    Thanks all for participating in this years april fools!
    It was a last minute job for us, but I'm glad you all enjoyed it (and if you didn't, where's your sense of humor?).

    For the ones that did not get the references:
    The Dark Judges are villains from the Judge Dredd-comic books. All renames were based on the Dark Judges, the ("good") Judges and the Judge Dredd-universe (the Dark Judges only consist of 4 judges* so there's not much to work with for an entire community).
    If you want to read more about the Dark Judges and Judge Dredd, check these links:
    http://judgedredd.wikia.com/wiki/Dark_Judges
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Judges
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Dredd
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_(2000_AD)

    I prefer to keep the april fools jokes contained to april fools and not bloat the already big author pane with more unnecessary stuff.
