Oct 23, 2018Hey everyone,Posted in: Azurilland Forums Updates
In the midst of the excitement and apprehension surrounding the forum move, we are happy to announce a staff promotion. This user has displayed endless drive and energy throughout their time as staff. Their technical knowledge and willingness to learn will be instrumental in setting up and improving our new site.
Please congratulate seaturtle on his promotion to Administrator!

Trusted individuals (probably admins and some mods) may have access to his content site, where walkthroughs and guides will be posted. Nothing changes here except for him making sure quality is good and accurate. This isn't an issue. However, if we were ever to split from Marriland, content that we write on the site would ultimately stay on his site.Quote from bluejay100 »-Would staff jurisdiction be limited only to the forums? I can only assume that Marriland would have content of his own to feature on his website, but presumably we would have nothing to do with it?
Admins will have complete access to the coding of the forums while mods would not. Permissions on other fronts (banning, etc.) are more customizable.-Exactly how much control over the forums would the staff (and perhaps coders) have? I am unfamiliar with the capabilities of Xenforo; what does Xenforo allow administrators and moderators to do (and not do)?
Marriland has given us permission to use his name in our projects (e.g. "Marricast"), and I can assure you that I'd want to start Azuricast once more when the new site launches. However, we must respect if he wishes for the name of one of these types of projects to be changed. The rest of the staff have been thinking over the events they want to keep - which ones are necessary and which ones could be dropped.-Will activities such as the social media posts, Azuricast, and other methods of branching activity outside of the forums be continued? While it's been great to see these activities going (kudos to the staff for continuing to manage these), they may not be completely necessary (or might even come in conflict a bit) with the Marriland brand. On the other hand, it certainly would be possible to keep them going. Back in the phpbb3 days (circa 2010-2011) there was a brief moment where a Youtube channel named specifically after the Marriland Forums was made, with the intention of featuring content from forums users. It didn't last, but Marriland himself didn't seem to have an issue with its existence, from what I can remember.
It would be affordable. I've been in touch with an admin from Lake Valor about the technical aspects of running a new forum system. They run on Xenforo and pay roughly $12 per month in costs.-What would the costs be of running a forum and/or website on our own?
We've considered Simple Machines, IPS, and vBulletin as well. Simple Machines would probably be our second choice if we ran by ourselves because it's free, and IPS also has potential for a lot of freedom. The LV admin advised against vBulletin, however, because of the archaic design and tendency to experience bugs.-Are there any other forum systems that have been considered?

Oct 20, 2018Thundawave posted a message on Azurilland's Sunset, and the Dawn of New OpportunitiesI'd be against any sort of Azurill line theme. It's time to think outside of that and become our own site.Posted in: Azurilland's Sunset and Your Memories
A theme I've been sitting on since yesterday (when we all heard the news) is Volcarona/the Relic Castle because of Volcarona's lore. The Pokemon was a replacement for the sun when volcanic ash covered the sky.
Anyway, while this wasn't necessarily surprising, it's definitely putting us on a time crunch. Please fill this thread with whatever suggestions you can!

Sep 20, 2018Hi everyone!Posted in: Azurilland Forums Updates
Due to the changes in activity levels in the Studio area, the Graphics Lounge has been merged into the parent Studio forum. The Beginner's Guide to GFX will remain a pinned thread in that forum, and the Graphics tag has been added to the Studio.
Thanks for reading, and keep on creating!
Sep 4, 2018Sorry for the long wait - busy schedule and the forums not cooperating can really delay things. The winner is keejot once more, now with 100% less Arceus head!Posted in: Contest Hall
Thanks also to Cursebreaker for creating an entry. It was super cute, and we enjoyed seeing your creation too! Both entries will likely appear on the Instagram at some point, so keep an eye out for that.

I went to a costume party as a Team Skull Grunt. One guy thought I was a "ghost ninja DJ," but everyone else seemed to like it.

Oct 29, 2018This wouldn’t be an Azuviin memories thread if there wasn’t an artwork for it.
There’s so much I want to say but at the same time I have no idea what to say. This site was literally my first introduction to the internet. I signed up when I started year 7, and it’s ending when I’m graduating year 12. My Pokemon obsessed 11 year old self decided to sign up to comment on the articles, and slowly eased to interacting with others on the forums. I was so anxious but I’m so glad I did it because it led me onto this beautiful journey.
My time on the internet is probably something like 80% Azurilland 20% everything else. If I didn’t have Azurilland I’m not sure what I would be doing on the internet other than wasting time. I’m a pretty simple person with very few interests, Pokemon.. art.. that’s basically it. I honestly can’t imagine how different my life would have been if Azurilland didn’t exist.
I’ve had some bad times but the forums saved me and helped me go on. This is such an amazing community, and I always felt safe and thought about. I wouldn’t be the person I am without Azurilland. It’s helped me grow up through my teenage years.
Marriland/Azurilland has inspired my creativity tremendously. I would be nowhere near where I am now artistically if it wasn’t for this site. I’ve learnt so much about art. The inspiration and encouragement from all the wonderful users here have brought me so far. Even the smallest mentions of my art makes me feel really special. I can’t express how much the forums have helped me grow creatively, and I’m so thankful for that.
I was incredibly fond of the creative boards, which I worked so hard in an attempt to revive. I poured so much effort into it, prioritising it over every single other responsibility I had in life. There was a small period of time when the creative boards really flourished, for Azurilland activity standards. But things eventually got out of hand I guess, I got my priorities wrong, expectations were too high and I burned myself out rather quickly. I stopping putting effort into the creative boards and it showed, the activity left when I left.
My fondest memory was the invitation to become a moderator, which was only a few months after I joined. I can’t even describe the feeling, I was still relatively new and young so it came out of nowhere. Being a moderator on this site was an absolute privilege. I have had some rough inactive periods, but my passion for keeping the site thriving has always remained the same. Thank you so much to all of the staff members who have poured their heart and souls into the site, and for being like family to me.
I resigned because I was being sent to a mental hospital for a month and obviously had no free access to the internet. I was expecting to come back after I was discharged, but I was no longer a moderator, meaning I was free from responsibilities. I decided I should take a break and take this time for myself instead of immediately getting back to work. While I miss being a moderator, this was definitely the best decision at the time. I kept trying to achieve more than I could handle, and it just burnt me out and made me feel terrible.
I’m incredibly awful at keeping up with clubs, I’ve been really inactive and kicked out of most of them. But the Paws and Claws tribe holds a really special place in my heart. Social anxiety is strong, especially online for me, but in PCT I somehow managed to break free from my anxiety riddled self and speak out and have actual conversations with people. I genuinely made some friends I enjoyed talking to and it just felt so magically comfortable.
Even though we’re moving to a new place I’m still really torn up that we’re leaving Azurilland behind.
Thank you everyone from the bottom of my heart. Let’s look forward to a brighter future together.

The framing is really solid here. Probably one of the best pictures you’ve put on the thread.
