Moving forward, PokeDream will not try to be all-inclusive in terms of content. We can't do everything. We simply do not have the resources. I'm just one guy. And, there's no way I can trust anyone else right now to update the site (besides news). Instead, we'll be focusing our efforts on doing a few things really, really well: PokeRep and walkthroughs for major Pokemon games.
That said, the Forums is still really behind the main site in terms of popularity. The main site can definitely go a long way in helping the Forums.
I agree we need to be more welcoming to new members. Encouraging them to post in the intro forum is a good start.
