    I'm sorry I haven't been posting much lately, won't be better until I go to the US probably.. I will try to continue doing some PF Press work, but I'm limited by not having B/W.

    Wow 14 registered members online, that has been the most I have seen in awhile. Must be the new eggs.

    Forgive me for not being as active as I once was, but life has drawn me away from the site I once loved. Working as a middle school science teacher, as well as having a serious relationship of three years, has taken away almost all of my free time.

    I think pokemon is a wonderful game. However, I think one of the primary reasons why activity has gone down is because of the many other games people can use their time playing. Modern Warfare, Black Ops, Halo, Battlefield, are just some of the many action-packed games that I believe have drawn people away from games such as pokemon, myself included.

    I hope Black and White helps restore PF to the site it once was. But due to my schedule, I sadly cannot be a part of that experience.

    Don't forget, if you have an idea that does not require the staff to do anything then go ahead and do it.

    If it requires the staff then send us a PM.

    Also, if you have Black/White please look over this thread

    Just thought I might do a little note taking and collect all of our ideas for possible improvements. Leaving names out because who's idea it is does not affect how the idea may be implemented.
    (Note: If you replied in this thread, I may not have included your suggestion because I may have missed it. Sorry.)


    IMPROVEMENTS


    1. Be a "Site Leader" - someone who is willing to make a difference
    2. Less Gyms
    3. Non specialized Gym?
    4. Farm Events
    5. Art Contests
    6. Better Gym Management
    7. Make use of the money system in the gyms
    8. Add search tags to the site
    9. Tourney for new members ONLY(May have been misinterpreted)
    10. Youtube promotion videos
    11. More popular members working in the gyms worked in the past ...
    12. Less steep learning curve for new members
    13. New Gen 5 ready Gyms (Triple & Rotation Battles)
    14. More Pick Up Awards
    15. Certain Gyms being open during a specific part of the year
    16. Monthly Tournaments
    17. Tri-Monthly Special Tournaments
    18. Be more accidental rule breaking noob friendly
    19. Tournaments in the Summer due to student demographic
    20. More flexible battle planning on gym leaders behalf
    21. Know that Steve is NOT pokefarm (but it does exist because of him and we love him for everything)
    22. Big Brother Program for new members
    23. Look at the OLD forum and see what worked and what didn't
    24. New member site scavenger hunt
    25. Get back to the BREEDING
    26. Breeding Request List
    27. Funniest Signature Contest
    28. Member of the Month Award
    29. Much of our hope rides on Pokemon Black and White - We must handle with caution
    30. (nothing but it looks nicer if there are 30 suggestions instead of 29)
    From ashes we rise
    Fly we shall forever more
    Falling we shall not

    Yay! I'm not the only one that highlights sigs for fun!

    HI

    havent been here in...years as a matter of fact, but reading missingno´s first post kinda got to me.

    Glory days will forever be known as the glory days. nothing more, but even back then, there wasn´t much activity to begin with as it was what...20 something odd members posting everyday.

    Id like to see pokefarm in a new direction as well. times are changing and with it so is pokemon. we have a 5th generation, new battling strategies, 156 brand new pokemon, a completely revamped feel to the game known as pokemon, not to mention new moves and abilities to go along with the previous 493. and with it comes new members striving to master the game...

    as for suggesting ideas, i truly believe more activity will come by if there is a pokemon online server. the download is quick and easy, there´s help readily available for making a server ready...but while it sorta does take the whole battling aspect away from the site, thats where most of the people are at. its time to move on and get with the changes.

    I believe my post and this entire thread has been about the forum and its current leaders and members moving on from the past and preparing for a new generation of games and members. In no way would Pokemon Online support B/W as it pulls players away from the actual game and puts them on yet another simulator for people who can't succeed at the real thing. This forum is first and foremost about playing Pokemon the 'game.' And I believe that is where the action should always be. Sure it provides an opportunity for practice, but when it comes down to it, it means nothing. Winning a real battle against a real person using real Pokemon that you took the time and effort to breed for yourself is the real reward and that's what we should always focus on.
