View Full Version : What have you contributed to PokéCommunity?

August 6th, 2011, 11:37 AM
What have you contributed (or what are you contributing) to this forum? Perhaps you're a member of the Staff or Ex-Staff, or you staff #thepokecommunity. Maybe you've organised events in the get-together or helped make important threads. Or, you could have introduced a new idea into the community which caught on well. Have you donated or helped make styles? Or perhaps you think you just make consistently good posts in a section.

What have you done here?

August 6th, 2011, 11:50 AM
Uh. I post and I'm trying to come up with ideas to make Webmasters discussion more active. I also judged and hosted the Post theme contest.

August 6th, 2011, 11:55 AM
"Japanese Entertainment"

Or at least the name, not the entire forum, it was simply for other anime before that and there are was no place to discuss Japanese media that wasn't anime. Of course people still rarely talk about things that aren't anime in there, but it was a neat change.

August 6th, 2011, 11:57 AM
Remember Other Entertainment -> Culture and Media? You're welcome. Also, in regards to Other Chat, when religious and sexual topics were re-instated before my tenure began, I made the first religious thread. Yes, the first. And, it reached 100+ posts without any flamewars. Many of the new happenings in Other Chat is due to the hard work of Patchisou Yutohru, and my enforcement :) Also, I was the main mastermind behind April Fools 2011.

Some of the recent PC rule changes over the course of the past year were either suggested by me or backed by me.

Aside from supporter status and the donation, I've made lots of popular and large threads in a few forums, I had the massive Golden Sun: Dark Dawn thread in Video Gaming, as well as my trade thread in the Trade Corner that has 5,400 posts, as well as a few other big ones in OVP, C&M, B/W, etc.

August 6th, 2011, 11:58 AM
Um... I helped host three events for the 2011 Get-Together, hosted a New Years Event, a 2010 Get-Together event...

As for forums, I guess I helped people out in Emulation, I used to welcome a lot of users in NU/W (until I got inactive for a while).... Maybe I should start posting there again...

August 6th, 2011, 11:58 AM
I like to think that I make pretty creative threads in various places, and I help out a lot in the Quick Questions in B/W. I hosted an event and judged another one in the Get-Together this past year as well, aaaand I report a ton. XD

Also I occasionally do have some kind of power on #tpc, but it's never permanent and I don't do anything with it. :P

Oh! And the clubs section in the About Me area was my suggestion. :B

Nothing really, don't know how I got the job in the first place. loljk.

Anyway, I think I have made fun topics, posts, events and will continue to do the same, as well as keeping a clean board on Video Games so members can enjoy active discussions.

August 6th, 2011, 12:10 PM
Most of my suggestions put forward in CQ&F met support but failed to pass staff deliberation.

So, ultimately, nothing.

Or perhaps you think you just make consistently good posts in a section.
I'm told I do this, but I don't consider it a notable contribution. It's like being a good citizen: expected.

August 6th, 2011, 12:11 PM
I have...

Created the CBC Battle Video Thread, made a backup server when the PO Server was down, posted a few times in CQ+F back in the day, helped organize a GT8 event, Rated some teams and reported from time to time.

August 6th, 2011, 12:15 PM
Uh... a friendly welcomer, the new Pokémon Claim Thread, Pokémon Groups promotion, a multitude of good fanclubs and something upwards of $50. I try, for all the good it does. ;-;

Since I was made an s-mod, I've made 32 threads in HQ, which is where everything that effects the community is made. My biggest accomplishment was overhauling the moderator guidelines and bringing in a how-to in which new moderators can use as a reference for dealing with various issues - which I hope many of you will be able to see one day! I'm also fond in that I made Culture & Media the main reference in dealing with celebrities as well as bringing about a vast majority of the new topics it provides due to the name change. I'm also quite fond of the changes in Other Chat that I helped produce and that LiveWire's managed to uphold gracefully. I've also been one of the main activists for demolishing the trolling that's once tainted the community significantly. I also like the fact that I've helped give people a chance on staff. I feel quite a few in particular won't be staff if it wasn't for me! Through means of the blog I made and by arguing their case in their discussion.

August 6th, 2011, 12:35 PM
I've bee helping some Teams in ROM hacking there.
Most of them though, have no progress.
I feel like i'm always the most active.

