    I dunno why my message vanished, but I was asking about a serious concern. When all the gens were grouped together I really do feel like it looks messy now, and I really don't feel like my message needs to be removed without being addressed. I'm not on here trying to spam, I just wanna know why it was put like that when it looked more organized before.

        just read through all of the thread.

        all i have to say is -- wow.

        of course, i'd been lurking for the past years so i dont have anything personal to connect to this, but hopefully PC doesn't break apart.

            So. I’m proud of everyone who made incredibly difficult decisions. You’re all entitled to feel however you feel. I’m incredibly proud of everyone who sacrificed their status. You guys took a stand and created change. That’s progress. So let’s groove on that. Everyone reach out to another. You are all worth so much more then those forum. We all saw so much more in each other then we ever did in ourselves. This is a community built on so much love and support. Regardless of what happens, please don’t stop supporting those you’ve connected with. Whatever’s keeping you here isn’t the forum itself, but the people you managed to bond with. That can’t ever be harmed. That isn’t replaceable. Value each other above the forum. Healing isn’t an overnight process, nor is regaining comfortability. Regain at your own pace. Take your sweet time and reestablish a newfound trust. But staff I cannot stress how much you need to communicate more with your members and establish a relationship with them.

              As a member of PC for nearly 4-5 years, i've experienced a lot surprisingly. This is where i learned the etiquette of Roleplaying, and how to structure stories and plots. This is also where i got to play some of my favorite Fan-Games/Rom Hacks, and where i met amazing people. When i heard the news and that the fact that PC suffered a huge blow, it indeed crushed me, seeing this Community in which i grew and had a huge impact on me suffering.

              As i now learn that PC isn't going anywhere, i realize that we gotta stay strong, and rise once again. We were the Staple of the Pokemon Fandom, why can't we be anymore? We still are. We just had a few issues. While it's true that Rukairo stepping down is a bit sad, cause he did a lot we're thankful for him, it is the best that he takes some time for his own, and let PC heal it's wounds.

              However, we have suffered a huge damage. A lot of people deleted their accounts/threads, and moved their activities to other Communities. And other Communities, which i'm not gonna name em, are trying to replace our beloved home that is PC. So yes, while we also have to rebuild our Community, we also have to defend it and prevent that this place goes barren. I'm not letting PC going down without a fight, that's for sure. (Not literally fighting, to clarify. Pacifism for the win.)

              And so, while i am glad that the remaining mods are here to defend the fort, i also believe that this time around, everyone has to defend the fort, and avoid any issues like this happens in the future, under our possible way that is. I may be just some guy who rarely checks the forum, who's been here for like 5 years, but i assure you that we all feel the need to protect the community we so hold dear in our hearts and call home.

              In an ending note, PC is a huge impact on my life, especially since some of my best friends online were made here, and thus, it has an important meaning. For that, i'm willing to fight to defend it, even if i don't have qualifications to moderate or anything like that. PC still lives, and will still live on, all we gotta do is keep united and press forwards. This is indeed, a new chapter to PC. For all the mods, i thank you for keeping the fort together. For a special message to Rukairo: Take care, take some time for yourself, and let time heal the wounds. You're a great person, and i never have doubted of you for a single second.

                This is my thing about this entire situation, if you are going to resign because you are afraid that someone is going to find out on here that your rl self somehow is associated with a sex offender then you obviously aren't doing very well at hiding your identity on the internet when dealing with things such as illegal rom hacks. As such it seems silly that staff step down just because of that.
                That is merely my two cents on the matter. That being said I do not wish for this community to die as it seems necessary to keep pokemon alive to some degree honestly.

                  Pokemon will continue on without this forum. There exists boards and threads elsewhere that discuss it just as much as this board does. Some people's interest in the series may be tied here, but Pokemon is doing just fine.

                  It's easy to say just hide your identity online. Just don't post your real name. All that fun stuff, but "they won't find out" is something said by everyone who was ever found out. It's honestly crazy what people can find out about you from just a single account that seems unconnected to yourself at all. Simply put, why risk it if you are in a position where that could hurt you?

