This site is Scott's primary website, built as a replacement for his previous site, Floatzel.Net. It primarily hosts Pokémon and Mario information, with a selection of videos created in Mario Paint Composer. This site was developed with PHP.
Critter Pics is a photography gallery built to display Scott's and his father's wildlife photography. It is still under construction and has been built with PHP, MySQL, and GD, with images edited in Photoshop Lightroom.
Critterpedia (no relation to Critter Pics) is a simple guide to collecting the insects, fish, and diving creatures in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It shows which critters can be caught in the current month, which ones are new for the month, and which ones won't be available next month. The site also features several item lists.
Dargplex is a simple chat system meant to be minimalistic and efficient. Scott has worked on several chat systems in the past, associated with Victory Road, but they have since been closed down. This one is entirely separate from Victory Road but is invite-only.
The Pokémon Rater is a simple survey game where visitors can vote for the Pokémon characters that they like more. They are presented with two characters and can vote for one of them, or state that they like both or neither. He has also prepared a statistics page that enumerates the results of all votes and allows searching for specific Pokémon.
This was the vBulletin forum that Scott administrated from the summer of 2008 through January 2018. It had gone through several iterations since then and was formerly on phpBB. Its usage gradually waned until only a few members hung around. The site is now archived.
The Adoption Center, tied into the Victory Road forum, allowed users to adopt
pets with which clicking on them each day levels them up. A large selection of pets were available (mostly Pokémon, but included characters from the My Little Pony franchise as well as various pet rocks), and a special one was available each month. Some pets changed with enough clicks. This site was developed with PHP and MySQL.
This was Scott's flagship gaming fan site from 2006 through late 2010. It had gone through several transitions, originally titled Mario Minus World and later Buizel.Net. Floatzel.Net was originally developed with XHTML and some portions later ported to PHP. The site has been replaced with Lycanroc.Net, which was rebuilt from scratch.
VGVids was a cancelled project built as the successor to Floatzel.Net. Its primary function was to consolidate Scott's multimedia and other files currently spread across the Web as well as to accept relevant files from others. Much of the code was re-tooled and folded into a restructuring of Floatzel.Net, as Lycanroc.Net.
Victory Road Chat was a desktop chat application tied into the forum and built around the inefficiencies of various vBulletin chat modules at providing an adequate integrated chat experience. The software was built to work with multiple rooms, handle many online users, allow custom formatting, and play customized notification sounds. The software was built in Visual Basic .NET and compiled for Windows 2000 and newer.
Badger Photo was a photography blog and gallery, dedicated to Scott's nature and wildlife photography with a Nikon DSLR. Its contents were moved to Critter Pics.
The Pokékaki was a drawing board (Japanese oekaki) built extensively with PHP and MySQL around two pre-built Java applets: ChibiPaint and Shi-Painter. Artists could use the system to create simple or complex illustrations. The site was deprecated and eventually phased out due to lowered support of Java in major browsers and increased security in Java's default settings.
