Me too. It’s like 8 or 9 years old.
Glad I am not alone. lol It says I joined in March of 2004 so mine is close to 10 years old. wow. I’m really amazed at how long this website has been around.
We now have a translation from the new Japanese rulebook, so we now know exactly how Pendulum Summoning works:
“Pendulum Summon” is a new form of summoning using Pendulum Monsters. By performing a Pendulum Summon, you can Special Summon a lot of monsters at once. The monsters you can bring out with a Pendulum Summon differ by the Pendulum Scale on Pendulum Monsters, but given the right conditions you can bring out high level monsters. You can only perform 1 Pendulum Summon per turn.
[Necessities for Pendulum Summoning]
If you want to Pendulum Summon, you have to first check the Pendulum Scales on the Pendulum Monsters. In the example above, the Pendulum Scale is 1. These numbers are different from the Level a monster naturally has. To perform a Pendulum Summon you need 2 Pendulum Monsters. So be sure to put 2 or more Pendulum Monsters with different Pendulum Scales in your Main Deck!
Pendulum Summoning Procedure
1. During your Main Phase, you can place Pendulum Monsters from your hand to your Pendulum Zones. This is done just like activating a Normal Spell or Continuous Spell, but in your Pendulum Zone, and after activation, they will still in the Pendulum Zones as long as they are not destroyed by card effects.
2. Once you have a Pendulum Monster in each Pendulum Zone, you can declare that you are performing a Pendulum Summon during your Main Phase. Check the Pendulum Scales on the Pendulum Monsters, then, Special Summon any number of monsters from your hand (up to as many as your open Monster Zones) whose Levels are numbers that are between the Pendulum Scales. This completes your Pendulum Summon.
I.E. For a Pendulum Summon performed using Pendulum Monsters with Pendulum Scales 1 and 8, you can Special Summon Level 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 monsters.
[Special Summoning from the Extra Deck]
If a Pendulum Monster would go from the field to the Graveyard, it does not go to the Graveyard but rather is placed on your Extra Deck Zone. When you declare that you are performing a Pendulum Summon, if there are any Pendulum Monsters in your Extra Deck, you can Special Summon those monsters as well. (Be aware that just like with the monsters you Special Summon from your hand, you have to check to make sure that Pendulum Monsters’ Levels that you want to Special Summon are between the Pendulum Scales on the Pendulum Zones.) The number of monsters you Special Summon when you perform a Pendulum Summon is entirely up to you, and it is possible for you to Special Summon only from the hand, only from the Extra Deck, or from both places.
-How to Place Pendulum Monsters in the Pendulum Zones
Pendulum Monsters are monsters, but they can be activated like Spell Cards and placed in the Pendulum Zones. (You cannot Set a Pendulum Monster into the Pendulum Zone.) While in the Pendulum Zone, they are treated as Spells, and apply their Pendulum Effects. (Their effects as Monsters are not applied.) (However, although they are treated as Spells, they are special cards that are not treated as a Normal, Continuous, Field, Equip, Quick-Play, or Ritual Spell Card.) Pendulum Monsters placed in your Pendulum Zones do not count towards you 5 card total in your Spell & Trap Zone. You cannot replace Pendulum Monsters that are in your Pendulum Zones like you can with Field Spell Cards. (They remain in the Zone as long as they are not destroyed.) As long as your Pendulum Zones are open, there is no limit to how many times you can place Pendulum Monsters into your Pendulum Zones per turn.
-About Pendulum Summons
When you perform a Pendulum Summon, it is important to be aware of the Pendulum Scales. For example, if you have 2 Pendulum Monsters in your Pendulum Zones with Pendulum Scales that are either the same or have a difference of 1, you cannot perform a Pendulum Summon, because there is no Level number that exists between them. (Even though you cannot perform a Pendulum Summon, you still gain the Pendulum Effects of the Pendulum Monsters in the Pendulum Zones.)
