    [​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

        No problem. Also, remember the minimodding rule – do not yell at other people for breaking the rules – hit that report button, and we'll do whatever needs doing. Otherwise, you'll just end up flaming people – and if you've got it wrong and they haven't broken the rules, that's really not nice for anyone. Makes sense? :)

      Hey, Teapot! I have a question. So, say I have some LEGOs that I put togtether, but I didn't make the pieces. Then I animate the LEGOs with a stop motion app. Would that be okay for the creative corner? I Don't want a warning.
      1. Teapot
        Teapot
        As long as you put them together yourself, yes, that would be fine. In this case, the LEGO counts as the medium of your art – we wouldn't demand you make your own pencil to sketch with, so making you make your own LEGO bricks is a bit much too, if you get what I mean!

        Okay, that does match. I'm not quite sure why the e-mail isn't coming through, but I think I can sort this out anyway – I'm going to merge the two accounts together, but use your new one as the target. That means you'll keep your new password, and hopefully stay logged in, but get all the content from the old account moved over. :)

      Hey! I was wondering why it said that I hadn't had a birthday on Pokecharms yet even though i've been here since 14 dec of 2015 and my birthday is on nov 26, does it has something to do with when you changed my age?
      1. Teapot
        Teapot
        It probably is, yes. The system only checks whether it's your birthday today or not when deciding to award a trophy, it won't go back and award one if you've had a birthday in the past.
