    Because there are more than enough ways to tell who is a moderator.
    * It would solve the minimodding problem: you can see who is just trying to help you and who is a real moderator...
    * If someone talking to you, you can see immediately if that person is a moderator or just a normal member...
    (ok, you can search his name in that list, but I have no time for that and probably when your searching for a name in that list you don't see it (even if it is there...))
    As Cario pointed out above, looking at the username people already know who is a moderator. The forum provides you more than enough ways to see it.
    * I haven't time to learn that list... (and when a moderator changes his/her name, you got a problem...)
    Learn the whole list? We don't expect anyone to do that. But I cannot understand why someone would be in such a big hurry that they couldn't open up one tab, go to either the Forum Leaders page, or even check the forum page they're in and scroll all the way to the bottom.
    * I'm always wondering if the persons who's name is mentioned on the bottem of the forums even know that they are moderators... It would make it more personal when you see moderators posting themselves (when you can see in their posts that they are moderators), easier to ask something to them...
    Trust me, if someone is a moderator they are fully aware of it.
    * It would give a more safety feeling when you see that their are a lot of persons who make this forum clean and go smoothly...
    But there are!
    * It would also give thrust when you see moderators everywhere: you know when you ask them something, they will answer you or send you to someone who will answer you.
    You can do that by going to the list above, and there are Ask a Simple Question threads, and even a FAQ section.

    * I'm also wondering if those who's names are on the bottem sometimes come online... (ok, you can see that on their profile pages, but when you see it in their post it would make it more personal, easier...)
    You'd be surprised to know how many staff members actually already use Invisible Mode. And there are more than enough Staff members you can go to, to ask a question. If a Mod doesn't answer you, go to someone else, preferably a Super/Global Mod or Admin.

    To emphasize one of Sublime's points, I'm using invisible mode at the moment, because I'm on a hiatus (eg I've got some IRL crud that prevents me from being here enough to be of any major help). Does that mean that I'm not here? No, I'm just not counting on the fact that I'll be here at the moment I'm needed, but if someone in one of my sections asks a question and I notice it before another mod, I'll still answer it.

    More to the point, though, reaching -5 isn't the only reason something can be shut down; it might be impossible or unreasonable, or it might already exist in some form. -5 isn't the only reason for a post shutdown, it's just the main reason.

    Shouldn't there be a certain amount of posts you have to have before you vote?

    I think there should be a thread with all the ideas suggested so far, kinda like the list of games thread in the games forum. This will cut down on the amount of repeat threads, which isn't a big problem much of a problem now, but once we get to 10-15 paages and 6 months in new members who haven't seen all of these suggestions yet will start posting, and may repeat suggestions that have been idle/refused/developing already.
    If we are having a battle and I disconnect, it is 100% unintentional; my power goes off often and each time my modem resets.

    Gone until Aug, 10 or something for a trip w/out net access. C u after that. If I suddenly dissapear after that you can bet I got bad grades on my IGCSE's, since results are coming out the week afterwards.

    Is this forum specific for extensions to forum? How about the official IRC?

    IRC is separate from Bulbagarden it terms of rulings. Talk to Sato.

    which, judging from your name, I bet you did.

    I hope this is in the right place.

    If this forum is upgraded to Vbullitin5, it would be nice to have a slight change of how the forum sections are laid out, as even now, I struggle to find the right place to post, which is kind of worrying, as I don't want to post in the wrong place and get a bad rep.

    It would be nice to have a layout such as:


    • Announcements and Events (Sub forum - Rules, Welcome)
    • Current Event - XY
    • Pokemon Games (Sub forums: GTS, Lost Tower, Battle Corner)
    • Anime and Other Media (Subforums: Manga, Anime)
    • Trading Card Game
    • Collections
    • General Pokemon Chat (to replace pokemon world)
    • Fandom and Creative Corner (Sub Forums: Shipping, Writing, Art, Video, Photography, General Fandom)
    • Gaming (RPGs, War Room, Fun and Games)
    • Forum Games
    • General Off Topic Chat
    • Bulbagarden Projects
    • Bulbagarden News

    and then the bottom forums.

    It might just be me, but if similar forums are condenced into subforums, it would make the forum less daunting to new members, as the site is quite busy looking. It might just be something that I would like to see though, I dunno...just a few ideas in the future!

    I have an idea. Can we include the ability of being able to post attachments in Visitor Messages and
    be able to upload more files from our computer like in an email account (EG: Sound, Video files (Mp4, wav. 3gp. Mp3. format)
    with the limit of 25 MB?
