I'd guess you'd put it in a general discussion area, but I don't see too much of a reason to not put it in a group with fangames and such, you're sharing it, and it's not like, illegal because you're not affiliated, you're just advertising for a person you don't know and giving other people something you like so they can like it too
Go on ahead and check out the Trade Corner, specifically the Quick Trade Thread for X and Y or the Quick Trade Thread for Generations IV and V.

This is a question that i'm sure has been asked by people other than me, but why is the forum always crashing every other time I try to access it? Is it because of excess capability with people being online? Again, i'm probably not alone in wondering this, but I would like to know if anyone has any idea. Thanks!

It's not just you, but rather everyone who tries to access the site. When this happens, it usually means that there's a large spike in traffic to the site. The best thing to do though in situations like this is to just wait it out instead of refresh constantly, since refreshing constantly can actually cause the server to be hung up for longer periods of time.

So i just spent two hours making myself a shop in the trade forum. (It had a picture URL for the top of the page intro)
A message telling me that i had to wait for a moderator to approve before it becomes visible appeared. All well and good every site has it's securities.
I was just hoping by asking about it here the time it takes for approval would reduce as im sure i read somewere about someone posting and it had been weeks and the thread had not shown.
So i'm asking whats the general wait time and how active are the moderators?
I really do hope i have not made that thread without avail.

Any help and information would be appreciated any feedback from a Mod themselves would be highly appreciated

Though I'm not the moderator of the Trade Corner, all I can just say is that you need to be patient, and don't come posting here if you just submitted it. If you don't see your thread in 24 hours or so, then contact either Mac or tabor62 about why your thread may not be approved. They will see your thread, so there isn't a need to post in here immediately after making the thread and sending it to moderation cue. Same with other sections that require thread approval.

I apologize.
The message that followed my posting of the thread came as a little surprise so i wanted an answer to my worries as soon as.
Ill give it 2 days and see what happens.
Thanks for the quick response!

I've seen some people have animated pictures of pokemon in their posts, when displaying teams etc. How do I do this?

You would have to wrap [IMG] tags around the link to the animated image. However, you cannot post links in posts until you have reached 15 posts, but that's a small, easy-to-tackle goal that you can reach in just a few minutes!

As a note when you reach that amount, to get the animated version of this link, you'd wrap it in [IMG][/IMG] tags, like so:

[IMG]http://www.pokecommunity.com/customavatars/avatar434515_1.gif[/img]

so it would show up like this:

You mean sprites? You'll need 15 posts before you can post URLs (which an image counts as such) and then you should be good. Just put the URL between the image tags, which are [IMG*]URL here[/IMG] but without the asterisk.

Thank you, I thought there might have been a tag made by the site, like a smiley or something. I'll have to start posting more frequently then...

Thanks,

Unfortunately right now there is not. The only way to get a change of identity is to create an entirely new account! I'm sorry about that. :/

Hi, sorry to bother you. I was wondering if you could help me if you know anything about Pokemon Roms. I have a problem with my games. When I got them in VBA and saved then came back to play it it was very glitchy and slow. The music was messed up too and it was going slowly when it worked fine on the first go. I also do not see the saved file on the game but the same problem happens. How do I get that to stop happening? I put it on Flash 128K. How do you save on them? I am using in game save. What should I be using? And do I need to unzip files? Do you do that by extracting them? Please help, I will be extremely greatful if you do. I am a beginner in this so please explain everything the best you can. Thank you.

Hello there

Yes, you will need to unzip your files before running them. Some ROMs have issues with the in-game save - there is an alternative though! If you click the 'file' menu of VBA you should see a command something along the line of 'save state'. If you save the state, then you can 'load state' next time you want to play at the exact same point (you can even bypass the menu/opening scene).

Hope this helps. If you need more help then you should ask in the Emulation and Hacking forum - the simple questions thread is your best bet.

Check out the Emulation and ROM Hacking forums for an idea where to go, or even to help find someone to help you with scripting. If you're really unsure, ask DrFuji or giradialkia for some additional help.

Not sure how to post a video in my profile. I had one years ago before I came back but it's been deleted and I'm trying to add a new one the same way but it doesn't seem to be working.

The video link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOOk3CpSaKs

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Heyooo

When you add a Youtube link to the field on your profile, you want to make sure only the end portion is inserted, which in your case would be MOOk3CpSaKs, so it looks like so:



I hope that helps!

Uhhh... Nooby question alert.

...How do I upload a sig picture? I tried earlier, but it's not working. Could anyone help me? :/

Edit: it worked, but it's a GIF and is supposed to move, but it isn't moving.

Either that or I'm going insane.

Save an image to your computer, upload it to a hosting site on the internet (such as tinypic.com or photobucket.com) and use the image's url inside a [IMG] tag when editing your signature. The button for that looks like this A gif should work too and move. This works much better than "uploading" a picture to PC imo.

If this was what you meant?

Omg thank you! The mods here are so kind, I'd be lost without them. I'm really grateful for your help! ^w^

If you're wondering why I cut out the little picture icon, the system wouldn't let me post because it was a url. Thanks again!

If you want to ask how much your Pokemon card would be worth then yes, that's doable here! Just check out the "How much is my card worth?" thread in the Pokemon TCG board. Good luck! :)
