There are many things in my life that have brought me joy and happiness (and taken lot of my spare time)... Not many can come as close to my experience with TamaTalk. Starting the site from the very early days of being surprised by reaching 50 members... To building a relationship with the great folks at Bandai... To continuing to meet lots of just really nice people on the forums who share a love for a little electronic pet. I have to thank the TamaTalk community for being so great and for bringing me lots of happiness, lots of learning and lots of pride in what we have built up over time. Thanks TTers! :lol: As with all good things, time change and things sometimes must come to an end. ;) I am sorry to say that today is a sad day for me because of what I have to announce. I didn't think that we would ever reach this point so soon. I seriously figured we would be around for years and years and years. Times and money situations have changed for me and it is just not as easy to stay as involved as I need to be. We have great members and AWESOME staff that make everything much easier... But some things just have to have a dedicated administrator around to keep things moving and running properly. I have loved being there over these years but I just don't have the time to do a proper job of it. If you are reading this far into this post then I hope you realize that it pains me greatly to say the following... :mimitchi: April Fools! :angry: We're not going anywhere. I just couldn't resist and figured this would be a fitting little trick to play (it was either this or some rickrolling). My sincere apologies if you were saddened by this (not too sure what to say if reading this made you happy :angry: ). Just to make sure we are clear... This is a joke. Now the real fun will be in seeing how many people actually read the whole post. Hope everyone has a great April Fools day. LOL What is your favorite prank?

I'm not much of an April Fool's person, but it'll be funny to see how some react.

ROFL. That was really funny. The bad thing was I checked the what's your favorite prank topic first while surfin' around TT, someone said the joke you played on us, Admin. So I was like, "what joke?" I looked around, and found this.

I knew this wasn't true. :unsure:

I'm not mad. I've been to a forum where they made people mods as a prank, let innocent people suffer on this day, and let everyone act like complete morons and break rules on this day. <_<

It wasn't pretty. :furawatchi:
