Don't worry, FBI didn't get us (yet)

Update: It does seem like we angered some communities and Cyanide with the fake screenshots part of the joke. That's quite understandable when you think about it, and we apologize. No offence was intended.

Not a year without an April Fools joke, right?

We've had plenty of jokes over the year - everything from a certain girl singing "Friday, Friday" to a doped Johan Museeuw on the cover of Pro Cycling Manager.

This year we decided to let FBI shut us down using the take-down banner you get when you visit Megaupload.com. And it does seem like we got some of you.

Our loyal Thomas Dekker-fan Ruben even took it as far as creating a thread on PCMBenelux where he complains about the stupid Americans. He isn't the only one, though - I've seen people tricked in other communities, though (yes, I'm looking at you, Maddrengen).

But that's not all. Remember how we fooled PCMNorge back in 2010? Well, we took a few screenshots of PCM11, added a PCM12 logo and sent them to a few sites. Guess who was the only site to publish them? PCMNorge! Quite entertaining - again.

So - thanks for playing along again this year. It's been fun, and we're already looking forward to next year.

The point that I stated that it was not serious was ignored, I see. Pfft

Maddrengen: no we can't

So... it was just... a joke? So you're saying those two guys in suits who came and knocked on my door wasn't the Feds? I mean, when I opened the door and he said "Have you meet Jesus" I thought he was just trying to keep a disguise!

Maybe I should go and let them out of the basement then...

I have PCMdaily on favorites, but the forum site is the startpage for me, so I never discovered the "prank" until someone told me. For my perspective the page just didn't work, as it turned white. I could override the "problem" my stopping full site loading though.

Only realized it when I saw the post you linked to from here Smile

Happy 1st of April to you guys.

You know what would be a good April fools joke next year? Not actually doing an April fools joke... Grin
#17 | roturn on 02. April 2012 13:10
@16: That was my suggestion. Wink But I liked the one that we used more. Wink
#18 | atalm on 11. April 2012 16:19
@Maddrengen if you could read norwegian, you would undestand that it was just an original member who posted the screenshots, saying this looked like a joke, how that becomes tricking pcmnorge, is hard to understand ^^
