The DCC Rules - Read now~ (http://www.pkmncommunity.com/showthread.php?t=85143) Srsly, read them. Or I will get Kon (the teddy in my sig) to eat you up. Alright?

Not too original with the title, but I didn't feel like using my few remaining brain cells to think up of a good one. >:

Now post! (No spam pls) <3

Yep!

It's May for me tomorrow, but that's cool ;D I'm so happy May is finally here, because that means it's my last month of school <33

The year went by fast, but too much homework D:

Wow, this month is going to be busy.

My exams are coming up now then afterthat I will have my holidays.
I dont have exams till the end of the year... but I do have a whole lot of tests and assessments this term....

Hakeen

XD, well I didn't ignore you now.

This month is going to be busy for me. Unlike you, I have more on this term then last term, which will result to a busier time and less computer time definetly. Like how I already have two internal assessments tomorrow and it's only the second week of this term!!

Hakeen
April 30th, 2007, 11:36 PM
Only 'cause I told you not to. XD

We have lots of assignments, but, Sunday night is when I try and do all of them for the week, and then I don't have to be kicked off the computer for no reason.

And also because my family doesn't even know when I have homework half the time. XD

Yeah, exactly what MegaFuz said. Make sure you read the rules before posting in here again as those other two posts aren't exactly helpful to the current discussion either. ^^;
And also because my family doesn't even know when I have homework half the time. XD
Hah, you're like my friend. He never tells his parents he's got homework and then when they go in for parents evening they're like, "What homework? O_o" and then he gets into trouble. XD

My mum knows when I've got homework because I usually leave my planner lying about. x_x

Hakeen
April 30th, 2007, 11:45 PM
My teachers aren't like that..they don't backstab me. They leave all homework discussion to a minimum at parent things.

We don't have planners. We have these succky little school diaries we have to bring everyday or we have detention.

My host parents are coming to this school thing where parents sit in on a class. So I guess I can't sleep.

And sorry to say something that stems off, but I did just get English Pearl and I am so excited.

Ok, so yeah. Teachers. Conferences. They can be vicious.

Amachi
May 1st, 2007, 03:46 AM
DDD: I've got parent teacher meetings coming up in a few weeks. I suppose I don't have much to worry about, but I don't like the fact that we are given our report there, which takes away my time to fabricate a string of excuses and the like.

Plus it means that I'll be spending an hour or so at school if we go see every teacher ;_;

Good luck with your conferences Paul XD;;

Kawaii: I think he means the same thing by planner XD

Oh, and I'm probably getting Diamond version in a week or so. However, that doesn't really matter since I'm also getting Jump! Ultimate Stars, which is like awesomex10 :DDD

One time my teacher started crying at my conference. She felt I was a very good student. That was one of the most embarrassing things that has happened to me.

I asked Matt previously about it.
And he's had brain loss since then, so yeah.

Amachi
May 1st, 2007, 04:54 AM
A liar would obviously say
I'm so not a liar~
So how do I know that you aren't lying now?

... reminds me of that riddle with the two paths ... or something XD

Hakeen
May 1st, 2007, 05:03 AM
Just because I'm a liar, I'm not the other two things..or am I.


You know I'm not lying this time because.....
If I lied, I would have said.
"I'm so not a liar"
And then added a strikethrough in that post.
Or I would have said something stupid with it..like, "I'm so not a liar because I'm so beautiful" Or.. something like that.
So, finally, away from all this lying, Would you believe that I nearly spelt beautiful with a ck on the end. XD

School...meh. At least there's only another month or so of it for most of the people on here, then comes summer...

Anyway, if I may change the subject, what does everyone think about the two major movies due to come out this month, Shrek the Third &, arguably more importantly, Spider Man 3?

MegaFuz
May 1st, 2007, 08:55 AM
Can't wait for Spider-Man 3! I watched the 2nd movie again last night and it got me really excited for the new one.

I just wish they'd show more of Venom in the previews available. The way I understand it, he'll be a pretty big part in the movie, yet there've been no good shots of Venom to this point. Oh well...it actually just makes me even more eager to see it. XD

Legacy
May 1st, 2007, 10:51 AM
Spider-Man 3 should be awesome, I've been looking forward to it ever since I watched the second one at the cinema.

