And we only have a little over two weeks...

What do you want to do for April Fools Day this year? :D

Is it that time of year already?

We could say Shane has accrued a massive gambling debt, and to help pay it off he's quadrupling the ad space on the site.

We can't see if we can invert all the colors on the site, blame it on the tech forums that just appears to have made a big hole and is gone form the list and in it's wake is just a pair of yellow do not enter lines?

Hide all of the forums. Claim that none of the forums had enough activity to justify keeping them, so everything has been reduced to just one forum.

Censor everything that isn't smileys and punctuation.

Not really feeling these much, but I have absolutely no ideas myself.

So, uh, Jere+CL combo.

Our April Fool's Day joke will be that we forgot to make one... then do the actual joke on April 2nd instead.

Censor everything except smileys and punctuation. And then change the font of the asterisks to wingdings.

Censor a few dozen common words to a few dozen different common words. Exempt mods and insist nothing has changed.

Oh, that could work. Take a bunch of words and censor them into unrelated words or synonyms.

Bunch->innumerable
Just->Justice
Realize->Discern
Quiet->Silencio
Finally->Orange
Definitely->Unmaybe
Super->Diamond
Mod->Top Dog
Admin->Toppest Dog
good->meme
rude->gigantic tool
jerk->Cyclops
Bad->your favorite game-esque
SJW->CIA
perfect->flipendo
sex->high-velocity cootie transfer method

I'm going for Jere's option, but I love X-3's censor suggestions as well.

There's an invert button on the style colors. I'm not sure exactly what that does, but it's probably not good.
Now I know there's a reason you shouldn't blame others when you do something wrong, and that reason is: you might get caught and have to apologize to a bunch of dumb peasants.
