We need posts right now. I would only post a project if you're dedicated to it.

I think changing the name back to PHO is a good idea. There needs to be some sort of niche to be filled to make people come back and it's the name a lot of people know and remember. I know when PHO turned into RHO I kinda just left and became inactive. Now changing the name back to PHO doesn't necessarily mean we just say no to hacking of other sorts, it just means that we have a focus and can continue to do what this site has been doing for years. Making good old pokémon hacks. Just take a look at the hack section right now, all we got are gb, gba, and a nds romhack. All the other sections are empty and we got maybe 3 or 4 hacks that are not pokémon. By making this a rom hacking forum, instead of just competing with PC and WaH!, we are now competing with SMW Central, GBA Temp, and other more vocal communities that draw in people more than me do. All in all, nothing would really change, aside from the name.

Agreed. It is a positive change to go back to PHO, we're only hurting ourselves by staying competing with other RH forums.

I mean the main reason we don't have a lot of traffic at the moment is that we have had a history of disappearing for months on end and then rebooting. With reboot after reboot, our community is now fragmented and I don't think we will ever get back our traffic levels to when we were TPB unless we do something.

We had this same discussion going on a couple of weeks ago
Mewthree9000 has point though.

I guess I could try contributing more into this myself, but I'm just being lazy. Haven't really cared that much about anything related to rom hacking lately.

But well, I guess I'm also leaning towards changing the name to PHO. If we want a pokemon centered hacking community that stands out from the rest, the name should change as well. On other hand, if we do manage to make this forum larger and attract lots of new members, how would this forum turn out any different from PC ? Skeetendo Inc. used to be a great place, and it still is, but there are now more and more newbies around who don't bother learning at all. Though some do, but not everyone.

I think that going back to PHO is a good call. It's really hard to try and attract a broader audience when, as a general rule, the active users don't seem to care about the other areas that much. It's like when that person posted a Mario hack on PokéCommunity and acted surprised when almost nobody cared. Even though we claimed to be a general emulation community, I'm sure the same would happen here a lot of the time as well. I think its best to stick to what we know and enjoy. That's why I still hack Gen II, even though I know people tend to ignore Gen II hacks these days because they can't see past the graphics. Just my opinion.

A lot of us have just not cared and have been lazy. Meanwhile the community in general have been dying while old users of interest who have in the past been the full front force in hacking are just disappearing one after another while new users who are just getting into the community that need direction are just standing there scratching there head not knowing what to do. Without the advancements HackMew, LuHo, D-Trogh, and Kawa, GBA hacking would be just as NDS Hacking is now.

I know there are a lot more old users who have contributed a lot to the community but I haven't been around for 2 years and my memory is drawing a blank.

But we need to encourage learning and--before attracting the newbies--attempt to attract the pros and experienced hackers.
