    Happy Birthday to the wittiest, most mischeivous, fun and friendly, loveable fellow in all of Pokecommunity!

    I was going through my library and found a story that's just perfect for my friend's birthday! *Milotic opens the book, puts on reading glasses and turns the page.*



    Once upon a time there was a brave trainer named Revise!



    On his birthday he saw a great, mystery pokemon soaring the skies!



    The bird dropped a feather that shined in every color of the rainbow.



    Yet when he tried to learn the pokemon's name nobody seemed to know.

    Everyone concluded that Revise met with real a rarity, and that this was an omen of happiness, good luck and prosperity!

    Pokemon celebrated from fletchings to bulbasaur! Revise partied with rockruffs, rowlets and more!



    A beautiful trainer from Kalos was there.



    Her pokemon was a shinx, and the two made quite a pair!



    She decided to join Revise to see regions near and far.

    The couple would travel by cat bus. They had no need of a car!



    Presents fell from the sky, and birthday cake too.



    Revise even got a gift certifcate for ice cream from his buddy Sandshrew :)

    SAAAAAAAAAAM!!! ❤ Thank you so, so, SO much for the lovely birthday wishes!! I see you haven't lost your touch at filling people's hearts with happiness—because you sure as heck made MY day brighter! ^__^

    Everything about your post is so perfect, omgggggg!! *squeals* Is this our little Yayakoma here?



    That definitely has to be Yayakoma!! :3 Speaking of which, the tiny bird wants to say hi to you!! "Hi, Sam!" says Yayakoma! ;)

    Also, it's funny you mentioned this:

    As master of time I can turn back the clock on any day and make it your birthday again.
    ...because on the very same day you sent me that message, that's when I actually got to celebrate my birthday! ❤ Clover and I spent that day immersing ourselves in lovely music together. <333333333333 It must have been your doing all along, huh? You're good at this time-controlling stuff!! I really appreciate you watching my back! :D (And of course, I'm glad to hear Dialga is doing well under your care, as well!)

    By the way, I apologize for responding to you so late! To put things lightly, I'm in a huge pinch... but I'm trying my best! Hopefully we can catch up again sometime, just like the good old days! I owe your VMs a nice, long response! :) I've missed you too, Sam! *hugs!*

    P.S. Whoa, great job with that fabulous CSS! *o* I really love the design you've cooked up!! =)

    Hi there Revise,

    Wow, how the seasons have come and gone since our last few messages! Nvm, remember, you gave me a Dialga? So that means I control time now! I say it has just been an hour since last we spoke. But shether it takes an hour, day or a month, our friendship endures the test of time :)

    I hope you had a stupendous birthday! Did you get up to any mischief? Do tell me that you are still up to no good :D

    As master of time I can turn back the clock on any day and make it your birthday again.

    I just want to say again that I am so happy for you and Clover. My two favorite mods have joined forces.

    Hooray for Kalos! Ash gets some of his best traveling companions yet in XY and the anime is gorgeous visually like the games. Did I mention I love the mechanic of mega evolution? That as well as the mega evolution special with Alain and Steven. The movies from the XY days were pretty good too. I liked Hoopa.

    XY definitely is the master of clothing stores! My trainer has never looked so good! I still have memories of having to fight my way into the snobby boutique in Lumiose City teehee.

    I love gen 6 pokemon in general, some of my favorites are Diance, Pangoro, Goodra, Malamar, Greninja and Mega Charizard Y.

    Thanks to you I'm getting a little bit better each day making my own CSS.

    It seemed so daunting at first, but I am improving. One day I will make something and try to really wow you# I always love seeing what you can cook up!

    I know this was last year, but I wish I could have been there to see you play such a spooky, sinister game. I love a good scare, and I always have the creepy pasta going on Halloween.

    Perhaps this year in The Clubhouse there will be Halloween fun and we will be able to stick to our schedule. I was thinking of maybe making a club this time that lasts all last year, celebrating each of the seasons and it's holidays.

    My winter was super busy, a little stressful at first. But then I got the Christmas spirit and a new pullip doll too. Asian fashion dolls are my great weakness!

    /Hugs/ missed you!

    Like it?! I LOOOOOOVE it. I can't wait to post this. You sure haven't lost your touch. You are such an amazing friend. I will thank you properly soon and finish up that vm. Happy, happy, joy, joy!

