April Fools Round Up

Postby Triadian » Sun Apr 01, 2012 6:23 pm

So lets sort the truth from the facts about april fools

Was the site upside down due to april fools ?
YES - some of you hated it some of you saw the funny side

Was this "Alpha Client Imminent" an april fool ?
Yes but no, it was also a test to find out whether or not people would still do as we ask even if they thought it was supposed to be like that, for example what is a bug and what isnt ??? let us know regardless its upto us to decide not you :P

So are you giving out 3 alpha keys ?
Yes we were - only 2 managed to fulfill the criteria though,

So will there be a alpha client out today ?
alas no
We are in the final stages of preparing the alpha server and client. hopefully for deployment around mid-day
was an april fool

Can i buy a alpha key if i have 1000 ?
sure you can there are 3 in the shop

Did you give away 1,000 points to people who replied
we gave away 2 sets of 1,000 for posters before 12am ( during the april fools period )
we however denied an entry that came after 12am ( when the site returned to normal )

But meh. Fine. I'll try and get 1000 points... somehow. >_>

And you had to do it when it was upside down so it was nearly impossible to read. Oh well, I'm sure I'd be able to get 900 points and buy one of them before anyone else... or rather not, but meh. :/

indeed, some bugs are hard to spot, we are after those people looking to put up with annoyances regardless and still find those bugs/information we need.

Ah, tricky, tricky... A way of seeing if people are willing to put a little extra effort in to find out what they must do. Evil, but smart.

I would have made it go on for the entire day though, if only to give people who had to go to work or something after sleeping a chance. But regardless, I have to admire your strategy there lol.

So, just to be sure... this Alpha beta is to be ready at an indeterminate time in the future? Or do you know when it'd be, or is it just for whenever you decide?

we still have no start date to announce as yet,

however both Tony and DOTDOTDOT have tickets to it when it stars.

they wont do anything at the moment - so they should just hang onto them. or sell/give them away. when the time comes we will explain how to turn them into keys and unlock the client downloads etc

When you say you, you mean Tony and not the person who asked the question you were replying to, i.e. me, correct?

Oh well, I'm sure to be able to beat other people to 1000 points.

... Speaking of which, since you only gave two keys right now, were you going to sell the third key as well in the store? Because beforehand you would have had 6 testers, and now you'd have 5. Which may hurt you. Maybe.

thanks for another mistake spot - im gonna stop answering and goto sleep soon :P

i put 3 tickets in the shop for sale at 1,000 each.
dotdotdot and tony were given 1,000 for playing the hidden quest of today. they both i assume bought a ticket with their winnings.
which would leave 1 ticket in the shop, for the first buyer to get it. my heads not on right to know about the 5 or 6 testers maths problem you showed...

was only ever 3 tickets - could only of ever been 3 winners....
