This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

Looks like there won't be an X/Y social board.

Yeah it's why this board will die a slow agonizing death. It's already in the process too.

Now this will be a beautiful death. I'm jumping out the window, I'm letting everything go.

The site hasn't made social boards for games in YEARS. The last time Allen made an exception was for this board here, which caused a lot of problems from day one. He caused it a failed experiment at that point. Social boards for games are over. There wasn't a game social board created for years before this one too.

They let us play with markers...
...But I keep trying to draw infinity.

What if this board was added to the split list?

To be fair, the messing that went on in the previous pkmn social boards should have indicated there would have been a good deal less trolling if it was tried for a different game.

Pretty sure the possibility for such problems to happen is always there. After all, the bigger social boards like RI and CE always had a fair share of "stuff" going on, and the X/Y general boards are not a pretty sight either, especially since Allen is expanding leniency on off-topicness. I don't see how misbehavior can diminish so drastically just by not having a social board - it's as if by banning weed, nobody ever smoked weed again. Users can be just as messy if they want to. And that's what moderators are for.

Sure, there's no real big plus, aside from uncluttering the general boards a bit, general positive feedback from the userbase, and the rather nice community that is left when the troublemakers calm down. And I don't see a lot of cons either, aside from that theory of board problems disappearing, the trouble of creating a new board (shouldn't be hard) and the bandwidth cost (should be low). Plus it's been a common practice for many years before Allen stopped doing it. Sure, now that he's stopped there's not a lot of motivation to restart, but I just don't think Allen should have stopped at all.
