    Awesome video. I’d definitely recommend putting the link to the site in your signatures on forums. I need to start working on that.

    Great video, thanks for the update!

    blahhh at work and youtube is blocked :( I’m pissed cause I wanna know the standings lol I’ll watch later tonight.

  3. kwisdumb

    @Qua: No names were named, but basically one person has 70+ entries, and everyone else has either in the teens or below that, heh.

  4. Joshua Hall

    NOT COOL, guys, NOT COOL, haha

    So, what, I’ve got like a .001% chance at winning this contest? Nice.

  5. Dave Hueglin

    You still have a better chance of winning this contest than of winning the lottery. Best part was it was free to enter. Good way to get the word out about your site guys.

  6. kwisdumb

    Yeah, there’s still a lot of time left in the contest, and there seems to be more and more traffic here lately, so I still think anyone could take this.

  7. I hope I’ve got a few refs! Hopefully Pokegym trolls understand to put me as their ref, haha

    Yeah I’ve been spamming the Gym boards just to get my sig out there. I’m not too concerned about the contest I’d just really like to bring more traffic to the site. Also Adam do you ever take off that hat or is it just a video thing?

    • Adam Capriola  → Kyle

      Hahah I pretty much wear that hat or some hat all the time. My camera makes my hair look worse than it really is so I make sure to wear a hat during the videos.

      I had gotten my haircut during the winter and wanted a John Connor style haircut (Terminator 2) but the girl didn’t do it right so I just decided to let it growwww and might get it touched up before I go back to school in September.

    Hey Adam:

    A couple of people didn’t know you had to put an email, just the username. So some of my refs put yoyofsho16, and some put yoyofsho16@yahoo.com. Will both be accepted?

  12. alex d

    Phew, thanks a bunch Adam. I was sweating for a second.

    YOU DA BOSS

    If I may ask: What is the rule on IP addresses? I’ve had my girlfriend, grandmother, and Cousin all sign up with me as their reference, but I just realize there might be some conflict as we’re all on the same network and may have the same IP address, and I didn’t want anyone to think I was cheating or anything.

    As I know a few people who live in a multiple-player household, I thought I’d bring this up to avoid confusion.

    • Adam Capriola  → kwisdumb

      There were a few instances where people signed up with the same name (or very slight variation) under 3 separate e-mails under 1 IP address in the span of like 15 minutes…those were discounted.

      Does your grandmother play Pokemon btw? haha Try to keep your refs to people who play Pokemon if possible. ;)

    Ah, alright. Just making sure.

    Ha, I’ve been trying to get my Grandmother to play Pokemon, as we have a pretty big Pokedad/Pokemom community here, but it’s been no dice so far.

    Thanks for the site.

    I thought of getting my parents to sign me up…

    But my moral standards are too high.

  19. kwisdumb

    Ha. I completely lack a moral compass.

    Good luck to all in the competition. I have a feeling in the next few weeks it’s really going to heat up as the set draws closer/is released and more people join the site. Should be interesting.

    Will there be another update posted, Adam?

    Hey my friend said he refered me but he didnt get the email

    • Adam Capriola  → rodrigo

      If he did not get a confirmation e-mail, he needs to either check his junk mail box or fill out the newsletter form again.

    I know we’re a bit off from the deadline, but are you revealing how this is going to work? Is it going to be a draw out of a hat kind of thing, random number assignment, etc?

    Just wondering. Keep up the good work!

    • Adam Capriola  → kwisdumb

      I think I will assign everyone numbers and use a random number generator (random.org) to pick the winner.

      I might do different heats to make things a little more suspenseful. >:) (only if that keeps the same probabilities, I think it does? Any mathematicians out there?)

      P.S. will respond to everyone’s comments soon, I just want to get this league set up first

    How does random work? Does it weigh the choice for multiple entries? Or will you just say “COntestant X has 400 entries, so 1-400 will be his victory.”

  31. alex d

    So does it process entries automatically? Or do you just assign numbers yourself, on paper?

    Hey Adam,

    I’m having my league tomorrow and I was hoping to bring my lappy and have some of the players refer me. I have about 10 – 20 regulars that show up, but I thought maybe there’d a problem because there would probably be a lot of referrals coming from the same IP all around the same few hours?

    Is that going to be a problem? I promise I’m not trying to cheat here, lol.

    K dub, no problem…in fact that’s GREAT!!! See that’s what I am talking about, just go to your league and get everyone there to sign up. Sooo easy to do any you get lot of refs and hopefully some of those people will get involved with the community. Awesome work man. :)

    What up Kettler!!! Thanks for posting dude. :) Nah I am not going to the grinder, I was contemplating it, but I lost some money at the casino and can’t afford it now hahaha. If you’re going, you should send updates to post on the site. I’ll be in contact with you soon.

    • kwisdumb  → Adam

      Awesome. I could only get one kid to do it this week as it was kind of a madhouse at the store, but I’m planning on rocking the laptop the next few weeks. The kid that did sign up said he was gonna come back, he looked at the site a bit and I think he wanted to copy one of your decklists, haha.

      Thanks for the clarification!