                  Plus to not drag other stuff into the limelight, as a moderator for a large forum it is a very thankless job. You can parade around how much you love and appreciate your mods, but it's often a lot of work and much of that is very behind the scenes and thankless. When pressed with a scandal that like it or not will affect you in some way (even just trolls vandalizing your board to the possibility of appearing complicit in the scandal), you have to decide if it is worth it. As we see here, many decided it wasn't.

                  And it may seem silly just because they obviously weren't a part of it, but that is a serious crime and a serious accusation. We're talking about a list that follows you for life, that anyone can look up and see (at least in the US). This affects jobs, this affects your criminal record, this can even effect where you can live. If I was tied potentially that closely to that, and it came to light in a very public manner, there is no doubt I'd jump ship. It's not worth it for me.

                  Just another one of my two cents here.

                    The money thing never factored into it for me. You guys give your time to this place, I don't really care if you help yourselves out a little. I also don't really think Jake being an admin is an issue.

                    The Steve this wasn't just that the site was owned by someone like him, although that certainly pushed my buttons. It's that we banned user Coffee for far, far less because we felt we had a duty of care to young members even though Coffee's ill behavior happened away from PC. It didn't even happen on PC's Discord. The H Staff took the Coffee matter very seriously. Which is fair, but what wasn't fair is that the staff knew about Steve before the knowledge became public and felt they had to heavily deliberate on his fate and it looks like he only agreed to step down in light of the damage it done and not out of decency. We banned one for an off colour and inappropriate joke yet someone who actually committed a crime that has undoubtedly altered the lives of all involved was given the choice to leave with as much dignity as he could.

                    A long time ago PC was rife with double standards for Staff. I thought those days were long gone. This has really disappointed me.

                    I have no other Forum these days than PC, this one was always important to me. I won't go to a new forum either, just sad my time with this one ended like this.

                    I hope for the best for you guys. I don't want PC ruined for everyone, even if it is for me.

                        Well. This was an enlightening read going over this thread. In all fairness, I'm a pretty lousy member of this forum. Mostly just here to keep tabs on a couple fan games and hacks, never really reached out and tried to get to know anyone. Still, I've enjoyed my time on here. This whole issue is important though. I believe it can bounce back though, I don't see this as an end. It's a new beginning, and I've got faith in the admins to help that come along.

                        It's been a while since I first learned of the issue, but I had to think long and hard about what I wanted to say. So, here are my two cents:

                        So long as the community (and specifically I by extension) are kept in touch about what exactly is going on in this transition, I personally don't have much issue with the way things seem to be moving forward. While I'm not the happiest that it took this long to get Steve to step down, I do understand that such things take time, as he does own the domain name (and this site by consequence), and the process of transferring it and the intact site is a bit dicey.

                        As for money, I personally don't care much about that stuff after it's spent. I just want to be reassured it wasn't used for some random purposes aside from keeping one of my favorite message boards open. Yeah, I've not posted actively for years, if you'd even call three posts a month "activity." Still, I contributed to keeping this place awesome as well as I could in my all-too-frequent absences from here. I still feel that, in some small part, my presence here has done good for others. So long as I still feel that it's worth contributing every once in a blue moon, I'll pitch in some so long as it helps.

                        It's been many years since I joined, and I've matured and taken strides to improve my life, but this community will always hold a place in my heart for helping me break past a dark point and arrive at a better place for myself. While most of my life's activities (or hobbies) have nothing to do with Pokémon anymore, I am still indebted to those who have given so much of their time in service to the cause of making a positive impact on our lives, however small it may seem.

                        Just keep up the holy work in restoring the credibility and strength of this wonderful place. I'll do what I can to support.

                        So I've been away from PC for a while (for numerous reason) and just logged in today to check up on a few things. I'm gonna be coming back in a month or so and am so happy that, after hearing about this news, the community is gonna live on. I've made a lot of friends and have had so many good times on this forum I would be heartbroken to see it shut down. Really believe the new owners will do an amazing job, they're great people!

                        See everyone soon :P
