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.

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