    Default New Pokemon Democratic Forum?

    Honestly, looking around, it seems like no one has ever even attempted to do this. I propose us at PD, make a new democratic pokemon forum, where everything is decided and voted on democratically, no dictator like mods or admin oligrachy. I can't do this alone though, I need some of you guys, and your friends too, to jump on the boat. And we need help to figure out how to make this BIG, I want this to be an example to the rest of the internet that it can work. I want to make this clear, this is not a replacement for PD, PD should still be our main forum, this is just an expansion into a new land. This is just a brain storm thread, for ideas, names, and how to get popular. I have attempted this shit in the past, I know a few of you have too, maybe perhaps together, it can work.

    I just don't understand why it has never even been tried? And if the numbers get to big, you could always switch over to a republic, but I doubt that will ever happen, I mean there only only like 4 pokemon sites that big in existance.

    Well to be honest Haxor, you where posting like crazy, but I am sure now your a lot more calm. I don't think a restriction was nessisary, but though calls must be made, problem is nothing exists to check God, while he is a great guy, he shouldn't be an unchallenged ruler. Honestly PD is one of the better forums I have ever seen, and its a fucking Dictatorship, thats sad.

    And smogon just sucks, you can onyl be in charge if your rating is high, its like apointing scientists as our leaders, because they are the smartest. Thats not how the world works.

    ToF is a good forum.New one created anyways lol.Is governed by admins but any bans or restrictions are discussed by our mods and higher rather then a God-mode admin who is untouchable.

    PD's not a dictatorship because Tim's not the only one in power.

    You could label PD as an elitist forum, but it's not like the mods oppress the people who are outside the group.

    mewtwo isnt active to be considered as part of the decision making process and god could fuck mods over whenever he wanted. youre his aides; youre not on equal footing with him

    forums will always be dictatorships/oligarchies kirby. democracy is a flawed concept in the real world and even worse when it comes to internet forums; people in general dont know what they want and are too stupid to figure it out, and if they act on something it'll be out of short-sighted personal interest rather than the greater good. having a bunch of adhd induced teenagers who arent above using any means necessary to tilt the game to their favour voting to change the metagame (and i know this idea came entirely from you being pissed with smogon and has nothing to do with gods rule over pd) will almost always come up with results that arent objective or rational in the slightest.

    That...actually makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately.

    Rayne's only the son of a rich oil monarch, he needs such explainations to prevent his overthrow.

    Name ideas? I was thinking pokemonarcy or pokecratic, but that sounds too lame.
