Happy April Fools' Day!

On April 1st, 2012, the Team Fortress Wiki followed its April Fools' Day tradition. We hope you enjoyed the event!

The entire thing was completely unplanned; the idea and its realization all took place in our IRC channel from March 31st, 13:45 to release on April 1st, 2 AM (GMT-5).
