Here, you can read all the updates on this site since October 25th 2003 and some of the ones from September and August 2003 - the site has been around since November 2nd 2002, but unfortunately most of the updates from the first year were never archived. Be advised that some links might take you to outdated sections or something else that has been taken off the site - I do not necessarily endorse the content of any such sections.
I fixed my site a bit so it's compatible with Mozilla Firebird, and there are many little tweaks. I also changed the What you shouldn't copy off my site. I'm working on sorting up the sprite gallery, don't worry...
Aaaaand... the Ultra-Mega-Revised version of The Quest for the Legends is up! Even if you've read the older versions, you should still read the Ultra-Mega-revised one.
There's a section with the sprite system I use on my forums... there's a new color scheme you can use (snow style)... I revamped my old "Training techniques" section and changed its name to "Fancy a challenge?" because that's what it really is about, how you can make a challenge out of your game. Thank you and merry Christmas. Or Season's greetings if you prefer that.
I also made an "Art thieves, click here!". Click if you dare.
And chapter four of The Type Chart.
Biiiiiig update. I actually went and took the advice I gave myself in the Site rater. So there's a new minipage called Deja Vu. Why? Because it's about Fire red and Leaf green, which are remakes of the original Red and Green, so it's sorta Deja Vu-ish... meh, who cares about the name. It has a lot of FR/LG stuff... anyway, then there's YET ANOTHER type of awards, and extra 1, chapter 31 and chapter 32 of The Quest for the Legends are up along with that cutie blog from Mew's hangout I just couldn't resist so I put it there to announce how the story's going. Also a new Almighty random poll, this time actually not random. Sue me, as long as you vote first, as it's important.
Also, is it just me, or am I suddenly getting hits real fast? o.O I'm positive that it's only been a few days since it was 80,000... anyway, I put up chapter three of The Type Chart. Then I just went and made custom colors you can choose on the splash page.
Well, as usually, a large-ish update after a long wait. Well... first off, I changed some of the affiliates' link buttons and fixed the link to PokéPC in the links. Unfortunately, chapter 31 of The Quest for the Legends is not complete yet, but as good news for my readers, you can read The Type Chart while you wait, it's my new fanfic (don't worry, TQFTL is far from abandoned) which is a Pokémon/The Matrix crossover. I made a site rating service, read for details, and in my last update I forgot to mention the FAQ. As you may have noticed, I updated the splash, and as usual, there's a new almighty random poll.
OK... I joined the Suta-raito topsites, made a special section with why Pokémon isn't animal cruelty in detailed logic, a debating guide, fixed a few things around the site and want to thank everyone who sent error reports. Then Sarah the Swinub sent a fanfic. Also, two new counters in the Anti-anti-Pokémon for Pokémon haters section and I added to the counter to the Houndoom thing. And a section called "The Jackhammer of Logic" which contains anti-Pokémon reason pages I've smashed up. Then, I got ANOTHER guestbook, which has not only banning but also CENSORING!!!! Mwahahahahaha!!!!!!
I also changed the almighty random poll, and made an almighty random poll archieve where you can vote in those you missed and view the results.
I'm not dead. Really. Come on, if I was, how would I be typing this? Being a ghost, and therefore insubstantial, would give me certain typing difficulties. Besides, how does it matter whether I'm dead or not since I can at least update? Anyway, as you can see, I made the font of the updates smaller because they were taking way too much space now that the updates are so big... AND I put them in a div so now they can scroll down, and put them in another font because they just looked better that way, somehow... Anyway, loads of updates. Don't remember what I've updated, actually. Just that there's a new quiz called the Type quiz... it was harder to make than you think. A lot harder. Mainly because I got myself to believe that I wouldn't need to code it, just do it the old way by writing HTML and copying-and-pasting, since the type quiz is about clicking links that take you to the next question. The thing is that when I changed the look of the result pages, which I did about three or four times, I had to go through twenty result pages to change them all... @_@ This update's lesson: NEVER write something you may want to change without using code. Anyway, there's some bunch of stuff... oh, the Anti-anti-anti-anti-Pokémon section. If you're having a hard time counting the antis, it means "Against those who are against Anti-anti-Pokémon". It's not long, just a small statement, and as usual, completely flame-free. I've got loads of ideas of new sections, too. Oh, and there's a new poll at the bottom. As happy news for my readers, the problem with chapter 31 of The Quest for the Legends has been solved and as soon as I get around to writing the whole of it, it will be up. And I put the guestbook below the updates, it was the only way I saw out of a certain problem. Then I just thought "what the heck" and decided to layout the whole site with DIV tags and include the affiliates on every page. That took a LONG time. A few hours yesterday evening and an hour and a half today. Just hope all that was worth it... -_-;;;;;
Do you know what day it is today? It's this site's birthday! Yep, on this day exactly one year ago, a small website called Butterfree's Pokémon site was moved from My Documents to the Butterfree drive which was shared to the internet (meaning, for short, that everything on it was accessible online). And in honour of the site's birthday, I made a POKÉDEX! A Pokédex for Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby AND Sapphire, based on a database. Well, I had some adventures with that, I made the whole database, and then managed, with the amazing help of Microsoft Access' stupidity, to delete everything for Pokémon 252-386. I spent the rest of that day making it again. Well, sadly, due to a lack of time (it's very short since I discovered when the site actually went on the net), version 1 doesn't have attacks or locations, but it has stats, Pokédex numbers, abilities, breeding groups and whether they're obtainable in Ruby and Sapphire or not. Attacks and locations will come, in worst case at my birthday (February the 18th) because that's a day I feel like planning something big for, just like today (Lesson learned from this: Always set yourself a time limit for everything you're going to do if you want to do it). Anyway, there's a lot of updated stuff, I fixed a lot of small errors around the site, and chapter 30 of The Quest for the Legends is up. Also a nice new conspiracy theory that's "sent in" by Dannichu, but written and tweaked around by me, fan-sent fake codes and BabelFisions... a section in Anti-anti-Pokémon about the morals of Pokémon... ahh, whatever, just check everything out!
