April fools day is here! Feel free to post any oddities on the SO family here rather than creating 200000 posts about avatars changing to
Unicorns with rainbows in the background.
The irony is that this will probably generate more questions on Meta than the rep recalc.
I hope Google's crawler doesn't associate my unicorn/rainbow avatar with my name in Google Images. :-)
They are just crazy mixed up animals. --Gag Halfrunt
Call me a grumpy old man, but please, MAKE IT STOP!
It wasn't funny 4 years ago when Slashdot did a very similar thing, and it's not funny now.
Oh, and .get off my lawn! :)
It seems it's already activated !
I just thought someone had coded an ingenious method of spamming the site and perhaps farming for answers for other sites (like Quora) when I spotted five questions in a row from users with vaguely suspicious names, one rep and various unicorn icons.
Took a few seconds for the April Fools penny to drop.
I hadn't realised how most internet user names looks suspicious when ones head is at a certain angle.
Also - I want to keep my unicorn!
The only user who think all his Christmases (and Easters) have come at one will be OMG Ponies!
I don't really care about the ponies, but I'm having problems posting comments and answers to Stack Overflow with Firefox 3.6.2. It briefly shows an image of a lolcat and something about a serious error before blanking out and failing to load something; I try refreshing but it doesn't load, and my text gets lost. Sometimes it goes through but most of the time it doesn't; it works perfectly fine every time in Internet Explorer 8. I am using NoScript and Adblock Plus, but I've never had this problem until today.
It's been here for 9 hours and 46 minutes already... slow much?
Anyway. I see ponies! Everywhere! (actually apparently they're unicorns)
