Oh dear! If our current version of the "Continuously Learning Integrated Platform Processing Yielder" is not functioning properly on your end, please use the "Disable C.L.I.P.P.Y." at the bottom of any wiki page. If you happen to be multi-lingual, I should warn you of the recent cooo which occurred on our French wiki :anguished: .

I blocked the wiki after I figured out where the noise comes from. Not a really good April's fool in my opinion, but no damage being done either.

edit: So I found it weird that the wiki admin who added clippy thought it's fitting April's Fool Day and tried to figure out why. Turns out it's a cultural difference! In Germany, you don't prank people on April's Fool Day, you tell fake stories and hoaxes and try to mislead someone into believing something that's not true. In the US, pranks are part of April's Fool Day, so Clippy on the wiki totally works there. The more you know...

The wiki (not actually run
by
ANet) has always run its own April Fools jokes separately from the game.For the game, remember that ANet offices hasn't opened for the day yet.

True, and I doubt they will open today anyway but they haven't really done anything for april fools for a few years.

The first April Fools in GW1 in 07 we logged in to find our gender had changed in towns (my ranger turned into an ugly bald male)......the 2nd year we we're all stick figures which drove everyone nuts in pvp.......Kind of hard to top those 2. Well done on Clippy Anet, glad to see the humor pushes on!!

I liked the one where the minis were huge and we were miniature.

Yeah, I was in the middle of W2Z3 Trib when I started hearing the noises and I was like...did the sounds get corrupted or perhaps there's some kind of video playing on another tab I'm not aware of?

I check the wiki for something and I see him there. Well played, Anet. Well played.

It is cute.

As for who added it, at the top of the page it says...

Welcome to the official Guild Wars 2 Wiki, the comprehensive reference written and maintained by the players.