MegaFuz
May 1st, 2007, 10:57 AM
Obviously you're looking forward to the new movie. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. ;D

*points to Legacy's theme*

Lt. Surge's Raichu
May 1st, 2007, 11:15 AM
Well, i guess i'm also looking forward ti spider man 3, though i haven't seen the second movie yet, lol, i am not a big spider man fan

MegaFuz
May 1st, 2007, 11:27 AM
It might be a good idea to rent the 2nd before going to see the 3rd. Just maybe... XD

She-Elf
May 1st, 2007, 11:31 AM
I'm not a spider man fan, I have seen the first movie, I don't think I have seen number 2, but I'm looking forward to number 3, I will maybe see it after I have seen number 2.

Yeah, havn't seen you around recently, Iced. PC has definitely undergone some major changes lately, mainly in terms of Staff.

Forci Stikane
May 1st, 2007, 02:17 PM
I personally can't wait to see either movie. Spider-Man 3 should be GOOD, now that they're finally adding Venom to the mix. Of course, since we've got the "new" Green Goblin, Venom, AND at least one other villain in the movie, it'll undoubtedly be longer than usual. Two hours, perhaps?

And Shrek...well, is Shrek. Enough said.

Persona
May 1st, 2007, 03:18 PM
Hey ppl! whats up w/ all these new changes like "Chld Forums"? but w/e. O yeah where's the new shiny hunter's thread? (srry 4 off-topic)

Here? (http://pkmncommunity.com/showthread.php?t=19247)

That thread has been running on for quite awhile, so it really isn't the 'new thread'.

Yeah, though not by much that'll confuse you. Hopefully.

You have no idea how much I missed you. XD

Arcanine
May 1st, 2007, 03:49 PM
Shrek the Third and Spider-Man 3 I both want to see. XD
But I'm looking forward to Shrek more, mainly because I got the first two movies and I only got Spider-Man 2 (but I have seen the first). But both are on my to watch list.

Amachi

Yes.

Probably XD;;

Anywho, I cannot wait to see Spiderman , hence why I am watching it tomorrow night ^o^

As for Shrek 3 ... I dunno. I certainly won't go pay to see it in the cinema's though, that's for sure. To me, the first Shrek is a classic - the second one wasn't all that great in comparison.

I don't see what's so great about the Spiderman series, I couldn't get into the first on or the second one =P Of course, all my friends are making plans to see it though XDD

I agree with you on the Shrek thing though. The first one will always be the best <3

So true. The first Shrek was far far better then the second. Not only on the story but the funnyness to it. I was laughing my head off for the whole movie, but Shrek 2 wasn't as funny as the first.

I've loved Spiderman ever since I was like, 5 or 6, so even if the movies were crap, I'd still watch them.

However, there are a whole bunch of reasons why people like the series, but let's not get into that now k? XD;

Actually, let's see: He's your average teenager, so everyone can relate to him in a way. Unlike other superhero's he isn't fortunate enough to have money ... or the support of most of New York. He's light hearted, so it's nice to have a lil laugh while he's fighting. And he has an awesome suit :D

And your friends are cool - why aren't you as cool as them? :P

The first Shrek is awesome. I haven't watched it in a while though. And you're right Andy, it's much funnier than the second. Oh, and how mad is the "Shrek in the swamp, karaoke dance party"? XDDD

Um excuse me, I'm cool and they're the ones who aren't. >=O

D: My brother did that as well. For seriously about a week straight, I was getting so annoyed with it that I thought I'd end up hating the movie. But of course, we went quite some time without seeing it and I liked it again =D

Stupid??? Movies are so not stupid. They are the entertainment of this modern society. Apart from the Internet of course~ XD

Interactivity at the movies going with your friends.
The internet may seem better because it's got a wider range of places and activities to do on it.

hehehe, not really XD I just likes the series, that's all =]

Not really. Superman is an alien. Batman (as awesome as he is) is just some rich kid, and so on. Spiderman is just like every other teenager really, facing problems at school, with girls ... and crime fighting ^^;

no them

Yeah, like Andy said it's probably best every now and then XD;

Shrek is a good movie, but have you seen Bridge to Terabithia? And my messenger's being screwy. It won't let me send you a message. >_>
I wanna see Bridge to Terabithia!! I read it in year 6, and it was a nice lil book :(

Tobey Maguire plays a good Spiderman, but I wish Spiderman didn't play the bad guy. ;;
He's not so much the bad guy, he's just more angry and violent thanks to the suit. There's plenty of other villains in the series without needing him as another one XD

All you people who have jumped onto the Spider-Man bandwagon should do extremely well to read the original comic books.
I hardly see how liking a movie is a similar to jumping onto a bandwagon.

I actually don't care to read 25 year old material. The movies are easier for me.

