Yeah, I realize the hardest part will be keepin up woh what dies off because once it's out of sight, it's out of mind too. Usually when things get locked though, people are quick to revive it, so that's a plus.

I'm still heartbroken over getting a new mod here x.x Momma Syd's the best Altaria to look over this nest but nao that she gained shininess, it's gonna be even harder tolook after the nest T-T
I hope the foster momma bird is gonna be at least half as amazing .

Don't worry, I'll be here, new Altaria or not. I'll ensure someone great will take over, and even then, I'll still be around. :) I'm not going anywhere. I helped bring this forum in, after all. It really is my child, haha.

I have no doubt that we'll be seeing plenty of Syd for a long time. And she's still the mod here right now technically, so no crying yet.

    Dang, I can't get a free copy of Pokemon X or Y. I don't have any of said games :(

    I would like a challenge index. It would let me know which of the challenges are dead without me having to flip pages to find them.

    Speaking of dead challenges, I have decided to revamp my Mega Evolution Challenge! I recently learned HTML and CSS (very rudimentary, at that, but enough to suffice) through January and February, and I think I'm ready to apply it to here. Also, it's been 5 months since X and Y came out, plus there's this free thing with Club Nintendo, so I think that enough people will have the game now in order for the challenge to have regular posts, at least once a week. Also, since Spring Break is coming up, I couldn't think of a better time to re-release it. Just, uh, forget what I said about taking it down, ok, Jak? Thanks.

    My 3DS should be here soon! I'm so impatient... >:(

    Did I already lock it? I don't remember. I know you wanted me to lock some and I did. If it was long ago though, you're better off starting fresh.

      It was around December-January. Yeah, I planned to start fresh anyways, so you can delete the old one if you want, just let me get the rules first.

      Well I don't delete threads unless they're duplicates, advertisement, or troll threads so you're good to go snatch your rules whenever you're ready. :P

      I'll probably still put that even when I'm removed as mod from here since it's really weird just putting "super moderator" and nothing else. No more "moderator of this and that" or funny things to put. >:( But yes, this forum is so badass that they had to promote me so I could super moderate it.

      I think an Index would be a great idea, for all the reasons that have already been mentioned!
      Also, if anyone deserves the title of SuperMod its you Syd, congrats :P

      I had this idea of a "first come, first serve" challenge. I would post a number of Pokemon, like 30 or so, and the people who sign up would get to make a team out of these Pokemon. BUT, once a Pokemon has been assigned, its gone, and no other Person can use it. I would either replace the picked pokemon immediately or when all are gone, not sure yet. Besides that there wouldnt be any special rules. Does this sound like an ok challenge or is it missing something?? Also, anyone got any idea to improve this concept??

      It's certainly interesting, but challenges that rely on the owner being around to update things can be difficult. If you had to leave for some reason, there would have to be a way for the players to keep things going in your absence. Plus it would require A LOT of updating, which I can say from experience with updating my threads on a mostly weekly basis can be a real pain.

      Perhaps, instead of updating it yourself, when someone takes a team, they repost the list of Pokemon in a spoiler, and decide on what replaces the Pokemon they took. That way it's autonomous. And maybe instead of 30, how about 18 Pokemon. That would be 3 teams which should give plenty of choice while not using too many Pokemon at the same time.

      You are probably right about the challenge being too reliant on updates to work properly. That said, i really like the idea of having the poster replace the Pokemon themselves, seems like a lot of fun. And having 18 Pokemon only would make for more changes, which is good as well!! Now, different problem: Would this Challenge work no matter what game people pick to play, or would you restrict it to a certain Game only??

      Sadly you'd probably have to restrict it to a specific gen. There's really no way around that. The chance of someone wanting to use a Kanto game and being unable to form a full team would be too high if all gens were allowed.

      That's a good solution to the problem. Challenges that rely too heavily on its owner tend to really take a dive. We had a challenge a few years ago where the OP gave out eggs and it was REALLY popular. So when she disappeared without saying anything, there were still people signing up going weeks without eggs. You can imagine how lovely that was. lol

      My recommendation would be to use either 4th or 5th gen, as both have a good variety of games and a healthily high number of Pokemon. Also people are more likely to A) have the games or B) be able to emulate the games.

      Well thats definitely a crazy challenge to manage xD you would have to be constantly on your Ds.

      I don't! I know you won't be able to stay away. And it will be kinda weird to see a Super Moderator participating in challenges that aren't events.

      By the way, how goes the search for the non-shiny Altaria?

      The thing is Black2/White2 has a way bigger National Pokedex...
      Or maybe i could make 2 pools to chose from: Unova and Non-Unova Pokemon??
      That way both games are viable for the challenge
