Pretty lame effort guys. I get the joke, but April Fools is only funny on April Fools.

Points for effort though, particularly for the theme. Fix up some of the buttons and I'd probably keep using it.

The jumbled up sections is annoying, though ;X

Also, this is a copy off of Bulbapedia/probably Bulbagarden, amirite?

It's not even April Fool's yet, it's too far away. So it can't be that, must be for different reason.

No. We had this idea before we saw theirs. It's just coincidence that they were doing it too.

Nuh-uh! ;_; Bulbapedia's Slowpoke joke was based on how slow the site was loading. Which... technically applies to PC too but that's so not the origin. D:

April 2nd, 2010, 11:10 PM
Hey, nice joke. It took me a minute to find this section to see what was going on. It's 1 in the morning, I'm on my DSi and BAM! There's a slowpoke sitting in the middle of my screen.

Nice joke. Isn't April Fools over, I'm sure that's the whole point of this joke. But, I'm not liking it, unless I had my computer or my Wii. Why? Well, the memory is full. In fact, I had to go to "New Reply" to post this instead of using the Quick Reply box at the bottom. It ran out of memory. :(

Nice job, though. Now I want my theme back. I kinda miss it. But I also like this one, I don't know why. It would be cool if this could be in the style chooser-thingamajig.

Pretty damn weak compared to last year's April Fools joke. It's also made worse because Bulbapedia did the same joke, but on time.
We actually had our idea of using Slowpoke before Bulbapedia did it, and when they did it, they only used it for their main page. The forum boards was a 504 Error theme. Also, the irony of this April Fool's Joke and Slowpoke is that Slowpoke is slooooow *yawns* Hence why we did it two days after the 1st instead of on the exact day. Then, Slowpoke wouldn't be slow it would just be "on time." That's pretty boring you know. Plus, we had people going on April 1st wondering why nothing was done. So in all, it pulled off pretty well and IMO topped last years April Fool's joke.

I'm amazed at how many people hate this. XD

I'm still loving it. :P
I'm amazed at how many people still don't get it. D:

...but I love it too.

You missed the deadline for your April Fools joke, and now you're coming up with lame excuses. This is just pathetic.

Oh, and Merry Christmas.
We're not coming up with excuses. >:( If we had to come up with a complete fake excuse is that ... "Oh, we didn't think of anything good in time, so we pulled a prank on the forum a couple days after." =P

Plus, I pretty much explained the irony of this prank when quoting Yuoaman, so yeah, I don't feel like saying it again. I'm slooow to.daay. *yawns*

Taking a Pokemon I couldn't really care less about, and putting it in a theme with a colour I HATE, that's why XDDD

I'm just saying it's a good prank and I'll stick by my opinions. Besides, why would I need to suck up to the ones that don't like me anyway, I'm just agreeing with the ones I get along with.

And yeah, back on the topic of the skin >>

This honestly would have been funnier on the 1st. Sure, I know it's SLOWpokecommunity, but it's rather irritating. Kinda like the Great Battle of Lyoko Freak, but only worse.

Alright, perhaps i can hold off my lax hunting for now. You keep talking about how pathetic the joke is, yet you haven't taken into consideration how pathetic it is that you won't stop EDIT and moaning about it. You sound like that annoying chris crocker kid who screams "Leave brittney alone!" Your trying to sound condescending by saying things like merry christmas but really your coming across as rather hypocritical.
There would be no reason to turn everything into a slowpoke on april fools day that would defeat over half the joke. The fact that the SLOWPOKE joke is happening after april fools day is the joke. If you don't want to think of it as an april fools joke fine, think of it as just a joke.

Now stop EDITing whining, log off for 24 hours. Problem solved.

Edited because i don't like infractions.

We actually had our idea of using Slowpoke before Bulbapedia did it, and when they did it, they only used it for their main page. The forum boards was a 504 Error theme. Also, the irony of this April Fool's Joke and Slowpoke is that Slowpoke is slooooow *yawns* Hence why we did it two days after the 1st instead of on the exact day. Then, Slowpoke wouldn't be slow it would just be "on time." That's pretty boring you know. Plus, we had people going on April 1st wondering why nothing was done. So in all, it pulled off pretty well and IMO topped last years April Fool's joke.

