OK everyone, you wanna know the real April fools joke? We're serious. Ever have something start as a joke but once it's going is some great it hast to become real? (8-bit tie anyone?) That's kind of the deal here. We couldn't come up with any pranks we thought you'd buy, so we went with something legitimate that we knew no one would buy. And now that we've got the place redesigned for such a fun theme, why not run with it for a while? At least until an even cooler one comes up. You can still talk about Star Wars to your hearts content, and I suppose we can give you back the other subforum now (Thanks Ry), but you seriously need to relax. Whining and threatening to leave isn't going to accomplish anything, it just makes you look bad and no one wants that.
Now go build something!
