You have done it in practically every post you've made. In fact, you did it five times in that post alone. You also capitalized a word that didn't need to be. Do we need a refresher course in the use of capital letters? There's a handy little list for you right here.

_________________
"Irregardless" and "Over exaggerated" are NEVER CORRECT EVER because they are redundant
Regardless means "without regard", and adding "ir" on the front actually makes it a double negative; exaggerate means "to overstate" so you're literally saying "over overstate."
Example: I can not exaggerate the importance of this fact enough, regardless of how often people ignore it.

Woah, dude, chill. i know grammar is important for clear understanding, but I believe we all understand what she's saying, even an capitalized i(see what i(OMG I DID IT AGAIN) did there?). Kinda like how it's instead of Five Items or Less, it's supposed to be Fewer except no one cares because we all know what it's supposed to mean in an informal setting.

I carry the motion that we more the above conversation to another thread.

It was perfectly relevant here, seeing as the mistakes were made in this thread, and I (note the proper capitalization) will not tolerate ignorance in my game. Also... "she"? I'm pretty sure that's a dude, dude. So no need to white knight.

And who says no one cares about the mistakes that grocery stores make? I do...

Anyway, the reason I'm posting here is to discuss your Nuzlocke notion. One of the rules in a standard Nuzlocke is that you catch the first Pokemon you encounter on every route. Well... in IP, you get to pick it. If you'd like, I can randomize it for you - you don't have to attack a specific target, just send out an IP and I'll match it up with one of the available ones at random. Your choice if you want to do things that way.

Sure that will work. I think the battle I'm in will have to be the standard "very first wild pokemon battle" found in r/b/y, r/s/e, and d/p/pt where you don't have any pokeballs. Besides, it would suck if I only had one pokemon fighting the gym leader.

Also, sorry for any gender mix-ups. To be fair, I had no idea he was a he and just guessed.

Silver has been busy lately with having a new job! Yeah so I'm actually working like 40 hours a week lately... and when I'm at home it's Otakon prep. However, pretty soon I won't have to do that any more, because Otakon will be done! IPA will be coming back soon, sometime in early August. If August 15 hits and I haven't done anything, I give you permission to nag me until I want to wring all your little necks.

B-but that's against the rules, mister Silver-san-chan!

Good luck with whatever, regardless.

I'm aware that it's against the rules. And you know what I say?

SCREW THE RULES I'M A LAZY BUM and I'd probably forget about my promise if no one reminds me.

Well... more accurately, the threat of being nagged and not being able to ban you for it is a pretty good incentive to actually do something.

And that's mister Silver-chan-san-SAMA to you, punk!

Oh man Silver. You crack me up. One un-capitalized "I" is enough to raise your dander, and it's hilarious.
Anyway, what's the status on this as a whole?

So eventually, I started to lose faith... I thought you had been killed in that terrible, terrible war. Or maybe that you had forgotten about me. It's been so long, you probably found another girl over there... I never stopped loving you, but I didn't think you cared about me anymore, so welcoming you back just would have been too painful for me... I'm sorry. I'm glad you've come back home *sniff*

But it wasn't just one un-capitalized "i"... ALL of his posts were like that...

And anyway, it sorta died off because no one was really interested when I tried reviving it last summer, and right now I just don't have the time at all. So... indefinite hiatus, I guess.

I'm afraid I've got some bad news. And I just want you to know that we tried. We really did! We did everything we could for him, but he's showing no signs of coming out of this coma any time soon, so we're pulling the plug. I know; it's heart breaking, but really, can you bear to see him in this state any more? There's nothing left of him; he's just a shell of his former self. It's time to let him have his rest. He earned it.


So... yeah. I'm killing IPA, guys. Sorry about that. Buuut I am thinking about doing something else to kinda fill the void. Just... one that involves less counting and tallying and constant post editing.

It's too bad, but I can't say I'm surprised. I suppose it's best to make it official though. And the new battle mode could be fun.