Well, I haven't read that many of the comics, but I really like the more recent material, specially from the 90's

....Yeah I think they should lay off the spiderman movies now...they are already discussing #4 in entertainment news...
That's cause Spiderman is awesome. And heck, if it makes money, then why not? XD;

Not everything in life is about posting Nica. XD
There are far more things to do out and about then post in the DCC all the time.

Lmao... you could just go by yourself, or you could go to a friend's house.
Time with friends isnt restricted to going to the cinema...

Movie theatres definitely have a cool feel that no other place captures when you want to watch a movie. At least for me. But in Japan, it's so expensive I don't enjoy going as much in the US, although ironically, I probably see movies more over here now.

Yeah, that's the only thing that makes me think twice about going to the movies - how much it costs. So I don't go all that often either, just cause seeing a movie can force me to shell out 20 dollars :(

I think it's crazy Toys R Us overtook FAO Schwartz as the main toy store in New York City. FAO Schwartz was one of the biggest attractions in NYC, but now it's just not what it used to be. The last time I was there I was highly disappointed. I think I remember hearing that they almost went bankrupt and had to change owners/the style of the store. Now it's all high-end toys. I can't imagine they're doing better now though. Who goes into a toy store planning to drop hundreds of dollars on a toy or two? Unless it's electronics, that is...but I don't believe they even sell electronics anymore. =\ I remember back in the day when I went there, FAO was always packed. I just don't get it...

Battling in Pokemon games can definitely get redundant. It's never been my main interest in the game though. My main interest is collecting all the different species, training, and creating the best possible team I can make. Battling is only really fun for me if I'm playing against friends and whatnot.

Oh...and of course following the story-line is always fun. XD

Legacy
May 3rd, 2007, 11:26 AM
I haven't played Diamond/Pearl yet so I can't comment on them, but the storyline in previous Pokémon games has been extremely weak, particular the Colour/Metal generations, and the Jewel generation wasn't much better, either.

That's something the franchise has always lacked; an involving storyline and variety in gameplay. They can put more bells and whistles on it if they want, but it's still just about beating eight gym leaders followed by the Elite4.

I was kinda hoping the new games would change all of that but, by all accounts I've heard so far, it hasn't.

Cherrim

Nnnnope. It got a bit interesting and the "plot" picked up between the sixth and seventh gym. So I'm all psyched to do it, and then they're like "YOU CAN'T GO HERE TILL YOU BEAT THIS GYM 8DDD" so I gave up for a few days. XD; Not to mention it took forever to GET to the next gym. <_<;;

I think it would be quite interesting if the Pokemon franchise came out with a more mature line of games. All in all, Pokemon has been aimed at a younger age group. With a good amount of older fans who have followed the franchise since the days of R/B/Y, I think there would be a great chance of success there. Then again, I doubt the creators would want to do anything that would sacrifice the large following of younger fans.

Definitely. Wi-fi is what makes D/P attractive. Simple as that.

Heck no. Heh, I really don't even see the point in "catching 'em all". At least after the first generation anyway. I just focused on improving my team as much as possible, and catching the species that appeal to me the most.

Yeah, I was so disappointed with that plaque in Red. I was expecting something a lot more exciting. I guess that played a big part in me having no motivation to complete the Dex in any of the other games. As far as Mew in the Japanese version goes, I'm not too sure. I thought the only way to get Mew was at an event or with GameShark. You could be right though...

Personally, I think that this game has much longer routes. I don't remember any of the games taking this long to get from gym to gym, or so many little things to complete before you can access a certain area.


When I first got the game, I didn't want to play it that much. But now I've gotten really sucked in and spent like 40 minutes constructing what my future team should be based on stats and stuff.

So yeah, little bit interesting to me. A lot interesting. Whatever.

EDIT: I hate the new pokedex that rewards you for simply seeing a Pokemon. Catching isn't stressed enough IMO. It's kind of pathetic.

Cherrim
May 3rd, 2007, 04:12 PM
Yeah, I was really surprised after like...two hours in, I'd already recorded something like 40 in my Pokédex when I hadn't even caught 6 Pokémon. I mean, I guess it's a little better since I never end up catching anything after the first little while in a Pokémon game (I get into the mindset of "oh, I'll come back for this Pokémon later when I'm completing the 'dex")...but it IS a little disappointing. Seems too easy. :\

Diamond isn't a let down to me, it's just I wish it was a little more plot filled (even for a Pokemon game it's sort of weak). But other then that, I love it. I have already beaten 4 Gyms, all my Pokemon are level 38-40, and I have 90 hours put on it (yes, all three are off. I shouldn't be only 4 Gyms in, have Pokemon within the 6th or 7th Gym range, and for all them hours I should be way way ahead XD).
My thing right now is online battles/trades. I just love the Wi-Fi battles and trades. I beat so and so and lose to so and so in battles, I get Pokemon from my friends in trades (like Erica sent me over a Pichu today XD). I just find that fun and the main reason why I got Diamond.

