So that's pretty much my question. I was checking out some ATS threads (had no other browsers open) when suddenly the screen was filled with dancing cartoon hamsters, and my speakers began blasting a frantic high pitched hamster version of Roger MIller's "Robin Hood". I saw no indications of a product of any kind, but I didn't get a chance to study it much. It flickered between the ATS page and the hamsters several times and then disappeared. Spooked me a bit. Any thoughts?


ETA: Anyone read " The Catcher In The Rye"? I really want to read that now for some reason..

Please go to this post by SkepticOverlord (one of the ATS site owners) and all will be clear. He set it up.

I was really pissed at first cause I thought that the obvious joke would have rendered the forums useless for the day (on mobile so it looked weird). Then it gt back to normal

Well my phone sound was turned off, and I still heard the song.
Uncomfortable, and not impressed.

...hamsters...




No, a whole parade of animals... I wonder if the owls, mice, bunnies, hamsters et al... are equal to the number of mods,
was SO being sly & cryptic ?

I just made my account today and saw the dancing hamsters as soon as I logged in for the first time. Wasn't sure if it was an April Fool's Joke or that's just how the site works. I'm glad to see that it's just a joke though.
