xD Got me for a few seconds too. Suddenly a boring Thursday has become interesting, for the whole of a couple of seconds ;P

hehe, I was fooled alright. I completly didn't think about it being april foolsday. I thought someone had hacked the database or somethings. Seconds after I posted about it here, I went to the general forum and I realized... feeling stupid

Threw me for a loop, because I saw it change...entered one thread, exited, and then all I could see was lumberjack... and didn't even consider the time zones thing. My April fools day is almost over, so it was quite odd.

Does make reading interesting, though! ;) I just have to remember for tomorrow morning, when it's still the 1st in the US.

Er... I don't know... this may be a hack... I am unable to reach photo galleries from clicking "Photo Gallery" from a User's sub menu, additionally, certain elements are missing from site, such as the navigation menu.

I find this very... disruptive and confusing. I am making note of all the changes on the server... the actual word has been spaced out so as it might not be detected by whatever script is doing this at the moment. I really don't like it... April's Fool Day or otherwise...

Damage assestment report by AllyUnion @ 4:15 AM PST

The following changes have been made to the "forums" part of the server:
All links to c o s p l a y.com has been changed to lumberjack.com
Anything with the word 'c / o / s / p / l / a / y' has been changed to lumberjack
This includes 'c / o / s / p / l / a / y / i / n / g' = lumberjacking and such
Anything with the word 'A / n / i / m / e' has been changed to Cartoon
All Photo Gallery links now link to Google thereby doing a Image Search of "Lumberjack"
All moderators have now unique names...

The following forum names have been "pranked" upon: (this list excludes anything with the word 'cos play' or 'ani me' in it.)
Ultima
- Formally "Final" "Fantasy"
*** It looks like that all references to "Final" "Fantasy" turned into Ultima.
Lumber Discussion: Mumbling Angsty Rock / J-Pop
- Ja pa ne se Rock was the correct title here
Caulk
- The Cross playing forum
Light Switch Rave / Skit Discussion
- "Masquera de"

Side effects of the word replacing: Many links are now broken, due to the fact that if any of them included the words above, they were replaced.

Word Replacement Dictionary (that I found so far):
Ja pa ne se = Japanese
An im e = Anime
Co sp la y = Cosplay
Ad mi n = Admin
Ad mi ni st ra to rs = Administrators
"Final" "Fantasy" = Final Fantasy

Listing the Ad mi ni st ra to rs of the site forums: (Just to see what changed)
Admin
Aeris
Yuna
Rosiel
Eurobeat King
Maryssa
Studmaster
Karisu-sama
ZiggyB

*anything with the mod name's end up replacing twice after editing...

If Kyle really intended this, then he would have done the whole site, but this is not the case. Plus it would not be poorly done either. The whole change and scheme is inconsistant, and I do not believe he would take it as far as disrupting the site by making certain features not working.

One other thing, any word replacements have occurred everywhere on the forums server... this includes AIM names and such. Apparently, anyone with "Yu na" in their nick name also has been affected.

yep, some things are a bit annoying.
About the admin not wanting to screw up things like the gallery, maybe he/she didn't think about it at first?

About the Lars "Admin" Nordqvist not wanting to screw up things like the gallery, maybe he/she didn't think about it at first?

Pretty sure it can easilly be ammended once the script that replaces c0splay with lumberjack has been stopped. The admin knows what he's doing!

Anyhoo it's now 14:16pm here so the jokes on you now Mr.Lars :razz:

Man, that totally creeped me out. I didn't associate it with April Fool's Day until I saw this thread. XD I thought my computer got yet another virus or something. I even restarted my computer... .... no, I'm not... gullible.... *cough*

So thats what it is! ^^;; I looked on the site this morning and for most of the day I was trying to figure it out.

Kudos to the adm1ns, I for one think its hilarious, and I'm proud to be a Lumberjack!
