Spheal with it. Lots of things aren't fair.

"Spheal with it"

Excuse me, but I'm going to have to steal that phrase from you.

Geez.
The forums are going to be down for hours at random times anyway, whats it matter if it was down a couple more to revert things back the way they were before, to keep things in line with what staff has stated in the past?

Because they don't want to risk completely breaking PC? That's kind of why they were taken away in the first place. :/

Also "Spheal with it" has been around for a while lmao.

I'm too lazy to quote but i'm sure you can tell which sentence is directed at who

If they didn't want to risk breaking PC, then why did was it attempted in the first place?

Imo, if its more donations PC needs then we should make most/all of the additional skins a supporters benefit. Pick 10 or so at random, let those be avaliable to all but then have all the additional ones as a supporters benefit.

I'm willing to bet that there would be a fair amount of people willing to pay a bit to unlock that. It works with blogs, would work with this too.

Another idea, offer the @pokecommunity.whatever email address for $whatever a month. Odd's are, your going to have a small amount of people go for that. I'm willing to bet that there are people who like pokemon enough to pay a dollar or so a month just for that email.

Edit - Hell, you could even charge for a namechange itself. Just pick a few days out of the year, announce name changes for $1 or whatever, and do them then.

Seriously. These are ideas off the top of my head, and I'm sure that someone could think of more.

It isn't like just waiting around, it literally freezes the server and has to be manually fixed, and even then we have to wait until the stacked-up processes finish.

It just isn't worth it.

If it's lack of resources, add a VM limit. Proably drops in the bucket, but we have a PM limit because of resources. And if I remember right, the mass amount of VM's was supposedly one of the reasons why namechanges for some members made the server instacrash.

Edit - Another thing on the skins, with the limit. Give people the option to preview the skins, and the option for them to unlock ones they want/like for a quarter each. Or something.

Audy thought he had a way to do it without PC breaking. It didn't work. Let go of your bitterness already.

Mah, unlike some people I'm fine with my name.

But still, I've read a complaint by a staff member, somewhere around here (Can't remember the topic) about the server issues being from a lack of funds. You might call it complaining, but I call it forcefeeding them ideas to make more money so they can (try to) improve the site.

I would appreciate you not passing judgement on my teammates and I without understanding the full story. It'd be super cool if you would just accept that we want to offer name change as much as people want them but it just isn't possible.

no, not yet at least. Audy has more ~secret government projects~ to tackle before he gets to it I think.

There's an unlike button! But only if you already liked something. And it makes you feel bad. :(

Wait, so I was confused at first. I think I got it now though.

Before there was an update for PC that added a name change feature, and it allowed people to change their names but it broke the site. Those that changed their names during this time period got it changed back, correct?

I really don't understand why people are so bitter about this. They tried adding it and unfortunately they couldn't get it to work. It's better than them just ignoring people's requests for such a feature. It's not like they took away the feature after a long time of having it, they added a feature briefly and removed it. Big ****ing deal. Stop complaining. Just create a new account under a new username. They allow you to do that here unlike on other forums, that's more than others allow you to do.

You'll have to forgive me if I don't fully understand the situation and am in fact babbling about something I don't fully understand unnecessarily.

Horray, spending time rehashing something we had in the past, and was removed.

Really. If that is what is planned, then its going to be a cheap knock-off of the Rep system. Seriously, this + post comments = stripped down rep system.

Edit - Forum is so big because of all the junk/useless data we keep. The PM system has a pm limit to limit junk data, VM system lacks this. And, we also keep most/all of the permabanned accounts. Pure trash data, waste of resources that could be better used elsewhere.

Edit - Speaking of junk data, I've got ~200 pm's. Dating back to 06. And I'm sure that there are others with the same exact thing. The PM system has the option to backup pm's in text form, and any very important ones can be saved as screenshots.

Basically, we need a yearly wipe of the pm and vm systems. Might as well make it full circle, and include the old post comments as well. (Edit - And the permabanned accounts)

While the wiping could take the forums offline for a while, removing the junk data would be helpful long term.

it seems a sort of milder version of the rep system because you can only basically unlike something, not dislike it.

it depends on how mature people can be and whether people can handle it, it's not really sad though. a like button means less when there is no dislike button because there are less options, but it's a nice addition nonetheless.
