This is all the topics started for the April fools joke on the forum 2011. Redbird5 came up with this one (he NEEDS to get a job folks ;) ) and asked me (NC) to play along so I created a :ph43r: new account as Cubfan1 :ph43r: and wreaked havoc on the board. A couple of you caught on but most everyone bought it hook, line and sinker :lol: :lol: :lol: ! I've combined all the topics and put them in this thread so read along and enjoy! The quoted post below is the first announcement from Redbird saying that some 'routine maintenance' will be conducted late in the evening of 3/31. I've combined all the topics and put them in this thread so read along and enjoy:

The forum will be closed after 10 EST on March 31st for some routine maintenance, and will reopen on April 1st. :cards:

Is this to lure us into a false sense of security for an April Fool's Joke. Though the biggest is that the Cubs Home Opener is on April Fool's Day, which cheering for the Cubs to win the World Series is the biggest fools errand of them all.

No, this is true maintenance. Why would I do that? I intend to advertise heavily over the next week, and having a April Fools joke wouldn't be the best idea while trying to get people to come to the site.

Unless they love comedy, but then again, if they liked comedy, they would probably go to the site that shall remain nameless.

It's all good. At least it is after the game. It is understandable. I appreciate the work that is done to keep this going.

We're funny but actually care about each other (for the most part ;) ). Over there the tone is of dislike and not caring of each other, kinda sad.

You guys are funny in a ha ha kinda way, while they are really funny in a dark, dysfunctionaly family kind of way. Kinda like the Royal Tenenbuams, with A LOT less talent. It's funny to watch fight and argue with each other and make physical threats to each other under a screen name in an internet forum.

The forum will be closed after 10 EST on March 31st for some retinue maintenance, and will reopen on April 1st. :cards:
What exactly is "retinue maintenance"? I thought I was a retinue of this place and I didn't get an invite. How exactly are planning to maintain the retinue? It sounds like a good idea. Maybe we should even try to grow the retinue, it would however be hard to improve it.

Okay, confess. How many of you had to look up the word "retinue"? :P

The scheduled maintenance went badly tonight, the entire site, my precious site went the way of the dodo bird. I am beyond angry! I'm pissed off. Zeta will hear from me. I was under the impression that there would be a few changes, the only good that came from this was the yellow emoticons.
