Hi and Howdy Nuzforums! And welcome to issue number three of the Nuzlocke Forums Newsletter! I’m your host, Bug, and I would like to be all your collective Valentine. Oh, yeah, happy Valentine’s Day! Let’s get into it.
We'll be opening moderator applications later this month! No previous experience is needed: as long as you're a team player with good conflict resolution skills, we encourage you to apply. We have no other changes to report, but keep an eye out for further details.
As per the suggestions thread, we're going to archive the imported runs into Ruins of Alph later today. They should still be visible to guests and, as always, if you'd like one of your old runs reauthored or moved into the main section of FCR, please do not hesitate to message a member of the staff.MouseWithADinosaurTail said:Hi. Here's my suggestion. Could the Tapatalk archive go inside Old Chateau instead of being on the front page? I'm 99% sure this is just a me problem but it drives my ADD absolutely bonkers that there are two FCRs on the front page. Idk if that's something you could actually do but it would help Mouse's quality of life. Please consider.
An extension for this exists, but while we understand that there are a number of reasons for people to track this, as a team we've agreed that we'd like to afford readers some measure of privacy.TheTRUEgge said:Is it possible to add something so that thread creators are able to see who’s watching their threads? Or at least how many people are doing so
Though there are some teething issues with the app, it makes coordinating trades much quicker, even on the free plan. As a result, we will be opening a channel in the main Discord for the purpose of trading, and potentially holding monthly group trading events.
- The Screenshot and Written Log Discord has been dropped from our list of official discord servers. The server will still be around, but it is no longer officially affiliated or run by the forums.
- In lighter news, we’ve listed the main Discord Server on Disboard listings. You may or may not see some traffic from users who haven’t joined the site yet. Be sure to welcome them in!
This comes with an exciting silver lining, however! We get to start new! So we’re hosting a design event starting soon to pick a new forum banner! Keep your eyes on announcementos for more news on how you can participate in this event, and get your creation on the header.
Haven’t had a chance to check out all the runs that moved on to voting? You can check out the voting thread here for the full list.
We hope you’ve enjoyed the Extravaganza this year. We’ve been taking into account user suggestions on how to make this event the best it possibly can be! Once the results are out, we will be releasing a Yearly Reflection Thread in short order to congratulate our participants, and get your feedback for next year! Mainly we’ll be focusing on picking categories for next year, asking your opinions on some changes we feel we need to make for next year, and generally holding a friendly open discussion about the event. We want to thank you all for making this event better every time. Happy Nuz Year!
As always, if there's a pokemon whose performance you'd like to see analyzed by our expert Nuzlockers, you can submit them here.
Interested? Check out the thread here and how to get whitelisted!
Jezz and Linky are hosting a randomized Firered race for the Pokelink Monthly stream. Stop by starting on the 22nd of February at 6pm GMT to say hi from the Nuzlocke forums to our fellow nuzlockers!
Temtem, the Pokemon-esque MMO, released on early access last month! Early impressions suggest it's pretty good; if you're the type who sees nuzlocking and MMOs as two great tastes that would be even better together, it could definitely be worth your while!
Screenshot runs and Storylockes are pretty heavily concentrated onto our own forums. But, as Nuzlockes continue to spread even now, people can and will write fan fiction. I found this little nugget on Double Jump, and thought maybe you’d find as much interest with it as I do. Check out High Hopes by Kris P, and maybe pop by to give a kind comic and a hello from us!
“Hop, this was a terrible idea.”
“Pretty sure this was your idea, mate.”
“Was not.” I huffed, squinting my eyes as if that would help me see better in the thickening fog. “You would have gone straight into the Slumbering Weald after the Wooloo no matter what I said, and you know it.”
“Come off it,” Hop’s voice said from somewhere in front of me on the overgrown path, his outline just barely visible. “There was no hesitation from you when I asked what we should do when we saw the broken fence.”
I glared in Hop’s general direction. The Slumbering Weald had always been off limits for us. I thought it was just due to the wild Pokemon in the area, but if it was always foggy like this… Well, point taken, Mum.
And now for something totally different.
That's all we've got for you this month! Thank you all for reading - we hope you're enjoying the Extravaganza, and we'll see you next month with more news.
