RFAprilFools

The Roblox Forums on April 1st, 2013.

2013's April Fools Day was a prank in which the names of all the forum topics were changed to internet memes or pop culture references. In light of events that occurred during the previous year's April Fool's Day, a thread created by ReeseMcBlox notified ROBLOXians that this was an April Fool's Day joke.[1]

In addition to the forums prank, a blog post was created about a new open-world game created by ROBLOX staff Andrew Haak and Alan Fackler.[2] Once players entered the game, it was discovered that Call of the Assassin’s Raider’s Tomb Planet of Creed was a joke.
