General Discussion / It was nice to see you all again
« on: February 02, 2020, 06:54:06 am »
You know what they say: it's better to burn out than to fade away! It seems like my time has come to choose, so it's only common decency to give a few words to a site and community that's been as important to me as this one, and in my life for more than half of it at that!

While leaving may seem over the top, there's only so much pressure I can take, and whatever desire I have remaining to continue updating and maintaining the site is outweighed by the heavy realization my involvement isn't as valued as I had thought it was. I'm not one for permanent declarations of anything, so it's more likely than not that I will still appear again. I just know I need some time away.

As the only admin both interested in the subject material and active on Discord, I would not have forgiven myself if despite my standing, I was still too afraid to speak up. I'm relieved that I overcame that hesitation, especially seeing as it paved the way to discovering what the community truly thought of me being here. It's certainly not the first time this has happened, so thank all of you for being honest and not prolonging this unnecessarily for me!

This site was the first I ever became a significant part of and the first I moderated, and as time went on I realized more and more how much my early time here shaped my views of how to communicate on the Internet, as well as how moderation and leadership of small groups in general ought to be conducted. This was a driving force behind my latest phase of activity, and while the results of providing new users a helping hand and bringing the knowledge base up to speed have been mixed, I'm glad to have done what I have and also to have a clear indication of when to stop.

Having done everything I could think of for this community in the two years since I returned, it's with a clear head that I can finally step away, knowing now that this is another way I can help.

Thank you!

I just realized...

Users in Discord tested this on both VC and a handful of emulators, but didn't come up with anything. I should bug them more about posting here, but they concluded they needed a save file to see what was up.

I help with spreadsheets at an office, filling them up and organizing and all that sort of thing. I don't feel like going into too much specifics, but it's a perfect situation for me even if it took some time finding its way over here. I recall you saying you...actually, I don't remember!
Gonna have to lock this, as there's no discussion happening or info that's new in spite of the misleading title.

Yeah! :D This'll be the difference between buying and not buying it for me. Anyone here played it?

Your username is indeed a lie! Nice. :D
Haven't gotten around to testing this yet, which I should just to be sure, but it seems like a very...unnatural occurrence. Under what circumstances are you playing? Virtual Console, or which emulator?

^ That's making me want to do an /r/expanddong repost so bad, but don't want to risk it at work. :P

Might just be me, but I'd rather not take it that far.

I think we're losing sight of what's really important here, which is that if Fred Durst went above the speed limit, he'd be Sped Durst.

I'm probably going to just stick to watching them like most people, especially considering I'm not good at Mario.

Kaizo hacks are threatening to make me finally care about Mario.

Get a load of this! :D

When viewing the full play area, selecting a Pokémon on your bench and then hitting Down and A at the same time while exiting the viewing screen will end the duel. It's not guaranteed to succeed and only works in particular versions; details are in entrpntr's writeup (including other potential effects and why they happen), but thankfully it's not a one-frame trick. Since the default "last winner" is the player, this can be used to skip the tutorial at the beginning as well as all subsequent duels. It's a whole new way to run the game!

That's an extremely small amount of speedrunners, to clarify. Even someone with over 100 attempts in a glitched route (like me before coming back here) almost certainly doesn't have a clue how the expanded item menu actually works or even what each quantity or index number corresponds to what observable effect. Guides are very thorough if you know where to find them (the absence of a centralized location still bothers me), but only on the directions, not what to actually do. Even on a CatExt leaderboard, you'll have maybe five who know what they're doing, and they're likely either the ones who came up with the category or the most recent route for it. The size of the community is very misleading, and the reason it's so large is that you don't need to know anything about how the games work in order to be involved. For disassemblers it's true, but they're few and far between. And I think this is totally fine. Without a large pool of interested people, you won't get the handful of those who dive further.

Nothing wrong (or gendered) with a bit of saltiness either; it happens to all of us.
