Hey Ellie. Some things may or may not have been said on here before, but I think either way, they need to be said again.
The Serebii trading forums are, well, not that great, which is why this topic exists. Here's a few problems/suggestions I have.
1) The load times are terrible, and it's not my network. It's whomever is hosting the servers, not sure what you can or would do but it's definitely an issue right off the bat.
2) People need to be able to make their own various threads. Instead of me posting in a trade thread for events, let me make my own topic. A new forum for groups like EV, shiny, events would work.
3) I don't think forums for specific gen/Pokemon is so great. I think it could all go into one giant topic for small requests. That seems to clutter up the board but a single topic would work much better.
@Ellie, I'm thinking you would make it like ours where we distinguish certain things and then model the way we make topics after Neoseeker. I think that is ultimately the best thing for a forum like this.
Personally as a trader, because of these issues with the board, I don't use it, as big as a trader I have been in the past. I really hope that some of the staff agrees with me on some issues and allows some changes to be made.
