    Awesome, sim, aeo - I'm really enjoying it :D

    Is it possible to add the time of text entry on the main chat? You know, where the time of the text entered are displayed to the left of users' names? It's not really necessary, but it feels awkward not being there, too...

    Does that mean you use node.js as a backend?
    And tbh, that what I already have over PO list looks like it was written by promoter, not programmer, most of the items are pretty far-fetched.

    Except for the mod format (which I wouldn't know shit about anyway), they are all implemented.

    Yes.

    Could you clarify?

    Mod format is technically implemented; I just haven't open-sourced the code yet.

    Wait you have permission to use Kyledove's battle backgrounds? I'm pretty sure they're private, unfortunately :\

    Also, I can't connect. It says:
    Initializing... DONE
    Loading libraries... DONE
    Loading client... DONE
    Connecting to login server... DONE
    Connecting to Showdown server...

    And just stays like that.

    He says they were donated, so I assume that would mean he has permission to use them.

    Does Showdown allow for different servers to be hosted? I'm really thinking /tr/ will do much better, activity-wise, here

    This is awesome.

    But, i seem to have issues connecting this morning.

    It says:

    Initializing... DONE
    Loading libraries... DONE
    Loading client... DONE
    Connecting to login server...

    Then just stops.

    Is it down or something?

    should it stay like this with the connecting to showdown server... it just means its your internet. you can try multiple internet browsers (for me it only works on ie9 and no other browser), however if there is no connecting to showdown server, then the server is down

    I think it's to do with parental controls. I tried going on with my Mum's laptop and it worked fine. I'm getting a new laptop anyway.


    Btw, a question; Will you ever be adding Little Cup?
