August 23rd, 2011 02:27 PMFairyI've always been under the impression that it was going to be a team effort to revive the CBC. And while it's true that no one person can fix it, when it comes down to it, I don't see any real way to attract new battlers. It's not like we can physically restrain/withhold water from people until they join, you know? I'm afraid that apathy plays a large role in the whole thing also. It's not that some of us "don't care" (while I'm sure some don't). But, in one way or another, we all have something better to do or are too busy to do anything. I mean, I could have rated a team.. but instead I posted a blog.
Maybe I'm just too new to the whole thing.. but I feel like the effort is, in large part, on both the receiving and giving end of things. It's so disheartening when I spend two hours rating a team and the response I get is literally, "kthxbai". -.-
August 23rd, 2011 02:15 PMExileYou're too sweet aaaa. I guess it is chance, but common interests broguth us here. And no, I really haven't, aside from Conjurer, Skippy, and Syndrome. As one Wolflare said, I think we're looking too hard for raters, and we need more battlers, which I completely agree with.
August 23rd, 2011 02:10 PMFairyI'm just not asking the right question. x.x See, this is what an unseasoned question asker sounds like. lol
But that's so sweet. Well, I'm glad. :] I've been super lucky to befriend someone like you. It's really just chance that we ended up being friends. xD I mean, what are the odds that we'd both end up at the same place at the same time, right?
But I'm sure you've seen a lot of people come and go in your time. It's sad.. the CBC is in such failing health. I have so much fun rating teams and helping people, but it just can't make up for a sheer lack of activity. I hope they can't like.. get rid of it or something. ;o;
August 23rd, 2011 01:56 PMExileOh no, I had never left xD
I was still involved and everything, but I was never on the server too much, but I eventually mustered up the courage to come be a "regular" there. x)
August 23rd, 2011 01:48 PMFairyxD Guess I should have checked your profile first. lol.
So, what made you come back to the PC?
August 23rd, 2011 01:44 PMExileI joined in 2010, and didn't start battling until late 2010/earlly 2011 [icr], so it was pretty much the same as it is now. xD
August 23rd, 2011 01:39 PMFairyAwwwww~
I figured my story would be a lot like everyone else. That's awesome that you got the chance to join the PC early on and come back with a whole new set of skills though. How was PC and the metagame back then? I've heard a lot of war stories about 2007 and prior years. A lot of stuff about PC earning a bad reputation along the way. Was it really as awesome/brutal as everyone says? Or was it just a bunch of hype?
August 23rd, 2011 01:24 PMExileHaha well I figured I'd get to know you as well and yeah, ilu too.
That's a pretty cool story, though, I remember much of the same happening to me, but I was 8. Honestly, I never thought I'd be serious about battling. I just got on the server and messed around with Live_Wire466 a bit and got excited enough to sign up for the tutoring program. I learned next to nothing, but I eventually went to battle at another forum and began to have a lot of fun doing so, then I came back to PC with my newfound skills and got embraced into the CBC Community.
August 23rd, 2011 01:19 PMFairyYA SEE! There you go again, asking questions, being interested... gosh Karpy. ilu. That's exactly why you ended up in my blog~
Well, I guess I'm just a quick learner? lol. Not really, it was you guys that allowed me to get so accustomed to this place. But to answer your question...
Pokemon was great and fun when I was 12. Everyone was into it, my parents supported it, my friends and I battled all the time. Now, I'm 20. My friends don't battle, my parents don't care. I was at a cross roads in my Pokecom career. It was either "put up" and find something bigger to do with Pokemon, or "shut up" and quit. So I figured I'd turn to the internet for some solutions to my problem. I found the PC, I found you guys, and I've been hooked ever since. <3
What about you?
August 23rd, 2011 01:04 PMExileOh man, that's crazy, I thought everyone had FB and AIM/MSN at least. You just seem so accustomed to this place, despite having joined in July. And we love you too!
How'd you get interested in competitive mons?
August 23rd, 2011 12:48 PMFairyDon't mention it! :> I meant every word of it! <3
And yup, PC's my first. ;] Never been to another forum, never downloaded an instant messenger, and I've never had facebook or anything like that. I've never had a single internet friend either, so that's why I take all this stuff so seriously. Cause I love ya'll!
August 23rd, 2011 11:34 AMExileWhoo, glad to hear you liked my sentiments. So was PC like, your first forum? lol
