I am just wondering if we will have a main Website in the near future for these forums so we will have news and other things besides just the forums alone. In fact it might drive in more members too. Also will there be a bandwidth increase as sometimes the bandwidth gets overloaded and no one can make it to the site for up to 3 or more hours at times. It is a suggestion. Also if we have a website we may even have a better bandwidth as well too. Just some ideas I had. Thanks.

About News:

I've been thinking about that, too, but in my thoughts I was limiting it to only one thread. I've also found the perfect source for everyday's news as well. But I'm sure that others have thought about it as well, and since nothing is done about it yet, it might as well not be a good idea after all. Still, I don't see why you think that making a news forum will bring new members to the site, especially when it's about pokemon.

About the bandwith increase:

I suppose the staff will answer about that, but I'm guessing that they can't do something about it (because if they could, they would have done, no doubt about it).

Why should people using the internet use us, a home page, or just come here to ask questions in our threads when they could just go to serebii or find a search engine result.

Do they not teach internet usage in your/their/any school?

I do not see how having a main site to go along with the forums would decrease bandwidth use? Then the site would be leeching off the forums' bandwidth (and vice versa) and we'd be in an even tighter spot than we are now. o_O

At any rate, we used to have a collection of Community Sites for PC but they were discontinued the other year because we could never find any more, the ones we had were rarely (if ever) updated, and it just wasn't working out. Turns out PC can function just fine as a stand-alone forum so I doubt we'll be adding any sort of news portal or informational aspect. There are plenty of sites out there already who do a better job than we probably would.

It was just a thought guys. I did not realize you guys had a site or two at one point.

Ewww....Wikia. We have nothing to do with those guys. We're a fully independent wiki.

As for being owned by us....not unless PPN has a much lower asking price than I'm aware of. ;)

A mainsite has its positives and negatives.

The positive is more members.

The negative: More people registering, then being idle/SPAM possiblitly.

And, it makes us unique. You know?

We seriously don't need a "main site" to bring in more members. One of the main reasons we got rid of community sites here on PC was because the forum supports its self in terms of member growth, etc. Word of mouth, search engine indexing, and so on goes a looong way. (If you google for "Pokemon forum", we're the top result.)

It's just not really needed and it's more hassle than its worth. PC houses a ton of information, particularly about ROM Hacking and game development, just in threads and posts alone. All of that is indexed by search engines so in a way we could be classified as an informational site already.

Actually, PC is on the top of the list whenever someone searches for something related to ROM Hacking and related stuff too. xD;

I don't think that we need any main site just for bringing in more members. I completely agree with Ausaudriel here. PC is a HUGE database in itself due to the large number of highly informative posts and threads here. ;3
