    You can call me all you you want but holding a grudge? That's childish and I'm the editor in the OP wikia and I'm not really fond of AP wikia so I don't care anymore. I was never satified with my editing rank. I'll reather be a senior member but that would be a long time to reach that goal.

    Haha, kudos on the fake account, Ocean & Carly! The Griffin character was genius, and this whole fiasco proved decently entertaining. You guys rock!

    So it wasn't an inexperienced admin getting carried away and starting the joke too soon. That's even more retarded than I thought, though Griffith's brand of humor isn't that different from what you'd expect from Ocean I guess. Good show guys, good show. Heeheehee.

    Thank God this cursed day has ended and I have 1 year of tranquility now.

    I enjoyed the prank. It was fun seeing the pain and agony of some of the other members who fell for it.

    On another note, how bout one more Paint comic for the road Zephos?

    I've forgiven you guys.

    So Griffin wasn't just one person?

    Good idea in theory but....

    Ocean, can I be the prank organizer next year or something? It's ok if you say no now and PM me later saying yes to fool everyone. Or maybe this is reverse psycology to make everyone think that!

    Anyways, definatly could have gone much better. What you should have done was made a special rank that looks to everyone else like someone is banned, but they just arn't allowed to post, but can view the forums.

    Why do you want to do that so badly? .o

    Anyway, I began to feel sorry for Griffin because I thought he was kinda used by you guys, but now that I know it was you all along.... I don't feel sorry at all ^^

    You deserved it :P

    i love you guys. now i really do

    i thought that griffin was ocean himself because being in charge of such a site you can't easily trust anyone you only know through the internet. whatever whatever, my friend could have hacked the site. but he was too lazy at that day when i asked him to do so and i wasn't worried either. he told me that he would have tried to write a brudeforce which would have taken a lot of time though. i wonder if that would have worked?i wanted to pm ocean to find out if that really wasn't a joke and then ask for permission to hack

    So there was no Griffin? How the hell did I not figure that out? I guess it's because that account posted before all this happened...

    But whatever, you got me good. Whoever was in on this had better run, before the bitching starts.

    My problem with this whole fiasco wasn't the joke itself. Far from it, because I initially enjoyed the 'no rules for a change' factor, though it's novelty disappeared relatively quickly.

    MY problem with this was how the admins/mods handled the aftermath. As soon as the norm was restored, the staff (maybe because of fear of being hated by the general AP community or some other reason I don't know) promptly stated that it was meant as an AF joke but....wait for it.... Griffin accelerated and expanded on the original plan without consulting with the other staff members, thereby creating the perfect scapegoat for this mess, one at which members who were less than impressed could vilify and aim whatever negative feeling/thought/post? at; as witnessed by the number of people who readily forgave the other admins/mods but still harboured different levels of hate/dislike for Griffin (myself included).

    At this point the admins/mods made no effort to associate themselves with Griffin besides stating that he also is a member of staff, leading us to believe he was a totally separate entity that screwed up. However, several days later, when people had calmed down and most started to see the funny side of this, the staff come with the "oh btw, we kinda forgot to tell you one other thing. Griffin wasn't some separate person that screwed up the plan and pissed so many people off, but was some account all us staff members used for the joke. Sorry looolzzz". This in my opinion was a really cowardly move by the staff. I know I don't speak for anyone else but if they had come out and said yes, it was us to blame/hate/whatever, then I would have taken this on the chin and would've just let the whole thing fly (like I had already done, before this new info came to light). Because of this, admin/mods (in particular ocean) that I had held in such high esteem, have totally lost my confidence, trust and respect. Again, I don't speak for anyone else, just myself.

    Anyway.....[/end of rant].
    Rather live a coward than die a man.

    "Since I can't actually type, I think I'll eat Ginny's laptop keys instead."

    Unfortunately because of my new job, I wasn't around as much for the planning. But I was laughing my ass off watching, I wish it had lasted longer (and had been better organized/timed. I do understand people's concerns and frustrations about it.) ocean, the funny thing is, if my bird could actually take over an internet forum, that is exactly how I think he would have done it.

    Luckily for teh_intarwebz, he doesn't have opposable thumbs.

    Normally, I'd be angry that you guys decided to lie in order to cover up a mistake, which is something I dislike to the extreme, but I appreciate the fact that you decided to tell us the truth though a bit late.
