Shouldn't 4th generation gaming be moved out of current Gaming?

I mean, it's not current anymore, the games are 5 years maybe even older I forget when.

I believe once 6th gen is out and settled in 4th gen will move out so 5th and 6th will be the only ones in there.

Ehhh. Diamond/Pearl/Platinum and HG/SS aren't that old I feel?? Well D/P might be, but I don't think we should just boot them out of current gen just yet. I don't feel so comfortable with that move. u_u

Personally I see it more as the games played on the current console, so in this case Gen IV would still count as Current Gaming, but I may be a minority in this thinking. Maybe I just don't want to see it get cast away haha, but to me Gen IV still feels like it should fall under 'current', at least 'till Gen VI is actually released. :3

Currently at the ready in the firing line. I was considering proposing it the same moment that I created the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y forum. Needs discussion though, and the new forums are unimaginably keeping my hands full.

People play and trade on D/P/P and HG/SS still, right? Compared to 3rd gen, they aren't exactly outdated. I think it can stay until staff thinks the section seems too cluttered ^^ Which might happen if trading or competitive battling in 6th gen will require their own sections in order to separate them notably from the 4th gen threads, perhaps.

Can we not? I don't want 4th gen... :( It would ruin meeeee. Cause you know, that'd where it'd go. To me. And ew.

I think once BW and B2W2 merge to make one gen V section, CPGD won't seem so full. I think 4th gen can stay where they are. I agree with RCHP that gen IV doesn't seem as outdated as I-III since you can still wi-fi trade and battle with them, and even now, I think more people own a DS than a 3DS.

Us Fourth Generation fanatics aren't ew! Waaah.

On a more serious note, this has been on my mind for a while now. Personally, I still think Fourth Gen warrants its place under Current Generation Gaming. I definitely think it'd be appropriate for BW and B2W2 to be merged into one Gen V section. That'd tidy things up a bit, and keep CGG not as cluttered as it is now. It's really up to the hstaff to decide and make the final decision, but as the section's moderator,I do want to at least have somewhat of a say on its well being/future.

I think it could really go either way. They games were released six years ago internationally - as of April - but are still not 'old,' since the generation was refreshed midway with HeartGold and SoulSilver and are far from being forgotten/unpopularized. Perhaps when Sixth Generation starts to settle in, rather than just as the news is starting to flow in. It'll have to be sooner or later, but why not later?

But HG/SS came out in 2010. Is 3 years apart means that the game is old? There's still a lot of people who play/trade/battle with Gen IV games, so I don't think Gen IV should be taken out from Current Gaming?

Current Gaming means games that are being currently played right? Gen IV is still in there as one of the games that still highly played.

In my eyes the deciding factor is that people still use the 4th Gen games a lot for trading and to a lesser extent battling. If they're still being used in this way then I see no reason not to class them as current games, especially if the two Gen V forums are to be merged so the section won't be cluttered. I'd understand if Gen IV was moved as its now two generations old, but I reckon it's more suited to the current gaming section for now.

I'm fine with this as long as the 4th Generation forums aren't moved into sections grouped under "Older Generations". Personally, I'd make a whole new category, split DPPt from HGSS and move 4th generation trade-related and battle-related, if necessary, forums into that category (or create them if they don't exist now). It'd definitely involve a much larger forum change than just moving one forum because 4th gen is so active that there'd be some nasty logistical complications of moving it alone imo.

While that sounds good on paper,when put into practice, I think it will get really messy.

It'd probably be a tad messy, but beats the alternatives that I see, which are either crowing older generations or giving the main 4th gen games a whole forum of their own. Unless there's some really easy way out which I'm missing!

DPPt had been merged with HGSS in the first place as DPPt by itself was simply not having enough activity, so I can't say I agree with the idea of splitting it up again. Not worth risking the same problem happening again which got solved.

Could always make DS Generation games and have 4th gen and BW(2) in it. Not right now obviously, but maybe at the dawn of the next generation. I know that's a long way away, but that would be when there would be at least two gens that can stay in CGPD and then perhaps split 4th gen back into DPPt and HGSS and then have BW and B2W2 and those four could make up DS Generation forum.

If we're going for rearranging forums then the set-up I see working best would be along these lines:

Main-Series Pokémon Games
Sixth Generation Games (3DS)
Fifth Generation Games (DS)
Fourth Generation Games (DS)
Advance Generation Games (GBA)
Metal and Color Generation Games (GB/GBC)

Pokémon Gaming Discussions
Pokémon Gaming Central
Trade Corner
Battle Center
Challenges
Spinoff Games

I reckon that'd leave everything in good order and make everything easy to find, but I'd still much prefer to see the current forum order remain and have Gen IV kept in current gaming for the reasons stated above. But if we are going for rearranging the forums then I definitely don't think it'd be a good idea to split the DS games into DPPt/HGSS/BW/BW2 for exactly the reasons listed by bobandbill. It'd be awkward sorting out moderators in relation to where Syd mods, but that's easily sorted in many ways if it comes to it.

With Gen VI on it's way, you think it's better to put the games according to their generation?

Fourth Gen: D/P/Pt & HG/SS
Fifth: BW/BW2
Sixth: XY

Instead of having BW and BW2 have their separate threads? It would be probably more organized too, wouldn't it?

BW and B2W2 are both really active, I think it's a little too soon to talk about merging them.

Why not though? I'd more than assume that they'd thrive off each others' activity.

I.....well I don't know if my opinion counts for anything, but merging B/W and BW2 might not be such a bad idea. They're active, of course, and that's all the more reason to merge them(at least, in their case, I would believe). They're just about the same, if not the similar thing, BW2 only being "different" in the sense of the storyline, but the overall atmosphere isn't that different from B/W.

Is there a reason why thread prefixes won't work in this case? ><;

I would like to see this rearrangement if it is needed. The only problem would be sorting out the moderators given all the sections Sydian mods.

But yeah I would like to see all the main series get their own board while Spinoffs, Trade Corner, Battle Center, Challenges and Pokemon Gaming Central can all get a corner all to themselves.

I agree with Xander, they'll probably promote new moderators for those sections.

I could see Curious retaining 4th Generation though.
