Follow TV Tropes
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).

The random avatar cycling was actually for Halloween of 2011.

This April fool's the entire wiki will be replaced by a depressing Eastern-European cartoon playing on loop
The entire wiki will be shut down with a fake 404 page showing a massive devolved rant by the Fast One.
And there will be a hidden link to the real stuff in it.

I'm gonna tape a "tearable puns"◊ sheet to a wall in my school.
I don't get the clock one :V
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".

The forums should be all scrambled.
@Telly - OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH. I get it now
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.
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.
Also, the next poster is a squirrel.
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.
By coincident that April Fool's is also part of Easter.

Oh that would be a nightmare.
OTC. Nunnery. Train wreck.
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.
Explosivo: The home page was selected at random from the Home Pages index, including from time to time settling on Pirate.Home Page.
The TVT day has started, it appears!

Hint: You might want to number the Locations, rather than bullet them...

Maybe we should make a sandbox page for the locations? There's a lot of them.
Also, Dunsinane Wood is from Macbeth.

I have to admit, this whole location thing is pretty clever
Thankyou, Nocturna! Alphabetically, Lu dear, or just to gather the total quantity? For now I'll just change * to #.

How well does it match the trope?
