    Just thought of something? Are we allowed to secretly nominate someone else for an emblem? Like let's say we go to their profile and see they're really obsessed with ___ or the profile is really pretty/ bright/ whatever, or someone who is a newbie but we think is really mature and contributing a lot, are we not allowed to PM a mod and just say "Hey I think I want to nominate this person for ___ emblem?"
    And if it happens it happens and so cool, and if the mod doesn't see them fit yet for the emblem, then it should just be let be.. but I think it might be nice.

    Not sure what other staff does, but if someone tells me they think so and so deserves a certain emblem, I go check them out and give it to them if I agree. It's not very often this happens though.

    For a while you could publicly nominate people for emblems, but people were taking it as a given and it became like your friends asking for emblems for you instead of you asking them for yourself so it got stopped. But there isn't any rule against pointing out someone that you thinks deserves an emblem.

    On the whole issue of mods knowing h-staff discussions...I'm just going to echo Audy here and say, it's not their jobs. Yes, our mods are the workhorses of the staff team. Yes, we're very grateful for everything they do and we respect their input. And yes, PC couldn't exist without our mod team.

    But the h-staff are the ones responsible for the management of the community as a whole. Mods are responsible for a specific/a few specific forums. Stuff like forum arrangement, new features, and the like, are the realm of the h-staff. Obviously, if we're making a decision that directly involves the way the mods do their job, then it's only common courtesy to get their input before going through with it. But if, for example, your forum gets moved to a different category, it doesn't affect your job in any way. And if there's a discussion about multi-forum or community-wide stuff, it's honestly not the realm of the mods. It's not that we don't respect our mods or value their contributions to PC, it's just not their job to be concerned with h-staff affairs.

    There's already enough deliberation and red tape that goes along with HQ decisions - especially since we have such a big h-staff at this point. A lot of HQ discussions drag on for weeks before any action takes place. To delay stuff any more, especially for no reason other than "This is going to happen in 24 hours!", is just redundant and ineffectual use of time.

    I personally don't see a major issue with this other than 'that member could return.' Let's be frank - how many six-seven year old members that haven't logged on for, well, six or seven years have returned to full activity, and I mean full, in the past two or three years? One, maybe two? In any case, it's not all that many, and if it means old accounts could be purged to clear up space (if that even helps, that's something I'm not sure of) in the database, as well as free up some a good chunk of usernames, then what's another valid reason for not doing it?

      Ah, didn't know it even took that long : | I could understand the frustration then! Well guess that's fair enough! Appreciated the input back on that though!

      Also!! Are we ever gonna get post-comment notifications in the future? I know there's been big overhauling with the actual forum, so definitely no rush, but someone (I think it was Harlequin) mentioned it in that other thread Audy made about things going and I thought it would be an awesome feature *__*! Not really something to change but.. adding it would definitely be pretty awesome!

      And what do you guys say to having the sender of post-comments visible to us in the CP? Or do you think it should stay anonymous?

      I know, Syd. Really. My problem is that your only valid reason is "it would be nice." There's no practical reason and it's adding a whole other step into a process that already usually takes weeks from start of discussion to implementation as it is.
      I don't see what takes away the validity of "it would be nice." Because it really would. How would you feel if your work place randomly changed policies or uniforms one day without telling you beforehand? You walk in and bam, things are changed. It just seems like a courteous thing to do to inform people of any changes that are going to be made.

      It's really not a hard thing to say "hey guys, things are going to be this way from now on." It just really isn't, which is why I'm having understanding why this apparently can't be done.

      I don't at all think anybody needs to "prepare" to having a forum listed in a different category. You're either going to sign on and be surprised by reading a thread saying it'll happen or you'll sign on and be surprised by seeing it done. What... is the difference to you? While for us (hstaff), again, it's adding another useless step into a bigger process that already has a thousand other steps. I hate the bureaucracy that already plagues making decisions in HQ so forgive me if I loathe the idea of things taking even longer.
      Moderators of the affected forums need to be prepared. As I've stated before, it was a slap in the face to sign on and see I didn't mod my own full category anymore and that there was this new forum in GPGD without anyone telling me. If we're not going to tell the forum as a whole when forums are merged and such, that's fine. I'm done trying to get that change made. That's clearly not going to happen. But at least telling the mods would be a step up. I don't know if you informed them or not, nor does it matter any more, but it would be very reassuring to know that you did. And if you didn't, could that at least be an effort to make in the future? Just PM the moderator and say "Hstaff has come to a decision that x is going to happen to your forum soon."

