April Fools

For those of you who noticed our April Fool's joke on the forums this year, hope you enjoyed it. In case anyone missed it, each avatar had a 20% chance of being replaced with either a goofy-looking Krang or a dancing Shredder every time a thread or profile was viewed.

I had mine replaced for a while... I thought one of the mods was targeting me or something, but then I refreshed and was fine, checked the date, and figured what was amok.

It took me until I noticed like 7 people had the same avatar until I realized what was going on. I thought it was pretty funny.

I only saw one person with the dancing Shredder, so I thought nothing of it aside from "their old avatar was more fitting". What did the Krang one look like?

Unfortunately I missed it - real life has a bad habit of coming in my way too often

But those two are actually nice - I like the crazy Krang. He has a certain.... kind of charm

Ssh.

It's always fun to do a little something for April Fools. Good job setting this up, Krang.

lol yeah it took me a minute to figure out what was going on...

My first thread I had the krang pic
I refreshed it and got my normal pic back
Went to another page and got the dancing shredder
I checked my UserCP and everything was ok.
I then went to another thread and saw 2 or 3 people with the same dancing shredder...then I knew...

Good one guys!

I totally fell for it and even PMed Krang about it.

I tought that a member had gone berserk and started to tear the place apart. Starting with the avatars.

It made sense at the time.

I had the Krang avatar. First I thought that someone hacked my login but after browsing the forum I eventually got it.

Was that Shredder head replacing an image of Mr.Bean by any chance?

The original GIF had Bill Clinton's head on there. I don't remember where it was originally from since I both found the GIF and edited it into Shredder many years ago, but the original could have been edited itself from a Mr. Bean GIF if you've seen one like it.
