2008- Everybody is a mod, supporters become hstaff, staff get demoted. Still have lots of pictures!
2009- Everybody is Todoroki, and we get to use the Cheribii Forums theme!
2010- SlowpokeCommunity theme, everybody gets Slowpoke avatars and all, boards switched around. Pulled the prank the 3rd.
2011- Applesauce day.
2012- Lerroux.
2008 > 2009 > 2011 > 2010 > 2012

In retrospect, Lerroux was really rather a vain prank on behalf of us staff at the time. It was a lot more enjoyable for us than it was for everyone else, after all, and seemed a little condescending looking back.

Still, we do April Fools better than 99.99% of the internet, I'd say. Certainly better than any of our contemporaries.

So much effort! I liked it, but Applesauce Day definitely had a charm about it that is going to be hard to replicate next year and in future years.
That is really true. Applesauce day did have an innocent type of charm about it, and I think that's why I feel the way I do now about the Lerroux prank, because it was such a contrast.
