    Goodbye Shiny Hunters United.

    Hello everyone,

    As you can see, the forum isn't what it used to be. We started Shiny Hunters United back in 2011 when the former owner of the Shiny Club on serebii essentially left it to rot. Due to spam and overall bad posts, the mods there decided to shut down Shiny Pokemon clubs on serebiiforums forever. Zabi, the founder of this forum, decided to make a new forum and Shiny Hunters United was born.

    For over 2 years, we were quite busy. The chatbox was always lively and the forum was booming. We always had lots of activities, including shiny races where teams of 3/4 would shiny hunt and whoever got the most shinies won the race. Shortly after that, activity declined quite quickly when most of the admins/mods and members slowly drifted away. I tried keeping the forum going by myself for nearly two years, then made a few members mods to help out, but it wasn't enough. Since the middle of last year I've noticed a huge decline in people posting. Real life took hold of a lot of people so they just stopped showing up completely. The chatbox slowly went from having 10+ people a day down to one or none for sometimes a week at a time.

    With the declining activity on the site, I have decided that Shiny Hunters United will no longer be accepting new members or will be keeping up on the upkeep of the forum. I've been an admin on the site since the early days and I'm sad to announce this. I've had an awesome time, made awesome friends but now I have to say goodbye.

    It has been an amazing 5 years but it had to end sometime. Thank you to everyone who joined the forum, you guys made this place amazing. Hope you all have a wonderful life, maybe I'll see you around sometime.

    Thanks,

    Sage, a.k.a. Storm_Dragoon
