2006- Todoroki takes over PC, staff drama, blackout theme.
2007- Erica and Jorge quit as admins. Christos gets modded in Rom hacking. I know, not the funniest thing ever. Let's say nothing happened.
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.

They used the world filters to change normal words like black and white to Herdier and Stunfisk. "April Fools" would come up as "applesauce." There were others, like typing "tympole" turned into something incredibly long.

Applesauce Day is definitely my favourite of the two April Fools' pranks I've been a part of. It was relatively simple but had such a massive impact on the forum as a whole, as it affected everything and caused so much chaos! Lerroux was OK, but very convoluted for what it was. 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.

Oh yeah the word censors. That was fun...


...Until they found out how to bypass them.

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.

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.

2006 was the best prank we ever pulled. It was unmitigated chaos and people were still freaking out about it days and weeks later. 2012 was pretty much an inferior copy of 2006.

Best pranks are only the ones that aren't right on April 1st, as people become guarded about it. Well, at least I tend to take every news with a grain of salt on April 1st on the internet haha.

As one should. I remember the BBC pulled a prank a fair while ago. They should a video that seemed to be a discovery of the first flying penguins on the South Pole. It was a really convincing video as well, so I imagine lots of other people (especially ones considerably older than me) were convinced as well. Since then, however, April 1 has always been 'NATIONAL SCEPTICISM DAY' in my eyes! :P

My research tells me that yes, yes there was. Done in the 50s no less. How forward thinking of them.

I've only been around long enough to witness one prank, and I missed it. Though I'm told it was pretty much stupid so that makes me feel better xD

Finals end for me on Friday, but after that I get to go see an amazing play called A Christmas Chaos :D.

Pretty much everyone in the cast I'm acquainted with, so its like a comedic run-through with old friends lol. Shouldn't it be nice?

My time off for Christmas starts soon...within a week or so, I believe. I honestly don't remember when it begins. :T

Being homeschooled means I don't always get vacations and days off when the local school does. So I'm glad to have around 2 weeks off for this.
