To think that you would make a April Fool's joke with a cypher! God, that must have taken forever. How long did you have to plan this out and either code or find a program to do it?

Either way, this is effing brilliant. Bravo, sir, bravo.


Reality swirled in a wholly blue manner, revealing absolutely nothing of merit. Things flashed madly in and out of existence like some entirely other sort of phenomena. On a whim, Kurt Vonnegut imploded, taking a sizeable hunk of Massachusetts with him. However, seeing as Massachusetts wasn't entirely sure it existed, the chunk wasn't all that big.

Well, Doc always was good at messing with us on April Fool's. :P And when he's the person behind it's coding, he can do some crazy shiz.

I enjoy October Fool's. The good Doctor is an insane man around these times, so it's go figure he'd come up with something like this.

Well, I'm glad that you enjoyed it. :)

I'm not doing a full posting tonight with the details, as I'm eating into my sleep time already. It's a small price to pay to make this yearly event properly!

I'll report back with the complete details and explanations in a day or two. Until then, relax: everything is back to normal!

Too bad I never get to see the end of it (but then, I would have to be awake at 6 AM to do so). How wacky did it end up becoming? I've seen the changing of personal addressors (or however you call those things), CAPSLOCK and purpleizing and such, but did it get any weirder?

At any rate, kudos to you again Doc. You know how to throw an April Fools prank well done.

All posts became upside down and backwards, while placed in spoilers. And then, all of the words got spelled with gibberish. Just to name some of it.

I take my hat off to you. You set the bar for April Fool's a little higher every year.


Hey beautiful people, you're better off trying to e-mail me than message me on here.

Which is exactly why next year will see a lot of people coming back just to see the big event.

I know I will.

In all honestly, it didn't take that long to code in. Last year's preparation of four individual error pages was more time-demanding.

I've had the idea for roughly a year, but I only started working on it two weeks ago. The hardest part was to corrupt the text without destroying it. Sure, I could easily reverse entire posts, but I wanted to keep the BBCode in working order. This required me to parse the posts and change everything but the BBCode tags. Ultimately, it was all my coding: I didn't bring in any external program to do this. The fact that I know the board's software inside-out definitely helps, of course.

And it also raises the challenge's level every year! I'm happy to know that you people are enjoying the ride and appreciate the effort I put into this.
