                Now for only $39.95...PlanetCyril t-shirts!
 
 
 
  money_eyes   money_eyes   money_eyes  
 
 http://archive.planetvampire.com  is back...a little shaken, but no worse for the wear.
 
 Some of you are pissed right now.  Some of you are laughing your asses off.  Others are just glad that it's over.  Many more are probably just wondering "what in the ever-loving hell was that all about?"
 
 This idea had been around for at least a couple years...the question of what would happen if Cyril took over PlanetVampire, as he sometimes claimed he would do in years past.  Some time last year -- I think it was in October, and I think we had been drinking -- we began to kick around the idea of making it actually happen.  Just for the hell of it.  Like some kind of Bizarro Jesus abomination, the thing grew legs and struck us all as being both hilarious and utterly horrid.  After some more serious discussion we eventually began to put it into motion.  So...I guess you could say this little stunt has been 6 months in the making...
 
 - Signothorn, Javokis and I played the parts of the dumbfounded "old blood" who were thrown out into the street by the old trickster
 - Dante was purposefully kept out of the loop for as long as we could manage...we didn't want to endanger his PES status, in the (likely) event that IGN fired the entire PV staff
 - Gaz contributed some of the scheme's most horrible components, and helped get it off the ground
 - Cyril played himself.  At first we weren't sure if he would go for it, but when we brought him on board, he played himself like nobody else could.  Thanks a lot for your help, and for being such a great sport about this, Cyril!
 
 Love it or hate it, I think it's safe to say that this prank has been pretty eye-opening to nearly everyone in our little community.  So...laugh, cry, curse our unborn children, or just shrug.  In a few days we will follow up with a more serious discussion about how we can take this input (as well as the input during the prank) and turn it towards some solid improvements for the site and the community.

                First I thought it was for real, then I thought it was a prank, then I thought it was real again. Well played! happy
 As much as I would like to buy a t-shirt, I just don't feel secure purchasing stuff online. Sorry.

                Impressive stuff, guys. I'm most impressed by how you got Cyril in on it, as when I looked back on his old posts, he had the new purple moderator-looking name and everything, so I realized that it was the same account and not a gag account made by Skyra or something.
 
 I laughed my ass off when I first saw the "Planet Cyril" heading after reading about Cyril wanting to buy the site for so long, but when I went on the board and a lot of people were acting like it was for real, I started to feel really freaked out and kinda alienated. I don't have anything against Cyril, but I like the "management" the way they are now and have been.

 Actually, it was a joke account, separate from his others. We were initially going to promote it to a moderator status but we knew we would need to have Cyril post on it so we used other means to change the name color. He wasn't a true mod, your IP addresses were safe ect.

                I have to say I've been watching this whole thing with this freaky mix of pride and horror.  You know, like when you realise that perhaps drinking and smoking under powerlines on a Satanic cult burial ground while pregant wasn't such a great idea.  You want to love the baby, but you just KNOW it's gona distroy mankind.
 
 
 I'm really quite impressed with how well everyone was "got."  The REALLY funny thing is, that if forumplanet hadn't gone to that subscription thing for users, we wouldn't have been able to pull it off without a significant amount of tap dancing.  It was as if the universe itself conspired with us.  Makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.  
 
 On the outside I still feel dirty though.  So very, very dirty.
