    April Foolage


    Linguica

    Well, that was fun, and I didn't get any heated complaints like last year when Doomworld sported animated hamsters and a blaring, looping, unstoppable WAV file. I didn't get as many letters as I would have hoped, but we got a few. There were the frantic:

    what the fuck happened to your beautiful web page!!!!!!!! it is now an exact clone of doomnation.com but doomnation SUCKS!!!!!!! what happened??? are you guys closed forever??????????

    And the obvious:

    Doomnation.com goes to doomworld's page and doomworld.com goes to doomnation's page.

    If you missed all the fun, here's yesterday's front page.

    I was confused for a good minute or two. Sure, I knew there was a prank immediately, but it took me a little bit to say "gee, maybe I should try typing 'www.doomnation.com'." I still dig it (better than the PlanetQuake prank). The PQ LvL prank was pretty good too, just because it was still kinda fun.

    Doomnation does not suck. I used to say that but then I actually stopped being so dumb and visited it. Both DW and DN hold their own. And plus, how can you hate Cybs sense of humor. Anyways, that april fools joke was pretty funny, especially drunk looking for messed up parts. Bye then.

    Anyway, I just feel more comfortable with trusty old doomworld, its more serious and doesnt have a joke in nearly every news post... (it does sometimes, but the jokes are actually funny, which makes a large difference) Although I must admit, Doomnation has a much prettier layout, but I prefer the simple stuff (why do you think im still playing doom?)

    Before the pictures loaded up and I saw their outlines, I thought for a moment that Doomworld had a site design. Then I remembered what day it was.

    If DN can get the forums back up again it'd kick arse. People that never went there always said it was just flames but that was total bullshit.

    Point your mouse at the main title picture of Doomworld and look what things pop up. Then, refresh or reload and point to it again. Or just turn off images and look at the alt text.

    ... I've been complaining about that for months! ... Then again, who am I??

    Seriously, I couldn't bring myself to make a serious complaint about that ugly thing. I'm too scared. :O

    I went to a number of different sites yesterday, and by the time I got to DOOMWORLD I was totally *@~#ed off with shit jokes and April fool stuff, especially as, when I got to the site, it was almost April 2 here. My usual habit is to load DOOMWORLD, have a look at any new links and then, once finished, go to DOOMNATION. I must have loaded DOOMWORLD 3 times at least before checking the address bar (Doh!) and realising I wasn't doing things in the wrong order and my favorites menu wasn't somehow screwed. Well done, you got me, and even after all the other stuff I saw that had pissed me off, yours was genuinely funny. Yup I actually sat and laughed at what an arse I had been. Good one.

    I'd have to agree that DW is more serious. That's not a bad thing for DN though! Variety is the spice of life! ;)

    Doomnation never got so good... Doomworld should be more serious...

    I happen to like Doomworld and Doomnation. The only problems I see are that one site will often post a news item at least a day before the other. Both have this affliction.

    For a moment I thought that Doomworld had been taken over by Doomnation.

    The headquarters are taken over by the nation, the nation is taken over by the world, and little old mad professor with his test tubes, and his hunchback, and his electrical monster, in his secret hideout shack, plans to take over the world!!

    Mawwaaahahhahahahahaaaaaaaa!! :D
