Suckers! :rofl:

Here is the story:

I get home around midnight on April 1st and go to check email. As soon as I get to the computer, I see windows of AIM messages sending me 'condolences' for what is happening. I about drop my jaw. I initially thought that the website got hacked and someone put some kind of a crazy official story. I proceed to check my email and see more evidence pointing to this. Finally, I get on the site and realize that Oz is being the ringmaster and having a bit too much fun, so I decide to join in on APRIL FOOLS!

I hope this wasn't too bad of a joke :)

04-01-2004, 09:51 AM
Yeah, okay. :rolleyes: Man, I KNEW THAT ALL ALONG!!!!

No, I didn't. :biggrin:

04-01-2004, 09:55 AM
In truth, AF is doing extremely well right now. Look forward to seeing a lot more content and great new features - lots are in the works!
However, we do first have to move hosting locations, and there have been some delays on that front, as you might have guessed :)

04-01-2004, 10:11 AM
It was not a good joke !!!

I was preparing tons of Pm to my contacts to give them my email adress and inviting them on another place on the web to meet, I was saving all my pics, saving all my texts, ...

I was soooo scared ....

Now, I'm so happy it's not true, I'm an AF-addict and a single day without AF would be a pain.

Long live AF :thumbsup:

04-01-2004, 10:17 AM
I can't believe you! You're trying to hide us the truth: AF is going to die, and you're tying to make us hope it won't, arguing it's just a joke!!!!!! But I know it's true!
Don't steal us our cries! Don't disappoint our despair!

04-01-2004, 10:20 AM
ROFL great one man! good to hear AF is alive and well though. kinda wonder anyone flip out on each other thinking AF will be gone?

04-01-2004, 10:20 AM
I'm glad I didn't fall for it. But it did get me a little worried that it could.

Anyways, if you do need some more donations Igor please let us know. Because I think you now know that a ton of people would donate.

04-01-2004, 10:24 AM
I had a feeling...but.
Oh well, good one.... just wait till next year, igor. We'll get you back :evillol:

04-01-2004, 01:08 PM
Errrrr you dirty rotten bastards! :D Man I'm so gullible......

04-01-2004, 03:04 PM
This was a masterfully concocted "joke", but what about all those gullible saps who read the original post, started to cry, and never found out it was all a joke? They might delete their bookmarks and never come back again... Then what!? :iceslolan

(I'm so relieved though, now that it's over... :biggrin: )

04-01-2004, 03:19 PM
scary thought... that was a dirty april fools joke!! :D

04-01-2004, 03:32 PM
I kinda figured it was a joke..Scale Auto magazine has done some on this scale in the past..but damn I was upset if it was going to be true...the AF model car forum has given me so much elp in the past..i couldn't even think of being without it..lol

good one there..glad to hear its not true.


04-01-2004, 03:49 PM

04-01-2004, 04:23 PM

04-01-2004, 07:03 PM
At first I was like this is the meanest april fools joke ever and then OZ said "no it is not, what kind of an ass hole would I be to joke about that" And then he had me from then on.

I think you've all learned a valuable lesson. I am an asshole.

04-01-2004, 08:14 PM
I had it figured out when the mods' stories didn't match up, so I posted this. But then I got told off by Dave and he scares me, so I edited it.

I get the points for finding the evidence. Anyone else who tries to steal my evidence will get a bilateral arse kicking.

04-01-2004, 08:23 PM

you have a really bad sence of humor :smile:

well at least af isnt going to shut down


04-01-2004, 08:37 PM
well, i'll stay cool-headed and say i was, before i went to sleep, starting to believe this was true... i had nightmares, swear on my life... anyway... good joke because you got me, but a bad one because it scared the shit out of me

04-01-2004, 09:23 PM
Yea I have to say this is probably the most people that have been OWN3D at the same time by the same person. I would have done it too though :evillol:

But I am planning a April fools day joke already for next year to get you guys back. :iceslolan

04-01-2004, 10:19 PM
jackass sobs :nono:

04-01-2004, 11:36 PM
wow, i told you people

04-01-2004, 11:44 PM
Lol, I saw this comming when I read the first post about it :loser: Very impressive that you were able to get most of the forums to believe you :icon16:

04-02-2004, 12:26 AM
well, i'll stay cool-headed and say i was, before i went to sleep, starting to believe this was true... i had nightmares, swear on my life... anyway... good joke because you got me, but a bad one because it scared the shit out of meme too, I couldnt really focus on other shit, I would be so pissed to see af go

04-02-2004, 01:35 AM
AWwww you scare the bejizes out of me!!!!!

04-02-2004, 03:33 AM
Knew it.

04-02-2004, 05:18 AM
haha boy that one was right up there in humour, like only just behind having my arm burned by a soldering iron, and having my head held underwater to see how long i could last. which both happened on april fools. so yea, sorry for not finding it that funny, it was dulled down by how funny the rest of my week was.

04-02-2004, 08:49 AM
Knowing you did that...what kind of shit will you pull for Easter!?!?!?! That could be HORRIFIC! Like saying there wont be a AF Easter Egg Hunt this year...very tradgic.

04-02-2004, 05:43 PM
I can see the easter stunt now... "AF crucified horrible April fools joke... and comes back to life!"
... or not...
