Hello, everyone! How're you doing? It's, again, time for another Lavender Town update. This time, I bring you creepypastas, a theory, better integration between the website and the forums and other fixes and cool stuff. I apologize for the big leap of time between last update and this, but since summer is near, I should have more free time. I'll mostly update on weekends these following two months, though. So, let's start with the updates!
I suppose I'll start with one of the most noticeable change: there is now a login/registered user panel in the frontpage, on the right side, where you can log into the forums and have a quick glance on your Private Message amount, as well as other interesting links. It's still very basic in function, consider it as the 0.1 version, but it's a nice addon I hope will attract more potential users to the forums. Before this change, we did a full backup of the website, forums and databases, to make sure nothing goes wrong. The panel replaces the previous forum ad.
There are two polls I have to report here. First, there's a new poll being held in the forums regarding a possible Pokémon Online tournament in the near future (in summer). If you're interested, please read these two threads in the forums: this and this; and express your opinion both as votes and as posts. The other thing is the results of the previous website poll (#1), which are as follow:
As you can see, an exact 50% of the users who voted want more than 20 creepypastas per update (something you'll get today, btw. Keep reading.) The second option was 10 creepypastsa, then 15 and last 20. Now, we'll try to bring between 10 and 20 creepypastas per update, except on special occassions, like today. Note that there's already a newpoll on the sidebar: vote and express yourself!
Besides from that, we did other minor fixes around the website, here and there, optimizing it. Particularly, and thanks to Prof. Uniful from the forums who reported the issue, we fixed the links to two creepypastsa, which were previously broken:"A Kangashkan that never was" and "Banette's Grudge". Go check them asap if you couldn't read them before!
Going back to the forums, we did a whole forum upgrade to fix several vulnerabilities and security issues. It is now safer, and hopefully smoother, than before. Along with it, there is a big amount of new posts and threads, along with bumped content, to incentivate posting. In other note, though, and due to today's updates, there are two minor known issues: 1) You can't log out from the forums by clicking the respective links. Until we find a fix, hopefully soon, you have to delete the cookies manually should you ever need to log out. 2) The 404 error page just goes back to the website index, possibly a fault in the news script. We're investigating.
Something I can't stress out enough is that we're looking for ideas and feedback about both the website and the forums. If you have any ideas, comments, suggestions, or just something you want to tell us, feel free to use the e-mail, forum private messages, or forum posts to do so. For example, one of the suggestions we got a few weeks ago was the addition of a gallery to the website, and today we announce that we are working on a Gallery for Pokémon and general pictures, both creepy and not. More information will be published soon, since it's still on the ways.
And last but not least, we have 30 new creepypastas and 1 homemade theory, made by a forum user and adapted by me, that are already available on the archives. I hope you enjoy them all, since they take on various topics regarding the Pokémon fandom. This is the list of new content:
- Bounce, bounce, thump
- Chronicles of the Chamber
- Cyrus - Trainer POV
- Deletion and Revival
- Diary of a Bug
- Fae is watching
- Fearow is hungry
- Forgotten bronze

And that's it, for now. Remember to support us, bring your friends, and join and post in the forums! The only thing they're missing is you. Unless you've already registered. Anyway, have a good night and a great, spooky week.
