I'll be making this one short, much like the attention span of a phone user nowadays! :D

Last year's prank messed up with the display of forum posts in various ways, but was apparently so sneaky that almost no one realized what I did... To counter that, this year, I went for an in-your-face version by bringing back colors and fonts that would've have been right at home on a Geocities website of the late 1990s!

My plan was to make things even worse, with animated gifs, "under construction" signs all over and magical scrolling / glowing text, but I must admit that I ran out of time to include such details. I still felt that the heavy blue/yellow colors, with a bunch of Comic Sans text, passed the message I wanted. :)

Most of my pranking efforts went on the Creeper's Lab side, which I'll be posting about shortly. Pulling two tricks side-by-side is difficult when most of the people only seem to notice one of the two... and so the bulk of my efforts focus on that!

I post musings, images and nonsense on Tumblr! I play games on Steam! Add me on either/both, and don't hesitate to ask if you want to play something with me!
