    This is exactly what I typed, so everybody can read it:

    This was my original post that Jake posted here, but it was deleted. I was told that the meaning on what I said wasn’t clear, so I’ll explain what I meant on each point:

    "Birds spreading their wings" refers directly to what, as I feel, will be the future for a majority of currently young members on the aforementioned website. They will realize that Pokebeach may not, after all, be the place for them when they grow up. So the only real good analogy is birds leaving their nests when they learn to fly on their own.

    As for deleting the Pokebeach forums, I personally knew the forums weren't going to "vanish forever". Their website's information is almost constantly backed up and any information loss can and will be made up, I'm sure.

    When I was getting the link again to the thread on Pokebeach, I noticed WPM posted something else that interests me greatly:

    Unfortunately, not even with every possible stride that I could make, I am incapable of WPM stopping himself. Not to mention, I was the one that's been banned from there and was shortly banned here.

    If anybody CARES about this and has any questions, go ahead and ask.

    Tikitiki is real, I've spoken to him on IRC, as have several members in the channel who could have seen his very different IP.

    I don't particularly see why you needed to treat this like some conspiracy, you could have left with dignity or whatever and have been still welcome whenever to show up down the road.

    You seem to just be preaching a lot of pseudo-intellectual things about a site that was, well, primarily younger members.

    I like you and don't particularly hold a grudge over this. But I'm sad to see you have to leave our little community so drastically for reasons I believe are trivial. GOOD DAY SIR.

    FYI, this topic was authorized, as long as it stays within board rules.

    Yeah Pokebeach forums are full of monkeybuisness and I do not go there anymore because A- They have stuff like this going on and B- The trading forum is made up of a whole international base which costs more money to send cards rather than the more North American centered board hurr.

    I don't get what's going on, can somebody recap for me? (I haven't had my own internet for weeks)

    Ya, me too.

    I tried to post, but it dissapeared.

    Paraphrased: It said something about the topic wasn't really defined. I couldn't tell what had happened or why.

    Alright, basically what happened was I decided to delete the forums on Pokebeach. Then I was banned both there and here.

    Okay, so I try to block the public humiliation you would receive, taking the blame myself, wanting to do you a favor, but you go out of your way to post that you "deleted" PokeBeach forums on another forum so people know what you did?

    Wow, that's intelligent.

    So, uhhh, what exactly do you want people to know? What have you gained? We restored the forums. o_O Are you proud for being an annoyance and for wanting to publicly humiliate yourself in front of people? o_O You deleted the forums for... no apparently good or sensible reason.

    Yes everyone, Holy Star went out of his way as a past admin to delete our forums and ban everyone in our chat room, even though it was fixed right away. Uhh, touché, HS? Win?

    I am personally more appalled at the Gym, especially PokePop, for allowing this topic to exist. PokePop likes to get satisfaction out of rival sites having problems - he hopes people on his own forum will think the other site is worst or something - I don't know.

    What I don't get is why, for someone who likes to go around deleting posts and references to PokeBeach (you, PokePop, not that I really care), wants a whole topic devoted to the existence of the other forum?

    I mean really, what does PokeBeach have to do with the PokeGym, especially one of our admins who did something on our forums? What business is it of yours? You don't see us posting about bad things that go on the Gym, so why clutter up your board with topics related to other sites about situations 100% unrelated to you? o-O I also don't think anyone from your forum really cares about my forum, and that no one wants to see such a stupid and unrelated topic.

    Yeah, and bye Holy Star. You got your "dramatic ending." I'm happy for you.

    if it makes you feel better WPM, this thread WAS deleted by pokepop, until it was apparantly athorized and he put it back on
    still... why did you do this star?

    Who cares why he did it? Don't give him the satisfaction of the attention he is receiving, nor this topic's existence. Why does it really matter to anyone from here?

    im not giving him attention, im giving him absolute DISGUST
    if he tells me something like he did it because he could, ill be sure to watch my back around him, and never trust him again
    thats why i want to know why

    HolyStar... I fully give you the satisfaction of the attention from the existence of this topic.

    Ha,who cares who visits the site though really.I don't see the need to attack it, maybe theres something I missed?

    The thread belongs here. As long as it's within board rules it shouldn't be an issue. Pokebeach is very big in the Pokemon TCG Community and would come under TCG News and Gossip. People have different opinions and are free to express them as long as they don't break rules and the topics are in the right area.

    I left beach a long time ago. I was a strategist, I tried to get things moving, nothing happened, I left. There were only a handful of intellectual members, the rest were like "ZOMG CHARIZARD"- which I personally found to be annoying at times. There were members who were willing to learn when advice was given, others were noobs who shutdown the logical posters because the 'noobs' think they're better. One of the mods even gave up. I just think the Pokebeach forum is more trouble than it's worth. I visit the site for information, because the information is very nicely formatted and up to date... but I refuse to touch the forums with a 10-foot mouse clicker.

    meh, random thoughts on all of this

    btw, Holy, why did you delete the forums? o.o *justoutofcuriosity*

    EDIT: NVM! the whole birds and the nest thing- I get it.

    So you smash a bird's nest so that no birds can fly (using the "metaphor's" terms)?

    yeah, I don't agree with the deletion of the forums, I just think a lot of the users could be more open minded.

    Our forums are targeted to a younger demographic - kids. It's a place where they can post and not be embarrassed about what they ask, not be intimidated by older players, or intimidated/bashed by "groups" or "teams" of people who attack them.

    That's like criticizing Pokemon for the sheer amount of kids that are involved in it. :/
