April Fools

This morning around server update time there was a major security issue which mistakenly gave everyone access to the moderator's control panel in the game. There was a total of 3,129 moderator actions that took place throughout the night with most coming from the users Blacky performing 393 mod actions and TrotskysRevenge who performed 10 mod actions. We have patched up the security breaches and are preparing to file litigation against those responsible for the moderator actions and resulting damages. To everyone who messaged me throughout the night (33 emails, 42 in game private messages, 24 forum private messages, and pages and pages of bug reports) all of your reports are appreciated and your messages will be used as evidence in court. We would also like to point out that it's April Fools Day. For those who missed it here's a screenshot:

It seems like this prank backfired on the moderation staff because all of our inboxes are freaking swamped right now. Though it is good to know that there are some really honest people out there on the Internets. (excluding Blacky and TrotskysRevenge of course) The mod control panel was completely fake but the spy worm is totally real and we use it to spy on the player base all the time. You should see what Sword of Estel looks and sounds like when she eats popcorn in front of her computer. (Ok, I'm kidding again. We're not secretly listening in on your every move.)

We also had a little fun with one of our moderators Philothoes who decided that this year he and some of the other mods were going to play a little prank on me. He started this big argument with some of our other moderators several days ago and the plan was for him and the others on the mod team to resign on April 1st which was totally suppose to give me a brain aneurysm or something I guess. Problem was I saw right through their shenanigans from the start thanks to Evenstar who folded under just the slightest amount of questioning and so together we preempted their plans yesterday by firing Philothoes and warning the mod team that such in-fighting will not be tolerated. Many frantic text messages among the mod staff and an 800 word count email from Philothoes resulted as he tried explain the situation and pry his way back on the team. LOL. That's what they get for trying to fool ole admin.

when i first saw it... i thought it was like a new option to make your nation better (like being allowed to make your own flag to jolly rogers :D) but when i clicked it... it said mods only so i was like "Then why the hell would they show it?" and got bored and typed WAR below and then hit enter and i was like "wtf? it worked..." then i saw the delete button and assumed the eye was like tracking every action you do like it just sends you an ingame message or something so i was like "OMG IT WORKS!" and tried to go on forums but i was banned (never was told why i was banned... was hoping the admin would tell me so i wouldnt do it again xD) and so i emailed them instead. i was like "dude, it works." then i remembered that even though it was still march 31st... in their time its april first. so i emailed them again and said "nvm" and then wasnt 100% sure and went and looked up my nation and attempted to spy myslef and then the popup said april fools so i then tried to delete myself ._.

Yeah, well.....when you see a good April Fool's joke (which I thought the mod panel was) the only thing to do is to take advantage of it. I would have fake deleted more nations if my almost-3-year-old hadn't woken up sick.

Hail Admin! Hail April Fool's!
