Short and sweet. We ask that you please make an extra effort to refrain from posting bogus/misleading thread titles on April 1. Consequences will be severe. We don't like it on any day of the year. But April 1...... goes without saying.

I know. "The mods have no sense of humor."

Contrary to urban legend, there are rumors of an actual funny bone within the hallowed halls of the staff meeting house. But when so many people rely on a site to get their news and such, it's not always the best idea.

So the choice is yours:

Hung by your feet and beaten with an acoustic guitar.

or

Not posting bogus news/thread titles.

We just want the members to enjoy the forums with out having to worry if its true or not, and getting frustrated. This would also create more work for staff. Thanks for your understanding and help.:wink:

Darn, now I'll just have to create usernames on the Patriots' fanblog and mess with them all day! Go Dolphins. I think we should get as many people as we can from here to create usernames on NE's site and post so many threads that they won't know which way is up.... Sort of like a perpetual drive-by blogging, FIN FAN style!... Just a thought....I'll keep my April Fool's pranks away from here...The Mods didn't say whther it'd be a Six String or a Twelve string, either!! OUCH!!

uh oh. PFT just put up some Dolphin related material on their rumor mill. How many of you want to bet that there will be threads called "Ricky is free to play!" and "Culpepper bashes Childress!"? :lol:

Hopefully everybody reads this thread(or the one I started earlier Friday. :wink: ) and doesn't flip out over these stories.

Hmm, I dunno, this sounds like an April fool's threat to me:wink: So i will now announce that Dan marino has decided to run for president of the United States in 2008 and will send all patriot, jets, and bills fans residing in the U.S. to boot camp where they will become de-brainwashed, come to there senses, and realize that they should have been dolphins fans all along. Well, we can hope anyway :wink:

Just heard from Dan Marino's bother that Dan has been working out and said his knee feels better than it has in 10 years. He said throwing that ball to Clayton at the HOF made him realize he still wants to play. According to his brother Dan is serious about coming back and challenging Dante for the starting position.
If Dan loses out he said he would settle for a backup position just so he could get his ring. NO REALLY......I'm his brother.

With what? If you're talking about Nublar's thread, they're two different threads addressing two different things. His thread is warning everyone to not believe everything they read today. This thread is warning people to not make false threads or they'll get banned.

I came to this thread looking to get some fake news and was seriously dissappointed.

Seriously, there is nothing clever or cute, novel or new, ripe or refreshing about making false statements on April 1. What's the use in reporting Pornstache inked to Standpoint Consultant post for the next three years on April 1?? Nobody will believe it anyway. Gotta do it on April 2!
