  1. What? Season II Trailer of RM's? Yaaaas~

    Sorry~ Yes, Nominations are open. You can put your nominations in this post or you can PM me your nominations on the forums or on Discord.
  2. Meet the vets!

    General Info: Known as: Miss Kitty Age: 24 years old Gender: Female Birthday: November Location: Colorado Height: At least 5 feet, but no taller than 6 feet Hair Color: Bleh Brown Eye Color: Bleh Brown Lives with: El Husband Pets: A German Shepherd and a husky, and two bratty cats Relationship status: Married Favourite Food: The rare deep fried sushi roll Favourite Drink: Arizona Raspberry Tea Favourite Color: Grey Favourite kind of Music: Anything good Favourite Band: Phantogram Favourite Album: N/A Favourite Song: The Wavves - Nine is God Favourite Game: Sims 4 Favourite Genre of Game: Games like Elder Scrolls/Fallout Favourite Hobbies: Building houses in Sims 4 (I am simple to entertain) Favourite Movies: I will always be happy to watch Howl's Moving Castle Favourite Shows: It's a tie between Black Butler and Shameless Community questions: So, who are you?: I am Kitty. Formally known as Mrs. Kitty, but popularly known as Miss Kitty. I am simple. Anything you're responsible for? Hm... I've recently been responsible with making Rebornian Mentions (season II coming soon!!!). Other than that, I've just been responsible for all the cats running amok in Showdown and keeping Reborn catified for it's entire lifetime. If you had to choose one of your posts as your way to introduce yourself, which would it be? Do we really want to see how crazy I was back in like, 2009 or whenever we came to this forum host? No. No we don't. What can I talk to you about? I'm pretty chill to talk about whatever. I'm generally really good for being a supportive shoulder when one needs it. How did you find Reborn? I don't exactly remember how I came across Reborn. I think Ame invited me back in like, 2008-2009, when it was Poke-Place, when we met in a separate gaming forum. Closing statements? Well.. I've been around for a very, very long time. It really doesn't show half of the time, but I've a lot of experience here in the community and know the ropes pretty okay (at least in the chatrooms, I haven't been very active with the forums for years, but it's about to change with RM's coming back). But I'm really super chill, again, even if it doesn't seem that way, so it's cool to chat with me. Mao.
  3. Rebornian Mentions Season II Trailer -queue cinematic theme with the dramatic build up of music- In a world, the one that we all live on... -flashing scenes of a shadowy figure in a dark room walking closer to a computer- Lives a hero... -intense scene of a keyboard being furiously typed on- Who is on a mission. -music halts and shows a picture of a cat- -music intensely continues while showing the rest of the awesome trailer involving a computer, lots of sitting, and a cat- Coming... This fall... I hope you all liked that trailer! I worked very hard on putting it together~ So let's get to it. RM's Season II this fall! My apologies on it abruptly ending earlier this spring without warning, there was a lot of things I had to take care of, including myself. With the busiest of seasons coming to a close and we're all going back to school, or work, RM's is returning with another spectacular season!!! Whoo~ But we still have a little bit of time before the first RM of the season comes out. So with this opportunity, I am taking it to do a little bit of a spring cleaning on my RM nominations list as well as my CCB folder for how I handle RM's. It is a mess. Especially since I implemented a new segment to it so late in the first season. So listen up~ I am redoing the Nominations list! What this means for those who have nominated someone: You will want to nominate again, this time following the procedure below. You may nominate more than one person at a time provided the procedure is followed. Procedure for nominating someone: 1. Name (and possible aliases on Showdown/Discord/Forums (it makes my life easier when I search)) 2. You may ask up to two questions that you may or may not have known about your nominee (it MUST adhere to the rules) Example (and this is my personal nomination): Sardines (Sardines/Papa Fish - Discord) How did you get so good at dealing with viruses/malware stuff on computers? (since you've helped me so much with mine) Again, as in season 1, the rules remain the same: 1. You cannot ask inappropriate questions. 2. If the nominee feels uncomfortable answering a question, it will not be answered. The main purpose of this post is to get an updated, fresh list that includes the implemented segment from the last part of season 1. So please list your nominations below and when RM's resume in the fall, you may also resume nominations below each post. Also, have any ideas that could make RM's better? Toss the comment below~ I'm all ears. A huge thank you to everyone who's participated (past, present, or future) to Cat Chat Blog's Rebornian Mentions! Season 2's gonna kick ass! Get hyped~
