Who was caught in the net?

For the last 24 hours, several of you most likely noticed that the website was no longer available and might have never returned. Don't be so afraid, though: it was all just a joke! After last year's specific attacks (board, MMPC Website and oekaki), I decided to take the *complete* site down for the prank.

However, there's a little yet important detail that you probably missed: there wasn't a single error page. There were FOUR of them! Assuming that you kept the same IP address through the day, you'd only get to see one of the error pages. However, someone as close as your neighbor might have gotten a very different page. The goal was to confuse some specific people: those talking about the event through the day, as they might all have seen different pages. I can only imagine some of the arguing that took place...

Here are the four pages that showed up:

  • Domain expired: A fully fonctionnal copy of a domain expired page, this pointed the users to several other destinations. It even included a check to see if the "interordi.com" domain name is up for sale. (Don't ask: it isn't)
  • Account closed: Dr. Cossack shut down the place and asked his web host to delete everything, apparently... What a shame. :(
  • RIAA takedown notice: Hoping to scare some people with this, the page implied that the RIAA had somehow sent a takedown notice to kill the website for illegaly hosting MP3 music files. Part of this message was taken from an actual RIAA takedown notice.
  • Bandwidth Limit exceeded: A direct throwback to some of the problems that this site used to have, this page simply informed the visitor that the website had ran out of bandwidth for the month (on the 1st!?). This is the only one of the lot that might get someone to hope that the site wasn't gone for good.


And now, what time is it? It's time for the stats!

Some of the numbers will be available in a day or two only: I have to rely on the server data instead of the various counters, and that data isn't updated in real time. I'll update the following chart as soon as I can and post a notice about it.

  • 4 pages united their efforts to fool people!
  • No person was confused enough to e-mail me! *
  • 14 sites that I didn't know about are linking directly to some files (most likely for avatars)
  • At least 1 chat user, who hoped to remain online through the day to see the mayhem, was kicked off at midnight!
  • By keeping the chatroom open all day even though it was broken, UE generated 15088 error hits (that's one error every 6 seconds)!
* I don't find it surprising that no one attempted to contact me. First of all, with the site being down, there was about no way to find my e-mail address. Second, even if you already had it, you might have assumed that the account was destroyed along with the web pages.


Any comments? Which error did you see? :D

I got the Account Closed one. X3 But I knew it was April 1st, so I wasn't too worried. More or less just wondering if my oekaki problem would end up being fixed or not. XD ...I should go check on that. Toodles!

Account closed for me, but considering the date, it only goes to show just how intelligent one is if you fall for such. I kinda expected it, after last year's prank.

Hmm, I only saw the Account closed page.

Unfortunately, I wasn't fooled, because I came specifically to see what the April Fools Day joke was. ^_^

Personally, I thought it was a little weak this year, but it wasn't that bad.

I didn't look too hard for any errors, but I believe "retreive" fails the "i before e" rule.


Nothing is foolproof to a truly talented fool.

Sorry, MegaMan, but it looks like you
might be stuck up there for a little while more... Actually... at this rate... you may NEVER come down!!! *sob*

Domain expired, here. C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER

Worth a laugh. I noticed Mega Man Network had the same joke going; all of the links on the fake page had a MMN url.

The stats are in! You'll find them in the initial post of this topic. Because of a technical issue, I don't have the numbers that I first expected. I replaced them with other interesting data instead.

It said nothing for me, and I didn't see anything from you after you left to play a game. You probably messaged just as Doc 'pulled the plug' :P

I figured it was an April Fools joke after talking to Zane. I had seen it earlier but paid no attention to the date as I was busy with studying at the time (I got off track and ended up trying to come here :P). When I checked the time on my computer, I saw the date.

I had to smile and think to myself "Doc, you've done it again."

I personally got the account closure one. I must say though, this is the only one i've ever seen coming. Nothing will ever match the administrative powers smorgasboard though...EVER.

RIAA is probably the only believable one due to how strict they are about -any- music.

I got the RIAA notice and panicked, I was that worried.
Then I realised it was April 1st.
Hahaaaa~
But still, that was an extremely convincing joke, Doctor. *applauds*
but if I really did have some sort of spaz because of stress it would possibly be your fault XD

I definitely love the RIAA one, but the expired page is also a good one.

Doc, you got me again.
Ugggh, Haha.

I totally forgot it was April 1st.
Is that why there was a "kick me" sign on my back all day? ><

But then when I realized I got mad because I was so bored and needed something to entertain myself for a few hours.

Then I thought, oh well, Youtube will be there for me. D:

Yes, and I agree, it was rather irritating.
I just decided to turn off the computer and sulk in the corner. Hah.
