Topics in the forum are closed for a couple different reasons. One is that a topic has strayed too far from the original subject. Another reason topics are closed is because they are old and have no activity for an extended period of time.
If you want to bring back or to reference back to an old topic that has been closed you can link it within a new one. Here is an example: Closed topic example
The goal for our moderators is to keep things on topic, to maintain a friendly environment and to be an active part of the forums.
My goal with the forums is to keep topics generally related to Pokémon Go without the the drama and controversy that other venues have.
If anyone has specific issues with topic closure or forum moderators, please send me a PM.
Thank you all for sharing your Pokémon thoughts, ideas and experience with the world.
