But the post count remains the same, so it can't be deleted.

I have to hand it to the admins, I feel as though they have partially redeemed the joke. Sure, they laid it on too thick at first, but they're not giving it up, and I give them credit for that. Commitment, I tell you.

That was just lazy, they didn't even capitalize it. Come on mods, if you are going to try too hard, at least try too hard enough.

Lol. Yes.

I may be gullible, but I don't think the mods would lock the entire lounge for a joke.

Yeah, you may be gullible.

edit: Seems to me that they realized how their super duper awesome April Fools' Prank didn't play out how they had dreamed, so this is their last ditch effort to make us believe by taking it to the next level.

Why not? Locking the lounge for, 30 mins or an hour won't destroy the site.

If they really deleted the entire lounge, wouldn't our post counts go down? Or is that just when they archive?

Why is there still speculation as to the validity of this? They'd risk law suits over rights issues with regard to the publications of your articles, the selling of our information without consent, and several other issues. It would make no real business sense for USNews to purchase TLS. It makes more sense for them to simply start their own forum. TLS offers little to USNews beyond a small forum population and redundancy with the ranking and school profiles.

the mods are dumbasses, all you have to do is click on the last person to post in the lounge (the mod - I can't remember his name), go to his "recent posts", click on the thread header, and you're right back here to this thread. so even though they locked the forum, they did not lock the individual threads, leaving a backdoor open. this is probably just a retarded joke, which, I might add, is making me want to leave the site, I opened an account seeking advice, yet can no longer do that while this stuff is locked up.

Lol. "How do I make friends? Nobody will invite me to their parties. Everyone likes me when I'm around, but they never want me around when I'm not." Lol.
