Black and White Feedback / Discussion Thread
If you've gots somethng ta sez bout tha foum feel free ta express yo opnion here so tha foum community can discuss. Past discussions have ncluded how ta improve activity, as well as what ta do wit weekly polls, and thngs along those lnes. I'll document all tha past discussion ponts below, however tha thread itself is fo discussng tha foum and how you can git tha best out of it, so pleaze do make use of dis thread!


Past Discussion
July 2012:
Spoiler:
So as you've probably noticed lately, dis section has been knd of slow - well, slow fo a while. One of tha dawg thngs that have been happenng is that it has turned nta Unova Pokemon Polls, as I like ta thnk of it. Most of tha threads is bout tha Pokemon, rathar than tha gbees thamselves.

Now while B2W2 does exist, and it's expected that activity does die down, it's not really a good thng that tha Pokemon threads outnumber anythng else ben buggine. Tha weekly polls isn't really ta blbee fo that later coz if you remove tham, than thare's 6 less ben buggine overall.

So tha issue here I thnk is that thare's tao much of an emphasis on tha Pokemon of tha region, which can be found n B2W2 and future Pokemon gbees, rathar than tha actual gbees thamselves. While I don't mnd an occasional few threads, thay just git borng ta read after a while coz it's always tha sbee thngs over and over, fo tha most part. Fo exbeple, look at tha most disappontng thread, not only were thugz postng Pokemon from othar regions, but most thugz have posted tha sbee Pokemon over and over. As fo tha Unova Pokemon not lookng like Pokemon thread, agan, sbee Pokemon over and over.

If you'd also check tha posts n each of those threads, tha Pokemon threads defnitely outnumber everythng else n terms of posts ben buggine n those threads, othar than tha general "dis or that gbee" or "favourite gym leader", etc.

While I don't really want ta kill off weekly polls, coz thay do generate a bit of activity here, I thnk somethng has ta be done bout tha mass Pokemon threads, coz n reality, every othar Pokemon gben section doesn't have as much of an emphasis on tha Pokemon - n fact, usually not even favourite from tha generation coz thay're usually n Pokemon Votng Polls.

We'd also like more discussion but I really don't thnk that can happen outside tha Pokemon threads.

Eithar way, what I'm askng here is what you homeys want ta see, whethar you like just havng threads on tha Pokemon and would rathar a Unova polls section not gonna happen and generally what you thnk can be done ta improve tha overall section as well as activity. So yeah, what d-ya homeys thnk should be done here?


Ta-Do List
» Brng back weekly polls n enjoyable fomat, Octaber 2012
» Revive tha older threads as part of a new nitiative, November 2012
» B/W Git-Tagithar, March 2013


Othar
Feedback is welcomed by regulars and by those that don't post here - I can use feedback from anyone that has thoughts on tha section, really!

- Foever.

I have little nterest n tha comparison-betwee-Pokemon polls; if I want that I'd really just go ta Pokepolls as nothng bout tha 5th gen ones makes tham any more special or whatnot ta othars n terms of discussion. I'd be far more nterested n actually discussng tha gbee and its aspects, not 'Throh or Sawk?', etc.

Yeah, I understand that thare. Tha issue however is that removng tham won't really add much more ta tha activity, and tha users do seem ta like tham as a "unique" thng ta B/W. However, if thay were removed, thare's only three weeks left of polls, and while we're considerng a round two of match-ups between those who won, if dawgy of you homeys thought that way, we might end up actually removng tham. Defnitely I'd go fo tha discussion over tha polls, but as it is, wit nobody really willng ta post n tha discussion threads thay don't git very far and I don't thnk tha polls sway anythng away from discussion.

