    They are trying to mess with everyone because of April Fools. It was kind of lame, but kind of funny I guess. I just don't see the point.... "Hey I see Muppets, don't you?" Uh, no.

    Ausamamira, I was trying to be on your side. I don't think you guys should get grief for making a good joke. I could make a grab capture on my Mac, but I don't know how to put it into the posts here.

    I'm on a Windows, and I see no Animals except the ones posted in the actual thread... Yours is one of you with a sunset, correct? Must be a problem on your end after all.

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    I think the Grand Duc is pranking us with the muppets. Some kind of prank because he's got a rival company's cartoon character for his avatar or something.

    Command/shift/4 (all at the same time time) will create a crosshair to use for getting an image of just part of a page. Set the cross hair at the corner of your desired image (I go for upper right), then click and drag like you're cropping to extract just that portion of the page as an image.

    Or, as Dimitri says, command/shift/3 will take a pic of the entire desktop and you can crop from there in Preview or iPhoto.

    And, btw, above is my screen shot of DustB's post, rather than just a quote, in case anyone is wondering how things look from my point of view. I use a Mac too.

    Gotta say it was a nice effort by Le Grand Duc and his cohorts but honestly, I think you'd have gotten farther just starting a thread saying that you get no longevity with 6 sprays of Black Aoud and nobody else can smell it on you either. Or claiming that your Green Frich Tweed smells better than the real thing.

    Still though, E for effort, guys.

    It is NOT an April fool on behalf of LeGrandDuc and others who have reported the weird avatar.
    I have the same issue too.

    I'm guessing it's an April fool on from the guys who run the site.

    That, or I do have some strange virus. xD

    I just noticed that Dimitri says cmd/shift/F3, which is incorrect and probably results in either all your windows getting moved to expose the desktop, or in muting your sound, depending on your keyboard.

    Hm, that *is* odd. But seriously, why would Grant supposedly spend all that time coding a silly joke in the middle of a big forum overhaul? There's so much work left to do that I really can't imagine him thinking that worth his time. *Plus*, again, I don't see any Animals. So a coordinated joke is out, AFAIC.

    Hey Duc baby, I'm looking at your avatar right now and see only Daffy Duck in the purple robe. I like him, he's cute! I was in Copenhagen for four days last summer and Amsterdam for two. I know that you guys over there like to party hard and know how to do that best. If that's what you did last night, it's OK. Just come clean about it. We won't be critical of you. We're your friends.

    I believe the Duc now, but you are obviously stirring up the untruth. I see an avatar of 2 legs, neither green nor hairy. Certainly not scary!

    That's what I was saying. I think the April fools joke is actually on us. There are no Muppet avatars, they are just messing with the rest of us.

    Well if Basenotes does have some sort of bug or glitch (whoever designed a muppet bug for internet forums has to be an odd one...), I'm sure the mods/Grant are working on it as we speak. We should be glad this isn't something more malicious!

    I saw this happen too - all the avatars became a picture of the Muppet called Animal. At first I was like "uuhh - is there something wrong with my computer?" and I searched around finding the Animal avatar on everything, everywhere. I semi-panicked and just before I hit reset I noticed it was April 1. I felt relieved and thought everything would be back to normal in a day or two and so didn't investigate it further.

    I've only just stumbled on this thread and discovered poor Duc et al being accused of making bad jokes and with a couple of people disparaging them as somehow lesser beings for doing it. Frankly, I think that's appalling. Even after posting evidence ... Sheesh.
    If you find an alledged 'joke' unfunny perhaps next time you should ignore the post instead of going on about it ...

    I can see your frustration Duc and I'm sorry I wasn't here to back you up.

    Lol don't be hating on the Animal!
    He was a favorite of mine too.

    And I could almost see you pulling your hair out as I read through the posts ... to be honest I thought a few people did go on about it a bit much - maybe they were in on it and tried to make it look like you were crapping on purpose. Gaslighting!

    Well it's all over now thank god - maybe if Grant and co. do it again next year it will be funnier. >.>
