I think that, as people, we've grown apart. Back when all we thought, spoke, or worked on was Pokemon Platinum, back when that was a fresh off the press game, we all had at least one thing in common. Plus, we were years younger.

But now, we've grown up. Diversified. Of course not all of us are gonna go in the same direction- it's a big world out there and there's so many directions to go. Many of us are finishing up high school, or going to college. Maybe getting jobs. That's just the age that we're at now. I know that for me, I feel kinda out of place because I have my own house and my own car, and I'm married. Not to mention my plans for the future.

....Thinking about that makes me nostalgic and a little sad.

It's not that I don't want to connect with you guys, but it's more that I think that most of us have already moved on, and the people who still log in log in because hey, it's not Facebook lol

This is gonna get a bit sad

But I don't really know why I log in anymore.

I guess it's mainly because of Starrk because we have a few common interests, like Cars and GTA and stuff.

I have outside contact with people like Aryeh, DAF etc.

I don't log in because it's not facebook, i probably use facebook more than any other social medium to talk to my irl freinds, and otherwise I'm quite active on it.

But in general, I think the site died because early on we didn't have many "new" members due to delayed jump on the Gen 5 bandwagon.  And no Admin.

So we just stuck with current members

Members who grew out of pokemon and began to like other video games, like Loom, Daniel or Rushad.

Or started to have other interests like Parrot or Waldo.

Also members who where unsatisfied with how much Pokemon-playing members where active in the later years, like Orgo, JCB and many other competitive players.

Our current members got older, their tastes changed, and they preffered other things, like real life, over this website.
Hell I take long breaks from posting because I'm looking for a new car or playing games with loom or real life friends.

Life got in the way for most of us, back when we where in school it was much easier.

I tried reviving this site like 50 times, and tried very hard everytime, I guess I wasn't really apperciated or acknowledged for trying where others failed, i'm going to name drop, but people like JCB and TimF where practically ghosts.

and people like Rosim would bring in this realist attitude to it, and that would lower morale, effective killing my "revolution" to bring life back into the site.

Around when I became admin I was very happy because I could make a change, and I tried, again and agian, and it never worked.

I feel like I was one of the few who actually cared about this community, but now I have lost all that spark. The sites done.

You guys may as well find an IM service because I talk to others on skype and its much more active there than here. And don't go on about how that kills activity, because thats private stuff me and the others wouldn't mention here anyways.

Ontop of all this, Forums are a relic of the past, I feel like their time has come and gone, being replaced with Facebook, blogs and other types of media.
