Fact of the day

From Diablo 2 Wiki

The Diablo II Fact of the Day, or FotD, was a main page feature that ran on from 1999-2006. New "facts" were posted semi-daily (usually 3-5 a week), and the facts were quick, two or three sentence notes about some aspect of the game, usually with a tiny thumbnail image and a link to a page with more information. The facts covered a wide variety of game features, including skills, monsters, commands, short strategy points, and more. Each year on April Fools a fake FotD was posted, sometimes with an explanation the next day; explanations that were frequently missed by overeager or gullible fans, occasionally leading to small panics amidst the low-information players who frequented the forums.

The FotDs were all archived after they were posted, and can now be viewed in this wiki, grouped by month and year.

FotDs became a popular feature on other gaming sites, and were seen on Hellgate: London, World of Warcraft, and other gaming sites. FotDs may return to The Unofficial Site for Diablo III.
