    Just try to go at a slower pace while searching, I know its easy to get into a rhythm and stop paying attention. Maybe practice clicking the arrows with your cursor instead, or taking your finger off the arrow key momentarily between each movement.

    Idea a button to delete avatars

    When you want to sell an avatar, there's an alternative method to list them singularly that eliminates the risk of it accidentally placing the wrong one. Through navigation go item inventory > avatars > pokebay button next to the specific avatar and it will take you to an auction listing page for just that one.

    Answered I think I'm locked out of my account

    Have you tried resetting your password via email? When you attempt to logon to Vortex, under the username and password section there's a little link called "forgot your password?", if you signed up with a correct email you'll be able to regain entry that way.
  5. Hi @Patrick, I've recently been updating the map pool pages for Vortex's wiki, (for example, https://wiki.pokemon-vortex.com/wiki/Map_11) I've used these pages since I started, and last night I updated them all to reflect on v4 changes - adding ultra beasts, moving things to the rare section that were common in the past, removing things that don't spawn anymore (like ivysaur, shelgon etc) and adding about 30+ missing gen 7s and fixing up things that appear day and/or night. I've gotten it to the point where I'm quite happy but am feeling there's still a few inaccuracies or things missing particularly from the rare pools, and was wondering if you possibly had a document that listed all of the appearances, rarities and day/night specifics of each map so I can make these pages 110% accurate, as https://wiki.pokemon-vortex.com/wiki/List_of_Pokemon_By_Location this page still lists some pokes like ivysaur as catchable. Its all good if not, just thought I'd ask before trying to figure out the data between some map hunting friends. I'm also happy to help with adding in the gen 8 pokes when they are incorporated into the game when that time comes, or fixing some minor v4 errors on the list of pokes by location page, just let me know Thanks!
  6. So I had an idea I wanted to share because it seemed alright in theory.. I was thinking about how it'd be cool if we had a chance to incorporate and show off some art in-game. For example: - being able to add a small banner or picture into our profile bios - somewhere on the site to display custom digital art done by ourselves or commissioned by others of our pokemon. (maybe a tab in our profile, or a link when we bring up a pokemon or our card in bot commands on Discord) - if it gained popularity, an official pokemon art contest of some sort I've seen sites in the past that have allowed users to buy art commissions from others with in-game currency that have worked really well, where good quality art is a real hot commodity and makes accounts deemed "better". (can direct you there if you wanna check it out). People could offer their events or PD in exchange for nice profile banners, drawings of their favourite pokes, etc. I feel like it would diversify our community and bring in a new artsy audience if it were given enough significance and attention in the game. It would also be a nice little hobby that would give people something other to do than trading to acquire events/wealth in Vortex if their banners and pokemon art are sought after. We've got the forums here for people to put up "stalls", and if it were linked to us in bot commands I'm sure it'd be fun looking at great art and having a laugh at some silly stuff people come up with as well. Just thought I'd share as it could definitely attract a whole different bunch of Vortex players and give people a chance at getting pokemon/money in-game without dealing with the headache of trading and the whole "skemming" culture, which detracts from the enjoyment for some.
  7. "I'm looking for a way to make experience you did not train yourself not as appealing or valuable." Just to preface I'm a newer player who does not trade for exp. It'd be nice to not negatively affect people who do trade for exp too greatly as I'm sure they spend some real money and keep our DP economy in check. But, I also feel like it would be nice to reward the efforts of people who go on vortex and train pokemon for themselves too. My idea is to create a separate statistic for self-trained exp and have it added to the global trainers formula, and prominently displayed on their profile to show off. (and if you wanted to take it even further, to the poke's profiles as well). Obviously it can't be backdated, but the profile stat could be implemented and start at 0 from the day it is to give everyone a fair start. People like showing off stats and I feel people would like to train a lot to get the "self trained exp" on their profile high. If it were added to the formula for global top trainer, it could be worth (example) 1.5% more points than exp that was traded to them. If the exp leaves the account, it changes to traded exp in terms of global points. So, we don't kill exp trades and trainers. We also reward people who train for themselves and give a fair chance at progressing through the ranks via training yourself and not trading. We can also see how much a person has trained right there on their profile - an added bonus being that people will know who to trust more easily in terms of legitimacy. Hypothetically I'd be more comfortable dealing with a trainer who has trained a lot, rather than somebody who has possibly been banned recently and doesn't have much self-trained exp displayed on their profile.

    Both Seasonal Porygon forms

    I was just thinking it'd be cool to be able to see what seasonal month the shield/hammer/sword porygons were obtained on their profile. Sort of like the "first edition" badge that event pokes have.
  9. I agree. People who barely play the game (catching,battling) and acquire exp are ranked way higher than people who grind battles and have impressive unique count and it seems unbalanced.
