    So I'm Chron, hi

    You've probably seen me around some already, especially if you're on team Memegeist. The version of me that you're gonna get on this site is way chiller than who I actually am as a person, because this is the first forum I've joined in a long time that I haven't been moderating.

    So basically what I do is I'm a college student, doing Psychology and Communication Studies, and I hope to graduate with my Bachelor's in December. I hope to continue my education and get a Master's in School Psychology, so I can work in the field of education and make a meager attempt to help kids grow up without being a teacher.

    As far as mons goes, I've been playing since FireRed, which I got when I was 10. My favorite games, as well as the most nostalgic games for me, are Black and White. Most of my IRL friends hate B/W, but thankfully most competitive communities I've been apart of love it, so I feel much more at home here when it comes to mons.

    I started competitive mons back in early X/Y, where I began breeding and training "competitive" teams, which were really just anything I got from Wonder Trade that had half decent IVs and was fun to use. RIP in peace, Talonflame. I mainly do draft leagues and randbats nowadays, usually hovering in the 2100s on the Randoms ladder, and I have 1 draft league win and 2 finals appearances, as well as a smattering of #1 seeds and round 1 playoff knockouts. Screw playoffs.

    My favorite types are definitely Bug, Fairy, and Flying, with some favorite mons being Scolipede, Volcarona, Azumarill, Whimsicott, Noivern, and Crobat.

    Also some friends of mine on this site are Haunted Ditto, Duo, Mango, and KnightBlader, and I hope to make more as I continue to spend time here!

    Looking forward to meeting all you, famskis

    This post merely describes what I like and what aspirations I might have, whilst naming the first small pink thing I catch on this site "this is my intro" is more of a deeper introduction into who I am as a person

    Hiya @Chron and welcome to Lake Valor! I’ve seen you around a bunch and I do think I’ve stopped and said hi but it’s great to know a bit more about you!

    I’m curious! what’s your favorite thing about studying communications and what’s your favorite thing about studying psychology? Could be something small like even a small concept you learned in a class you took.

    Finally, I’m actually interested to hear you have moderation experience. There’s not a lot of people nowadays that have moderation experience on forum boards. What forum software did your old communities use if you remember by chance?

    I hope to see you around the site and Discord a ton and get to know you more :) glad to meet ya!

    Heya! We've had a short conversation before but welcome to the forum, I am also still in newbie territory too~

    I'm also in college (but in a whole other field of study lol) and LOVE Black and White as much as you do! I also got into competitive around the same time (but dropped off the grid just after Sun/Moon came out because I was, and still am, overhelmed by the new Pokémon and strategy changes and all that). I believe the more we talk the more likely I'll be able to get back where I was before, or perhaps way further than I ever was as a /casual/ competitive player.......hh

    I get this odd feeling that we're bound to quarrel quite a bit because you've got the personality quirks I have a hard time working around even irl, but I won't judge, I'm really interesting in making actual friends on this site and I hope we try our best to get along <M

    For communications, oh gosh; Probably the real-world practicality of learning and understanding the motivations and mechanics behind the words and actions that people transmit. In fewer words, it's cool to observe communication principles in everyday life, and it helps you understand and work with people. For psychology, there is so much to choose from; of course, tying in with communication, social and evolutionary psychology are probably my favorite fields. Doing research in these fields just feels so... meaningful and exciting. Even though my two conference-displayed posters weren't creating new theorems, they were still discussing really fun concepts (if anyone's interested lmk I might share some of my research tomorrow, some of it's even relevant to online forums).

    The site was Planet Minecraft, and back when I was a forum moderator about 3 years ago... Xenforo and BBCode are the only names I can remember of forum software and I'm almost positive we didn't use either one (maybe some BBCode stuff). It was quite jank (I think it had around 50,000 active users a day in its heyday) but it was my home for many years and I loved it. That's where I developed a passion for writing, RPs, and poetry, although admittedly I'm a bit rusted in those fields now, but still enthusiastic about them.

    Yeah I wanna apologize for coming off as a bit abrasive when I was doing team critiques. It was 2AM for me and I wasn't in the right frame of mind. After reading your status post, I totally get where you're coming from, and throughout school I was really the same way, although thankfully I wasn't really conventionally "bullied", but moreso passive-aggressively manipulated as the resident "smart kid". I hope we're able to become friends too, man! Gen 5 is always an easy way to bond with me tbh

    @Mango I mean it is but really only in draft, just because it's dummy reliable and I'm such a fan of scouting

    love your tags bb <3

    Welcome to LV! I happen to be a fan of B/W as well. I feel like those games are a bit underrated.
