April Fool MOD

Post by Extensions Robot »

Modification name: April Fool MOD

They can also see hidden users and the administration link but they have no access to the acp.

MOD Validated/Released

Notes:
This MOD is an awesome April Fools joke to play on your users. It makes the users think they have been given administrator rights even though they haven't. Users only get to see hidden users and don't get access to anything else that administrators can do.

CLEVER MOD! Does the fake Admin Panel link display an "April Fools!" banner? I haven't had the time to install this MOD yet, but that would be the ultimate prank. :P

Here you can find some made by one of our users at phpbb.de who thought he found a bug because he couldn't believe he really was an admin: http://www.phpbb.de/viewtopic.php?p=467929#467929

2 suggestions:
1. Make this MOD able to be enabled/disabled via the ACP General Configuration panel.
2. When the use clicks on the Go to Administration Panel link, make it open instead a page that displays a big "April Fool!" image.