    I got a coupon for 1 free dessert from Mrs. Sandy Shrew's ice cream parlor to give you as a thank you! It's the least I can do for all of those dolls you enchanted.

    SAM HI!! :D I'll most definitely get back to the rest of your VM, but there's one thing I don't want to keep you waiting about!

    You can definitely count on me to whip something up for the CSS! When I get a chance, I'll send you a PM with some kind of starting ground for you to look at, then you can give your thoughts and we can go back and forth until we've got the perfect template! :D

    ALSO OMGGG DOLLS!! <3 Brings back so many memories, hehe. :) In fact, I think it was almost exactly a year ago when you sent me that inspiring PM, and we played so many Trivia games during PokéCommunity's darkest hour. That really helped to save me when I was almost on the verge of leaving this place for good. I'll never forget about those times, along with my gratitude for you. Thank you, Sam!! ^_^

    My dear friend! Let me give you a big teddiursa hug back, a long overdue one.

    I am so proud of both of you, because you and Clover are such loveable folks, so nice, funny, generous that I was really hoping it would work out between you two. I couldn't say anything of course, it was up to Annie to tell you. But I meant every word of encouragement, and think you two are a brave bunch. Its amazing how close some of us on staff have gotten, Dragon and I are like you and Annie. Luvdisc has been very kind spinning the wheel of fortune.

    I am always here if you need me! And I WILL reply to the other vm, cross my heart, hope to die, stick a honedge in my eye ;)

    Incidentally, I was wondering if you would be interested in a little creative something. I need to jazz up a really old club of mine from 50 years ago, try to bring it back to life. I decided to give it a css. I did not bother to before, but now I know better. Would you be interesting in whipping one up?

    You can say no of course, I can manage it, but I thought I would offer you a go because the subject might appeal to you in particular. The club is about...

    Spoiler:




    Dolls!

    Knowing our history I thought you might get a kick out of it. I just need something simple, a background that would work with the colors of those princess dolls in the pic. If you take up the challenge then there's no date I need it by days, months, what ever works. Let me know if you feel like wrecking my dollies. It would be an honor to see what mischief you would make with your artisan skills!

    Have an awesome one Revise!

    aaaaaaaaaaa *blushes* th-th-thank you soooo much, Sam!! *gives you a big hug* It really means a lot!! Happy Valentine's Day to you, too! :D

    By the way, Clover shared with me something you told her!

    Not long afterwards, it was something Sam said that made me realise the depths of my feelings... (I never directly told her about you, she guessed!) She said, "I stand corrected. You are in love, not just a crush. I'm thrilled for you. Love can cast you up and be exhilarating. I think you two are perfect for each other, complement each other perfectly so I really hope that some day your dream comes true."
    I was completely surprised, but I also had the biggest smile on my face when I read what you said, ahahahaha!!! I had no idea you two talked about this together, but thank you so much for being such a lovely and supportive friend! You're the best!! <3

    OMG HI SAAAAM!! It feels like I've been gone for ages, woah! But just like you, I still have plenty of wishes that I need to corrupt, hehehe! Those unfortunate wishes will never see the last of me. ;)

    Great to see that you're back as well! While this might be just a month late (I'm a terrible person!!), I still hope you had an amazing New Year's Day! *hugs back* ^_^

    MY GOODNESS, that ice cream looks sooo good! *w* Argghh, too bad it's made out of Sandshrew's poison! The tempation is just killing me, I tell you! I don't even know what's worse: eating poisoned ice cream, or dying from the temptation of not eating poisoned ice cream... D:

    Thanks so much for offering to help EV train Yayakoma! Don't worry, I've got this covered! I seriously can't wait to re-experience the Kalos region again sometime in the future, because this lil' birb is gonna be the ace of my new team!! And Gyarados is gonna be his trusty sidekick! :D That reminds me, I've still gotta brag to Lycan about a certain shrewy you traded me a while ago. =p

    And yesssss I agree with you; I love XY so much—both the games and the anime! I'll never forget the excitement in my heart when I watched the XY anime for the first time, along with the breathtaking atmosphere of the games! The clothing shops, the rollerblades, the available Pokémon... everything was so much fun. <3 (And I can never get enough of Snowbelle City!!)

