Praised be the Great Leader! ... erm, welcome back to normal, everyone!

Peace, quiet, and equality with a side dish of communist is what awaited people as they visited the message board for this year's April's Fools Day. Many, many small details had been changed, but the most visible were the Ever Staring Dr. Cossack and the Mind-Wipe Room. The Stare was present on all board pages, while the Room was summoned once a visitor (member or not) read at least 3 different topics within a span of about 20 minutes. Those unfortunate sounds were then treated to a full brainwashing provided by Crazy Frog!

At least one of you asked who that Unit #11295 dude was... Well, that was me! :D My goal was to post in several topics right and left, causing people to read more topics... and eventually "forming an opinion" thus finding themselves stuck in the Mind-Wipe Room. It worked well enough!

Here's a listing of what was changed through the board:

  • All usernames were changed to Unit #, followed by the member ID of the person
  • Profiles were anonymized quite a bit, although clues were left to help figure out who's who
  • Quotes were added on many pages
  • Everyone's status was set as "Not Administrator"
  • The Private Messenger was disabled ("why do you need privacy?")
  • All messages needed to be previewed before posting was allowed
  • A new set of rules was available
  • All smilies were actual smiles, allowing no other emotions

Part of this was inspired by a quote from Phatman, from last year's event:
Quote:
YOU ARE BIG BROTHER
The other components all fit together over time!

Those who visited the Mega Man PC Website: Dr. Cossack's Lab happened to be entertained with Hatten är Din, a Lebanese song subtitled in Swedish with hilarious pictures and animations. Who here danced along the tune? :) The hat is yours!

And of course, the stats!
  • 19 board members visited the Mind-Wipe Room!
  • Of these people, 16 masochists saw it multiple times!
  • Arkane visited the Room the most, with 10 brainwashings!
  • With 9 escape attempts in a row, Masterlink really didn't want to stay in there!
  • The Interordi.com homepage was visited more than twice the usual amount!
  • There were 20% more visits from Opera users than from Internet Explorer. X Prime, I know you're there!!

I went to the Mind-Wipe Room several times.

Unfortunately, the Great Leader didn't know about Adblock :3

Yeah, I was quite stubborn with the Mind-Wipe Room!

And I thought that there was something a little funny how that new member (#11295/sloof) talked like he had been here forever.

Going there over and over again was annoying, even with Adblock to block the sound.

But then, you'd say that anything happening on that day was annoying, so... :P

I let the sound go through so I could minimize it. The music told me when it was over.

Curses, of course you're immune to that thing!

When you saw the car picture, there was also sound played in the background. It was of someone imitating car engine noises with their mouth. It's a rather stupid thing, but it can get on your nerves pretty quickly!

Well I for one personally think this is the closest we've gotten to that mayhem since admin power mayhem however many years ago. The mind-wipe room was a nice touch though.


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

Here's a demo of the Mind-Wipe Room I've quickly thrown together. It won't keep you captive as the real one did, nor will it release you properly after 60 seconds, but you should get a pretty solid idea of what people had to endure.

The demo also shows the Ever Staring Dr. Cossack, directly in the board's header.

I stopped by specifically to catch this year's April Fools. I enjoyed it. =)


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*

When I went into the Mind-Wipe room my speakers up as loud as they could go and I was given a fright!

When I tried to visit the board on April Fool's Day, starting at about noon, I got a "board is down for maintenance" message. I continued to get this for the next three days. Apparently, this was a good thing.

ZOMG UNFUNNY MEMES. Or, more like old-people forwards, since that's not exactly a meme at all. I know there's still going to be new 10-year-olds at the board and such, but I don't know if any of them post regularly (at least not in the chat forum) and they probably also don't know about April Fool's... if they were here maybe their head exploded.

Proving once again you're just a soulless insane person, cause that was funny as all hell.

Infact this was the best Fools joke of the year, since it caused several great things

Deviantart was the second best with all the fangirls spazzing about what Twilight avatars they did or did not have
