I understand about you disabling contact Jess, everyone has their personal issues. I even know that XanderO is going through a similar situation right now, he disabled contact outside of possibly just staff or something. He even cleared out his friends list except for one member.

Ah yes, sleep. I am one of those who really loves taking their nap, in fact my bed is so comfortable I never want to leave it. In fact, I ended up being late for something today solely cos I slept in.

I don't have personal issues. I have creepy PC user issues.
Ohhh wait. I think you're misunderstanding. If I understand what you're referring to, that has nothing to do with my messaging being disabled here. Otherwise I would've had it disabled since joining haha. I should've specified that I disabled them because of a specific turn of events on PC.


I have a difficult time getting up in the morning, but I don't like the idea of sleeping all day. Seems like a waste of time. I'd rather be wasting my day doing other things. X} I know that doesn't make sense. I guess I would just prefer wasting my time while actually awake.

Edit:
Woah.
I just stumbled upon a page about MSG through another website.
I'm pretty sure they listed "Chewing gum" as an adverse effect of it. ?_?
Quote:
Cancer.....Heart irregularities.....asthma.....chewing gum
That combined with lack of sleep is making me think this is pretty darn funny.

I cleaned my friends list some day ago. Took away a lot of people I haven't spoken to since 2008 or something. It felt strange but also a bit relieving. It's not as if a person isn't worth anything just because they aren't on somebody's friends list on a pokémon forum. So I felt it was okay that I did spring cleaning :> first cleaning of that list ever actually

    Egh I never bother "cleaning" mine. I'm not too bothered by inactivity or being selective. Besides, a few friends I've made on here who aren't active anymore, I still consider good friends, so it's nice to keep them.
    If someone's bugging you then we do have a report button and an ignore list in place. I am pretty sure the ignore list even disallows the people on it from VMing and PMing you, and if not, then it's a good feature to bring up to staff to add.

    I already added them to my ignore list, but I hadn't thought of reporting them, back then. Besides, it wouldn't have happened if I would have paid more attention to what was going on and been more blunt toward them. So it isn't really worth reporting.

    I've never removed people from my friends list aside from when I deleted everyone some months back. I only did it so the staff will be able to contact me, but not random PC users. Or friends. I:

    I wasn't very picky, though. I had someone on my friends list who seriously sent me one VM and never spoke to me again.

      Hmm but I mean if the feature's not put in place already, it's a good thing that Audy could maybe add for the future. I think it's in for PMs but not VMs and I think it'd be useful, so I've brought it up in suggestions.
      Shame that had to happen though.
      Guess there is always the good with the bad in some cases, but good to move on and find a system that works for you :3!

      That does seem like a good idea. Wouldn't be of use to me, but it would be helpful to a lot of other users. {:
      I hadn't even realized that people on your ignore list can still VM you.

      I don't know much about ignore lists here in general. I wonder if an option will ever be added that you can hide your posts (not just blogs) from people on your ignore list. I doubt many people would use it, though- it would be kind of obvious.

      What would be the point in hiding them? If you're wanting to use your posts to slag people off...don't. Use PMs or something.

      Also, completely off the topic you guys are talking about, but is it generally considered to be ok to use images off a random person's Tumblr (found through Google) for your signature? I was thinking of using one of these gifs, but wanted to know whether it would be considered bad taste or whatever, as I'm not going to set up a tumblr in order to ask somebody whether or not I can use their image on a pokémon forum :P

        Hmm maybe if you're worried about it, you could always link to the original place you got it below the sig or make some CSS that links to the original maker :3

        Haha, if I could remember how, I'd do that thing where when you hover over the text / image text comes up. Anyone know how to do that?

        I think you misunderstood me- that isn't what I meant. I was thinking more of a scenario in which a user is being harassed, etc. by another user- and they wouldn't want their posts to be seen by the other person. Does that make more sense?
        (Just to be clear, the last sentence isn't sarcasm. It seems to me like it could be taken that way.)

