    My first suggestion: a better slogan than "We're still working on a better slogan". Maybe, "Catching them all since n"?

Or you can face the music and realize no one cares about BW anymore and you're now in the club with me, Metal/Color and Advanced!
    No, no. 52 weeks = 104 Pokémon. You can also take a previously used Pokémon and compare it to a different one; for instance, Cryogonal vs. Beartic, who is better? Every two weeks at most, but if they go any less frequently, they will be lowering activity, not increasing it. (Though on the other hand, the polls could move to the Black 2 / White 2 forums once the North American editions come out; until they do, they should stay in Black/White.)

    The "more deserving threads" can always be stickied. A good moderator knows what should be visible to all members at the top and what can drop below. A couple of good threads for discussion can always be plopped at the top of the forum and, when talk dies down, unstickied. Quick questions can still mix into this particular forum very nicely - as they can with any edition forum (Platinum for instance).

    (I used to be a forum moderator elsewhere years ago - can you tell?)
