CAUTION April 1st....

Regarding Amiga News...

Believe nothing that is written from 1st April 0000 BST till 2nd April 0001 BST.

Yeah, looks nice on the quantity of actors and costumes and very cheap on the acting, but...

[EDITOR'S NOTE: April 2, 2008 - 12:01 a.m. PST. Yup, you guessed it. The Legend of Zelda trailer featured above is part of an elaborate April Fool's Day prank. Check back in later today for more details on the IGN/Rainfall Films collaboration that resulted in this "love it or hate it" piece of videogame movie history.]
... still, looks pretty legit to some...



Anyways, any suprisingly good jokes out there that you guys fell for, or actually believed?



Or, any *REAL* news that felt like jokes?

Like, the MorphOS 2.0 goes public info, that generated a tiny bit of a storm in the cup, here and there...

Well, WHOLE vampirefreaks.com got fooled by the main guy, who claimed there is a new function built-in to "remotely" delete a member's profile you absolutely hate. This would've been, you have learned to hate this person because of this and that, have this person included in your friend's list and now you press "DELETE" and this person's profile is purged from the server. Forever.

Hordes of ppl believed it, and even backed up their profile so that it would not get lost in a "kill"

Quote:
New Feature - Kills

New feature - now you can "kill" 1 member, which permanently deletes their VF account. I know there's a lot of drama going around [...] hope you enjoy, and use your "kill" wisely!

if your account gets deleted, you are free to make another account, although you will lose any of your previous data, so you may want to backup your shit just in case.

to access this feature, you must be a member of the site for atleast 3 months, have 500 rating points, and then follow the instructions here.
