    Man, those responses. You know, there's a stronger anti-vet undercurrent at PC than you'd think, start going through the blogs, you'll find one in particular that's pretty shocking toward the middle of last month.

    More on this subject later.

    Nope. I've also been reminded that the section just died off, too.

    VMs are a bit less public, and posts didn't count in member fanclubs anyway, and you can have more mature discussions in VMs as opposed to posts because they can be buried so easily by just posting more VMs. Also, certain DCC style threads in Other Trivia (as in the counting threads) allow for flexibility with the discussion topic because following the 4 word/25 character rule and having the right number are all that are necessary for a post to be within the rules there, but keep it PG there.

    My reflection never matched what was in my head. It still doesn't, heh. XD

    Again, no preference.

    Nope. They've been supplanted by VMs and dozens of DCCs all across the forum and IRC.

    Well not entirely... I just haven't found one race anymore attractive than the others of late. Though my exposure is mostly to women of caucasian desent, because my state is dominated by Caucasian descendants.

    Theoretically, I intend to watch every anime at some point or another. I hear Angel Beats a tearjerker though so I don't know if I can handle it until life is a little brighter for me :p

    Ahh, so you were basing your statement off of Paige, hah. No one could ever understand how I ended up with a girl that attractive. I guess it was just my animal magnetism and knightly chivalry (not).

    It would seem that over the centuries, a forum became simply a place to discuss anything. Would a Pokemon forum in its truest form demand that we discuss Pokemon philosophy? If a Pineco uses Selfdestruct in Ilex Forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Blegh, looks like I'll be ducking into chat more out of morbid curiosity than anything else if I ever decide to go in. As if the DCC wasn't hard enough to penetrate between the sluggish activity and the high school life topics. I'm happy that these people in the springtime of their nerdy youth are having fun, it's just not for me though.

    Of course, post count didn't matter in the clubs even when they did actually add to your post count. I never actually cared about that, I was just genuinely having fun, which I continued to do after they made the postcount change. Not that it matters, but between the change in member groups and losing many posts thanks to a hacking, I probably would have pretty close to 20k posts all told. I'm still brimming with conversationalism, I just have to take it elsewhere now.

    How have you been these past few days?

    Negative, actually :p If you were looking at my VMs, the Kanade in question is Minamino Kanade of Suite Precure fame.

    Whoopsie, I kind of let the conversation die again.

    Well, the themeing isn't going very quickly, heh. I have my idea, but whether I actually have the skills to execute it (and whether or not I can make heads or tails of the skin-creation interface in vbulletin) is another question entirely.

    Elesa.......is so like me? XD Why, the fact that I was primarily known on PC for having lascivious feelings toward a cartoon character for years shouldn't mean anything at all! :p

    You know, Roman history is one of the holes in my historical knowledge. I red several war chronicles and political histories of ancient Greece (in the original language, even) but Rome eluded me. It's certainly the kind of topic I wouldn't mind doing some independent study on, I just have to shake off this burnout from the excessive reading I had to do in college. Do clue me in on the origin of the Forum if you know.

    Being the slightly forgetful person that I am, I still haven't tested out the chatroom. I had kind of an "I think I'm too old for this place" moment today when I entered the DCC and recoiled at the teenagers talking about their dislike for various academic subjects in school, so I'm now lacking in chatroom confidence. Will I have anything I can actually relate to? Am I anything more than just an oddity at this point? I'm at peace with the fact that I'll never be what I once was here, but I do want to fit in in some respects.

    It just makes me miss member clubs all the more. VMs are so sadly lacking in that party-like atmosphere and aren't good for getting to know people. What were clubs hurting, considering that they didn't add to your post count? (I lost thousands of posts when they made that switch XD)

    I'm doing okay, as usual. Nothing interesting to speak of. PC is generally very dead this time of night so I'm always glad to have you on.

    I still use Pokelink, which is what I generally used when I was here. I do switch to Plusle's Play Date now and again for the nostalgia, and I would use Midnight Misty all the time except that for some reason the banner was edited to hastily have an image of Ash slapped on as well. My 14-year-old self doesn't like the eyes he's making at her.

    I'm not much into the Pokemon games themselves anymore, but I do still appreciate the characters. My goal is to make a theme that's dark + neon lights that features Elesa, a gym leader from B/W. My gfx skills are middling, but after reviewing a lot of PC themes, most of the work is just deciding on your color scheme and the only heavy lifting is the banner and background. We'll see if my ambitions result in something or go down in flames.

    Definitely take the time to compare Kishida's artwork to the Totori figure before making a decision. Getting a 2D face right in a 3D space is always a tricky thing and we don't have the luxury of being able to examine Japanese goods in person. Figurine makers need to get with the times and provide hi-res 360º images of products to retailer sites.

    Maybe I'm just trying to sound like I know what I'm talking about with the memories thing instead of actually knowing something, heh. Having a connection to a past that no longer exists can slow down the emerging future, though whether this is a good or bad thing comes down to a case-by-case basis. Sometimes progress is liberating, sometimes it's dehumanizing. But I do think that tradition is necessary for culture to exist at all.

    Hey, now that I'm back, I'm staying whether the dynamic here creates a place for me or not. Maybe those who would have been rapid-fire posters in the DCC in the past have moved to the chat. All the more reason for me to check it out. I suppose it's just that on a forum, I value the method of posting that leaves an eternal record of what was said over the transience of a chat room. Forum posting also leads to more substantial conversation, but maybe I'm being too serious for my own good. Gotta loosen your tie and let the XDs fly sometimes, eh?
