In case you hadn’t guessed – rest assured, yesterday’s “Mega Fighting Bots Help Blog” tomfoolery was all part of an April Fool’s prank thrown together by the PHB team. Did we fool you?
We loved Gamer Guy on the Creators’ Blog and decided to bring a taste of his atrocious spelling and grammar (not to mention his obsession with Mocktropica’s Mega Fighting Bots) over here to the PHB, and what better way than on the Day of Jokes? 😀
So in addition to a typo-ridden post, the comments section of said post was also flooded with both Mocktropicans standing by Poptropica’s side, as well as elite gamers espousing their favorite game, which of course can only be Mega Fighting Bots. I mean, kicking bots all day long? That’s the dream!
Several of the PHB authors were commenting as “Gamer Guy”, and we did our best to answer most of your comments, which we hope kept you entertained! 😆 Also, Blake made a post encouraging Gamer Guy’s arrival and admonishing all the haters, because, well, GG may have offended a few n00bs.
Plus, we’re not sure how many of you noticed, but we also fixed up a brand-new About page (as mentioned in GG’s post) to introduce ourselves as pro gamers (check it out!). 😉 And did you see Gamer Guy’s Gravatar profile?
And as you probably saw, we added a header for the MFBHB, changed to an MFB background, and turned the theme color gold to match it. Did you like the change? Not to worry, we’ve reverted back to the regular PHB graphics and are back to typing with proper grammar. 😛
We hope the prank didn’t scare you too badly!
love and robots from the gamer guys & girls!
