    Your userbar will automatically change based on the number of posts you've made (in sub-forums where posts count). There's no way to manually change it.

    Might be a silly question, but how long do usernames take to change after you've made your request in the username change thread (which was closed November)? I absolutely understand that changing usernames is a luxury that we're not entitled to whatsoever, but it's been over three months since the requests were made and some of these names could be taken by new members within such a long timeframe.

    Thanks!

    I think that they open it either every six or twelve months, so when the Username Change Thread is open, you can change it at those times. Correct me if I'm wrong, though.

    There are a few ways that I can see it being done using the software that the forum uses. However this would need a change within the CSS files that only Serebii and possibly a few other Admins could even get hold of.

    Otherwise, you'd could to code for a per post Via HTML, but HTML is disabled on most posts unless you get Admin to enable it. (The Code is <p align="justify"> or <div align="justify"> and </div> )

    Is there a thread for GTS trades you're proud of? Like if I want to squeal about how I offered (x) for (y) and got Shiny (y)?
    I have no idea what I'm doing.

    I believe there isn't such a thread. However, I think the Recent happenings threads may be the best place for this type of thing. I remember seeing some posts when I regularly did use those threads.

    Am I being blind or does the thread for lickitung/lickilicky not exist? I tried searching the kanto and sinnoh families in both the gen 6 and 7 forums on here but I cant seem to find it.

    Can someone post the link for me please?

    I'd try if I could find a Public one. There are few Gen 1 Pokémon Missing from Gen 6, such as Hitmons.

    The only Licklicky Trade thread I could find was the 5th Gen one, which is now hidden. I had the link saved on my local copy FAQ that I wrote for BW2.

    I could have seen let those Pokémon to be Omited initially, if they where not available in XY or Sun and Moon prior to Bank.

    Only one, and it's over: Meloetta, in December 2016. http://www.serebii.net/events/2016.shtml

    Usually Event Pokémon are often not given out during first year outside of Japan. Last year was crazy, we probably had the most available in a year. At one point, we had THREE* separate Events running at the same time! (The Last time I remember more than one event was two, in Gen 4 just before Gen 5, were The Legendary Beasts and Celebi were being done at the same time.)

    *Depending on the count, I could argue two, or five depending on how you count it.

    Is there anywhere I could see a list of things to watch out for when trading so you don't get traded hacked pokemon or something I learned that the event entei (shiny with flare blitz and extremespeed) might be very valuable and I was thinking I might be able to get a shiny latias for it but I'm a bit afraid I might get tricked and also what would provide as sufficient proof that mine is legit as I never thought it might be very sought after when I first got it?

    growlithepuppy: You can probably post about it both places, just make sure you don't promise it more then one trade partner. You could also just try 6th Gen and later move over to 7th Gen if no one seems interested in 6th Gen.

    Will Ellie or someone else make a new Name Change thread?
    The Big Problem with the Pokémon Anime - An Essay and a Rant: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...A00EZpFVd8/pub

    I make it no secret that I despise the Pokémon anime due to the status quo problem I have discussed in my document above. I will continue to state my positions and criticize the anime until the day that problem gets fixed or the day I pass away. If you are bothered or annoyed by the words in my posts then you may either ignore me or take on my arguments.

    The previous set of name changes hasn't even been completed, so why do we need a new thread?

    So that I can request for a new name. Isn't that obvious?

    The Admins are pretty busy, so they will get to all of the name changes when they can. Please read this post here that I'm going to link. It's the previous name changes thread that has been closed, but reading Ellie's post at the very top will help you out.

    So it can happen at any time during this month and then it won't close at the end of the month but after 30 or 31 days? I'm worried this month our opportunity will be skipped over and I'll have to wait another 7 months

    I doubt it will get skipped. The only way I can see that happening is if a lot of people annoy and pester the Admins about it. According to the rules name changes are a privilege, not a right. Eventually the new thread will be up, and people that requested name changes from the last thread will get their name changed. The Admins will get to it when they can I'm sure. It could be tomorrow, it could be next week, I have no clue. They are busy people. The best thing that you can do is just continue to be patient and keep checking the SPPf Help section everyday. Eventually the new thread will be posted. I can't really give you an answer because I don't know when it will be posted. Whatever you do though don't pester the Admins about it. They won't like that. I hope this helps.

    I'm sure this has been asked before, but will there be a Sun & Moon style background?
