Happy UPN day!

I don't have a cool story on or anything..I just happened to stumble upon this place thanks to Fizzy Bubbles..and I've been here ever since.
I don't intend on leaving this place anytime soon, the past (almost) five years here have been great, and it's only going to get better with Fizzy Bubble's improving.

Happy UPN Day!

I actually hail from 2007, on an account that will stay dead and buried. (Oops, I hope admitting that doesn't get me banned. ;^;) I came back in the day for FB, and I came again for FB this year. I got to take part in the revolution, and I'm very much enjoying a new and functional game sans some of the, well... tyranny.

My UPN story is getting the gracious Kuno to implement justified alignment on the forums, which cements this place as the best forum on the internet. So few other places recognize the superiority of the justify alignment, but it is truly the best of the alignments.

I've reconnected with some old friends here; Jeri, Muyo, Furizaa, Alto -- it's been good, it's been nice. I'm not sure I'd ever get to take part in a UPN meetup though I'm open to the idea and I think it'd be very nice.

You have a strange view of me if you think this is something I give a shit about.

Everyone who posted before here should be able to change their user titles and/or had their name change request done.

Happy UPN Day frens

Wow I can't believe I've been here for four years already (only my 3rd time posting though); time flies, man. Since last year, I've returned to ASB (albeit barely), but I haven't really been around to talk much. This is because, thanks to college, I've had perhaps the greatest year of my life. I've found several great groups of friends, gotten involved in things I'm really passionate about, and had more fun than I ever thought I would. Which makes me miss college a great deal right now as I sit here at home for the summer, unable to do much of anything since I'm recovering from surgery. This whole ordeal is a pretty sharp contrast to the highs of the school year, but I at least have something to look forward to in a couple months.

Now, even though I haven't been super present this past year, that doesn't mean I've forgotten about everyone here at UPN, I've just been super involved in this new chapter of my life. So thanks again UPN, for being there for me when I've needed you most and helping me get this far. I'm always here if anyone needs me; don't hesitate to reach out. Love you guys~

Hi. I came on UPN some two to three years ago from ASB and stayed, barring the past like half a year where I stopped myself from visiting the forum to focus on school and life. I'm still doing that but I'll drop in anyways. Happy UPN day

It's been pretty eventful yeah.

A lot has happened IRL for me, perhaps more than I'm comfortable with, but I also feel like for the first time in -years- my intelligence has increased. Living on my on and doing stuff has certainly done wonders for the maturity.

Yet at the same time I'm cracking the same old faux (and legit) pervert jokes. Some things never change.

If I ever make an appearance in UPN: The Game II, I hope it's just to buy Kuno a sports bra. Stlbk might not say anything but you should show some modesty. XP

Wacky year for sure. I think when I look back at the past year, I've spent most of it laughing at dumb jokes and stuff in the UPN Game. Which in turn has only encouraged Kuno to put even more dumb jokes and stuff in the UPN Game.

Oh yeah, when the game comes out, people need to keep streaming it, because that stuff is A++. I love all you streamers. Even if I keep missing most of the streams.

What's with this "real life" thing that's ruining all our fun these days? I remember when I had nothing to do but sit around and joke with people in chatrooms. I wish it could be like that again. Darn this "real life"! How do I make it go away?!

You basically have to quit your job.

That's actually what I did, this past June 8th. I've transitioned to several part-time positions to get myself the free time to train for the Marines.

Also, you can't chat with people if you don't go on AIM anymore. =3=

Man, I feel you on this. I miss the carefree younger days of our community on UPN - I used to have a lot of heart-heavy nostalgia regarding FB, in particular - but the lesson this year seems to be that there's still a lot of fun to be had and new memories to make, even as our lives get more complicated.

Here's to many more years of friendship and hope despair? craziness.

Hi there.

I've never posted on one of these before, but I happened to drop in at the right time of year. I could write a lot, too much, but I'll try to keep it brief and not too rambling.

UPN was a part of my youth. It was the third forum I registered at (ask me how I know this ) in a time where I was really "paranoid" and hesitant to register for things or give out any information at all about myself. (After a suitable period of fearful lurking, I registered one day after you-know-who...it stings!)

See, I fell in love with the animé. In those ancient days I just browsed the internet looking for any kind of engaging material, anything resembling entertainment. It may have been the web ring that brought me to the site, because dag yo, I actually looked at stuff like that in those ancient days.

There wasn't really much animé discussion at all, well besides shipping which I have little to say about. Mostly discussion of the games and of course those endless gym battles that I can't really say much about. So I mostly posted meaningless messages on general opinion threads.

As for the animé, it got old after a while, maybe it jump'd the shark, to say, Ash achieved his goals and so on and then in a great commercial tradition they sort of started all over again. So it was hard for me to appreciate the gravity of the story thereafter. Johto?

