      I just wanted to say "Hi" because it looks like you actually respond to VMs

        ....hi? Sup?

        Your name looks familiar. Do I know you from Wesnoth forums or was that someone else?

      Could you quote me on "Insulting everyone around you" and the lies in my post. Also whats more severe than an IP ban? something that can easily be evaded.
      I just want to play Pkm. This is kinda ridiculous tbh, no matter what the mods are gonna be impartial and will never acknowledge their faults.

        For one thing, you insulted the mods in the same VM you asked for a quote on insulting everyone around you. My conclusions are really pretty obvious things.

        The mods' job is to make chatrooms a good place for everyone to chat. The most common cause of problems with mods is that you're too selfish to understand that your toxic behavior is making the chat worse for everyone else.

        If it was a single mod, sure, maybe bad mod. If every staff member agrees your behavior is toxic, the problem is you. Stop talking to me and reflect on your own behavior.

      How does one "fix lag"?
      1. View previous comments...
      2. Zarel
        Zarel
        Lag means a long time between you doing something on your computer, and getting a response back. There are a lot of steps involved between when you click something, and when you get the final result, and any of those steps being slow results in lag.
        Sep 17, 2014 at 10:13 PM
      3. Zarel
        Zarel
        Fixing lag involves identifying which one of those steps is slow, and making it faster.

        thanks. best of luck in your endeavors to rid showdown of lag. in the meantime, I will fight the losing battle against the nemesis that is hax. (now if hax is in my favor, I'm all for it)

        I learned code by myself when I was 10ish. PS took a month or two to get to public beta.

      Hey Zarel, could you PLEASE fix the cancel button
      its not working and starting to cost me too many games.
      1. jrm115
        jrm115
        the only reason there is a cancel button at all is if you made your move before your opponent. your client probably sends a message to the servers saying you have made your move and when the server says "cool, so is your opponent" they execute the moves regardless of whether you've cancelled your request. he can't fix it because your computer is what's saying you made your move

        Well, I can by making it react faster. It's essentially a lag issue, and lag is my #1 priority right now.

      I just wanted to thank you for making PS! If it wasn't for you, competitive pokemon may have never become what it has. I'm truly thankful.
      P.S. It is a pretty good team builder

        If somebody spamming the timer is a constant problem, just start the timer at the beginning of the match so they can't turn it on and off. I really doubt you're going to lose because of lag unless you have 150 second lag, which I really doubt

      Hi zarel, I have an interesting idea for a new meta called power trick which basically involves defences and offenses being swapped all of the time. Sorry to bother you but I didn't know who to suggest it to, it would be interesting with like skarmory being offensive and alakazam being a special wall :)
