Hello,
Im April 2004, als alle ungeduldig auf die neue phpBB Version - damals noch phpBB 2.2 - warteten, wurde der phpBB.de-Aprilscherz geboren. Wir verpassten phpBB.de den Look von phpBB 2.2 und „verkauften“ euch ein phpBB 1.0 als Beta des phpBB 2.2. Mittlerweile ist der Aprilscherz auf phpBB.de eine lieb gewonnene Tradition.

It means afaik: Translations can vary ...
In April 2004, as all impatiently for the new phpBB version - at that time still phpBB 2,2 - waited, the phpBB.de Aprilscherz one bore. We missed the phpBB.de Look of phpBB 2,2 and „sold “to you phpBB 1,0 as beta phpBB 2.2. Meanwhile the April joke is on a phpBB.de dear won tradition.

BTW: Among them ingenious stories, jokes, as I mean.

The tradition has in the process of the years decreased and nevertheless often provided for fun in the past. And if there was no April joke in some years, this was the joke, since this failed in the respective year due to development lacking and/or missed dates justified…
There was simply much too much to do.

;) I look today for straight suitable screwdrivers, in order to release the screen from the infestation to.
