On Who's online, it referenced there being one hidden member online.  I saw LadyM look at this thread, send a PM, and then the hidden member disappeared.  My guess:LadyM saw this thread and it referencing the possibility of Patman being hidden, so she covered it up by telling Patman to log off.

Neah, then we'll get banned if it's real.  On the other hand, would I get banned for posting an "Epic of Patman" detailing his rise and death in six months or so?
Done tastefully this would probably be ok.

Also, as LadyM mentioned, the Off-topic thread has been deleted per Patman's request.  Sorry gents.  I'll start a new one proper tomorrow morning.

i don't believe Patman would ask it to be deleted.

Well, he asked it be locked but, I'd rather not start a second topic as the first so, we'll just start over.

Real clever way for the mods to advertise spam deleting.

Since I don't really look anywhere else except the Spore forum when I'm milling around here I'm fairly ignorant on who Patman33 is. I realize that he is the highest poster but aside from that, who IS he? What makes him so special? Is he just a generally well-like person? Or is it something else entirely?

Anyway, I realize that it's probably a stupid question, but I'm curious. I should probably take a break from all my roleplaying and read up on this guy. >.>

IF it is not an april fools joke (which it may very well not be), then that sucks.

I still won't fully believe it til tomorrow.

Oh, it's real alright. You should have seen the... uh, crapstorm on the IRC earlier.
There was like nobody online. I don't think they'd stage that when there was nobody around to fool.

I didn't even say much, so I might as well not have been there as far as they knew.
Oh right, Pat's also banned off the IRC.


EDIT: But seriously, if this is a joke (and don't tell me I don't have a sense of humor), it just leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Pat is one of, if not the first, people I met in the RPSTSection.

He introduced me to the ups and downs of that section and he also advised me on some important aspects on character creation, along with Oberlieutenant Krakow and the other guys.

He's a really swell guy.

Right.

This is madness!

My post count went down by 300

Youtube rickrolling everyone, Google to go to Mars, Microsoft and Yahoo agreeing on a buyout price, Peta making meat-based food products, names of topic starters getting screwed with, and Pat getting banned.

All in all, a pretty typical April 1st.
