    Default Doesn't it suck when...

    ...you have a great idea for a website feature and see many other sites set it up before you?

    Sigh.

    So as some of you may know, I thought of a nice feature for Pokemon Dream that will allow users to register their Nintendo WiFi Friend Code and put Pokemon up for trade. I got this idea LAST SUMMER, when this type of system did not exist...I began implementing it, but school started too soon. Now, I'm not even close to being done and, every week, I find another site that has implemented this feature already. As I expected, such a system is very much needed and popular.

    If only I got it up sooner...just a rant. I'm gonna get back to work on it now. Hopefully I can get it set up soon.

    You're letting school get in the way of your true success, Weizhong.

    Keep telling your self that, Weizhong. Keep telling yourself that and keep watching other Pokemon sites surpass the obviously superior POKEMONDREAMDOTCOM. You need to show the online Pokemon community who is boss.

    I'm actually not talking about forums where people discuss and set up trades...I'm talking about a web application DEDICATED to doing that, which has only recently shown up in several sites. A single forum doing that is no big surprise at all, and is not what I was referring to.

    Ooh. Nice place.

    Anyway, if it matters at all (considering it's coming from someone with less than a few posts), you could still go ahead with it. I mean, after all, everyone else's websites and their mothers' have online Pokedexes, yet places like Veekun have worked to take the idea and make it better than every other place with just the basic Pokedex. So, even if it's a feature other sites have done, you can still make something similar or, given a bit of time (which I know you said you don't have, but still), better. Besides, if you finish it up, you at least have the comfort of knowing at least PD members will use it, so it's not a complete waste of time and effort.

    In other words, kinda agreed with God here. Just go ahead with it. If you don't, then you'll miss the chances of adding something that will keep PD from being passed up by every other website out there.

    Except the term 'public university' is meaningless outside the US.

    well not really. but it will have different connotations.

    in japan the equivalent term 'private university' signifies a second rate institution as compared to a 'public university'
