I had been anticipating a joke on the mx6 forum for this year, just like every other. Around 1am on the 1st of April, I opened up the ol' forum, saw the mod thing and was like huh?! I then realized it was this years' joke lol.

But it was really good!!! You fooled me for like, a split second there! It was well thought out. It must had taken some time to get that to work.

As far as the Jon thing - I never had to input my password or anything so I think i'm good.



Firefox FTW!

Anyway, good job there, scoob! Can't wait to see next years'!

haha, that was a different Jon thing most people didn't see.

Interestingly my Firefox (2.0.0.3) locked up and bound my processor immediately instead of what yours did, apparently quitting after one signed integer worth of iterations.

It did work to actually open popups in IE7, though IE for whatever reason decided arbitrarily to limit it to about 60. I wonder where in the code someone decided to limit popups to 60...and why they chose 60 instead of 10 or 40 or 100.

It went something like this:
Code:
for(;;){
popup([URL="http://www.mx6.com"]www.mx6.com[/URL])
}
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.

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.

lol i wonder wat next years is gonna be lol
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.
