I didn't test that, but did it change? It's unspecified where.

I'm quite sure it didn't; Paddle replied to one of my comments on April Fools' Day and I would have remembered a change if there had been one :P

OK! I made the screenshots of the 2012 Aprils Fools Pranks from the Scratch Forums. Can you use them in this wiki Article? Thanks!

Ugh...I hate april fool's day! They even changed things at the last minute!
XenoK_Studios (talk | contribs) 14:11, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
I noticed something a few days after the April fools' joke with the new logo: the pony had an 's' on it's back! I thought that was funny, because the joke was that the logo was changed to 'neigh' but there was still an 's' on the pony's back.

I added some more pranks. If gave wrong information, feel free to change them.

In the "tutorials" section of the editor. There is a "How to find a sprite" tutorial. Is this an april fools joke for this year. Or was that there before?
MrSquirrelDeDuck (talk | contribs) 21:33, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

It's an April Fools' joke for this year I think - look at the Scratch News section of the Scratch homepage. There's something about it. :)

Early Pranks

Yes Resolved (since 22:06, 31 March 2021 (UTC))

Should I say that the pranks were a day early this year?
HiPeeps124816 (talk | contribs) 19:40, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

I think it is fine as it happens most years.
Dogsmakemehappy (talk | contribs) 20:31, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
Usually they start in the evening Scratch Time, while this year they started midday, so that is noteworthy imo.

Missing Reference

Yes Resolved (since 17:07, 3 April 2021 (UTC))

In the section 2021 it has this quote, “ Hey fellas — we removed the “New Topic” button from Suggestions temporarily due to spam. I don't know when it will be back; tomorrow, maybe? Remember, pranks are funny — spam is not. I discourage spam on April Fools' Day for a reason. For more funny hahas, I plan to clean up the Suggestions forum, closing/deleting some joke topics, all while leaving forum funny haha posts. I think the extent of April Fools' Day was pretty much over, though.

” – Za-Chary

Could someone add a reference to that quote.

Executive decision: April Fools' Day activities that have not yet happened are not to be documented

Yes Resolved (since 03:26, 6 March 2022 (UTC))

In light of recent editing on this page, I'm making the executive decision that details of activities for April Fools' Days that have not yet happened are not to be revealed on the Wiki. Anyone may gather such details themselves, but they must not post them on the Wiki until the April Fools' Day itself has happened. Let's not spoil the fun - any information is spoilers, even if it's incomplete. Wait until April 1st.

Add back pls

Yes Resolved (since 16:57, 6 March 2022 (UTC))

Please add back 2022 because it is not a spoiler, as there is NOTHING happening when the easter egg is activated. Maybe we'll remove it after the easter egg is done. Thank you.
Pizza0430 (talk | contribs) 05:41, 6 March 2022 (UTC)

  1. It could easily turn into a spoiler at any moment
  2. No information about future activities are allowed. That includes where to find the AF editor early.

Dhuls, you're wrong. The thing is not completely done, the Cat Mode is enabled, however, all the world is stage doesn't work at all.
Pizza0430 (talk | contribs) 11:19, 8 March 2022 (UTC)
I thought I made myself quite clear. No 2022 April Fools' Day content whatsoever is to be documented on the Wiki yet, whether it's a spoiler or not. Only once April Fools' Day is here may you add it. This is an executive decision and is final.

I completely agree that the spoiler shouldn't be added back, but what's wrong with discussing an executive decision if it doesn't turn into a flame war?
Jackson49 (talk | contribs) 05:21, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
Nothing wrong with discussing the decision; "final" just means the discussion will likely not end up changing it.

I do not agree with the change MyScratchedAccount made

Note Note: This section was originally on Talk:April Fools' Day Pranks and was moved here when that talk page was deleted
  1. Because the article is about April Fools' Day and April Fools Day pranks.
  2. "It is about the pranks not the April fools' day." is not a good description to why it should be moved.
  3. "April Fools' Day" works for both April Fools' Day and April Fools Day pranks

What I am saying it is better if it gets moved back to "April Fools' Day" and the page it is on right now becomes a redirect.
Scratchgodopfp.pngScratchgodo (Talk|Contributions|Scratch) 11:17, 19 April 2023 (UTC)

Looks like it has been undone and the page has been protected from being moved :D.
UserIconAdzboy.png AdzboyTalkContributionsScratch Profile 16:27, 19 April 2023 (UTC)
Yes, for the reasons stated by scratchgodo I think it should stay at the original location. Any further moves for this article should be discussed and get consensus. (For context, the article was renamed to "April Fools' Day Pranks")

The Semicolon

 Unresolved (see all...)

(Not an AF topic!) Should we actually include that info that says the semicolon returns every April Fools in every single year? According to the article itself, the semicolon automatically appears when the computer's clock is on 1 April. I think adding it to either the lead or common pranks would be the best.

@Purin2022—I agree, but it hasn't been every year. It was only introduced not too long ago. Also, sorry for my obnoxious {{quote}}s. I was working on a lot of things on the forums and here and the five minute loading times was making it hard. I should've done cite posts.
I also did put back the thing that you changed from 8am to 1pm back to 8am. I was trying to give a timeline in the article that can stay like that forever, not intending to update the time, even though that sentence does remain true.
Han614698 H Logo.png han614698 talkcontribs (1,913)profile 17:51, 1 April 2024 (UTC)
@han614698 — Yes, it hasn't been every year, but it is a lot of years. It was 2014 and every year from 2016 (so 10 years out of the 16 Scratch had existed!). Also, on the 8am/1pm thing, I don't really see why 8am would be very helpful — they changed it at 9am? So I think once AF is better, it might be better to just say, "2024 did not introduce any unique changes to the website" or simliar.
Purin2022 Mini User Icon.png Purin2022 | 💬Talk | 📝Contribs | 🐱Scratch 20:27, 1 April 2024 (UTC)
@Purin2022Yes I'm okay with that, I just don't think we should be updating the time for the rest of the day. For the semi-colon, I think we should wait until AFD is 100% over before revamping and "archiving" in a way, the article.
