Default Happy April Fools!

I hope all of you survive today without too many pranks.

Me and nathan (admin of battlestargalacticaclub.com) decided as a joke we would switch forum looks for a day. Hope you all enjoy our little gag.

LOL! Actually this is the way Nathan's forum looks! I can't steal his design now!

I have to give it back.

That was great!

Before I saw the April Fools message you had me confused. I thought for a minute that maybe CF was closing down and being combined into Battlestargalacticaclub.

I was soooo confused! I have to tell you though - my PC was having fits trying to process the links from the e-mail notifications - it was taking quite a while, so I gave up. It never occurred to me that it was "intentional". On a side note, I was wondering why nobody at CA made mention of the forum swap....doy!

It wasn't until I went to my bookmarks and clicked on the one I have for Fleets, then it just popped right up.

No more bloody, buggery suprises Thomas! It's been a weird week and this one really blew me away...... It really was clever!

Best,
Bryan

Ok the only thing going to seriously confuse me all day is that my instant messenger thinks that all my pm's from colonial fleets are from Battlestar Galactica club , where I am a memeber as well it's going to be a fun day thanks Thomas.....

I actually did a triple-take at the screen, and thought I'd hit the wrong shortcut.



Well done, guys.

Wink Happy April Fools Day!

Hi,

Happy April Fools Day! I hope you enjoyed the prank that Tom at Colonial Fleets and I played. Tom corrupted me at about 3 AM and we decided to trade forum designs. I changed our background, headers, and scroll bars to match the design at CF. Tom did the same, and even went further and changed his forum name and link colors to match ours. I hope you had fun, and look out, who knows what will happen next yahren!

:laugh:

Regards,

Nathan

You Got me Tom! Your'e the only one that did today
I thought for a second that I was on the wrong site, or maybe fleets had combined with BSG club.
Good prank, but............ I miss the nebula.

This layout truly rocks. I love the text on black no doubt, but this is awesome. The background image is fantastic.

Whoa!!! It took me this long to notice the website name. I hadn't been fooled by the layout change, I assumed that Thomas or Don simply decided on a new look and I got used to it that quickly.

Hi,

I posted screen caps at my forum. Check it out, and you can also see how Tom's design looks at my forum until 3 AM Eastern Time.