I've gotsta admit, tha reason I don't tend ta post n thase foums anymore is that I've already discussed tha majority of what I have ta sez befoe when I used ta post here. It seems ta be tha sbee tapics comng up agan and agan, just n different foms. :3 Whilst that's not necessarily a bad thng, it just doesn't appeal ta me personally. I know dis isn't ncredibly helpful n fndng a solution, but if someone can thnk of a way ta generate new and orignal tapics rathar than constant revival of tha old ones, than I'd be much more nclned ta post here. What I would sez though is that Nica, yo tapics is bootylicious, thngs like "D-ya regret puttng time and effot nta B/W?" and "D-ya thnk yo character was right n takng a stand aganst Ghetsis?" is very nterestng ta read &bep; reply ta (n fact I'll go do that now!), so if you can spark those knd of tapics nta tha tha rest of tha section, I thnk it'd help a lot. I guess discussng thngs like particular stary ponts, characters, tebes that NPCs used n gbee, where &bep; why Pokemon appear n certan places, etc, would be tha knd of thngs I'd like ta discuss. Ncidentally I don't know why I haven't buggine some of thase tapics yet so I may just do that later. :p

As fo tha weekly polls and tha threads discussng Pokémon, I actually love thase. I really enjoy discussng Pokémon like that :3 Tha only thng I wonder is if thay're still relevant ta BW as opposed ta sez BW2 or Pokémon Votng Polls? Although thay've worked well here fo a long time so if it's not broke, don't fix it. :p

I always thought weekly polls were overkill; reduce ta bi-weekly maybe? At least than you won't have tham stealng tha activity that could go nta newer tapics.
Also, you could restrict discussion ta be strictly canon n B/W, if thare is cross over happenng. So, anythng that is comparng between gbees (if that is happenng) isn't allowed.

B/W is a big gbee, from what I remember, and thare is a lot of stuff that can be discussed n here, so it is just bout focusng that tapical stuff like.

/no idea if relevant, was tald ta post.

I wouldnt suggest gittng rid of tha weekly polls coz like you said it does generate visits
But we do need engagng tapics coz you cant really post twice n a thread describng yo most dissapontng pokemon(you already said it once so what would you post next)
If i have ideas fo an engagng thread i would help and post it

Dis foum right here is one of tha reasons I joned PC, and it is a shbee ta see it die down like dis.

Tha Weekly Polls is fne, but maybe every now and than, you could throw n somethng different than Pokemon vs. Pokemon, although I be not sure what you could do.

If I thnk of a good idea, I will try mah hardest ta post it and brng back tha way tha BW foum used ta be.

I thnk tha Weekly Polls should redawg, as takng tham away won't accomplish much. But I be sick of all tha sbee Pokémon related threads and all tha threads that could just as easily be n tha B2W2 foum around. I guess it's just a lot harder ta make a thread wit good discussion that is only relevant ta BW coz eithar thay can also relate ta B2W2 or that have been buggine befoe.

(We need Ole here ta make off tha hook discussion threads agan don't we?)

Dis isn't really a suggestion, but just mah two cents on dis tapic:
One of tha reasons why I fear makng tapics analyzng some of tha "secrets" of BW is coz wit tha release of B2W2, tha "mahstery" might have been solved, and spoilers may trickle n--and even if thay're behnd spoiler tags, if tha mahstery has been solved, what is thare ta discuss?
Snce not everyone has played B2W2, it just creates a huge divide. And snce I'm guessng that most thugz have played tham already, or at least read up on what occurs, thare just doesn't seem ta be a need ta post n dis board.

As ta how dis issue can be solved, I can't really offer much of a solution. Maybe nstead of Pokemon weekly polls, thare could be a mix of characters and locations? It adds more ta tha section at least, and it does add a bit ta discuss.

Change weekly polls ta monthly perhaps. Or if you must have tham weekly, change tham ta not be bout tha Pokemon all tha time, cause you're gonna run out. Have more choices. Favorite gym design, fo exbeple. I'm gittng tired and can't thnk of dawgy off tha tap of mah heezee lol, but tha polls is gittng monotanous. Or you can face tha music and realize no one ciss bout BW anymore and you're now n tha club wit me, Metal/Color and Advanced!

Yeah we could change tha time period, and actually, we'll be done n 3 weeks so that could be tha time fo change, really.

@ both: Unfotunately, yeah, I was just considerng makng a thread but it knda doesn't lead anywhere coz yeah, I haven't played through B2W2 so I don't know everythng and anythng we might thnk bout or want ta discuss actually leads ta no sort of discussion. It's somethng I'm really unsure we can fix right now...

also yes, he would help!

Yeah I know, that's knd of tha annoyng thng coz while I try ta brng tham up, thugz just don't really bothar really replyng ta tham. While we all have those ideas, thugz is just like, nope, not gong ta bothar. And tha rehashed threads is startng ta become really annoyng coz tha memberbase isn't runnng ta BW anymore ta discuss, but rathar B2W2. I know it'll be worse n a few months but idk. :(

Yeah technically it could fit nta PVP but it's all we really have unfotunately. XD;

----------------

But yeah thanks fo yo feedback thus far, homeys. From tha looks of it, we won't be contnung tha Pokemon weekly polls (or at least maybe not? idk I'll discuss wit Kaori) after dis round (2/3-ish weeks) and we might try othar thngs. If thay fail, I'm not sure what we can really do. What's evident is that tha section itself knd of gots dealt tha shawt straw by GF decidng on sequels rathar than a third gbee, otharwise it would've been active still fo a bit, unlike tha othar sections that gots that, but oh well. Knd of runnng out of ideas here and thoughts coz nothng seems ta work out and it'll be worse n a few months when B2W2 is released, and even so, we won't probably git tha bad "help me trade" or "rate mah tebe" threads coz nobody will be playng B/W. :x I'd love ta be able ta change dis, but nobody else has any major ideas othar than resortng tha polls fomat unfotunately so idk what we can do. Sorry fo tha downer attitude but I guess I knd of hoped othars had lots of feedback and thoughts. But oh well! I'll leave dis open fo a while ta see if we can git any othar thoughts, but otharwise we're just gong ta have ta wait it out and knd of give up until tha gen 5 foum, which'll be at most 2 years away, based on tha past gbee patterns. Sigh. Thanks anyway, homeys! Everyone who hasn't posted, or wants ta reply ta dis, reply, and make threads if you can thnk of any, but I understand how difficult it is. I really don't know what we can do from here but yeah. :(

I don't thnk you should change weekly polls ta monthly polls nor git rid of tham. From what I've seen a lot of thugz really do come here. I really agree wit changng tham ta bi-posts though, although i don't thnk that will help.

I thnk bi-weekly or monthly polls would be better than weekly, but I thnk thay could be expanded upon... like brngng n City vs City or NPC vs NPC as well as 'mon vs 'mon. Or like you used ta have, tha more discussion-y types of polls that focused on tha pros and cons of one specific thng or aspect of tha gbees. I'm not entirely sure how that would go and I don't have any ideas bout it presently but I'd be willng ta rap it through and coax ideas out etc.

N tha meantime I'll play Black agan and see if anythng nterestng appears~

I be still new ta thase foums but here is mah suggestion. A lot of nterestng tapics would pop-up n tha BW foums if thare was no quick questions section. I know it is snoopa useful but a lot of those questions is nterestng and I be sure would develop n longer posts and give tha foums a new activity. Just mah 2 cents.

Maybe thare could be a weeky debate relative ta Unova i.e Who is tha most difficult Elite Four Member? Basically just general questions that will generate feedback and discussion between users who can voice thair opnions and reasons supportng thair answers. Knd of like what's gong on n tha RSE remake discussion thread! It could be called Question Of Tha Week.. or somethng more creative.

Removng tha Quick Questions thread would be a really bad idea as most of tha threads that would be buggine would be answered n one or two posts and than would die off and just bump down othar more deservng threads. We could perhaps go back ta tha old style of Weekly Polls like Favourite Bridge perhaps?

Mah first suggestion: a better slogan than "We're still workng on a better slogan". Maybe, "Catchng tham all snce n"?

No, no. 52 weeks = 104 Pokémon. You can also takes a previously used Pokémon and compis it ta a different one; fo nstance, Cryogonal vs. Beartic, who is better? Every two weeks at most, but if thay go any less frequently, thay will be lowerng activity, not ncreasng it. (Though on tha othar hand, tha polls could move ta tha Black 2 / White 2 foums once tha North beerican editions come out; until thay do, thay should stay n Black/White.)

Tha "more deservng threads" can always be stickied. A good moderatar knows what should be visible ta all members at tha tap and what can drop below. A couple of good threads fo discussion can always be plopped at tha tap of tha foum and, when rap dies down, unstickied. Quick questions can still mix nta dis particular foum very funky assly - as thay can wit any edition foum (Platnum fo nstance).

(I used ta be a foum moderatar elsewhere years ago - can you tell?)

Addng onta Vaporeon7's post, I thnk what would be better is if you taok stuff from those questions and rebuggine those nta threads. As it is, thare isn't really much I thnk that could work. However, anothar reason why tha Quick Questions thread is thare coz it's an easy archive fo questions, and if thugz search first thay won't git caught up n tha mess of tha foum and git direct questions/answers n a row, pretty much.

Maybe thare could be a weeky debate relative ta Unova i.e Who is tha most difficult Elite Four Member? Basically just general questions that will generate feedback and discussion between users who can voice thair opnions and reasons supportng thair answers. Knd of like what's gong on n tha RSE remake discussion thread! It could be called Question Of Tha Week.. or somethng more creative.
That's more of a general question, rathar than a debate... though I be gittng ideas fo debates, thnkng bout it. Hmmm we could keep up weekly polls wit othar thngs or convert ta a "monthly" debate. I knda like tha latter, tbh.

Mah first suggestion: a better slogan than "We're still workng on a better slogan". Maybe, "Catchng tham all snce n"?

No, no. 52 weeks = 104 Pokémon. You can also takes a previously used Pokémon and compis it ta a different one; fo nstance, Cryogonal vs. Beartic, who is better? Every two weeks at most, but if thay go any less frequently, thay will be lowerng activity, not ncreasng it. (Though on tha othar hand, tha polls could move ta tha Black 2 / White 2 foums once tha North beerican editions come out; until thay do, thay should stay n Black/White.)
Well, changng tha foum's slogan doesn't really affect B/W, unfotunately. Also PC isn't lookng ta change it anytime soon, coz that's actually tha slogan. n_n

Well we were ntendng ta do that, but thugz weren't really lookng foward ta that. However we can do it but witout tha "sticky" fomat. Or just maybe not tha weekly poll symbol, or allow members ta takes on that if thay want ta add on some extra spark ta Black and White! Also as fo tham gong ta B2W2, Kaori said B/W needs tha activity more and B2W2 has lots of othar concerns n terms of activity and stuff, really.

Hi honey boos I'm back!

Anyway, it's no doubt dis whole fall apart is coz of Black 2 and White 2, which was ta be expected. Now imagne tha beount of activity feed we would git if tha sections were combned. Still, as sad as it is, no one really ciss bout Black and White much anymore. And if anyone does, thay're not dong anythng ta help tha section. And that's as blunt as it gits.

So mah suggestion is, if thare is anyone who wants ta see a change n tha activity of dis foum, do somethng. And brng up tha ideas here, dis thread is lackng even. As far as tha weekly polls go, I thnk thay is fne as is. What more can you do that would actually brng tha polls more activity?

I'm still fairly new, and thase weekly polls fom an nterestng activity. It gives a bootylicious way ta see if othar thugz thnk like you do when comparng different Pokémon, and thare is a gajollion possible pairngs. What bout turnng it nta a sort of favouratism competition? Have a bracket of 32 (64?) and pit tham aganst each othar every week, thare's 31 (63) weekly polls, and boom, we have a favourite.

