    Is it safe to assume these random post buttons are somehow related to to-days date April 1st?

    Didn't notice until now. But yeah, I think so. The button I just clicked on to reply was labeled "Congratulate"! :D

    Except for the fact that the days almost done, and it would appear that it went almost unnoticed.

    True, perhaps the staff didn't want it to be too invasive. I've only encountered a few odd buttons through the entire day. Still, it was a genius prank :)

    I wonder if our forum rank played a part in the frequency at which we were able to see the odd buttons.

    All front page articles should have this one permanently.

    I liked the "bellyache" button when replying to certain members yesterday.

    Some members noticed it and posted here yesterday morning. :)

    You can turn it back on for the next day if you like by selecting the April 1 style at the bottom of the page.

    I didn't notice yesterday, but then wasn't on here much yesterday.

    This is too funny!

    all buttons I had were related to winning something or taking part in a contest. This would imply that I did so much posts that the internal logic of this April fools thing would see my posts as useless (quantity over quality) and see me as a poster who posted a hundreds of posts a day. In fact I haven't been here a while and didn't have that much posts a day, that this would have been justified.

    I assumed, that there was a certain contest, I couldn't - and it made me think of that someone had hacked the forum to add stuff, where you can win something, to get people clicking a hidden link with the button. (I mean it has happened once, that all passwords leaked).

    It was only left up for the additional day after April 1 and is gone now.
