    Its with a heavy heart and very full pockets that today I announce TurkerHub has been sold to a wealthy Prince from Nigeria named Adaaaam Tyrone.

    The server issues from last week were simply the result of transferring the website over. Its now hosted on Lightning™ by DuoCloud®

    No worries though, folks, your new overlord has created a video to introduce himself and begin raining pennies down upon all of you, his blessed children.



    You may see some "improvements" (improvements is © 2005-2017 by Amazon Mechanical Turk) to the forum, these are all courtesy of Tyrone so make sure you thank him by donating huge sums to the forum. No worries all of your donations will be doubled and sent back to you in the bank account you specify when you provide Tyrone with your acc # & ssn. As always you may need to Ctrl+F5 in order for the changes to take effect.

    Thanks y'all, its been a fun ride and I hope you all enjoy your weekends!

    (forreal I'll be traveling today so everyone be kind and enjoy your weekend)

    You can click the little April 1 icon on the left hand side to turn off the festive stuff, it'll turn red when its off.

    Be happy, this was 10x as obnoxious but I took out all the awful stuff so folks could leave it on if they thought the coins were cute w/o it being too unbearable lol.. it could have been this:

    Masterfully done. :emoji_bow:

    For anyone that wants to experience what's behind this spoiler first-hand, just as the mod team had the horror pleasure of beta testing, I plundered the avatar replacer from the depths of the Staff Forum just for you! Aren't you lucky?! :emoji_gift:
