Why work towards post-related Pokémon userbars when you can just use a Ditto, Mew, Smeargle, Zorua or Zoroark and copy the Pokémon you want? Why bother joining clraik's Altador Cup community or art events, taking care of Ryugotchis, creating engaging posts, climbing community challenge ladders and so on when you can use a Mimic and clone the userbar you want?
Our hope is that creating content that rewards you for engaging with our community will facilitate further engagement. The userbars you receive are proof that you were here when something was happening, or that you worked hard and obtained something neat for your efforts. Userbars that replicate other userbars need to have limitations, or else we'd sabotage efforts to garner participation in the community. I appreciate the interest in adding more userbars with copying functionality, but this feels like it would ruin the sentiment behind what we're working for.
Oof ok fair enough. I don't want to take away from other people's successes, I just thought the function was really cool since people were talking about wishing they could trade their bars and it seemed like a happy medium but I get it. I would hope I didn't come across as trying to undermine the system though. I was honestly mostly excited because mimics are cute and almost the perfect shape for a userbar and I don't think there's much D&D rep on here so maybe instead I'll change my request to some iteration of D&D related userbars?
Thank you @Hollow for Pumpkaboo Thank you @Orbit for the Jackalope Ryu
A Deck of Many Things bar that maybe has a few different unique designs (and it swaps automatically between them when certain conditions are met? So you never know what's ACTUALLY going to appear in your stack.)
A D20 bar, probably tied to a forum game where people try to hit a certain digit with random rolls? (If such a thing is even possible.) I've seen stuff like this on Gaia Online in it's heyday and miss that type of thing so much.
A Bardic Inspiration bar, possibly tied to a creative contest like making up D&D related songs or writing short stories or poems.
Gelatinous Cube bar! Possibly similar to Ditto in how you look for it and obtain it, but instead you get it because you "wandered into" the thing and it ate you. Very much has to be a gross bright green with bones or armor in it.
After trying and failing some weeks in a row, it seems like I really can't make it to the movie night sessions when they are at around 4~5am my time ;~;
Is there any chance we could have other time slots for these?

@(you need an account to see links) and @(you need an account to see links) thank you for your suggestion for the D&D userbars. With userbars the goal is to reflect themes, events and interests active on the site. For example everyone's love for Pokémon, event based bar like the Art Challenge or Bake Off, and seasonal bars like the Christams and Halloween bars. When it comes to D&D there really isn't much for activity regarding it on site. This being said this does not mean that if D&D became a more prevalent topic or theme or some form of event on site that your dreams of D&D userbars are our of the question.s
@(you need an account to see links) in regards to you being a night owl and wanting to host some of those streaming events on Discord you are more than welcome to organize some to accommodate more users
@Stardust for Hoser & @Wooloo for my moose!
@GreyFaerie for the UBs in my Siggy
I'm sorry to hear about failed attempts with events that had a variety of time slots. I'm not sure I know what you are referring to but I totally understand the frustration.