Unfortunately, this update was delayed to the third because there wasn't time to upload the whole thing. Oh well, just in time before 70,000 hits! :)
... Unfortunately this update was delayed even further, to the fourth, because a computer at Dad's work that has some role in updating (although I don't know what that role is) decided to get stupid. Grrr... but I added an error report section because I had nothing else to do. And the STOP THE FLAMING page. Please read it and think about it.
I'm really sorry, I had this update ready three days ago, but I never uploaded it... anyway, I wish I didn't have to repeat this, but... NO SWEARING IN THE GUESTBOOK. If you do that, I may lose my temper start yelling at you in red, bold, underlined, italicized, size 72 font and all caps. An example of that can be found a few pages back in the guestbook. And if that still doesn't do it, then the guestbook will be deleted. You already know that when I say I will, I'm serious, so you better keep out of the line if you want a guestbook at all. Anyway, Latios sent a new fanfic, and the BabelFished section has been so popular I've already gotten some fan-sent stuff in it. Also one by me... then I wrote some new counters in the Anti-anti-Pokémon section and tweaked it around a bit more. Enjoy. And I also got my first fan-sent fake code! And I put a little poll beside the Pikachu that's below the updates. Please vote!
I made a hilarious new section called BabelFished. Just go there and see what it is. Also, I've been updating the page with Thunderyu, Volcaryu and Polaryu, my legendary dragon trio, a lot lately. I don't think there is anything else, but there might be. Also say hello to my new affiliate, Vaporeon Dreams!
I made a new guestbook, but I warn you: It has much more features than the old one, including an IP ban, and I don't want any roleplaying, cussing, flaming, threatening, spamming, etc. in it, just visitor comments and normal chat. If people don't keep out of the line, I'll delete this guestbook too. Consider yourself warned. Anyway, I did some adjustments in the Anti-anti-pokémon for pokémon haters section so that you don't need to scroll down the whole page to see what's new... also a new section that's constantly being updated: Evolution animations. It has animated GIFs of evolving pokémon (sometimes doing something else too, like using an attack). Also, I fixed the sprite gallery, you may have noticed that the buttons haven't been working lately. Oh, and a change in the layout of the hangman, plus fixing it so that you get your first word right away instead of having to press a button to do it (and at the same time getting rid of the error you got when you guessed a letter before you got a word).
Well, there's not much new. Just chapter 29 of The Quest for the Legends. And a tiny note in the anti-anti-pokémon for pokémon haters section. Wow, compare the length of this update to the one below...
(The updates below this point are collected from archived versions of the site; there may have been more updates in this gap here, but they have been lost.)
Surprise! I'm not dead after all! Anyway, BIIIIIIG update. The whole site's been turned to ASPX, and there's a load of new sections and updated ones. Well, in case you never noticed, I made a "DO NOT CLICK HERE!!!" shortly after my last update. Well, now it's almost 100% fool-proof and EVEN LONGER! Mwahahahahahaha... then I made a section with recommended sections, if you've never been here before, that's something you should check out to know what sections you should visit first. Then, there's a conspiracy theories page (it's under humour, folks, humour, think carefully about that before wanting to talk to me about it!) Latios sent in one fanfic, Mew13 sent in two (or was it three?), all of which are so insane you wouldn't believe it. There's some more anti-anti-pokémon, aaaand... the long-awaited chapter 28 of The Quest for the Legends is up. I also decided to answer the question I keep getting ("How do I recolor/splice sprites") once and for all in a sprite editing guide. I also made a "Link to me" section, not everyone bothered to check the links page for my button, and I tweaked the Links section around, too. And, there's a new Anti-anti-pokémon award. Um... what else? Just that, like you probably noticed, the splash page has been added to the menu and you can now choose your music. And now there's a marquee at the top of each page (except the front page and the pages without the menu, head and music) that shows the updated sections, just for convenience so you won't always need to go to the front page to see the updated pages, since I decided I should rather put the "new update" icons in Fanart, Fanfics and the like, so you can see WHAT the new stuff in the section is.
