This site is dead because

1 Only hacking allowed.
2 No offtopic talks
3 No gaming central ( Playing games guesses)

Conclusion : Hackers are only allowed. Hackers offline no game no fun.

This site is not dead because

1 Hackers still post here.
2 Some exclusive games, tutorials and resources can be found here.

Conclusion : Come here hackers. Go away hack players.

So both yes and no.

There are sections dedicated to Homebrew and coding and there were sections for general Pokemon Discussions and Gaming, but activity was never actually strong enough for it to have it own section, so the sections slowly faded into general off-topic sections.

We've all said that was the vibe we unintentionally produced, and sadly we haven't been able to shake that vibe since.

The site is fairly dead but I don't know that those are the reasons why, I'm fairly sure it's mostly that we don't have much to offer that other sites don't do better. We actually do allow offtopic posts here, we have a section specifically for them (games are also allowed in there). We don't have a fangames/game development section anymore because it got very little to no activity so it was dropped. That said, it's only dead in activity. A lot of the staff members only check in every now and then due to the low activity but we've not given up on it yet, we do have future plans that I'm sure everyone will find exciting. Most of our activity is actually on our sister site, romhack.me, which is a social network for everyone from hack players to hackers and even those who do neither (I myself neither hack nor play hacks anymore). Feel free to check it out if you are interested in discussion in a less forum centric format

Sorted that for you dude, sorry about that. Hack threads have to be approved by a moderator or admin before they show up, and we don't get notified when there are posts waiting for approval (at least, I don't).

Well, we've tried countless times to revive this site. It gets a little action and becomes a limp noodle again. It's a pretty sad cycle. At one point this was a site controlled by extremely elitist opinions, when we changed the name to RHO, we wanted to actually encourage players to learn to hack and understand how some of it actually works. With that, we also invited other kinds of hackers, it was meant to be general hacking. Of course we only got like 1 or 2 of those kinds of hacks, and we slowly became PHO again to focus on Pokemon hacking.

We've had a lot of issues with staff drama in the past and the mods all like anime which actually is driving some users away, it really kills the site. The people I want to mod just don't have the time or energy for it anymore.

I loved PHO, and I still do. I hate to see the way it is today. For now, just keep posting your tutorials, your hacks, your lets plays. Maybe one day we'll figure something out and become a learning resource again. Unfortunately, Pokecommunity, WaH, irc chats and Skeetendo are just established and superior to what we offer. I'm sorry it ended up like this as a forum. We were a community and a family, and even I have run out of energy and passion to keep it going.

For sure I will try to be as much active as I can, but the thing is people here are not engaging with the posts much, so In my opinion you should try such thing which will make all the people get attracted towards it and they cant resist without it
Its actually very easy to say but harder enough to execute but I will support you to the best I can
