    Default What happens post PD?

    This post started as a reply to the other shut down thread. But it got long, so I figured I'd make a new thread.

    So if PD shut down sometime in the next year or even 3 or so, is that it? are we done? Never to post together again. I mean I guess I know it will happen eventually but do we have to make it so easy for us to be broken up and separated? Are we simply going to try to log on one day, and then not be able to for a month straight and then walk away? A few of us have each other on some other social media and other contacts, but to me it's not the same. That's not how our bonds are tied, we're not meant Facebook messagw, text, etc, it simply doesn't feel as right as posting on a forum together.

    Honestly if so, I might be a little heart broken, like really heart broken. A lot of you guys are some of my longest known friends that I still somewhat talk to. My friends I had Irl when we posted together years ago, I have no contact with. And I'd really hate to see the same thing happen with you guys. There's already a hand full of members I have already lost contact with that I wish I wouldn't have.

    Many different forums have housed us and then fell into the cracks, hell this one has had its moments in this the grave. And some how after all that here we are. And I may be the only one that feels this way about this, but I hope not. I hope you all have some honour amoung ourselfs to want to find another place after this one has left us too.

    So I guess what am saying is, what are we going to do? Ride it out tell the very end and find a new place to latch onto in the aftermath? Or we going to jump ship before and try and start our own place? Or are we going to hold onto our pipe dream of this place being around forever, and walk away when it's over?

    if pd dies and there is no existing alternative ill probably set up a forum that we can post on (if there is a demand). not intended as a successor to cosmo or pd or anything - just another place we can hang out. i feel like we have enough people who like forum posting enough that we can house it with the middling activity thats dominated pd for the past few years. at worst it'll at least be a place for us to reach out to one another, since not all of us have each other on social media.

    i think there are enough connections that someone can set up a proboards and everyone will be able to be contacted with the link.

    In all reality, Mewtwo will not delete the forums, he will keep it up so long as he has Pokedream up, and slowly just suffocating us by not having new users.

    He did the exact same thing with the Drawing Board, yes, that is right, Pokedream has ANOTHER community on the site (it was really meta when I first joined, it was like PD's parallel universe). People still post on it from time to time and leave messages in the archives, its kind of depressing actually.

    the more I think about it, the more worrisome that possibility of Pokedream just fading into that good night becomes

    Gr00vy forums is always open! But I don't think PD going down would hamper us much. Think on the bright side, we can add those smileys I retrieved, and make some styles that resemble PD of old!

    Yes, but he hasn't updated the main site with actual useful informationin a long time. Who knows how long he is going to keep the site up in general? He obviously doesn't care enough to keep it updated, eventually he won't won't care enough to keep it running.

    Yeah, I'm not looking for the spiritual successor to the forums or something to be the next pd, just as long as we don't fade off into nothingness.