  4. Chat Chat Blogs Presents: Rebornian Mentions: Murdoc This week’s RM seems to be following a pattern! Today, we shine a super bright light at another one of the authy team: Murdoc (Nominated by Commander)! Murdoc comes to us all the way from the Mid-Western U.S., specifically Minnesota. Tempest has a neighbor! It seems Minnesota isn’t as quiet as we assumed. In his spare time, some hobbies Murdoc’s taken up are spending time in another forum called Bay12, gaming, and collecting various figures-- so far most are from Fate and Touhou. Murdoc, working the camera. Or would the camera be working for him? Life in Reborn Murdoc joined with us back in 2013. He discovered us through a Pokemon Type quiz that was being passed around at that time. “I got lots of different types across multiple attempts. (I) usually got water or fighting with something else.” But it wasn’t the quiz that tempted Murdoc to stick around. It was also the game, and if you know Murdoc well, the RP (role-play, collaborative storytelling) section. It didn’t take long before Murdoc was promoted to authyhood. Two years ago, he was offered to become a moderator for the chat servers. “My job is pretty simple, just managing the RP forum alongside Hukuna, along with helping out with policy decisions and whatnot.” It’s within the RP section of the forums where Murdoc spends most of his time. Many of the RP’s he takes part of tend to deal with the fantasy/action genres and he does his best to make his characters as diverse as possible. One of Murdoc’s biggest successes here with Reborn is an RP that he’s starting up in the near future. It’s called Trespassers, which takes a huge variety of universes and mashes them together. "But Murdoc," you may say, "what if I don’t have experience or can’t make a decent character?” That’s okay! The RP community of Reborn can help on those fronts. Murdoc also says, “expies are a good place to start. Having a personality to model gives you a decent starting point.” And that’s just one of the many tips Murdoc can and will offer. But wait, there’s more! Sign-ups are still current for Trespassers! One of Murdoc’s favorite moment comes from a game of League a few weeks ago. “I was playing League with Zetaark and screaming about it the whole time. Which isn’t abnormal, except this time he was dominating the entire enemy team with a memetic character and then I stole his pentakill.” Zetaark did not respond well to this. There was such rage, and the entire time, I assume, Murdoc had his mic muted so he could roll around the room laughing. Zetaark is one of Murdoc’s favorite Rebornians though, including Lexi, Hukuna, and Kyoyo. “Outside of that, Zumi is pretty great and I appreciate how much work Dan puts into the site and dealing with people, including myself.” While Murdoc does have a crush, it is not that of Rebornian kind. Even though the relationship is still pretty fresh, it’s nice to see Rebornians finding love! CCB wishes you two the best of luck~ Reborn the Game While Murdoc didn’t finish the game up to the current episode, he did like what he played. He felt it was a bit slow at times, presumably through the difficult leveling, but it was otherwise fairly good. One of the challenging moments Murdoc encountered during his playthrough was beating Florinia. But his favorite moment? “Beating up Fern of course.” I really need to get good at leveling so that I can see why no one likes Fern. Surely, he’s just misunderstood. The Big Picture Murdoc is a peaceful, friendly resident of Reborn who brings great qualities to the community. For the moment, he’s content with studying Physics in school and working his part-time campus job. However, he’s got some goals in mind for the future. Right now, his next goal for Reborn is to keep growing the RP community, and also to do his best to ensure inclusion for everyone. He plans to start a new RP for members who have little to no experience to help guide them in exploring their interests within the RP world. We can’t wait to see what Murdoc does next! If you see Murdoc out and about, be sure to say hi through intense battle scenes! "Hello!" From Murdoc, to Reborn: “-insert some sort of obligatory plug for checking out the RP forum- Also, a reminder: I’m always around to talk about whatever.” A big thank you to Murdoc for the interview! If you have a nominee & question in mind, comment below or give a shout-out in chat! All images do not belong to me. Youtube video belongs to Hyun. RM Nomination Questions We’re back again with some nomination questions! This seems to be gaining some traction, so we’ll give it a go again! Same rules still apply: no rule-break questions, no uncomfy questions. Murdoc was nominated by Commander, and Commander asked: Commander: “Of all the RP characters you created, which one is your least favorite and why?” Murdoc: “Probably Sarcus (from Aftermath). He had all the symptoms of a first-time RP character. Excessively edgy, Absol partner, obligatory mental illness, overly tragic backstory, and underneath that was basically a self-insert.”
