I actually just removed that feature because I wasn't sure anyone was even using it and it seemed like more trouble than it was worth to reimplement it (either do a similar hack as I was doing before, where updating the Quest Blog modifies a file that the main site reads; connect to a whole extra database on every pageview just to fetch this one piece of text that will only actually appear if the user hovers over a particular link; or make up some new, different implementation from scratch). If you actually were using it, I may have to reconsider. :P
Hover-over for the Quest blog doesn't seem to be working. I use Firefox if that matters

the april fools 2012 page (in icelandic) isn't working
Yes I enjoyed the game mechanics section a lot, I also enjoyed browsing through the forums quite a bit. Thank you.
I've been running this site since November 2nd 2002 - so, closing in on fourteen years now.
I'm not sure what you mean by "making the most" out of this website; it's mostly static content rather than any kind of service you could be making the most of. Are you just wondering what some of the best content on here is? If you're interested in the video games and how they work, I'd definitely recommend taking a look at some of the game mechanics sections, particularly the R/B/Y ones (so, the Gen I Capture Mechanics, R/B/Y Safari Zone, and the R/B/Y Stat Modification section. It's less well-known stuff than your typical Pokémon site game mechanics and I at least think it's some of the coolest stuff I've ever done (I personally analyzed some of the assembly code used by the games to get this information).
If game mechanics aren't your thing, well, what is? There's a lot of stuff on here; you could just browse around and see what pages there are.
Hey, i remember visiting this site a few years back and enjoying it, and i am glad to have found it again. Back then i only liked the sprites and such(especially the ones you created yourself) and i have a two questions. 1. How long has this site been running for? and this question might seem a little weird but how can i make the most out of this website? - Thank you
Because it only goes up to B/W at the moment, and Keldeo's Resolute Forme wasn't introduced until B2/W2.
Sunshine, daisies, butter mellow
Why isn't Resolute Form Keldeo in the Sprite Generator?
There's no windzle on the list that was on the old server either. I did go through the list at one point several months ago, but that was just removing obvious spam; I guess I could have accidentally deleted you by mistake, but it's odd.
You can always enter yourself again, in any case.
I'm think it was in February or something, and I got a congratulations message when I did the error report thing, if that's what you mean. I remember seeing my name there before, though.
When did you enter it, and did it give you a congratulations message when you'd finished?
I went to the Rulers of the Universe and used the Find thing to try to find myself but I don't seem to be there? I'm pretty sure I spelled it correctly.
Whoops, sorry about that! I've fixed the issue - try again. (If you don't remember the phrase, e-mail me or send an actual error report with the basic gist of it or some late parts of the marquee and I'll add you manually.)
So i finished the Marquee, and tried doing the error thing. It just gave me a Internal Server Error. Help please!
The last modified date is actually just the last modified date of the page template - so, since the poll results page template hasn't changed since February, it'll say that for every poll. Might be a smidge confusing for dynamic pages like the poll results, but that's what's going on there.
The poll results page says "Page last modified February 5 2016 at 20:02 GMT". Is that an error?
@Butterfree That would be absolutely amazing. :D I really hope you do that,
Ah, I gotcha. I guess since I never felt inclined to look for different version sprites, I never noticed that functionality before yesterday.
You done need to fix the forum sprites too, though.
Unfortunately practical concerns have to, and should, take precedence over nostalgia! The old pages used to have the old layout because they'd been left untouched when I originally made the new layout, but for this port, I had to recreate the entire site - the server the site is running on now literally can't run the code that the old pages used to run on. There was no way to simply keep the old pages as they were.
If it'd make you happy, though, I could specially recreate the old layout as an easter egg kind of thing, which'd make it possible to view any page in the old layout (and thus any of the old styles) if you so chose. :P
(When I say if it'd make you happy, I mean I'd actually kind of enjoy doing that anyway, because I get a kick out of doing stuff like that - see the existence of Oldie style.)
