    [​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

      1. StellarWind Elsydeon

        That's because he was FlamingOrangeEevee, aka a vast number of sockpuppets of the same, and we caught on to him trying to sneak back into 'Charms again even though it's been made abundantly clear that any such attempt will be nucleated upon arrival. SO there's that.

      Hey Teapot, is there some problem with the creative corner at the moment? I've attempted to upload the last part of Green Arrow: Eternal a few times now, but it keeps saying "A server error occurred." Is it because of all the tags added to it for all the characters used or is it a problem with Charms itself?
      1. Teapot
        Teapot
        It probably exceeds the tag limit. Try reducing it to about 20 tags or less and try again.

        It is most likely on your side, try checking your phone clock/ date and time in the settings and try to align it with your timezone or just add 3 hours to it since that seems to be the problem right now

      I have a slight question. I want to start a thread that has something to do with the damage calculation in the core series' Pokemon games. What kind of forum would that go in?
      1. Merciless Medic
        Merciless Medic
        Also, this "something" is basically having people come up with a scenario they had in mind and I can calculate the damage for them. Seems like a very small thing to do and the damage calculator on Pokemon Showdown is better though, but it is just interesting to have. I was going to go through the process of what I did, too and wasn't so sure if I could take the picture from Bulbapedia of the damage formula.

I tried creating a PC with Stellar about it, since the PRP rules state that Stellar's the one to ask about that. However, I posted that on Saturday and still haven't gotten a response... Is there anyone else I might be able to ask about it?

      So I’ve been wanting to ask this now since I’m probably the only person here that uses younger characters a little too much... and I have been wondering, is there anything in the rules having a baby version of Pokémon that do not evolve? (By that, I mean like having a younger version of a Heatmor for example since normally the species is depicted as being big and does not have any evolutions.)

        Any question regarding "is there anything in the rules" can be clarified, by, you know, reading the rules. If it isn't mentioned in the rules as prohibited, it isn't prohibited! A younger, smaller, etc. version of a Pokemon is fundamentally the same as an odd color morph or having a scar or something like that. They happen and are perfectly fine.

      Hmm... I would have to presume that there is a limit to how big my signature could be after looking at my signature a bit more carefully. (Which brings me the question of is the limit based on the amount of content or the size of it, as in the amount of space it takes up when one were to look at the signature at first.)

      So, I've been noticing something when people are tagging other members in RP forums or when posting art. If there are too many tags on the post, they will all cancel each other out and not tag anybody at all. My question is, do you know the limit of how many people can be tagged in a post before they cancel each other out?

      I’d like to ask a quick question reguarding the ignore function. So, when I ignore someone, what specifically happens when I ignore that person? (I.e. They cannot message me and I cannot message them, my online status is invisible to them, they cannot see my name at all, etc.)

        Given we have to make every single panel individually, I'd say that's unlikely at this point, not least because I'm already behind on TCM stuff and don't have any hopes of catching up for a while.

      Heya, Teapot!

      So our RP's discussion has been nearly completely moved over to a conversation, as our discussion thread was getting far too cluttered. However, we've reached our limit of people, and two more are already wanting to join. Would it be possible to expand the conversation limit, so that we can add more people from the RP into the discussion?
