&Your effort was valueless, sorry, princess~.
"There Are Encounters As Well As Farewells."
Before you all ask if I'm leaving I'm not. Don't worry. You're stuck with me! >:D
Here's the thing. People come and people go. People's interests come and go and people's interest and love for a Pokemon forum come and go.
That being said there is always a new Pokemon forum around the corner and people turn their attention that specific one. People leave a big one and move to a small one for a little while.
And that's okay.
It's always okay. The internet is becoming bigger and as it gets bigger more people will move around to other websites and some people will even move here. Just like homes on the internet always change so does a website's popularity.
That being said his place is extremely big and popular and that's thanks to the staff to say in the least. Ten years is a lot of time to make a forum huge.
Eventually there will be a million people here and who knows? Old members that claimed to have left forever will come back.
Remember: "There are encounters as well as farewells." and there is also coming back.
