    Did everyone get WordPattern showing up in their dashboard today under the WordPress Development blog?

    Good April Fools Day Joke whoever did it? ha ha!

    But on a serious note. Is it a joke? Or did someone hack into my blog to make it appear their? ;)

    For a true fusion they should have went with the slogan:

    Code Is Text · Pattern Is Poetry

    Or something...

    It's one thing throwing a damn good april fools joke and its another registering a domain and designing a site around it. Top marks!

    Awesome April Fool's joke. :)

    I did go to this forum to check if it was real first, however. I had a feeling that something wasn't Kosher, so I decided to check. :)

    This was a great prank and took a lot of thought and effort.

    I have to admit, the screen shots looked really nice. Great touch....

    Oh poop.
    I saw this earlier today and I got so excited. I was waiting to download it before I went to bed, but I just decided to download it.
    I was confused when it said "two failed projects"...I thought I must be out of it.
    Then when it said it was aquired by flikr then by yahoo! Thats when I started getting suspicious.
    Then I downloaded it.
    (First prank pulled on me all day)

    I laughed. Hard.

    I did, too. Afterwards I started reading the info about it - and realized I'd been had! Give a group of techies too much time and look at what they do to you! (heh)
