Welcome to the forum, Circa! :3
It's never too late to get involved in the community, so we're really glad to see you finally make some posts! Yeah, our ROM hackers are extremely talented and make some amazing games. I've played a few of them, including Shiny Gold and Flora Sky.. plus a few more, but I can't remember off the top of my head right now!
It's great that you're so enthusiastic about learning to hack; I'm sure you'll find whatever you need here, including tutorials, resources, and other neat things~! I included some helpful ROM hacking links towards the bottom of my post in the Helpful Links & Information thread, so I recommend checking that out if you'd like. :D You'll get the hang of it in no time!
Anyway, it was great meeting you and I hope you like the forum enough to stick around :3 We're friendly here, so we'd love to have you here. Enjoy your stay!
