  • About

    [​IMG]Hi! I'm Teapot, and I'm an administrator here at Pokécharms. I'm in charge of keeping the technical side of things like the servers and code working. I also look after the Playground, so I'm your best bet for getting new forum games started. :)

    I like Eevee tamers, Porygon-Z, Shedinja, Pokémon breeding and trading, coding websites, and plotting to take over the world.

    Many thanks to @Kimiko Nobuko for my current avatar!

    Image by @StellarWind Elsydeon - thank you!

      Hey, so me and friends are planning out where we want to go during the UAM (Utah Ambassadors of Music) tour of Europe this summer. I know you told me I had to get crepes in Paris, but do you know anywhere else in London or Paris that I should visit? Like restaurants or anything? Thanks :)

        I've never been to Paris so I couldn't say, but there's loads of interesting places in London – most of the museums are worth visiting, especially the Natural History Museum. The London Eye is fun too, if you can get onto it on a nice day!.

      @Teapot, I need help... My profile was updated a couple mins ago as I was adding in a Q &a A thing and my pokesonas list. If you take a look, they are all joined together and I can't get out of it. If you go to "about me" then it appears then "Pokesonas!" Then when Pokesonas is done, the rest of my profile comes up. Can you please help...

      A thought: Pokémon Stars will be the first main Pokémon game to have your character own the console you're physically playing the game on.

        Hmmm. There's one slightly odd IP listing – on Saturday, there was an IP that claims to be from a Best Buy IP in Minnesota. Now, take this with a pinch of salt as IP locations are quite often dead wrong, but that one looks a bit weird. The rest are all reporting from somewhere in Utah, though.

        No problem. :) In that case, there's nothing particularly obviously wrong from your IP log, and to be honest, I think the alerts system is just being funky in general. I really don't know why, though.

        Yup, you can put your YouTube link there, or as part of a status update. :) Our rule against advertising is mostly for the more "public" areas of the site, like the forums and Creative Corner. As you can imagine, we're less interested in policing profiles unless we absolutely have to, as it's your personal space.

      Hey Teapot! Sorry to bother you, but I was just wondering if there is any way you could get rid of the "Formerly Viviaren" title from under my username. It has been bothering me for months, and it seems that it eventually goes away for most other users that have had a name change, but it won't go away for me? Thanks in advance.
      1. Teapot

        Whoops, my bad. That was a holdout from when we used to change names manually – we had to remember to go back and remove the title after a while, but that clearly never happened in this case. Sorry about that!
