I have an extra Mime Jr. lying around, so whoever posts first can take it. As long as you're a newbie or have under ten Pokémon, that is.

... You already offered $11 for it earlier (I'm assuming Meursault just didn't notice)

If my first offer isn't accepted isn't it natural to change it to something they've indicated they're okay with?

But I don't think they were trying to turn down your first offer, I think they just didn't notice. Also: you're the richest trainer in the game. You can afford $11.

I was halfway trolling so I'll pay $11 for the houndour, but I don't think it's appropriate for a representative of the league administration to tell a player what's an appropriate way to spend their money.

... For context, I called res a "rules lawyer" last night and kicked them out of #tcod when they got smug about it.

I guess I'll take care of all that later? Jesus Christ, dude.

Zhorken, no one leaves over an isolated incident, and besides, res is already quitting. At this point it's pretty off to give obviously biased context to make yourself look like the innocent good guy.

Zhorken probably could have handled this better, but I do agree that it is rather in poor spirit of the game to try and shaft somebody out of $6 (half-trolling or not). We are all trying to have a good time here.

In any case, it's a disappointment that res is leaving but I don't think it's appropriate to have that conversation here. In future I'd appreciate it if everyone didn't jump into the thread to defend themselves or make comments about it; it just creates more drama and it gets the thread needlessly off-topic. Don't forget that ASB part of the forum and is still under forum rules. I'd also like to remind everyone that ASB is a game, and while we do all get excited and tense about games it's important to keep a level head and be civil to one another.

Anyway, back on topic:

Since I can't give this via the db yet, please send this to Music Dragon.

I've moved most of res's stuff. Croutons Uranium, Ghost of Nini, and Mike: whoever you are, feel free to speak up and claim your Pokémon. I left pathos's lot alone, as well as the bugs res tried to give Coloursfall and moon-panther, but they're all yours if you want them.
