Say it ain't so! I love Stratics!
Sorry... but Facebook can not have my contact information.
Check the date.....
Is this an April Fools joke one day early?
Well, looks like an april fools joke got atleast one person so far
It's still March here.
I don't know, I also found the information on this site: http://noobist.com/gaming/facebook-acquires-gaming-fansite-stratics/
If it is true, then I am deleting my Stratics account.
Wait... just how do you delete an account? I can't find that option...
Not to ruin a perfectly good joke, but I doubt it is coincidence that a poster on The Noobist goes by the tag "Airmid" and there is also an "Airmid" here at Stratics. Perhaps just coincidence, but... unlikely.
Second... 100,000 users? *grins* I love Stratics, but... where are these 100,000 users who haven't heard of Facebook before?
Third... Google and Facebook fighting over Stratics? Weren't it that we all faced such dilemmas in life, but... no.
Fourth... *sigh* The idea behind April Fool's Day is that it is supposed to take place on April 1st, not near it. Increasingly April Fool's Day has taken place on March 30th, March 31st... it's getting out of hand.
April fool's a day early? Not believing anything for the next 72 hours.
Considering the track record of the 21st century's corporate evil empire, I can believe it. If it's a joke, darn, it's a very believable one.
The two best April Fool's jokes I ever pulled were on my boss, who's been a good enough friend that I could do them. Several years ago, I walked into his office after lunch and said that after that morning's conference, it was clear the database vendor's new guy was in over his head, and the vendor wanted to lure me away. "They really do?! When would they want you to start?" "That's the thing, right away. It means moving to ____." Oh, I got him, and he found it so good that he even stuck out his hand to shake mine. Even better, a few years later I walked in and said, "Whoa, did you hear that last night, Albany actually passed a budget on time?" (A budget passed on time finally happened in 2011.) "They really did?" "Nah, who are we kidding!"
"Internet giant Google had previously made a bid for the network in early 2014, but their offer was declined by Stratics’ Board for unspecified reasons."
All right, now I see the joke.
I'd just remind you all it's 9 hours into April First in Australia already This is almost certainly a parody of the Occulus Rift drama that was recently in the news, he he...
heard they bought it for a billion uo gold
Sucked me right in ..... First 'advert' I've ever clicked on here heh. Nice one, you got me too
Is that picture behind Taylor a painting of a train wreck?
I would say "April Fool's", except that this kind of thing actually happens. Don't see Zuckerberg giving a press conference about it though...(seriously, "worth a quarter million dollars in stock and options" - he would lose money to take time out of his day and talk about Stratics). Plus, the next dev team interview is on Google Hangout.
However, Taylor...Mr. CEO, if this is not a joke, I actually will quit using Stratics.
talk to me after april 15th ...... then we know if its so... til then its all hot air
They actually sold it for a super elite early starter package on SoTA
I ain't even gonna lie. I saw it on my FB feed, my heart sank, I got mad... fiancee even asked me what was wrong. As I sat there composing myself to answer her it hit me.... "TOO close to April 1st to believe something like that ya idiot" ... Put me in the got ya column, good one.
Taylor wishes he was so lucky as to get a Facebook buyout offer
If i got an offer from facebook, yeah id take it. i wouldnt care if half the stratics users quit.
As long as I dont have to be logged into facebook to use stratics, and arent bombarded with useless junk pokes and prods and apps and games and friends and blah, id still use stratics even if it were sold. Starts getting "facebooky" tho, yeah would probably only use when absolutely necessary.
WE ARE ALL GOING TO DISNEYLAND NOW - FREE CANDIE FOR ALL
What time we all going?
I too seem to be in need of a lollipop emote.
So if it, for instance, had the ability to 'like' posts, follow your "friends" and their post updates, had irrelevant threads posted full of pointless commentary....
yes! i was on the verge of deleting my stratics bookmark when you could "like" posts, and dread i will be stalked by "followers" If someone pokes me im going to rage!
I had to 'like' your post just because.
"Facebook’s acquisition of Stratics is estimated to be worth a quarter million dollars in cash and stock options." The Noobist
Why, I'd be happy with half that.
I'll go $8, maybe $8.50
Hmmm, Yahoo! is seeming pretty desperate these days....
