[April Fools] Welcoming our newest Administrator.

#1 Post by PyTom » Thu Mar 31, 2016 11:59 pm

A discussion thread to go along with the announcement that The Current User is our newest admin. (See the announcement here.)


EDIT: For the record, the next post was our 2016 april fools' joke. The The Current User text was replaced by the forum software with the name of the logged in user, using a software hack.

Welcome to our new Administrator

#2 Post by PyTom » Fri Apr 01, 2016 12:00 am

I'd like to be the first one to welcome the newest administrator of our forums - The Current User!

Although they haven't been around as long as some of us old-timers, The Current User has been a valued member of our forum for quite some time now. Not just a member, but a valued member - impressing us with their history of diligent contributions. That's why I'm happy to flip the bit that makes them our latest administrator.

I hope that, along with the rest of the admin team, everyone can join me in giving The Current User a warm welcome. (But since comments on global announcements don't work all that well, let's do it here.)

I was going to post a thanks for the honor and how I endeavor to do the best job I can...but I think this is an April Fool's Day joke.

*Currently Doing: Coding of emotions and camera for the labels--On 5/10
*First Next thing to do: Code in all CG and special animation stuff
*Next Next thing to do: Set up film animation
*Other Thing to Do: Do SFX and Score (maybe think about eye blinks?)

Technically, the joke is one minute early and therefore I DEMAND to actually be made an admin! ;)

Happy April Fools, all.

IIRC, it was used in Digital: A Love Story as well.

Anyone who sees this thread and isn't logged in will be very confused and think the site was hacked by Anonymous. :)