Okay, but you could`ve made it better xD

Why didn`t you use Unown?
Would be funny too.
Everybody would be named "?" or "Unown", would have Unown as a user avatar.
Background would be black, all threads would be called "???" or "Unown" xD

I can see where you were going with it, but since it wasn't done on April Fools it feels a tad...inefficient.

Pretty damn weak compared to last year's April Fools joke. It's also made worse because Bulbapedia did the same joke, but on time.
Exactly. Although if Bulbapedia hadn't done the same first, even though you thought of it first, it might have worked.

..are you serious? D:

Nuh-uh! ;_; Bulbapedia's Slowpoke joke was based on how slow the site was loading. Which... technically applies to PC too but that's so not the origin. D:

To all of you people who don't like this joke.... just deal with it. Now if you guys got a prob with us not pulling an April Fools joke on April 1st then drop me a PM (I can tell you who came up with the idea on waiting until after April Fools to pull a joke, I'll even make it easy and link you to their profile via that PM).

The whole point in waiting, was to be different, and have something new. Yea, maybe April Fools is only funny on April 1st. Yea maybe last year's was better (I personally think it was). But here's the thing people... you guys didn't like what we did. You wouldn't have liked it if we pulled it on April 1st (and wouldn't have had as much meaning.... and you wouldn't have gotten a new theme). Or you would have said "Oh last year's was better. This one is boring.", there's just no pleasing all of you. I don't mind people saying "Oh, well wasn't that funny. | It's kind of late" but the stuff like Jolene was doing (and no, she wasn't banned for "speaking out" as much as it was flat out bashing and thinking it's ok to get away with it. An AA even told her to stop and she didn't) was wrong and the wrong way to go about it.

What I'm trying to say is... yea it's a joke guys, laugh a little, it might not be within April 1st, but jokes aren't only funny on the 1st of April. If you want to complain then be my guest. But do it in a way where you get your point across and not be like Jolene who thinks it's fun to bash a few people. If you don't like it then stay off of PC for a day, things will be back to normal soon enough. Remember, we did this for you guys (the members), if you don't want us to do anything for April Fools (or don't want some trick outside of 12:01am to 11:59pm on April 1st) them just say so.

It shocks me how some of you guys miss the point in the joke. I can understand a few of you guys who actually get it and don't like it, but if you don't get it, then that's just disappointing.

Very saddening, indeed... So much effort put into this, going that much to waste... There is so much emphasis on the meaning of the joke on the title of the thread itself, as said in previous posts! I feel dissapointed in these people...

Anyway... *yawn!* This joke was awesome, seriously, I love the irony behind this ^^
Btw, will this theme be avaliable in the future? I likez it =D

Strange, the width is fixed on my end. Must be my computer's resolution or something like that.

Cherrim
April 3rd, 2010, 11:51 AM
o.o The minimum width is set to like 800 pixels or so. If you have a small resolution, it may not change from that. But for anything larger than that, yeah, it's fluid.

I think the person that conceived the idea to do this should get an award. Or an emblem, perhaps.

This isn't the first time something like this happened, from what I heard.

Truth be told, that's the first place I went to.

I like my non-fixed width skins. xD
I like skins if:

They look nice
They don't take up too much memory on my DSi and Wii
That's why I use Pokelink 4 blue.

So, you guys removed the style-change thing on the bottom of the site on purpose, right? xD
That was the first thing I did when the Slowpoke thing came up. I thought they came up with a new skin so I tried to change it.

Also, quick question, if we use this skin after today, will the forums still be muddled up?

I doubt it. The order of the forums is always the same and controlled in Rukario's Master Lair. So no need to worry about that. Just enjoy the cute pink Slowpoke after today.

The delay was funny, mainly because we were waiting around on the 1st for a joke, and then on the 3rd we get all this pink. AAAHHH my eyes!!!!!
