Heyhey, I'm still lurking every day. ;v;

Since it appears we're all just leaving goodbyes and such here, I'll leave you with this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rP_V07Cp6I&feature=iv&src_vid=ZJLr_O6lhrY&annotation_id=annotation_325498

Accurately sums up my experience on this site. Also, it's weird to see your signature hasn't changed from that old RP, Fenror. It brings back memories, lol.
What is this nonsense? xD

This is what sums up my experience on this site.

No, no, you're right. That wasn't the right song to sum up my experience, this is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaJezu6OnNw

The tears, they are rolling. I remember joining this site as a happy little teen who knew absolutely nothing of the metagame, and more importantly, how to conduct himself online. Watching this project and spreading the word and watching some of the madness back in IRC chat was a ride for me, and I learned a lot from you guys. It's sad to see the project I've been waiting ever so patiently (since 2009 I believe) for go, but at least the site will remain, along with most of the memories we've all made here.

Time has definitely flown since I joined PU. Now I'm in college, majoring in digital arts / computer programming to become a game dev myself. I want to make this dream a reality someday.

Thank you Mr.Dark and the PU team for this experience. I'll never forget the friends I've made here.

I am unsure if the Facebook page is being monitored or not, but I had a pretty good idea for those of you that have lost the time in trying to keep this project alive. Now I haven't been on here for quite some time. And I really regret that decision. I'm going to be going to college in a couple of months as I am getting out of the military. How ever my brilliant idea is this.... Why don't we start a kick starter for this project? There are so many people thousands probably millions of people that are wanting to play this game and it has been your little child for the past 5 years. Now I understand that has been awhile but you have come so close.. got a beta out for testing and you're throwing everything away :( it is sad really. This game will make history as it will be the best pokemon game out there that I can think of. It might take a little bit of time yes.. but I believe that if we were to start a kick starter it might just swade your ideas of: "I'm not really getting anything out of this therefore I'm going to start other side projects"... Into: "let's get this done and out so people can enjoy it."

Hmmm... Wouldn't that give copyright problems if we sent the game in for kick starter? ó_o

So I just checked the rules and regulations for Kick Starting a project. and we fall into the qualifying terms. its not copyright (unless after publication we might have to change name because pokemon universe is for wiiU now) ... other than that here are links to rules and prohibited items for kick start

https://www.kickstarter.com/rules?ref=learn_category_games
https://www.kickstarter.com/rules/prohibited

What are people's thoughts about kick starting this project?

Not a bad idea but i think the problem is that alot of the people dont have enough time to do this, if it would work that is awesome but people would have to be willing

In order to kickstart the project, you would need a few things:

-A dedicated programmer who would take over writing the code

-A team of artists

-Writers

-Web Developers

-Advertisers

-Testers

So far, we have maybe one or two people in a couple of the groups (I quit writing myself, so that leaves spirit and declan if they are on board). Once you have all those, then you can start a kickstarter because people want to see that the parts are there, it just needs money to back it up.

Personally I think making a pokemon MMO is not the best idea anymore. Nintendo is fairly strict and having your game shut down after all the blood,sweat, and tears would be pretty horrible(and not to mention possibly very costly). 

I would love to work on a turn based monster fighting MMO ,but would definitely want it to be original content. Think along the same line as pokemon ,but a bit more grown up. I think their is a very real market for a game like that ,but using pokemon's name is just to risky in my opinion.

Imo this is not exactly so... Because a pokemon mmo has already happened https://pokemmo.eu/ .... It would be sad to see that one go through but not this one we have been working on... We have already put in a lot of blood sweat and tears to get as far as we have gone. But just like tickles said we need to find people that are on board that will be willing to pick up the legacy
