Sakura the ZPD moderator is retiring

15 December 2018 - 05:54 AM

(For lack of clever titles to write here.)


I know I just referenced this in my Opinions thread and quite short notice, but yeah, I'm retiring my position as a Custom Cards moderator after 4 years and 5 months (give/take a few days) on the job.


Why am I retiring?


Put bluntly, I face all 400-level courses in civil engineering from here on out, and if this semester's workload was any indicator, I will not have the time to be here / execute my duties properly and handle things at the same time if I want to graduate soon / get my full-time job.


(I do have a part-time job, but I cannot rely on it forever.)


I've known from the beginning that my time here wouldn't last forever.




I've been a staff member since July 12th, 2014 and well, seen the site change dramatically over that time. When I took this job long ago, I came on with the intent on making a difference for Custom Cards (and well, provide Zextra with a bit of help at the time). Looking back at how my section has become over the years, I think the place has gotten better, despite some of the setbacks of the time.


Granted, there have been bad points during my career and I can't say that I'm happy with myself in terms of how any of that turned out.


(I had more things that I wanted to do for the section and YCM altogether, but life just didn't allow for that to happen.)


What are you going to do now?


I won't leave entirely, but my presence won't be as frequent as it has been over the years. However, you can still find me on Discord in general or on Duel Portal.


I know some of you see me on both.

(DP name is Sakura Haruno, or my previous name prior to this one. Discord is located on profile.)



Before the chronicle of Sakura's modship closes and like actual cherry blossoms, scatters into the winds of history, I wish to say that it's been a pleasure serving you these past couple years and I hope for the section / site's future in the years to come.


I won't forget any of the memories made here, and those of you who I've gotten to know over the years.


If I end up not seeing you guys again, then...



Aloha a hui hou.

(Bye, until we meet again.)

Well, I got @Uggla6 as an AGM Secret Santa recipient (and he's one of the newest additions), so based on his list of likes/dislikes, this is what I came up for him.


Hope you enjoy them and Merry Christmas!



[AGM Group Project] Acceleranimals

15 December 2018 - 01:36 AM

Acceleranimal is a Beast-Type deck with members of multiple Attributes. They are capable of utilizing all of the Extra Deck mechanics (barring Pendulums) and focusing on spamming their members in order to do so. Each member is generally based on a single species of land mammalian creature and doesn't share its origin with other archetype members, however there can be overlaps.

The defining trait is that if a member leaves the field, they can float into a different member from the hand, Deck or GY. The Extra Deck monsters are capable of floating into multiple monsters from different locations. Main Deck members usually have a basic effect that gets plays going (i.e. search, SS from places, recycle resources), whereas the Extra Deck have enhanced versions of their "pre-evolved "forms plus some extra effects. It should be noted that each branch of the ED Summon mechanics has its own member that can perform it as a Quick Effect.


Backrow support is somewhat average.


explanation and stuff


I did write the OCG in series 10 (though AGM does use 9.5 for whatever reason). For all intents/purposes, they accomplish the same thing of telling you what things do.


Other than everything I wrote above, good job to those of us who collaborated on this archetype for the past couple months.
