    April Fool's!

    Hey guys, I would just like to thank you all for participating in this April Fool's joke. Big ups to Steven Bowers aka deckoman(key)83 for being a good sport and playing along with this. It was a good run and a lot of the replies were great and pretty hilarious. Thanks to all who read, linked, posted on other various forums, etc. This has been pretty awesome.

    Brandon W.

    NOTE: I know it's not April 1st in a lot of places (especially for our western hemisphere members), but we wanted to include all. So tomorrow for you Western Hemisphere, Happy Aprils Fool's!

    The boobie-eyes were the kicker. Bravo! *giggle*

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Aww, darn, I was kinda hoping it'd be part of some even larger April Fool's... some kind of hugely thought out military manœuvre that had been in planning since January... hmm, maybe it's already time to start planning next year's then. I mean, it was good, but it just wasn't evil enough.

    Was last year's the banner ads? That's about the time I arrived at the site - I was a little pissed off at them, but didn't realise then what the significance of banner ads on CA.org was. Banner ads... on concept art!!

    But to the foolers, nice job at keeping it rolling; it would have been terrible if it fizzled out. Heh, and thinking about all this has given me quite a beautiful basic concept for an April Fool's joke. Though once again, that was pretty damn good.

    Though it was obvious, that thread should be saved as a complete tutorial on how to become the next Manky83 in 9 easy posts

    You have studied your subject (and your victims) carefully, well done.

    the noface thread was a joke (the one that got renamed)(not to sure what your talking about here but you mentioned my username)

    my name is not Steven Bowers, and this had nothing todo with mankeymankeymankeymankeymankeys mankeymankeymankeymankeymankey day

    i got bored at college and had to do something to keep myself amused, me and my mate worked on it (my mate worked on the image because he was very bored, it was my idea to take it onto a forum)

    it was a joke, me and my mate are not really this stupid. i really needed a laugh

    anyway it would be nice if someone changed my name back to deckoman, i don't like deckomankey83

    bye