  5. Cat Chat Blogs Presents: Rebornian Mentions: Arkhi This week, we take an adventure into the life of Arkhi, our resident global mod in both the forums and servers. He was nominated by Felix/Dobby, Bibs, and Mockingbird. Arkhi resides in the Sonoma area of California-- where he (presumably) spends much of his time preparing for the big ‘Quake. While he’s not preparing for the big 'Quake and chillin’ with Reborn, Arkhi enjoys the natural beauty of Cali’s countryside such as hiking through the Redwood Forest, spending a day at the beach, journeying through the deserts, and skiing up in the mountains. Other hobbies also include playing the flute and listening to a wide variety of music. Almost anything can be made into a scarf. Anything. Life in Reborn “I wish I had an amazing story (of finding Reborn), like finding the Holy Grail,” Arkhi continues, “I discovered Reborn through Shofu’s playthrough back when I (tried) my hand at competitive mons.” Even though competitive playing didn’t work out for Arkhi, he still stuck around. “I enjoy the sense of community and the casual nature.” He feels that his role as an auth doesn’t get in the way of randomly logging in at any point and chatting with anyone about anything. "No one should see my authy uniform under this! hue hue" About two years into Arkhi’s stay with the community, in 2015 he was offered the opportunity to help others through being a global mod authy. Hunter was stepping down from authy, when many members had nominated him (Arkhi) to take Hunter’s place, which Arkhi had accepted. Presently, Arkhi’s duties with the community mostly deals with a lot of forum stuff, but he also takes care of the Song of the Day (SotD) stuff and being an “approachable dude.” One of Arkhi’s favorite moments with Reborn happened fairly recently. Although Arkhi wasn’t involved, he enjoyed being present for this conversation between Dan and Kyoyo. In a nutshell, “Kyoyo was getting on Dan for not doing enough squats to keep his rear looking great.” I inquired further about Kyoyo’s concern for Dan’s rear. “I imagine Kyoyo is captain of more than just the server, I can see him as admiral of fitness and dapper attire." Arkhi also commented Ame's role in this situation, "Ame’s job typically falls between forgetting things, deleting things, and forgetting she’s deleted things. … As I see it, anyway.” So Ame forgot to tell Dan to do squats, so Kyoyo had to step in. And everything. Now what was I forgetting again? Another favorite moment comes from a Queen’s Game during the 2014 Winter Party. Those Arkhi recalls being present within the Skype call was Rose, Jericho, and Kaito. I attempted to inquire more details, but I was given a big red stop sign. “Unfortunately (for me, Kitty), Queen’s Game requires the signing of an oath that which has taken place must forever remain unspoken.” But he did say that “things happened that made… the call go ballistic.” I suggested that we could have done the article anonymous, that CCB will just throw a lightly shaded silhouette over Arkhi’s name and picture. “No can do, I’m afraid.” Sigh. Alright, alright. But no one would have ever guessed who it really was underneath the silhouette. Arkhi’s favorite Rebornian is unfortunately no longer active with us, but Arkhi will still mention him anyways. His name was Telos, and in 2014, they became pretty good friends. Arkhi also considers his friendship with Telos to be one of his biggest successes with Reborn. “He and I have grown close, the trust between us of which neither has felt towards others before.” Even though Telos is near and dear to Arkhi, he also really enjoys his friendships with Vinny, Jeri, Cowtao, Shia, and Ikaru, among many others. While Arkhi does not have a Rebornian crush, he does enjoy his time being single for the time being. Reborn the Game When it comes to the game, Arkhi considers it his favorite fangame of all time. “I enjoy the difficulty, since it keeps me thinking relevant thoughts for battling other trainers. Can’t catch a break in that game, and I enjoy that.” Regarding his favorite moment within the game, he thought that the defense of Fiore Mansion was awesome. “It was very difficult, which made it all the more my favorite moment.” While on his journey through Reborn, he thought it was a big challenge to find his favorite pokemon, Zangoose, for his team. Otherwise, beating Florinia in EP 10 was the biggest challenge for him. Arkhi Overall All in all, Arkhi’s a really awesome person for the community. His time and dedication towards Reborn stands out, which makes him a valuable friend and ally for us all. As for Arkhi, there’s no stopping him in his future goals for Reborn. “I’d really like to give back to the community what it’s given me,” he says, detailing how he’d like to see more harmony and help others make strong connections with each other such as his and Telos’s friendship. “I want that for everyone in Reborn.” If you see Arkhi around, feel free to say hi to this approachable dude! From Arkhi, to Reborn: “Thanks, everyone. I appreciate the people for making the community (what it is today).” Rebornian Mentions: Arkhi Answers Questions This week, we’re shaking things up here at CCB! We’re currently experimenting with a new addition to RM nominations. This is where those who nominate someone can ask a question about the nominee that they’d like answers to. For example, Arkhi was nominated by Felix, Bibs, and Mockingbird. Each asked a question towards Arkhi that normally wouldn’t be mentioned or discussed in a regular RM interview. If you have a question to your nominee, add them to the comment section below or in a shout-out, as per usual.