I'm considering removing or condensing and merging some forums. Any forum with less than 100,000 posts sets a poor example and impression on new members interested in joining active sections. We have a steady join rate, but the amount of people who stay aren't very high when you compare the numbers. It's obvious that the post count in forums don't satisfy the new members, so that's why I'm planning to do this.

Since people didn't take too kindly to my mod reviews (which are still in progress, I'm nearly done. I just need a few more things and then I'll post the results for all of you to see.), anyone with a forum less active than 100,000 posts should plead your case here.

...you do know that includes Black and White, right?

Like, I am totally for getting rid of some of the crappy sections like Game Dev (Yessssssss) and the older gaming forums and TCG, but can you really get away with getting rid of B&W?

In other news, TAKE THAT *****ES OVP IS SAFE 8D

Yeah, yeah. Yet my inclusion to game dev will make me millions some day. Other Voting Polls inclusion won't get you a job anywhere ever.

The Black and White forum is exempt being the current up-to-date generation forum. Both Forever and Kaori, aside from their lack of partnership skills (which is going to contribute to my re-examination of their performance as moderators), are safe for now.

1) I have a job, and I'll be able to keep a job, tyvm. Also, don't forget I am a writer! I have the potential to make millions, too.
2) I highly doubt your silly little games will ever make you money.

Honestly, I think we could probably do this for under 50k. Or even 75k and just let the threads from the extra forums fall into OC like they used to. But 100k is a bit high.

Are we you going to delete this forum too? Just wondering.

Oh and the HQ too.

These are important forums on PC, but I don't think we really need them. HQ and the lounge are completely unnecessary to me. After all, my opinion matters, and I have to make the final decision around here.

Because this whole suggestion sounds like a joke.

If it were a joke, Lightning wouldn't have replied. If it were a joke, I wouldn't have posted this at all. Jokes have no place in this forum as far as I'm concerned. It's for serious discussion on forum matters, and that's all there is to it. If you disagree, that's fine, so be it. But that's what it's here for.

Quality over quantity should be the standard, not how many posts a section had. Does that mean all of the newer but active sections should go because they haven't been around long enough to attract a huge arbitrary number of posts? O_o

Yes. The newer forums just attract stupid members here and I'd really rather not have that. Any good staff member wouldn't want that.

Exactly which forums would this affect? I'm too lazy to check because I know both my forums have over 100k.

OK, so with the 100k rule, we are getting rid of or condensing:

Announcements
Questions & Feedback
Staff Lounge
VIP Forum
Style Studio
Black & White
Competitive Battling Center
Pokemon Gaming Central
Challenges
Advance Generation Games
Metal and Color Generation Games
Spinoff Games
Pokemon Anime
Pokemon Trading Card Game
Fan Fiction and Writing
Game Development
Video Gaming
Computers & Technology
Japanese Entertainment
Culture & Media
Tabletop Games


That's 21 forums, some of which are incredibly important to the fabric of the community. And for what? So that the numbers look prettier?

That's ridiculous. You're ridiculous. But nothing the mods have to say seems to matter to you anyway, so I'm not really sure why you bothered to post this here at all.

Yes, support the removal of the section that's promoting literacy.

Lerroux, stop making me post here. It's ****ing annoying to have to see this stuff when again, I am TRYING TO STAY AWAY.

Either way, glad B/W is exempt but you are NOT removing CBC. S&M combined probably had over that amount so it should be exempt too. And if you remove it, I will persuade PPN to remove you. :)

WHOA WHOA WHOA LET'S NOT BE HASTY NOW. DELETING 21 ****ING FORUMS WILL BE QUITE A LOSS TO THE COMMUNITY.

Seriously, that's 64% of the forums visible from the index! 64%! DELETING THAT MUCH OF THE FORUM IS INSANE AND GIVES THE IMPRESSION OF A TOXIC ATMOSPHERE AT THE WEBSITE! IT WILL SCARE OFF THE BEST AND SMARTEST USERS AND ONLY THE WORST OF THE WORST WILL REMAIN!

Well this is an administrative matter. Not a moderator matter.

But half of the point of this thread is to plead your cases as leaders of those forums and to convince me that it's not the best thing to do to remove or merge the forum, but a different approach is necessary. Forum pleads.

You don't have to. It won't be that way for long.

Maybe you should consider taking a step down if you can't handle an LoA. Not having any restraint is something that I don't think's good in a moderator. I'll remove CBC if I see it's appropriate to remove it, however.

Don't worry, I'll be merging some of them. I'm just going to delete the useless ones. I haven't decided what those are yet, though.

If that's how you feel, that's fine, so be it. Sarcasm aside, I still have another administrator who agrees with me that weeding out the inactive forums is the most appropriate form of action, and that's really all I care about. All the nay-sayers can gather together and complain to someone who cares.
