      I agree, TD, that is the one thing I don't really like, jokes or pranks about something serious, or that can result in someone getting hurt.. I actually think that it's kind of cruel, but that's just me..

      Well, it all started when I mentioned that I had just converted the last of the skins we used on the old forum, which was on IPB, over to the new forum's software, which is on MyBB. And my co-admin mentioned that it must've been a night for new skins, because he had just released his.

      So, I went over to his forum, and was pranked when I saw that he made his forum look like another forum we are a part of, and he posted a notice on his forum saying that he and the other forum had merged.

      Now, normally, I am usually aware of April Fools, but this time I sort of forgot about it since I am still busy with setting up my new forum even though it is now a year since we left IPB. I mean, it has been exactly a year, and I still haven't fixed my rules, FAQ and help topics, they are still in raw HTML from the conversion and so, it is embarrassing when you see guests reading the "Why you should join" topic, only to see an unformatted post in HTML.

      Anyway, so he actually managed to prank me, and I congratulated him.

      His mentioning a new skin gave me the idea to recreate the very first skin I had ever made, for my first forum on Proboards, so I decided to make a MyBB version of the Proboards skin I used on my first forum 10 years ago.

      I didn't initially do it as a prank, but as sort of a throwback or a nod to the first forum I have ever made.. and i didn't decide to make it one until I thought about how good my admin got me, so, after having recreated the skin, I downloaded a ringtone for Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" or, if you're familiar with memes, the "Rick Roll Song" and I made a hidden embed for the file to play as soon as someone lands on the page.

      I originally set it to loop, but that attribute didnt work, and when I saw that it restarted whenever you clicked the link, I decided that it really wasn't necessary.

      Anyway, after I set that up, I made it the default skin, and I set it to be the skin that everyone was using. I also posted a happy April Fool's greeting with a smiley in the skin (just in case someone might've forgotten like I did) and topic about the skin, with a link to a live preview of the old Proboards forum from 2004 using the same skin.

      So, if anyone visited my forum today, they would see the very first skin I made 10 years ago, and also be rick rolled at the same time.

      Unless of course, you visited using Tapatalk, in that case, Tapatalk users would just see the topic I made about the prank, and know what was going on that way..

      My members got a good laugh and they thanked me for not disabling the skin changer.. lol

      I mean, I'm not evil, but I am kind of annoyed that I didn't think of it sooner.. oh well, there's always next year right?

      Anyway, the skin will stay in the changer, for nostalgic purposes, but I'll reinstate the default skin, and at around 8 PM EDT, I will remove the music.
