I hate April Fool's day. Mostly it's stupid people doing stupid things and going "Hur Hur! Got you!"

I'm 100% with you. It wouldn't be so bad if even 10% of the fake stories were clever or funny. April 2 now seems to be a day where ever site has to do damage control from all the "hilarious" stories they published the day before.

For the record, we aren't doing an April Fool's joke this year and likely will not do one any year going forward.

There is an unfortunately coincidental bug affecting the site forums right now - that's not April Fool's related. I've alerted the developers.

It could be a meta joke though. You SAY it's not a joke as part of the joke.

Maybe this is the developers' April Fools joke on Aldie.

I'm not even complaining about BGG. It's inconvenient not to be able to use the forums, but that's a small thing. It's the fact that I might as well not even look at the rest of the internet today that really bugs me. Every site tries to be clever and make fake stories. I can't recall if it was funny the first time it happened years ago, but it certainly ceased being amusing long since.

There should be a parallel holiday called "stay off the internet day". Can't believe anything you read April 1.

You should have gone to a game convention today instead of surfing the internet. Worked for us!

I can't tell if this is clever sarcasm or if you actually think its any safer to ready anything on the internet the other 364 days of the year.

Generally agree, but one April Fool's thing that happened this year I can get behind:
Cartoon Network aired a preview of Rick and Morty Season 3 Episode 1 under a DBZ listing. Looks like S3 is going to be very interesting. Such a great show.
