    Bitch, please. Some of use live and breathe pokemon on this forum. ;)
    We certainly do have enough interest - and more than enough pokemon-related threads scattered around.

    Do eet. Only new forums I'd like to see are Minecraft, Pokemon and RPG.

    If you'd like, Jon, I'll find as many of the pokemon-related threads as I can and make a list of them for ease of moving to the new subforum.

    Minecraft, Pokemon, Elder Scrolls. These three I shall trade my mother's virginity for. If they aren't used enough to justify their existence, then I shall singlehandedly populate them and develop a dozen other personalities who will engage in discussion and friendly rivalry with me.

    We could easily have a hundred pages in the main thread just debating CHIM and trying to explain how all of Talos' backstories are simultaneously true if I - and I assume at least some of the other lore-buffs around - didn't try to avoid shitting Lore all over it.

    An RPG forum sounds completely retarded, especially considering that the way you'd have it set up makes it functionally identical to the current Gaming forum.

    On topic: Minecraft. Maybe turn that Pokemods forum into a general pokemon one, as no one is using the current one right now and no one will.

    LoL I'd say just barely deserves a subforum**, the other suggestions made so far, not so much.

    **And that's only if people will post trying to help others, and not be raging assholes in the entire thing.

    Seems like you're missing a noun, Mid.

    Edit: Nope, it doesn't. Apparently I missed the difference between "lol" and "LoL."

    General FPS, MMORPG, RTS forums rather than one for each specific game, maybe?

    Done. The name change will happen later. Start using it.

    I love the game, but am terrible at it. Have not played in a while, but maybe I should start again...

    On topic: Perhaps a section for ARTS games? LoL, HoN, DotA, DotA 2, all (except maybe HoN) have their following, but only LoL has one large enough to warrant an exclusive sub-forum.
    Yet, having one in a separate forum from the others, considering their similarities, seems a bit odd. At least, to me it does...

    LoL shouldn't have it's own. It should be shared with all other MOBA style games. LoL consists of a few threads that honestly could've been fine left the was it was, with a usergroup, a listing in the masterlist thread, and a sticky. Let's not get into the habit of throwing up subforums for everything guys, I took out a fuckton of them before because it was getting confusing as hell to try to find stuff, when everything was niched out to hell and back.

    Not to mention getting on a Skype channel, or into a LoL game with other DLP members will teach you more about the game then a "tips" style thread in a subforum would ever accomplish.
