02/04/15: More Favorite Pokémon Picker Fiddling

After looking through my referral logs and reading some of the discussions where the Favorite Pokémon Picker had been linked, I made a couple more edits to it addressing some recurring issues:

  • The short explanation text is now a bit clearer about the fact that the Pokémon you pick are not supposed to immediately appear under your "Found Favorites".
  • It also now explicitly notes that if you just keep on pressing "Pass", you won't actually get anywhere.
  • After one too many people claiming one of their favorite Pokémon just never appeared or didn't appear until way late, I added a feature allowing you to check exactly what happened to any Pokémon you specify. (Odds are you accidentally missed it and selected something else from the batch it was in, but on the off-chance you actually found some kind of bug, it'll detect that too.)
  • Because people were trying to share their favorites lists a lot and the only way they could do so was by taking screenshots and cropping them manually which is pretty inconvenient, I added a shareable favorites list link that will appear once you have some favorites. For the moment, if you want to share it as an image you'll still have to screenshot it yourself; I may later make a feature that automatically generates your favorites list as an image, too, but right now this will have to do.

Zelkova: Yeah, I tried to strike a balance between overwhelming people with too many Pokémon per batch and overwhelming people with the number of batches they have to get through to actually find any favorites, but I'm sure many people would prefer a different balance. I'll consider making it configurable.

I would love it if I could pick between smaller groups. Starting out with ~20 at once during the early phases in kinda overwhelming. I kinda want to force myself to pick only 1 out of 5 (or 6 for the sake of being Pokemon) during the early phases if possible and would love it if it was a builtin option to show smaller groups.

If it is too much tromble then don't worry about it. I'm a huge fan of it as it is, just kinda hard to stay focus when I have to decide between ~20 Pokemon for a good while without making a mistake.

Megan: More styles are kind of low-priority for me, since with the little time I have to work on the site, I'd generally rather be making content than yet another style. But maybe someday.

Hello Butterfree!

I have a question.
Have you thought about making a new theme for your styleswitcher? I'd love to see a new theme.
