What an unbelievably stupid way of driving away those readers who protested so strongly against the removal of One Shots and it's replacement by an incredibly immature Leaderboard series.

Haha, almost had me going. You've got your "easily offended e-crybaby" impersonation down pat :)

I love April fools day.

@Ehra

I love April Fool's Day too, and there have been some brilliant tricks played over the years.

However, taking a subject that caused a lot of angst on the part of the site's readers and throwing it back in their faces under the guise of a joke isn't the brightest way of celebrating the day. It's just crass.

Kinda reminds me of times when I go exploring in some dangerous wild wilderness in MMO's and put on a David Attenborough type voice and narate what I see to my pillow. Watching an asortment of Bores in thei natural pixilated habitats is one of the most satisfying thing one can do. Watching the digital plats grow is another one of my favrite pastimes.

After many years of observing differnt species of Bore in MMO's I have concluded that they never leave the area they are born, just wonder aimlessly (often repeating the same pattern over and over) and their bodies have a tendency to just disapear after several moments after they die. They then reapear out of thin air after about a minute. I have yet to come up with a theory how they do this but will get back to you when I do.

The word "humor" in the subtext of your title does not help the selling of one shots, especially on this day of all days.
I do take pleasure in finding out of the way places and just take the time to enjoy the scenery.

@DemonXaphan I do too, honestly. It really is my favorite hide-out zone in GW, even if it is not my favorite plant. :P It's one of the few places with a bank that has water you can run relatively deep into, and the actual storage is way out on a little islandy thing. And the best part is no one else is ever there!

But that's not as funny hehe. :)

I think your April Fool's joke is going to backfire on you when you find that most of us reader's find this staged shot and it's faux-commentary infinitely more entertaining than the leaderboard column.

I think the entire point of an April fools joke is for it to be entertaining more entertaining than the typical site update. A joke being entertaining isn't exactly what I'd call a "backfire."

@Plastic I'm going to take that as a HUGE compliment. I am never sure if the stuff I hope is funny actually is. :P
