jawgn: smogon's hella informal yo. real-time chat (i.e., showdown's old gens channel, irc) is probably a better medium than a forum for that sort of thing. Feb 19, 2016 6:38:04 GMT 1
jawgn: or a chatbox idk Feb 19, 2016 6:38:10 GMT 1
talenheim: That doesn't seem to be how I'm seeing it. For me, Smogon's all work, just focusing on the tier without much joking around, at least compared to, say, the ORAS OU subforum. Feb 19, 2016 18:56:39 GMT 1
talenheim: Though I guess that it would make more sense to populate #gsc or use the GSC PO chatroom, I don't think borat's ever touched PS and the Old Gens room is mostly filled with nostalgic baddies asking for challenges with their in-game teams. Feb 19, 2016 18:58:18 GMT 1
Tal: should probably clarify, I just see no sense of community in Smogon, and I think it'd be a good idea to try and set it up elsewhere Feb 19, 2016 20:20:09 GMT 1
piex / disaster: there's a sense of community on PP but we've had poor luck really gaining much in the way of a gsc community on there. Talenheim if you want to try and grow the GSC community I'd recommend trying that :) Feb 21, 2016 20:39:02 GMT 1
talenheim: yeah pp to me seems to be a reincarnation of RBY2K10, being that RBY is practically everyone's main tier and everything else is more side-metas to avoid burnout. TBH the best option is probably to revive/make #gsc, if we're gonna do anything at all. Feb 22, 2016 17:28:50 GMT 1
piex / disaster: I mean our ADV season got as many players as our RBY one did (32+), when pokebattle's out ORAS will be a bigger factor (since we'll have a main sim to play it on) and our GSC is doing okay in spite of the fact the meta's dead and most of the good people r Feb 23, 2016 19:17:55 GMT 1
piex / disaster: gone or don't care or don't want to revive it. We've had a decent amount of good and great players on over time and some like beds still use it regularly. It'd only take a little push to really get GSC going on there, it has the structure ready for it, the Feb 23, 2016 19:18:45 GMT 1
piex / disaster: staff willing to host and manage everything you could want, the enthusiasm to see further exploration and the possibility of change isn't taboo, and we don't have the bureaucracy of smogon. I mean an IRC channel or something too might be an okay idea but Feb 23, 2016 19:19:26 GMT 1
piex / disaster: forum-wise if you want control and to actually do something with it, e.g. have a council, PP gives the capacity to do it much quicker, with more ease, and much much less need of approval. Feb 23, 2016 19:20:11 GMT 1
piexplode: oh i can log in easily enough.. anyway also the gsc (and oras) seasons currently got 16 players a time and 32 a time for the rby/adv, and dpp is on its way in a month or two. And it's also like the only place gsc ubers is ever discussed either tbh. Feb 23, 2016 19:27:18 GMT 1
piexplode: so, what do you think? Feb 24, 2016 19:16:47 GMT 1
talenheim: council? My purpose for this was to set up more of a neighborhood gathering than a conference meeting. My problem with PP is that it's a new place, and for people who are fine with going along but only with a "why not" mentality, they aren't gonna sign up Feb 24, 2016 20:35:27 GMT 1
talenheim: places like here or IRC, they've probably already been, so it wouldn't have that problem Feb 24, 2016 20:36:07 GMT 1
talenheim: idk, I don't think foruming is truly needed when smogon exists. IRC is probably the best idea tbh. Just need to get people to log into #gsc - not hard since it's just an extra line to type Feb 24, 2016 20:38:13 GMT 1
piexplode: I'm just saying if you do want to do foruming PP > Smogon Feb 25, 2016 21:44:03 GMT 1
isah3h3: smogon is cool. irc is cool. i'd be down for an irc channel Mar 9, 2016 0:36:44 GMT 1
mystery: im the best Mar 11, 2016 12:20:20 GMT 1
