The Actual News:
This post is just for gits and shiggles… but literally eight years ago I added a new eXTReMe tracker (something I’ve had since basically day one), and in those literal eight years, essentially 30 thousand people had visited this new version. Take a look!
OK, yeah, some rounding and fudging of numbers may be involved here… but 30k in 8 years is still a pretty neat coincidence!
…of course a lot of that was just me before I learned how to mask myself…
…and actually most of these hits came from when I initially restarted the site in 2012 and a bunch of people visited for the TCG Print Run and AR Code Generator, and so the other 7 years of this site was just random visitors visiting randomly…
…but whatever! Who am I to complain about my fans and other visitors? I would just like to thank you for visiting and hope you keep coming… and maybe we’ll reach 100,000k in no time!
Wow!! I’m amazed this site still exists! I used to come here everyday to look at the fake pokemon cards and templates. I think we even spoke on Aim years ago about your custom ice type template. I recently got into making proxy cards as a hobby and this was the first thing that crossed my mind after messing with Yu-Gi-Oh card templates. Glad to see this site is still up and running!
YAY! Welcome back!
Y’know, I vaguely recall something about our AIM chat… like, I know I’ve talked to a few of you guys about making other types, like Ice, Poison, and even Plastic!
You can still download them at the PA! archives I’ve kept online all this time: http://old.pokemonaaah.net/blanks/
But yeah, I’m glad you remembered the site, and I hope you keep swinging by, because I’ve got a lot of stuff planned for it. In fact, I’ve got a “Plan for 2020 and Beyond” post coming up, so keep an eye out for it!
Huzzah, good times.
Oh man the memories. The cards have changed so much but this will always be a gem from my childhood. I wish i still had some of my old fakes I made using your templates back in paint shop pro so many years ago before I learned about photoshop lol.
That’s awesome! you were the first to do it too! to see how far fakes have come I’d have to say you’re the father of the whole process.
Most definitely! Looking forward to it!
Oh yeah, the good memories is one reason why I kept all the different sites up all this time. That said I’m hoping to create some new memories by bringing PA! back like this.
And yeah, so much has changed since I stopped working on the site… there was nothing like Twitter or Discord or Esty or Patreon back in the day, but that desire for other people to support me has always been there. I used to get so many people wanting to buy my fakes or otherwise support me financially, but there simply was no way to facilitate that kind of relationship back then. There is today, however! And after seeing what people have been able to make off their work, it convinced me to get back in the game.
Now while I don’t want to make “the site who did it first!” be my main focus… well, it definitely isn’t a lie! If anything tho, I want to back up the line “the first!” with “the best!”
Anyways, I can’t wait to make some new memories woth PA!
