Global PokÚdeX Plus Forums _ News and Updates _ Valentine's Day / 9 Year Anniversary

Posted by: Zerxer Feb 13 2018, 06:55 PM

Wow, 9 years tomorrow! One year shy of a decade!

I wanted to post this update thread the day before because starting with this week's currently active https://gpx.plus/poke_hunt, you will earn a Memory for form-changing Silvally if you place in 3rd or higher. The type of Memory you receive will be based off the Hunt's type.

Since this week the hunt is for an Ice-type, you have the chance to earn an Ice Memory! All you have to do is submit the best Ice PokÚmon you can find and place within the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place groups. You can collect an unlimited amount of Memories, as they are single-use form-change items, and they cannot be acquired outside of the PokÚ Hunt.

As a reminder, you will also earn a Cosplay Giftbox for placing if you have not yet collected them all. If you have collected them all, and you place in 1st, then you will earn an Arceus Shard for that week's Type (if you do not yet have the max number of Shards, or its Plate, for that Type).

Earning a Memory is on top of the Giftbox/Shard reward, so you could potentially get two prizes each week, plus the Prize Point reward.

The PokÚ Hunt always runs from Tuesday to Thursday night's reset, so I wanted to make sure you have all the heads up you need to try and enter this week's Ice hunt: https://gpx.plus/poke_hunt — https://gpx.plus/help/poke-hunt

Plus, in honor of the two holidays, we'll of course have the Triple Plus active all day tomorrow (the 14th)! We'll also have a login bonus, so be sure to log in at some point tomorrow!

Thank you so much to all of the staff, contributors, and members, past and present, that have allowed us to get where we are and last 9 years! I'm once again sorry that the site has been so stagnant for the past few years, but I hope you are still enjoying all that we've created. Should we last another year, I hope to do something more for our 10th anniversary.

Yaaaaaaaaay Silvally forms! This is the best present ever. Thanks for everything love.gif

Posted by: Esc Feb 13 2018, 07:07 PM

Sweet! Thanks Zerx and all the other staff! Looking forward to the login bonus for tomorrow happy.gif!

Happy 9 year anniversary grin.gif!

Edit: If we transform a Silvally to whatever type, can it be turned back into the original?

Posted by: Storskarfen Feb 13 2018, 07:11 PM

I'm super excited to be participating!

Posted by: Dark Feb 13 2018, 07:30 PM

Been on GPX since (almost) the beginning, and I haven't always been active but I love being able to pop in and out of the site when I have the chance. Thanks for keeping it going grin.gif

Posted by: SilverPT Feb 13 2018, 07:34 PM

Perfect timing. The semester has started but I don't have much work right now. At least this week is guaranteed!

Posted by: Wastelander Feb 13 2018, 07:38 PM

Niiiice. Can't wait for tomorrow! Kind of crazy to think how fast the years have flown by.

Posted by: Borg184 Feb 13 2018, 07:39 PM

My god has it been a while. Judging by my achievements, I joined around March 2010. I only picked this back up within the closing days of 2017. It's still a fun time killer, and I'm quite honestly surprised it is still around. While I can't expect GPXplus to be around forever, I figured I should probably at least drop a thanks for all of the effort put into making the site what it is, and keeping it around.

Do we have to logout and log back in for the bonus? Thanks for the event!

No, Silvally Memory will be a one-time form change, and not reversible. If you change a normal Silvally to Ice form, it will stay Ice and cannot be changed back nor changed to another form. Think that makes collecting them a bit more fun.

Nope, it'll be like previous login bonuses where you obtain an item the same way as random items "at your feet."

Posted by: Manchee Feb 13 2018, 08:25 PM

Ahhh it's so cool that next year will be a decade! I love having been part of gpx+ nearly since it came out. So cool to see it still around. You've all done a great job happy.gif

Sweet, gotta put in some work then happy.gif

Posted by: AregularFrankiefan Feb 13 2018, 08:37 PM

Wow, 9 years? I haven't been here for that long, and yet the time's still flown by. Can't believe the amount of work that's been put into this site.

Posted by: Synx Itax Feb 13 2018, 09:17 PM

Nice to finally have the Silvally forms, eh? Happy 9th Anniversary to GPXPlus!

Posted by: RicFule Feb 13 2018, 10:16 PM

Okay. It looks like I need to do this weekly hunt now. Hadn't been looking since I already had the Plate for this type.

Posted by: Asbel Lhant Feb 13 2018, 11:57 PM

Happy Anniversary GPX! Looks like I need to get cracking and hatch some eggs for Ice Types!

