TheJudeAbides, it's not that we are unimaginative, it's just we were trying to stop the pandemonium, and people making themselves look stupid.
Anyways, good prank!

This was a wonderful prank, you had me worried.

That is a very good idea. I'll have to keep that in mind next year.

Well played, sir. As fun as last year's week long escapade was this year's joke was far more believable. Good work. I went outside for the first time in 5 years due to the FBTB holiday.

I would like to add that all forum members should remember the examples done these past two years in preparation for next year's inevitable prank. We're bound to have new members by then, and they will be just as worried as many of you were this time around. Now that you've caught on, be savvy next year; play along with the mods/admins and contribute your small part to the prank. That's what the spirit of the joke is all about. :)

Once again, great prank. I did suspect something as soon as I read the title, but I will admit it had me going for a few seconds. Of course, if this had been last year's prank, I probably would have fallen for it without a second thought! Very well played by all.

I think the retraction is the joke. I think it was all real.

And you were there. And you. And I'm going to miss you most of all scarecrow.

I seriously spent an hour just thinking about what that announcement would mean to me and then wrote a few paragraphs until it dawned on me that it was April Fools Day. Thank you for not shutting down FBTB but more importantly, thank you for the time, effort and resources you put into this community. Same goes to the moderators. You guys are great.

Wait, this was a JOKE?!

I spent the last 3 days away from my computer (which is ALOT for me) because FBTB is really the only thing that draws me to go on. I was just getting really depressed it was gone and decided to type in the address to see the new site to say my final good byes...

I hate you all.

^Hugs? Hugs? HUGS??! What possible illness could Solo have that causes him to offer hugs? You'd better see your fellow misanthrope House for a diagnosis. ;)

Or did you just have too much chocolate yesterday?
