• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

  • I've had it made known to me that for about a week now people haven't been able to finish registering or receive email notifications. I can imagine how frustrating this must have been, particulary for our newest members. Unfortunately our site owner is away at the moment and he most likely won't be able to do anything about it for another week or so. Until then, anyone who wants their account manually verified can contact me via their method of preference and I'll sort it for them myself. Thanks to everyone for their patience regarding this issue. -DoubleThink

  • Emails should hopefully be fixed, please let us know if they're working properly now.

  • Man, this poor avatar is much in need of rest. I actively tried to depart from being formulaic with my end of year activities, but I did neglect a few things...

    Updating now. Getting rid of my compulsion to document everything should help a lot - I'll only record avatar changes now, which is quite the step up in convenience for me. ^_^

    Also, has anyone else tried using the "set picture as avatar" option in Media? I never realized what an excellent feature that can be! :D

    A change every once in a while is refreshing.
    More than 3 years since X & Y, and my first time with a Psychic/ Fairy member of the Ralts family is a GBC game. How about that! :o

    He’s also the first male I’ve caught, incidentally, both my original champion Ash (now renamed Ardor) and the Gardevoir I randomly have in Throwback Red (Nemesis) are female. Thinking this feisty fellow may possibly end up a Gallade if Dawn Stones are lurking about, but Basil fits him either way. ^.^

    I have no idea what Nintendo's legal team is truly thinking, but it does seem in today's age that releasing things once they're finished with no build up may be the best way to go about it. If it's of good quality and derivative of a popular series, news will spread.

    I've been tempted to get into Pokémon hacking myself, but I already have enough on my plate without that kind of dabbling @.@

    Y'know, I knew the game would leak eventually, but I certainly wasn't expecting it to be the day after it was taken down. It actually got released sooner than the original release date!
    Polaris
    Polaris
    True enough, and while it’s not the /final/ final it’s final enough to be superior to any other GBC hack! I simply hope that no suspicion or legal trouble falls on the mod creator, since he legitimately doesn’t seem like the sort of person who could stomach or want to orchestrate a leak.
    I’ve spent years waiting for Pokémon Prism. Nintendo waited until 4 days before its release to issue a C&D, and this has never happened to a romhack before. good great excellent

    Somehow I know it’s going to leak anyway, so I at least get to play it at some point in the same way that I have AM2R on my computer right now, but this sort of thing gets my blood boiling more than most. >.>

    Nintendo certainly has been issuing a lot of takedown notices and C&D's this year… over 560 works now…

    I’m suddenly reminded of how much people on this forum have done to cheer me up or lift me from depression over the years. I know that some of those directly responsible will be on Skype or Discord, or otherwise not see this, but regardless. Thank you all, again. c:

    Yeah, things are looking well! I guess I do have a lot of work to take care of for this upcoming Finals Week (whereeverythingsmadeupandthepointsdontmatter) but it definitely beats worrying about them all break. -w-

    If you're one of the 1.98% of people who like reading what I write and also avoid the gallery, I'd recommend at least reading the one of a Kirlia holding hands to a Gallade and the humanish one after that since the descriptions of those are Serious Limit-Busting Semi-Relevant Moderately Heavy Nonsense! Everyone likes that, right...? ^_^;

    I fret far too much about how people see me, and one particular aspect is the things that I say I want to do/am doing with no tangible results. With that in mind, and purely to abate my neurosis a bit (some of these I’ve never mentioned here)...

    It is, yes.

    I just noticed that timestamps don’t seem to be included on these, at least on the mobile version, so it’s worth noting that these were written at 5 in the morning following the candidacy announcement. I’m not happy about the President-elect, but I don’t believe that the apocalypse is upon us or that we can’t get through this - and maybe even come out better in ways - as a country. And hey, even if we are deported? Mexico is a beautiful place with a future, too.

    Hardship helps us learn, you mean? Yeah, that's a nice way to look at things and be positive.
    The whole world, or at least our area, is going crazy over the Cubs winning the world series for the first time in a century. I'm not really a sports fan, but it's still quite invigorating to feel so much common interest in it - someone in every classroom was discussing it, half the students were late due to staying up for the final game, and there's even a dedicated parade. It's nice. c:

    Well, I've had on and off periods, like anything else...it's usually not too hard to continue since writing is fun, though. :>
    I spent a little time helping with the ongoing Twitch Plays Pokémon Prism and giving some encouragement to the Legion (they're actually helping to find bugs the way only a few hundred players can). There's some surprisingly nice people there, I'm usually quite wary of Twitch chats. c:

    Understandable honestly, I agree. And thats really good to hear, I'm glad you're doing well! And yeah appreciate it now, I can say from experience that thats true, enjoy it.

    Im in a interesting place again. I'm in the process of recovering from other events, non-catastrophic to my social life this time but more to my own health. I'm getting by at least.

    Thank you, it's appreciated, and yeah, they can be the worst. Sleep deprivation is terrible, working 30 and a half hours messed up my sleeping schedule badly and led to other things.
    For those who for some reason want to know but have ceased checking (and check here???), I'm doing Gallery uploads again after a two month """""break"""""! Who am I kidding, I just want to restore some shaky trust because I've been constantly screwing up for the past year or two. I imagine it's a bit exhausting, being my friend, given how exhausting it is to keep renewing. Don't have another path.

    I think you're being too hard on yourself. Just because you leave for a bit and come back, doesn't mean that you have to "renew" with anyone. I mean, you are basically the face of the CSTSF after all (according to google); I doubt anyone has forgotten you.

    You don't need to exhaust yourself by keeping up with everything if you don't want to.

    I played the first level of Lovely Planet blind on camera! Luckily for you, you're never seeing it because my laptop can't handle even 30 FPS smoothly and for some reason a little bit of the right side of the window was cut off even though the capture was supposed to be my entire screen. At least it wasn't commented on, so you're really not missing much. :o

    All of the text you get from shooting baddies is in Japanese, and not very many of the mechanics are outright told to you, so I don't really understand how some of it works and don't care to waste the blindness by going off to check the inevitable wiki, but it's still very fun in that frustrating Groove Coaster way where you restart levels over and over again until you go through them mostly perfectly. :3

    That's what I thought too! So on Tuesday and throughout the week I used a bit more than my usual plenty and dried my hair in a different way, and it's been working out a lot more somehow. Maybe it's the extra amount, maybe it's the drying method, I'm doing both because okay hair is a rare and precious blessing. :3

    That aside, it always makes me happy when people I haven't seen in a while are doing well. ^.^
    It's official, everyone: everything the McElroy brothers touch turns to solid gold. Even if you're not into the podcast format of My Brother, My Brother and Me, Griffin shows up in the incredible Polygon shows Monster Factory and Car Boys. Go have a look if you're searching for comedy!