        Isn't that CSS that you're referring to?
        I remember trying to learn it a while ago. I had no clue what I was doing and stopped trying. X}

        but coming from you, I know it wasn't meant that way. X}
        I miss talking to you, as well. Apparently, though, talking about /certain things/ was making it worse. I didn't even notice until after I disabled messaging. ?_? Now I only ever discuss it occasionally with my paranoid friend who is concerned and asks me questions haha.

        Oof. Sleep.
        I'm not sure if I got any sleep last night. I feel kind of sick. x; I probably slept at some point, and I just don't remember it. Insomnia. .__.

        I recently found a somewhat of a music video my friend's sisters made. It's a pretty cool concept, but I'd like to know what sane person would decide to casually sit down on a sidewalk and start cutting him/herself?
        As long as you're still my friend I don't care :] I just wanted to hear from you honestly.

        I am learning basic HTML right now actually. Started last year and I got bored so I'm learning it again when I start my internship with my dad's gf

        PC's timezone is confusing. 11:07pm is the last post :x but it's 9:08 for me. Does that mean an hour or two has passed, or was that one minute ago? Ugh.

        Regardless, joined the iPhone family today with a 0$-down 2y plan (six month extension on the old plan). Wee~

        I've decided it would be best to re-learn HTML before I bother with CSS. I remember being able to do simple stuff by memory, but I actually had to ask my younger (computer genius) cousin for help once. X} We're less than a year apart in age, at least.

        @Insomniac
        Yeah, we haven't had a chance to talk much since I disabled messaging.
        How is Monty? Still grouchy? x;

        Edit:
        Over here it says that Nathan's post was at 9:03 and it's 9:13 now. ?_?
        Also, spellcheck says "Nathan's" is not a word haha. Either getting only a few hours of sleep is catching up with me, or spellcheck is just being weird.

        It was a minute ago Bell.
        And I think I'll stick with my current smartphone for a good while.
        Edit : It depends on what you want to do with it Jess. If you want to code, learn HTML before.

        In all honesty, I'm just learning HTML (and, later, CSS) because it's something to do. I potentially will never actually use it. x; But I have too much free time and I might as well get something out of it.
        I should get a life. But nope, I learn things that are of no use to me, instead.

          Eh, coding.
          I have to be in the mood for it.

          @Jess:
          Rejected!
          Why do you keep toying with my emotions Jess?!? Don't you love me anymore?!
          I can't take this pain! I must end this misery!
          :3

          I had a few suspicions about that, but you had said that it was helping before, so I kept on.
          I'm sorry. :t
          I'm glad that it's not a problem anymore though.

          That gif you Vm'ed me by the way, beautiful.

          Waitwait no I'm not learning the new HTML. In fact I have no idea what I'm talking about.

          This is the kind I'm learning and I have no idea if it's any different from the old or new

          Spoiler:

          <DOCTYPE! HTML>
          <HTML>


          </HTML>


          I am too lazy to type anything else like lists or colors or titles or heads sorry

          what exactly is the new html different from the older ones?

          I think you don't have to type out the w3 website anymore to make everything easier on designers.

          ALSO video and audio support without using like <embed aohfliuawhegliuajweio>. Though there's like a huge copyright issue, as all the good compression formats are owned by Apple, Microsoft, and Mozilla or something crappy like that.

          dramatic much? ;D
          I'm not sure whether to play along or what. haha.

          Am I misunderstanding, or are you saying that you had just been playing along to try to help me? I can't tell.
          Also, don't apologize. D: Remember what I told you when you were 'leaving'.

          Haha glad you liked it.
          Speaking of like. I didn't intend to like your post. I: I'm using my laptop and the lack of mouse is messing me up.

          bgtihndgjnio he's so cute. X}
          If I remember correctly, he used to get ticked off when you tried to handle him. Does he still do that?
          I'm glad my agama tolerates me haha. He's pretty calm, but he gets aggressive if I annoy him. It's pretty adorable when he tries to attack me with his (very spiky) tail, though.

          I'm learning the same kind, by the way.
