Meta-PokéBase Q&A
0 votes

I know PM is super ̶f̶o̶r̶g̶e̶t̶f̶u̶l̶ ̶ busy and name changes are every ~6 months but I keep missing the date and I know emails are no longer a thing so I was wondering if there's a method better than "Check PM's activity, add 6 months and pray". Sadly, I don't frequent the site enough anymore to keep track.

Now, you may be wondering that if I'm so inactive, why do I care about my username change anyway, and you're right, but it's a principle thing, and I was wondering if it's possible to have like a dialogue box in the Pokebase/RMT/Metabase advertising that the changes are now active, perhaps like a pinned question or something.

If it's already in practice, my bad, and I'll try to be more active and catch the next time, but if not, I was hoping this could be implemented if it's not too time-consuming/complicated.

Not really. If there were a better way than adding six months to Pokemaster's last thread, then we would almost certainly be advertising it here. We will put a big noisy notice on that thread whenever username changes are active and use Discord announcements to help notify people.

A box linking into username changes is something Pokemaster could implement. It would be good if we were told the date ahead of time.


All righty then, I guess I'll have to keep an eye out for Discord. Is that very active nowadays? What's the official DB discord? Still, I hope there's a thread made on Pokebase/RMT as well, just for extra visibility, but I can understand not wanting to advertise name changes on Pokebase if it might cause too much chaos.
The DB Discord server is a little bit of updates, and mostly just a few of us saying random things, sending memes, and repeating each other, if I'm being totally honest. Still, anything important gamewise or sitewise does go on there. is the official Discord. You can subscribe to #announcements since we only put community-related info there.
