The logo is misplaced (it used to be further down).

im pretty sure most people were repulsed by posts becoming unreadable and links being broken than the pony thing

Don't disagree with that, just didn't see was so vocally upsetting about the AF gimmick itself. Higher extreme than merely preferring something else, would've liked to see the Bizzaro idea JMM mentioned or the social justice thing (though that may've ended poorly lol).

the only links that were really fucked up were tumblr ones and having tumblr links down for a day isnt the end of the world.

Others the fitler was adjuted as much as possible to prevent breakage. ( at first mugen and guild were filtered but turned out to affect the links in threads for hosted people )

I wouldn't discard the ponies themselves either n the grounds that people have admitted to using AdBlock to block Pony pictures.

I'd just like to add that this argument goes both ways (heh). People can say that the detractors were 'whining' about it, that's fair I suppose. Take that same stance to the extreme and it would come across as "how can people dislike something I like?" Just as bad tbh, accept that not everyone will have the same opinion.

Complaining is something everyone does every now and then, no big deal. It doesn't make anyone a petulant child who shouldn't be forgiven so far as long as it's not consistent.

Also, why would you not use adblock if it means a more enjoyable experience for wherever you may be?

I didn't care for this year's AF but it's what more staff wanted. The word filter was insane but it was for just 1 day so I didn't mind. At least it's out of the way. We shouldn't repeat the same thing at least.

It was irksome to see some of my posts get filtered AFTER posting, even having to resort to fullwidth characters from the character map.

I don't think I'll be doing that again

I did notice the tumblr thing though and I let that one go, I didn't mind that one too much. I'm indifferent on the whole pony thing in general, I don't love it or hate it, I just hate how the joke was executed.

Yeah, carelessly implemented wordfilters on a day where people are going to be releasing creations made in the spirit of April Fools day was kinda a bad idea.

At least I was immune to the pony virus since I'm already an animal.

it's because they are already content with what they have done, mugen is not a paying job so as long as the charcter works for a creator that's enough; one's persons crouching while running is another person's change it to pots style.

I gotta admit though, the wordfilters did made some posts rather... Amusing. Weird af, but amusing.

Thanks to the staff for not changing my avatar, first of all. The concept was downright lame to be honest but it was pretty amusing, the bad part was the wordfilter though, it felt pretty forced and more annoying than funny.

Pls, make the pseudo-MI comeback for april fools happen. PLS!

Man, looking at this thread I'm kinda sad I missed this. So much to do, so little time. In my defense, I'm now in the last few weeks of my master's thesis, AND I was one of the organizers of a ~400 persons event held by my hackerspace over the easter weekend so I was busy organizing and carrying shit to the venue at that time. Can we do this again when I have time, maybe? :beam:

the original was a trainwreck, why would anyone want a reprise. unless it was a "good" edition that only amounted to changing the forum theme to something pink, changing the board icons to ponies and changing some default emoticons to ponies and changing zero avatars or wordfilters