I spread my Dark influence throughout the forum!

I suppose I also hosted the GT8 Yugioh tournament too.

August 6th, 2011, 1:42 PM
i think i've made a lot of people laugh because of my hilarious posts.

August 6th, 2011, 1:54 PM
Been on the Staff longer then you've (whoever is reading this) been a member. XD
For 8 straight years I've been a Higher Staff member on PC.
I don't do as much posting as I'd like, or start the threads I sort of want to. But I still find time to post about someone getting Modded, or something on with the forum. I've done a good many big things in the past that's shaped PC to what it is today. But many Staff have done far greater things. So I better not post a list boasting on what I've done, or Erica will come along and list the things she's done and make me look bad. XD

I always try my best to be kind and welcoming to members who talk to me and i've helped a few people with their CSS problems and i guess my signature made people smile when i first made it.
I need to do more for this place "/

August 6th, 2011, 2:32 PM
Well, what I have done for PC is I have a lot of posts and I have made some threads.

Also, I donated $25 to PC :D

August 6th, 2011, 2:39 PM
I have no regrets.

August 6th, 2011, 2:50 PM
I've donated $15 myself... and I'm usually active in posting in gaming community.

August 6th, 2011, 2:51 PM
Outside of my $50 dollars doesn't really seem like anything. I'd like to think I help in posting reports. I try and generate discussion in Pokemon Anime but usually to no avail.

August 6th, 2011, 3:46 PM
Well on the more official side of things, I've donated a few monies, I hosted an event and co-hosted another in the GT8, I 'co-own' a club in Other Clubs and I signed up to be a mentor (which I'm not even sure is still happening but still).

On the more day-to-day side of things, I've made a blog (http://www.pokecommunity.com/blog.php?u=252181) which I put a lot of work into in the hopes that people will enjoy what I have to say, and I like to think that I've made some good quality arguments in Other Chat. Outside of that, there's my occasional random posting sprees in NU/W and OVP, which is what I'm doing now :)

August 6th, 2011, 5:05 PM
I've been on staff for two separate runs. In OVP I've run PotW for awhile (although that was around before I was modded back in 2005) and I've made two rules threads.

I was s-mod/AA for awhile, although tbh even though I was on h-staff I didn't really do much. Suggested some mods, changed some names when that was still around, sometimes got to do a few things in the ACP. I feel a lot more h-staffers have done more than I ever did, even though I actively voted. :/ Aaaand that's why I'm just a mod now haha. The h-staff now is just so awesome and I'm nowhere near their level!

I also pioneered the DLoA. At least, I took one before it was even named that and when the h-staff were fixing some rules, they were like "yeah we can have mods do that thing Sam's doing now." Had nothing to do with the name though because... I was on DLoA!

...I'm serious ;____; no one's gonna believe me.

August 6th, 2011, 5:10 PM
See the challenge forum? You're looking at its daddy...with help from Went and Erica, of course (the mom and midwife?). Maybe a few emblem names/descriptions as well, but other than that, the most I've contributed is the Challenge forum.

August 6th, 2011, 5:13 PM
The first contribution I've made in my 14 months here at PC is donating for the community. I'm still doing so nowadays. I also hosted one of my first events at the PC Get-Together, which was really fun. Last but not least, my biggest contribution here at PC is welcoming as much new members as I can at NU/W, because that feeling when someone says "thanks!" is the best feeling evar. :3

August 6th, 2011, 6:54 PM
I...uhh...somebody remind me? My time as an S-Mod is a blur.

August 6th, 2011, 8:21 PM
Nothing really, except for giving in my 2 cents in whatever threads come up.

August 7th, 2011, 10:28 AM

As stupid as it might sound, when I saw this thread, my frist thougfht was "Hey, I helped start the Challenges forum!" XD I'm also really proud of the time I spent keeping the Older Gen Games forum clean, even if it was really short.

(I know I should mention all the regular crap I have done every day as a Smod moderating posts and discussing stuff for the last three years but it has never struck me as anything special)

August 7th, 2011, 10:35 AM
Stepping away from my quite shaky start, I think I've done a lot;
I've sucessfully hosted the AMV contest, and Anime Snapshots Event during two different get togethers, the AMV contest was done during last years get together I think, the Anime Snapshots being this year. I've managed to host the Shipping Debates Valentine's Banner contest. I'm very active in the Pokémon Anime section if I must say, I've contributed many thought out posts into discussions, without going to far to offend people, but still making my points and other points clear. I seem to be the only one to bother posting review threads for the dub of best wishes these days, and I'm always first when posting Japanese titles, just take a look at episode discussions, I've posted most of the threads in there. I've even gone through with most moderators that have come and gone a lot about how to make the section a lot more active including suggesting events and the weekly polls.

