Indeed, it is .... amusing....that such a drastic measure would just happen to be announced on April 1st, of all days.
What are the chances that is merely a coincidence? Worse than 1 in 365, I'd say.

Methinks Dolby and Cairenn be pullin' a fast one on us all.

If so, then "Bravo!" I say...well played.
If not, well then "Bye! Thanks for the memories!"

I honestly Don't think it is a joke, I got the shipping receipt in my e-mail this morning from the order that Cairenn or Dolby placed for me. I assume that the rest of the staff have gotten Similar e-mails.

It seems to be a bit to much work to go through for a joke.

Sorry, but the above and your "shipping receipt" are a bit suspect given your "Super Moderator" (read: "In On It Now") title.

I seem to recall that this site has a long history of well played April Fools pranks.

I actually wanted to call you guys on it since my first post, but decided not to spoil the fun. And fun I had.

Can't believe people actually fell for it. I mean, even without noticing the date you should have known that Blizzard would never allow a site to charge users for downloading addons. You guys are so gullible. That's why this is my favorite trolling place <3

You peoples take this day way to seriously ....

I want to share this story, because to me it sums up the idiocy in this thing we call "fools".

So, I get to work early with a great day ahead of me. Finish up a few documents, write a few emails, check a few people and go home for a long and much needed weekend.

Mr. Joe Blow walks into my office;

"Storm, I need to talk to you."

Ok?

"Well, as you may or may not have know I am interested in pursuing a different avenue in my career.... fast forward.... I would like to hand you my official resignation."

a few minutes go by as I'm reading this and thinking.

"HAHAH Storm, APRIL FOOLS!"

another sixty seconds go by.

"Storm? I was joking, it's April Fools."

another 30 seconds go by.

"Storm?"

Well Mr. Joe Blow, your performance has been, how can I say it, less than average. I have been more than patient with you by pointing out obvious downfalls through the months hoping that you would realize and change the way you conduct your tasks. It seems to me that in light of your recent action, you have yet to realize the problems in your ethics and found time to draw up this joke in light of breaking the ice? At this time I will sign and honor your resignation, please clear your things and good luck on your future endeavor.

"What? You're letting me GO?"

I am not letting you go or firing you, I am simply honoring your request.

"But that was a joke."

I understand that Mr. Blow, but given your performance I need someone on my team with professional, timely execution, and ability; all of which you lack. Please collect your things and go home. I will notify HR and they will work on your exit interview.

--Storms out of my office slamming my door--

I'll cut the end part, basically I get a call to see the President and HR Director. They ask if what I did was a joke to him in light of his action. I said no, produced my documentation showing the recorded conversations, problem areas, and his lack to change.

So the moral of the story? Watch what and who you play an April Fools joke on because in the end, you may be without a job!

I have zero guilt for the situation that took place and in fact I am rather pleased because now I can find a competent Technology professional who has ability and dedication.

Sounds like a horrible place to work imo. I'd think it would be better to motivate your employees that
are under performing first since thats really the job of a good boss. Ofcourse I don't know the history.

I'm so happy I work for ZAM where my bosses can take a good joke and get in the spirit of the day. I'd probably be trying to find a new job if the atmosphere wasn't as such.

It's very horrible.

I would not come anywhere near it.

You think your spoiled now, you'd be dog.... over here.

I eat people like you for breakfast.

You have your dreams.

You have your goals.

You have your expectations.

I take those dreams.

I take those goals.

I take those expectations.

I eat them.

I make you feel like the smallest guy in the world.

I chew you up.

I spit you out.



In other words I still think April Fools is stupid and my story above was the only five minutes of "FOOLS" you get.

Now I must go board my G6 and head to Paris because this weekend is all about luxury and life.

NO, ok that was another FOOLS for you. I'm going to sit my fat arse on the couch, eat my hoho's, and watch Desperate Housewives reruns.

OH Dolby, I'll see you at BlizzCon. I heard you guys need shade outside.

Slap ol'Cair for me and tell her she's awesome.

Dolby just FYI, I'm totally pulling your chain dude! I'm not THAT bad of a leader LOL.