    You're very welcome about the CSS! If you ever need help with a template, don't be afraid to ask me! I'd be happy to help you cook up a design! :D

    Regarding Halloween, my sister and I did indeed get to play that game, but we quickly gave up after a few minutes ahaha! It was just too scary, and the walkthrough of the game made it look a lot easier than it actually was. :(

    I'm sorry to hear about the live stream being cancelled! It's at least reassuring to know that you had a nice, peaceful evening with your family. =) And wow, all of that pumpkin food sounds very yummy, especially pumpkin bread!

    How were your Winter holidays, by the way? I'm hoping you had a great time! :D :D :D

    Merry Christmas you wonderful Revising Rowlet, and a happy new year!! I'd love to hear about any fun happenings you had during the holidays.

    My tablet has been going slightly mad, so I have been gone for a bit. But that is about to change. After all, I have to return to corrupt some New Year's wishes!

    Take your time responding, a lot has been going on right now, no rush. If you want we could even just startover with this new message.

    Anyway *hugs* I hope your New Year's Eve is the best. I have a special winter holiday treat for you as a belated Christmas present. Please enjoy!

    Spoiler:



    Its is a brand new delicious brand. A percentage of the proceeds go to fund the National Sandshrew Preserve!

    Hi there Epilogue! I have been teleporting in and out these last few days and staying pretty much for just a few seconds at a time. I'm sorry that I'm only now just replying to you, especially when we are conducting business.

    I hope you like lil Yaka! He is genetically perfect with the magic 6 IVs. I didn't ev train him because at the time I thought you as the trainer might want to be the judge of where the evs are invested, so I kept him a blank canvas there newly hatched. But since you mentioned that you might not ev train I just wanted to let you know that if you want any help for that you could always trade him back to me and I can take care of that for you.

    Also I hope you have fun riding Gyarados. He hasn't bitten you has he? I traded the moxie one since hidden abilities were the theme but I have plenty of intimidate Gyarados if you prefer, both have their uses.

    Also I still have Milotics and Pupitar if you want to collect any more of your September Serpents Pokemon

    I was honestly going to let you yes totally walk off and just give me Corrupt a Wish! They are YOUR prizes after all that you won because of your own effort.

    But if you really want to do the legendary trade then I would not mind Dialga. If we did another gen 6 trade then it could go to my Omega Ruby save file where there is Palkia and then it unlocks Giratina in that game, so that would be fun to do while soaring ^_^
    Does that sound okay to you?

    Also if you want to look in my storehouse and get some other Pokemon from me then let me know. Lycan and I started doing a lot of nice extra trades after September Serpents. I helped him evolve some pokemon and vice versa.

    I'm glad that you got all nostalgic when booting up XY. I like Kalos, its gorgeous. I love Serena and cruising on my rollerblades, hooking myself up with hip fashions, playing games with my Pokemon in poke Amie. Grn 6 has wonderful Pokemon. I'm a fan of the Kalos starters, the legendaries, Goodra, Hawlucha and Pangoro, and love mega evolution, particularly how the Kanto starters were transformed. The cities are also just beautiful to look at.

    Speaking of pretty, thank you for pointing me in the right direction with CSS. I'm still working on it. Milotics and technology usually don't mix. Water hurts computers, but I'm going to get the hang of it and show you soon!

    So... Did you and your sister get to play a fun game together on Halloween? It sounds like you two were headed for a nice time ^_^

    My Halloween had some unexpected pot holes I fell into. There was gonna be a live stream here on Halloween night but it got cancelled, I totally understand the technical difficulties and schedule problems my friends ended up having. I put up Halloween decorations at home, and bought lots of candy but my family got no trick-or-trearers :( I heard that was a real problem this year.

    On a positive note I still had a nice intimate evening with loved ones, and the house was full of wonderful treats, freshly baked pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup and roasted pumpkin seeds, and Spaghetti and eyeballs :)

    Have an awesome weekend!

    Hiya Sam, thanks for checking on me! Wow, you're right—my Fletchling did get traded away! That's pretty strange haha, because I offered up a Fletchling for a Fletchling, so I didn't think anyone who has easy access to Fletchling would be looking for one. xD

    I do have a second Fletchling named "Hi, Sam!" but I'll save that one for the Gyarados. ;) In the meantime, I deposited the new Fletchling that I received from the GTS! This one is named Piromano. :D

    Indeed, today's the big day!! Even though we usually don't do Halloween-related things on Halloween over here, it is still very exciting to think about! Maybe my sister and I could play through this old computer game that we used to be too scared to even attempt ahaha, but if not, that can probably wait for the weekend! How about you? Do you have any special plans? ^_^

    Hey there Revise!

