Okay guys and gals. I think that the forums can still be saved, but we need ideas. I think that starting the league will help to get activity going again, as members will be able to challenge for badges and such. I would love to get it going so let me know what you guys think. Thanks.

Here are all the suggestions that have been come up with that Storm and I are looking into right now
1) Cmndr suggested that we have a battle frontier, seeing as we don't exactly have a lot of members, as opposed to a league (it might steal some of the thunder of your league as well Sabe)
2) Storm and I were thinking of making the forums more community driven. That means that if somebody wants to try something on the forums (eg. a battle frontier), that person could manage it as well if they wanted. The mods and admins would only be around to prevent chaos and approve ideas.

And we definetly need more ranks. People will always challenge and come on to try to earn better or newer ranks.

Option 2 sounds great Mamba, and Cmndr did mention his idea but I think it might not help here either as it would involve two forums and this forum will begin to thrive again when more activities and such are introduced. I do think that yourself and the mods should still be approving ideas to avoid too many events at once, but the idea sounds great.

So far I have been considering changing the forum name to StormMamba Forums as it doesn't just specifically focus on my name and Mamba has just as much to do with these forums as I do. I am hoping that some of the new ideas Mamba and I came up with can come into play. Revival needs revamping. If we are going to bring these forums alive again, we are going to have to change a few things aside from the name so that we can once again create an engaging environment for the members. I am in full support of a community driven forum as it would take a lot of pressure off of Mamba and I and make our jobs easier.

Part of me is still a bit hesitant to try and revive these but I guess it is worth a try. For the next few weeks I will be working on some things to ignite the fire in these forums again (like a sweet new banner for one thing) and hopefully we can liven things up around here once again.

Alright so things are slowly coming together. I have made a new banner, and some new icons. Hopefully you guys didn't see my icon prototypes as they were horrible, but I am fairly satisfied with the current ones. I know pokeballs seems kind of typical and unexciting but I felt that it would work better than just focusing on a specific Pokemon. This way, it appeals to a larger audience.

Now I think most of the visual changes have been made. Now we have to work on getting the forum to where we want it to be. At this point we are still putting our focus on a community driven forum that still uses admins and mods to keep things under control. I am going to need help from many of you to get this going, if you have ideas and suggestions please share them! Thanks everyone!

Well Storm, you know you have my full support on this buddy. I have volunteered to start up the league and can moderate it if you like. I also think having maybe a revival tourney to get the competition going will also be great. A unique tourney will be awesome. I will edit my post once I come up with an idea lol.

I was also wondering if there is a certain way in which to advertise the forums to not just new members but existing members as some may believe that the forums is being closed when it is not. Should all active members start advertising on youtube and such or is there another way to do it to have the most impact. Any suggestions would be great.

sorry to double post but I was also wondering if I would get the go ahead to revive the league, or would it be better to have Donnie's( you know you like your nickname Kingdon lol) colosseum up first. Just curious.
