April Fools Day RFCEdit

There is currently an ongoing RFC about keeping April Fools day activities from getting out-of-hand, with a particular focus on the so-called Great April Fools Day Edit War. If anyone has any thoughts or comments, they would be greatly appreciated. Spirit of Eagle (talk) 03:30, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

This is an April Fools prank, isn’t it? Ma nam is geoffrey (talk) (talk) 11:27, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

Well, because this is just humour, it’s pointless to argue against it, but I think I might as well. For one, it is extremely unnecessary. Also, why Otto von Bismarck and not Sophie Germain? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ma nam is geoffrey (talkcontribs) 11:48, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

Sure, just as long as it doesn’t start a move war it’s fine by me. –ToxiBoi! (public) 17:14, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
