CURRENT GROUP NEWS December 6, 2013: Group Opening is now OVER!
Greetings, everyone! I'm Isabelle the Growlithe of the Town Hall. I'm here to provide everyone with the most current news that the group has to offer! I look forward to bringing you the scoop whenever I am able to! Here's the most recent information I can share with you...
EDIT #2: %PKMN-Crossing is now CLOSED to join requests! Thank you to everyone who has decided to apply. Waiting in our inbox are 68 join requests for the moderation team to review. We doubt that this process will take very long to sort due to the low income of applications, so we ask for a bit more of your patience. We shall get to work right away on our judging process before accepting members and placing their info into the group documents. Expect this process to take a day or two. Thank you so much for everyone's patience and interest! We look forward to updating everyone on the end results soon!
EDIT #1: %PKMN-Crossing is now OPEN to join requests from now through December 6th @ 2:00 PM (EST)! The password prompt and passwords have been set into place throughout 3 of our key group journals. Good luck to everyone applying!
The time is near... It is less than 24 hours until %PKMN-Crossing hosts its public joining session! This means that we will be open to join requests to give users a chance at group membership! We have noticed a grand influx of those interested in trying out over the past few weeks, so we wish you the best of luck! Have you made sure to complete your character application and read our important journals? For those planning to try to re-join with a old character: does your character meet our up-to-date group standards? It's always great to double-check if you're ready before you rock 'n' roll! For current members: if you are planning to switch to a new character (possibly of the Gen. 6 species?), be sure your new application is set up before you send in a group note asking for a character switch!
From December 2nd @ 2:00 PM (EST) through the 6th @ 2:00 PM (EST), the group will be open to join requests. We do have a rather particular way of how we handle join sessions, so please make sure you read our How to Join the Group journal! Many of you are probably wondering where the password prompt and passwords are at this time. We do not place the passwords and its prompt (the hint as to what the theme of the passwords are) until a much closer hour to join requests opening. Please do not repeatedly ask about where they are! They will appear in due time. Be patient, Young Grasshoppa... Patience is key to many things in life -- including public group openings on the internet.
We would also appreciate if you familiarize yourself with our other various Group Journals. We are very busy preparing for the flood of join requests that we'll be receiving in the next few days and making last minute adjustments in the admin area to handle the load, so we do not have the time to answer any questions. That is why we have the handy dandy Frequently Asked Questions journal! It's chock full of our most commonly received questions, so we hope that it will be able to assist you since we are unable to for the time being.
There are many potential joinees posting their character applications on our group page for reviews and to show them off, which is great to see! Just please, do not spam up the group front page! We see a few repeated users that have been doing this the past few days, and we do not appreciate it. Give others a chance to post as well. We hope that you are all willing to work together to make some last minute tweaks and critiques, because once you submit your join request, it means you should not be editing it any further. You should be content with what you have down for everything, especially once join requests closed and judging officially begins! Editing your application over and over all the way up to the final day is a little worrisome in our eyes, to be honest, because it shows us that you may be unhappy with your creation. If you're unhappy with your creation, it's safe to say you will not be too content with it in the group for very long.
We thank you for your interest in %PKMN-Crossing and have many winter events in store for new members when all of this is over! Hopefully you are all looking forward to them. We wish you the best of luck! See you on the other side!
That's all the news I have for now, it seems. Besides that, I am here for any sort of assistance if you need it. Thank you for reading, dear resident!
CURRENT EVENTS December 6 - 9: Secret Delibird Signups
Winter has come to Pokette Town, Toy Day is not too far around the corner, and everyone is scattering about to find the perfect gifts for their loved ones. But how about spreading some holiday cheer to someone you may not know? We're talking about the Secret Delibird gift exchange! What is Secret Delibird, you ask? A great question! We like your curiosity!
It is basically a Secret Santa-styled event. What we do is take everyone who has signed up and shuffle all of their names in a hat - or a certain randomizing website! - then have them create a little something special to put under the tree for whomever they managed to get paired up with! It's all quite fun, and who knows, you could make someone's Toy Day and New Year very special. What we're looking for are people and Pokémon with spare time to spread a little magic. If you're interested in participating in this magical event of artistic cheer, please follow this link to read about our information: [ SECRET DELIBIRD INFO ]
On a side note: Do not fret, future members! The judging process is almost complete for new applications! You will have plenty of time to participate in signups for this event as soon as we get you settled into the group very soon. Thank you, everyone! We hope many are looking forward to this!
BIRTHDAY(S) OF THE DAY December 7:
