Impersonation
Join to comment
In the TFOL Private Club, some people have been impersonating Chris Phipson and Sean Kenney. They have "exercised" their "mod powers" by telling members of "i Brick" that their group has broken rules and will be deleted.

I believe this is breaking the MOCpages rules and should be stopped and perhaps ban those who have participated in this. Yes, I know it's April Fool's day, but I strongly think this is going much too far.

I have taken some screen shots:

Have you no sense of humor? Go to their home page, their MOC's are obviously not the real staff, so nobody actually thinks this is real. I had quite a laugh this morning.

I deleted the comments in i Brick before I saw this. Their comments turned into a conversation in the "Ask the Admins" thread, so I deleted the comments.

Sadly, I was part of that conversion.
Sorry about that ;(
Thank you for deleting them!

I seriously thought someone had hacked Flare's account because stuff like that happens. Just look at what happened to Beaver Boy. First a hacker pulls a prank and then things go south.

Anyone who falls for so clumsy an impersonation deserves anything they do to themselves.

He didn't even change the titles and main pictures of his most popular MOCs.

Five minutes of work and vastly increased credibility, but no.

Hey Legobuilder Jr.

As it was April Fool's Day, I think it is acceptable to make a little prank. We had fun, and there was no lasting damage - in the end we all had a good laugh from it. I don't think that it is breaking the MOCpages rules in any way, unless it is in the way that I said that iBrick was breaking them ;)

Thanks for listening and have a good day!

I did it on purpose, and I even had a disclaimer on the bottom of my homepage. I've changed my homepage back now, but if anyone wants the HTML code of my page they can have it (for proof. Although it might be in the snapshots Legobuilder Junior made but I can't see them as they are blocked from my computer)

That was my intention, to cause a laugh. Glad someone can appreciate an April Fool's joke.

Not only afraid for you, also for Chris' account, imagine what a crazy account thief could do in MOCPages if he really stole one of the admins' account...
But you still have Chris' buddy icon >_>

Its not very easy for someone to break into someone else's account, and anyways there wouldn't be much of a point of it since this isn't some crazy popular site like FB or Twitter or something. But anyways, yes, it would be bad!

Oops, I need to go find where my normal buddy icon is...

It was easy to tell it was you, when you first commented, your original buddy icon was still your normal one :)

Why comment in the ask the admins thread? Chris wouldn't do that. He'd comment somewhere where it's respectful.
Your place to comment was obviously in the wrong thread. If you commented somewhere better, your laugh might have been better. It was annoying deleting the comments since they were out of place. I was personally fine with it, I laughed a bit. But like Brick Boy said, if someone was new, how would he know? I guess they'd figure out the next day.