I never had a game boy. One year I meekly asked my dad for one as a Christmas present. I made a wish list with a disclaimer on it. It was pretty damn after the fact, years after the fact, but ah, in those days there were still a crowd of people waiting for me on ICQ. It feels like someone else's life now. Which it is.

Time passed. Lives changed. Also, my account got deleted over and over again. What is this, board 11? So there was that going on, that turbidity in the community. The people I knew drifted away. Chaos drifted pretty close to me, but then, after perhaps recieving indifferent silence from me for a time, return'd the favor. At one point I asked her why we couldn't talk on AIM/MSN anymore and she told me she posted all the pertinent information in her livejournal and there was no point in repeating it for me. I guess...
makes sense...

After a few years I registered at a forum dedicated to a game. Great game, by the way. I ended up working there through some strange twist of fate. It became my home forum, and I spent a few years there. The successor sites to UPN were rather inactive for my taste and increasingly on topics I had nothing to say about. The people, unfamilliar. Half of them left, the others changed their names

I used to use this all the time It made my comments so profound


I got kicked off of the game forum's staff. Not much of a personal life. I ended up distancing myself from a lot of computer game/entertainment stuff to focus on life, which sort of helped at least mentally if not in reality. So now I don't really have a home forum, haven't had one in years. It's a lonely existence, but I remember when I had "friends" and there was always a warm welcome...I don't pretend to understand why people liked me.

For instance, I got on the staff of the game forum because an existing staff member saw something in me. I can't imagine what he was thinking. I was present, but me?? I guess I was just a big fish in a small pond. But it wasn't a small site by any means. I'll never forget the time I spent there.

In conclusion I have pretty much nothing to do with this site now but since I have no life I look back to when I felt as if I did.

I demand recognition and bling for being old

Today marks the 18th anniversary of the Universal Pokémon Network web forum. Eighteen years of laughs, smiles, and tears. From furniture pr0n and :::TR::: to YouPorn Stars and UPN: The Downfall, generations of members have partaken in threads which turn into cherished memories as the years go by.

Happy birthday, UPN. May you continue to bring happiness and comfort to those who consider you "home" for many years to come.

HAPPY UPN DAY! You guys are an awesome bunch )

Man ok I have not been active this past year. School is annoying and I'll be doing my IB exams in five months' time - so there's gonna be lots of preparation leading up to that. And then after that it's National Service for me. Still, the ongoing Mafia game really reminded me of my love for Yupien. Hopefully I'll be able to post more by the time next UPN day rolls around.

Okay I have 12 minutes to spare in the time zone I'm in, though I know I technically am late east-coast wise xP

Anyway, being crazy busy with school has prevented me from being active on the forums in the past year, but despite that I'm really happy that I've become closer friends with so many people here~ I attribute most of that to UPN Con last July; I had so much fun with everyone, and I'm excited that plans are being made for another one :D (It's also cool that you guys liked my dad x3 ) Since then I've been lucky enough to hang out in person with Kuno, Morg, Loki, and Alto! Which is so super cool!! To everyone that I've talked to both on the forums and on Discord: thanks for being awesome and making this a fun and supportive community~ Happy UPN Day!

I never post this at exactly midnight (also timezones are a thing) so the general rule is always 24 hours after I make the post. But honestly even if you miss it by a little bit it's probably fine.

I haven't gone to sleep yet so it's still UPN Day for me!

I've been very non-active lately, occasionally making lazy comments every week or so, but fortunately I was recently laid off from my job so now I'm a NEET loser until I go to school in September. I'm going to try shocking the anime forum with defibrillator paddles but damn we need some new recruits. You Fizzy Bubblers can't tell me that you don't watch anime, come hang out with us!

Could you change my username to McSweeney, with a capital S? It's time that I finally fix this 17 year old spelling error.

Better late than never

Been around UPN for probably coming up on two years. Skyrocketed through the ASB Trainer levels, snagged myself the Water Gym. Joined WF, updating a tonne their and loving it, wish it moved a tad faster but oh well lol. Recently joined FB and enjoying the experience so far, the renewed effort put into it was enough to drag me in and I think it's heading in the right direction.

Met Chiko (could have met Kamen but he stuffed up the dates by an entire month), can confirm Chiko is the smalls, he also hates Snorlax's and struggles to find the right Hungry Jacks.

This time next year I will probably be finishing off my teaching degree which will be super exciting, I am tired of working in a school and not being a teacher haha.

You were the one who struggled to find the right Hungry Jacks, tyvm.

Also, Kuno, if you find yourself able to be benevolent enough, is there any chance you could change my name to Chiko just so there's no chance for a mistake of identity over Discord? Not holding my breath, so you don't have to considering I didn't post in 2015 due to returning after it.

EDIT: Thank you very much, based Kuno
