I don't want to complain but URPG needs more graders xD

I just checked and its been a month and no one has graded my story and its a magikarp story too so it would take like 10 mins tops to grade!

There's plenty of graders in the URPG. Have you tried posting the story in this thread to ask for a grade? If so, have you tried PMing a grader to grade your story (I'm always up for grading, but nobody PMs me)? Some graders wait for people to PM them rather than go and pick a story to grade. Also, some graders don't have time/don't want to grade because of real life issues and responsibilites.

Alright, I have little bit of a problem, I want to describe a Pokémon, but I can't seem to think of how to do it. I'm attempting describe a Sneasel, and here goes what I have: Unfortunately, he didn’t get it ready in time as a cat-like Pokémon that was dark blue in color with a red (head thing) and three tails that matched in color to the (head thing) popped out.

In addition, I want somebody to check my description in this sentence: To make things worse, his collection of Pokémon was far from impressive at it was only a Pikachu, small, yellow electrical mouse, a Combusken, a somewhat taller Pokémon that was a cross between a chicken and a human, and an Oynx, a large, rocky snake-like Pokémon.

Your number one aide in describing Pokemon: Size comparisons and irrelevant metaphors. Avoid simple colors, as they're kinda irrelevant details unless you add adjective descriptors to flesh 'em out a bit.

It is... y'know... an ear. But if you wanna get less technical, as I just said, metaphorical description--compare it to a feather, if you like, or something to that extent of shape. I'm sure there are better ones. And giving a sense of how big this ear-crest-thing is can be useful, also--choose something that mentions it being on the... vague plane of a rhododendron leaf, as opposed to the size of Sneasel's head, or the size of a bumblebee.

EDIT:

thegalleonman: (4:11:12 PM) Hey, wha'd you mean by:
thegalleonman: (4:11:15 PM) "Your number one aide in describing Pokemon: Size comparisons and irrelevant metaphors."?
ojajrrj: (4:11:47 PM) ...Probably a bit vague.
ojajrrj: (4:11:54 PM) I tried to rant
ojajrrj: (4:11:57 PM) but the thing timed out
ojajrrj: (4:12:02 PM) and that's the only sentence I still had. XD
thegalleonman: (4:12:12 PM) Ahaha.
thegalleonman: (4:12:20 PM) WELL, EXPLAIN IT MORE TO ME.
thegalleonman: (4:12:27 PM) ACTIVATE YOUR RANT POWERS.
thegalleonman: (4:12:33 PM) GOGOGOG
thegalleonman: (4:12:35 PM) O
ojajrrj: (4:13:06 PM) Pokemon work better if you don't describe individual parts literally with a head-to-foot analyzation.
ojajrrj: (4:13:12 PM) Well, everything works better like that
ojajrrj: (4:13:16 PM) but Pokemon in particular
ojajrrj: (4:13:19 PM) are more effective if
ojajrrj: (4:13:27 PM) say you're describing
ojajrrj: (4:13:33 PM) Koffing
thegalleonman: (4:13:40 PM) Uh-huh.
ojajrrj: (4:13:48 PM) My rant skills are off today
ojajrrj: (4:13:50 PM) I'm sick
ojajrrj: (4:13:52 PM) but anyway
ojajrrj: (4:13:53 PM) Koffing
ojajrrj: (4:13:55 PM) instead of "three big floating balls"
thegalleonman: (4:13:56 PM) XD
ojajrrj: (4:14:11 PM) and then specifics on the attributes
ojajrrj: (4:14:29 PM) of their forms
ojajrrj: (4:14:40 PM) a more abstractified metaphor like
ojajrrj: (4:14:41 PM) um
ojajrrj: (4:14:44 PM) ...
ojajrrj: (4:14:48 PM) I can't think of one right now.
ojajrrj: (4:14:48 PM) ._.
thegalleonman: (4:15:04 PM) "PURPLE DUMB BELLS WITH MOUTHS"?
ojajrrj: (4:15:12 PM) Something like that. XD
thegalleonman: (4:15:20 PM) WAHA, YES.
ojajrrj: (4:15:31 PM) Mixed with sporadic literal explanations.
thegalleonman: (4:15:47 PM) Hmm.
thegalleonman: (4:15:55 PM) Yeah, I didn't get all that from your sentence. XD
ojajrrj: (4:16:02 PM) ....
ojajrrj: (4:16:06 PM) Yeah

Because my answer was incredibly vague.

A pink, ear-like protrusion?

Also, this story is ready for grading. I know I just posted it, but I just came back to PE2K and I kinda want the Pokemon so I can start doing Contests with it, too. x3

teehee, you said Koffing but described a Weezing!

Now I'm curious, though. How would you describe a Diglett? A naughty innuendo?

Btw ATF, I got it covered. I'd have expected better, though.

OK, It's been a week now and still no grade on this thing: http://pokemonelite2000.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=104196

It seems that Battles go smoothly, but there are not enough story graders.

Boo-hoo.

really now. There's more than enough graders around. It's just we're pretty lazy/busy. You'vre been waiting for a week. I've waited up for 2 months for a grade, and that was when we didn't have this many grader. Don't complain. You won't be liked.
