Heh, ive been watching this unfold for the last half hour. First the banner, then the forum logo, then the green text, now all the forums are being renamed.

Either Subsim's being hacked, or Neals going out of his way for an april fools gag.

Yay, April Fools Jokes...

Prehaps if I were in a better mood, I might also find this funny, but it is not to be.

This day just continues to find more, and varied, ways to piss me off.

(sorry to be a cranky crumudgeon, but so it goes)

New logo up top. It's being hotlinked from site in brazil.

Makes me wonder if this is a hack. As so far, everythings been changed pretty neatly, so yeah... looks like a gag. Espeically when you consider the subforums haven't been renamed, just the parent ones. But the hotlink makes me wonder, thats not as clean and neat.

Odds are, its just a gag though. If someone really was hacking it, they'd have trashed the forum and made it unuseable.

April 1st gag, definatly. The SH5 german forum was renamed..... in german. A hacker wouldn't be so careful about things.

HAH, that settles it.

The logo up top has changed address.
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/xbox360.jpg

Neals no longer hotlinking it.

Did i mention i work for an internet security and filtering corp? I notice these things.

EDIT:
I have to say, Neal, you should have done this at like... O'Dark 30 when hardly anyones online. It would have had a much greater impact, instead of many users online watching the transformation play by play. You kinda let the cat outta the bag to the observant.
