Re: I think we should try something new.
I used to hop all over the forum, but for the past, oh, I dunno, year or two, I've been skulking in the URPG section because I haven't had much interest in the rest of the forum. But lately I've been getting back into the RP board, and once I get time I might actually start up stuff in the Fanfic section.
Most of the discussion that goes on here doesn't interest me, usually because by the time I get around to seeing something I might want to post on, it's degenerated into a bunch of SPAMy flame posts. Then I have to clean up said SPAM and it makes me not even feel like bothering to try to find somewhere to post.
Oh, and some of the others will find this familiar, but just because we're a Pokemon forum doesn't mean we shouldn't expect some level of maturity from our members. The rules are in place to help ensure people act decent and not like complete retards. Not that it always works; look at me XD.
But seriously, there will always be people who think the rules or the Mods are too harsh. Trust me, the amount of stuff we let slide FAR outweighs the punishments we've handed out. But now I'm just repeating stuff others have said, so I think it's time for me to go sleep now. *Has been up for nearly 27 hours now.*
Meh, if anyone wants me to come by a thread and start posting, just PM/VM me a link and I'll see what I can whip up.
One more thing. Everyone keeps going on and on about attracting new members in order to balance the people we lose. I've been saying this for months and months now, but here it is again. If you want more members, advertise more! If you guys have MySpace or Face Book or Twitter or whatever, then post links to PE2K. Blog about us. Post links to interesting topics. Talk about some of the people here. Get peoples' attention and make them interested enough to come see what we're all about.
