Pokémon Groups seems to have been doing well as of late! A couple new clubs, activity in older ones, actual discussion happening... this is good, this is good. There is always room for improvement, but this is good! Thank you, everyone who's been active in there lately! ^__^

Of course, along with the active clubs, there are a few that need a bit of revitalization. Most aren't in serious danger yet, but they're good clubs and I would hate to see them forgotten.
In order from most in danger to least:

- Monkey Pokémon Fanclub
- Café Mocha
- Ground Type Fanclub

I'm sure there are some people out there that can contribute to these clubs. ^_^

Oh and yesterday I decided Pokémon Groups isn't as popular as it could be because it doesn't have a good acronym. idk

Um what else... FF&W has got a Fic of the Month contest thing set up if you all your like to check it out. Don't vote for mine plz thx.

I updated my gallery... comments are always appreciated.

Even though people are posting in things like the Dent/Cilan fanclub and the Team Rocket FC, it's pretty much the same people all the time. Fresh faces are exciting. js

Club owners should keep up with their clubs because I hate having to bother Hiiro about updating member lists. ._.

Uhh... that's all I think. For now.

tl;dr I'm still pushing Pokemon Groups and other things.

EDIT: you all should visit Shipping Debates! I knew I forgot something...

    You need to get more active in PA again, instead of just trolling shipping debates. xD

    I would, but I don't watch the dub and I wanted to wait till after the Don battles. You'll see me in a few days with an as-I-watch review of BW045. <3

    I wish more people would post interesting things in SD though...

    Pokemon General can get outta way and let Pokemon Groups have PG xD

    I was really sad when I came back to Pokemon Groups because it used to be heck active!

    I guess one thing that has been making the section inactive is the amount of people who make a club and don't update and come back as often as some of us do.

    I was thinking maybe bring back some of the popular groups from like 2 years ago (I can remember like Toddler's Playground (and other groups which can't really remember their names atm xD) such - Hiiro made TP didn't he, I can't remember?) Since almost almost all the types have groups maybe a few interesting groups would make it active? Apart from that the whole regularly posting in each group helps a lot AND I MUST STOP THOSE GROUPS FROM DYING

    didn't realize I wrote that much till I finished xD

    If you can take on all those responsibilities, then I say do it! Pokémon Groups does need more of a variety in clubs. And still some kind of good acronym (getting tired of typing it out every time tbh). We could be Pokémon Clubs, but that one gets confusing too. :<

    Pokémon Fanclubs could do fine, it's basically what it is.

    I always thought Other Clubs should just be "Fanclubs" and leave it at that; I've never liked the "other" bit on any of the sections. idk.

    The main problem with Pokemon Groups is that there would be owners that you create a group, but then they would just leave and never return. :( What Pokemon Groups really need is active owners. Active owners = a more active club with active members = more active section, is what I've noticed.

    This is true, yes. And I wish it were not the case that people would neglect their clubs. /was actually thinking of going to bother inactive owners

    Good luck with that. Some of them for some of the clubs haven't even been on since June. For those cases I'd say just leave the club alone until it dies so someone who will be more active remakes it. ;^^

    Yeah... I dunno. Some of the clubs we don't really want to be lost. Like the TR fanclub (not much can be done bout that one though). And I personally don't want to see Triple Trouble go... :/

    Again, you can try for some of them. Others might be pointless though because of who the host is. Maybe for those two clubs someone can rise up as a new owner/co-owner or something.

    You just need to realize that it's not the owner's fault alone, but sometimes (if not most!) it's the members too. Take Wolves Hideout for an example. Wolflare (and me I guess) tried to make it active so many times but whenever he posts new topics/events/etc there's only about 3 memebers out of 30+ who posts till a new topic is made next week or two. It's obviously harder to handle a club with inactive members, and I should know.
    The TR club is STILL active despite Regen leaving. Why? Because it has one of the most active members than any other club. But really, we can't do anything about that. :(

    Spino makes good points. Members do make the club go 'round, or whatever- I've been the last poster in my own clubs for a good length of time while my members don't pay attention to it. ;_;

    I see a lot of the new discussion topics getting few replies in any club, which is why in my own I tried to avoid "discussion topics" and instead go with the "natural conversation" method. I've found that to be better, but even then the club kind of dies if members decide to stop posting.

    I wouldn't be adverse to fully taking on Triple Trouble (currently co-owner technically), but Nutella comes on every so often and I'm sure would be responsible for it if new people ever came in there. -__- And the TR fanclub... we just don't wanna lose it I guess? Idk. There's currently an election for Boss going on, so whatever the new one decides.

    Good point. It depends on the club I guess. Some clubs it's due to an owner who have gone and neglected it, while with some it's more the members. What could help is if people elaborated a little more on their answer so 'natural conversations' could come out of it.

    I think a good idea for clubs is to have both. 'natural conversation', and then perhaps if things start dying down, bring up a discussion topic to perhaps bring on more conversations. A good mix of both.

    Indeed. It's kinda like that older topic in OVP, about how we could actually have a bit more discussion in there...

    It is what should be strived for, yes. Hmm.... /goes to bother Hiiro about adding and rephrasing things to club tips
