Suggestions Go HereOkay! So now that the tasks suggestions journal has gone over really well, I want to make a journal for general or specific suggestions that you may have regarding the group, ideas for in-universe items and rewards, NPCs, locations, collaboration things, Events, and so on. If you have an idea on how to something better, post it here. It doesn't matter what it is: from the Wiki to the folders to how you think it would be better if we did X instead of Y, post what you think here! Even if I do not reply to everything, I will check this journal on and off to see what else is said. This is going to be The Journal for anything you want to express, any constructive critique regarding how we can make the group better for everyone, and so on! Make sure your comments have an actual suggestion for how we can fix any problem you spot - that is most important of all. If they don't, try to be very clear in what bothers you so that anyone who might want to think of a solution knows what they a
TASKS! Give us your suggestions!We are in the middle of working on the whole bulletin board system. If I haven't mentioned it before, these not-mission not-events are going to be called tasks. They are like a mini-mission. For an idea on their simplicity, think back to the single-sentence goals of Mission 1. We are going to be moving to a different place in the Tao-verse each month for these, so feel free to give suggestions and ideas for a variety of places that are not just Tao Village! The best tasks can be described in a sentence or two, and always have a concrete goal - though often, should have many routes of going about it!So please, offer your ideas here, and look forward to the introduction of 'tasks' very soon!
New Icon Mini ContestSo, we're about to enter a new mission soon. One that has a new theme: "sacrifice"If you're interested in competing to have your icon be the next icon for this group, please leave your entry here!Bonus points for having Micle (Grand Kec) and one of the yellow-eyed Zoroark from the current story... unless you have a better creative vision, of course! Animated is preferred. You can make neat little small animations with Photoshop, or even put images into Flash to make them. A good tip is to make art 3-4x larger than it will be in the icon, but don't get too detail heavy. Constantly zoom out to make sure it looks good.Only requisite is using the logo from the doujin and current avatar: http://purplekecleon.deviantart.com/art/PMD-e-Doujin-2-318457750It can be in any color.Time limit is: when I find one I really want to use
Spring cleaningWe had to remove some folders to make way for newer, cooler folders, so some of you may have noticed that some of the old ones are gone! (Like Cameo requests from events long past, Memes from long past, etc).The works themselves are not gone, and if you find that your works were removed from the group because of folder deletion and want to resubmit them to the more up-to-date, present folders, go ahead!I'll edit this journal as I think of more things to say, but that was the meat and potatoes of it.edit 1:We're actually going to be creating folders dedicated to catching up on missions/events if you wish to do the old ones and want a place to show off your work that isn't Misc. Adventures, and we'll also be creating a folder to show off personal stories that would normally (as of now) go in Misc. Adventures but clearly deserve a more specialized area.edit 2:We have a folder named Personal Stories now! If you'd like, please move your personal stories to that folder. Art a
A word about Events, Missions, and so onHi! So, as you know by now, Event 7 has started and teams are still split. I need to make an announcement regarding that for everyone, especially new teams: You may choose to do Event 7 as a reuniting event for your team, if it was split before. You may also choose to start out a new team split up by having two Pokemon who don't know each other meeting. You may ALSO choose to act as if your team did know each other but got split up, even if it's a new team. You have freedom here to act as you want. Either split, or together again.PMD-e is going to undergo a sort of split where Missions are more story-oriented, though more openly-worded than before. They were always supposed to be a thing where you basically do what you want as long as you do (or mess up) the general goal. Somewhere along the line I got too specific in the goals in order to make it line up with the Epilogues I had in mind, which was No Good because people interpreted that to mean they were very strict whe

