Default Take a look at this...

i thought this title will attract you more
Okay, let me get this straight, so i think we are missing with a lot of amazing sections on the forum (i.e, Forum Games, A&D, RP, etc.,). To be honest, I too, feel boring because of the too few sections to hang around with here on PHO.
I think it will attract more foes to join the forum, and will entertain members to remain and stay active here.

Just thoughts though.

I completely agree. Forum games would be great, as well as the others. Your title did attract me more O_o

Forum games was removed because all people would do in the end was play them and not post in any of the other sections. RP Would be interesting to see but I think it wouldn't fit in and once again draw activity away fom the main focus.

We used to have forum games... but they were abused and resulted in the shutdown of one of the past forums...

Pretty much this. You know your forum has failed when the only posts are in the Daily Chit Chat and forum games.

Hey guise wat if we had liek a sister forum wear we talked about offtopic stuff and had gaemz thatd be coo right? We could haz farmville and that candy rush or whatever its called and that fappy bird, people like that right? Also roleplay. /me puts on robe and wizard hat

Basically, this. On the one hand, I can see wanting to have forum games, roleplay, etc. because those could be fun. But like they've said, in the past these things have ended up detracting from the main focus of the board. Since we aren't a general Pokémon forum like PC, it doesn't make as much sense to have a lot of things that aren't related to hacking and game development.

However, if someone wanted to start a roleplay thread or something in the off-topic section, that would be fine I guess. But I don't see a need to dedicate whole sections to those types of things.

If forum games were shutdown before, why not revive it? Maybe members now are more mature than before.
Why not try it again, right?

It still would lead to the same result the only difference between it being here and it being on PC is that PC has more sections meaning that it is less noticeable even though it is still has a lot more activity than other section e.g. rom hacking, pokemon trading card game etc.

EDIT: Not trying to be a jerk or anything, just saying. For now, we aren't adding a new section for this (but it should be fine if some related stuff goes on in off-topic. I'm certainly not trying to keep people from enjoying theirselves.)

Well, I'm not recommending just the GCorner.
