Posted under RFGen Thanks, April Fools, Collectorcast, Donate, Community

Apparently none of you guys took advantage of spring break this year and decided to instead stick around rfgen submitting to the database. We had quite an impressive month in March with 9 different members making 100+ submissions for the month. Itís especially nice to see some members from the PAL region working hard on filling in those gaps. So letís give a special thanks to the top 5 submitters of this month: Bildstar, Fragems, The Razemeister, Apolloboy and Sirgin!!

And donít forget about the amazing approval staff we have. Shadow Kisuragi and Paully3433 were prolific this month and took on the brunt of those submissions approving well over 600 of them each.

Just as importantly though, we want to thank all of you for having a good sense of humor. It seems that many of you guys forgot, or were just unaware, of how important April Fools is to us here at rfgeneration. This yearís April Fools Blog suckered in quite a few of our members  Luckily the staff here are as honest as they are humorous and disabled the donate button for the day so that nobody was duped into donating under false pretences. 

Itís great to know that so many of the members here are willing to pony up for our services, but rest assured that wonít be the case. Rfgeneration has always been a community driven site. It was founded with the idea that site can be, and so far always has been, supported by its members. Every year you guys have stepped up and donated enough to keep the site both free and ad free. So even though you donít have to worry about being forced to pay to access our database we are always accepting donations to cover our server and other costs. That donation button at the top of the page should be functioning properly again now Wink

With all that said there was a kernel of truth in the April Fool Blog. The Collectorcast has been successful and because of the size of the episodes we are quickly running out of space on our podomatic account. The cost to upgrade to the next storage level is quite sizable. To help out Duke, Bil and myself with this financial strain the benevolent staff here have offered to host some of our older episodes through the site so that we can lower our storage on podomatic. A landing page for the collectorcast is also in the works.

So in summary, thanks to everyone for supporting the site with your time, generosity, knowledge and support (except for Zagnorch of course Wink )!!

Posted under Site News, Android, PC Compatibility in the future, April Fools

I can't believe you all fell for it! And don't tell me you knew it was all a ruse, I know you thought it was real. The good news is that RF Generation is not going anywhere, we'll always be here for you guys and we certainly wouldn't intentionally betray our audience like that.
In fact, I don't even own an Android device or even its competitors, so its safe to say you're all safe from us becoming Android Generation for real.

However, theGrue's Android App is most definitely real, and you all should download it and give feedback on it if you do have an Android device.

Keep it on your Android device Channel 3!

Hey! It was April 1 yesterday! A high holy day at RF Generation! April Fools! To those of you that missed Zombie Generation, sorry! Thanks to all those that helped out, specifically, Mike, Eddie, and Den! They are the best! We love April Fools, and without them it'd just be me working on April Fools, and we'd get something like Pretty Generation... pretty as a posy...

Keep it tuned to Channel 3!

You know, the Church of RF Generation was fantastic. It might have been a little late, but late to the party is better than no party at all. I'd like to give Den props for the idea, images, and color palette. It truly was fun.

As many of you know, we started our server move Sunday Night. It didn't exactly go to plan. Something bad happened which kept us from coming back in time. In that emptiness, I hope you found something to keep yourself occupied. If you didn't, rest assured that we are back and on a new, faster, better server. It's nice. Also, we have a better control panel and we we're saving six dollars a month. Hooray to that.

I hope you enjoyed our April Fools joke. It was fun. If you're new here, April Fools is a High Holy Day for RF Generation, and we go all out. Additionally, we do not take suggestions for April Fools, so don't even try. I'll ignore any message regarding it. Might even block you. We take pleasure in knowing that only a certain few people know the gag, and it's generally a surprise. From Composite Generation, to Pretty Generation to Toddler Generation to Geriatric Generation to the most recent Church of RF Generation... we love April Fools. Until next year!

You know what happens when your April Fools joke is horribly cut short by your old web host? The answer is, that we at RF Generation get rather irked. You see, we at RF Generation see April Fools as a high holy day. We really, really enjoy April Fools, and well, our old host suspending our site made us a bunch of sad pandas.

Thankfully, our April Fools joke was geriatric in nature. One of the aspects of old age lends itself nicely to our predicament. Old people, unfortunately for them, tend to lose track of things, including the date. So, surprise! Happy May Fools!

Weíd like to thank everyone who was involved in our little joke, especially our resident graphic artist den68. He kicks ass. We thought about waiting until next year to show off Geriatric Generation, but doing this joke on May 1 probably led to a WTF moment for lots of people, which is exactly what we wanted to do, because we at RF Generation like to have our fun.

Of course, Geriatric Generation is the latest in a long line of April Fools Jokes, and I can almost guarantee that come next April First, there will be a whole new experience to be had. Between then and now, there might be other new things. We donít know. Perhaps. Perhaps not. I hear that if you give us a shrubbery we might be more inclined to add stuff. Strike that. Two shrubberies.

From all of us at RF Generation, keep it glued to channel three!

Yes, it was an April fools joke, just like my personal favorite April Fools joke, Pretty Generation, where everyone was pretty as a posy. What a beautiful time that was.

For those of you who did not see the April fools joke, you can find Toddler Generation here. You can also find the posts of April Fools in the the April Fools category of the forum. This won't be a permanent category, and will likely be decommissioned in a week or two. So get to seeing those posts if you haven't seen them yet.

Luckily for you guys, unlike the previous two years the site remained fully functional today save for the hideous color pallette that was Toddler Generation. As such, any changes you made to your collection on April 1 will remain them, and any submissions made also still exist. I'd like to thank our resident graphic artist den68 and our Database Director Eddie Herrmann with assisting me with the joke, this would have been much harder without them.

For those of you who wonder about the previous April Fools jokes of the site, here is a list of them in chronological order:

As you can see, this is a reoccurring theme here at RF Generation, so you can expect to see another one of these jokes come again next year. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Having said that, we have a lot of things cooking at RF Generation. Our third birthday is coming up, and you can expect to see some contest and birthday bash in 4 weeks. Also, we've began the extremely arduous process in cleaning up the site and making it use CSS tags. I guess you could call it a site redesign. Don't expect to see the new site rolling out in the near future, but I thought that perhaps you might like to know what's cooking at RF Generation. As that gets closer to fruition I am sure more will be said about that project.

As always stay tuned to RF Generation. More is certainly going to follow when you keep it tuned to channel three.