-About Adding Pendulum Monsters to your Extra Deck
A player can only start the Duel with an Extra Deck of 15 or less cards, containing only Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Monsters. However, Pendulum Monsters can be added from the field to your Extra Deck during the course of a Duel. Even if your Extra Deck total goes over 15 during a Duel due to Pendulum Monsters being added to your Extra Deck, it does not count as breaking the rules of the game. If a Pendulum Monster exists as a card on the field and would be sent to the Graveyard (not just while they are in your Pendulum Zones), you add them to your Extra Deck. (The same thing happens if they are face-down on the field and would be sent to the Graveyard.) To differentiate the Pendulum Monsters from the other monsters in your Extra Deck, you place them face-up on your Extra Deck. (The number of Pendulum Monsters added to an Extra Deck, as well as their specific card information, are considered public knowledge and both players may check them at any time.) If a Pendulum Monster is sent from the hand or Deck to the Graveyard, or if they are used as Xyz Material and then sent to the Graveyard, they go into the Graveyard like normal. After a Duel has ended, remember to return the Pendulum Monsters that are added to the Extra Deck back to your Main Deck.
(Spread the word and get searching! It may even be a good idea to put this in your Queue to be posted every 6/7th and 19/20th as a reminder!)
#SafeSearchWrapUp is heavily community driven effort to help make the SafeSearch features on image-search engines such as GoogleImages, Bing, or Youtube be free of NSFW content. Every cartoon from “Avatar: The Last Airbender” to “Young Justice” contains fan made pornographic works referred to as Rule-34. Rule-34 is a catch all term denoting porn of ANYTHING and EVERYTHING, cartoon or not. However searching up images of any animated series will likely turn up these images, even on the first few pages.
As the teen and adult fans of the show, we have to be considerate of the younger target audience. A lot of parents and their children may be looking up images of their favorite characters to print out and put on their wall or such. As a community we can make image searching safer for the young ones and their parents. No shutting down or deleting things from existence, simply keeping it off SafeSearch as a courtesy for others.
The Game Plan:
Everyone should pick at least one search term they think would commonly used by kids and their parents, such as “My little pony twilight sparkle”. You can search at your leisure through a few pages… say 5-10 at least? However, on the 7th and 20th of every month we can all do it in large droves. If the call is sent out all at the same time, like a tradition then more people are likely to participate. Additionally, if Google or Bing gets a lot of flags for the same image from a lot of people- we can assume they will be more likely to remove it.
What to look for? Gore, blood, penises, vaginas, and perhaps lingerie. Just use your best judgement. Honestly if its something you wouldn’t look at while at work or show to a kid, then its probably not something we want showing up in a safe-search! If you think it should be done out of safe search as well, then thats your call to make.
How To Flag:
On Google, simply enlarge an image and go to Send Feedback circled here and enter comment notifying them the image is “not suitable for children” or something along those lines. If you would like a video tutorial, courtesy of jackrahbit, then click here.:
On Bing, simply click the flag image in the lower left corner when you hover over an image. Then check the “Adult” checkbox. If you would like, jackrahbit made a YouTube video showing how. Quick and easy! Lets do this!

Note: The original date was going to be the 15th of every month, however I decided to do it en masse twice a month instead.
just a reminded that this is today
I know I already reblogged this but I wanted to say that while the MLP fandom is chock full of NSFW stuff, old cartoons are not exempt. I’m doing older movies such as Tarzan and Prince of Egypt, because some children might be searching those too!!!
True. And if anyone feels like spearheading a more specialized version of this for their fandom, go for it!
I’m going to put this up on here becαuse I know there’s ALOT of porn for The Amαzing World Of Gumbαll. I run into it αlot, αnd there αre αlot of kids who like the show (my niece is α fαn, she liked my belt), αnd I’d like to help keeping it αwαy from the kids, αs well αs my niece. I don’t reαlly like seeing it myself, so I know the feeling. If people like it, thαt’s fine. But pleαse keep it out of the eyes of kids.
