Couldn't this world-ending announcement be saved for tomorrow, which isn't April 1st?

I would also like to take this opportunity to announce my resignation.

Oh, no, I'm not retiring. I'm creating a nation of sig-based artwork, (Again) which, based on the new rule, will only be up one image at a time. I guess I'll have to make it count.

I'm sure we'll all learn to live with the new changes.

To be honest, I was expecting it to be a lot worse. There had previously been serious discussion of a limitation on the amount of posts people could make. Those things take up a lot of server space, y'know. ... what with all the text and everything. Sheesh.

WHAT NO I'M OFF TO MAKE A BETTER SITE NOW

... really really really

Alot of these don't make sence since alot of the stuff you said is hosting off the site

- Image dimension limits on the board will return to a limit we had several years ago: 400 pixels in both dimensions. This also includes ZC and ZQ images, as the exception will no longer apply.
- Signatures will be limted to one image per user, which must also abide by the above dimension limits.
- Userbars will now be against the rules to have in your signature, because frankly, we find them to be quite annoying. Extra space anyway.
- The Official Quest Screenshot Thread and the Spam thread in Off the Beaten Path will be permanently closed, due to their high frequency of images.

Unless your webspace was less than 1GB these don't make sence

Bad April Fools by Purezc the wrost one ever since i came to the site

Also how do you use the spolier tag


I guess I'll just leave now

Funny thing is, the exact same amount of data reduction could have been achieved by eliminating Hunter P Brown's shouts...

But the right choice was made.

As long as I get my shouts, I'm good. Posting on the forums on a cell phone sucks...45 minutes just to make a paragraph of text. Its ridiculous.

Hope I get a new computer by May. That is my scheduled month to get my new computer I want (it is 1200 bucks, with the new i7 processor, 8 gigs of DDR3 ram, 2 TB HD, and a 23" monitor icon_biggrin.gif) then...well I'll probably still be spamming the shoutbox. Lol.

I think it can only be rightly called "spam" if it is unwanted.

The biggest irony here is that most of the suggestions (not all, but most) aren't even that bad. icon_razz.gif

My idea of spam is in a can you buy at Wal Mart for 4 bucks and you grill it and put it on a sandwich.

So I considered logging in as Mokisor, but I've lost the password or forgotten that I changed it or something. Oh well.

I guess the whole clam invasion thing was kind of old after 2008 anyway.

Very funny, you almost got me there. icon_biggrin.gif It was when I read the issue about that several forums will be closed due to their large image usage, I thought: "Hey April fooling, all the images are hosted on external servers such as photobucket..." but even the topic about avatar size limits seemed a bit fishy. icon_biggrin.gif

Nice try ^__^

Wrong. Go the SotW-Archive, right-click any pic, click the "show image"-option (or something) and you'll notice the URL says something about "sephirot"-blah, who is a staff member here and that server is actually the one that hosts PZC's contents.

Now now Nathaniel, you forgot to disable your signature in your second post.

Not very clever anymore, are we.