I agree, some parts of the game seems much longer than any of the previous ones. Whether it's the 3D-ish effect making that, I dont know but some towns seem so far away.

XD, it's just not challenging enough. The intro/save file entry states that I have 230 or so Pokemon in my Pokedex when I really have aroun 130.

I wished they had added an extra storyline to the game, like after the E4 and beating everything on the North-Eastern Island...

They need more fire Pokemon, for sure. Never thought I'd end up using a Ponyta in any Pokemon game, but guess what I'm stuck with! Chimchar is just too ugly for me to use. That second form looks like a clown.

Personally though, I like when people join you for a short stretch. It's kind of cool having a partner to battle with. It makes the game a bit more interesting, although you're almost invincible with them healing your Pokemon.

Just a tip for beginners, the abra you can get from a NPC if you give them a machop can grow really fast. And kadabra comes in handy.

Taht was one of my favourite parts of GSC. After you were done with Johto, it was just a short jaunt to Kanto and you could do it all over again. I loved that. T_T; I wish they'd bring something like that back to the series. I didn't see those islands in FR as enough to make me beat the game so apparently I never did. (Thought I did, though. XD)

Anyway, I also agree with the fire Pokémon thing. I'm just stopping altogether today until David trades me a Houndour sometime tonight. <_<; I'm sick of not having a fire Pokémon, I hate the monkey thing, and I've never cared for Ponyta. So I might as well just raise something I like, since I planned it for my final team anyway. :|

Those double battles are awesome though. XD That's how I raised my Magikarp the last 5 levels to Gyarados at the beginning of the game. Just let Chansey do all the work and heal me after. xD

The flying Pokemon I'm looking forward to is definitely Mothim at the moment, it really impressed me with the moveset you can get on it at the end.

I'm going to complete the 'Dex on my Pearl game, since I have Diamond, Emerald, Ruby, and LeafGreen to back me up. Just to do it once, y'know? I've always wanted to.

EDIT: I hate the new pokedex that rewards you for simply seeing a Pokemon. Catching isn't stressed enough IMO. It's kind of pathetic.

I like it, actually. To be honest, I hated filling up the Pokédex for access to some of the islands in FRLG. I don't like filling up the Pokédex the majority of the time. I'd rather just catch what I need to beat the game.

I'm doing more catching than I usually do right now. Part of it is curiousity, and part of it is I don't know what I want for a team. I want to get rid of some of my Pokémon, but I haven't a clue what to switch yet.

Taht was one of my favourite parts of GSC. After you were done with Johto, it was just a short jaunt to Kanto and you could do it all over again. I loved that. T_T; I wish they'd bring something like that back to the series. I didn't see those islands in FR as enough to make me beat the game so apparently I never did. (Thought I did, though. XD)

Anyway, I also agree with the fire Pokémon thing. I'm just stopping altogether today until David trades me a Houndour sometime tonight. <_<; I'm sick of not having a fire Pokémon, I hate the monkey thing, and I've never cared for Ponyta. So I might as well just raise something I like, since I planned it for my final team anyway. :|

Those double battles are awesome though. XD That's how I raised my Magikarp the last 5 levels to Gyarados at the beginning of the game. Just let Chansey do all the work and heal me after. xD

How about a GSC remake? 8D *shot*
It was fun, even though Kanto was really short. It was stripped compared to what it was in the RBY days. :/ A proper two-region game would be kind of fun, actually. Of course, that'd mean more work for the developers, so it probably won't happen.

Hm, there is quite a lack, huh? But then again, I'm not using a Fire Pokémon right now, so it doesn't bother me.

I didn't use the double battles to my advantage. I just wanted to get out of the places as fast as I could. :/ And it was irritating when I had a crappy Pokémon out and it'd take forever to knock the Pokémon out. That was my fault though. XD

It would have been kool for it to be down for a week again.

