Paolo announced that PS.net was supposed to be put up June 20, 2000. Unfortuanetly, there has been a problem.|
Branden, the former owner of Ibutsu, has some vital scripting for PS.net (too my knowledge, it's Miva). On the Brand N Products BBS, Paolo asked Branden for the scripts, however Branden had to study for his finals, so he would have to fork the scripts over later. Yet here we are, several weeks later, and Branden still is keeping those scripts hostage.
Hurry up Branden, the Ibutsu fans cannot wait any longer!
As we all already know, Pokésource, the "sequel" to Ibutsu, is being made by Paolo Magayon, a former Ibutsu admin. PS.net is planning to be launched June 20, however a preview page of what it is going to look like is right here. Yesterday, I interviewed Paolo. This exclusive interview can only be found at w2news.com and at the official The Pokésource Post website. The interview is below:
STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSE'S MOUTH: An Interview With Paolo Magayon.
1. Where are you from?
SoCal (Southern California)
2. Do you like Pokémon?
Mainly the TCG, but the love of the game is starting to die...
> 3. How did you here about Ibutsu?
Ok... I'll make a long story short:
I first bumped into then Daniel Larsen's Pokémon Website (I think
that’s what it was called... and boy did the site look like someone stuck it
up their *** and then pulled it back out) through a search engine (interesting
enough huh?) and a couple weeks later I guess Rob bought the site and then it
got named Ibutsu.
> 4. Who hired you
to work for Ibutsu, and when?
Another long story short... hehehe:
It all started with my spamming of GTO ads... Branden emailed me and
asked if I had a website and I said no. So then Branden said that he'd
make room on Ibutsu for the GTO. After the GTO section was made... I
noticed that on MBRF (the Ibutsu admin area for those who don't know what it is)
I had access to the DR and BBS admin. That's how I became the BBS admin...
and that was also the time when security at MBRF was weak (good thing it was...
or else I wouldn't be working at Ibutsu would I?) Then a couple days later
I noticed my UL was set to 3... so of course I asked Branden why it was set
at 3 and he told me it was so that Spade, Deckard, and Darkon (back then
there were only 3 other admins besides myself) would screw around with the
GTO admin area.
After that I asked Branden if I could get access to MBRF admin...
then I got complete control of Ibutsu... mwawawawawa!!!!!
Err.... that was kinda long.... oh well.
> 5. Do you know any
of the former Ibutsu admins personally? If so, who?
Nope... and I'm glad I don't... I think they are all a bunch of
crackheads and wackos..... jk
> 6. What was your
occupation at Ibutsu?
BBS admin and site manager and part-time DR and the only source
of comedy on Ibutsu.
> 7. Did you like
Of course who wouldn't? :)
> 8. How long did you work at Ibutsu?
Between 6 and 7 months.
> 9. What did you
think of Ibutsu?
I think it had great potential and it was a great community.
> 10. How did you feel when you knew that Ibutsu was going to be shut
down? When Rob and a few other admins spammed it?
I felt angry and I cried to my mommy... jk.... that's
actually a good question though... I didn't believe it at first and when I found
out it was actually true I got really errr...... angry.
> 11. What is your
favorite Ibutsu memory?
Yelling at $Man.
> 12. What gave you the motivation to make a "sequel" to
Hmm... the ability to, the want to, and I wanted to keep
the Ibutsu "community" together. :)
> 13. How is
Pokésource coming along?
Branden is still holding my scripts hostage... otherwise everything's goin'
> 14. Are any
of the former Ibutsu admins going to be working there?
Not that I know of... but its' MAYBE likely.
> 15. Do you think
that PS will indeed be just as good or better than Ibutsu?
Of course it will!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for your time, Paolo. Can't wait for PS.net to come!
For all you Ibutsu fans, your prayers have been answered. I am also planning on interviewing Rob and Branden, and maybe a few others.
On an unrelated note, pspost.cjb.net is officially up, but it will be probably moving to a different server either later today or tomorrow. Don't worry, it'll still have the same URL.
