Alreet! PA! v10 is Open for Business!

OK, I think I’ve just about done everything I feel I need to do for this site! More importantly, I’ve done everything so that I DON’T have to do anything else for a LONG while and I can get to doing OTHER things now. (Obsessive-Compulsiveness is a real pain in the ass…)

Anyways, as you may notice I’ve finally got the site design finally squared around, as well as added some ACTUAL CONTENT to the site. Here’s a quick rundown of the site:

  • “LATEST” NEWS — I don’t intend on updating this place often; it’s simply a forum for me to post my views on the world of Pokémon and be slightly useful and relevant in it. As such, this is where my post recent posts about things will be.
  • “LATEST” COMMENTS — If YOU plan on saying something, the last five of you will have your comments shown here.
  • PAGES & JUNK — This is where any of my important content will go. As you can tell, I’ve already posted a few things already:
    • TCG Print Run — Each set has a print run, which is a specific order that the commons and uncommons (and rares?) are printed in and subequently cut and packed. I plan on unlocking the print runs for every set from B/W for some… use…
    • Pokédex 3D AR Code Guide — This covers info about the AR code system in the Pokédex 3D app/”game” for Nintendo 3DS.
    • Pokémon VG Type Info — Anything about the video game that is of any generic use will be here, although I may split this up into individual sections later.
    • PokéWalker & Dream World Tiers — Info I use for myself concerning what Pokémon you can find and what tier they are in—according to Smogon’s tier system. I guess maybe other people could find it useful too…
    • Primitto Theory — My theory on where Pokémon come from…
  • ARCHIVES — Old posts I write can be found there, along with links to old versions of PA!. There is a treasure trove of info on those sites which I don’t really intend on resurrecting on this version of the site… so if you want to read it, go there.
  • META — That’s more for me than you.

And there we have it. The “new” and “improved” Pokémon Aaah!. Which is now more of a bjournal than a site, but whatever. It exists only just to be something small yet useful.

Just About Done!

As some of you MAY have noticed, I’ve fnally gotten around to getting PA! in shape. In fact, it’s just about ready to go; I have just a few little tweeks left to do–such as adding a “racing stripe” to each post’s title bar, as well as editing the “Single Post” design to make it more consistant with the design of my news posts.

I also need to look into adding a method for me to add a “sub-post” text to all my posts… on my old site I used them for snarky or non-news related comments about life or myself. This time, however, I intend to use it as a “TL;RD” text, which sums up my post in a single sentence…. and maybe use it for posting snarky or non-news relatd comments about life or myself. :)

But that’s just about it for me for now. As soon as I get home I’ll tackle these edits and hopefully it’ll be done by the end of the day. Furthermore, I may even update with ACTUAL useful tidbits, such as the print-run info for the last two Pokémon TCG sets which I’ve been putting off for several months… :(

Well, enjoy! :)

To Do List

If you’re seeing this, then you know that PA! is slowly being rebooted. I don’t want it to be like what it used to be–where it dominated every aspect of my life and it was my number one project. Instead, I want it to just be something I can update whenever I feel like with something that other sites don’t have–such as new fake cards, fun theories about the game, TCG-related data and other stuff.

But before I can do that, I need to get this site operational, which will happen whenever I damn well please. Some of the things I need to get to include:

  • Add a new extremetracking tracker to the site (the old one which is still going isn’t their most up-to-date version, so I may retire it in favor of a new one)
  • Add a Flag Counter:
  • Update the design for the WordPress post thingy to look more like my classic PA! post layout; complete with title, text body, and some snarky comment
  • Add whatever new information to my site which showcases the kind of information I want to regularly update, leaving the stuff I DON’T want to touch on my old site archives.
  • Try to remove that annoying blue bar between the title bar and the main content.

Again, this will happen whenever I feel like it, in between graduating college, getting a new job with my new degree and kicking my comicmaking career back into high gear after about three to four years of nothing while I worked on trying to graduate.

See you soon!
