Now guestbooks have pages!

Also, you can now wipe your entire guestbook clean with one click of a link! (And then another one for confirmation).

Hey look! It's another year. That's gotta be like six or something.

Unfortunately it appears that the previously announced The Legend of Spyro 3D movie has been cancelled.

Aura24 recently got in contact with one of the writers and got this response:

Quote: Daniel Altiere
So sorry for the let down but we're as disappointed as you are. I'm afraid we're just the writers -- no more than hired hands. We didn't even know the project was cancelled until months after they pulled the plug.

Did you consider writing the gaming company? They're the ones who made the decision to go in a different direction. And if we knew what that direction was we'd share it with you. Again sorry for the disappointment. Wish we had more encouraging news for you.

With no news since May 2008, it was only to be expected. I've readded the full synopsis of the proposed movie back to the The Legend of Spyro 3D page in case you are interested in what might have been.

Update: April Fools! Ha hah! Can't believe you all fell for it! Now back to Spyro and a complete lack of news on anything to do with the franchise.

Just a heads up, the Pokéwalker Route Yellow Forest will go up today on the Nintendo WFC so access the Mystery Gift from the main menu of HeartGold or SoulSilver and you will be able to claim your new route.

Yellow Forest is a special route entirely filled with Pikachus, the main draw being those rare ones at the high end of the step count (10,000+ and even then still rare) which have Fly or Surf.

Download a new Route for your Pokéwalker! The aptly named Yellow Forest is a Pokéwalker Route that is full of Pikachu! While you're exploring the Yellow Forest, you might even come across Pikachu that have special moves. The only way you can get the Yellow Forest Route is via a special distribution!

The route will only be available for download until the 5th of May so don't forget!

Character profiles in the Guidebook now also have an image gallery underneath them. So far I've added images for the first three games (totalling over 1000 newly uploaded screenshots) and over the next week or two I'll be adding in the rest of the games as well.

I've also added in profiles for a few baby dragons that I had accidentally skipped over previously.

As part of a Guidebook update that's in progress, I've tagged all of the images in the game galleries (e.g. Dawn of the Dragon) with the characters that they contain.

Earlier this week I added a new way for you to quote posts. It allows you to select several posts to quote in one go in order to respond to them all.

To use it simply click on "Multi Quote" at the bottom of each post you wish to quote and then on the "Multi Quote" button that appears just above the message box at the bottom of the page. It will quote each message in chronological order and create a gap between them. If you mistakenly selected a post just click the red "Multi Quote" text and it will not be quoted when you click the button.

You may also have noticed that topics which you are subscribed to now have a link at the top that says Unsubscribe instead of Subscribe. You can unsubscribe by clicking it instead of going to the subscription page. The subscription page will also now indicate if a topic is closed.

Oh yeah, and you can now have avatars up to 30KB.

Any boards not mentioned do not have a purge rate.

This should help a bit with the problem of people posting in topics that are dead. Please remember that it is of no real concern for somebody to post in an old topic on a board where there are very few topics.
