Partially because things have been a bit slow around here lately, recently I noticed that we have far too many boards on our forums. After discussing it over with the rest of the staff, we decided to combine similar boards to cut down on clutter and perhaps drive some more discussion by making things simpler/less categorized.

The changes are:
1. Pokeathlon Dome ("Sports"), Jubilife TV Station ("TV/Movies/Books"), Goldenrod Radio Tower ("Music") and Mauville Game Corner ("Video Games") were combined into one catch-all entertainment forum ("Lumiose City" because that is the largest Pokemon location yet and the hub of the Kalos Region.)

2. RBY/FRLG were combined into one forum ("Kanto Region and Sevii Islands"), GSC/HGSS were combined into one forum ("Johto Region and Sinjoh Ruins") and RSE/ORAS are now combined into one forum. Most of the other mods pushed for everything before Generation VI to be combined into one subforum but I thought it was too drastic and decided to see if my idea to split things by Region would work as a trial. If it doesn't, RBY-BW2 will be combined into one forum later. Admittedly, ORAS is a reason I thought it was time to do this merging spree because having a separate board for every single main series game AND remake was getting quite redundant.

3. Canalave Library ("fanfics") and Lilycove Museum ("fanart") were combined into one fanwork forum.

Additionally, the Kalos Region icon was changed from Pirouette Meloetta to Malamar, and the moderator list for ALL GLORY TO THE FLOATING CLEFFA was finally fixed.

Hope you all like these changes! Personally, I think the board looks a lot cleaner now.

I'm liking the changes very much, they seem to be both practically and decoratively sound. No longer will we find people occasionally asking questions about RBY in the FRLG forum or vise versa, among other things.

I agree, there was a shietload of inactive boards, even some that I haven't dared to visit yet.

I went on the forums yesterday and looked at the main page. "It looks clean, wut happened" I couldn't find what had changed so I thought it was my imagination lol.

The board looks lovely now in comparison to before. I also hope it becomes more lively around here, I myself though haven't been around for some weeks again which I might be able to avoid doing in the future...
