I agree with Lord. If you want to have the forums as popular as the site, make them more noticeable on the site.
Perhaps we could move all the walkthrough to stickies on the forums, or something... The site could allow people to navigate to the forums, and then when they're there, BAM.
MY FORUM IDEA:
New forum for whatever the new pokemon games are. black and white?
Competitive Battle (this should definitely be its own forum if mewtwo does something with this shoddy business.)
Combine Misc. Writing and Fan fiction for a general writing forum, and make Pokemon Art Gallery a general art forum.
Everything else the same.
God made it sound better tho
You wanted to combine competitive battling lord.
that's where the other 0.01% slots in nicely.
Yes its .01% the same as Gods because you dared to even think of doing that.
new forums made, someone go post some stuff about black and white
Good changes, God.
However, I moved Pokemon Connection back out to make it more discoverable.
Maybe the solution is in reduction instead of addition, as of now most of the sub forums and others haven't seen a single post let alone a thread in months.
Combination seems like what everyone is wanting and I agree with god, update and upgrade this place as much as you can without killing yourself over a boiling monitor :D
On Janurary 15th 2010 15 days after the deadline:
105 Active members. We needed 200.
7% posts in pokemon sections. That hasn't gone up at all.
We failed. Nice job guys.
I feel I should point out that some of us have very little to do with the metagame, the anime or indeed anything beyond the game itself. Posting in the pokemon section requires people to be interested in such things.
We need more game section threads. On other sites a lot of there activity isn't from disussions but from "poke-polls" like we have with you favorite pokemon but there is literally one formed every hour that popular. I am not saying we need to form one every hour but possibly a new pokepoll every week.
Polls for favourite pokemon? Isn't that just flamebait?
perhaps but it sure does get posts
more posts equals more google equals more members
If I remember correctly Google ranks pages by the number of pages linking to them.
the again the more topics the higher chance of appearing on google
True. I just hope the potential consequences are worth it.
Maybe if we knew why people came here we could use that to make sure they stay.
Oh, well, that's easy. We kill off a couple of members for the good of the forum and all is well.
