How about having affiliates on this site; such as fan sites, Pokédex sites and Pokémon game sites. Then they will like to you and then the forum will get more members.

I think this is a pretty fool proof plan :)

We used to have affiliates but really they were kinda pointless and not needed seeing as how no one bothered clicking on them.

Well they are more for the other site, not this one....

Because this site is well known it already gets a lot of traffic. And if you have it so people can apply to become affiliated with this site there will be a lot more traffic :)

PC is pretty well known around the interwebz when it comes to Pokemon. So chances are if we affiliate with someone it'll likely be some small site/forum where no one knows and it'll be helping them and not us. With 200,000 members, and 6,000,000 posts... I don't think we're hurting.

I don't mean to dwell in the past, but I was talking to a PC vet and they said PC may have lost some affiliates due to the behavior of a site admin from one of the affiliates.

The answer is very likely to be no. Quite simply PC does not have an affiliate program any longer, it was canceled for good reasons and I doubt you'd ever have a chance unless you could convince every admin here to agree. That being said this is a bad idea nonetheless. PC does not need to affiliate itself with other websites.

What was "affiliation" in the old days was simply Community Sites. 3 of them, I believe. PPN, Seafoam Islands, and some other site I don't remember. PokeCommunity was sort of a joint operation. But of course, the community sites were dropped because PC was actually running strong independently.

Or at least that's what I can remember >__> I feel like I missed something.

The point is, if you Google "Pokemon Forums", Pokecommunity is the first result. There is 0 need for affiliation of any sort at that point.
