    Wait why is the site not in their usual April Fools goofiness with TFW2005 becoming The Fuzzy World Today?

    Or is it still early in the a.m and were waiting till later?

    It's past 7:20pm here. I suppose it'll start whenever the TFW mods feel like it. Either that, or they're deliberately skipping it and doing it all tomorrow to troll us.

    Or, they're showing us mercy this year and not doing it. At least it isn't Rangerboard. They put up a shitty Twilight theme. On top of that? They enacted a rule for the day: Make fun of Twilight and you end up infracted. No shit. Plus they added an autoload QT clip of the movie...on every damned page.

    It stops being funny when you punish people to accomplish a prank. Plus the bandwidth prevents dial up users from accessing the site. What kind of an asshat does that?

    Never liked the fuzzy april fools thing, anyway. Made it really hard to browse the forums.

    Although to be quite frank, I never liked April Fools to begin with.

    Maybe, but I usually make it a point to troll people a couple of days later. That way, everyone isn't 100% prepared, expecting, and of course bored by it.

    Pretty much how I feel too.

    I was really dreading coming into the boards today to probably find them stuffed with some kind of My Little Pony nonsense (more than usual I mean) and retina-searing pink backgrounds because it's 'teh funnie'. Besides, it's not an April Fools prank if everyone either expects it or knows that's exactly what it is when they arrive at TFW and see it's been changed to something garish and troublesome to navigate. It's like turning up at work and discovering they're throwing some horrible office party for a member of staff you hate and you've no choice but to endure it until it ends.

    Yes, I'm a miserable fucker.

    Let's hope them not trolling up the boards this year was the prank, in which case I was totally fooled, and this time happy to be so.
