Well, I just wanted to know what persuaded you to make you join PokeDream Forums. As for me, I was searching, "Cool Pokemon Websites" in hope of finding a way to get a Shiny Charizard. Then I saw http://www.pokedream.com/
I clicked on it and then clicked "Forums" and thats how I got persuaded here.
(P.S. I didn't find out how to get a Shiny Charizard, PM me if you have one)
