    I support this. Since the community here is relatively small it would be a pretty nifty way to get to know one another.

    I've wanted to go to some, but I have had trouble rallying friends to go, or they fell on times I couldn't go (IIRC the last one I could've gone to before I went to Taiwan fell on the weekend of my friends' wedding reception). I haven't looked very hard for such events in Taiwan, but I really doubt that very many expats go to them. I mean, why would you if Japan is closer?

    I think it's a few things like people moving on and this forum being a lot stricter than other social Media outlets. I mean, no custom avatar and signature limitations in almost 2017 is crazy. In the old days it was fine since the site had lag issues but the big update like 4 or so years back fixed that. For this section, it's probably just easier to talk about your misc stuff in detecated outlets

    i hate to say it, but this is pretty much it. Plus a lot of people use Reddit, regardless of its quality, because of the convenience

    yeah uh i dont think the avatars and signatures have anything to do with it considering reddit has neither of those. but some of us still prefer not to have mobile pages lag to hell due to every special snowflake feeling they need a 5000000000 kb gif in their sig


    i think it's just bc dedicated hobby forums as a whole have gone down. reddit is horrible but you can make one reddit account and be able to access sections for just about anything you can think of. until the site completely shits the bed (and it seems to be getting close with everything thats happened lately) and something else rises to take its place, thats probably how its gonna be

    It doesn't seem to be all dedicated hobby related forums in my experience, I know of some that are still very much active. Though those ones having a much older average demographic than SPPF.

    I have sort of broken down and just used reddit for some things, but it's really not the same, Reddit is kind of like an D tier forum, mostly only capable of handling the most shallow of content.

    I am surprised the site isn't doing well though, everyone I know or meet uses Serebii for their pokemon info. And that's more people than I can keep track of.

    I personally use Bulbapedia for general info and gamefaqs and 4chan for news since it breaks there first. I prefer the wiki entities style for Pokemon. It's a lot neater than the main site here. Smogon gets out competitive battling articles faster without needing to wait a week for one Pokemon. This site does feel more homey, but that's kinda negated by a lot of users leaving

    I honestly like individual forums better than reddit, because at least you like... get to know people on here.

    the site itself is doing well, it's just the forums that have dwindled, but that seems to be the case for a lot of pokemon forums. reddit seems to be a lot faster for breaking content than gfaqs or 4chan, in fact that's pretty much all i use reddit for since the discussions/etc are terrible. as for main site content, i still prefer serebii's info pages to bulbapedia's and if you use the search bar it is usually super easy to find what you want. competitive, yeahhh... but i play vgc and not smogon tiers and there isnt really a good vgc site anymore. nb **** the bed and smogon's vgc isnt that great either so i just play on showdown and whatever

    Plus Reddit is having some problems of it's own now, but parts of reddit have always been a problem.

    Yeahhhh. When I first started using the site it was /r/jailbait, then fph, now Trp incels etc



    Also it is POURING outside when none of the news outlets seemed to estimate such a big storm. California drought over?

    I never really go to the "manosphere"* section of reddit, so I wouldn't know anything about that.

    My issue is that a lot subs that are potentially interesting are really slow in the activity range, and a lot the more active ones are just flooded with newbie posts. It seems to be more of a place to post selfies or ask for advice, or other stuff like that than it is a forum replacement. Which isn't a bad thing in of itself, those are useful functions, some of which I even use myself.

    *i think that's what they call it

    well besides the disgusting underbelly of bigoted idiots, the biggest issue with reddit is their algorithm. things that are newer and highly-upvoted rise to the top, which means something like a longer text post that took actual thought will take maybe 10 minutes for some to read and vote on, while an image macro you can read from the thumbnail will have already earned 1000 upvotes and the same newbie questions that have been asked 100x will also have gathered a few upvotes by people too lazy to look for the answers on their own.

    that, and the admins try to have it both ways. they dont want to take responsibility for bad subreddits but they also want to take credit for the good ones and are horrible about taking suggestions and fixing things for the subreddit moderators.

    I almost snagged up a NES Classic at Target, but someone beat me to it. Oh well. Had I bought it, I was going to gift it for Christmas.

    Gamefaqs boards annoy me because every game that has any ounce of disappointment with them has to be that the developer is terrible and they should apologize.
    SSB Wii U and FF XV for example.

    Also, when Tracer was shown as being gay, it had to be dem der Es Jay Double Yous.

    I mean, Overwatch has already achieved some level of diversity already with it's cast such as yoga robot monks.

    The internet is the one place were nerds and rejects can and will be the bullies.

    After a while, the term, "SJW", when used in the opposition, becomes a shallow and transparent buzzword that is used as a double standard.
