April Fools

@Huw......Brilliant! I think in the short time the prank (or not) has been posted, you can gauge from the response so far that it's caused a bit of a buzz. Fantastic!

    Although half of the responses have been from people in-the-know.

    Ha.

    I'm a tiny tiny fish who's not being doing this long, but there are a fair few names I've not seen in the forum who are genuinely excited, but don't know whether to believe it or not. Imagine waking up to this (USA) and seeing this news before midday. Huw's news (prank or not) is going to spread throughout the Lego community now and I think the Brickset website is going to receive considerably more hits than usual over the weekend with members eagerly checking for updates.

    WHAT!!! There's a forum, why didn't anyone tell me???

    I had to delete a post or two so far. And imperial13 seems to be Huws accountant or something. :o)

    It's actually a priviledge watching it unfold. @Huw - thank you. Small minds and all that!

    Brilliant idea @Huw! I was a bit confused that nobody mentioned the forum's actual existance in that news thread, and then it dawned on me that it's still being kept a secret for an official confirmation! ;) It can be found with a quick google of "brickset forum", I think you'll have to make an announcement soon or people will spill the beans! :)

    So, the cat is out of the bag already?

    Someone else posted a link and it goes straight to here. :-)

    Yep - someone posted a link and others have picked up on it. I dropped Huw an e-mail to let him know....

    Yeah, the bricksetforum.com is not working but the posted URL going to the site does. Unfortunately that bypasses the forum intro splash screen. I'm going to delete the comment with the URL while we wait for an official announcement

    Well, just as I go to do that, I see the forum appears launched :p

    Yes, Dr D emailed to say the cat was out the bag so I decided to launch a few hours earlier than intended. I've deleted the direct link.
