    [​IMG]

    Hi! i'm Emily, and I'm an administrator here at Pokécharms. I help run the site, build new features, and fix things when they go awry. In real life, I'm a programmer from England, and aside from Pokémon, I'm fond of other Nintendo games (like Metroid), FPS games, movies, and anime.

    My favourite Pokémon is Porygon-Z, but I’m also fond of the “derp trifecta” – Dunsparce, Bidoof, and Stunfisk. In-game, I like filling my Pokédex and occasionally breeding competitive teams – but I’m not very good at battling!

    Feel free to ask me anything – I’m here to help!

    Many thanks to @Acel for my current avatar
    About Me Image by @StellarWind Elsydeon - thank you!

      Are you capable of adding the number 420 when replying to a post like with the status thing? I was writing something and pressed post and then it said a message must be under 420 characters. I had to delete a lot to post it. Or is 420 charcters just two sentences?
      1. Teapot

        It's about a paragraph of text, but you can just copy the last couple of sentences into another comment to get around the limit. Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to add a number there, sorry.

      Would you mind educating me on the way the staffing system works on here? I've always been curious about how people become moderators, so I decided to ask (and yes, also because I want to know if I can have a shot at it)

        It's also worth emphasising that staffing here is not something to be taken lightly – all the staff treat their duties as a part-time job, with major responsibilities and a commitment to do the right thing by the site and its members. It's not something you can just do for fun.

        Especially the second point, it's exactly what I always thought would be the best way to hope for a role as a moderator, as something you can't exactly fake, it's either you're a good member of the community, or you're not

        Apologizing after breaking the rules does not excuse you, I'm afraid. Unless another staff member decides to intervene on your behalf, your accounts have been merged and read only'd as would be the case for anyone else who breaks that particular rule.

      Hey, for the last few hours, Alerts have completely shut down. No emails, no nothing. Not even coming up if I click the alerts list, until about 5 mins after said post. Think you could take a look?

        Alerts are working fine for me, including emails. I'll try and see what's going on.

        It's on everything :) It may be below all the posts if your screen is small enough, though.
