you don't need IS access - this thread would go up on Others Metagame subforum. I just need avid doubles player that can help Nixhex and I to flesh out some ideas for this project, as well as help keeping doubles discussion afloat when the thread goes up. Nixhex and I actually made a channel #doubles for this purpose, so join us there :)
SixOneSix, I proposed in the summer to cultivate a stronger double culture at Smogon in this thread. Doubles have been refined throughout the years, and it's such a shame for the most competitive online community to largely neglect it. I'd like to increase support for the doubles format, carve Smogon's own Doubles metagame with these players, and make it part of Smogon's Official Metagames.
Now that Showdown supports the doubles format, we can finally set this plan into motion! Nixhex and I are leading this project, setting it loose on Smogon's Other Metagames sub-forums. I have also just sent a PM to Zarel to create a non-VGC ladder for this matagame-carving purpose. We invite you (among others) to co-lead this with us - you are a renowned doubles player, and your expertise in this unexplored area would be a great boon to this endeavor. If you know other double players who are interested, too, let us know! We need the manpower.
Anyways, this is simply an invitation post for you to join in the fun! If you have any questions, feel free to PM Nixhex and me. I'm looking forward to your reply :)
