11/02/17: Fifteen Years

Now you're fifteen years old,
while I'm sick with a cold.
Happy birthday, dear website!
Here's to more years untold.

The Cave of Dragonflies is fifteen years old today. Man, a decade and a half. I don't know where I'd be today if I hadn't decided to make a Pokémon website when I was twelve, but it'd probably be a lot more boring.

The site gets two whole birthday presents this year: first, I've made a new style, which you may be looking at right now if you haven't set a style cookie. It's a modernized remake of the old Voice of the Forest style, gratuitous lens flare and all, and you can switch your style cookie to it here. Essentially, I always felt Voice of the Forest had a nice color scheme and was one of the more visually interesting styles, but it was getting really dated with the fixed 800px width, and it was about time I made some more real responsive styles that weren't just joke banner changes. So here's one, and hopefully I'll get around to making more sometime before the sun swallows the earth. (If you preferred the old Voice of the Forest style, it still works, and you can switch your cookie to it on the style switcher page.)

Additionally, I've held my nose and created a Facebook page for the site. Like with the Twitter account, I aim to announce site updates on it, and if Facebook is your thing, you can contact me there, or you can like or share it or whatever. Raise awareness of cool old game mechanics, or something. I don't know, I am a crotchety old woman and back in my day people shared things by copy-pasting them into instant messengers.

Happy belated birthday to my number one favorite Pokémon site! :D I hope this site stays around for many, many, many years to come. It's so amazing to me that this site, an important part of my childhood, is still up and running (while sadly most of the other Pokémon sites I visited back then are long gone now). I first visited this site around 13 years ago and I've adored it ever since. I love the new Celebi style too!

I've been thinking about Celebi and its movie a lot. Dead Celebi was lit. There should be a Celebi dead form that is Grass/Ghost and looks like the dead celebi in the movie. tat wuld b a lit.

I think I might be late, but happy birthday TCoD! Fifteen years sounds pretty impressive, although I don't know how old websites usually get. Also, I'm glad that you remade the Celebi style because the old one never worked properly for me, which was sad since it's my favorite style.

Congratulations! It's must feel amazing to have this life-long project to interact with. You should feel proud! Even more so that it's part of many peoples' childhoods to some degree, not just yours.

(And c'mon, crotchety old woman or no, tell me you're not the slightest bit excited to casually stalk the profiles of the people who like your website!)

Happy birthday, TCoD! Fifteen years, man. That's kind of terrifying! D: But it's been a blast to see you and the site grow and change over most of those years, and the site's tools and content are always much appreciated. To another good year and many more!
