As you probably guessed, yes it was all a joke. No haxoring here, no sir. A lot of you were quick to realize it, but some weren't and it was fun reading the PMs that were sent to me LOL. That made it all worth it :D.
Though we did go down for 2 hours today, but that was just a DB server upgrade that took longer than expected ^^;;.
How did you like it? A lot better than last years? (If you want to see what it looked like: April Fools 2007
& April Fools 2008
) Er, on second thought, I think it's safe to say that this year's was a bit easier on the eyes :p. For details on what happened, read below.
The news post was written in normal English (albeit my poor English) and then entered into bable fish, translated to Japanese and then re-translated back to English.
The original post was this~
lol hello narutards and bleachtards and mangahelpertards and well no one piece people aren't tards. I have hijacked this site because 1) i can and 2) I'm drunk lozl
first off i'd like to say that naruto sux sasugay is gay and bleach has nothing good about it... period
also i didn't like the groups on the site so i changed them and some groups were lame so i got rid of them or made them suck even more
and well I'm going to continue to raise havoc so see ya.
The groups changed ended up like this:
Global Moderator - Brown noser
MangaHelper - mangalolz
Tech - pororoccaseijin
Administrator - Dunce
Artists of MH - scribbler4fun
Black Op - black undies
Banned - homies
International Translator - i R guyjean lol
Scanlator - scanz4prez
Translator/Moderator - busy much?
Translator - corn knee cheese wah
Translator Assistant - T&A lol
The banner was done by Xophien, yaoi background by bax colors by Nimloth and that's about it^^
Although, the user ranks were changed but no one wants to see those again >.> (a bit rude^^;;)
Let us know what you thought~ Post below :D
