Due to a few requests, i've set up the April Fools thread in it's own special forum so that it can be viewed in the style it was presented.

Basically just for those who missed it and still wanted to see it.

The link is here --> http://www.rodsnsods.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=12891

As an explanation to the content, you'll find it's all relevant and truthful as explained below :tup:

It took me ages to get this worded right :D

It's a bit gutting to have to do this but ...
[That's the truth cos I knew it'd shock]

... ever felt that something needed to be done but you couldn't put your finger on exactly what to change ?
[Struggling to think what to do over the last couple of months]
Ever come to the conclusion that you've bitten off more than you can chew ??
[Could I really get the change into place without being sussed straight away]

After spending plenty of time looking at my current situation and personal circumstances I felt that something DID need to change and now was/is the only real opportunity I had.
[I'd got the time and the skills along with 1st April being the only day to do it on]

It is with that in mind that i'm now posting this.
[Gotta drag you in]

Firstly, I'd like to say what an absolutely brilliant year this has been. I've made some great friends and will no doubt carry on doing so throughout the years.
[100% true and I had no doubts it'd carry on ;)]

Secondly,

Sometimes things can turn out far better than you could have ever imagined and with that comes an equally increased responsibility.
[Damn right, the bigger the site the bigger the prank needed to be]
Knowing when the time is right to do certain things is also part of that responsibility.
[i.e. make sure I got it on the 1st not the 31st or something saft]
I've done the best I can but i've reached my limit. Something was needed to 'better' what has already been done. I've spent the last few weeks thinking this through and felt that this was the only route available. As such I've also spent recent times planning and working late into the night to make this possible and put it into place.
[done the best ... = God knows what to do next time. Needed to better = Beat pranks i've done before. Only route = it's the only one I thought you'd fall for. Spent time ... = you bet I bloody did]

It's been really difficult to find a way to word this without it turning into mindless drivel so without going in to too much detail i'm guessing that what you see before you now is quite self explanatory.
[Exactly what it says on the tin. Didn't want to bore you and make it unconvincing]

I wish you all the best and hope you continue to enjoy things as if nothing has changed :tup:
[After all, it hadn't had it ? :D]

I'm signing off for a while now.
[So I can sit back and watch the catches :D]

Si,
There you go, there was method behind it all :lol:

Don't know about you guys but i've had a great day :tup:

Cheers for not slamming the door :tup:

BTW, has anyone seen Bob (NoJive55) ?? Don't think i've seen him since he left early this morning :lol:

I just got in from shopping and read that "April fools joke". I thought NO it cant be. Sharons asking me what do I want for dinner. I'm telling her "Nothing, some things happened" She starts shouting "What do you mean nothing" She got louder. Then I read that it's all a "joke" I didn't realise [email protected] meant that much to me. God I'm sad.

A spectacular success Si, logged on first thing this morning, as usual and thought I'd hit the wrong link, went back out, back in then saw your post......was just sitting, shaking my head and feeling like someone had stolen all my toys on the same day, when my eyes strayed to the top of your post and the big 1st April just winded me.....
It took me a good 5 minutes before I could even type my post, was laughing so hard.....
I've commented in several places on this, but basically it still comes back to something I've been saying since just after I got to the darkside (thanks Dave...)
YOU THE MAN :tup::tup::tup::tup::tup:

Bob….:tup:
:D :D

I saw you were one of the first online. Thought you'd have twigged it straight away then you disappeared. I was grinning in the mods area when you posted :D

I wouldn't worry about the hacking Bob. We're well protected and been doing this stuff for years :tup:

I'm capable enough myself but I've (we've) got the benefit and security of my Bro as well who's knowledge & experience outshines mine tenfold :tup:
