Staff had such a discussion before actually on that idea and others (this year in fact, and before that), but there's some issues (e.g. mixing between different hardware for games, varying game mechanics, etc.). Pros and cons with each set up, although personally I prefer the current one, and there's always one section that has to be at the bottom. I think it makes much more sense to have newer games on the top as that's what people are playing, rather than a mix of new and old everywhere.
(Personally as well I'd rather XY/ORAS and etc. be higher than Pokemon General...)
If you grouped by region in main series gaming I think the first few forums would be more active as a result. Like say ORAS and third generation were merged to be only Hoenn Gaming. Like you could easily make a thread 'Contests, now and then' and 'Did Steven really improve' etc. I get grouping by generation but sometimes it feels like the first three generation forums would especially benefit from it. Knowing that you can discuss whatever comparisons and not have to be confused about things in the forum and go generation to generation from the same region would be really cool. Just a thought. :) Plus that way third gen would gain off ORAS and XY won't have to be retired into ORAS eventually. You just seem like the most relevant person to tell the thought to lol
Why not?? You were right in front of me post wise... and thus the idea was inspired! Sucks about the joke though re: being badly received. I don't really like how both sides acted (late to party and original complaints) but oh well. :c
If my posts inspired at least one person I did well.
