    WTF!

    Can I be first to say "April Fool"?

  • Dave (unregistered)

    Is this new site going to have unfunny, badly drawn cartoons, or just amusing piss-takes on poor development practices?

  • WTF (unregistered)

    WTF!!!

  • Kenny (unregistered)

    The new direction for the site is what will make me stop coming here. You've changted the name for the site like 3 times in the last month. There is already a website dedicated to those stupid cats. We don't need them here. Comics, fine, but no cats please.

    Captcha: "acsi"?!? Shouldn't that be "ascii"? Oh no, hang on, actually it should read "unicode". ;-)

    I for one am very glad to see that you have finally mended your heathen ways.

    Think of the children

  • Man 987876980 (unregistered)

    I actually read nearly all the way through before I understood! Considering the many recent changes it didn't seem implausible until the kitten showed up!

    No, unless you're immibis. http://thedailywtf.com/Comments/Flirting-With-Disaster.aspx?pg=2#187014

  • No view filters? (unregistered)

    Would have been more convincing if you'd replaced WTF in more than two places ;) Out of interest, doesn't whatever framework the site is using have filters? Or middleware to do transformations on the view?

    Thank you parl...I am only sorry I couldn't be the first with this comment.

    Am I the only one who is sick of fake news / fake posts as April Fools jokes? Personal jokes, practical jokes, they're all fine. But when I come here and visit other sites, I don't want to have to scrutinize every goddamn post on the 1st of April to figure out if its fake. Same goes for news sites too. I expect the place to at least try to have some honest and integrity. When I see fake crap they put up, it makes me question every damn thing I read there.

    I'm only ranting about this because I hated the first name change this site went through, and am a die-hard fan of the WTF staying in the name.

  • Anonymous Fat Git (unregistered)

    Heck is a cus word in my house... please consider changing it to "What The Hey?"

  • Alan (unregistered)

    For fucks sake, I am sick of all these constant changes of the name. this isnt a childrens web-site, we are all adults here who can handle a bit of swearing- come on. Its just another inication of the terrible slide in quality this site has taken.

    And LOLCATS!!! Is everything now so okeydokey in IT there is nothing funny left??? I will not be updating my bookmark - I will be deleting it

  • snoofle (cs) in reply to Droll Troll on a roll

    Today is April 1? Foo. Feh. Fiddle Faddle!

    ...nope; it just doesn't have quite the same satisfaction as a good old fashioned "WTF!"

  • moltonel (unregistered) in reply to Anonymous Fat Git

    Hum.... calling somebody with "hey" isn't really friendly either. What about "Well Then, Honey" ? :)

    Don't you wish you'd figured that out before you acted like a fool?

    Next time, read some of the other replies before you post. I think it was the second one that would have saved your ass.

    Gee. Leave your sense of humor wherever it was you left your brain?

    I knew in about a millisecond that it was an April Fool's gag. If you couldn't figure that out, perhaps this site is a little too complex for you.

  • IHateApril1 (unregistered)

    sigh ... maybe I'm getting old ... but I'm declaring April 1st to be 'Internet Free' day since the jokes are getting stale (although WTH would have been funny if you hadn't actually really changed the sitename last year). All in all, this is much better than Wikipedia's IMA Hogg.

    Changing the name of the website?

    That... that is just failure.

    (It may even be worse).

  • Anon (unregistered)

    I was going to complain that this was a too obvious for an April's fools joke, but reading some of the comments, I clearly overestimated the intelligence of some of the posters.

  • MWB (unregistered) in reply to Anonymous Fat Git

    "What the hey" is also a shortening of "What the hell".

    Personally, I think the site should become "Gee Willikers, Wally"

    Perhaps the jokes are getting stale, but it's apparent from this thread that quite a few people still fall for them. And their comments are the most entertaining.

  • Aaron (unregistered) in reply to Alan

    Hear hear!

    I understand that the admins don't like to have to explain to their Grandmothers (and other relatives) what "wtf" means -- but instead of changing their domain name yet again, why not just tell people it means "What the Fudge?" or "Woodtree Frogs" or "Win the Farm"

    Trying to please a small demographic of people by inconveniencing a larger demographic (the TARGET demographic, even) is stupid. Even if kids WERE reading this site, the language on here is strictly cleaner (comments notwithstanding) than anything on basic cable; And I'm sure any kid able to use the Internet already knows what WTF means.

    Quit pandering to the grandmothers! They just use their high-speed internet to dry their clothes anyways!

  • Ian (unregistered)

    Ummm. 1st of April one presumes..?

  • A Nonny Mouse (Ms) (unregistered) in reply to Alan

    I am so delighted to see our beloved website heading in the direction of greater gentility. Might I suggest a further rename to "Oh My Giddy Aunt!"?

    TRWTF is that Alex forgot to back up the old logo so we're stuck with the new name for the forseeable future... ;^)

    Must be true... It's the 2nd of April, so it can't be April fools.

    Can't believe I had to wait this long to see such a dud April Fools article.
