    If I have to guess, most people would nowadays chat on online services such as Discord. With these forums being a relic of an era where those things didn't exist yet. That said, it's kinda sad to see places like this neglected like that.

    No, I never comment on forums like this. Never.

    I still do sometimes. Although, more activity would still be nice.

    Yes, I am still active on forums, even non-pokemon forums.

    imo, forums are still a great place for discussions online, but most forums nowadays seem to have less activity as well as other problems.

    Yeah... In many ways, forums like this one can be considered as a relic. Yeah, they can be great to meet people and all. But since most people are elsewhere nowadays, the implications should be clear.

    Why would anyone use a newfangled thing like a forum when there are perfectly fine alternative communication services like the telegraph or Pony Express?

    Forums are great. It's a way to have deeper/better conversations with people who have the same interests from all over the world. The other way to communicate with these people is Facebook, but the conversations are definitely not going as deep over there.

    I'm really active on fora. I've only lurked for a long time on this one, but I'm really active on another forum where I also have an in real life friendgroup on.

    Forums are definitely on the decline, but they're not dead yet. Dedicated forum users won't let that happen, at least not for a while. I only go on Pokemon forums, and I won't name any because I think it might be against the rules, but my primary forum is still very active, and I know there are one or two other Pokemon forums besides this one that still get a good bit of activity.

    I see... I guess you can PM at least some of the places you like to visit if you want.

    Yeah, I will admit that message boards are largely being replaced by other social media outlets. But this site has managed to maintain quite a lot of its member base.

    I think it is because of social media that discussions can take place outside the format of a forum. Other social media places provide multimedia abilities such as recording voice or video and disseminating that widely and readily.

    Forums can’t do that.

    I was so used to the old Serebii, I kinda can't into this new version. Just turns me off, maybe if I post more I'll get used to it but idk.

    Yeah no, it was easier to navigate. Here I don't evrn know how to quote or what to click. It's not mobile friendly at all.

    I like forums like this. I find it easier to have a conversation on sites like these then on most social media platforms.

    I agree. And the quality of conversation is usually better here than in social media.
