Default Sure hope this is an intentional April Fool's prank

I sure hope this is an intentional April Fool's prank! If so, it sure had me going for a second!

And if this is someone hacking the site instead . . . grrrrrr

It's original, I'll give it that and I was the same, reading a post then wham, greenville. Then I watched as the threads got renamed, lol. Too neat to be hackers, I realised that, as they'd just shut the place down rather than provide us with something this funny.

Now what X-Box game do I need to like in order to find the SH3 Mods Workshop anyone? I seriously can't find it now...
