Now when I click on BGG in Bookmarks or on the yellow words Board Games at the top of the screen I am sent to the page that looks like a Google front page with a text field and the button "Search". If I type something into the text field it gives me a list of matches - typing "front page" produced a list of Monopoly related games (?). It also allows me to access the BGG Front Page but only "temporarily".

What can I do to get to my Front Page directly?

Thank you.

Me too, but with the message that I can still access Boardgamegeek for free for awhile. Is BGG about to start charging "membership dues?"

I understand its a joke. Sort of like a flaming bag of poop on my door step.

In my defense I live on the West Coast - the last populated time zone. For me the fun started yesterday. Celebrating March 31 by watching someone elses idea of humour and not being able to find a damn thing. I was planning to do something very serious on BGG, yes I was (you have no idea). I had on my glasses and a fake beard! But I was stymied by these shenanigans.

The question remains - how can I quietly opt out of this exercise without disturbing others joy? Or do I have to wait untill tomorrow?

Thank you.

Dang it! I fell for it hook, line and sinker and I don't have an excuse because today is my wife's birthday. When she was born her father called and told his mother, "Guess what mom, we have twins!" She immediately explained "April Fools" and he said, "Not this time!"

I need to get my head in the game (I heard you all groan). Sorry.

I decided to revert back to the old interface - the new one was much too neat and clean, plus it had a lot of bugs.
