    That is the most appropriate Avy/user title combo EVER!!! [​IMG]


    Now, back to W1z: YOU SONOFABITCH!!!! I was seriously distraught over this (well, that plus the loss of OtherOS support on PS3).

    That was one of the more convincing April Fools jokes I've seen.

    And to celebrate, you must now drink lots of alcohol, and make sure you have your camera easily available. :D

    "I'm glad you're staying" - is what I'm feeling beneath all these layers of hatred and homicidal feelings... :rolleyes:

    I think the prank went beyond a joke. it caused a major uproar within the forums as well as causing members start up a petition to try get you to stay & even went as far as to consider/talk about leaving TPU as well.

    TPU is not TPU without W1zzard. I would say that if you do ever decide to leave then at least take the forum down so it doesnt fall into the hands of the wrong people (who could use it for evil?) I would very much like the site to retain its honor as something that has bought thousands of us all over the world together.

    & everyone one knows a castle/army/kingdom is nothing without its king. blah blah blah im not sure if thats the right phrase.

    Im glad your staying.

    Can't believe people actually bought it. It was pretty obvious... the owner leaves his site because a few trolls? come on! That's why they invented the banhammer[tm].

    maybe all of this was conspiracy theory to distract the masses and no one never know that Dan is missing

    I was kinda skeptical to whether it was true or not, but man thankfully it's not, I didn't want to use other tech sites :)
