Believability

Realism - (+9.5)

Pat being banned - (-3)

March 31st -(+2)

April 1st - (-5)

Overall - 5/10


As for the joke itself: 8.5/10 :D

I have to admit I saw through it and the more I thought about it the more it confirmed my scepticism. The fact this topic exists made what was a slight scepticism  much stronger. Then that the claim about how Pat acted pretty much just didn't add. The fact Pat was still listed as a writer on LadyMpire sealed it I read this topic toward the end of the joke if Pat was really gone LadyM would have taken him off it by then. Even if she hadn't all together it spelt prank.

None the less it was a well done one the members played their roles well managed to get some people I tip my hat.

I say one day out of the month of April will be randomly selected and scheduled by the mods to pull something of that scale to keep us on the edge of our seats.

Patman33 is actually Steve's alternate account, and Pat never existed at all. :O
No way dude, you're trolling me.
