I just thought, what if serebii went a litttle "advance." By that I mean, making more things, like a PHP RPG, it will be cool, and it will attract even more members and so on, what do you guys think?

Imagine it though, it would be pretty cool, it will have original things. The good thing is I'm actually experinced, I also made a RPG with a friend of mine, if you want, I can post the link.

Nah, I wouldn't like it. This should be in the suggestion thread too

I like the idea, very cool, but I don't think that it would happen. But there is a chance sometime in the future:D

Anything is possible with PHP ;). Here look at an example: http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?p=3504122#post3504122 .

I, being the simple-minded forum browser I am, am intimidated by things like PHP RPG, though I can guess the latter is role-playing game. I used to play an online game awhile ago, but it added a huge amount of content after it got out of beta testing, and I guess I was just a little overwhelmed when used to simpler things.

Keep It Simple Stupid ;)

Heck though, maybe I'm the only one who doesn't understand a lot of it though. Just my two cents.

For me, I they should. It would complete serebii. It is actually very easy, you make sessions, and add few sql codes and IF's and done.

Meh, It's Serebii's decision, and I trust him

We did have video games you could play on the site. It ended up choking the server to death. I don't think Joe wants to step in that bear trap again.

The sites good as it is, though that is a good idea. I just go to Bulbagarden if I want to play the arcade games.

Uh....no? Where's your head, lad? You might want to check all of the previous failures of ideas, sum them up, and see if your idea fits in anywhere, which it does. Albeit "anything" is possible with php, it's a bad idea for this site.

SPP is not going to be the next Pokemon Crater. -.-
Basically, the idea of Serebii.net is to provide information quickly, not for silly games, etc.. Take a look at Pokemon Crater. It's despised by many and I don't want Serebii.net to go that way too and neither do most people here.

Exactly. SPP is used for info. Games slow a site down, and that is not what SPP needs.

Do you think Serebii needs more members? Of course it needs, but SPPf is getting enough members even without a RPG.

O RLY!!! only 14, 594 members. Yeah, SPPf has enough already.

Also if serebii didnt make so much rules for the RPG there would be more members i know about 20 people that went from serebii to PE2K just because of the RPG and other forums rules

That would make it 14, 974 members. No real difference

I agree with Ninjit, because look at Pokemon Crater it is full of noobies

Lol rules are the foundation of civilized Pokemon discussions.

If we had no rules, there would be smilie abuse, flaming (and other things) to a much larger degree than there is already.

And they aren't that bad the rules, it prevents spam in the RPG Section for sure.

Um, no, I don't think it would be a good idea, but if Joe, the owner of this site, were to allow it, then he would have to upgrade the server to bigger size and the cost.
