Hii I guess I never really PROPERLY introduced myself. I pretty much went aroudn randomly posting and stuff.. Sooo hii everyone!

I'm Jackie! I remember when Pokemon first came out, I was totally into it, then when 5th grade came around I sort of lost interest (hugeee gap and I have no idea what happened from then on to now) and now 5 years later I must admit I'm back into it. Especially with all the new additions and regions etc etc I have a lot of catching up to do! I look forward to meeting everyone. :)

Hi Jackie, welcome to SPPf!! You sure did wait awhile before you introduced yourself to us!! I am sure that you will have an enjoyable time here. You have already been here a week so I don't know if you will need some links or not... but I will post them anyways, it can't hurt!!

Here are some rules and links for you to look at!! However, credit for these links goes to Midnight Eefi, who posted a list of links in my newbie topic, and who inspired me to make a list of my own. Of course, credit also goes to the people that wrote these articles.

Announcements Forum (http://serebiiforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4)
Important announcements by Serebii and other members of the SPPf staff go in this forum. It is a good idea to check it frequently, so that you can stay updated on what is going on at the forums.

Use this to make changes to your siggy and update you profile, set your options, add an avatar and a profile piccy, and other cool things.

Rules (http://www.serebiiforums.com/rules.html)
These are the rules at the forums. You definitely need to read this, following the rules will be the best way to keep everybody on the forums happy, both yourself and the other members and staff. By following the rules, and displaying good judgement and posting skills will help you become a respected member of the community.

Newbie Help Topic/FAQ (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=91015)
This is a very helpful thread that gives a lot of info about the forums and how things work around here.

Forum Search (http://www.serebiiforums.com/search.php)
Use this to search for info on the forums. There is a chance that the answer to your questions may have already been answered.

User Ranks (http://serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=108697)
Meh, there have been a lot of confusion about the user ranks and the new little banners underneath our titles, so you may want to look at this, this shows the default titles that correspond to the number of posts that you have on the forum, as well as the little banners that correspond to postcount. Note that the titles listed are simply the default for your postcount, you can go to your user CP and change your title. Also, some of the forums that are rather busy and have topics that generally don't require a long reply will not count posts that you make in them towards your postcount. These forums will have a notation in italics underneath the forum description saying that posts don't count towards postcount. Also, moderators and administrators of SPPf have their own banners, they have no relation to their postcount. One last thing... although the banners/ranking systems are incentives to make more posts, you still need to make quality posts. A higher rank will not equal higher respect anyways. Respect is earned by quality of posts, not quantity.

Reading the first post, it helps! (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=104750)
It is always a good idea to read the first topic in a post completely, and not just the title of the topic. You will also want to make sure that you read the rest of the posts in a topic, or if it is a long topic, then make sure to read at least the last few posts, so that you know what direction the topic is heading, and whether or not a response is needed, and if a response is appropriate, you will know what a proper reply would be.

"I'm new" - Not an excuse (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=104750)
A short thread, it basically just lets you know that if you break any rules, saying "but I'm new and didn't know the rules" will not get you off the hook. It is every member's responsibility to know the rules of the forum before they post on it. This isn't to say that you have to be perfect or anything, because everybody makes mistakes. However, try your best to use good, sound judgement, and to make high-quality posts on the forums, and everything will be fine.

Adopt-A-Newbie Agency (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=87521)
This is a thread for new members to be adopted or for older members to adopt a new member. Basically, this is just for older members to help out new members until they get used to the forums.

Official Username Change Thread (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=96594)
If you ever want your username changed, then post a request here!!

Log Out Problems? This might help. (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=86680)
This is where you should go if you are having problems logging out of the forums.
