It went something like this:
Code:
for(;;){
popup(www.mx6.com)
}
or whatever that would look like in Javascript. I was actually kind of annoyed that such a trivial bit of code (which could easily have been a coding mistake in a different context) would crash Firefox.

Wikipedia is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) in which participants play editors of a hypothetical online encyclopedia, where they try to insert misinformation that they are randomly assigned when they create their accounts, while preventing contrary information from being entered by others. Players with similar misinformation to promote will generally form "guilds" in order to aid each other.

The year before that I loaded a pink theme...looked awful.
The year before that an announcement displayed that said that MX6.com was now owned and operated by ClubSi.com.

Oh that pink was rough.

For people who missed it, I took a screen shot.

Can't forget you turned the For Sale section to look like probetalk

When was everything reversed/backward? [edit: I actually read a few posts above after.]


And for anyone who missed April fools (like I almost did). Here is what the homepage looked like.

that pink is a thing of beauty

One forum I'm on had some pretty crazy April Fools pranks. Here's a couple of the things they did there:

"Sold" the site to a fake new owner
Posted fake news articles that one of the moderators was arrested on a murder charge
Touched off a fake message board war that suckered in people off several other forums

That last one was the hardest one to pull off - we spent a whole month making a phony forum on one of those free message board sites and populating it with fake posts before touching off the flame war. But I'm very impressed at this prank - even if I wasn't around to see it when it was up.
