• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

    For more information, see this thread

    Sorry for the delayed response on this, but I can certainly confirm it is a great, great pleasure to see this thread is still active after all these years. Perhaps my greatest ever achievement? :O

    Hey I'm really sorry for being so terrible and not replying after you sent me this ages ago. I'm sorry to be so rubbish but I simply haven't read it yet as it's been a crazy busy couple of weeks. I am hoping to find time to do so tomorrow but I really can't promise anything. What I can promise...

    TEEN: Brotherhood [4th June - Chapter 7: Reunion]

    Hey all, thought I would just let you know that I'm officially moving this to a monthly rather than weekly update so I can keep up with it while still managing other aspects of my life - first Monday of the month is the new update day :)

    Definitely! Do you want to just shoot me a PM when it's ready to look at?

    TEEN: Brotherhood [4th June - Chapter 7: Reunion]

    @Ambyssin Thanks very much for the review and sorry that the pacing of this chapter seems to have undermined a lot of the enjoyability for you. I think I am starting to find a bit tricky to balance giving readers enough understanding of what's happening to stay engaged and enjoying against...

    TEEN: uA's "Different Eyes" [Chapter Six]

    Have just read your reply and also Chapter 3. I think you're probably right about Chapters 1 and 2 becoming one together: although the beginning and end of each of them is quite neatly and nicely done I feel the story would benefit from being taken a bit further forward at that stage. On a...

    TEEN: Brotherhood [4th June - Chapter 7: Reunion]

    Chapter 7 – Reunion Max and Frankie desperately clung on to each other’s bodies as they barely held themselves in place on Magneton whizzing above Johto at a frightening speed. Will supported himself on top of the central head seemingly effortlessly. He must have done this before. They were so...

    TEEN: Brotherhood [4th June - Chapter 7: Reunion]

    Sorry again for the hiatus, folks. It's been a rough month. Anyway, Chapter 7 is finally here, and I'm hoping to get back to my weekly schedule from here on out! Wish me luck! Chapter 7 incoming :)

    DISCUSSION: Reviews versus Replies

    But who's to say that everyone is posting just to improve and get better... or that they even should be? Perhaps they just have something to share and they're interested in what people think. I think being encouraged by people letting you know they're reading and enjoying is perfectly reasonable...

    Yes, I think you've absolutely hit the nail on the head with that! Have you seen the thread I posted last night in the Written Word subforum? I think you'd find the posts there interesting and if you felt like saying something I think that would be great too!

    Hey, not at all! I really enjoyed both of your replies - the idea was most certainly to generate discussion rather than to put forward an agenda! I think what you wrote was very helpful, insightful, and a very valuable contribution to the discussion.

    I'm really pleased that this has generated such a discussion! For the record, I don't think there is anything that can "be done" from an overall, structural point of view, and certainly not by the mods. (I was a WW mod once upon a time and as @AceTrainer14 has pointed out we certainly had this...

    TEEN: Brotherhood [4th June - Chapter 7: Reunion]

    Hey all, thanks so much for your comments! Unfortunately it looks like the hiatus is going to continue a little longer, but I've at least been able to start making serious progress again so I don't think it'll be much longer. After that, I should be able to re-establish the weekly schedule...

    DISCUSSION: Reviews versus Replies

    @Arkadelphiak I think "good for the ego but not much else" is a bit of an oversimplification, but even so - is that really a problem? I think it takes a lot of courage and vulnerability to share your creative work and a quick comment that essentially tells you "hey, this was worth sharing" can...

    @Ambyssin I totally agree and for the record I have always found your comments extremely helpful so thank you for them :)
