Ummm... What's happened here? Can't Post

I have not visited the board for some time and was surprised by the Main Index page... With all its !!--->Exclamation Marks<---!! ShockedShockedShocked And possible !!--->Hyperbole<---!!!!

What did I miss? Will the main page stay that way? Will there be a poll about whether to have it like that or get the old descriptions back? Just curious... Tongue

Heh...about that.... [In reply to] Can't Post

That was part of our April Fools' Day prank. And then Altaira got swamped by real life before she had a chance to change the descriptions back. She still intends to, as soon as she has a moment to spare. In the meantime, we're still clickbaity.


Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

Ah, OK :) [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for the explanation. I was thinking (and preferring) that the old descriptions would be back sooner or later, but had to ask what it's about when everything looks so... Scandalous.Cool

And as a language geek I must say that "clickbaity" is a great word! Tongue
