Alch, please, one day when you've just finished a chapter of your new bestseller or sit down to take a break from practicing your instrument, visit Smogon. Look at Pokemon Amethyst, see how far we will have taken it. It won't be the same without you, though. D:
Leaving?? That sucks. I really enjoyed your art articles over at The Smog. You were such a main integral in bringing art to life there. Seriously, I don't think much of the other articles could compare well to your dedication of teaching people art.
Pester Fate to continue the articles before you leave, so when he comes back, he'll have to do them! And sorry I didn't get to know you well. Cya!
i think smogon's recognition problem has always been its biggest fault. the way people think people should be rewarded is with responsibility and authority. this means some that deserve it will get shut out and some that do deserve it that aren't responsible will ruin the site forever. i wish there were an easier way to tell people "great job!"
the only reason i stuck around Smogon for awhile was because i wanted to get my name in the credits - i wanted to be recorded as someone with an impact on competitive battling... maybe something like that
