Coming 1st March - A Whole New Pokecharms

    [img align=left]http://www.pokecharms.com/random/pokecharms2010.png[/img]At midnight (GMT) on 1st March 2010, Pokecharms.com will be relaunching with a whole new look and a wealth of new (or, returning) content, features and updates across the board.

    This has been quite a while coming, following 2009's relatively quiet year without any major updates or new features for the site - but, finally, next week we'll be launching our new design, new Pokedex, new Staff Showcase feature and more.

    In order to work on getting all this up and working properly (as well as to clean out some of the clutter lying on the server), Pokecharms will be completely unavailable from Friday 26th February, through to the midnight re-launch. As such, the forums will be unavailable, and we apologise for that inconvenience - however, when they return, we'll be on the newest version with a wealth of new options and features to try and make up for it.

    We're really looking forward to finally being able to share all the stuff we've been working on for the site over the past year and are really looking forward to a renewed Pokecharms - ripe and ready for the Fifth Generation - and we hope you will be too.

      I think the posts will be ok, it's only during, server swaps I think, that some posts get eaten.

      Also, this is good news indeed =D

      It's a pretty rare occurrence for any issues with transferring posts, actually. We've had some problems in the past - but those have been due to rather extraneous circumstances (hacking, server splosions, etc). By taking the forums down to make sure all the work can be done safely on the latest database source, there wont be any problems.

      I -have- been sorely tempted to start the forums from scratch ('cos the database is fairly messy from years of constant upgrading - it's not even a native SMF database...) but these days it isn't really an option because far too much would be lost.

      Yippee! The long awaited new layout of Pokecharms! I'm sure that the wait will be more than worthwhile, too! ^^

      Dude, may I say awesome? I do hope the change isn't too drastic, however, though this just may be the AS talking. :p

      The only thing I don't like the the hiatus, though I do realize it is necessary. I'll miss this cereal and Pokemon-based site.

      Exciting I hope it doesn't turn out like the new facebook layout it where everyone bitches about it but the only problem is a minor inconvenience and with the upgrade is their gonna be a new Pokemon trainer card maker I believe somewhere I saw that topic mentioned before on the site
