Tree Style
A style inadvertently invented by Emperor MAR which entails being large, wearing a green shirt & wearing khaki pants. The tree style can also be accompanied by darker brown boots to create the illusion of dirt.

Green-Spring, Alternate Green-Summer, Orange-Autumn, Blue-Winter (to represent when one looks up at a tree and it have no leaves one only sees the sky), White-Winter (to represent snow on the tree's branches)

From members of the Ateaseweb.com Message Board

"you disturb me. honestly, piemerica is one of the most unsettling things i've ever seen." ~politika (Jul 31, 2003)

" Piemerica. ... that site disturbed me........ i just found it sad and unsettling that someone would devote so much of their time to a website filled with non-sensical things like 'drinking books' etc. that seemed to be one, long, deluded personal joke. .......i found it so utterly bizarre that i looked through good portions of the site trying to cull some meaning out of it. that failed. " ~politika (Dec 2003)

"no. no no no. piemerica was never ever cool or anything good at all." ~Rez

"i remember back in the day when someone went on a rant about how much that site made their head hurt, that someone would spend so much time coming up with something so utterly complex yet meaningless, that it had to be the work of someone with some mental affliction.

they were right" ~zambaretzu, referencing politika's quote above (Aug 20 2005)

Updates

Piemerica.org is currently updated at least once a month.
In January 2003 Piemerica implemented Daily Updates which for the first couple of months was updated everyday with something new and original specifically written for the updates. Piemerica, having a tremendous back catalog of material, was updated frequently for years with previously created material as well as new.
From February 15,2004 to April 5, 2005 for 415 consecutive days Piemerica's Website was updated. When the streak knowingly ended 19 days worth of "Update Prescriptions" were posted to supplement for time offline. Whenever Piemerica would go without updates for a considerable period of time there would be a large come-back style return date with large and multiple updates.
