What's been your favorite Aprils Fools prank on BZP?And it's not poll'd because member pranks count too.I loved how they didn't do one that one year and we got part two this year.Also that year I made that topic about certain members being part of that hacking group... lols were had by me, and everyone got mad.

Gotta love the Barbie prank. I had fun with that one. :P The 'Tufi Taking Over BZP' one was kinda lame, I didn't consider it all that amusing.

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
 
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
 
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
 
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
 
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
 
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
 
slipped away...

I guess it´s hard to beat VahkiPower, all later pranks have paled in comparison as it´s hard to do such a big prank. The Barbie fad was a pretty good one, though, as in that case the staff were the pranked. :P-Gata Posted Image

The takeover of BZPower by Tufi was pretty cool that one year. That was... 2009, I believe? I wish I'd been around to see Vahkipower; from the screens I've seen, it was awesome.-ibrow

VahkiPower, or Cookin' With Makuta. XDAnd I quite like my own prank, in which I switched out my own personality for my character Reichenbach.In fact, it's supposed to last the rest of the week, so... I'll get back to that now.

Someday, you're going to need help. Someday, you're going to turn to me, because there's no one else left. And when you do, I will say 'no'. I will look you dead in the eyes and I will say no, because you let her die, David.

I liked the Barbie one, but my favorite had to be the Batman prank. (I don't remember exactly what it was, but members changed their names to Batman-related names. Like Pirate Batman, for example.)

The Staff Civil War was probably the most creative, due to the people that fell for it - but in sheer numbers, I'll never ever forget the outrage over the "removal" of COT and LGD. I fell for that one the longest before I realized that it was April 1st.

When they said they'd delete the LGD and CoT back in 2007. Man, I was so new back then, I fell for it like an acorn to the ground. Interestingly, at the same time they released images for the Karzahni set. I thought THAT was the prank.

I throughly enjoyed the prank where they removed Completely Off Topic and Lego General Discussion, especially when they extended the prank to beyond April Fool's Day. It's too bad so many people got up in arms about it.VahkiPower was also really great. I loved the board skin for that one.

Yesterday was only my second April Fools' Day as a member, so...yeah. I thought last year's Barbie thing was pretty good, though.

I believe that April Fools' Day was my third. I can't remember what was done for '09, I was around for it as a guest, I believe, but not as a member, sadly. =/ Wasn't a movie-name change or something similar to that?

I usually missed the April Fools' Day jokes, as I was always too busy celebrating my BZP anniversary. :P Yes, I am a BZPower "April Fool".I do like every BZPower prank for two reasons; for starters, I tend to never be able to pick favorites, and two I like something new every year I experience them, therefore each one is a favorite.

:kaukau: The removal of CoT and LGD are the only ones that actually stand out to me. I honestly don't remember any pranks. This one was at a time when I only ever posted in CoT, and at the time I felt too guilty about it to consider that the staff was only joking about their reasons for taking the forms away. Of coruse, it helped that it went on for several days and other people began to take it seriously as well. It was a unigue experience.Your Honor,Tyrannosaurus Kraggh

I was around for VahkiPower (which I'll admit...I actually believed. :dunce: I actually didn't even realize it was an April Fool's Joke. I simply thought BZP got a makeover and a new name in celebration of the new '04 sets coming out or whatever.), and I think I've seen like one screenshot of KimPower. I don't remember any of the other ones, though. So I'll say VahkiPower.

The one that lead to a BBCC...because that was the one year the members pranked the staff.For those of you that don't remember/weren't around, we were asked to build...what was it? the cutest Rahi we could? Yeah, I think that was it. Anyhow, it was intended as a prank, but so many entries came in on Day One that the staff turned it into a legit contest. And it became the largest contest in BZP's history that far. (And it was my first BBCC). So we pranked them.
