I joined the forum 5 years ago, and have had my on and off periods. i have been active in about a year, but i came back every so often, and now this place is empty. it's kinda sad. Is there any particular reason for a majority of the population here leaving? or did it just happen?

Bad administration and some stupid decisions with the URPG imo.

No reason this place should have ever died.

A lot of the people who were most active when I started are now in their mid 20s and working, we never replaced them with enough quality weirdos.

Only reason I still pop on is because it's the summer holidays from Uni

People just left. They found an excuse to be somewhere else rather than visit the forum.


But anyway, we have had a decent increase in activity lately.

Hey, no worries ^_^ I'm still here!
OKKKK. Not helping. Well one good reason might be the WAR XI, people just got busy with things they're competing with and not to mention the tough schedules people follow.

Actually, WAR=Active Members. With WAR going on, people who are participating in it should be on slightly more. For the ones who aren't participating, I think they're not going to come on as much because it's "WAR this, WAR that" for them. Others have just...left. They've grown out of this forum, I guess.

Activity has actually improved a lot in the last year or so compared to what it was. Since the PE2K site stopped updating for a few years, we had a slow period where we weren't attracting new members despite old members moving on. Now that we have some power over the website to filter people back to the forums, we've been able to make some changes to get everything running again and get some new members. It takes time but we're slowly getting there! :)

I do not believe in bad Administrators. Just people who don't like being told the rules.

Reasons for my personal inactivity: I lost interest in the Internet in general. I am prepping to leave for two years on a religious trip but I plan on coming back as either TARDIS or White Rabbit. Both options are open. Actually, I may give one to a friend. Haha.

IMO I believe that PE2K is something that grows slowly, and the members grow fast. Most people have lives outside of this social outlet. Pokemon becomes that peice of your childhood that most give up, but not all. The ones who are still on this site have learned to be normal offline and controlled online. Personally, I believe more people should have their pokemon.

You do realize the only admin of the site would disappear for years on end without updating the site? :ermm:

ha ha I joined when I was 12, im 17 now. I come here really for the social aspect these days, but i guess things just changed, pokemon isnt really important to me any more, havent sat down and had a good play on my DS or GBA in over a year. I am guessing my story isnt the only one of it's kind. Maybe a share spree on other forums, blogs websites etc could pick up the pace around here maybe :) May share if i can find a good place :)

EDIT: I shared on this forum http://www.teenhut.net/advertising-agency/136778-great-forum-pokemon-fans.html#post1062961720 :) gonna get a hell of a lot of hate for this, but i dont care, it's worth it to see this place as busy as it used to be :D

At this point, I do not think that anyone has the right to be mad at you for doing so. I had been suggesting that perhaps advertising was a good idea, but no one is willing to do so (me included tbh). Great job!
