Basically, I want you to promise me that you'll thoroughly think about every post that you make, especially when you are directly responding to someone in a manner that either contradicts what they are saying or in a way that you feel is defensive towards yourself. If you really can't tell if what you have to say may start an argument, possibly check with me. You can even ask Ramon, I have a good track record with keeping him out of trouble.
No, I'm saying that VEY was, at times, sounding like she was trying to slap you in the face.
You have been improving, since the Art Contest incident, though. I saw that you went to Meljay (brokenjoker) for help, recently, which was a very mature move on your part. Like Vey recently said, you just have to step back a bit, when you feel the urge to say something back to someone. You have to think "can this cause an argument".
In the event of that Art Contest incident, what I think you SHOULD have said when you saw that your suggestion was starting to backlash would be something along the lines of this "it appears that my suggestion is being taken the wrong way. I apologize for any drama this may have caused and I will kindly back away from this. I did not mean to offend anyone and, if I did, then I apologize."
Now, I see that, a lot of the time, people say mean things about you because of how you often get into these arguments. Now, personally, I know that a lot of this is due to people instigating stuff with you, knowing how you have a tendency to get "passive aggressive", in which you lash out once someone seems to be attacking you. However, in the cases of the Art Contest thing and the fan fiction thing, I DO believe that you could have been much more civil about it.
Would you be willing to promise me one thing? It could prove beneficial to your future reputation here, on ZU.
I'm not going to be annoyed with you, I just have some friendly advice for you. I do HAPPEN to agree a bit with Vey on this particular matter, but I'm not quite as mean about it as she is. I figure it's better for people to understand if you say something in a way that doesn't sound like a slap to the face.
Something to help complete the 'dex in Pearl, preferably. Like, when I traded for the Ditto I caught there, I traded a Magmar to Pearl since it's impossible for me to get it there otherwise. See, the only way to get a Magmar in Pearl without trading/breeding is to catch a Magby and I have to have LeafGreen version in my DS for that and I lost my copy, so yeah.
Also, you didn't tell me whether or not you need a Spiritomb. xP
Its profile had the purple box that said PKRUS when you gave it to me, so I thought it might spread to my other Pokemon. But it didn't, not even while I left it in the PC for awhile so I could battle someone online.
But ah, it's no biggie. I enjoy training Pokemon no matter how fast or slow they grow, I don't want it THAT badly. Also, Kami's at level 4 now since I started training it a little while ago. Also, I find it cool that he knows Shadow Claw and Crunch! You're a good breeder. :3
