It's OK. I just bought out Microsoft, so it's in safe hands :ugeek:

My favourite this year was Google Translate for Animals (Google UK). Another good one was the Wikipedia one about England's tradition of wife selling

"Stole" is a bit of a stretch. :roll: We came up with the idea late last night and then found out afterwards that such an April fool's prank was pulled by MyBB in 07. Maybe subconsciously that's how we came up with it? *shrug* I can asure you there was no mention of MyBB anywhere in the conversation that lead up to the final result ;)

Wow I have about 2000 members..I guess I better choose which 29 members I want to keep around and ban the rest so I don't get charged.

BTW does Admin count as a member??

That really doesn't say a thing ;). It *could* be possible that he had posted 4007 posts in a forum that you can't see, in that case if you do that search it would only show 3 posts for you :geek:

And I would love to know why it even matters in the first place.

(Not to mention, "stole" is blatantly misleading since MyBB cannot "own" an action.)

Now, would you care to elaborate, monseigneur troll?

Ya know, even if that is what happened, and I'm sure it isn't, if it were me and I was part of a community, I would consider it an honor that another site thought the idea great enough to use. Furthermore, since when is an april fools joke off limits after it's been used once?

Another thing, what gives you the right to speak on behalf of an entire community?? Was there a petition or even a topic where they all were upset at this or is it just that you took it upon yourself to be offended for everyone else?

There's no reason to get upset or defensive over an April Fools joke, guys -- as we can certainly tell, the "Microsoft has acquired/bought/partnered with X project" scheme is not unique (matter of fact it's probably been done by many, many more projects/websites, even today), but that really doesn't matter -- it's a joke, nothing more. No need to take it so seriously.
