    We are going to start a new series of profiles here on General Chat. The threads will be similar to the retired wells, where members of the authority will post a small description of themselves and their duties on PO and then you, the community, will have a chance to ask them questions. Each thread will run for a week and the program will last for thirteen weeks total. It will highlight members of the ownership, tier leaders, server admins, and side channel staff members. This will allow users to get to personally know the people behind all aspects of this wonderful website.

    We ask that you keep all questions pg-13 and follow all forum rules when asking questions. We also ask that all questions are on topic and related to the subject of the profile. Any question that does not will be deleted. The person doing the profile has the right to divulge as much or as little information as possible. The thread will last for a week and then the next profiler will start their thread.

    Currently the schedule will be as follows, but it is subject to change:

    8/20 - Hikari
    8/27 - Sinclair
    9/3 - sulcata
    9/10 - Weavile
    9/17 - Crystal Moogle
    9/24 - meeps
    10/1 - Fuzzysqurl
    10/8 - Strudels
    10/15 - Proof
    10/29 - Cirno
    11/5 - Samphire
    11/12 - Afro Smash

    Where the hell is SongSing????

    In reply to @Hannah , IFM said on another thread
    If we consider today to be the expiring date - 20th August 2014 -, that would mean that only the first 10 wells (10th being Lamperi's) could be repeated in this new format, which would include, from the people listed in the OP, only one person: Crystal Moogle (#2).
    Change that expiring date to 2 years and you would include Weavile (#16), Hikari (#19), Professor Oak (#25), Cirno (#30), and whoever else you felt like until Steeledges' well (#35).
    As far as i can see only Samphire and meeps are mentioned in the list and have relatively new wells.

    So, in my opinion, it's not about people already having repeated wells, but rather encharging some people to make a judgement on whether a determined person has evolved as a user and contributed enough between the making of his/her well and the present time, to make the new Profile not seem redundant. Going by this, probably all of the listed people would deserve a Profile.

    It is only for members of authority that play an integral aspect in how the site functions. This would include owners, admins, tier leaders, and people in charge of side channels. Also this list is pretty much locked in stone at this point, but if you rise high enough in the ranks before the next session of profiles there is a chance you could be featured.

    People who were offered it could refuse. Diamond possibly did that. It's also possible IFM just forgot him :D

    Thank you so much to everyone that participate in the inaugural run of PO Profiles. It was wonderful to hear about the people that make PO click and delve more into the inner decision making of Pokemon Online. We will be taking a break from Profiles for a few months to give the community time to refresh and allow our users to accomplish many more amazing things. Expect the announcement of the next round of Profiles in around 4 months, so go out their and achieve something great for PO so you can be featured!!!

    I will be leaving this thread open in the meantime, so if you have any comments or concerns about how this round of profiles was ran, leave it here and I will look at it before the next set of them goes up.

    I do know that PO Profiles ended up being a complete shitstorm but it was interesting to know a lot more about the admins without having to be a person that was right into the community from the start.(Am I infamous enough to get a PO Profile??? Pwetty Pweese???)

    If you have to ask for a profile, chances are you're not important enough to get one any time soon.

    Someone else asking where you are might be different though.

    Oh hush and go look for your empathy pants, you jaded old fart. Don't let this negative nelly get you down folks; you can always give yourself a profile if one isn't offered to you. All you have to do is believe in yourself(and send a shoutout Raducan's way so he doesn't lock it)!

    Well, I'm 14.3% of the way to 1K posts and I've only been on the forums since October 2014 so I'm doing ok (Totally did not use a calculator, I iz smrt)

    Also, interestingly, 27.972027972027972027972027........% of my posts have been liked. So over quarter of my messages are good, while Pokemonnerd only has 5.1789473684210526315% of his posts liked (NO CALCULATOR!!).