The DBE message is more comforting than it loading slow. XD

Do you think so? I really don't.
When it's loading slow you kinda have a hope for it to load.
With the database error there is no chance

Hakeen
May 5th, 2007, 03:47 PM
DBE's are better only because after a certain amount of refreshings, they don't display DBE anymore, and loading is a little faster, than just no DBE. If you made sense of that....good. XD

On a good note..my theme uploaded..yay. XD
Took long enough to upload.

Lt. Surge's Raichu
May 5th, 2007, 03:49 PM
Well, i can see what you mean.
I have noticed that too. After the DBE the server is so much faster in loading. After a while it gets slower and slower and then it stops, then DBE again. It's an evil circle xD

Hakeen

I believe that some of the worst things that DBEs can do is get people to leave permanently, as few people did. That person could be a good friend. Yeah. Another thing is that it could get you to double post and people would jump down your throat. Too much DBEs=too much double posts=warning...

We don't warn people for accidental double posts. If that were the case, there'd be a lot of people with warnings right now. xD Besides, it'd be wrong to warn people for the site's problems.
I don't know about most mods, but I usually just delete the spare and move on with life. I don't know if members make it a big deal or not though. From what I've seen, that isn't the case. :/

Ugh. I just went back and read that little conversation on Page 7 about the DBE and people leaving for that reason. It's a a real shame so many people have become inactive because of them. I guess I try not to worry about it too much, but I do miss a lot of older members. That said, it is a forum and members should be expected to come and go. I guess it just hurts a lot more to know that a few dollar signs and a new server are the only things that stand in the way of PC reverting back to how it was a year or so ago. It also hurts to know that people let a little downtime stand in the way of their love for PC and its members...

Lt. Surge's Raichu

Megafuz: I totally agree with you. But i think that most of the members are loyal to the PokeCommunity and still keep coming here. The DBE is surely annoying but i don't see it as a reason for stop coming here. I love this place and could never let something like that destroy it.

The thing is, though, not everyone loves this forum enough to stick out the constant, annoying DB errors. Especially people who are members at other forums that do run properly. Why put up with the hassle and frustration of one forum when you can have an easy time posting at another forum?

And it's gonna take a hell of a lot more than a stable server for PC to return to anywhere near its former glory. This place is a shadow of what it used to be and, unfortunately, that's how it's gonna stay.

I'm afraid to say that you're correct about that, Dawsy. The DB errors almost made me give up on PC more than one way or another. Refreshing isn't going to work. And the DBs can last anywhere from a few minutes to days, as proven last time and last year.

I find this annoying, but unless PC moves to a new server or whatever, we have to deal with the interruption of the DBs >>;

Indeed. I, too, have noticed the decline in the forum. As depressing it is to admit, it's mostly due to the hype of Pokemon Diamond & Pearl and all the people it's sending online. Unfortunately for us, most of these people not only fail to contribute in other areas, but don't even seem to understand the rules (as evident by all the multiple-posting that goes on there). I'm one of the only maybe FOUR veteran members that actually goes over there, and most of the others have 0 post counts due to their lack of posting elsewhere. It's so sad...Add to that the stress placed on the server by all the posters, and...maybe it was a bad idea to open up an easily-accessable Trading Post...

Well, I believe active Moderators would help that situation out a lot, cutting back on spam and such. Heck...I look at the list of Moderators and some of them I havn't seen online in months. If you aren't going to do your job the right way, you should at least have the decency to step down like Lightning and Ryotaro did to let someone else step in. Mind you, I'm not referring to all Mods with that statement. I'm well aware certain individuals do more than their share of work.

One thing to remember when you don't see mods online is that quite a few of them are set to invisible mode, so only other staff members can see them online. But, you are right, though, a few mods could do with quitting/being replaced as there are some inactive ones and some that just don't have enough work to warrant that mod spot.

And there are some people who are deserving of promotions. Signomi, in my opinion, should've been an SMod before FG and Jeremy. With all due respect to both of them, as they have been staff for a long ass time, but when they were promoted, neither of them were incredibly active or had massive mod logs, whereas Siggy is always on.

And you should be in contention for a mod offer should Ashley ever quit. My money was on either you or Matt to replace me as DCC mod.

I did take that into consideration, but as you said...a certain few just aren't cutting it.

I'd have to agree with you there. Signomi does a fantastic job here. FG and Jeremy are great too, but I'd have to say Siggy would have been a better choice for promotion. Then again...we are more under-staffed than we have been in a long time here, especially when it comes to Administrators and SMs. I personally think they all could have been promoted. Just look at the numbers...3 current SAs compared to the 4 we used to have...3 current AAs compared to 4 in the past, and 3 SMs compared to the 5 we used to have.

