Welcome to Poliwager!
Welcome to Poliwager, the most Poliwag filled site ever! We're a small, friendly, fun-loving community that centers around Pokémon!
The Poliwager Adoptables is a fun place to adopt your own Pokémon eggs and interact with other users, as well as participate in monthly events and other fun mini-game sections.
The Poliwager Forums is a small, relaxing, close-knit community forum where you can chat with other Pokémon fans, discuss the Poliwager Adoptables, and simply hang out!
Poliwager is also home to a ton of custom made wallpapers for computer, iPad, and iPhone, so feel free to check those out too! See you around!
Back in 2009, on April 10, Poliwager Forums was born. We were a small, but fruitful community. Over time, we've grown some, and shrunk some, but the theme remains the same here: We're a small, friendly, fun community based around Pokémon, but open to just chatting and hanging out.
As mentioned a few weeks back, Poliwager Forums has been a bit slow on the activity scale, and there are a few factors to that, but I want to try something that we did a few years ago to help raise activity and morale and just overall fun here!
From now until April 30th, we will be hosting a posting contest! Once you've joined, set out to post as many new topics and new posts as you can! To join, you simply need to reply to this announcement topic with the phrase "Like Poliwag, I'm in!". I will record your current post count on the topic, and at the end of the month, I'll re-evaluate how many posts you've made since you joined the contest, and the 5 top posters during the month will win a super cool Poliwager Forums Button, as shown above! If you are a winner, I will Private Message you when the winners are announced and connect with you about where I can ship the pin to.
Good luck, and let's have a good year on Poliwager Forums!
Hey guys! I know it's been a while since I updated the main site here, but don't worry. Poliwager Adoptables is still going strong, with around 100 members online a month, and many more joining every week. If you haven't already, be sure to check it out, and check out the monthly events posted here! New Pokémon are still being added to the site on a regular basis as well.
Poliwager Forums has been getting some small updates as well, like the new Quick Reply "Post" and "Preview" buttons, as well as some minor styling changes. I finally changed the logo at the top to better match the Poliwager.net and Poliwager Adoptables' logos. In addition to all that though, I'm here bringing some somewhat sad news. Poliwager Forums, unlike Poliwager Adoptables, has been declining rapidly in activity recently. Many of the members that were active on the forums have gotten busy with life, school, and jobs, including myself. I understand that life gets in the way, and many people these days are choosing to connect with Pokémon fans over things like Twitter and Discord, but I firmly believe that forums have a great way of creating deep and meaningful friendships with people, as well as it being easier to search through posts on a forum than it is on a chatroom or social media.
So, with Poliwager Forums' 8th birthday approaching next month, on April 10, I'm asking for your help. We need a small group of people passionate about this community, and what it can become again. I'm asking for you to invest some time into getting Poliwager Forums back off the ground again, and to start creating some new and awesome friendships. This forum has always had a soft spot in my heart because some of my best online friends over the years I met through here. If you're new to Poliwager Forums, please take some time to look around, and introduce yourself, and jump right in. I know things aren't active right now, but if a few of us get conversations going, things will pick up! If you are nervous about diving into a new community alone, invite a friend! Share Poliwager on Twitter or Facebook.
We've gone through a rough spot of slowness on Poliwager Forums, but it doesn't have to be that way forever. Let's get things going again! Thank you so much for taking the time for reading this long and somewhat emotional post. Stay tuned for more information coming soon on promoting Poliwager as well. I hear there might be a giveaway soon...
If you feel so inclined, please share your thoughts and help us build morale by posting in the announcement topic for this news.
Guys. Poliwager.net is now 8 years old. It's been a miraculous time getting to know people through the site, and being able to spend time working on something I truly love is amazing, so thank you guys. Thanks for the support, and let's have another great year!
Check out the other fun things happening today and the rest of this month on the November Event thread on Poliwager Forums!
