As much as I'm sad to see SPC go, it seems it's for the best. I do feel like I should get some of the blame for the lackluster activity over there the past several months. I remember posting quite a lot over there back when I was new to EGC, seeming to me like it was the place to be. Not to mention I barely knew you even existed before I joined EGC.
I love that Shiny Mega Ampharos avvy. I once thought it was strange that regular Ampharos, the first time I saw it when Generation II was being introduced, looked nothing like its pre-evolutions (due to having no wool).