      I'm not mad about this or anything. I mean, I was mad when it was my forums, but I wasn't mad per se about the merge the other night. But still. It just, for lack of a better phrase, would be nice.

      I agree wholeheartedly with Syd. It might not seem like much of a deal to you but it is for some of us. Just PMing the moderator isn't something I see taking too long.

      That said, this:

      on a side note, something I'd change would be to make the default avatar size 160 x 160px, simply because that's the same size as some of the photosets on Tumblr, lol. I know it wouldn't ever happen, but it's a nice thing to think about regardless.
      Because larger avatar sizes are always nice. <3;

      Well, if you didn't even make a post in the first place, I don't see how it could be considered "returning"…

      And yeah, some people use their accounts just to download attachments in the Emulation section once or twice (I know I signed up this account to do so), so if we get those people out it shouldn't affect them any. Besides. They could just make another one when they want to post.

      Don't you guys have like separate mods and hstaff discussion forums or something? So yeah, either you guys should snoop in on the conversation, or they can post one little thing saying "okay pay attention guys this is what's going down", and you wouldn't have to PM anyone, and it would mostly be a copy+paste job…and if you have a discussion forum for changes with all staff included but only hstaff could make the final decision, you guys have a bigger sample size, and with surveys, that's usually a good thing.

      and concerning the bureaucauiewfiawhi the long process that it takes to decide something, you should implement a Phoenix Wright type of system, where within x time if you don't come up with a "solution" the Top 3 or something (oldest? most posts? idk you guys figure it out) will automatically decide for everyone if to go on (ie it's alllmost there, it just needs some more ironing out), or to just skip xyz (you guys are in gridlock over a detail or the whole idea). And I say the top three or w/e can override because (1) this is pretty much their forum at this point, and (2) I can trust that they can make the right decision if they haven't been kicked out of their positions…

      Or if it's getting the votes, have all the staff be required to vote within x time (preferably 2/3 days, since that accounts for "required activity" and time zones) so that you don't have to "bump the thread with the votes" and everything.

      And if it's because it's slow to get the staff to discuss, just require them to get on and try to contribute (I say try because I know there's some issues where I couldn't care less), because it's their job and minor details like that.

      Suggestions, guys. Don't get offended.

        Oh damn that's a good idea.. kinda like what we have with the like "small changes" thread in announcements. Something that is locked by h-staff in the mod lounge just giving an announcement to the mods before anything is posted/ done yet to the public maybe?

        Maybe that would be a good all-around compromise. Not a discussion, doesnt take much time, but still lets mods know IF they need to know/ it is something that can be shared.

        <3 Hope this will help <3

        I would honestly prefer if the whole exchange was more personal and the Moderator(s) that's to be effected by the changes are contacted privately. But that's just me so!

        OKAY

        I think post comments should still be anonymous. Maybe you sometimes don't dare to tell someone who you are when you compliment them or point something out, and you can just type your name in if you do want them to know :3


        BUT what I came here to say really is that I want the animated Duskull thread icon to go away. It's annoying and fugly :3
        I'm all for pokémon thread icons! But make them non-animated. Maybe I'm just a bit boring, but I prefer my thread index static xD with the exception of smexy board headers on the top, of course.

        Duskull is adorable get out omg. I do agree though that it's odd the Duskull is animted while the others aren't. I'd be more in favor of removing the thread icons really cause they don't have too much purpose, but it's not a big deal if it stays. Maybe we should change Duskull to Dusknoir. lol

        Haha yeah ok. I feel like there's been a discussion about redundant stuff in this forum at some point recently, where icons and those other redundant images appearing next to the icons in the index were mentioned? I wonder what happened with that.

        I like thread icons just because they can make threads stand out a little ^^ But we have rather dull ones, like smiley faces, so a Dusknoir or other pokémon would be a vast improvement - especially considering we are a pokémon forum. Preferably not animated though, but that's just my own preference of course.

        Those other icon thingys (to the left of the "post icons") that show if a thread is locked or not and if you have posted or not - I would like those removed. Or rather, merged with the post icons. If it's possible! One kind of icon next to a thread is enough, but I still think it's definitely useful to see a little dot if you are subscribed to a thread perhaps, an arrow if you have posts in it and a lock if the thread is locked. Or something.

