02/18/09: Birthday and stuff

It was my nineteenth birthday today, and I had fun. Loyal as I am to this website, that didn't stop me from finishing the updates I'd been making. I've been in this crazy content-writing mood, which I'm very glad for since I've been noticing an annoying lack of it recently.

So basically, I made Sections that Suck (more coming later). I know it was second on the poll, but the design changes are going to take a lot of time to finish, and I was in a really great ranty sort of mood. If you have any of the kinds of sections mentioned, please don't take it personally; it's just my opinion.

And, well, in the interest of trying to be as little of a hypocrite as I could, I went and tweaked and edited a whole lot of stuff in the spriting guide, especially the scratch sprite part, and made a new in-depth guide as mentioned in my previous update, on shading. (It's less mathematical than the outlining guide, I promise.) Then, when I made more of Sections that Suck, I went and looked at a couple of my AAP sections, decided that the AAP FAQ was rather painful so that I removed it (and instead stuck the really relevant parts on top of AAP: The Cause, which was also edited), and then rewrote the entire animal cruelty article from scratch (it still says a lot of the same stuff, but I just really hated the writing in the old one). And I took down Stop the Flaming, because as Sections that Suck points out, it became really obsolete about five years ago and I need to stop inspiring people to copy it.

You're a great ranter, but I find those HTML guides helpful. I see your point about them, though.

Happy late Birthday! I like the Sections that Suck, gives me an idea of what not to include on my new website (not that I'd do something like the HTML guide, I'm planning to include one, but when I'm better at it, right now I'm not that good)

Happy birthday :3 Hope you still feel young.



I do like the section about Sections that Suck. Although admittedly I never really had that problem since only really visit here, Serebii, and Veekun.

I love the added section to the spriting guide, and the redone Scratching section in it.
