Hello Everyone,

Some of you may remember you, hopefully many of you do not (hopefully we have some new members, lol) I returned here for the first time in a while and was a little saddened by the lack of activity that I saw Sad

I myself am guilty of leaving the forum and not helping it survive and for that I am sorry Sad Most of you know my story and the only reason I can be on right now is because my parents let me on for a little while. I will not be able to spend as much time on the forum as I used to, but I will try to make a regular appearance here. Whoever the current admins are, I think all members should get together and try to get a lot of people back to the forum.

Basically, anyone who reads this, please try and spread news about the forum, when I left the forum was the most prosperous and had the most active members I had ever seen, I would really like to see it return to those levels. Yahoo Answers, and general pokemon chats are good places to try and advertise. Don`t just go there and say `Hey join our forum!` Battle them and get to know them so that they are more inclined to join. That`s how I used to bring in members.

Just keep it in mind, thanks Smile

Amazing to see you back, Pdog! And yes, the forum isn't as active as it had been, but we're getting back up with the help of great members that are able to take out time for the forum. Also, as you said in another post, there has been a lot of spam and people are trying to do a lot for posts, no names to be mentioned.

We all (hopefully) think it's fine that you left, we all have our reasons. I for one am looking forward to seeing this place active again! Hopefully you'll be allowed to come on regularly too. We are trying to rake up more members. We even have a new admin, Raikou, who is active and is helping a lot as well to make the forum active again.

As well as all that, we're trying to get more members (Did I tell you that Dede is a mod for that now? Very Happy), though the idea that you've suggested is good too. I am now going to try and get more members as well while I'm on Yahoo Answers. But of course, we should be able to answer someone's question as well, no? So I'll try to be more informative and bring people here, though it seems like a hard task! Hope to see you around again Pdog!

This is exactly why TER is never going to progress. Some people support spam (well, free posting in general) without rules and the others support the rules.

Until you get along and decide whats best, TER will just keep dying (dont go raging over what i just said, its just my opinion).

Its nice that Pdog came back, but he wont change much until you stop fighting over something meaningless.

Honestly, Dede, I found that FAR too offensive...
You need to calm down about that, and no one tried to blame you in particular for spamming. The 3 word rule is actually good, and then I agree with Skoch. We are all in favor of spam. Even I'm toning down now. But then, 3 words is actually very short to be spam too. I mean, you don't want people going around posting yes or no: That is definite spam.
Also, when I posted about pie, it was in the APPROPRIATE section, you see? That's why it's called Spamhaven. And Dede, no one wants you to leave, really. Not only because you're one of our most active members, but also because you are a member here as well as our friend. Smile No one is trying to make you feel bad, and in my opinion the others really are right: We are in favor of spam.
Now if you'll all excuse me, I got a little personal there...

Anyways, we were supposed to be celebrating that Pdog stopped by and not arguing about spam... -.-' Not that I believe it's not an important topic, it really is in-fact. But then, yay Pdog xD
