I got the old site too, when i entered this morning ^_^ . I was like ''huh, that's strange, maybe they decided to bring it back?''. Then it returned back to normal. Just now i realized that i was an April fool's joke.

All that happened for me was I was logged out when I came on site, never saw the old one or anything like that.
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

I turned it off in response to some users having usability issues with the site. No idea what was going on there.

You can have my replacement (but you'll probably need to refresh before you see it). Guaranteed no usability issues :wink:

With some more whitespace so the avatars sit a bit more freely that'd actually look pretty cool. Can we keep it?

That was the original gag, another "unexpected front page" -- but this year's somehow caused problems with ad-blockers, so it got switched off early.

It's really nice that it worked perfectly fine for me then! I was really surprised. It caught me off guard. The feels, seeing the old forum again, ah...

Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996
