This is all the topics started for the April fools joke on the forum 2011. Redbird5 came up with this one (he NEEDS to get a job folks ;) ) and asked me (NC) to play along so I created a :ph43r: new account as Cubfan1 :ph43r: and wreaked havoc on the board. A couple of you caught on but most everyone bought it hook, line and sinker :lol: :lol: :lol: ! I've combined all the topics and put them in this thread so read along and enjoy! The quoted post below is the first announcement from Redbird saying that some 'routine maintenance' will be conducted late in the evening of 3/31. I've combined all the topics and put them in this thread so read along and enjoy:

Is this to lure us into a false sense of security for an April Fool's Joke. Though the biggest is that the Cubs Home Opener is on April Fool's Day, which cheering for the Cubs to win the World Series is the biggest fools errand of them all.

No, this is true maintenance. Why would I do that? I intend to advertise heavily over the next week, and having a April Fools joke wouldn't be the best idea while trying to get people to come to the site.

Unless they love comedy, but then again, if they liked comedy, they would probably go to the site that shall remain nameless.

It's all good. At least it is after the game. It is understandable. I appreciate the work that is done to keep this going.
