Default Community Update: October

No, we're not dead. We're alive and kicking. After we've got the staff situation fixed and website back and caught up...

Updates on Official Sprites
We have completed porting the HGSS sprites onto the site. Afterwards, we will be working on the porting of the B/W sprites once we've got ideas on how to approach the issue at hand.

Site updates
As you may have noticed, we have a new section on Monday laughs. We plan on doing other things during the other times of the week. At the moment, however, we aren't doing anything. If you have any suggestions, post.

Sprite of the month
We will be pushing out a sprite of the month for all you spriters out there. I want you guys to get some recognition on the website. At this moment, we will be randomly picking a sprite we find awesome and put it up on the website as a feature. The first of this will begin this weekend, when I will be posting about the first sprite. Keep spriting guys, you might be the next to be featured. :)

Fanfic of the year 2010
Registration closed about a week ago, meaning that the judging is now in full swing. We will try to update you on progress as much as possible, but no promises there. ;)

Forum Skins
New skins are coming. The problem we have at the moment is implementing it. The issue has been a difficult case to solve. Once it is solved, we will be able to make more skins more quickly.

Pikachu Survivor Game
Been in full swing for a while. Check it out at Pokemon Trivia!

Nice updates, but looking forward to these more. :D

I'm here to bring you your motivational "keep up the good work" chant. That is all!

I made one, once we manage to get that up and working the way its supposed to, I'll gladly work on more and open up the field for others to try and make their own, provided they're good in quality. Right now, administrative access is the real issue, but once that's kicked out of the way, then we'll get into action.

But yes, I would love to see every last one of these boring generic skins replaced with fresh, cool, and interesting skins with various themes and layouts. I'm convinced that if other sites can do it, we can do it too, and even better than they can.

Yay! New forum skins!! Now that was what I've been wanting to hear/see for months!
Best of luck then. ^^

By the way, I'm just cheering on for the improvements! But it will lead to more new members joining Pe2k if there's more new forum skins...

The new skin is actually up, and its called "Pokemon Post-Apocalyptic." If you've played video games like Fallout 3, Fallen Earth, or have seen movies like The Book of Eli, The Road, Children of Men, or something like that, you'll get the theme. Pretty much, its got an "after the bombs" kind of appearance where the header banners and the buttons have a kind of "burnt-out" look, while the banner has "Pokemon Elite 2000, The Main Resource For All Your Pokemon Needs! Even after the apocalypse!" Without a doubt, it looks MUCH cooler than the other default skins.

Currently its in a "draft" test phase, but I have to say, the only issues have been very minor and I've already completed the revisions and sent them to Kenny. But, I'm holding off in making the official announcement until after the revisions have been completed. One of the issues is that some of the text ended up being gray on gray or gray on beige, and its pretty tough to read. That's definitely been addressed in the revision, that text will be changed to black. Rather than posting the announcement and having a dozen people say "I can't read the text!" or whatever, I figured I'd make it official when its ready.

Feel free to check it out though, it looks great even without the revisions.

Hey, glad you like it! I had quite a blast making it.

There will definitely be more on the way. In fact, I had an idea to come up with a kind of PE2K Forum Skin Workshop where anyone and everyone could help with creating skins by coming up with ideas for themes, making banners/buttons/icons, and so on. Even if you're not into graphic or sprite art, any ideas you have for skins and themes could be put into action, or you could simply provide comments on what others have done.

Seriously, the possibilities are endless. And truthfully, it didn't even take me all that long to make this one.

Is it just me or is the new skin changed back to default each time I refresh my page? D:

EDIT: Works now, thanks.

Hmm, haven't had the problem myself.

Might be because of your cache or your cookies. Maybe try clearing them out, and see if that changes anything.