EDIT: Looks like I got a Rock Memory in my inventory, neat

Posted by: Veradana Feb 14 2018, 12:07 AM

I got an Ice Memory.

Posted by: Esc Feb 14 2018, 12:14 AM

Got a poison memory happy.gif. Poison plate when Arceus plates were introduced as well (coincidence :thinking: )

Used it already on my shiny one happy.gif!

Posted by: Zerxer Feb 14 2018, 12:36 AM

Shoot, I was supposed to set it to give out a Nine Years of Memories voucher which would give you a random Memory when used... but despite setting that voucher up, I set up the login bonus to be a random Memory. haha whoops sad.gif

I made sure the voucher wouldn't give an Ice Memory because of this week's Hunt but since it's giving a random Memory instead of the voucher, apologies to anyone that's gotten an Ice Memory already.

I'm going to switch the login item quickly (but if you already received a memory then you won't get the memory voucher -- it's the same prize in the end).

Happy Nine Years of Mistakes! :P

Posted by: Level-X Feb 14 2018, 01:34 AM

I will enjoy this being exclusive to the Poke Hunts, I been needing to get back into doing them. I like to fill my Pokedex so this gives me a lot of motivation. happy.gif I got the Bug Memory, a good start!

Also, noticed the triple+ but the Honey+ doesn't seem to be active with it.

Thanks for all the hard work over the years guys! <3

Posted by: Turtonator Feb 14 2018, 01:45 AM

Happy anni, gpx!

yup, no honey for me either. so sad :C

Posted by: Breech Loader Feb 14 2018, 06:08 AM

Better start hatching Silvally in preparation for getting Memories.

Posted by: koala bear Feb 14 2018, 09:58 AM

I wonder to know what's useful for Memory.
And thanks everyone!

Posted by: MorningStar Feb 14 2018, 10:26 AM

Happy anniversary!

No honey or hatching for me either :<

Posted by: Eren Feb 14 2018, 11:30 AM

Wow 9 years already, that's crazy...
Heh looks like I have an incentive to participate in Poke Hunts. :P Happy anniversary GPX+!

Posted by: Luneon Feb 14 2018, 11:45 AM

Awesome, I definitely didn't see this coming
I got a fighting memory from the voucher

The thought of GPX maybe not lasting another year makes me sad, so I hope it hits its 10th anniversary next year.

I'm gonna use the plier to work on some ongoing shiny hunts, hopefully I get lucky

Posted by: Moonlit Feb 14 2018, 11:45 AM

This is fantastic, and I'm not quite sure how I missed it yesterday. These are all amazing things that you've been doing, and it's crazy to think I just squeaked in to joining the site before the first anniversary... I joined 8 years ago as of a few days ago. That's crazy to think of!

Even though the site has been stagnant, it's been at a good place with many features to enjoy! Thank you for all of your efforts to the site!

Posted by: Lunar Eclipse Feb 14 2018, 11:57 AM

My heart stopped a little bit when I checked GPX and found "nine years of memories."

The visualization of that is incredibly sweet and I think it was a very nice touch for the Valentines and birthday celebration.

Thank you for everything you have contributed to this site and the community. We feel the love you have for this site, even if you can no longer commit the time to it like before. Hopefully you feel the love we have for this site as well in return!

Looking forward to my own nine year anniversary with GPX this April happy.gif

Posted by: PokeNOM NOM NOM Feb 14 2018, 12:10 PM

I've been here since June 2010.
That's eight years in June, it's crazy!

I love thinking back, because this site's just been here in various stages of my life.
It's always been something to turn to for relaxation in stressful situations and I appreciate that so much.
I love the fact that I'm able to contribute to this site, and hope to continue doing this for as long as possible.

Thank you site, for being here!

Posted by: Caprice Feb 14 2018, 01:06 PM

I guess I am also one of the oldies writing here, seems that on May 11 it is going to be my 9 years as a GPX+ member. happy.gif Well, not counting the three-ish years I have been absolutely inactive.

Either way, this website is and has been a relaxing, fun activity and I enjoy every minute spent here. I enjoy the surprise of hatching a shiny, the thrill of starting a new shiny hunt, the rush of site-wide events... The list could go on and on (excluding battling, I somehow cannot get through it grin.gif ).

A sincere thank you to the staff and everyone who participated in creating and maintaining this wonderful website. I really, really hope the 10th anniversary is going to happen, and I am sure I will still be here for it. Happy 9th anniversary GPX+!