Let's see... Latios sent a joke and a fanfic... if you haven't noticed, I added a small thing to the Anti-anti-pokémon for pokémon haters section shortly after my last update... I deleted the team making section, it didn't help anyone like it was and I'm rubbish at the depths of team making... I updated the Webmaster tips... and I think that's all. Oh, I put up a section with ideas you shouldn't copy off my site.
More Anti-anti-pokémon for pokémon haters, a small update in the names with the incorrect spellings of the most commonly wrong pokémon names in brackets beside them, a new affiliate, and I have writer's block.
More anti-anti pokémon... this time I wrote a neat little counter to the classic "Why are you attacking us, we haven't done anything to you" argument. And it's even an original one, because it's not the typical "you hack our sites" you see everywhere so I thought I didn't need to mention it. Also, expect chapter 28 of The Quest for the Legends soon.
Next daily update... I made a section about how to become an affiliate, changed the update icons again, tweaked the menu around a bit, changed the music, and... 50000 HITS!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh, and our super-stupid internet service provider, lina.net, is going to expire our internet connection sometime in Septemper. Might be the first, might be some other day in September, or they might just forget it. Anyway, that means we are very likely to be without an internet connection for a few days, so if the site goes down in September, don't start nagging me about it. OK?
Whoever thought that school would slow me down in updating this site, that person was wrong. One of these people happens to be me... anyway, somehow, I've made pretty big updates all the three days that have passed since school started. Weird... this time I changed the whole site to SSI, meaning the menu is on every page except a few, and put the black background, white text, yellow links style everywhere. You bet that took some time...
Big update! I made new update icons, a new system for the awards (if you have gotten an award from me but not an e-mail with a new one, just e-mail me and I'll send you a new one), revamped the What I hate seeing on websites list and now you can submit more than just fanart and fanfics in the Submitting section. Also, a revision of the Basics section is now up.
Well, guess what. I got THREE fanfics since last update, which incidentally was two days ago. Two by Dannichu and one by Mew13. Just a warning: They're insane (like you couldn't guess...)
I updated the "What is pokémon?" section. In fact, I completely rewrote it from the scratch, so it's now on the edge of being considered a fanfic. Really, even if you know exactly what pokémon is, you should go and read it, at least I found it quite enjoyable ^_^ It contains, among other things, the history of pokémon training, a comparison of the pokémon world and our world with some humour stirred in and the striking similarities between pokémon and chess...
Latios sent two very good fanfics: Mean Mr. Mustard, the script for the seventh movie and The Box, which I can easily declare as some of the best pokémon fanfiction I've ever read. Strongly recommended. Also, Ricky sent chapter two of his story, Team Magma and Team Aqua: Groudon vs. Kyogre.
Update, finally! Well, chapter 21 of The Quest for the Legends is finally finished, and I revised chapters five and six... yuck! They were horrible! I didn't remember I was that bad... well, at least, they're a lot better now... and I made a new Scyther picture and put it up... aaaand... there's a new contest! A totally new theme contest! The old one is still here, but this is a theme contest about who can make the lousiest pokémon! Have a go! Oh, and join the forums!
Big update, since I wrote down everything I've always meant to put up but always forgotten in France. Well, first off, I made a Legendary dog/cat/beast/whatever you call them guide, about a bit more than just catching them... then, I wrote this thingy... I have no idea why, just read the author's notes for details... I also made an Espeon/Umbreon guide, which can also help you for other pokémon you need to evolve by happiness... some cheats for Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver and Crystal, along with a bit of truth for Gold, Silver and Crystal... and a neat little thing for the anti-anti-pokémon for pokéhaters section I thought up in France. And some contest entries. I'll be able to judge the gyms soon. Oh, and my inbox got stuffed with junk mail while I was in France, so it is very likely that I didn't get some e-mails or contest entries you sent. Just send it again.
I have my own forums now! Please join! Also, new fanart and the insane story craze is still going on. Just join the forums! Oh, and in case I won't update another time before then - we're leaving to France this Saturday for two weeks so I can't update in the meanwhile. I will need some moderators for the forums for that too - apply for the position if you think I find you worthy.
