    [​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

      Hey Teapot I was wondering why the little Drifbloon thing on the right isn't showing up anymore when I scroll? It was very useful but now I don't see it anymore.

      I had received 23 alerts and tried to look at all my alerts, but I only was able to look at 18 when I went to "Show All"... Was there an update with the alert viewing system that caused this and can this be remedied?

      Hey Teapot, nothing urgent BUT whenever I visit Pokécharms these days I get an error message of sort. It says: "Security error occured. Please refresh the page and try again." In an addition to that the most recent profile messages have stayed the same for some weeks now and their date remains as yesterday.

        It's the same with the trainercards and artwork + I can't see the alerts pop up unless I click "show all". Any idea what's going on? Thanks!

      Out of curiousity, is there a character limit on posts? It's been bugging me a bit :p

        Yup, there is. There is a 140 character limit on profile posts, I think around 420-460 character limit on profile post comments, and a 20,000 character limit on signatures (which I have broken before).

        I'm pretty sure it's 420 for profile post comments.

        Also I only know the signature limit because of a status I saw mentioning it, though I might reach it if I keep adding ton of stuff to it...

      Is there already a thread used for helping people make starting roleplay posts or how to be better at RP? Or if there isn't, where can I put such a thread? I want to help people get better and recruit others who want to do the same.

      Hey, I was wondering how the creative corner shows all of the most liked pieces. Is it based off of recent post or just in general? I've seen it sometimes where art has 100 likes, and then a month later the top art had only 40. How does that work, per se?
    15. Kiraru

      Quick Question: Would there be a way to make the thread in a more private setting so that only certain people can post in it? (I am asking this since I may be creating an RP in the soon time and I have been seeing that having people intrude upon certain RP threads is not as fun to deal with for everyone.)
      1. Teapot
        Teapot
        Only conversations offer that feature, I’m afraid.

        In the role play section, you can always report posts that aren’t supposed to be there and we’ll promptly remove them for you.

      Hi; during the development of my account, I entered in the wrong date of birth to my profile. I originally thought this was no big deal since I could hide my age. Then I discovered that it matters what age you enter into an online account. Can I change it? The day is the same; the year is different.

        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.
