are root. Hence why I've been pushing a move to a websever hosted by a member for a while now~

@ Pura: I think they can.

After reading through the TOS (an interesting read which I don't recommend...) they can aparently do whatever they like to us, without much prior warning...

@Pura: I would expect they'd need reason for suspicion before it became justifiable, but yanno, if you're PMing about that kind of stuff it's a breach of the ToS, so it would be justified. Razz Not that we care, lol. (Wouldn't it suck if forumotion actually did try and shut us down? Then none of you would believe us. D: )

@Lennon: Sadly, we aren't quite that high tech. XD

hehe, i was tempted to stay up and see if anyone else realised come midnight, but think i caught that damn chch bug, so had an early-ish night.

Although just for the record, I am actually moving the gallery.of.geek.nz site, and it did only cost me $9.50 US for a years hosting. :) hehe. Still working on transferring all the data though. sad

You guys suck. Razz I figured the 12 midnight thing OUR TIME actually made sense because then it's working hours in the US. I was just too bug-eyed on stress to really notice.

What would you guys have done if we'd started spamming the forummotion guys with protests?!?!

We would've let anyone who got serious about retaliation in on the joke, I think. Or if it was a group, probably announce it as being a joke early.
