The Oasis

LYAT is the cool place to hang out. You can find most of the cool people there. In LYAT you can just chill and do whatever and totally relax. "Take it easy" is the LYAT motto, for example, that's how laid back it is there. Show up if you want to have a good time. Another good reason to show up is if you want to hang out with friends.

The Oasis

Post by Big Boss (?) » Mon Apr 01, 2013 11:26 am

If you want to post normally about things, use this this thread. Please don't shitpost in this thread. If you do, you'll be probated. You've been warned. :skeletor:

Why is LYAT the April Fool's joke?

Because we (specifically, me and Cosmo) thought it would be funny and the mods agreed. Usually on April 1st we transform the forum into something entirely different, a tradition we started with the Jefferson Starship. It's the off-season, so there usually isn't much going on anyway.

Why can't I access the rest of the forum?

We had to override the smiley list as well as the themes and some other settings that affect the entirety of the forum.. The rest of the forums would be unusable.

I hate this!

I'm sorry if this has caused anyone grief. People are here to (generally) have a good time and so far people have done right by the spirit of the gag. People who have taken the joke too far have been given a vacation for a day. The forums will be opened back up around 8 PM tonight. If you want a reprieve from the sea of LYAT, this thread's your place.

Help! I Just registered today!

How... unlucky of you. But don't worry, things will be back to normal soon. Join in on the fun!

This sucks, bring back the Jefferson Starship.

While great, that gag only works once.

I honestly think once a year is enough. I do like the emoticons, though. :skeletor:

I think this kind of shitposting is fun, for a day. It would get really old if it lasted any longer, but for a single day, it's fine.

edit: do not make this a subforum on the regular forums.

Look, dude, the vast majority of us are having hella fun today. I think you can take a day off from ponygoons and go like... do something else until is blows over, instead of sticking around and being grumpy about it. It'll be done by tonight, just chill until then.

You are planning on archiving this subforum, right? I'd imagine it'd be fun to re-read all this shit a while later. I mean, we have 7000 or so posts here already, would be a shame to waste all of it.

e: I've been having fun reading, and I have to admit being able to shitpost for a day without any consequences, without having to consider if I'm making a good post has kinda helped lower the ceiling for me personally. I'd imagine I'm probably going to post more from now on, since this shitpost extravaganza just makes me feel more like a part of the community, rather than the occasional poster who mostly lurks.

It's weird, but it's true. I know this sounds extremely stupid, but fuck it, wanted to mention that something good came out of this, at least.

Yeah, this has definitely been fun. It should be a subforum that is only open on random days though. Don't want things being too shitpost-y around here. Just lock it down and keep it readable in its "off-season".

Totally agreed. It's fun as a one time crazy thing, but tomorrow we need to be able to wake up and clean up the broken glass and plastic cups and move on with life. If it were permanent you'd end up driving a rift right down the middle of the forum with people who love it on one side and people who hate it on the other. It's already starting today. I don't think there will be any permanent damage from just one day of this, but anything more would be begging for trouble. The last thing we want is two territorial groups and some sort of :gb2gps: and :gb2lyat: icons.

Yeah, this sort of thing is actually a giant drama magnet. One day is fine, because it's understood that it's April Fools' and nothing has to be taken seriously, but more than that would be a horrible mistake.

So, is this going to be an all day thing or what? While I'm fine with the shitposting and what not, it's really just not my cup of tea so until normal forum activity resumes I think I'll actually get some college work done well ahead of schedule for once.

I agree, though I think some posts will read differently since Image will revert to whatever emoticon code was used.

I would say that I've enjoyed being able to cut loose for a day as well, but am curious when normal service is going to be restored.

I agree it's good to kind of get this out of our systems for a day.

It's like getting crazy drunk on the weekend with some work buddies, and then when monday rolls around you're all hungover, exchanging awkward glances and never speaking about it again.

Except, you know, funner.

I think Jefferson Starship may have been the April 1st, 2011 prank, which would be before you registered. I forget what happened last year. :pinkieshrug: (Or maybe I'm just completely misremembering everything again).

I think the reason quick reply wasn't around before is because we want to encourage people to write out longer posts instead of just tossing whatever they can in the box.