So yeah, I'd like to think I've done a lot, without ever being a member of staff.

mondays suck
August 7th, 2011, 1:35 PM
Slightly more than 2200 posts mostly consisting of nonsense. That is all.

August 7th, 2011, 5:07 PM
Apart from donating $20 supportershipness. I've hosted tons of events at the PC Get-Togethers since 2009 as well as other big PC events like the Halloween and New Years Events.

The I'll have to say my biggest contribution would be in the Pokemon Groups forum. It's been like my home at PC since early 2009 and I pretty much love posting there. I think more than half of my posts come from there xD

August 7th, 2011, 8:23 PM
Main thing I can think of is moderating Black and White for the last year, aka helping it go from place of spam to lesser place of spam (also getting to make the rules for it). Along with that also hosting weekly polls in the section and two mini-GT's there (one event allowing people to get blogs).

On a non-B/W note, the most contributory thing I've been involved in was the easter 2011 egg hunt, which allowed 20 or so people to get supportership (some of which couldn't get it normally) and was apparently lots of fun. Considering most of the planning was done by myself it turned out pretty good imo. I've also done other things like host get together events and stuff in the past but they don't really matter. I guess other than that there's helping out in sig rules thread, giving out emblems (lool a lot apparently) and helping out with MOTY. God I sound so boring, lol :( I've probably somehow contributed to other stuff but I really can't remember.

OH OH. Contributing 2 PC styles too, except one of the two really really sucks and the other one I worked with someone else on, but still!

August 7th, 2011, 9:32 PM
I was on staff for a short time, but I don't feel like I made much of a contribution. Unless you want to count locking and moving threads! I did make the daily Pokemon chit-chat thread in Pokemon General, (which to be honest I don't even know if it's still around) but yeah that had its run and it was fun while I was apart of it.

August 8th, 2011, 8:58 AM
In terms of donating, being a Mod or designing the Forum styles and or emblems, I did absolutely nothing other than write over 11,000 post in this forum so that is what I have done during my time on this forum


August 8th, 2011, 12:09 PM
Mainly posts, some ideas here and there, contributed quite a bit in the J-E section and OC (Not that it made much of a difference there).

I...uhh...somebody remind me? My time as an S-Mod is a blur.

Although I think I helped to ban reputation the first time. That's something to be proud of.

August 9th, 2011, 9:06 AM
I feel like in my time here as a regular member I feel like I've contributed a lot. Not counting the money I've donated which is close to $100 I've helped in running a couple of events, more notably the graphics event in the last couple of Get Togethers. I've made quite a few guides to Pokemon, including RNG Abuse for D/P/Pt, HG/SS, a general Egg Move guide for the fourth generation games and an EV Training guide for the fifth generation. I've helped out in the trade corner back in my day when I would love to trade, which is where most of those guides come from. I've made a few clubs, which some I can't even remember, and because of that I'm now the moderator of that section. ^_^

As a moderator though, I can't say I've done much. I reported something which was happening a while ago, around the time I've modded and I'm hoping to improve the Other Clubs and the Pokemon Groups section even further. :)

That's more than I can remember. S-Mods aren't exactly responsible for much decision-making, so I just................banned lots of people and locked lots of threads?

I guess I was PC's greatest unsolved mystery for five years. Idunno.

August 9th, 2011, 12:47 PM
I welcome people sometimes in NU/W and make some posts in various difference places :D

$15, over 6800 posts, 130+ blog posts, and sharing my major Leaf/Buick/Pretty Cure/Quality Inn obsessions. I've also helped out some folks who needed wi-fi trades back when I had access, and shared my delightful thoughts on a variety of topics :P

August 11th, 2011, 11:07 AM
Over 6,500 tallied posts of pure nonsense, and an additional 10,000+ posts in sections where posts don't count that are also pure nonsense! And probably around 1500 insightful posts in all sections. And taking the TCG section off of life-support. And maybe some other stuff. :D

August 11th, 2011, 4:25 PM
Not much to be honest since I have been spending a lot of time elsewhere. When I am here, it's mostly me giving my thoughts on the topic. There's not much else for me to say here.