* If possible, we want to hear feedback about this experimental addition from you all. Should we keep it? Should we change it? What do you think? *We here at CCB only accept good, legitimate questions (see below questions for ideas/examples). Bad questions (rule-breaking questions) and questions the nominee is not comfortable answering will not be accepted. Bibs asked: “Where does your fascination with AtokNiiro stem from?” "He asked the question! I'm glad." - Arkhi “I just really, really, really enjoy his art style. Couple that with the fact he’s a hardcore math nerd and also a memelord and he’s just an extremely cool guy. In several areas not pertaining to memes, I aspire to be like him. Oh, I also enjoy that AtokNiiro has such a quirk for drawing that so much of his work is perfect for using as reactions.” Mokingbird asked: “Where did your affection of scarves from from?” "AtokNiiro draws a nice scarf." - Arkhi “... Huh. I’ve never thought about that. I enjoy that scarves are warm, comfy, and pleasant to wear. It’s just a natural affinity for the nice qualities of scarves. I have nothing bad to say about them, only the climate of California for usually being too warm to wear them. And also, AtokNiiro draws a nice scarf.” Felix/Dobby asked: “Do you prefer practical rationality over impractical idealism in your approach to life?” “Practical rationality. I value truth and realism. For as much as I really do want to promote idealism and use that optimism to push others (and myself), I just can’t bring myself to override truth, especially when that coincides with practicality. I’m really bad at lying because I always want to speak the truth.” A big thank you to Arkhi for the interview! If you have someone you’d like to nominate, comment below or send a shout-out in chat!

  6. Cat Chat Blogs Presents: Rebornian Mentions: Ama Somewhere in one of the very pretty buildings of northern West Germany sits a birb by the name of Ama! Ama was nominated by Nagisa and also goes by the nickname Meteor Admin ZEL. They’ve been with us for about two years now, and in their spare time, they enjoy writing and reading, doing internet things, birb things, playing video games, and going to concerts and festivals. Ama is also working towards getting a bachelor’s degree in Education with a goal of teaching English and Geography. Go Ama! An accurate portrait and description of Ama Life in Reborn Ama was introduced to Reborn through an ex who really enjoyed playing Reborn, the game. “At first I wasn’t interested,” Ama continues, “because the way they (their ex) talked about the game made it sound like it was trying too hard with shock value instead of having a good story.” Their ex reached a point where they couldn’t win a battle, so Ama stepped in and fought the battle for them Ama actually started their own save in this situation. “Needless to say, I soon discovered that I really liked the game, but by the time I got interested in it, my partner (wasn’t).” Because Ama didn’t have anyone to talk to about it, they soon turned to the community to chat about it. Which brings us to present day. Two of Ama’s favorite moments in Reborn include the Gator Wars as well as the little stories and conversations the server occasionally has with them. Gator Wars took up one of the favorite moments for Ama because Arkhi was on the phone during the storytelling. “There were a ton of typos and autocorrect failures, giving us gems like ‘Tebron,’ ‘Crab Folk,’ ‘l’ewd coast,’ and ‘roast gaot.’ Sides went into orbit that day.” Arkhi, you should know what’s coming during your interview. Just sayin’. Another favorite moment Ama enjoys thinking back on is when Ice was asking the server questions about characters. “Things like what it’d be like if Sirius got his own cooking show, or what’d happen if you lock Terra and Blake in a room together. I think that one was memorable because it’s the earliest conversation I can remember having on (public) chat with Ice and Lost.” Ama since day 1. Other than summoning Lost on short notice by the mention of her name, Ama spends their time chatting with their favorite peoples: Lost, Ice, Bibs, Ody, Dan, Wendel, Viri… -takes short breath- … Inno, DW, Edge, Jacze, Huk, Spine, Int -- As well as forum members Matry and Jasmi. They also love being around their Rebornian crush, Ice. CCB’s got the inside deets here: Love is Love, is Love is, Love “When I was new to the server, people were talking about the Reborn League, and Ika was storytelling, trying to get Ice to join.” After Ikaru pointed out that Ice was part of the group that created Team Meteor and its characters, Ama was pretty excited about that and had mentioned that ZEL is their favorites. Ice PM’d Ama with a couple of links that he thought Ama would find interesting, like the sprites that Ame made for Eve and Lumi. “At first, I felt nervous talking to him because I was sure I’d annoy him and that I’d be boring. But he kept talking to me.” Ice messaged Ama again the next night. Before they knew it, Ama and Ice were talking about a lot of different things. It didn’t take too long before these two decided to give dating a go. “I couldn’t be happier with him, he’s amazing <3” - Ama D'awwwhhhh! This happy couple’s face-to-face meetup is getting closer, too! Ama plans to meet with Ice and his family towards late summer. “I’m really looking forward to it!” Awwh, Reborn! This is so wonderful and cute and awesome! We here at CCB wish ya’ll the best of luck~ Reborn, The Game