Post subject:  The Spriting Shack - 10,000 Hits – Six Month Anniversary!


Edit 4/14/08: Okay, a lot of the stuff here is now wrong and has been outdated, so I've completely re-written this page (also in part to integrate Valentine's Advertisement Standards)

The purpose of the Spriting Shack is to provide online pokemon fans with the highest caliber Sigs and Avies instead of having to sift through pathetic shop after pathetic shop on the forum they want the avy / sig for. However, this purpose has been GREATLY expanded to teaching the general pokemon e-community how to make better graphics on a computer (as of 4/14/08, this is currently our biggest resource). The Spriting Shack shops are run by very experienced graphic artists, not just some people who start a shop and get bored of it 2 weeks later. The Spriting Shack is also a fun place to hang out and meet other pokemon fans. So, join today, whether you are an artist, a person in need of a better sig / avy, or just someone who wants to have fun talking about pokemon (or if you have always desired to become a mod and think you have what it takes :wink: )!

The main site is also a great place to check out,
Of course, right now there's practically nothing on it, but i have written many spriting and pokemon tutorials which will soon be up!
We now have 25+ pages of well-written content, and we are constantly writing more.

If you're skeptical about joining, and think "Oh its not that good; nobody uses it anyways" I want to point out a couple of things:

1: This topic has the most replies of ANY topic in the testing and advertising secion.


3: Most of our members are incredibly active. DialgaFan has an even higher post count than me, the founder :0

4: We actually put effort into this site, and we have showed that we care by actually spending money (Oh my god!) to get a domain name.

5: All the cool people are doing it (oh wait peer pressure doesn't work on the Internet. Damnit!).

6: We currently have 54 members and 4157 articles.

EDIT: We now have a list of FREE sigs you are encouraged to use to help us advertise!:

Click here to view our current gallery of free sigs!

Feel free to submit your own! I will reward you up to 10 psybucks or if you have an SS account 250 Spriting Tokens and 10 psybucks as well!

List of current members from psypokes:

    Uchiha Itachi
    Roar of Time
    Keltic Torchic
    Groudon King - (brother of a past Psypoke mod :0)
    blastoise trainer

And we keep getting bigger! An average of 1.5 new members every day! So please, join the SS today :D

golden-dan, there is no set sig; it'd be great if you make your own :D
RoT, Thanks for being such an active member :D

by the way...

OMG EVERYONE MUST TRY THE ARCADE! (But no one can beat my highscore :twisted: )

Hm, why do you, tennis, put you and Petey Piranha as moderators of most of the forums? If you're the site admin, you automatically have moderator rights to every forum, and thus don't need to set yourself up as being moderator of every forum - that's what you set the regular forum users up as.

And you say you have an M.A.T., or some sort of application. Why can't I find it? Is it in some out-of-the-way, I'd-never-expect-it-to-be-here forum?

Petey we've got a crisis!
Members cant use the arcade! Only admins :? I tried to fix it but i couldnt. Maybe you could give it a shot? BTW, you broke my highscore :cry:

4ever_bug_catcher: Thanks for joining! Could you help advertise us in your psypokes signature with one of the pics above? Its cool if you dont want to though. We're just trying to recruit as many members as we can :D

*edit*: Sorry DNA it was an instant post; I wasn't being rude :O I answered your questions on the next page :)

Post subject:  awsome

i cant believe it that this forum has gotten as good as it is now, i would have never expected it, i mean an arcade, a chatbox, awsome shops
everything is great, and will keep improving the more members we get,
the better it will keep becoming.

and those sigs are awsomely done by me so if any1 disses those sigs u betta run :twisted:

Post subject: 

OK guys, listen.

I cannot get this crappy arcade to work. I'm sorry to let you all down. :cry:

Also, DNA. Yeah, I dunno why we put us as mods in forums when we always do total patrols anyway. Second, the "M.A.T.", I dunno what that is. As far as I know, our forums are publicly viewable.

Finally, don't get all down feeling...WE HAVE AN INSTANTLY MESSAGING CHATBOX! So easy to use, and you don't need mIRC or anything! Go to the whose online tab, find the chatbox part, and click "Click to enter chats". This feature is open only to members of course.

Sorry, I should've explained.

Its growing really fast, and we need some mods. PM me an application if you wish to become one.

By M.A.T., I meant Moderator Aptitude Test. Eh, I probably should've just said "mod application", since I forgot no one but DC knows what M.A.T. is.

That's what I meant. I tried to find the app, but I never did.

Still, you don't have to put yourselves down as mods of all the forums, you know....

Well, we want at least two mods in every forum, and when we put it down as us modding those forums, it means we are the ones who are going to do the spam deleting, etc. in those forums more than the others. Also, you dont pm me a mod app. form, you pm me saying you want to be a mod, and i'll ask you individual questions. By the way, I'd be honored if you joined :wink:
