A backup server would be more expensive, and useless, as it would still go down.

Then technically...until Ryan gets back, and experiences the down server for himself, there's little to nothing that we can do except find something else to do while the server is down.

Hmm, I don't know. I'm going to take a wild guess here and say maybe go out?

All forums have downtimes get over it, it's not even the admin's fault so I don't even see why you're bringing this up. If you want to ask anyone why the forum is down, don't ask the admin, find out who the server is run by and annoy them.

Can't Ryan just make the rules stricter in the D/P boards? It's bound to take out at least half of the noobs.

He'd need more enforcers then. Rules are nothing unless they're enforced.

See, the problem is, even with more mods and stricter guidelines and punishments, inevitably the rules will still be broken. While more mods would definitely help with this situation, they can't guarantee that every crime would go noticed; these n00bish threads ultimately put bad influences upon the newbies who've never been at a forum before, which just creates more n00bs.

There's a point!

Anyways, Ryan could Close tthe D/P Boards, and after like 1-5 Days,
He could open it back up, and then half the "Other People"
Will be gone.
But remember peeps, we were all newbs once before, so don't call people
n00bs.
It makes me remember when I signed up as indokido009009.
Dumb username...
Anyways, getting a new server is a bad idea is bad too.
It'll go down pretty quickly as well.
Let's take a look:

Suggestions:
1) Close D/P Boards, then open after a while
- To me, a good idea
- Only downside, the "Other People" might spam in other boards

2) Get a new server
- No, the new server will go down as well

3) Get a "Pe2k Special Access" As in paying to use a better server
- Good, but some people won't be able to pay, including meself
- Problably half of the Forum will be gone

4) ...
no idea...

There you go.

Coincidently. . . all three of those were suggested at SPPf too. Yes, I must agree the first two suggestions probably would not work out well. As for paying, that would work, except for the fact that you must be at least 18 with a valid credit card to pay, and most of us, including myself, are only 12-17 years old. That was also suggested to Serebii, and if Ryan's anything like him, he'll immediately frown upon that.

Like I've said several times before, there's nothing we can really do about it. We can only wait until Ryan starts being active again and see what happens.

That is a good idea but it would make my radar thread die. I am very attached to it.

So basically what we can all agree on is more mods?
I'm not an expert, but didn't we just get more of them?

I know Tyranitar Trainer was upgraded to a G-Mod. . . and that's about all I know. I need to start paying more attention to stuff like this. . .

That woould be a good idea. If you can get more people that can tackle problems as soon as the come up, then there would be a few less problems that need major fixing.