Posted by: timeerkat Feb 14 2018, 01:56 PM

Wow, I never realized I joined so early on in the site! (April 26th is my 9-year anniversary.) Thank you to all of the mods, admin, and members for making my time here on the site so much fun!

Oh wow, the poke hunt prizes sound awesome! It'll be a great incentive to regularly participate.

Posted by: H1Z1 Feb 14 2018, 06:53 PM

Glad to see us hit the 9 year anni, I hit mine in August. Lots of us old farts floating around. Here's to another 365 days!

Posted by: Sportsfan666 Feb 14 2018, 07:07 PM

I hit my 9th year anniversary in April. Hard to believe the site has been around that long, honestly. Maybe I'll finish my dex sometime in the next 9 years. tongue.gif

Posted by: Zerxer Feb 14 2018, 07:59 PM

It'll be my 11-year anniversary here come June! Due to the original GTSPlus having launched in 2007. wink.gif

I'm glad you are all happy with the Memories!

Posted by: Mr Spaz Feb 14 2018, 09:31 PM

I'm happy with these Memories, but my God, it's gonna take forever to get a enough Shiny Type Null for them.

Posted by: Sofia Feb 19 2018, 10:32 PM

Happy Anniversary, Sofia!

On this day, 9 year(s) ago, you registered on GTSPlus' forums!


^ Just got that today. Man, I really started pretty early in this site's lifetime

Posted by: Luneon Feb 20 2018, 01:02 PM

I'll hit my 9th anniversary on here in about 4 months.
Fun fact I saw something about GPX before, but I wanted to wait until it launched before signing up
Me being me, I forgot about about it until months after then still signed up.
In hindsight I'm both glad and not that I signed up after launch.
I didn't have to go through the first crashes, but I also missed out on community things that I would have probably enjoyed.

Posted by: Blitzkrieg Mar 7 2018, 09:58 AM

Ahhh! I'm so happy to still be a part of this wonderful community and website. While I know GPX+ won't be around forever, the years it's brought me of just overall idle enjoyment have brought so many positives. Happy (although belated) anniversary GPX. <3

Posted by: TQQ May 25 2018, 09:32 AM

I missed the event but wanted to add to this thread. I joined gtsplus before gpx+ was even in beta and made some really great friends, some that I still talk to and keep track of a bit over a decade later. It was amazing to watch the site grow the way it did, it was really unique to this little subsection of the internet. I even remember when eggs first bstarted showing up in the mods signatures and most of the normies on the forum like me had no idea wtf was going on at first haha.

I'm really glad to see it's still around in some fashion, and I make a visit at least monthly with some sporadic days full of activity here and there and I probably will until the site goes away. Thanks for the memories, gpx+ crew!

Posted by: DJ Majja Kool May 25 2018, 12:41 PM

I also wasn't here when this thread was made, but wanted to make a sentimental post too.

I joined GTS/GPX in May 2009. Elsewhere online, I saw people with eggs in their signatures, and that's how I discovered this place. I've had fluctuating activity throughout the years. Sometimes I was super active every day for a long period of time, and sometimes I got burned out and was dormant for weeks or months, popping in occasionally to see what's new and how everyone is doing.

There's a lot to do on GPX. I've been here for 9 years and still haven't filled out the Pokedex, collected all the trinkets, or gotten all the achievements (although a few of them are beyond the time and/or energy I'm willing to commit to). I also love how friendly and easygoing the community is. Unless I missed it due to being inactive, there's pretty much no drama here at all. There used to be some in earlier times, but it was still much less than many other places on the Internet.

The site's changed a lot over the years, and I think it's always been for the better. Interacting is a lot faster and more convenient than it was back when I joined. Before the current layout that lets you open hundreds of eggs and Pokemon instantly, and before that when people made mass clicking guides, I used to open one egg/Pokemon at a time from a party and interact with it.

I know that the GTS forum predates GPX by at least two years (from what I've seen, GTS+ was made in 2007?). I don't really know much about those early days before GPX, and maybe there are some interesting stories that'll never get told. In most communities I've been in, I seem to join at least a generation after a major change takes place and the site is already a few years rich with history, some of which can be found by searching or is recounted by the veterans, and perhaps some that's been removed after an update to the site, never to be brought up again. All I really know is that if I'm remembering right GTS is/was affiliated with a Fire Emblem site and many of the early users were members of that site as well.

I've definitely had some fun times here, even if I'm rarely on nowadays. I don't know if it'll be anytime soon, but maybe one day I'll be active again. I hope this place continues to last a long time.
