-------------------------------------------

Hey guys, as some of you might have noticed on the top right hand corner of the forum, we have a "tweets" icon.

Yes, this does mean PokéLounge has its own twitter account that will be regularly updated with news about the forum and interesting threads & events that are going on within the community :)
The PokéLounge's twitter is;
@PokeLoungeNeo


The twitter account will be managed by Phi and I who will be advertising about new threads that you guys have made so new PokéFans can join in on the fun too!

We hope that you enjoy this new feature to the forum and will be very interested in any feedback and suggestions on the idea =)

This seems a little unnecessary to me. I mean, if you guys have announcements or news about the forum, we already visit the forum regularly, so wouldn't it be best to just announce it here? We'll all see new interesting threads because we're forumgoers. Getting random fans of Pokemon to join the forum seems kinda dishonest, since there's no Pokemon discussion allowed here. I can see that it's better to try and get more people to come to the website and become a part of the community though, and that's more than enough reason, I suppose.

That's my two cents, anyway.

I understand what you are saying about the current community members in the forum ^^

The main purpose of the twitter account is to encourage people to sign up to Neoseeker and to participate in PokéLounge as well as other forums/PokéForums. It's also to experiment what difference it could make to the forum. Some of the NeoWikis have seen sharp rises in the amount of contributors due to them advertising the NeoWiki frequently on twitter with news relating to the wiki and news about the game the NeoWiki is about in general.

We thought it would be a good idea since Phi moderates the section that Pokémon game forums belong to and I moderate a trading forum which the new participants may venture to.

Furthermore, PokéFans can let their hair down in here and the tweets that will be sent will encourage the onlookers to talk about something that is not Pokemon. =)

This is a really smart idea you guys cooked up.

What is the contingency plan for the Twitter account when either Phi or Amsey moves on from this current position?

    It gets passed onto the new mod. I don't see what the problem is. xD If they're trustworthy enough to be a mod then I assume they're trustworthy enough to run a Twitter account.

...I didn't say it was a problem, I was just curious as to if you were hoping to have this as a permanent fixture of the forum (and thus, passed on to incoming moderators) or if it was just going to be a testing ground for you and Amsey to play with.

Don't get me wrong, I think it is a fantastic idea. I guess my mind just always thinks of the 'what if's' first.

Like I'd let Icekickseverything on this account, I can imagine some of the tweets on it right now D=

Thanks for the support PikaPower13! :D
It would be great if you could do that ^^

walnuts We are currently just testing the water with this idea to start off with, see if the community likes it & that takes off and then hopefully having the twitter account as a permanent feature. Pretty much what Phi said but if the twitter is successful when the time Phi or I demote or move on, of course we will encourage the new moderator of PokeLounge to keep the twitter account up-to-date and tweet appropiate messages, but I would like to think that if a new moderator comes in, they are going to be someone who keeps this going if it does become successful. ^_^
