    Surprise This April Fools the forum itself played a prank on all of us

    Did you find yourself unable to log in yesterday? A lot of people did. Apparently, the cookie domain setting got changed to the site's IP address rather than "pokemasters.net", which was what the forum used to check if we were logged in.

    Thanks to Kevin, it is fixed now.

    If you have missed the FinnoMasters, feel free to select the Finland style from the themes list. Credit goes to Mikachu for the banner, and I'm really sorry he was among the many people who could not log in to post about it.

    Yep, but now I'm back thanks to you and Kevin. My various Finland-related threads, should they wait for another FinnoMasters prank on 2015?

    I played a prank where I told people online that I decided to become a woman and have a sex change. It worked on some people.

    Helga: So I'm NOT Kate Moss.
    Milo: Kate Moss isn't stuck in a sewer.
    Helga: Gee. I don't know. When you really think about it, is there any sewer bigger than the world of professional modelling?

    Just set my forum display to Finland in solidarity
    so you got some curb appeal
    but can you cook a three-course meal?
    or are you just a present waiting to be
    opened up and parceled out again?

    In Finland theme, I request TPM staff to replace the Pokeballs with one of these options:

    a) snowflakes
    b) Finnish flags
    c)
    d)

    (bear is the national animal of my country)

    EDIT: Or perhaps the best idea would be blue and white pokeballs, I don't know, suggestions are welcome.

    Hehe, well done with the April Fool's joke, Mikachu.

    Although, thankfully, Finnomasters was not as believable as the old Digimasters prank from 2001.

    Ah, Digimasters. I remember that one too. We even had a Digidex. I wasn't a TPM member yet at that point though.
