O.P. April Fools: Exciting News for Messenger Plus!
Update: This is an April fools joke. The content of this post is completely functional.
People were still getting confused and it has been causing a bit of trouble. Huge thanks to Wj for putting all of this together this year and remember, watch out next year!



Hey Everyone!

We've got some exciting news for your favorite Messenger add-on! As of today, I have some new members joining my development team.

Sayid Jarrah
Kate Chalmers
Maria Sanchez

They are some of the best talent from the new Owner of Messenger Plus, Thatís right, Messenger plus has been purchased by Microsoft. After getting a hold of the new Plus! Live beta they were excited about the features I was developing and they made me an offer I couldnít refuse. Now to help me make this decision, We have some other great news, Another new member of the Plus! Family.

Fraise and I are having a baby! We are very excited, We've been holding off on letting everyone know until I knew this deal would go through. Now I will have enough time to continue to direct and shape the development of Plus! and be a good father to my new Daughter.

We've got some exciting weeks coming up and were looking forward to working with our new co-workers at Microsoft.

And donít worry, We're not going to let Microsoft destroy plus, It will continue to be the same great add-on it always has been.

Hey,

Well, Patchou was right. It wasn't a good idea to announce it on April 1st. Anyway, i'm Sayid Jarrah and i'll be helping on the Messenger Plus! project, nice to meet you :). I'll be the only one to join the forum's staff, so don't worry at all.
I can't tell you more information about me (if you don't know me) right now, but I'll try to post again this evening to give you more information and let you know what will i be doing exactly.

i don't know... this could be a joke, although.... i don't know what to think

as long as patchou is in charge of plus!, and they don't add there name to it, or try to take over it, i think it might work? this is just a shock

how much did tehy offer

Dont worry, Patchou's still a part of the team, he will be doing a part of the job, just think of it as getting new developers to fully improve Messenger Plus!
Even though we might've to change the name, or a bit of it.

Oh, and we're setting things up at the moment, having a nice chat on a private forum (that's why i think you can't see all my posts).

Another proof?

Good try, patch, but I advise you next time to...
  • ...train a bit in photo manipulation. :P
  • ...don't post a news message on April the 1st! We're no fools! ;)

Who knows, it might actually be true, because, when you try to find Sayid Jarrah's posts, you'll only see the two replys he has posted here, so he could be posting in a private forum just like he says! :O

Time will tell...

Hm ya, he will have to change that "not affiliated with M$" part of the website :P. I guess he forgot about it as Plus! live will have it's own website, remember? :chrongue:
