    I was too busy hiding eggs, eating them, putting things away in my old things and coming back home to be on the forums. Next year, 1 April won't be a bank holiday in France so maybe I will miss it indeed. This year, I didn't have the time to.

    Well, I guess Mike gave us a very existencial-like April's Fool prank this year: He pranked us by not pranking us. Classic. I suppose that in past years it must have been a royal pain in the ass to go back and clean up the forums from all the shenanigans of April 1st.

    But I do miss those threads about crustaceans and assigning the newest forero to be the one moderator for the day.

    Ah, the good ol' days…

    I think the fact that it coincided with Easter was a big part of it. Lots of vacations and other things going on right now. :(

    (Send me a PM next March 1 to remind me how much you like it and we will do better next year.)

    I missed it, too. I have been known to spend the whole April 1st laughing like an idiot in front of my PC, but this year I felt more like crying in disappointment!

    I missed it, big-time! I stopped in and frowned when it was immediately clear there wasn't a silly thread in sight. I think it was last year, though, that I PM'd Ewi - I mean an unnamed MOD - and asked him if a certain thread was indeed an April Fool's prank.

    He told me that it was legit. Boy, was I glad I didn't answer with some smarty-pants reply! :)

    I hope next year we can have the fun back again. There are a lot of very funny people here.

    I miss it too. I even took one regular post for the Fool Day's post. Fortunately the poster did not get offended -- I hope so. :D
