I was there, but I was in the middle of balancing pokemon and working on a new map for PU. Sorry I didn't respond. Say my name in chat next time so it will ping me.

I would've hung around longer, but my dad asked if I wanted to go drive for a while. I didn't even think to ping you, I should have thought of that.

I have a question about the balance server. Is it possible to use six of the same Pokemon in a team? I want to make an extremely annoying Zubat team, but I'm not sure if it will let me. I don't think vanilla PO allows it.

No, that would put you in the banned tier.
V1 and V2 of PO are the same except that it has a different script because scripts from V1 don't work with V2.

Well then, I guess I'll have to make an army of annoying Pokemon found in caves instead of an army of Zubat.

That reminds me, how far has the balancing gotten? I stopped keeping up to date with that after I left.

By vanilla PO, I meant unmodded PO.

Ah, I thought you meant the V1 balance server.

All fully evolved pokes and some not fully evolved are all balanced up to gen 6. Some gen 6 are balanced too but not many.

Hey guys, it's good to see that the forums have gotten a little more active while I've been gone. Did I miss anything significant? I see that the dev team is giving the karma system another try, it should be interesting to see if people use it properly or not (I don't think there's a single forum I've seen that doesn't abuse the karma system though).

Also, my internet is fast now. Very fast.

I had a few similes to express just how fast it is, but I don't think the admins would appreciate me posting them on the forum. They were incredibly witty though. And by that I mean they would have lowered the IQ of everyone who read them by at least 10 points. Not that an IQ score is actually indicative of one's intelligence, but that's a different topic entirely.

It's 10mbps, which is 1.25MB/s. There's faster speeds out there, but this is the fastest speed available out here. It's a hell of a lot faster than the 0.67mbps we were getting before. Our upload speed is only 50kb/s or so, but it was only 15 before.

You know what's really ridiculous though? CenturyTel was charging us $100 a month for our old internet speed and bundled phone stuff. We only have to pay $70 a month now.

On a semi-related topic, we're going to get Hulu and Netflix now that we have good internet. We're telling DirecTV that they can shove their satellite dish up their ass sideways.

I get 20mbps here, which is about as high as it goes without costing stupid money. For some reason my upload is 25 though, something I never really understood

Damn, glad I'm living in The Netherlands, because you guys are getting ripped off on your internet. I have 150Mbit (up/down) for only 50EUR/month. And yes I get full speed ;)

150 up/down with no monthly download limits for 79 USD a month. It's a bundle with cable, internet and phone.
Nothing better then downloading something that's 1gig in less then 15 minutes. With our old internet it would have taken 2-3 hours.
Though I miss my college where we had T2 internet speed. Now THAT is speed.

We're going to be keeping a close eye on it. Anyone found abusing the karma system will be temp banned / fully banned.

Finally I got my trusted desktop back after some hectic matters. =w=;

Claiming that someone else's marriage is against your religion is like being angry at someone for eating a doughnut because you're on a diet.
