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 Devin 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.

The Marriland Forums have a helpful service called "Adopt-A-Newbie!", where newcomers to the forums can go to get a helpful start and some knowledge about the forums and what to do.

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 Senior Moderator: Azulkitten

The service consists of mentors that assist the newbies that come and ask for help.

Newbies pick their Mentors by looking at each of the Mentors application by seeing how much 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 a month the Newbie turns into a “Graduated Newbie” and is put on the Graduated Newbie list.

The “Adopt-A-Newbie!” service has mentored about 40 Newbies so far.
