Socoder -> Off Topic -> Stealth's April Fools Gag

Page : 1 2 Next

well, i just got done talking to jay, and he is talking about closing the site. from what i know, phoenix's hosting is about to expire, and socoder will need to find a new home. and jay told me because the site is lacking hardly any traffic that the site might just close down.

i tryed talking him out of it but he wouldnt change his mind.

but he suggested that we all stick together when we go looking for a new forum. and like i told TheMadProff, this isnt a april fool joke.

this all really sucks, because i like socoder and i dont want to see it go down. everyone should try to convience jay otherwise, and jay, dont do it! PLEASE dont do it.

Quit posting and try Google.

Please,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please ,please don't close Socoder. We all like it here, things are developing, the Wednesday workshops are storming along, there is the mudchat, blogs, and even if its becoming less of a coding forum, its still a place we can talk about coding, but a social place aswell. Please, keep it up.

(But if you really must take it down, can i host it somewhere else... (though seriously, please don't))

Is this true Jay?
Sun, 01 Apr 2007, 16:12
I'd be willing to host it... I have plenty of free space and a database. PM me if you're interested... I can hopefully also set you guys up with full access if it's set up as a subdomain.

Sun, 01 Apr 2007, 16:22
Afraid so. I will get back with everyone later on this.
Sun, 01 Apr 2007, 16:24
that sucks big time
Sun, 01 Apr 2007, 16:37
I'll host it if you're not just fooling with us.

As long as Servage think it's mine, and I'm not just hosting you for free otherwise they might get me on the TOS part

(woops, just saw Erby's comment. Go with him if it's better on the legal side. I'd be sorta toeing the line otherwise - as long as I don't charge you, you should be fine though)

hmm. that would work

I'm still finding this unbelievable - you know April fools ends at noon, which is over where you live Jay

I'm still hoping for a midnight "fooled ya" in 15 minutes.

power mousey

I like Socoder a lot!! true
a Home away from Home.

true, its people choices and decisions!
but, if more people would get off their
asses and sour dispositions and be more open,initiatory, welcoming we'd probably have more of a family and friendly
As more as more interaction and more traffic.
You can't expect,assume nor rely on just a few
people to keep this place going, liven it up,
and be friendly and friendshipwise.
Sometimes...you have to take the initiative yourself.
To talk, to ask, to share, and to listen. Not everything
can be placed on a silver platter for you.

I'm sad and sorry that I have forseen this day.
I didn't expect it to last this long, anyway.
With that, I'm suprised and happy for it being kept up
this long.

I'm Pissed off!!

and serious

Shouldn't April Fools be done before 12pm? You were way too late, Stealthy!


Hey, hands up who thinks I should ban Stealth for logging in + posting as me?

Couldn't the site go back to oscarnet?

Hahaha... very runny Stealth and MadProff. But there were so many flaws!!!

Keep It Simple, Shroom!

(I thought stealth was telling the truth)


I asked him if it was an April fool on the Mudchat...

I was actually expecting a "blitzcoder reopens!" fools but I guess that would've been too obvious

[Laughing uncontrollably] Jayankai? 0 badges? That was a good trick, people. A very good one. [/Laughing uncontrollably]

I was reading this topic again and I saw 0 badges and thought, "what the heck? that's not right."

There are 10 kinds of people in this world -

May I say, Just for the record.
This site's not dying.

We may not have the largest group of visitors in the world, but we do have at least 20 regulars who log in each and every day, and that counts as something.

It makes me proud to think that you all stuck with me, even when it all looked incredibly pear shaped.


I mean, seriously, WTF were they thinking!?!

It isn't funny...

But he is not alone.

Just relax... sometimes there's no need to argue.
