How to Opt Into Pranks--The Please Prank Me List
« on: October 30, 2007, 07:02:56 AM »
Since different people have different preferences concerning pranking, I think we need to know whether people want to be pranked or not.

One of the pranks that was played on me was when Peaguy exchanged profiles with me including our email addresses and he changed my password, so I couldn't do my job here.

Another prank played on me was when Hadron adminned Scrapheap and one of them de-adminned me, which again kept me from doing my job. 

So I don't think that pranks are all that funny anymore, but I understand and I'm willing to accept that other people see it differently.


If you think that pranks are harmless fun that gives a laugh to the community, and you don't mind being pranked, please sign up to be pranked here.


(I'm not signing up here, since I prefer not to be pranked.)

I would like to sign the list, though I suspect it might have the annoying side effect of being pranked less...

 :yawn:

Why do you think I'm taking a break if making pranks 24/7 is fun and exciting?

I'll be absent from next week, so don't worry your pretty, little heads now over future pranks. ;)

To be honest I don't think this list goes anywhere close to addressing the concerns that the anti-prank list raises.

Some of these may have gone too far. Wouldn't it be better
to set some general rules as to what pranks are NOT acceptable?

One thing that should be unacceptable is blocking someone from accessing the site.
George:I'd say I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not. I excel at not giving a shit. Experience has taught me that interest begets expectation, and expectation beget disappointment, so the key to avoiding disappointment is to avoid interest. A equals B equals C Equals A, or whatever. I also don't have a lot of interest in being a good person or a bad person. From what I can tell, either way, you're screwed. Bad people are punished by society's laws, and good people are punished by Murphy's Law

I think it was a brilliant prank. Asides the blocking was a side effect, not the prank itself.

I agree - and this is exactly HOW the points should be phrased.
Open enough that the effects are important - not the actions.

I don't care if people prank me, but if they just want to be a racist prick, then I'm going off on them period.

Piss off. You're only targeting me because it's far easier to do than having a go at the KKK.
