[CLOSED] April Madness
« on: 28 April 2011, 06:56:43 »
This topic is an archive, please do not post.



This topic in a bombshell. On 26 April 2011, word filters were used to turn many words into others for fun. For example, "omega" would turn into "mudkipz", "multiplayer" ended up being "watergun fight", etc.

Unfortunately, it was poorly received, and all filters were slowly removed until all were finally removed. It is unlikely to resurface again.

A full list of things that were filtered:

Because of the poor reception, all filters were finally removed within two days, by the 28 April 2011.

Hmm...that's too bad, some things were nice.
Anyways you probably/really should have just locked the thread. Threads like that are locked/would have been locked are good for reference and etc, I think that's why the general rule is to just lock threads and not delete them. Let's just try to follow that...and to be a good example for others, of course.   :thumbup:
(And maybe if there are too many problems, then perhaps this can just be only done on April Fools every year.)