Within the game, Ama’s favorite moments come from everything surrounding Tanzan Meteor Base and also the scenes with PULSE Abra. “I’ll never get over Abra sassing Zero,” Ama says. “It brought tears to my eyes from laughing.” However, when it comes to ZEL, it’s a different story. “Anything involving ZEL is enough to make me happy… Or enough to make me cry,” Ama says as I picture them curling up into a ball as they refer to episode 16. Some of Ama’s biggest challenges with the game was making it through the Gym Leader Florinia and Radomus’ gym puzzle. Through their first gameplay, Florinia gave Ama the most trouble. “I wasn’t prepared for the game’s difficulty level.” These days, the only challenge Ama deals with in the game is facing off against Shade. Overall, Ama really loves the game and enjoys playing it on a regular basis. Ama Overall Ama is a really awesome person to the community, and great to get to know. Through their journey in Reborn, their biggest success comes from finding an amazing partner and gaining great friends. Their next big goal with Reborn is meeting up with Ice, and during that time, Ama hopes to meet Dan and several other Rebornians along the Eastern Coast of the U.S. “I’m really looking forward to the vacation,” Ama exclaims. If you see Ama around, be sure to chirp at them or throw some birbs their way! “I want everyone to know that birds are the perfect lifeforms.” - Ama, 2017 A big thank you to Ama for the interview! If you have a nomination in mind, comment below or send a shout-out in chat! All images do not belong to me.
  7. Cat Chat Blogs Presents: Rebornian Mentions: Wendel In a land, far, far away, but not that far in the Achterhoek region of the Netherlands, lives a duck we all know and love -- Wendel. Wendel was nominated by Nagisa, and has been in Reborn since March of 2013. Some other well known aliases Wendel goes by is Wenduck, Wendalf Garadex, and Llama Farmer. In his spare time, Wendel enjoys gaming, sleeping, and reading. Dat feline. Life in Reborn Wendel found Reborn by accident back when the chat was on Pokemon Online. “A few days after my dad’s death, I was scrolling over the internet on some random stuff and found PO (without meaning to). I looked for the servers that didn’t have too many people, but not too many. Reborn was the second largest server on PO (at the time).” The server that was the largest server was Main, and that generally had over 500 people at any given time. It was a nightmare to try and engage in PO’s main server with excessive amounts of people talking at the same time, spam, and even authy as Wendel puts it. When it comes to Wendel’s favorite moments with Reborn, he pondered, “does every time I disappoint Bibs count?” A deeper explanation was needed. “(I disappoint Bibs) by just existing most of the time. I have an aura around me that immediately disappoints Bibs. Maybe it could be that I have my own religion as well.” Wendel calls it Wendelism. The religion is about “the Almighty God of Block Wendel.” The word of Wendelism spread throughout Reborn and has even picked up loyal, devout followers-- DW and Pyrro. They even have holy books, too.“It was basically me playing Civilization V and you (can) create your own religion and as such, I named it Wendelism because I have no imagination with names.” It’s okay Wendel, Danism’s not a very creative name either. Which brings us to some fitin’ werds about Danism, “That isn’t a religion, it’s just a small cult. They don’t even have holy books. I have five books and what do they have? Three letters in common.” And thus began the 300 year-long Rebornian religious war. At any rate, Bibs is disappointed in Wendel over his own religion. Each time Wendel brings it up, it’s like Bibs goes into shock. It probably doesn’t help that Wendel claims Bibs the father of his child; that disappoints Bibs, too. With all these events Wendel and Bibs have gone through, it’s no surprise that Bibs one of Wendel’s favorite Rebornians. While Wendel doesn’t have any Rebornian crushes, and is single, he does note that one of his biggest successes in Reborn comes from the religion he’s created and the daughter that him and Bibs have. Wendel will never let Bibs forget, nor let him get rid of Wendel. You better get used to it, Bibs. Probably what Bibs feels deep inside. Reborn the Game Wendel’s played Reborn, but not a whole lot of it. “I got to Shade,” Wendel confesses. Life tended to get in the way of Wendel playing the game, and also the difficulty. “Because of the difficulty, (it) kinda turned me off to it because I just wanted to play it for the story.” For now, Wendel has no strong urges to return to the game, but it is there for when he’s interested. Despite the fact Wendel didn’t get far, his favorite moment is beating Fern. Always with the Fern. Wendel Overall Wendel’s a really awesome person to get to know and a great member to the community. Currently, Wendel has not set out some solid goals so he’s just kind of going with the flow. If you see Wendel out and about, be sure to throw ducks at him! Wendel wanted to share a sermon with Reborn: “Fellow Rebornians, on this day we stand on the most important decision of our short lives. We must not give into the fear mongering of Danism. We must not spam the entire chat with something nobody cares about. We must stand united and embrace the love of Wendelism, for without Wendelism, we would all just be ‘ism’s’.” A big thank you to Wendel for the interview. If you have a nomination in mind, message below or give a shout-out in chat. All images do not belong to me.
