I always like the Pokecommunity for many reasons. I knew this was a very successful forum and today I ran into something. It was the forum ranking of all the forums in the world. I went through and found PokeCommunity.

The ranking (I think it was based on posts) was 351 of all forum of all subjects and languages. I also found Serebii on it, which was 189 (this is a better rank, but I still prefer Pokecommunity over Serebii).

I thought I should share this with all the other members here. This community really is a great community. I hope it continues to grow and be active. Thank you for reading my feedback.

Just a guess but you are referring to Big Boards (http://www.big-boards.com/) right?

PC actually has more total accounts registered than SPPf as of recently, but they have way more posts and more members online at once than us.

Really though it's not a competition. The two forums are way different from each other, some people prefer SPPf over how we do things here on PC. Some prefer PC over SPPf (and some just don't know the other exists. XD)

At any rate, moving this off to OC, it's more suited for that forum since it's not really feedback or a question or anything.

Yes, I'm. You knew about that place before?

PC's rom hacking section is what keeps me coming, nothing else is too interesting to me.

PC's better than Serebii. Their rules are weird.

So lets all get PC to number 1 or something? Though lol, impossible.

PC rocks... Serebii is somewhat... uh.... not really great.
The only good thing about serebii is their pokedex and stuff. And PC has more members(I think) to interact with.

Serebii has pissed but not ass censored. You cant talk bout cheat devices and everything about the future is unallowed. PC is better but meh whatever.

*shruggs* I only use Serebii for their PokéDex and AttackDex for RolePlays. I think PC has better layouts and nicer people, anyways. Well, I've never been to Serebii Forums, but I know PC is nicer. c:

I registered on Serebii, but never posted. Still their website is awesome.

Anyway, I would say PC is the best out their, it has so much thing many other forum lack. The best, in my opinion, being the Rom Hacking and the Game Development areas.

I hate Serebii's sig rules. And the preset avatars.

But I think PC is a generally nicer, more friendly enviroment.

I honestly agree. Their sig rules are annoying, plus you can't work with CSS or change font sizes >.> And I'd like to see more avatars.

And PC is really much nicer. I think people only voted Serebii because of all the info. it gave on Pokemon (no matter how many grammatical errors I find on the main site >.>).

I don't think anyone voted, it's based on posts I guess. They have like 6 million something, and we have 4 million something.

Lol, look at the message I get from the serebii forums:
The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later.

I think PC has a wonderful environment.
I have been on LOTS of Pokemon forums.
This on is by far my favorite.
I'm not sure why people here are nicer than people in other places.. but they really are!

Lol, if you actually wanted PC to get to the top, then you're competing with friggin' 4chan, who surprisingly, is only at number 2.

But anyway, I prefer PC for its layouts, nicer people, etc. Somethings Serebii does better and somethings PC does better. It isn't really a competition, I would much rather have two big forums than one.

You know how many times I get that a day? >.> I hate Serebii for it, and I'm sure a lot of other people agree with me.

Do you ever see PC with a server error every hour? Nope. Unless your computer has viruses... But that's not PC's problem, is it?

Edit: PC is 65 for number of pageviews. I suppose that may be a good thing? XD

Big-Boards simply ranks the size of a board. Since Serebii gets way more posts than we do and has a higher volume of traffic, they're higher on the list. It has nothing to do with the quality of either board--simply quantity.

That said, I've always preferred PC. Nothing at all about SPPf clicks for me, hence why I don't even bother to maintain an account there.

I actually like PC more then serebii, I mean there other chat section is so strict and makes no sense.

It's because we're the shizz and that's all there is to it. It goes for all sections here. We don't ban people because their signature is too colorful or some other reason that's complete nonsense. On top of that, our skins (and members) are sexier.

But, yeah. In all seriousness, there really isn't anything to compare us with Serebii with since we're too totally different communities with totally different members (aside from the many who are members of both communities) and with a completely opposite side of staff.

I know, even Derick Destler is much Stricter than Morkula o_0'. Scary.

They didn't even accept my new name on the chat. Nothing really makes sense there...

I'm going to be sticking to PC for a while now. I don't care if SPPF get more posts, they are still very out of range

So, maybe I should check out that forum thingy.

Everything about Serebii is just plain bleh...they need a major revamp in many ways.

Not to mention, at least on PC there are plenty of helpful, understanding individuals when it comes to battling, trading, team building, and what not. I posted a very standard team for an RMT on Serebii that got ripped to shreds to the point where they were like 'have you ever even battled before?' XD I was like...wow. Um, thanks for all that support.

PokeCommunity is just what it says: a Community. AND A SICK ONE AT THAT. =]

As a side note, we rose to number 350! (unless that's one of those 'changes quite quickly every day' ranking boards.)

Serebii has way too many problems. I gave up on it long ago.

Stats don't really mean much, by the way.

Yes, I knew about it. If you actually look at the footer of this page you'll notice an arrow in front of the copyright notices that actually link to Big Boards. =P

Go PokeCommunity! I think I posted like this long time ago. And what is Serebii anyway?

I like PC better than Serebii. The skins on serebii hurt my eyes, and the server is always busy. I can't tell who the moderators/admins/super moderators are because there username is the exact same color as normal members o_O

It is annoying to go on serebii forums, though the actual site gives good information.

funny how my sig on serebii has three different font sizes.

the sig rules are there to prevent really large banner and unecessary space from appearing. but yes, it's quite annoying when you need to split your banner into 3 pieces or if your banner is all gay and sparkly with all these colors (which is attractive); you can only have 5 colors when you need 8.

anyway, it's no surprise that serebii's a lot higher. after all, it's populated by trolls, angry emo kids, elitist cliques and whatnot. and this mass of nubs. anyway, i differ; i prefer serebii because of the trolls and mean people and less tolerance, as that's also the sort of person that i am. it's also more strict, so it's fun to watch the drama and other people suffer, 'cause they're not favoured like some members (like myself) are. corrupt, eh?

though i really wish they had custom avies... and better skins. well, the dark skin is nice, but still. that's like the only.

also, above poster, their usernames tend to be bold/italic/both, so it's pretty easy to tell :x

also, it's nice that pc has such a high ranking. though i thought it'd be a little higher...

All of us here at Poke Community have really helped get our forum so far so I think we all deserve a round of applause!

It's probably way behind oth PC and Serebii in terms of post count, but obviously that has nothing to do with quality haha.

Well Jorah that's true...I mean the manga forum there might not be as active as here but it does surprisingly have the Pokemon 7 manga (Think of Magic Kaito or Detective Conan)
I never really looked in there as much as in Serebii or here in PC so I'm not sure about the quality...

Me too. I cannot stand the skins on Serebii. I never go on the forum, just the site with all the information regarding a moveset or something. :]

But to be honest, I would've thought PC would be higher than that.

Hmm I think Serebii has that ranking as it has it's own website. Should PokeCommunity ever have one, expect us to move up a lot.

I just learned that Serebii locks up threads talking about the G/S/C remake, what kind of rule is that?

Is this a "Why PC is better than SPPf" thread? Sure seems like it.

And PC is better because I'm here.

I'm glad that PokeCommunity comes in on the Big Board rankings, but I believe it's better than Serebii because most the members here are friendly, and not everyone pesters people about posting "correctly".
