You are free to work on whatever you want as long as it follows the rules.

Important: Unlike previous events, if no ongoing effort is made towards the actual event, it will be postponed. Acceptable ideas may be considered for future events, but please keep in mind that a collaborative effort is necessary to make the April Fools' event happen.

Please see our previous events to get a sense of what we're looking for:

Update procedure

The April Fools' Day event will begin at 00:00 UTC+0 on April 1st and terminate at 00:00 UTC+0 on April 2nd.

On April 1st (UTC+0):

  • Editors: Move April Fools' content to the main namespace.
  • Staff: Publish any YouTube videos and related content.
  • Staff: Update protected pages, e.g. {{Updates}}, {{Trending topics}}

On April 2nd (UTC+0):

Acceptable content

The following is allowed:

  • Original content
  • Steam Workshop content
    • Items from the Steam Workshop are only accepted with the creator's express consent.
    • To avoid concerns of bias, Workshop items should either be original (created for this event and then published on the Workshop) or at least 5 years old.
  • Content based on other Valve games
  • Content based on third-party media (case by case) - Fake promotional items are allowed as long as they're not direct copies of the originals and do not put us or Valve in legal trouble.
  • Off-wiki content (update pages, playable TF2 content, videos, fan-games etc.)