  8. Favourite Book Series

    My favorite book series is Warrior Cats by Erin Hunter. They're simple reads, but I really love the story. Right now, Erin's got three sets for Warrior Cats. Each series revolves around the four wild cat clans and their struggles to survive. In the first set, the clans face an antagonist cat who's trying to take over/destroy all clans because the cat wasn't getting things his way. The second set is about the four clans having to leave their forest due to human destruction of it. 1-2 cats of each clan travel together to find the new home and finds trouble along the way. It follows after the first set with a new generation of cats. I haven't been able to finish the third set yet, but it's about after what happened in the second set, following a new generation of cats. The series has a lot of spiritual influences due to StarClan, the deceased cats of the four clans that help guide the living cats through prophecies. http://www.warriorcats.com/ <--- if ya'll are interested in it. o: Edit: Holy wowzer smokes. I went to see what else the author is doing for Warrior Cats and it turns out there's like, 6-7 sets now. >.< I need to buy them all. lol
  9. People of Wal-mart

    lol Of course wally world attracts the weird people. xD Have you ever seen this site before? lol It's horrible, but it pretty much sums up what Walmart is like. Sorry you had crummy customers though. :c
  10. Hey, everyone! Thanks for tuning into another edition of Rebornian Mentions! It’s been such a huge hit lately, that I’ve actually been overwhelmed with all the nominations of different members in our community. To help alleviate some of this, I’ve implemented a random list that picks who will be next for me. However, this will not mean that I won’t be doing nominations anymore. By all means, keep nominating! Those who are nominated will go into a nomination list to be picked by random. To keep things fair, I’ve also implemented plenty of other members into the list as well, so everyone has a chance to get in on some of this delicious action even if they haven’t been nominated yet. Ya’ll can be nominated by me :3 P.S. I know most of you were aware, but my antivirus freaked out on me while deflecting an actual virus attack, so I didn’t touch my computer for the last week out of fear, but there was nothing to be scared about tho. This was the reasoning for the delay for this week’s RM. Hopefully this won’t happen again, but my apologies for making you all wait for so long. Cat Chat Blogs Presents: Rebornian Mentions: Bibs/Toon Ojama This week, Rebornian Mentions turns to Bibs who won the randomized lottery this week. Bibs was nominated by Felix, Arkhi, and Azeria. Somewhere in the northern Dutch area of Europe lives a wild Bibarel. This Belgian Bibarel gets by in life by doing some journalism as a profession and has a healthy diet consisting of Belgian fries and waffles. In his spare time, he likes to do a bit of gaming, mostly playing Pokemon and Fire Emblem, non-competitive tennis, and meme-ing. An accurate picture of Bibs. Who is Bibs? Bibs has an interesting back story on how he even discovered Reborn. “(On) a bored Saturday, (I) was scrolling through the Google Play store, searching for ‘Pokemon’ and came across the Pokemon Online app, (and) downloaded it.” It was only by chance that Bibs had found Reborn’s server specifically. “I clicked on a server that didn’t have too many people, but also not too few people in it.” Bibs made himself comfortable in the chat server for a few months before finally deciding to make a profile on Reborn’s forums back in mid-2014. Almost everything about Bibs’s life revolves around meme-ing. His favorite meme of all time so far is the ‘We Are Number One’ meme from the popular kid’s show LazyTown. The meme that came from the popular video came about because one of the actors, Robbie Rotten, was diagnosed with cancer. Someone had started a GoFundMe for Robbie to help him through his cancer treatment, and through that, people started sharing mashups of the song ‘We Are Number One.’ All the positive support for this guy helped him through his illness. “The reason I meme so much is because I see memes as something positive and light-hearted in life.” Robbie being a prime example of how memes can help people in difficult times. Some other memes that Bibs have introduced to our community include ‘What Happened to Dorcas’ and ‘guardian of nature’ from a horrible pokemon romhack. Bibbles begs us not to play it. “For the love of God, don’t.” Life in Reborn The name’s Dorcas. Dorcas Dorcas. Life in Reborn One of Bibs’s favorite moment in Reborn was back when Arkhi told the story of the Great Gator War. “Gater Wars were basically Reborn vs Hostgator, but Arkhi would throw in some exaggerated/untrue parts and purposefully misspelled a lot.” Bib’s laughed so hard he died. He thought it was such a beautifully crafted story, that it made it to his number 1 favorable moment. Other favorites include the times when he hosted Hunger Games. He wants to host it more often, but just hasn’t been feeling it lately. But “I both curse and bless Zumi for introducing me to this” he says, probably shaking one fist violently while the other hand is throwing Holy Water everywhere. If Bibs could go anywhere on the Rebornian timeline, he would enjoy going back to his first two weeks on the server. “I met this person named Shiney. We often joked around on the server, and at some point, eating cookies had become a running gag for us.” Thus, the clantag [COOKIE] was born, and several other members of the community got in on the joke. “I didn’t think the (joke) would last long, but six months later, people were still in the server with the clantag.” Alas, Bibs is the sole survivor of the Cookie clan today. Over time, members of the Cookie clan left, leaving Bibs to carry on the legacy. An accomplishment Bibs has achieved with Reborn include “realizing having friends is not something useless in life, and realizing people can like me the way I am. Most importantly, the accomplishment of maturing and find a reason to live for.” Bibs continues, “so, thanks, Reborn, for helping me through the hell that was high school.” I can agree, Bibs. Reborn, never change to impress others. Only change if you know it benefits you and you only! Bibs loves Reborn because he feels he can be himself without reprimand. “I love being around because I know a good part of the (community) here likes me being around. A feeling I reciprocate. (Reborn) is the closest thing to a place I can call home and overall, the place I like to be at the most. I love you guys, guys.” Reborn, the Game Bibs has played the game, but he never made it past Serra. All other attempts were futile as they were abandoned after the first gym. “Oops.” Bibs remarks solemnly, “I guess I have a very short attention span.” But Reborn, the Game, isn’t the only ‘oops’ with Bibs. It’s not uncommon for Bibs to start a game, but put it down a few days later because some other game caught interest. He did mention that if it could be transferred to mobile, he could be more likely to play Reborn again. Within the game, Bib’s favorite moment ever is “every moment you beat Fern. FEELS GOOD.” He also enjoys Nuzlocking in Pokemon games because he can give Pokemon back stories. Bibs Overall Not only is Bib’s a great member in our community, his unique personality makes way for smiles and good times for those around him through memes. A very approachable person, Bibs is very open to chatting it up with everyone, even those who aren’t regulars yet. Which brings us to Bibs’s current goal and challenge; approaching new members of the community, even those who aren’t members yet. He also hopes to stay in the same exact position he’s already in now for as long as possible because he likes where he’s at. He wants to be “surrounded by cool people, really active, lotsa buddies c:” If you see Bibs around, be sure to throw some memes at him to say hi! Bibs’s last thoughts: “I wish to share with Reborn that I’m going to kick Marcello’s ass into oblivion for the creation of ‘Thanks, Ojama.’ Thanks, Marcello.” Marcello's response. Probably. A big thank you to Bibs for doing the interview with me! If you have a Rebornian in mind for the next Rebornian Mentions, comment below or give a shout out in chat! All images do not belong to me.

