It is fun! And it would be way more fun if it were in 3D. [In reply to] Can't Post

In fact, I think it is in 3D. Let me rummage around for some glasses and try them out.

woah! When you put these things on, the whole WORLD looks like 3D! This is so freakin cool!

No, it's so far from fun you can get. [In reply to] Can't Post

This means a lot to people as myself, I check the site all the times for news about it, and when this came up, I believed it, believe it or not. Which had been so awaited.

And it all comes down to being a very low so called "joke" which serves no purpose whatsoever.

How fun is that?

"no purpose whatsoever" [In reply to] Can't Post

it has purpose. It's an April Fool's joke. That is it's purpose.

I suggest you find something else to do today if you aren't up for the jokes because I'm hoping they aren't over.

Look. I feel for TORn's joke one year too. When I realized it was an April Fool's Joke. I laughed. The ability to laugh at one's self and to laugh with others is a blessing. Embrace it. :-)

Actually macfalk [In reply to] Can't Post

you should have been here last year when Cal messed around with all our locations. So many of us found ourselves back as registered users and then we suddenly got transported to Potter-ville. Must admit I was a wee bit dirty at only being in the Ministry of Magic, would much preferred being in Dumbledores Army Laugh

But as Magpie said, it's a tradition here on TORn, there's always something crazy going on on April 1st. Best advice I can give you, is trust nothing you read or see today Wink

Don't think there should be multiple Mrs. Weasleys running around. That's just weird.

Yes, that's a problem with global changes.

How about "Hagrid's Hut" (or whatever his house is called)? He has to keep track of little beasties, too! Wink

I think the joke that got the most reaction [In reply to] Can't Post

was news that New Line was buying TORN. Boy were there some worried and annoyed people on the discussion boards that day! :D

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Oh well [In reply to] Can't Post

just imagine it's the Ministry under Kingsley, not Fudge Wink And still better than Slytherin.

Hach, that's so much fun. I should be in bed already (it's 11.15 pm here), but I had to have a look and now I have too much fun here right now!

Btw, if I remember correctly, that was Altaira, not Cal. And it's great she did it again. (I guess it's you, Altaira?)

I do not suffer from LotR obsession - I enjoy every minute of it.
