Hey, Janna! Your signature pic doesn't have a transparent background. pkmn.net sprites have a white background on them, so the pic looks a little odd on dark forum skins. The sprites from Bulbapedia work better.
good lord though, you stick out so much in my eyes and I respect you a ton, especially as a higher staff member. May not mean much but I just wanted to let you know. I hope everything will get better for you. :(!