  11. Cat Chat Blogs presents: Rebornian Mentions: Marcello This week, Rebornian Mentions had a nomination! Jericho nominated our own Marcello this week so that we all could get to know him better. Marcello is one of Reborn’s developers for the Reborn game who lives somewhere in the U.K. staying busy with our game’s mechanics. I assume this is what Marcello looks like. (You'll get it soon) Who is Marcello? Marcello joined up with Reborn back in 2014 based off a Google search for Pokemon fangames. “I was just bored and in a Pokemon mood” Marcello recounts, “I stumbled upon Reborn and Zeta/Omicron because I remembered playing shitty romhacks as a kid and wondered how far fangames had come.” Soon, Marcello would have realized that fangames have come quite a long way from what they used to be. He made accounts for both Reborn and Omicron, but eventually nested in Reborn as a forever home. In Marcello’s spare time, he enjoys playing video games, working on Reborn and, get this, he enjoys doing math in his spare time. Who enjoys math? This guy. This guy enjoys math. Either way, it’s great that there are people out there who enjoy doing math. Math’s not easy, so I applaud Marcello for his hobby. Life in Reborn For Marcello, much of life in Reborn revolves around the game he helps in developing as a Reborn Developer. When he’s not focusing on the game, Marcello spends his time in Showdown! Reborn chatting it up with our community there. One of his favorite Rebornian moments happened recently there. “On the forums, Bibs innocently changed his picture to Ojama Yellow” from the popular card game/TV show Yu-Gi-Oh. “This is a great opportunity” Marcello continues, “so (I) posted a status telling everyone to respond to Bibs’ shitty jokes with ‘thanks, Ojama.’ (And) it caught on, so he changed his forum name to Ojama Brown, his server name to Toon Ojama, and it’s been hilarious.” Other than that, Marcello says that he doesn’t feel active enough to have much of a social life in Reborn. Marcello has no Rebornian crushes and his favorite Rebornian is Ame because Ame’s the only one he talks to most of the time for game development reasons. Of course, I try to urge him to communicate more, but he’s unsure of how to approach others. After a few failed attempts, we decided that mao gains the most communication for small talk. It's a great topic starter. I asked Marcello about being an auth and what his position is like. He is currently one of Reborn’s Developers for the game. “I’ve been a Developer for over a year now,” Marcello remarks about his position, “I am able to post in the Development Blog section.” It is there where a lot of Marcello’s work is done for the game. Often times he posts on real issues about the game such as bugs he aims to work out. But most of the time he spends posting memes about Exeggutor. “It’s more like me and, sometimes, Inuki posting memes at Ame. Sometimes Ame will just come out of nowhere and one-up us.” One time, Ame needed Marcello to put Exeggutor’s sprite in a different position in its statscreen because of its size. Marcello tried to be serious and posted a series of photos with Exeggutor everywhere except where Ame wanted it to be and she responded pretty well with the last photo in the series. Reborn the Game Throughout the entire interview, Marcello was all about the game; and for good reason too. Recently Marcello hit a huge achievement with Reborn by introducing online functions to the game. The original plan was to release online functions with Episode 17, but Marcello was able to work most of the bugs out of it to release it with Episode 16. He explains that online functions was a challenge for him because the package he got for online functions was simply a skeleton. “By the time I got to it (the package) it was very old… Just the basic instructions to set up a testing server environment was outdated and didn’t work.” However, it wasn’t the only part of his challenge. Marcello had to create a test server to even begin to test online functions. Once he got the server up, he was able to easily work out bugs to the point where he actually finished it early and even added a few extras to online functions. It’s because of Marcello that Reborn, the game, has online functions. Even though Reborn has plenty developers such as Smeargletail, Mde, and Inuki, Marcello is currently the only developer who works on scripting. It’s Marcello who makes sure that the game is functioning correctly and also for implementing new features to the game such as the online functions and, soon to be released in Episode 17, Gen VII. At one point, he did have others who worked with him on scripting. “When I joined the team, Kuro was in charge of scripting, and there was five of us who joined the scripting team. Three for bug-fixing, two for implementation” for larger projects. Over time, everyone but Marcello stepped down for life reasons. Even though Marcello doesn’t mind being the only one working on scripting, he still has Kuro to rely on time to time for advice in fixing things. “They’re (Kuro) still my teacher and I still ask them for help if I need it.” As for the game itself, Marcello says that he’s a huge fan of the game. He says that playing the game is another reason that led him to being a developer for the game. His favorite thing about Reborn, the game, is that he finds it challenging for himself in the sense that it lets him explore different aspects of Pokemon for teams. “I suck at Pokemon, so it’s really fun working out how to beat this leader and that leader.” Marcello is looking forward to Gen VII’s implementation into the game for extra challenge, and also because he gets a bit of input on how to work Gen VII into the game. I asked if he had any teasers he could share with us about Episode 17, but unfortunately he only knows what everyone else knows. Sounds like our authy should consider putting out teasers for new episodes! This is the face we'd make if we had teasers. The Big Picture Marcello is a wonderful person who strives in helping his community in any way possible. His love of video games lead him on a path with Reborn to be a great developer. He intends to use his love of video games as a profession in the adult world and currently goes to school for it. The experience he gains here can and will go far in his journey. As for his current goals here with Reborn, he doesn’t have much since he’s a go-with-the-flow kind of guy. He does tinker with the idea of doing more with online features for the game, so I guess we could call it a goal. If you see Marcello around, be sure to say hi! A big thank you to Marcello for doing the interview with me! If you have someone in mind who deserves a Rebornian mention, comment below or give a shout-out in chat! All images do not belong to me.
