Discussion in 'Announcements' started by Tony, Mar 31, 2021.
Did the mod got fooled so hard last year that he/she had to made an announcement for it~?
??? They do this every year. The april fools stuff is trash and it's good they make an effort to stay on top of it.
If it is followed by a link to the real chapter, I would not mind. But this time of year is annoying.
lol, it’s like an annual thread. i get the feels that @Tony just repeatedly copy and paste the bulk of the post every year
It wouldn't be such a problem if it just continued to a real chapter or had a plain link to the real deal. Sadly either the process to get to the real thing requires some hidden arcane password or the tl wasted all their time and effort on making a fake chapter instead of tling a real one.
As someone said, it was funny once or twice but it has become an atrocious habit.
A certain snake pressured him into it. Obligated April Fool's thread. Newbie groups beware.
Gullible is written on the ceiling.
My anti-bot April Fool's release link got replaced on NU even though I had the real chapter's link at the bottom of the page... I purposely didn't even tag the real release post, too
I guess the mods don't even tolerate those...
Is there a place to find a list of the removed joke chapters? Personally I feel like reading some good old fashioned silliness.
You could always ask if @runsing could make a thread listing them or something~
People should also share past amazing pranks. Spread the joy!
Huh, is it just me or are there not that many April fools chapters this year?
Then again I’ve not read as many new chapters as for past April fools this time
Ha, i just 'accidentally' read 'return of the frozen player' webtoon and i was like hey what's going on, till i reached the title page and they blotted out Frozen and wrote BL. I was like 'oh...'
Same despite having been in this community for years I never expected it to spread to the manga section for some reason.

I think it shows that more people are getting into 'scanlations' and it's getting easier to edit the texts. (not to mention the more playful younger generation is now getting on the bandwagon with the uwu and boomer being thrown around everywhere).
Mangas have had it since before the novel community, I believe.
I remember a few years back that MangaUpdates made an announcement near April Fools saying that anyone that tried adding a fake release to the site would get perma banned for one.
I read a chapter with googly eyes.
Personally, I try to hunker down and avoid the internet on April fools, but it's two hours to midnight and have broken protocol to comment. The flesh is weak.
that's where it started, way back before NU lol. god some of those where funny too ...
I remember that, and If I remember correctly it was because more then 3/4 of the releases the year before where Fool drops and some got nasty too
I joined NU around late 2015 so I’m not sure about before but there’s been April fools pranks since at least 2016 I believe (6 years worth now). Also it was chaos then since nobody knew how to deal with fake releases lol
How have I not seen this lol. Which mangas were these and were there any popular ones? Or maybe the fake releases just weren’t uploaded to the site I used
*To clarify I’m referring to April fools pranks done by scanlation teams/translators rather than those done by the original creators or companies