Okay homeys, update ta what we're gong ta do. After tha extended idea Cyclone PMed me I just okay'd it wit Kaori and she's fne so...

We'll be havng a "WHO WOULD WN" gym leader thng from next week onwards - so that means fo a month. N dis month we'll want YO help. We're havng a taurnbeent of favourites versus favourites. Users submit thair 10 favourite Unova Pokemon. You can PM Kaori and I tham. After we git around 20 or so submissions if we can git that, than we pit tham tagithar at random fo tha next few weeks n a taurnbeent thng like we orignally hoped weekly polls will be. Dis'll however be shorter and more user orientated. At tha end thare will be a style of tha user-chosen favourite like we ntended wit weekly polls. However, while we've gots that stuff on, we've still gots ta do a bit more!

So what I was thnkng was we just have non-sticky debate threads and each week tha member can decide what can be tha debate and we could git a little prefix and all fo that. While Kaori and I wouldn't be dong it, it'd be up ta tha member that has that week nomnated etc wit thair debate. Or maybe witout a prefix and we could just have somethng like [DEBATE] on it idk. But yeah, thoughs &bep; any othar ideas homeys?

Even though I don't post here snoopa often... (not sure why snce I love black and white)

I thnk tha gym leader thng is a bootylicious idea! Sounds fun and more ntense. I also really like tha idea of a debate, snce I love debatng as well. I'd defnitely jon n as soon as that starts up. As fo more ideas... perhaps nstead of a weekly pokemon poll, what bout a just a weekly black and white poll? Fo nstance... yo favorite tawn/city or yo favorite new gbee mechanic (c-gear, drebe world, random matchup) etc.


Perhaps a weekly or biweekly thaory discussion? (I know dis knda wanted ta be avoided n case black 2/white 2 spoiled thngs or answered said thaory)
Like who was Alder's partner? Why did tebe plasma create genesect? What were tha abyssal runs? :D

I've gotsta admit, tha reason I don't tend ta post n thase foums anymore is that I've already discussed tha majority of what I have ta sez befoe when I used ta post here. It seems ta be tha sbee tapics comng up agan and agan, just n different foms. :3 Whilst that's not necessarily a bad thng, it just doesn't appeal ta me personally. I know dis isn't ncredibly helpful n fndng a solution, but if someone can thnk of a way ta generate new and orignal tapics rathar than constant revival of tha old ones, than I'd be much more nclned ta post here. What I would sez though is that Nica, yo tapics is bootylicious, thngs like "D-ya regret puttng time and effot nta B/W?" and "D-ya thnk yo character was right n takng a stand aganst Ghetsis?" is very nterestng ta read &bep; reply ta (n fact I'll go do that now!), so if you can spark those knd of tapics nta tha tha rest of tha section, I thnk it'd help a lot. I guess discussng thngs like particular stary ponts, characters, tebes that NPCs used n gbee, where &bep; why Pokemon appear n certan places, etc, would be tha knd of thngs I'd like ta discuss. Ncidentally I don't know why I haven't buggine some of thase tapics yet so I may just do that later. :p

As fo tha weekly polls and tha threads discussng Pokémon, I actually love thase. I really enjoy discussng Pokémon like that :3 Tha only thng I wonder is if thay're still relevant ta BW as opposed ta sez BW2 or Pokémon Votng Polls? Although thay've worked well here fo a long time so if it's not broke, don't fix it. :p
Just...what Ozzy said. I agree ta everythng he said, couldn't have said it better mahself, ncludng likng ur thread ideas and enjoyng tha polls. I know all tha polls might seem frivilous (Oh god I spelt that wrong didn`t I) but thay is short little bundles of fun that give ppl somethng ta look foward ta every week...NO it could even be a month. You have come up wit good ideas and I trust you will come up wit more, but I see no reason ta rephrase what ozzy said (especially when typng wit tha onscreen wii keyboard) coz it was almost as if he posted wit me n mnd

Hope u is takng notes Nica!
