      My girlfriend getting a super awesome job, where she basically gets to travel the US and get free travel, meals, and hotels. And she gets paid to watch little kids while their parents are at conventions. ON TOP OF THAT she gets to take someone with her (wouldn't want employees to get lonely, would we) so I'm with her going to Alaska and Hawaii and places. Not gonna lie, its pretty awesome.
      My trivia team getting invited to the trivia championships and getting 3rd place (worth $500 split 4 ways).
      A friend and I getting every single artifact on Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles. That's a whole bunch of grinding. At the end, we were getting like one artifact every two hours of gameplay. It was ridiculous.
      Probably other stuff that I can't remember.

      So, as you can see, I've had a pretty full summer so far. But, hopefully I'll be able to get back to my Pokemon playing. I've started working on an old fashioned Catch 'em All challenge for Blue. I have at least the basic form of every obtainable Pokemon in the game, now I have to play through Red a few times to get Blastoise/Charizard, Vaporeon/Flareon, and the Version Exclusives. Then I just have to grind grind grind and I'll be done!
      You have such a full summer. I have absolutely nothing to do. :/ I wish I could invite my friends over to play games and stuff, but they think it's really necessary to sit around and study. It's SUMMER. Have a little fun. /near rant

          I sort of wish I wasn't doing much. I really wanted to just chill and play video games most of the summer, probably with my best friend (the one who beat FF:CC with me), but no. Maybe the second half of my summer will be less busy than the first half.

              a lv. 100 challenge? You have to get all 659 to lv. 100? Seems hard but yet fun. or a "catch all 659" challenge? Seems like Syd and Myrrh are the experts here... so what do you two think about those ideas?

              Keep on hackin'

              Well a "catch all 646" Pokemon would be weird, since that's just completing the Pokedex, which is pretty much the end aim of the game anyway, so I don't see a point in making it a seperate challenge. Feel free to make it a personal challenge if you want to. :]

                I guess this is the best place to do this. I'm going to attempt to start back up Alpha Fan now that I'm back to PC. Anyone interested? I think the best idea is to have like 4-6 people working on it, and keeping in communication via skype or AIM or something. Its too much of a bother to PM all 5 people every time one person finds something out. Plus, with AIM or skype, we can have set times where we all meet up and talk about stuff. Sooooo, anyone interested?

                    People still use AIM? :[ It's gonna be hard to snatch people use for AIM when hardly anyone seems to use it now. You outta consider getting an MSN.

                    659? THERE ARE NEW POKEMON ALREADY?! lmao But yeah, like Alt said, that could be more of a personal challenge. The thing with huge challenges like that is just, the updating would be difficult to contain in a thread. Suits more for your PC blog, or Tumblr.

                    I don't wanna keep on hackin btw...

                    And all this summer talk lol. I wish I was having a summer. I have speech this month, math next, band camp in August, then starting fall semester with 14 hours. Like...Lord save me. I don't know how I can fit a job in there, but I need one desperately. Y'all hiring?

                    Oh. Also. I've hatched over 1000 Petilil and still no shiny. However, I have saved all the Modest and Timid Petilil with Own Tempo. If anyone would like one, I'd be happy to trade'em. That's why I saved them, lol.

                    Myrrh, this is an intervention. You need to move on from the outdated AIM and indulge yourself in a world of amazing by downloading and using MSN. Syd, myself and most of the other challengers use MSN, so it's sort of a necessary communication tool if we want to have a great challenge event for GT8.


                    Also happy birthday to challenges! /needs to be more active here

                      @Sydian I have a MSN but its not available to be used for this, AIM or ICQ etc. are easier for this, skype would be useful, but same story as my MSN

                      But I was talking to Myrrh...lol It's not a necessity. Depends on who all wants to participate and then you could relay that to whatever you wanna use (AIM, Skype, etc). I personally won't be trying to do Alpha Fan, because my play style goes against...every aspect of trying to beat the game that quick, tbh.

                      If your Skype and MSN don't work though, you're missing out on a world of experiences. lol Most people use one or both, myself included. It's kind of like how everyone moved on to Facebook. It's like you're still using the MySpace of instant messaging. Might as well uninstall your MSN and Skype and then reinstall them tbh.

                        I mean they're for different uses and i don't want my rom hacking and challenges people on them... I use MSN and I love it, same with skype, but they're for different things and I can't mix them.
                        And I would expect that from the moderator of this area haha, and as for you talking to myrrh, well, yea i probably shouldn't have butted in XD, but I'm also working on alpha fan now... XD

                        And I would expect that from the moderator of this area haha, and as for you talking to myrrh, well, yea i probably shouldn't have butted in XD, but I'm also working on alpha fan now... XD
                        I would do Alpha Fan, but like I said, it goes all against my play style (slow and steady wins the race kinda thing) and I have way too much stuff to do. I'm currently doing four challenges anyway (technically five if I'd get off my arse about it). I'm a slow poke in the gaming world, lmao.

                          Because I love Syd, I'm going to post in here and also wish Challenges a happy birthday(or he could be trolling me, either way).

                          lu syd. ♥ Even though I like, very rarely post here lmao.

                          edit: how the heck do you remember the exact day the challenges forum was created? xD

                          BECAUSE IT'S MY BABY. No, I'm actually going by the date the rules thread was posted, which was June 1st. But the forum was invisible at the time. Didn't become open to the public til I got back from a trip. Although, Nica managed to find this forum somehow, and she has the second post in this thread...

                          Exactly. How bad would it be if you forgot when your baby was born? That'd be really weirdif you ask me.

                          My friend's parents forgot his birthday and it's more irresponsible than wierd.

                          To make this post relevant to challenges, I am watching over the Nuzlocke thread, even if I haven't updated or posted there in forever. I swear.

                          That reminds me, I should totally try and get back into my Nuzlocke again anyway. I beat Flannery, who was easy as putting out a fire (pun intended) and then got called a noob or something and stopped playing it.

                          Idk I think it's Brendan being sexist as always. You walk out the gym and he's like "here have some goggles" and stuff, and then he says something like unlike you your father is actually tough because you're a woman and so forth.