August 11th, 2011, 6:33 PM
I spend most of my time in the RP Corner of PC. In that thread, I'd like to think I started a new trend of actually taking the time to make quality RPs, and finishing them, instead of abandoning them. I'm the first to finish it in quite a while, or so I hear.

August 12th, 2011, 3:54 PM
I..helped users in ROM hacking? I don't know if you can call it contributing to PC, but that's something, I guess -- also, add the fact that I increased the member value by 1 (when I joined) and I have almost 1000 posts, so yeah.

August 12th, 2011, 11:00 PM
Graphics and Photography is my home, and that's really the only place I help I guess.

Made a few tutorials, revived the Graphics School the second time and third time it was up and running to help people learn and improve graphics.
Constantly trying to give people in depth and useful constructive criticism instead of just praise.
Designed a few emblems around the place, particularly events though.
Have hosted a few graphics events too.
Donated a bit of money.

Yeah, if you took away G&P, I wouldn't even be here. :P

August 13th, 2011, 12:03 AM
Uhh. Not very much ):

I helped out at the Halloween Get Together this year(even though I wasn't much of a help to my poor partner since my job decided they REALLY WANTED ME THERE that entire week fkjlkjdgf). I'm trying to get some community Livestream events going, but that might take time. Also, I restarted my Hamtaro Let's Play so... I'm doing my best to entertain people. That's all I can really do anyway :D

August 13th, 2011, 1:37 AM
Nothing.. yet. ;~;

I'm not special? xD Haha. Anyways, yet.. because I might be donating soon, and that's a contribution.. right? :3

Oh, and posting in threads. /ofcourse. xD

August 13th, 2011, 7:05 AM
Aside from organising a event in GT8 and donating £25, nothing really at all.

August 13th, 2011, 12:38 PM
Umm, before I was on staff I was an active user that contributed to plenty of threads, and started many as well. Then I was on staff for nearly a year and contributed plenty of work and lulz (more lulz though) to the forum. Then I trolled around and contributed plenty of lulz to the general PC crowd, save the staff. Then I got banned for 2 years which resulted in plenty of personal lulz. Then I came back (lulzy as well) and I'm not as active as I used to be but I still try to contribute to PC with insightful posts such as this one.

August 21st, 2011, 5:13 PM
I've donated nearly $30, hosted in 3 different Get-Togethers, and given my knowledge to the Rom Hacking community, and I am showcasing what I learned there as well.

August 23rd, 2011, 6:23 AM
Next to nothing. Back in 2009-2010 when I used my main account (see signature) I used to be what you call a 'volunteering slave'. People asked me to sprite for them and so I did. The result was quite a few of last year's hacks to have some of my work in them. I eventually got too many requests and quit.

I also tried my best to contribute in the Pixel Art section when Fox was gone and it had no mods. God I miss Fox

So, yeah, next to nothing.

Looking from another perspective, I really haven't contributed much to the forums, except for littering my posts with pop-culture references, (much like "You Don't Know Jack"), bringing up historical information, local news, and the like.
(Although I did run a character fan club here in the middle of last decade.)
Because of the so little I had (and still have) to offer, I "semi-retired" from the forums quite awhile back, but have since come back to post here occasionally.

August 25th, 2011, 8:48 AM
Mainly post, create threads, helped out with the get together, and gave some money.

August 26th, 2011, 8:15 AM

I guess the main thing I contributed is the things that are in Pokemon Trivia. Before I modded it, that place was pretty deserted. I had remade the rules, put up an index, do a weekly 'Who's That Pokemon', as well as a Prettiest Profile Contest every season (which I need to put up, but that's besides the point). For Other Trivia I helped with the updated Rules, helped hosted the Prettiest Profile Contest, as well as help with keeping up with the index. I've also hosted a few events for Get Togethers, but eh.

Before becoming a mod, I guess the way I contributed was through my posts. I didn't really make many threads because I suck at coming up with thread ideas. However, I always made sure my posts contributed to the thread, or I expressed my opinions or how I felt about something as much as possible.
