    No, think it's being taken down in a few days.

    I just personally wanted to see your opinions tbh.

    We should definitely keep it, but make it physically impossible to go past the 140 character limit.

    What called it out as an April Fool for me was the "lacking context or relevant examples" part of the forum description, I knew even TSR wouldn't be encouraging that seriously.

    Interesting. Could be done probably if there was a longer need for it.

    It did actually fool me. I guess I just didn't think about it too much but it is quite silly really

    Yeah, that phrase was written by me as a 'clue' for the people paying attention, I'm glad it worked

    (It was also meant to be a dig at Twitter for being an inferior place to have a proper debate, but I doubt that came across quite so well :p:)

    Why not keep it? I stand with many TSRians when I say "KEEP IT!"

    Please keep it.