    I hope you had an awesome weekend! I was super busy, literally not even in town yesterday. I got your pm though. I will give you a full-length response soon. Just wanted to give you a heads up though that I checked the GTS for fletchling on gen 6 and I think "Hi Sam" has been adopted by somebody else, I don't one by that name. So we may need another Hi Sam. But Yayakoma is safe with me :) This little guy will wait for you, just say when. We have all the time in the world to do this. No worries!

    Are you excited about Halloween?

    Talk to you soon!

    Hi Sam! No way, you're not disturbing me at all!! You can shoot me a VM or PM anytime you'd like! ^_^ And thank you, my weekend has actually been pretty good! I hope yours is going great as well. :D

    Ah! CSS, huh? It's cool to see you start picking that up! On PokéCommunity, the two essential things you'll need for CSS are [DIV] tags and [SPAN] tags. These tags can create decorations by adding "properties" to them. "Property" basically means the type of decoration. For instance, "background-color" or "background-image" are examples of properties you could utilize. To add properties to either tag, you would write something like this:

    [DIV="width: 200px; background-color: red; font-size: 17px;"]
    (Here's the stuff
    that goes inside
    your textbox!)
    [/DIV]

    And here is the visual result of this example:

    Spoiler:

    (Here's the stuff that goes inside your textbox!)


    As seen in the code above, you would put an equals sign right after the name of the tag, and wrap the list of properties in quotation marks. If you have multiple properties, you would just put them one after another. The format for writing properties is name of the proptery: (followed by a colon sign) then value of the property; (followed by a semicolon sign). In my example, I had three properties — width, background-color, and font-size. The value of width was 200 pixels, the value of background-color was red, and the value of font-size was 17 pixels!


    For a list of every possible property, click on this link! If you want to know more about a certain property, just click on its name from that list, and it will show you examples what values can be used for that property. Each one will also have a "Try it yourself" link which gives you a visual preview of how that property would look!



    There's also another important thing to keep in mind. Remembering the difference between a [DIV] tag and a [SPAN] tag is crucial for writing CSS code. I'll outline them below:

    - [DIV] tags are like textboxes. By default, these tags will create a rectangular container that expands to fit whatever text/images are inside of it. If you give it a "background-color" or "border" property, you'll be able to see the exact boundaries of your DIV textbox. It is usually recommended to set an exact width for it using the "width" property. For the height, this isn't necessary (but it's still possible!) since we generally want the height to automatically expand depending on the inner contents of the box!

    - [SPAN] tags, on the other hand, are not textboxes. They can be used to individually decorate specific words/phrases within the same sentence, paragraph, or textbox. On our forums in particular, there isn't too much that you'd want to do with SPAN tags that can't already be done with other basic tags, but they're still pretty good for signatures and usertitles! For thread templates, however, you'll most likely be sticking to just DIV tags.

    (Side note: In the September Serpents template I made for you, I'm aware that I used a tag called [css-div] instead of [DIV]. To my knowledge, both of those tags are the exact same thing, but I'd recommend that you use [DIV] because it's probably less confusing that way, ahaha.)



    Oh, and one more bit of advice! A very common property that most people use for thread templates is "padding" (click here for more info). The padding refers to the amount of blank space between the text itself and the border/boundaries of the textbox. Having well-spaced padding is a usually key factor in making a nice template!

    Remember my old example from above? If you look at it again, you can see that the text was all crunched up within the walls of the box.

    Now, here is that exact same example, but this time with a "padding" property of 30px added! Much more comfortable-looking than before, don't ya think?

    Spoiler:

    (Here's the stuff that goes inside your textbox!)



    Anyway, that just about covers the essential stuff, I think! If there's anything more specific you'd like to ask me about, or if I wasn't clear about something in this message, by all means let me know! I'd be happy to help you out with whatever I can! :D

    And ooooooh, I am so sorry I haven't gotten to you about the trade yet! I've been meaning to respond to you soon, but I hadn't realized how crazy fast time has been passing lately! :(
