Drpepperfan wanted to make this thread but couldn’t due to some weird bug. Anyway, post the things various sites have done for Easter April fools. This can include Easter eggs, site changes, redirects, etc.

Here’s a few:

KnowYourMeme

For our own awesome site, we had a sale on all entries! Bargain prices! Everything must go!

Google Maps

For April Fools, Google Maps had a Quest button that would transform the world map into a 8 bit style map with sprites of castles, shrubs etc. The street view was transformed into a pixelated and lack of colors view.

Memebase

Over at Memebase, the mods accidentally changed the pH of the site, transforming it into MemeAcid. All front-paged posts that day had that weird text with tiny symbols coming of it.

Chrome Ad-Block


The Ab-blocking add-on for Google Chrome instead of blocking ads, transformed them into cat images. Someone will be happy. I’ve heard that the developer is considering making it it’s own separate add-on.

Imgur

Imgur adopted the Giraffe as their new mascot. With the background of Imgur.com being a giraffe for the day.

Mars Effect

MineCraft creator Notch launched the site marseffect.net advertsing his not fake upcoming game that’s definitely not a parody of Mass Effect.

Post any others!

Entry Sales as KYM april fools joke?

I know something better…

Why don’t we just Confirm and Feature “Super Robo Jesus”. Even if it’d be for just for one day.

It would be glorious.

^On that same token, the Bethesda Forums have changed all the topic titles to ponies.

And let’s not forget The YouTube Collection.

And Google Racing, although it is based on a real project to build a car that drives itself. And there’s Chrome Multitask Mode.




In fact, Google has made so many jokes this year, that listing them all here would be too time consuming. Here’s a compilation of all of Google’s jokes.

Okay wait this is the best one:

Let’s make a list for the stuff users on KYM did.

  • The staff allowed the purchase of entries.
  • Various mods and members are being impersonated.
  • JFF is being flooded with April Fools threads.
  • I confirmed Super Robo Jesus.
  • Mister J and Efrain turned the MLP article into Comic Sans and G1.

Anything to add to this?

uhhhh…

you do know we have to clean all this up.. :)

Well, I tried to buy most memes with an altered account that played off of the meme itself.

“And who ran up a $3.61 charge for a purchase from KnowYourMeme.com, young lady?”

This is relevant to my interests…

Gotta love the mane drills.

Here’s a list of what all the Memebase sites did to all front-paged things that day:



  • Very Demovational made all images reverse demovationals (with a black box where the image would normally be and the image only being seen on the edges).


  • This is Photobomb made them Where’s Waldo images


  • GraphJam front-paged Graph Jams and other raps about charts.


  • Senor Gif front-paged all kinds of weird gifs


  • Comixed only front-paged depressing comics.


  • Art of Trolling front-paged only pictures of Trollz


  • Rage Comics exclusively had rage comics that featured Dolan
  • Superheroes only had panels of unpopular super-villains.



  • Pokememes frontpaged everything but Pokemon


  • My Little Brony faked that MLP:FiM got cancelled


  • Fandom only front-paged Twilight related things


  • Science posted false facts

  • And finally, Video-games had only table-top / physical games

I faked my death ( by Pneumonia ) in front of my best friend, coughing fake blood and all… she wanted to punch my face to death after i went “HA! APRIL FOOLS! Who’s bad?”… Next year i plan to fake my death once again, however i will have a “Fight” with her boyfriend… only to jump from the 3rd floor of the building (Just like how Shin died in Hokuto no Ken) only to fall in one of those inflatable stunt mattresses

Ah, I’ve thought of many April Fools pranks that I’d decided were pushing things too far, but there’s a big part of me that’s pleased that there are those who are willing to go there anyway.