        @ Gavin, you can't? Maybe you are human after all 8D

        There's a new forum for every staff level. They each have their own purpose. Mod forum is the Mod & Admin Lounge [pretty much the same thing as CQ&F in a weird way], and hstaff is the HQ (and admin is CMD).

        The argument that's being made by most hstaff is they don't want to add another step to the process, which I agree with. It takes so long to get things done in HQ it's absolutely ridiculous, and most of the time it's not because it takes time to hammar out the details. When something finally does make the vote, most of us don't want to add another 12 or 24 or 48 hours for the change to occur. So having a post that says "okay pay attention guys this is what's going down" just, as Audy said, adds another step to the process that's kind of unnecessary because changes are announced in the updates thread anyway.

        It's the hstaff's job and responsibility to vote in HQ threads. That's our primary responsibility (in fact, I think it's actually our only real responsibility). So, as far as I'm concerned, all hstaff are required to vote. And I don't like putting a time limit on how soon someone should reply to a thread. I don't know the reason behind other people not replying to threads, mostly because I think I'm pretty spammy in HQ and I generally think it through via my posts rather than gathering my thoughts before posting, but I think most of the time, it's safe to assume that its a case of "Okay, I read this. I'm going to take some time to think about it." And, honestly, I'd rather them take that time to think it through than require them to reply immediately.

            Huh really? Hstaff can all see post comments through the modcp, just not through normal styles. Or at least I can. d:

            When I said hstaff can see who leaves comments, I meant overall they can check and see. Not entirely sure about if they can look in their user cp and see them like mods used to be able to, but whether they can or not, I know they can check through what Razor Leaf mentioned. Unless admins gave him crazy powers, haha.

            I would have a better mobile site. The current one doesnt work to well and it's harder to find topics and the text boxes pictures and videos will go way off the screen a lot of the time. Other than that the team recruitment thread area, won't post my team thread even though I followed the rules that they wanted.

            Uh, since we can view a list of all the post comments given to us by other people, would it be possible to make it so we can view the post comments we have given to others??? Makes sense to me imo

              My suggestion/opinion would be for the moderators not to take their jobs so seriously.

              I've been in that position where I've been in that "position of power" and all of sudden I'm scrolling through the website with the Code of Conduct closely at hand. Guys, remember that this is a Pokemon website not the White House forums.

              Don't get me wrong, I praise your level of commitment towards your job and how seriously you take it. But, the people who join this website solely come for 3 main reasons: Trade, battle and meet new people. If something gets complicated just to get any of the 3, then I'm sure their level of enthusiasm is sure to diminish.

                I just wanna say here that I dislike the crazy amount of closed threads, which are, mainly, made up of 2 posts; 1 by the OP & 1 by the mod closing the thread.
                99% of these closed threads are just useless, taking up space & they're not even that important to read, most of them are just threads in the wrong section :P
                Can you, mods, please erase more closed threads? OR just move the ones that aren't silly into their appropriate section... IS ANYBODY LISTENING?

                The thing with closed threads is that we need the OP of that thread to see why it was locked, and if they have questions, they can PM the mod as to why it was locked. And other people can look at that thread and in turn know, "Okay, I'll remember this so that I don't get my thread locked like this as well." We only delete threads that are really bad, like trolling threads or porn spammers or adbots.

                As far as moving them, I do agree there. I myself try to move as many threads as I can if possible, though I don't move them if they don't meet the requirements for the forum, would go in a forum that goes under approval, there's already a topic about it there, or if even I don't know where it goes, just that it doesn't belong in my forum. But yeah, I have seen threads just get locked and not moved and there, to me, seemed like there was no reason not to, which I don't understand. If you know where it goes and it will fit in fine, there's no problem in moving it and that should be done. That's how I see it, anyway.

                Hope that clears up some stuff about locked threads~

                This has been said before and rejected for reasons, I think. I even have some reasons against it, myself. But I would like to again throw out the idea of merging Pokémon Gaming Central and Pokémon General.

                So many are confused about which of those two sections to post in and even though I understand that you might want to promote more of a theory based discussion and the concept of pokémon and the pokémon world as a whole in PG, I don't think it's completely necessary to draw a line between discussions related to pokémon in gaming and pokémon in other media/the idea of pokémon.

                Not sure where this merged section would be best situated in the main forum index, and not sure what should be done with the manga subforum if it was placed under the gaming discussions, but yeah.

                What do you think?
