You have probably noticed some enforced downtime over the weekend and this evening, (Monday). Whilst the server move was true, it was not exactly as we led you to believe. We have in-fact moved all the forum software over to the servers at WatfordFC.com, (you may have noticed they were also offline for 2 hours on Saturday). The bulk of the move was done on Saturday but the downtime tonight was to enable the WatfordFC.com site to link into the forums and make some quick tests.

The tests are now complete. The forums are where they belong at last. More information when we get the go ahead to say, hopefully Thursday.

From the BBC gossip column. The organisation is obviously so convinced of 'dumbing down' that it felt the need to tell readers to check the date. :rolleyes:


England coach Fabio Capello believes it might be easier for his players to learn Italian than him to speak English. (The Sun) (check the date...)

To be honest I'm half asleep but saw right through it straight away, you must try harder :dismay:

In future you may want to put www.watfordfc.premiumtv.com or whatever it is?

OK, it's midday now so all April Fools are OFF.

Credit must go to Hornmeister for the original plan and for this page (http://www.wfcforums.com/images/misc/watfordfchomepage020408.jpg), and to the rest of the mods for working out the best way to plan the attack.

The server move at the weekend was GENUINE, but the hours downtime last night was most definately FAKE. We had a nice time with the forum all to ourselves for a change. We think more of you fell for it than actually posted :]]

Oh no, I fell for it.

In my defense, it was only halfway through March 31st when this thread came to my view. Who springs an April fool on March 31st?

I actually got a phone call today, from a certain poster, telling me about wfcforums merging with the official site and declaring: "...this is Graham Simpsons way of regulating what is being said about the club online..."

I always check the net first thing in the morning but don’t post, fortunately for me my homepage is newsnow which had nothing on it. Still very well done because I think there is a strong chance I’d have been caught hook line and sinker

I spent my journey into work double checking the metro to making sure I didn’t get caught out, and I don’t think there was anything in there! Best effort in the tabs was the Sun about Capello getting all the England players to learn Italian – have a look at some of the comments here: :]]

Apart from the new dog deterrent built into new BMW's on page 3. Apparently if a dog approaches the new BMW and ***** it's leg, it'll get a mild electric shock. There was a picture of a car and a mildly smoking dog next to it.

We'd definately have got you :]]

Was that in the metro? (edit Oh yeah so it is - always ignore the article on that page!!) I heard about it somewhere else, and no i didn't :cool:

There were some very good ones today though - and on the bbc website it has a list of the ones that could (maybe should) be April fools but weren't
