Don't you think that Pe2k, has become less active nowadays?When I joined there used to be a lot of activity on Pe2k, but nowadays there is less activity as compared to earlier.
What's your opinion on this?

When you joined, January 2007, a lot of people still had their holidays to spend on here. Now, everyone is back at school or work, so that would count as a serious activity dropper.

Though, everything is relative. DCC might be dead, but the URPG stories board couldn't be more active at the moment.

Yeah, this could be a reason, but nowadays the activity level has dropped by a great rate.

I suppose you haven't been around the great depression of 2006. :P
That was an all-time low for pe2k.

I haven't really noticed a drop in activity, but then again, I'm not usually on at the most active time of the day.

Just wait till Diamond and Pearl come out. This place will be crazy active again. ^_^

I mean that the members are not making posts. Earlier after every five minutes, five new posts were made but nowadays there are no new posts even for hours.

You got that right. People will be flooding the Other: Pokemon DS Games board. There'll be questions on how to pass a certain area, or help on a team to use to beat a gym, all kinds of things. Sarah, you had better start researching on the game, to be prepared in the future when this happens. (j/k)

Yeah, the board will be filled with threads of all kinds and unfortunately spam too. I can't imagine how the mods'll be able to keep that board in control.

Probably as the prime expert on timezones, I'd say everyone who is awake at about 10 AM GMT is screwed over on the activeness. You need to be in the American or Australian timezones if you want to see real activity.

I mean, when I go to sleep, most people in the US have their evenings. So, that's when a large part of pe2k posts and does stuff. It usually ends up with me missing half the stuff when I wake up or I'm forced to clean up the mess. XD

The Evening slot of the Aussie time zone isn't really that active.

I'd have to get up at about 6am to be around the peak activity time.

Getting up early > Staying up late.
At least on school days.

I'd have to stay up till 2 AM to witness the peak activity, I guess.

Not really, you were partly right when you said is less active now. There were times when the DCC would get up to 5 pages in a matter of minutes. But time zones do play a part in it.

That probably because it was holidays then so everybody was off school. Now its term time so of course its going to be less active. Also the time-zone differences come into play quite a bit for example I'm 2 hours ahead of GMT which means when the fourm is probably most active I'm asleep.

Well, I live in the U.S timezones, and I think there has been a drop of activty in the Strategies and Movesets Board, and the Graphic Arts Board. But in the summer, people are going to be more active. I would think.

Theres different time zones and theres people from around the world that go on here, so you'll only expect to see certain people that live a timezone away.

The other popular Pokemon forums are statistically slower right now too. Not only that, but it's also the slowest part of the year for most businesses. Late January through March. By April it'll pick up with spring breaks. By then, DP will be out, and there'll be loads of chatting.

Around April time there will probably be more activ-ness since d/p is coming out. But i think that the forum is less active because pokemon has been less active overall. Other than the show, not much pokemon has been happening. Most of the info has been coming from coro-coro and nintendo power. i hope it comes back with something new.

Pe2k's pretty much active when I am on. The reason why Pe2k's inactive is because Ridley is inactive. xD

Darned timezones...I usually have to stay all night if I want Pe2k to be active. Since my school's about 7.30-11.30 AM[when Pe2k's active] or at night. [12.00 am to all night]

So I stay awake all night. When I don't have homeowrk. and sleep in the afternoon. xD
