    Default how many of OUR forums will still be around in five years/a decade

    /other frequented sites/bittorrenttrackers/
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    like i can't see the big pokemon forums lasting too much longer, under the principle that you can't really make a profit outta them with the phenomenal server costs and if you're nearing the 25 to 30 age bracket i mean, how much longer are you going to be the webmaster of a pokemon forum

    really if you wiped away cosmo and just left pd, that would be ideal for all of us.
    pc; serebii; pe2k. i mean obviously i can just say i was thirteen but i dont like the idea the records are there.

    at this rate i would be ok if cosmo and pd were both wiped and we all started on a clean, private, invite only site

    nobody was saying it's going to lose popularity, we're saying the ageing webmasters will lose interest. will new webmasters replace them or will the websites themselves be replaced is what im sayin

    on the other hand i dunno, cosmo is pretty great. if it wasn't detectable by google that would be another thing, plus i wouldn't be able to live with myself if we destroyed cosmo after leo invested all those dollars in it

    I don't see any of the huge pokemon sites going down any time soon. And usually the people on top aren't doing it as a hobby, for example for serbii, the guy in charge, that is his job.
