Hi so I did a 1K post ~200 posts ago and this might be very similar to that so bear with me. About Me I'm an American teenage guy. I enjoy watching/playing tennis, music, and sleeping. I recently got a job at a child development center inside of a Navy Base so that's exciting. I also got my wisdom teeth out a couple of days ago (such a struggle, I know) so I'm going through a rough patch in my life, thank you for your prayers. ;) Pokémon I started playing Pokémon from as early as I could remember. My first game was Gold, which was literally the best thing ever. I then played Emerald, Diamond, SoulSilver, and Black as they came out. I quit playing the actual games a while ago because they simply do not interest me anymore. Pokémon Online I first came on PO around 2012 after watching some YouTube videos of competitive battling. I thought it looked fun so I decided to give it a go myself. I used to grab teams from the RMT forums (and make garbage ones of my own) for laddering in OU and Ubers. Back then I had thought that if you got above 1200 on the ladder that you were good or something. Anyway, for about a year, I came on PO very sporadically (just whenever I was bored and I was reminded of it). During the summer of 2013, I started being a lot more active on PO, getting involved with #Tournaments and #Trivia. I ended up signing up for POCL midseason pickups and caught the attention of @Finchinator, who was 26 and had an important job at that time. I didn't end up getting on his team for the tour, which was fine, considering they lost :D. I continued being more active on Tours and Trivia and ended up getting cstaff in each (along with BF Reviewer). During this time, I became really active on the forums and became a bunch of things (team rater, tutor, gym leader etc.). For some reason, whenever I rated someone's team, I would always recommend Choice Band Garchomp because apparently every team I rated needed "a solid wallbreaker." I ended up getting server mod on the first day of 2014 and that was pretty fun. Some time later, the Competitive Analyses project started up so I helped with that for a bit. Around March/April, BR quit PO (with the exception of hosting POWC), so they needed another TD to fill his spot and I got it. Shortly after that, we switched our forums from vBulletin to Xenforo so that was fun. This is also when that whole BR/Key drama happened. This was also when Cased was unbanned after he got banned for being an idiot (not surprising at all). Later that year, I co-hosted the POCL with BR and that went pretty great. I also got the position of Side Metagames leader. I then got promoted to server admin along with 3 others and shortly later (after BR quit again), @Weavile got owner. I then ended up hosting OGT and POWC at the start of 2015 and that was terrible. I also got promoted to Super Mod on the forums some time during those tours. This was nice because I now get to directly input my opinion on nearly every staff matter with the owners. I recently proposed that we establish a forum tours leaderboard so I think that'll be good once it gets started. As of now, I am working on reviving the Academy so hopefully that works. This isn't really a project I'd like to keep leading so the goal is to get it started and hopefully give it to someone else to lead. I'm looking forward to POCL this year because I actually get to participate :D I hope you enjoyed that, feel free to ask me questions about anything.
