    [​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

      Pokecharms seems to have a new habit of randomly refreshing. Like, for example, when I'm in the middle of writing a long written work. Is there anyway to fix that?

        It's not really something we'd allow, sorry. If one person rewrote the parts that they didn't write entirely from scratch, they could upload that as their own work, but otherwise it's not something we'd allow right now.

        I've always considered it, but to be honest, the theme changed so often and was so different in layout back then that it wouldn't really do justice to any of the old designs. Plus I'd be plagiarising Doctor Oak's good work :p

        You are allowed to post written works – articles, stories, and so on – about anything, not just Pokémon. However, it has to be creative – if you're just telling people what your favourite anime is, for example, it's not creative, and so should be on your profile or in a thread on the forums. :)

        This means that you won't be told about further replies. The solution is simply to click alerts whenever you see them – even if you don't read the RP or thread straight away, it'll reset the alerts so you get pinged again in future.

        Another thing to check is that you're watching the thread or RP – at the top of the first post in a forum thread or RP, there's a "Watch Thread" button. If it says "Unwatch Thread," you're already watching the thread and you'll be getting alerts for it. If it says "Watch Thread," though, you'll want to click it to re-watch the RP or thread in question.

      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?

        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.
