    So, I didn't know whether to put this here or in General Discussion, so I went here.

    Can we talk about this countdown happening? 364 days until next April Fools? What up with that?

    I'm betting nothing. It will just disappear tomorrow.

    It's not a countdown. It's a header. Notice that it doesn't actually count down.

    I forgot about April 1st. I think of the ones I've been here for, the anonymous shitpost flood is my favorite.

    edit: aaaaaaaaand now I see that it actually does count down....

    I think the April Fools is that it'll count down all the way to the next April Fools, and then be actual literal nothing.

    I feel like that would honestly get really annoying. I'd end up messing with a styler to get rid of it.

    In an effort to cast off its traditional edgelordy crankiness and bring in much needed new demographics, like soccer moms, DLP has decided to join more family-friendly HP fandom sites like PS or SIYE in celebrating our favorite merry, frolicking prankster's birthday: happy birthday, Gred and Forge! :nyan:

    My guess is that it's a countdown to my 28th birthday.

    What bothers me most is that 2020 is a leap year, so the countdown to next April Fools is off one day.

    This mystery is getting mysterious.

    When the count down is done, Raven turns the server off.

    Well yes, didn't you already stipulate that?
