    Just popping in to say that if this were possible (and that I don't know) it would have to be set up to allow exceptions. Two sections in Fanfiction & Writing (the main board and the Archive) allow bumping of any thread of any age, but the Writer's Lounge does not.

    But we can always discuss alternatives, like extending the time limit on what makes a thread "inactive".

    I think that you really need to either ease off on locking any thread that's bumped after a month OR simply (automatically if possible, I guess) delete any thread with a month or more of inactivity. It makes no sense at all to leave the threads there, then leap out and lock them if and only if somebody dares to post on one.

    Personally, I think it makes no sense to lock them at all, but if you're going to insist that nobody be allowed to post on them, then there's really no reason for them to even be here.

    Thanks...
    I agree regarding the locking of a thread that's been revived. I don't see the point in doing that, which is why I don't, but each mod does things differently and really, there isn't a right or wrong way to handle that.

    When I click on "Social Groups" I get this, why am I not allowed to visit? Also is anyone else able to access it?

    ^Social Groups have been closed down since 2011, so the link is inaccessible to anyone. I believe some styles may still have the Social Groups link and they should be directed to an admin so they could remove them.

      Hello I want to change my userbar to this:
      Code:
      <span style="background: url(http://i.imgur.com/75ruE.gif) repeat scroll 0% 0% transparent; color:#FA529D;"><b><i>Pokemon LightRed creator</i></b></span>
      How can I do that?

      I'm going to assume you mean usertitle going by the code you posted! Unfortunately PokeCommunity doesn't currently accept usertitle change requests. They can only be plain text and edited through your own user control panel, sorry about that. :(

        Who can I talk to about changing my username? I made this account back in 2006 and I would rather have a different name now.

        They stopped that years ago, due to server issues. Just hang on, there's always a chance that the guy working on this will find a way to make it work again.

        If you really want a name change, you're better off making a brand new account since admins cannot change usernames at this time. As droo mentioned, it's being worked on at this time, but there is no word as of when there will be a fix.

          You can find hacks by clicking here to go to the Emulation & ROM Hacking forum.

          By clicking here, you can go to your User CP and upload or link an image to use as your avatar. 8)

            Hey y'all, I've posted here before about the closed threads not being deleted, I believe the reply was that these threads should be up for others to see & beware not to imitate.

            The problem is that there's just too many of them now, mostly misplaced topics or really noobish questions... And they're usually like this:
            -"How do I use ___ emulator?"
            -"Where do I get ROM files?"
            -"I feel so alone"
            -"hiiii im new n i want som pokes trade plsssss!!!11"
            -"Hey check out my hack jk it's just an idea"
            -"WHY WAS MY POST DELETED???"
            And so on........

            What I'm trying to say is, leaving these threads is unnecessary.
            Some users are breaking the very basic rules of the internet, which include looking at the whole freaking homepage before making a thread to know where to post, forum titles are pretty straight forward with a helpful sub-description & we don't have a zillion ones. Reading the rules thread wouldn't hurt too...
            Assuming users are too lazy to do these stuff, can't they read the obvious short notices in each forum? I mean notices like "This is not a place to discuss hacks" or "This forum is for discussing __ & __" which some of them are in Bold or have a big font, IMO these notices are enough & not whole closed threads.

            Another good reason why you shouldn't keep these threads is that these threads are like halls of shame; you broke a rule & now I'm gonna close your thread & leave it for everyone to see what a rule-breaker you are... OFC that's not what the mods seek but that's how I see it & I thought you should know.

            TL;DR mods, please tell me what you have in mind when you decide to close a thread instead of removing it & replying to the OP in his PMs (other than the reason mentioned in the very first line), or do you need approval from admins before doing so?
            I really wanna know that's all.

            I can see where you're coming from. I'm sure a lot of us leave locked threads so the member that posted it can see why their thread was closed and where to go next time, but in the case of clutter I was considering deleting the thread in my board and then private messaging the member privately to explain instead. We don't need admin permission to do such, no. Sadly there are a lot of misplaced topics here on PC but it's our job to handle them in whatever way we see fit.

            If a thread was posted in my board that belonged elsewhere I'd usually move it with a redirect that expires after 24 hours so it wouldn't clutter the page, though I wouldn't be able to if it belonged in a certain thread in another board (such as being unable to move a question about White/Black2 since I don't have the power to merge a thread into Fifth Generation Gaming's quick questions due to not being a moderator there).

              I see, I'm certain you do what you can but isn't there a way to like, request to move a thread to a certain section & if its mod approves it is automatically moved?
              Also, is there a way I can hide certain threads? Or an option that hides closed and/or locked threads?

              Requests are fine. Any mod can move to a separate section, just that they can't do anything more than that (say merge it with another in there), and they probably won't move if they feel the thread already ran its course (e.g. question thread that's already answered), or the other section requires mod approval first. So requesting to them for more than that won't work, although if you ask a super mod or admin then they would be able to do that.

              I'm not aware of any way to hide threads (only sections).

                This is kind of a stupid question, but still. Do we have a thread for claiming things? You know, like songs, celebrity's, and Pokemon. I looked, but couldn't find one.

                      If I send someone a PM, should that message be viewable in my Sent Items folder? My Sent Items folder is empty and I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or the Sent Items folder isn't what I think it is.

                        You need to change your settings.
                        Edit Options > Messaging & Notification > Private Messaging > Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Items folder by default

                        Select the checkbox.

                          Ok, I changed my settings, thanks for the info! I also noticed a typo when I was changing my settings.

                          Spoiler:


                          It says 'Online/Offine Image.' Just tossing that out here...
