Does anyone here lurk anymore?
« on: June 22, 2022, 01:36 »
I used to love this forum years ago, and I recently decided to check on it again and it’s mostly dead here now which is really sad.

I can’t believe I’ve been a member here for almost 20 years, and I still love Pokémon just like I did back in 1998!

I have a little look to see if anyone has posted anything every once in a while. Discord is nice, but I prefer to write on forums if I can.
Back when the forum was more active, I liked sharing my poems. It is hard to share things like poems on Discord, as poems are written on multiple lines.

I pop by every so often (increasingly sporadically now) to see if the site is still up - if nothing else it's a time capsule of a bygone era and I hope it sticks around.

My account will also be 20 in October, mad. To be 13 again with my biggest concerns being internet arguments over pokemon and hanging around on the IRC chat.

also petzbreeder you can put multiple lines on discord by holding shift as you press enter, it will make another line :)

It's a server I use for several different things, so the cost is priced in to me keeping several other things open. I got a decent deal on it, so it's pretty manageable at the moment. I try to fix problems where I can, but the site may have an issue occasionally (I still have a PHP 8 upgrade I need to do that requires a lot of code fixing).

But yeah, as far as I'm concerned, it'll stick around for a long time. I'm not really investing in anything major, but let me know if there's something quick I can fix and if anyone ever wants to put anything up, I'm happy to do my best to help out.

And as said, a lot of us hang out in Discord now. I'm not as visible, but reading along and dealing with bits where I can.

And I should figure out the Name Rater some day.

That's great to know, old school forums like this are a great nostalgic blast from the past to read through!

It's very sad to see how many old school forums have been killed as a result of Discord's meteoric rise in popularity. Had some good memories in this place, glad it's not forgotten.

There is one Pokémon forum that I use that is still going on pretty strong.

Oh hi, I was asking this same question earlier.  I am relatively new to this site, only arriving in early September (whilst looking for good Pokemon nicknames), but yes, I am here, and I feel like I'm the only one here sometimes.  I try to be active, having participated in trivia and squads, and have a few good names for when the name rater gets back.  That's really all I have to say right now, wish I could talk more!
