The new search works nicely
Hope you're not serious about linking with facebook. We take bets in our MBA course as to how soon facebook becomes Yahoo Chats.
Facebook is old people :gimp:

Oh and the Like button doesn't seem to work. :safari:
The problem with the Trailblazer is, people think you know what you're doing.

I'll come back tomorrow when you put things back to normal, can't tell what is what right now and I'm not going to go through every thread trying to figure it out.

Several people noticed the date. Looks like about half the SMEs got informed prior and the other half got to flounder with everyone else, :finger: but I do like the new search bar. :search:

We weren't privy to this prank, we've just been around enough years to expect something stupid to happen this time of year. Like last year with the great tire giveaway or when Roadie said he was going to sell his rig for like $1000

I seen the forums this morning and thought WTF. After Reading a few threads figured it was some April 1st fun and went on with my day. Coming back to read this thread now, it was hard not to bust out laughing. This was hilarious. Thanks for the laugh guys.

This part, however, was entirely truth.

And I have been working on finding a replacement theme that will get rid of tapatalk. I hate tapatalk, but I use tapatalk only because our forum isn't mobile friendly.

I am on here 99.9% of the time using my phone, I have never used tapatalk... haven't had a problem on here yet.
What about tapatalk is better?
