Only 12 Days To Go, April Fools Is Coming...

Though we already expect theymos would do something crazy again, so let have an early discussion on what he might do next?

I think:
Shutting Down bitcointalk.org and Run Epochtalk and let us ecperience the whole thing for a Day. - though it might turn out some Beta Test and not an April Fool Thing.
(although it wasn't yet finish) Tongue

Let's ruin the fun so we know what to expect Tongue

I would hide the merit and trust system. Come up with an overly confusing and convoluted reason for it.

People would go batty on both sides. It would then obviously reappear for the 2nd. A good old fashioned prank to get peoples feelings on a bit of a rollercoastee

My suggestion for this,"No more signatures on this forum from April 1"and you know how much of chaos will create around the meta compared to trust and merit related threads. Grin

That would be deliciously cruel.  You know damn well that there would be a certain percentage of members who would totally believe it, especially those who haven't been here for previous April 1sts or who haven't been paying attention (though last year's prank would have been hard to miss).  However, I would much prefer that Meta not become a septic tank, even for a day.  Last year was bad enough with all of those fake attributes Theymos added. 

OP, don't spoil the fun.  And I'm pretty sure if Theymos pranks everyone this year, he's already thought about what he's going to do.

There's one thing I've always thought to be a good joke for casino roll results: switch red and green! That could work here too. My Trust for example would be: 87: -0 / +14 Shocked

Yep, adding some fake/random negative feedback to users for one day could be an interesting April fools' social experiment  Cheesy
It could work better than simply reversing the numbers.

Good luck for the Pussy Cult if that Happens, They will surely make their trust setting flooded with Reds 😂😂😂

I really can't wait for the April Fools to come. If somebody here has a correct guess on what theymos will be doing, I will give that user my remaining sMerits and a dollar Cheesy



However, I would much prefer that Meta not become a septic tank, even for a day.  Last year was bad enough with all of those fake attributes Theymos added.  

OP, don't spoil the fun.  And I'm pretty sure if Theymos pranks everyone this year, he's already thought about what he's going to do.

Sorry mate, I already did 😂😂😂
As for the Meta Section, theymos might close this for a day Tongue



Edit

Ban everyone for a day.
Then I think shutting down the forum will be the best way and to avoid hassle.

EVERYONE is demoted to the rank of newbies for a day - collateral damage: Explosion of the meta section

Or even better, removing all airdroped merits would demote most users to very low ranks - it would be probably less then 100 Legendary members, and anyone who is not get at least 1 merit would become newbie + locking Meta board Smiley

Probably Theymos has some good idea which will confuse many users, but this is the essence of April Fools Wink

How about:

- Doxing all connected accounts with the same IP (fake or real, who knows …)
- Creating a social media campaign in the Altcoin section with the objective of getting Bitcointalk to become trending topic (wait, that could be a real one).
- Banning Merit stats and Trust stats from the forum (whoops …).
- Creating a bot section (for bots to chat).
- Sending a temporary ban message to all unmerited accounts … or to all merited accounts.

2017 April Fool by Theymos.

Happy April Fools. Smiley

It was actually 100% random. Each user got between 1 and 4 coins, with fewer being more likely, and for each you would get a random cryptocurrency. I organized the cryptocurrencies into three tiers according to recognizability/popularity: tier 1 coins were more likely than tier 2 coins, which were more likely than tier 3. Then a random title was added to each coin name. There were a little less than 100 coins in total: I took the top 100 based on market cap and discarded a few that seemed to have never had any real interest.

But as I'd hoped, even though it was random, plenty of people just happened to have badges that were complete matches or mismatches. Smiley



2018 April Fool by Theymos.

This is an april fools joke.

While merit improved things a lot, clearly more adjustments were necessary. Therefore, some new rank requirements have been added in addition to the old requirements.

For example, consider someone with these stats:
Quote
Merit: 40
Activity: 56
Politeness: 36
fMerit: 56
Imagination: 36
Virtue: 40
Coins: 56
Karma: 40


2019 April Fool by Theymos. (just a prediction)

By looking at previous two years example, I could guess it would be some edit to our current profile status for sure. Something like new type of badges for different ranks for a day.

But it's better not to ruine the fun behind it.  Grin

This has the potential to expose a lot of hypocrisy among certain people and could create enough chaos to last until the following April fools.

Lol, Why did you made it on public what you have PMed combo with theymos. (Ain't true or maybe?) Made me laugh hard on that.
Say Sorry to theymos now mate. Smiley

Btw, that is funny! Cheesy

Maybe theymos would consider this

-All positive or red trust went neutral. Wink
(trust rating went equal on that day)

Reporter badges, but based on the number of bad reports.
Rename the forum "BitcoinSVtalk", and declare CSW the one true Satoshi.

This has the potential to expose a lot of hypocrisy among certain people and could create enough chaos to last until the following April fools.
Or, you know, just show who is using the same VPN service or Tor exit node.
