    [​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 Kimiko Nobuko for my current avatar

      *Pailosar calmly speaks in his translator* So, about the matter of a fan made Pokémon having legendary caliber power... is that referring to legendary Pokémon only or to Pokémon with overpowering strengths? (Example: A Pokémon of the baby form of its evolutions having the ability to make most enemies panic and render them helpless for around three to five seconds.)
      1. Teapot
        Teapot
        It refers to both, really. After all, the ability you describe sounds like godmoding, which would be frowned upon in RP anyway.

        Well alright, and I was just using that last part as an example here. I suppose some of my more highly powered Pokémon could use a bit of fine tuning on the damage in spite of the dangerous downsides on the user it has.

        TBH The FCC trying to repeal Net Neutrality doesn’t scare me. It just grinds my gears. In a sense it’s disregarding democracy in favor of capitalism. The majority of the US have spoken up about how they want Net Neutrality around, and Ajit won’t listen. He just wants to line his pockets. But on the bright side maybe now people will send some of the Trump hate to Ajit instead of it all to Trump.

        I’ve been following this whole scenario for a while, and while Net Neutrality isn’t that old, it’s still more fair and widely used. In this day and age, it should be classified as a public utility as many people’s lives and businesses are built upon the Internet. Removing Net Neutrality hurts them and creates room for a Monolpoly on certain sites later.

      *A Neourk could be seen dressed in his fancy uniform while holding his Luger P08, as he speaks into his translator* Umm... s- so... is there anything about having weapons in the world of Pokémon? (Just needing to ask this since there's been weapons in the old animes and I would like to clear this matter as soon as possible.)
      1. Teapot
        Teapot
        We don't have any rules on weapons, so if you wanted to include them, you could. Of course, if those weapons re going to be used in anger, you will need to tag the RP as having violence in it. :)

        *the Neourk hides his tear gas bomb after reading the list of weapons that are illegal to possess in most areas* Well alright, I could perfectly understand having to tag for violence and such. Thank you for clarifying about the matters of weapons. (The Luger was modified to fire sonic rounds made from compressed air and reloading it is a bit different than usual.)

      Hey, this is a little bit of a serious question for you, and you've probably already seen it. What do you think about Net Neutrality?
      Well, the repeal for it?
      What do you think it's going to do to us? And would saying something about it to Congress really going to help?
      I'm a little frightened of it, to be honest...

      I know you live somewhere else, but I'd like to get your thoughts on the subject...
      1. Pretty Pichu
        Pretty Pichu
        If you haven't heard what Net Neutrality is, it's basically an act where everybody receives anonymity, free internet, and they are able to look at whatever they want.

        They are going to repeal it in a month, where it's going to allow the internet to be a more profitable place (when money is already being made through it), but also track everyone's movements online and force them to pay for certain daily subscriptions, like "$5 a day to get on Youtube for the entertainment package"...

      I have a question: Would it be alright to use Pokemon from the Pokefarm Q site? They don't exactly have stats, abilities, or moves on their Pokemon, so I would be making some for them, but I would like to use their concepts for certain Pokemon, like certain Megas only founded in Pokefarm Q, as well as certain variant Pokemon species and their own fakemons. Would this be plagiarizing?

      Hey, Teapot~
      So, I wanted to make a regional journey type of RP, but I know from experience that those kinds of things can tend to attract people that could use a lesson in grammar and I want it to be a quality RP. I know I'm going to have to turn down some people if I do this, but I don't exactly know how to do that without crossing a line into blatant rudeness. Do you have any suggestions?
      1. Teapot
        Teapot
        Just remember: Be polite, be factual, be kind. If you need to reject someone, try saying something like: “Sorry, I can’t approve your application because your writing isn’t up to the standard I’m looking for in this RP.” If you wanted to go the extra mile, you could explain why their writing isn’t up to standard and how they can improve. Hope that helps :)

      Hey, @Teapot ! I hope I'm not bothering you, but I have a quick question. Are collaboration works (when all creators are mentioned) allowed on the Creative Corner?

Thank you for your time! ^^' (also, sorry if this question, or similar questions, have already been asked °^°' )

        I don't think we have anything written down about it, but we tend to allow collaborations if all authors are active on 'Charms and whomever posts the work credits the other authors in each work's summary. :) Generally, just be smart about it – as long as it doesn't look like you're claiming someone else's work as your own, you'll be fine. :)

        If it's going to be very similar, editing the existing work is a far better option – that way you know people are always going to see the updated, better version. :) If it's a total rewrite or otherwise so different that it could be considered a totally different piece of work, it makes sense to post it afresh, but if it's going to be very similar, editing is better. That make sense? :)

      Question: What is the Creative Archive for? It hasn't been touched in years, it seems. XD

        Before the Creative Corner existed, people used to post works in the forums. The Creative Archive is where we keep those old works for prosperity. :)

      Hey Teapot? Does the appearance/layout of Pokecharms change on certain devices, or is there a button or something that changes it? I got a new laptop with a detachable keyboard sometime in June, and after being on Pokecharms for a little bit with my laptop the appearance kinda changed.

        The sidebar drops to the bottom when your device is too small to show both at once – that'll probably be your issue. If you can't see the sidebar, just scroll down :)

        Oh! I'm being silly, I know what it is. I'll PM you a screenshot with how to fix it...

      Hey, Teapot, I have this friend that likes to write collaborative stories with me and other people, but they're more or less like short RPs where the only rule is it has to make sense. We're starting a new one soon, and I was wondering if I'd be able to post it as a written work(with approval from her, of course).

        I think that's okay, provided your friend is a member on Pokécharms and you credit them in each work's summary. :)

        She's actually not a member of Pokecharms. Actually, she is, but she never uses her account.

        Well, what would be ideal is if you could ask her to log in and comment on this profile post – just so I know she's agreed to it :)
