  1. Archived in case you want to revisit this list again after Dec. 31. What exactly is this list by the way?
  2. Whoa, whoa, whoa, there's still plenty of meat on that noodle. Now you take this home, throw it in a pot, add some broth, a potato. Baby, you got a stew going.
  3. Nothing makes this place look less promising than impending doom, but we all knew this day would come. How should CT change in its final month before the new CT-less decade begins? Share your opinions and I'll share mine. First, away with buying limits. Just let them die. We don't have to enforce rules if we all know the end is near. One month to a young child is a long time, but to an adult, a month can pass by in a week. I know I speak for the majority when I say we're all old enough to know that time is moving faster than it used to. Who has time for limits? Second, let's also do away with banning. I mean, smurf it, why not? What's a 30-day ban going to do in mid-December? What's even a 7-day ban going to do when we have a two-digit number of days left? Third, we should stray away from our family friendly PG-rating on the game and the forums and draw the new line at R-rated content. No more replacing swear words with "elbow" or whatever it is now. We're going to go out, and we're going to go out raw. At least, that's how I see it. Comments, concerns, questions, conflicting consensuses, and corny one-liners are encouraged, but not required.
  4. I have a ramen packet in my pantry that has more value in the real world than my points and ctoons do combined. I'm just kidding, I don't believe that because I don't actually have a ramen packet. ...or a pantry.
  5. There aren't enough free hours in my day to read every comment. All I can do is thank each and every one of you for participating in Toon's nostalgia-heavy recreation of Cartoon Orbit. Also, that's a lie. I can do more than thank you. I've put every page of this comment thread on archive.is for future reading because I'm sure the forums will go down with the game.

  6. Doesn't that seem like a high starting bid? Nothing you've posted has gotten a single bid yet. Maybe start at 1-2k next time?
  7. I know Gen I and II by heart. Gen III not so much. I was asking if all of those had already been released. A simple "Yes", "No", or "Not yet" would suffice, but an answer stating which ones weren't available yet would be better. A checklist would be a future project, but I'm sure there are easier ways around this. Thank you, sir. You have answered my question.
  8. I'd like you to define "easy answers" in this case. There are 531 Pokémon Creatures in the cToon DataBase. A max of 151 of those are going to be Gen I, and that's assuming that every Gen I Pokémon cToon has been released. I'd love to go through the entire Pokédex for Gen I and compare it to the whole list of 531 Pokémon Creatures on the cToon Database, but that seems like a waste of my time. For me to go through Gens II and III? Forget about it. A simple answer is all I needed. Your answer is neither simple nor "easy". EDIT: I'd like to add that I used to be a contributor to the cToon DataBase, so I know good and well what it is and how to get to it.
  9. I was browsing CollecTowne Plaza shops when I noticed a Seel cToon from Pokémon in stock. My first thought was, "Surely this is a re-release. They can't still be finding new Gen I toons to add after all these years." It wasn't a re-release, so that begs the question: Are there still Pokémon from Gen I that haven't been released yet? In the same vein, I'll go ahead and ask if there are any unreleased Gen II or Gen III Pokémon toons.
  10. It looks like this has been added. Gracias!
  11. Anyone who hasn't already checked out Toon's Massive Cartoon Network Archival Project (MCOAP) should do so. Sadly the site is a shell of its former self nowadays, but you can still get a glimpse of it via the Wayback Machine.
  12. I bet you a candy bar and a half I've already posted about this, but since so little attention has been given to it, here I go again. We've all seen posts that simply say "Points" or "Offer" in the description. They're infuriating because the posting user essentially circumvents the requirement of specifying what they want for their posted cToons. It's been a problem since the early days and nothing has been done about it. I want that to change. I'm tired of these wishy-washy users who don't know what they want. I've been guilty of making posts like this myself, but I can hardly condone it now. Here's why: "Points": If a user wants to sell a toon for the highest point price, theoretically they should do so in the auctions. Selling to the highest bidder is what an auction is designed to do after all, but because CT provides more than one way to cash-in a toon, users will go with the safest option. The TB, which is completely controlled by the seller, has become the de facto way to profit from toons, and this level of control cuts so much power from auctions that it nearly makes them a relic of the past. For example, if you want points for your Beta Testers, would you sell via auction, where there's no control over selling price or bidders, or would you sell via TB, where anyone can bid and you give the final say? TB, for sure, is the safe answer because auctions are dead thanks to...the TB. Though I don't condone posting high-value toons in auctions, I think posts with descriptions as vague as this need to be abolished. "Offer": This is even worse because it essentially encompasses everything bad about "Points" with the added possibility of the buyer also wanting toons. In the same vein that the TB has undercut auctions with offers of points, the TB has also decimated the viability of old fashioned trades. Offline trades here have dwindled to the state of including contest awards, gifts, or toons that aren't included in TB posts, and live trades have never really taken off (think offline trades with extra steps). It's sad. If a seller just wants points, buyers can view what the highest point offer is, but when toons are included in one's offer, the buyer is left in the dark about what the most valuable offer could be. At least when a seller puts "Points" as their description, there's some idea as to what they want. With "Offer", the description might as well be blank. It's as helpful as your home WiFi password on the far side of Mars. Both of these phrases should be banned. If you don't know what you want for your toons, there's an appraisals forum. For everything else, there's MasterCard the auctions page.
  13. I have three suggestions that I'd like to make about updating the Suggest a Toon subforum: 1. This needs to be its own full-fledged forum board and not a subforum of Feedback & Suggestions. This has always stuck out like a sore thumb to me because it's the only subforum on here with subforums of its own. The description for F&S can be updated to reflect that it is a forum dedicated to posts for suggestions other than additional cToons. As it stands, SaT is a subforum of F&S with several sub-subforums dedicated to specific types of cToon suggestions grouped by network/company of origin. 2. Should SaT become its own forum board, all content on its subforum "The Other Stuff" should be migrated onto the default SaT board. There's no plain reason why a subforum should exist when no content can be posted to it outside of sub-subforums. Use less navigation when additional navigation is unnecessary and there are fewer issues IMO. This migration should be easy. 3. Add a subforum to SaT for video game-related cToon submissions. Because CT now admits video game-based cToons, a subforum grouping all such suggestions together is reasonable. All existing video game-related suggestions could be moved to this board too in an effort to de-clutter the subforum. Let me know what you think
  14. I'm glad you've persisted in your desire to become the ultimate CT SD champ. I don't know a lick about rankings or statistics, but you've got my vote as the best.
