WordPattern (April Fools!)

Posted April 1, 2006 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Releases.

On behalf of the WordPress community, I’m proud to announce a merger we’ve had on our minds since the first time we saw Dean Allen’s dog — WordPress and Textpattern are joining forces to create the greatest CMSMS ever, WordPattern. “WordPress and Textpattern: Two great tastes that taste great together.”

As with any great union, there were compromises involved. “I’m going all-Georgia, all the time. And blue is the new yellow.” said Dean Allen. Matt Mullenweg mused “Ten custom fields should be enough for anybody!”

We have a list of new features, downloads, and much more available on WordPattern.org. Our respective websites are being decommisioned so it’s best to go there for new information.

I always dig most of them – they’re good for a few laughs. But I kept finding comments from people, or links to their own blog rants, about how much of an annoyance April Fools’ Day is to them, lots of snipes at the “lameness” of certain ones, or even that April Fools’ has no place in the technology world because it apparently messes up stock markets worldwide.

  46. [...] With every passing year more and more websites participate in April Fool’s Day by publishing fake news, announcements, products, and press releases.  There’s lots of fun on the Web on any given day, but twice so on the 1st of April. There are so many of these jokes floating around, that some people even collect them into long lists with embedded ads. While reading through one of these lists, I came across this joke about WordPress and TextPattern merger.  That was a funny one.  But it wasn’t the joke that got me thinking, but rather the blog entry in itself.  If you scroll down that entry, you’ll see all pingbacks and trackbacks from other sites than linked to it.  Not everyone understood that it was a joke.  Some people took it serioiusly.  And now they look like fools (isn’t it how you’re supposed to look on 1st of April anyway?).   Some of them had even deleted posts that provided the pingback, but from the pingback excerpt on WordPress site you can actually see if the joke was understood or not.  Morale: if you made a fool out of yourself, and proved so with pingback/trackback – don’t make it worse by deleting the content.  Internet forgets nothing.

  93. [...] Having the responsibilty of organizing My Brother Kenton’s multi-tasked life since his death, has not been an easy job. He was an extremely quiet and focused indiviudal. He had one of his Mac G4 PowerBooks with him at all times. His iChat (AIM for Mac) logs have been a recent obsession of mine. He often didn’t know his Messenger was up, the popularity of his Blog at Xanga, and other endeavors, he became highly skeptical of incoming messages, iniating an Instant Message is just something he did not do. As we’ve seen with Sarah, Kenton could hold his own in a debate, as she feel into contraciction after contradiction, into basically exposing herself as a fraudulent tool, let alone know someone like ‘Pimpc334′, whose dialogue with My Brother, is that of an uneduacated fascist. Of course as we can count on, Aaron had left tracks back to himself, in his own words he can contradict Pimpc334. Our webmaster helped track down the likely candidate of who this self-proclaimed Gay-Basher was. I have no commentary with psychology professors on this one, it is self explanatory. This kind of Intolerance comes from a lack of understanding, especially one’s self. Cor Barret [...]
