[Warning: Wall of text] It's been almost a year. Good lord, does time flies fast. Past few months have indeed been very busy, though I do think it's not adequate enough of a reason to disappear for THAT long. I will say that I attempted to go back on December but I forgot my password + the email I used for my account, so there's that lol. Hmm...also I guess add in the loss of interest...? Found things to pour countless of my hours to, that Smogon just got pushed further down. (mostly just games; very addicting games). But yeah, I'm back and most certainly not dead! Announcement of Gen 7 renewed my interest. Also, seeing that the sprite project is kinda nearing its end, I want to join in again and make the final push. And of course, I missed ya'll dearly ;c.
