Oh glob! We survived the apocalypse!
And let's celebrate since today is also my 2nd PCVersary!
Well, let me tell you my 2 fruitful years before we pop the champagne.
On December 22, 2010, a soon to be PC member clicked the Register link. He filled up the necessary fields and typed "gunnerpow7" on the Username part. And that's when gunnerpow7 was introduced to the world of PC.
Unfortunately, he was also lured into the community just because he wanted to download Pokemon Hacks in the Emulation section. After he did that, he was never seen again... Until, this.
On 8:45 pm, February 23, 2011, 2 months after joining, this member finally posted his first post. It was an historical day for this little member. After that, he was posting in places like Pokemon Trivia, Hacks Showcase, and Pokemon Clubs, which was then called Pokemon Groups.
It was in Pokemon Clubs where he posted his very first thread, on March 21, 2011, 8:11 pm.
Out of the members it had, one member stood out, aside from me. She would become (or is iirc) the moderator of NU/W of that time, Meganium90, or who we know now as Leaf Storm.
Unfortunately, that club didn't last long as tradegy struck for me. Around April, I found myself having trouble accessing PC. It seems our good PC Site Admin, Rukario, blocked the IP I was using. I talked to him using PC's Twitter (if he is really the one using it since idk) and found out that the IP is blocked since it was frequented by spammers. Since I am using a rotating IP (trust me idek what that means) and can't have a static one, I'm left with no access to PC for 6 months.
Around late October 2011, I find myself clicking the PC link on my bookmarks. Even though I knew I would get the same message, I clicked the link anyways. I was shocked since the index page loaded!
So I was back posting. At that time, I was made aware of this girl of whom I've never knew. This would turn out to be one of my besties, which is Hikari10.
On November 8, 2011, at 9:11 pm, I opened another club, dedicated to my favorite Pokemon of all time, Bellossom;
At the time of its opening, two users signed up, a fellow Filipino, Taposa, and our great Pokemon Clubs (then Pokemon Groups) Moderator, AlexOzzyCake, which he wasn't then.
A few days later, I learned that AlexOzzyCake finally got his banhammer and got promoted.
Skipping ahead to 2012, In the Black and White section, this crazy little moderator, who would also turn out to be my besties, Forever, posted a contest in which to celebrate the Black 2 and White 2 crazes.
The Unova Springs Back!
There was one contest that stood out for me. It was the speculation contest. And up-for-grabs was... a PC Blog. So I entered. There were many people battling it out to get the coveted blog. In the end, I stood out along with another member, Bluerang1. It took me days before I was able to use my blog.
Now, we skip ahead to late April 2012. After the craze with Lerroux, I finally focused on another event which piqued my interest.
Supporter Vouchers were up for grabs this time so I joined.
It was tough, searching 80 eggs + another 10 eggs hidden by PPN. At the end there were already people getting all of the eggs and I was stuck at 88.
Another PC memory there was when I first entered the IRC! And that's also where I first truly met Nica (aka Forever). She was giving the results of the egg hunt and found out that, I got first place (Getting the highest # of eggs not counting getting it all) with Toujours, a fellow friend.
So, I got that sleek, blue, italicized username, that blue bar, and finally introduced as a Tier 4 member!
Now, with 520 posts, 30 blog entries, 2 PC years, This Bellossom-loving, IRC chatter, PC blogger, Adventurer, gunnerpow7 is ready to tackle his last year before he becomes a PC Veteran! So... PEACE YO!
Special Mention to: Avishka, AlexOzzyCake, Forever, Laugh, MidnightShine, Hikari10 as without you guys, none of this would be possible.
