    Anybody who felt there lives were ruined by having Oznerf down for one day clearly needed to take a break from Oznerf.

    Once again, the only people I hear complaining were the banana-benders...

    I still don't know why I made a fool of myself and went that far to spend 10 minutes on a ghetto pillow cover in form of a mailbox...

    Here's my solution.

    Bonus points for having that picture legitimate to post in the pictures thread; it currently has a 75-round belt.

    I must've missed the posts where people claimed that their lives had been ruined...

    It was a minor inconvenience for myself, but definitely nothing life-threatening! There is a wealth of information contained on this site, and all members have the rules hammered in to them at every opportunity by Admins/Mods, to keep this information easily accessible, relevant and free from congestion/useless topics.

    In complete contrast to these rules, the site was technically shut-down for a day, to participate in a prank on the one day of the year where this behaviour is common practice. Probably the most interesting point of this, is that no one knows the origin of April Fool's, or why practical jokes have any significance.

    Now don't label me as the "Fun Police", I enjoy a prank as much as the next guy, and this was probably one of the most original pranks I have seen. I did have a bit of a chuckle, and join in the fun, but I did lose interest rapidly. It must have something to do with us "Banana Bender's" wanting to get some value out of our spare time, instead of dicking around with mail boxes!! lol

    STATE OF ORIGIN Nerf War anyone!!

    As a complete outsider, I enjoyed it. With the hacks on NH and NHQ, I figured if this was another hack, at least the haxxors had the spirit of the day in their hearts.

    Yes, contact was lacking. Big deal. As others pointed out, it was only going to be for a day. If it had gone on longer, well, there are other things I should be doing anyhow.

    I LOVED the 1911A1 mailbox, though. This was very original and well done. Props to all involved!

    @Taerkitty - have they sorted out the hack on NH yet? I can't check at the moment, as my browser is doing some funky security protocols, preventing me from accessing any websites that aren't saved in my Favourites folder.

    Think I may be due for a HDD format!!

    You do not need to take my comment in the literal sense as it was merely a response from the observation of such individuals that expressed tones of exasperation; it justifies my comment in the first place.

    Then again, sometimes I do wonder if the AFD letterbox prank really destroyed lives. That I gotta see... and laugh...

    It's not like it mattered. The forums are dying (not due to the letter box prank), but for various other factors that many probably know about. This time it's actually 'dying', not because of what it was before.

    I thought this April Fool attempt was at least different. Unlike the one attempted by Jemy (or whatever his name is, a modder and ?admin from Mod and Review website) telling people he is quitting Nerf and no longer updating the website. He was swamped with replies about April Fool joke. Very poor and unoriginal attempt by him, he should stick to his day job rather than trying to be a comedian.

    Pranks like that don't really work when the next day you're back posting a new blog.
