Well i really did think it was a prank the hole time, but i joined the "rebles" anyway.
My favorite part was makeing the people who admitted it was a prank, feal sorry by saying ialmost left! I would never leave, even if gold happend!

I rather enjoyed the joke. It was clever. I mostly loved seeing everyone's reactions though I did feel some people took it a bit to far. Overall, a job well done.

I'm not even sure what side I was on XD I was going back and forth and even in between (that calm down thingvwas the in between) but mostly sitting back and watching the chaos unfold while eating popcorn. By the way I still have some left. Anyone want some? *hands out the bowl*

You didn't get me with the gold thing but I admit you got me wondering whether this was getting out off hand or not :lol-fox:. I wimped out at the end thinking we where gonna end up in trouble or something. THAT you made pretty convincing! You kept me up till 3.00AM watching the amazing carnage unfold! The posts have stayed but what of the amazing titles on peoples accounts? People have just edited them back since sadly :sad-fox:.
I <3 the screenshot function. FOREVER IMORTALISED!


BEST THING EVER!
I'm sure there was more but still.
I don't care that April Fools if over. That has feature has gotta stay and the power should be randomly passed around or something!
I'm keeping "true believer"! Such a better title. :lol-fox:
That was greatest Aprils fool day ever!
Alright this is something that's been bothering me a lot. If some specific people were able to alter custom titles, then who or better yet how did the change Michael's picture?

I looked into that, because I was curious about it too.  I discovered two things:

1.  Gold members actually were able to change custom titles, so there was a bit of genuine mischief going on; partly why the members chosen to get the title weren't random, they were carefully chosen, with the expectation that they'd know how to have some fun with it without abusing it :-)

2.  While the site's administrative tools extensively track pretty much every change to a user's profile, and pretty much every action a moderator takes, there are gaps in these tracking tools, and one of the things that appears to not be tracked is avatar changes.  So, I'm genuinely not sure who changed his avatar, but I'm still looking into it.  I'm pretty sure the Gold members couldn't do it, because I didn't toggle any permissions that seem like they would allow it, but I set all this up super last-minute (I was travelling for family stuff the night before, and couldn't get to it until that morning, hence why the announcement didn't go out until 10:30am).

So, lesson learned:  Next time I fiddle around with the permissions for an April Fools joke, no matter how small, test the changes!

Plot twist: this year is actually next year and we have already done it so we have to wait till the year after.