Wiki Editors wanted!Okay, so basically we're lagging behind in Wiki pages being updated because... there's a lot of stuff! And a lot of the admins are busy working on stories or other related PMD-e things.Here's the wiki for everyone who doesn't know the link: http://papayakitty.com/wiki/Main_PageIf you'd like to apply for an account get on the IRC and ask Mike about it. We have standards for the articles, though! It's important that each article be properly informed and written well.Here's our giant to-do list: http://papayakitty.com/wiki/PMDE:Community_portalHere's easy access to the IRC: http://mibbit.com/?channel=%23pmdexplorers&server=irc.veekun.comIf you already have an IRC chat client, the server is irc.veekun.com and the channel is #pmdexplorersOn pages that are poorly filled out, don't be afraid to PM me, Marl, or Mike in IRC for information about an area or specific NPC. Though, I'm likely to know the most about it, followed by Marl, then Mike.I
A GoodbyeIt’s hard for me to fully realize that we founded PMD-E over two years ago. It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long at all! I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun.This place has changed quite a bit since it began! Take a look at the first couple of missions and events and compare them to the current ones. It’s almost an entirely different being now! Whether that’s a good or a bad thing is completely up to you guys, but I personally think it was good.Running PMD-E has taught Mel and I a lot about a great deal of things, and although it was fun, we’ve learned some hard lessons during the course of this group. We’ve learned that while you may have a really good friend that you enjoy talking to a lot, they may just be really bad at helping you run large projects. Or maybe their ideas aren’t very workable with your own ideas. Or maybe they can’t handle responsibility in the slightest.This doesn’t mean they ca
Merlot-sponsored accessories for Mission 5...Chloe? Is that you?Chrys..! I can’t believe you finally came!Oh my gosh, how you’ve grown! How long have you been a pupa!?This? This happened just last night. It came on really sudden, I couldn’t really hold it off any longer... I guess I was just ready.Ohhh, I can’t believe I missed it! I feel terrible!It must have been so traumatic for you, evolving all alone with no idea what was happening to your body or why you were getting all fat or what those little yellow things on your...U-um...Well, actually, I feel fine! Being a Swadloon is much... cozier.Oh... really? Well, that’s a relief! I wish I had your attitude when I was your age! I was quite a mess, myself, hahaha...…Brother, your dress. It’s in tatters...Oh, haha, so it is! We’ve been through a lot down at the village tonight.But repairs can wait, I think. This heavy old thing is just slowing me down. What I really need is a brand new one that’s better f
Sick of the BitchingThis is an angry post. Because shit just got real.I am getting very tired of the constant whining and crying by bronies when they don't get their way. Fans in general can never be 100% pleased, I know I play the Sims, but screeching like babies about alicorn Twilight (I have heard way too much bawwing over such a simple thing that most of us saw coming from episode 1), or the realization that Derpy is not coming back, or Hasbro CADing fighting is magic. Hasbro lets us bronies get away with a LOT of stuff, and we take it for granted, then when they think we go too far, or decide to evolve the show in a different way, bronies actually make DEATH THREATS to the writers?! And harass Lauren Faust? And embarrass us to the point where you don't even want to associate with the culture anymore? I can't honestly see why they would make a petition to use copyrighted characters without permission. Think logically.I do love this show, even though todays episode was pretty so-so, and it's my favor
Spammer alert!Ok, yesterday I woke up this afternoon to several spam comments in my inbox, all on the same deviation. They say things like "How to Start Your Own Busines", "Real ways to make money using computers and the Internet", and "Have fun loosing pounds the easy way while you busy" (blatant spelling/grammar errors are blatant) but I have already marked them as spam. The users who sent these and many that have been reported to me are as follows:rupeshbhatt88juicysaucezetpap3dmansAndresBekhomeAnimeSoulFanBoiDreamyCakesExmrblondeGalyPolandKn0ELCMfyiGxeg2Lord-MarduKSickmaxTheLoveStoriesTormalalexRRbstyle82carrazzoneetsn86hcmerhanhmkom2000hotplainriceliftboy-liftboylingeringreposemartijnrouwendalmimix666nicgilbert-vbfpmcmfsaparatusteppoka

Pokemon X and YYo I know it's been announced and it's official and all that, but you can't add any Pokemon from that generation to your teams until the game actually comes out later this year.That is all!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bIrWryFc7A
