Do you mind explaining why though?

It's completely irrelevant to the forums today, no one uses it, and even the members are okay with having it removed. Plus, the Art & Design forum pretty much fulfills whatever purpose the Oekaki once had. Social Groups, an inactive part of PC yet used more frequently than the Oekaki were removed due to the same reasons, so why are we keeping the Oekaki around still? Unless there's a really good reason behind it, I don't see the point.

Like Nick said, I don't even think it's worth the time and effort.

I'm fine with being told it won't be removed if there's sound reason.

    About the Oekaki being removed or not.. is there any actual harm in just keeping it there? It's hosted somewhere apart from PC so it's not causing server stress or anything is it?

    I mean.. if Steve wants it to stay, it's gonna stay, but I don't see anything wrong with it staying. I guess it can look a bit disorganized since it's so outdated but.. if there isn't any harm in it then.. guess it doesn't reeaallly matter either way.

      I don't think 'underuse' or 'lack of demand' is itself a valid reason to remove anything. I voted constructively anyway, but that's my stance.

      Well, considering the server is kinda slow, maybe removing some features would be a good idea.

      Now that I know what Oekaki is, I think of it the same as I do with the social groups we used to have, only Oekaki is used far less than the social groups were. But those took away from Fan Clubs/Pokemon Groups, and although Oekaki isn't taking away from A&D, it's still better to just use A&D for your art needs and postings. Oekaki doesn't serve a purpose anymore.

      I mean, if it has to stay, then whatever, it's not a huge deal, but like Shivi, I would love to be given a good reason for it to stay. Because really, what's the point in it?

        Then that would make the reason more than simply 'underuse' — which is fine.

        I personally think it clutters up the A&D section's index, especially when said section has a large forum splash. While it doesn't hurt to keep it in the Community Links, it's also pointless doing that if it's no longer used.

        Perhaps we could find a middle ground in just hiding it from view in A&D like Wolf said. It could still be accessed, but just by a link that's not in plain sight or by direct link. It just shouldn't clutter what it does any longer.

        I'd really like Post Icons to stay on the proviso that they're vastly improved upon (there was a competition a few years ago to redesign them but nothing seemed to happen after that), so they're more Pokémon-related. We could have a lot of fun with those rather than just being the generic vB ones.

        Thread images are good - I find them especially useful in forums that have downloads (e.g. ROM Hacks). I'd rather they be kept.

        Picture albums should definitely stay (there are hundreds, maybe thousands of photos already uploaded, so it would not make sense to take this away), though it is in dire need of an update; it's still very Web 1.0 if you know what I mean. I use it for my Pokémon artwork/graphic design - there isn't anywhere else I want to put it all.

        IM icons - I still use IMs and it is very useful to have the status icons there next to their names. So if I want to talk to one of my friends about a post and on the post it says they're online, I will.

        YouTube videos as profile pics - PLEASE DON'T GET RID OF THIS. It's probably been said before, but exploiting that feature gives us a really neat profile styling tool - the big transparent space at the top and shifting the name to the right. A lot of freedom for PC's awesome graphic designers.

        As far as A&D is concerned, the Oekaki is dead. We all know that. And for as long as I've been there, I personally haven't seen any demand for it's revival.

        Still, I don't want to see it go. :( I do agree with this suggestion though. We can just.. tuck it away somewhere safe, where it's still accessible to members if they desire, but doesn't occupy space anywhere important.

        In the past I accidentally broke the oekaki display in A&D and Steve was adamant that it be put back, so chances are that won't be going anywhere.

        Is there any chance at all of Rukario giving a reason as to why? I'd love to get some closure at least :/

        I would think that it has something to do with nostalgia. I've seen some tweets (sorry!) saying that this has happened in the past and is why this time, though I don't know personally.

          Instead of removing the 'hot threads' feature, the threshold for a thread to be considered 'hot' should be raised.

          One thing I'd like to mention. When I made this post, I decided to register to check if there was additional stats available to those that are registered. I used my current email, however, it's been over a week and I have yet to see an email from the Oekaki site to confirm my email and account.

          192 for keeping the page breakdown? Really?

          I'm going to guess that most have misunderstood what is meant by that, because it's pretty pointless.

          I posted a screenshot and people still voted for it, so I dunno. :/

          At any rate I agree that it's useless. I can't imagine any situation at all where you would want to jump to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th page of a thread while viewing the forum index. @[email protected]

          Wait, what?

          I thought the page breakdown was the (1 2 3 4 5.... Last Page) thing you see on the section pages. Isn't it?

              I don't use it terribly often, but when I know something I'm looking for is on a given page early in a thread and I'm not already in the thread, it's useful.

              I registered when I was modded back in February -- with hopes that I could contribute. I am still waiting for confirmation as well. I figured I had done something wrong. :(
