    The Big September Update


    evandixon

    We just got finished applying some back-end server updates. Nothing particularly interesting, but we have some other exciting announcements.

    Discord

    For years, we've used IRC as our primary instant messaging service. Now, we have a Discord guild where you can discuss anything.

    Advantages of Discord over IRC:

    • See message history without having to be connected
    • Cross platform - use it on desktop, mobile, or in a web browser
    • More formatting options, including the same reactions as what we have in the forums

    Guild link: https://discord.gg/pmATjZw

    IRC isn't going anywhere, and we still plan to use it for more technical discussions.

    Patreon

    Project Pokémon gets its funding from two sources: advertisements and administrators. Nobody likes advertisements, and things can get expensive when only a few people bankroll a dedicated server. Thanks to Patreon, hopefully we can fix that. Patreon is a place where users can help support us, helping give Project Pokémon a more stable future. People who donate will receive the following rewards:

    • No more advertisements
    • Gold username on the forums and Discord
    • Sneak-peeks of upcoming features

    The Image Gallery

    Speaking of sneak-peeks of upcoming features, one new feature that's been in the works for quite a while is now ready. Today, we introduce our Image-dex. Here, you can find a collection of Pokémon images from various games and generations.

    Art Competition

    We need a new banner and icon for things like Twitter, Facebook, and Patreon, so we're holding an art competition. The winner will be awarded a special username color on the forums and Discord, a forum badge, and credit wherever the image is used. Details are in the art competition thread:
