Looks like problems continued to plague Chicago PokeGo Fest, so if you're one of our Chicago players who attended, here's something for you.

For the rest of us, there's an event to celebrate the addition of legendary pokemon to the game (as Raid Bosses) for the next 48 hours!
  • double stardust

  • double candy

  • double XP (use those lucky eggs for quadruple XP!)

  • reduced hatching distance (looks like this only applies to new eggs put into incubators; an egg I already had in an incubator didn't update the distance)

  • reduced buddy distance

  • increased encounters

(Full details)

Get out there & walk!

All Prompts + Beta Post

All the requests in text-searchable form! If you want the .csv file of all requests to create a spreadsheet for the exchange of all requests, let me know!

Here is our achievement list. Let's see how many we can knock off!

Now, betas!

One of the more invaluable services in any exchange is a beta! While it is not necessary to have one in order to participate, betas can help by casting an eye over your work and giving opinions, making suggestions, or cheering you on in the dark hours of "oh God this is due in two hours and I have scrapped everything I did before".

If you are able to beta, please comment below with:

PokeGo Fest is running into some problems.

I know some of our members are from Chicago. Hopefully, you weren't one of these people! :/

(I feel like these were predictable issues? Oh Niantic.)

Friday's comic!

I was wondering when he would show up!

Yes, we seem to be very near the end of the volume.

Incoming Legendary raids confirmed!

Official announcement here: http://pokemongolive.com/en/post/legendarypokemon

Probably coming worldwide shortly after the Chicago GO fest, as I imagine them unlocking it is pretty much a foregone conclusion. Though it seems like Legendaries will be releasing gradually into the raid pool. I'l also heard scuttlebutt that Legendary raid eggs will have an extra-long lead time, to make it easier to coordinate a large group, though I'm not sure where that info comes from.

Someone over on the Silph reddit also did a pretty nice write-up on which pokemon that you can raise now will be most useful for Gen 1-2 Legendary raids: https://www.reddit.com/r/TheSilphRoad/comments/6ogm5u/last_minute_preparation_for_legendary_raids/



For me, right now I've got one Bite/Crunch Tyranitar and one Rock Throw/Rock Blast Golem, plus the usual complement of Eeveelutions and one each excellent Scizor w/Bug, Houndoom w/Dark and Dragonite w/Dragon, so that's a start at least. Sadly neither of my Omastars have the useful legacy rock moveset, oh well.

I think my bookshelves mostly convey the message "you need more shelves" and "apparently will read anything that stays still long enough."

Context
is "is this a case for - the ponceyness police?"




full_metal_ox: (Default)
[personal profile] owlbrigade1 cites this case in point:

Gotham police are at a loss to explain a sudden rise in animal themed costumed weirdos? Surely the explanation is the same as it is for the long standing animal themed weirdos? It is Gotham, it is what they do. People in animal costumes wreaking havoc is practically a city tradition.

Context, to no one's surprise, involves Harley Quinn.

New update rolling out

Good morning trainers!

A new update for PokeGo is rolling out to the app stores. Check out the list of changes.
press_start_mod: (Default)
Signups are now closed and matching has been finalized. Congratulations everyone, because we almost doubled the number of participants this year from last year and no one needed to be contacted to add offers! A spreadsheet is in the process of being created, and it will be posted along with a beta post in the next few days.

If there are any issues with your assignment, please contact me at press.start.mod@gmail so that I can get onto them right away. If you would like to ask further details of your recipient, please also email me so that I can get the ball rolling on that. Please do not contact your recipient directly! This is my job and I am delighted to do it.

We also have some initial pinch hits. These are people who, after matching was complete, were unable to be matched either because no one offered what they were requesting or because by the time matching got around to them every possibility had already been assigned. Please look at the pinch hits carefully and see if you can create a work for one of these participants.

If you are interested in claiming a pinch hit, please comment below with your AO3 name and which pinch hit you are after. All comments are screened!

EDIT: We have a new pinch hit, number 6. Please look over it and see if you can claim it!

Pinch Hit #1: Postknight, Pokemon, The Sims, Mystic Messenger, Harvest Moon: Animal Parade, HuniePop - CLAIMED )

Pinch Hit #2: Akiba's Beat, Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, Atelier of Dusk Trilogy, Crossover Fandoms, Final Fantasy XIII series, Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, Star Stealing Prince, Tokyo Xanadu, Ys - CLAIMED )

Pinch Hit #3: Magna Carta: Tears of Blood, Skies of Arcadia, Tales of Vesperia, Tales of Xillia - CLAIMED )

Pinch Hit #4: Dishonored, Fallout 4, Metal Gear, SOMA - CLAIMED )

Pinch Hit #5: Tales of Xillia, Star Ocean 2, Legend of Heroes: Sora no Kiseki, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Undertale, Ace Attorney, Okami, Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword, NieR: Automata, Ys - CLAIMED )

 The signup deadline approaches! A couple of things before signups close.

Requesting/Offering "Any Character"
If you are offering or requesting "Any Character", please check the tag set to make sure that you want a gift about any character/relationship in that tag set, or that you want to create a work for any character/relationship in that tag set. If there is any exception to you genuinely being fine with requesting or offering every tag in that fandom, now is a really good time to modify your signup to reflect that.  Also, please ensure that the characters/relationships you have prompted for are in the tag set.

Here is the tag set to make checking easier!

Optional Details in Offers

As already covered over here, the Optional Details field in Offers was left on by accident and I won't be using it for matching. Feel free to write stuff in there, but it will have no impact on what you are assigned to create (except under extraordinary circumstances).

Initially Unmatchables and Additional Offers

When signups close, I will be running matching. If no one is able to create for you you will be an initial pinch hit. If you are not able to create for anyone, you will be contacted and asked to provide additional fandoms or tags for matching purposes. You will have 24 hours to respond. Requests are visible, so as the signup deadline draws near just check to make sure you have some possibilities.

Contact with Participants

Please do not contact your fellow participants directly about their requests while the exchange is running. I will be the conduit for all contact of that nature.

Penalty Works
If you were defaulted by me at deadline either in 2015 or 2016 you are not eligible to participate this year until you complete your assignment from that year, and contact me with it. If you are not sure if you are one of these people, email me at press.start.mod@gmail and I'll let you know.

I think that covers everything! If there's anything else, drop it in the comments.

Monday's comic!

Hannover wurst appears to be what happens is when you have the question of whether to have sausage or bacon with your breakfast, and you make the obvious-in-retrospect choice of "Both! At the same time!" and make sausage in part out of bacon.

Context, needless to say, is delicious.

 I was hoping just yesterday that the Foglios would update The Works card game and lo! They are! They've posted some sketches at their Facebook page!
