The Marriland Forums are a large group of forums popular in the fandom.



Server issues

The Marriland Forums have suffered from server problems ever since Pokémon Diamond and Pearl were released in April 2007. This resulted in the server going down for hours at a time, as it couldn't handle the flood of new users.

Due to Marriland's dire situation, in July 2008 Marriland began updating the forums from phpBB2 to phpBB3. After many hours of updates and downtime, the Marriland Forums finished the transition on November 12th. Problems have been decreasing since the update.


On December 4, 2012, Pokemon-Marriland joined the gaming network Curse, giving it access to Curses' staff, a new look, and its own forums. The old site still excists here.



The Marriland Forums have a helpful service called "Adopt-A-Newbie!", where newcomers (called "newbies") can get a helpful start along with some knowledge about the forums and what to do. The service is located in the “General Forums” section inside the “Introduce Yourself!” forum and involves a mentor system to assist newbies who come and ask for help. Newbies pick their mentor by looking at each mentor's application to see how many newbies he can mentor and what guidance the mentor provides. Mentors can only mentor newbies who are working on their Green and Yellow rank. After one month the newbie turns into a “Graduated Newbie” and is added to the Graduated Newbie list.

The “Adopt-A-Newbie!” service has mentored over 140 Marriland Forums newcomers so far.

Note: “Adopt-A-Newbie!” is currently accepting applications to become a mentor only after fulfillment of certain criteria as of March 23, 2012.


The idea for “Adopt-A-Newbie!” was suggested by Marriland Moderator: Pupitar247 on Sep 29, 2007. The idea started running on the forums on Jun 05, 2008.

“Adopt-A-Newbie!” was created by Marriland Administrator: Azulkitten.
