We need to get the place up and running again. Just because we have showdown doesn't make this place useless, especially since you're required to follow the strict smogon ruleset there; so this place could eventually turn into a place for alternative battle styles. Hell it was only a year or so ago when we had several dozen people on here every day!!! There was Ito, Chrono, L, Light, Drake, Zekrom, Pawn, Princess, Gabe, AK, etc.. etc.. too many to count.
It's honestly pretty sad to see it go the way of the Greninja (disappearing for no reason to the lifeless black hole known as ubers/forum death). We need to get some more people coming here, or at least start frequening more often ourselves! What's been up with Fro and Ito? They're still in the elite 4 iirc right?
