    :c So? I miss that so bad. It's not fair that only staff gets to see it :c Would be nice if it was at least a supporter perk. Might actually give me an incentive to donate.

      You should! OVP is awesome too, but I've posted in just about every thread! I guess I could make more threads but I am at a blank right now as to what to ask! Something as generic as "Do you paint your nails" is way too boring to ask, too!

        Or we can just chat more in DCC to get the ball rolling lol. I don't mind if normal users can't see the activity of another forum user cause it seems rather stalker-ish, even though I used it before to stalk others XD; As for lurking, ya sometimes I still lurk the hack section to see if there's anything fun to play, but right now just don't have the time to play much games... already got enough games that I want to play.

        After Christmas, I should have a lot more time though!

          I believe it's for server reasons, as opposed to any policy about keeping things secret from you guys. And the only reason that staff have it is to make sure that mods aren't simultaneously locking and unlocking threads at the same time. There's honestly no conspiracy afoot! :P

              Gah, Kura, you make me wonder if it was worth donating. So much I could've done with $10 ;;

              Hah, jk, I'm happy I did. This site's awesome. Not as awesome as once before, but still great.

                I already have blogs since I am an ex mod and have over 5k posts.. I dont see the appeal in the supporters forum. The only thing that might be worth it is the extra PM space but.. egh. I think my name would look weird being that light blue like that.
                And profile customization? I don't do that anyhow.. and if I did I would make it so that it would look like my default theme (pokelinks).. but I dont even know how to do that soooo.. yeah.

                But damn if I could see people lurking I would be on that.

                You can make your name not be supporter-ized even if you are one.

                But tbh I find people that are established on PC and not supporters impressive. Not sure why. ;x

                I donated mostly because I thought it would be a nice thing to do for the site, so it was worth donating for me. I also like the way my username looks now, so that's a nice perk.

                Lol because all these supporters took the cheap way out :p

                Honestly though that would be a cool t6 perk. Along with html usertitles, which could go for $150/t7 :P

                And trust me I would spend all that money.

                  Meh I dunno.. feel like I like the community for the community.. not for any perks. I'm not special or anything over anyone else and having that title might make it seem so as opposed to a regular member.. so.. I dunno. I kinda like being good ol' Kura. I could donate if I wanted.. but that wouldn't stop the DB errors hahaha!

                    DB errors are staples of PC. Don't ever let anything change them.

                    I still need to just sit down one day and redo everything in my profile... I don't know if I want to have even more options to temper with XD; I'll be honest and admit: I am totally in the power to donate, but I really doubt it. It's only when you work, you truly realize that even 10 dollars is a lot. Back in high school, 10 dollars nothing and it's spent on ice cappuccinos as if it's just a penny. Nowadays, 10 dollars is worth almost an hour of hard labor forcing high school kids to like, learn how to divide numbers again (without a calculator.) That's on par with pulling teeth in difficulty x_x;

                    @Shiny Celebi: all the Cherrims in the banner keeps misleading me to think that you're Lightning x_x;

                      It's true. I'm always like.. "10 Dollars? I could buy myself a nice panini press with that and make myself nice sandwich melts all week for dinner next week!"

                      .. Mmm <3 Paninis.. <3

                      Really? Once I started working I became much less cheap. When my entire income was 50 bucks from my aunt once a year on my birthday I was so cheap I would never spend money on even food because it was consumable, haha.

                        I admit I do treat myself more often but I am never really frivolous with my money because I always weigh purchase decisions..
                        Like.. gym for 40 pounds a month? Are they crazy? 2 months worth and I could buy myself an exercise bike. A year's worth and I can go to japan.

                        I'll just buy some freeweights and a pair of good running shoes and work out at home/ out jogging. BAM.

                          Ahaha, maybe I should rephrase. As awesome as it was before, for me. Back in '09 and '10, all my closest friends were on here (that I met here). They're all gone now, so I sorta miss them, you know?

                          Despite only being here for 4 and a half-ish years that's still long enough to notice an immense difference in the activity of certain threads. Back in like 2008/2009 no one could keep up with the DCC, and even the Post Your Pics thread had a new page every hour or so whereas now it's just the same 3 or 4 people posting over and over again. It felt more like a community to me then because everyone knew everyone and the regulars really were regulars. Not saying PC is bad now but I do miss the old days and all the old members that went off and did their own thing.

                          As for supportership, I only did it for the pretty purple name.. which got changed to blue like a week after I donated, which left me totally depressed. Anyone that says they donated because they "want to see PC survive and prosper" is lying because a) PC would do just fine without your $10 and b) perks perks perks, which no one uses these days anyway.
