I've been digging up some of my past trolls. I've read the, and laughed. But the one I'm most proud of...

I'll give you a little background. I came up with the idea around December 04. Bobsqueek, who does some great photoshop, agreed to help me with it. So he got to work. When we got close I gave Ivan a heads-up. He said if I posted it, no one would believe it. So he told Oleg about it, who loved the idea.

Now, I asked Oleg to give Bobsqueek (and myself) credit for the work, but he didn't. No matter. It was still great to see Oleg trolling with my bait. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

He he that suggestion alone could reduce post rate on the forum lately for about 50-60%.

This is actually a good joke, unlike many "serious" posts here where posters make a joke out of themselves.

Next time, when you sit down, make sure the stool post actually has a seat. Obviously the last one is still wedged in there.

Serious posts are given serious attention. Nothing ruins a forum more than people that can't relax and enjoy the company of other people who share their affinity.

So, Supah, relax. And try having a little fun every once in a while.

It was done on the morning of April 1st or as Oleg writes it "first spring day". It was meant to be a humorous joke in the spirit of the day.

Thats not really my style. I like to make people smile and laugh at themselves. Trolling for arguments, well... thats really too easy, considering how fired up some fanatics get about this plane or that.

I know that, I was talking about trolling in general. Its lame stupid and old. Same goes for the constant "OMG oleg when are you going to put the torpedo planes in!" or the poles that serve no possible purpose or people whining that their favorite plane's cockpit should be started from scratch to be included even though they know full well that the deadline has expired.

Actually, it`s quite easy to reel off any nonsense and people will believe it. I hate doing such deceptions as I actually find it belittling, not funny... then again, my friends do say i should visit the local joke shop and buy some humour...

Anyway, I tried one once where I just wrote in an official manner (no pictures, no proof), about how colour didn`t exist until the end of WWII and you`d be surprised how many people fell for it. Others who saw it was obviously a farce became amazingly angry by it, saying how dare I post such rubbish. It was just an experiment.

When I first came on the forums I used to accept everything at face value. Now, thnx to people like Crash, I question just about everything that has no proof, and even that `proof` I will double check before believeing it.

If it sounds weird, strange, too good to be true on the forums/ net... It probably is!

A post by Oleg on April Fool's Day about a ship that looks like a modified Lexington. The only thing that would have shocked me is if someone didn't waste their time with some sort of prank post on that day. My comments had more to do with expending effort on a virtually useless exercise when it could have been better used completing an incomplete product.

I'd have to side with Supah on that one... trolls, especially of the predictable April Fools variety, detract from the usefullness of the forum.

See but I don't even see it as real trolling. Trolling is, at least to me, done with intent to snag some fish and get an argument started. What Crash does is humorous...maybe even satiracle. So I think we're talking about two different things...and when you post in context to the Oleg thread...thats not trolling. Thats an April Fools joke.

So maybe I'm misunderstanding the context of your post because of its proximity to another topic.
