What was your forum name before?I havent posted in here forever, but can someone explain to me what the heck happened to this site? It's a complete ghost town and the forum has been really simplified.
Where are the people? Why do we have a mod with the no no word in his name? What?
I made this account around 4 years ago, I originally joined back in like... 2009 I think? I've had 3 accounts here since then lmao. This is the one I made after I started posting on twitter for like years or so, cause I was trying to consolidate my "brand".What was your forum name before?
Curious. It says you are a new member. And yes, social media took over and took over half of the Serebii population out.
Also, I'm sure members started families, grew away from the site, and well... COVID-19 as well.
Few of us are still latching on.
RIP to members such as JoshYeah, JB#s, Profesco, Pikapal Lyra, Ellie, etc...
And Joe is still around but I suspect Joe isn't Joe (Pokémon of the Week thread is still a thing).
It's possible other people are running the account as well. My opinion though, not fact.
You trying to get in the history books my guy? Write a whole textbook type wave okrrrrrrrrrt I see u chief, catch that bag~
Now that's a smart cookieYeah well, welcome to the Internet post-FaceBook/Twitter/Reddit/etc. It's not just Serebii, nearly every major specialized forum waned in popularity as the social media giants grew. Why use a dozen different sites like Serebii for all your various interests when you can use one site that covers everything? Or at least that's the idea I suppose. Personally I like to keep my interests separate, so here I still am.
Maybe. There are reports of people moving to Signal and Telegram, but those apps are in competition with platforms such as Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp, not Facebook Groups or Reddit. If privacy becomes a greater concern, then people may decentralize again when it becomes too inconvenient. And blockchain might bring them back a bit, but the messaging board as we see here on sppf is kind of dead. Mobile skins don't mean a thing if there are more convenient options out there.I have a feeling block chains are gonna bring forums back tho @Vernikova
