What happens to your prank thread on April 2nd? Does it stay alive or is it deleted? What happens then when someone visits this forum on April 3rd and sees the prank thread and thinks it is real because it is no longer April Fools Day?

I belong to the group who is grumpily trying to sort out real news from fake in my RSS feeds these few days, and no, ignoring it for one day on April 1, won't work as the unread RSS posts are all mixed up in there...
