    i think we oughta add a wifi sub-forum in UT for wifi trading/battling. maybe even divide that subforum up into those two categories. it'll cater to the newest generation and we'll probably see a lot more traffic (although i'm sure many of you are opposed to this and the kind of people we'll attract :^().

    thoughts etc.

    also we should rename uncharted territory.

    Dunno. As far as trading goes that's what the trading board is for, but...

    Is there any reason two threads won't suffice? All anyone who wants to battle would really need to check would be the -end- of the thread, and the same goes somewhat for trading as well.

    Honestly, I don't think trades and battling are really something a forum can do. If we really wanted to support this concept, we'd probably be better off making an IRC channel for it (granted we'd be ripping off #SPP-wifi but whatever).

    a lot of people are intimidated by the trading thing you've got, surgo. they prefer just posting what they have/want on a forum; i don't mind catering to them.

    and battling is just pc++ really, but we are THE premiere competitive battling source and i don't think we should lose that position. having a battle forum would probably help, i think.

    There were talks of making a Wi-Fi subforum and I said I would do it the day of the release, but I didn't. We will discuss this on IRC tomorrow and try to find a solution.

    One of these "I can't see why not, let's try it out and then discard the entire thing if it doesn't work" things, in my opinion.