Heh...we'll see, I guess. Matt's been more active in the DCC than I have overall, so I think he deserved the position.

Indeed. I, too, have noticed the decline in the forum. As depressing it is to admit, it's mostly due to the hype of Pokemon Diamond & Pearl and all the people it's sending online. Unfortunately for us, most of these people not only fail to contribute in other areas, but don't even seem to understand the rules (as evident by all the multiple-posting that goes on there). I'm one of the only maybe FOUR veteran members that actually goes over there, and most of the others have 0 post counts due to their lack of posting elsewhere. It's so sad...Add to that the stress placed on the server by all the posters, and...maybe it was a bad idea to open up an easily-accessable Trading Post...

Everytime I look down "New posts" I always find that over half come from the D/P trading/battling part of the forum. There's a lot of activity in there recently with the game's release. But if that's causing all of the major recent database errors... it's just plain annoying.

Dont mind if I change to some sort of discussion. I just read an article about a Supernova occurring back when the dinosaurs were around and how the light has only just reached telescopes here.

Of course you do.

They must have, or in some form. Their remanants show that. Otherwise, where did all their bones come from??? They must have come from somewhere to start with.

You can't expect the "cave" people to have recorded the sightings down. Dinosaurs would have been common back then, plus if I remember correctly, dinosaurs actually were on the planet and wiped out before human form existed. Also, they have said that the pre-historic homosapiens actually had a bigger brain capacity then current humans do, which meant that they may have had a bigger brain which could have also given them bigger memories.

Wtf?? Matured people. Where did that come from?

Look around in a museum or a place that currently keeps dinosaur bones. Where did they come from? I think the term is Archaeologist (sp?) went, and dug up those bones out of the ground. And using scientific methods (i.e. carbon dating) they worked out how long ago the bones came from.

This will turn into a Religion vs Science discussion...
I think there are better things to do, then making specific details within bones and then planting these "easter eggs" all over the world when other evidence suggests otherwise.

Hakeen
May 8th, 2007, 01:06 AM
My brain. XD
But the scientists methods may not always be correct, who knows, everything in life might not be the correct way it was meant to be.

But...fine, when I die..I'll try and find out why those bones are there, and why they didn't come from God's boredom one day. But I find that weird aswell..where God came from..and how he was born.

You could say that, but judging by the huge amount of work and evidence that they have already, it should technically be very accurate by now.
Well, there's a meaning to everything apparently, and that will lead out to some sort of thing being correct and fit it a logistical pattern of a sort.

Alright then... you tell me in the future.

Hakeen
May 8th, 2007, 01:15 AM
But like, I mean..did the methods the scientists use, was that what God wanted..like, maybe that's why there is global warming and that. Maybe, God had something planned out that people should do, and he/she didn't have no control.

I'm sure none of you want me blabbing on about God though. XD

Yeah, exactly. And if that's the problematic area of PC that's been causing the more frequent DBEs, something really needs to be done there.

I don't see this as being one simple problem though. It's a combination of various different issues. For one, as I already pointed out, PC has the least amount of Moderators that it's had in a long, long, time. (Just an example; 4 Staff Administrators now down to 3, 4 Assistant Administrators now down to 3, and 5 Super Moderators now down to 3...) Then you've got the inactivity of certain Moderators which certainly doesn't help. On top of all that there's the massive influx of new, young, inexperienced members that have come with the interest in D/P. All that adds up to create a plethora of DBEs, driving off a good amount of veteran, experienced members which we desperately need around. Not a good situation at all...

Currently, however, some moderators are taking time away from PC, like me, for example, due to finals and such coming up. Hopefully when the summer comes 'round things'll start to straighten out and we might get more activity here.

Yeah, the database errors are causing a lot of members to give up with PC altogether, but I can't say I blame them completely. I mean, I think it's stupid when people go "OMG, I'M LEAVING FOREVA" but I can understand why people aren't as frequent posting due to it.

Annyway, let's try and talk about something other than about PC itself. It's getting repetitive...

Agreed.

...Really? I joined about when Emerald came out, so I wouldn't know...huh. Though...I'm not sure that analogy quite fits. Diamond/Pearl aren't the same as Ruby & Sapphire, mainly because of one factor: Wi-Fi. With that in the mix, I'm not very confident of this getting better without somebody MAKING it get better.

......And I'm not so sure those h-staff can do it alone. Take a look at what's been going on there if you don't believe me. We've got quadruple posts, pointless off-topic semi-discussions, and......some of the worst beatings on the English language that I've seen on here.
