    It's sad to see it pass, but since the release of Black and White, the place has been empty. All that's ever posted there now are David's updates on Technical Machine (still really cool!) and necrobumps from users trying to be cute. The interest in the 4th gen metagames has waned to the point where a Gen 4 tag could be added to Ruins of Alph to support what little 4th gen discussion goes on while Stark Mountain could be moved to closed forums.

    yea i agree with this. stark mountain is a huge forum for a tiny amount of activity at the moment. a gen 4 tag would fit nicely in ruins of alph; good idea man.

    Seems sensible. I'd move some of the still active threads (Like the Technical Machine replays) straight into Ruins of Alph with a new tag. The only thing GenIV seems to be used for is tournament play, to cover more metas.

    It could upset players who do still love, and read the gen IV stuff regularly. Can't please everyone though.

    Not to sound annoying but I have a DPPt Warstory that I posted a couple of days ago in Stark Mountain. Would this be deleted or moved to Ruins of Alph with a Gen 4 tag?

    I'm pretty sure that would be moved. The gist of the suggestion was to move old and rotting threads away and establish a Gen 4 tag in Ruins of Alph for the handful of active threads.

    Even though I guess this was approved, this suggestion seems to have been buried for a while. I know the site has a lot on its plate at the moment, but is there any chance this could happen in the near future?
