"Stole" is a bit of a stretch. 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
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 youphpBuilderBob wrote:3. if you search his posts it come up only with 3: http://www.phpbb.com/community/search.p ... mit=Search
And I would love to know why it even matters in the first place.
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?
Fine with me.iWisdom wrote: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.
