    Right, time to turn this off as the automatic; as always, it's available as a cheat if you really want it. If you didn't realise already, it's an april fools joke. :P

    For those that did not get it, type ITSNOUSE into the forum to toggle it on or off. (Type it multiple times for a bit of fun. :P)

    Hey all; sorry about all the mix-ups on Sunday with the domain being parked and whatnot, but we were moving things between servers to bring about a Better Retro Experience™ for you all.

    One of these Initiatives was giving the forum a new set of updates, hence why things were a bit flaky for a while with the forums specifically. However all the changes are now complete, the scripts have been finalised and fixed, and we hope you all enjoy your new forum experience that will, hopefully, be an improvement for everyone.

    Please, if you find any major issues, let us know immediately in this topic.

    (For those of you who never like change, it's no use complaining.)

    Wow. such update. very fast. much speed. wow.

    Clever. very clever. least the music is pleasant, where did you guys find this mix?

    And I'm guessing the same as every year, in order to disable it look at the page's source code?

    Thanks. :U I made it myself, a few years ago.

    Of course; I even gave a hint in the first post.

    Mind giving us a link to download it? Retro always has great remixes for this time of year. still waiting on last years too :(.

    I'll look in the later morning, as I should be sleeping but I saw in the AFD topic that you said that you have a new toggle option set up as well, thanks for that :).

    I knew what was coming, but goddammit Cinossu. My sides. And the disabling code indicator is fucking hilarious too.

    Never change, Cinossu. Never change. :v:

    If you wanted to do an April Fools joke, you could've just put bandages all over the site. Then you'd get Sonic Retro Boom.

    I really can't see why anyone could complain about the new features, you really have brought forward some new functionality that more websites should deliver.
    No 's' in the first post... Am I seeing it wrong or was it intentional?

    I was particularly impressed with how it worked on my mobile phone. These forum holiday features tend to not do that.

    Indeed. When active, it rendered the forums unusable on my mobile actually (because it's old and clunky); it kept completely freezing on the NOW LOADING screen, haha.

    It was a brilliant prank as usual, really good stuff.

    I must have typed in ITSNOUSE at least several times, (Actually triggered it twice more typing this post!) that was a solid April Fools joke for me. I'm still extracting a laugh seeing a derpy Silver pop up out of different corners of the screen, and that catchy remix is staying apart of my playlist.
