Well, coming up in two day's time (for me, since I'm in the only proper timezone that exists, the glorious GMT) is the spring festival of silliness, not that the weather is very spring-like at the moment. What past pranks have you done, suffered through, or heard tell of in urban legend? Who are you planning to annoy this year?

Most importantly, of course, what do you think TVT will be doing over the April First iDay? Last year, the mods cycled avatars and other gingerbread, leading to Fast Eddie posting in Yack Fest — 'cept of course it was actually Best Of. The home page was also inaccessable, and instead we got random Home Pages in Quenya, Yoda, French, and Elmer Fudd speak. Before that, I hear tell of random avatar cycling for everyone (something to do with Spartacus, apparrantly).

Useful links on this site:

Speculation welcome!

The random avatar cycling was actually for Halloween of 2011.

Maddy: Oh, okay. I plead that I wasn't around back then.

X: When you've just had a meal but are still hungry, you go back for seconds — for a second helping of more food. When a clock is hungry, it goes back four seconds — an amount of time pronounced the same way as "for seconds".

I've read this prank which sounds potentially funny, you need some public area with lots of people passing through and a friend or two to help. Stare up into the air like there's something really fascinating up there and wait 'til you've amassed a crowd looking for the same mysterious thing. Then make a run for it. grin

I don't really do much on April Fools besides sit around looking at all the funny pranks. And this year there'll be a bunch for the new upcoming Pokemon generation, which should be entertaining. :3

April Fools Day jokes, I don't do (except for one time, if I remember correctly, and I can't remember it).

Reason: I'd literally get murdered if I attempted one. That's how much people hate me in my hometown.

Also, I prefer to be called "teenager" and the last time I wore shoes was on 25 January 2013, at my grandfather's funeral. And I don't leave home much so I don't really wear shoes anyway.

For some reason, I hope they fuck around with the avatars like they did on Halloween, because I actually missed that.

Also, wasn't the homepage also in pirate speak last year? I could've sworn I saw it like that.

I don’t even know anymore.

By coincident that April Fool's is also part of Easter.

My idea of a April Fool's Prank is called assault by the police.

My idea of a Valentine's day present is worse, apparently.

The TVT day has started, it appears!

Items:

  • Forum locations are randomised. Locations spotted so far, with potholed references, are listed alphabetically below. Please add more or give their reference as you see them, at least if you're as obsessive as I am about these things. [MOVED TO April Fools Day 2013]
  • Mod avatars (both normal and mod-hat) are replaced with this icon.

Maybe we should make a sandbox page for the locations? There's a lot of them.
