      Hilariously enough, at the same time you edited to say my post was a ping-pong, I deleted it because it was a ping-pong. Going to delay a bit before I post again to prevent issues.

      Weird thing is, I was certain it wasn't a ping-pong when I posted it... So next time, I'm triple-checking before posting.

        Durbe posted a ping pong post and then deleted it. That's where your confusion came from.
        These things happen.

      So... RM13 should end or reboot when my plan has completed. You wouldn't be willing to do that, though, would you?...

        I'll think of something, then. But it'll have to be tomorrow. It's almost midnight here.

        It's nearly 1:00 AM here. :P I'd have waited until tomorrow anyway.

        On a side note, looking forward to siding with or competing against you in Up vs Down version 50. :)

        Why thank you. US Presidents Mafia I has finished, and something new is about to take its place. Something exciting. Also, keep an eye on the other F&G staffers. They'll probably be copying me.

        Would it be alright with you if, in the event that you decide not to be a gym leader, I take over the Steel gym?

        I was planning on being the Dragon or Fighting gym leader for the upcoming season, but I recently found out that the Mega Stones for several key Mega Evolutions of those types are not in Sun or Moon.

        Sounds good. I'll make a post in the PM thread, specifying that I'd only want to take over if you decide you can't or don't want to run the gym going forward.

        Will do, but I probably never will. Aside from the Sega Genesis and a time when I borrowed a friend's N64, I never really had any game consoles, other than the handhelds.

    First and foremost, NO! I am not chuggaaconroy in a clever disguise.
    I'm an Orthodox Jewish, left handed, mechanical engineer with a penchant for puns and cooking.
    I've been a fan of the Pokemon games since Gen I, but I actually do appreciate and enjoy the new games up to and including Sun & Moon.
    I'm a big fan of strategy board games, such as Illuminati, Dominion, Ticket to Ride, Small World, and Robo Rally.
    I'm not really into competitive battling, although it does look interesting. The last time I had a "serious" multiplayer battle was back in Gen III, during the days of the Game Boy Advanced and the Link Cable...man I feel old sometimes.
    Somehow, I managed to become a moderator in the Fun & Games and The War Room. Not quite sure how I managed to pull that off, but I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve the users on this forum.
    They're also allowing me to help out with the official Bulbagarden YouTube channel, as a script writer and guest commentator. Expect a lot more puns on the channel in the near future. :p
    At the end of the day, I just like making other people laugh. That said, I'm pretty sure groaning doesn't count as laughing. Perhaps I should rethink my strategy?
