      Very little will brighten one's day more than having a tiny caterpillar drop onto one's glasses.

        I contributed what was apparently good stuff to the CAP process during the movepool stage on Malaconda, and apparently, Birkal and the rest of the CAP mods thought it would be a good idea to encourage more contributions of that sort by giving me a ladybug for it (or something to that effect).

        There were a couple of other users who got their ladybugs for the same reason at the same time, but I don't remember who they were.

        Same to you! The bit about young dolphins sleeping in their mothers' slipstreams was really cool (and one of comparatively few things in that thread I didn't know before, actually).

        As for political education of other Smogoners, you've got a very effective approach - no-nonsense, but also accessible in that it seems easier to understand and personally connect to than a lot of left dialogue. Lots of what I see is either esoteric and filled with references nobody gets without extensive study, or overly simplistic and adjusts badly to argument (the one problem I have with many fellow anarchists).

        So I've got a lot of respect for that.

        I really enjoy educating people about interesting or important things, but I'm not very good at articulating fine details of my ideal society, so that tends to get dismissed. As such, most of my value as an educator comes from teaching people stuff about biology (I had a particularly entertaining chat with my chemistry professor about spiders just the other day).

        You might have seen me in the Studio. I occasionally lurk in other rooms, but I pretty much never go to the lobby anymore. I go by the name Dwarf Salticid on PS.

        It's fun. Any suggestions on what forums I should check out for competitive and non-competitive stuff? I perused Firebot when I was half asleep and don't really remember much except for the quote database.

        Well, the Competitive Discussion and C&C forums are good for competitive stuff.

        Orange Islands is for non-competitive stuff that's still Pokemon-related. Smeargle's Studio is for art threads (I recommend checking out chameleonskyes' and Nastyjungle's threads, among others). Firebot is just random shit. If the random shit merits serious discussion instead of shitposts, then it goes in Congregation of the Masses.
        ...Also, every so often, we start doing things in CAP. :3

      GS started a huge campaign to try and split smogon, kind of lying to the different section heads and trying to convince them to leave smogon and basically slandered chaos a bunch.

        A catchphrase? That's simple with your avi right now.

        "Please. No more photos/anons/etc."

        I know I suck at finding a catchphrase, but I just wanted to throw those out there.
