Okay, April Fools Day. And I thought the site had been hacked! Boy am I gullible.

By the way, I did try the "Create Random GroGnadS Post" just to see if anything would happen.

Very good. I was fooled for a moment, You are logged in as Aldie. Oh no, he's tweaked it again and left it wide open. Oh. Oh I geddit. Slowmo Webserver. Very good!

No doubt you're logging who clicks which button.

Cheers,
Jon.

I had to take a double take for a second, for a brief moment I completely forgot what the date was and I thought there was a bug in the login logic.

I thought it was a bug. I didn't examine any of the prompts closely, and of course I didn't try any of the buttons. Still, I should have picked up on the "create random post" option.

Well, at least he didn't use Hot Games to promote Tichu.














O. Wait...

Think there might be some more bugreports today than usual. laugh

We had been discussing the fake article in the newspaper (that the pope hade visited a school in the city of Malmö, not far from here) minutes before I logged on to BGG, otherwise I would probably have bought it. Great joke!

OK, I did request 50 Geekgold but only to see if it worked and I would have given them straight back again afterwards. And all before checking what day it is today...

It was a damn good April Fools. Good work, guys.

I especially loved the "create Grognads post" button. It wouldn't surprise me if that was true.

Well done indeed!

The best kind of AF is the one where the most people get taken in, and I'm willing to bet you got a 100% surprise rating on this one.

I hope you are logging who clicks what, 'cos my other bet is that 'create random Grognads post' will be most popular.

How much of your site 'tweaking' in recent weeks has been set-up for this...? ninja

Cheers, from yet another http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/2627

My finger was hovering above the 'prt scr' so people wouldn't thin I was pulling an AF joke, when my brain finally caught up and I realized that .... it is april 1st, so why do you think you're logged in as Aldie ?? laugh

I got as far as thinking this isn't good, someone should tell aldie when I noticed that I was still logged on as myself in the normal top left corner notice. Click Click...ooohh yeah April 1st.

My click also was for the random Grognads post. Now I want Aldie to produce the code for making random grog posts just to see what would have happened if it wasn't a surreal and very funny April fools joke.

Well done.

I loved the "Approve x Images/Games" and "Anger Users - No Button Necessary".

I had to do a doubletake before I realized the date. Well, done Aldie! The best joke page I've seen in quite awhile.

I had my finger on the "Print Screen" button, when I realised.

Brilliant.

I was so freaked, I didn't even look at it closely, hope I can get a second chance ...


edit: (had to close and re-open browser ) yes, excellent!! And, Aldie, how often do you misclick on that "crash database" button?

I was about to post my own April fool joke here, and still i was hesitant for a second. Great idea (no need for me then blush )!

I did try out "Sell out to Hasbro"

I can't get the "Crash Database" button to work. Should I report this as a bug?

I was actually in the middle of an geek-mail to Aldie. I had taken a screenshot, and then I started to actually read it.

I can't decide if I like "Anger Users : (no need to click a button)" or "Create 'Random' GroGnads Post" better!
