So I'll be back and with much more time on my hands. I had really tough classes my freshman year in University, so things will be much easier from here on out. I also wanted to say that I'm glad to hear your dad is doing better.
In any event, I had a few proposals for the site that I think will be of interest to you. Many if not all of these have already been suggested to you several times, so instead I have ways to quickly get them off the ground and with little management.
1.) Get rid of the Ban Report Page
I don't think this needs any explanation as to why it's a good idea. I figured it could be done through the same material as the approval posts for newer users, that way reports are only visible to moderators, and they can interrogate whoever they need to and deal with the situation instead of a potentially innocent person being put on the site and letting everyone comment and starting more fights. I know I suggested privatizing it before, but I think this would be a good way to do it as to avoid more work.
2.) Use the DB YouTube page for walkthrough Material
This would only include in-game audio and text if needed. It would help to lower our dependency on other sites for information, would help to provide information on things that aren't easy to explain through text (that strength puzzle in Sapphire comes to mind), and it would help to prevent using other peoples' YouTube videos and end up getting dead links, not to mention the extra site attention can't hurt. TM Locations, Rare candy locations, other rare items, sidequests, and legendary guides are all also very popular search materials to work with.
3) Create a content page to submit coding on the DB.
This would definitely be good for those of us with programming knowledge that could either help knock some of the projects of your list, or to just propose and later create other tools for the site. If I remember correctly, you have a degree in this field and could easily run circles around most of us, but a few of us can still run some basic stuff for you, any of which you still have the ability to edit too and there are plenty of sites that help with sharing source code, so a venue isn't a difficult problem to get past. I've written pokemon specific stuff before, and I'm sure there are others with a bit of programming experience that may be willing to help.
4) Posting a listing of things you'd want done for the site and feel okay sharing
It can be as simple as a question here, but anything you'd feel comfortable putting there that you'd want to do on the site at some time in the future would be a cool idea, that way users can get an idea of where the site is going, and implement strategies to make it happen, if applicable. I'm sure there is one, but publicizing it in an easy to see location would help.
5.) Give the moderators frostys from Wendy's
I've wanted a Wendy's frosty for a while now. Actually, we can just all go for some frosty chocolate milkshakes.
