      Just a question about the current CAP; is the movepool submission stage planned to end before or after USUM's release (that is, just a few days from now)? I don't think it's good for optics to force people to keep up with pre-release leaks in order to compose a legal submission in time.

        My concerns are more about how this information technically shouldn't be legitimately available yet and yet it is required, rather than spoilers.

        Unfortunately, per the Smogon Discord USUM updates will be ready to go live on the date of release. Those applications are global on PS and will necessarily impact what is legal on the CAP Ladder.
        We're currently having a discussion in staff over whether to have an SM tourney which would "fudge" USUM tutors into SM [like we used to do with Gen 3 tutors on original CAPs] or do USUM tourney and ladder for Playtest.

        Basically, we're a community in which competitive spoilers are inherently woven into our main battling platform. We didn't have much of a choice in the matter from a practical standpoint.

      I guess thanks for the badge nomination but to be honest I have like zero presence whatsoever on the Showdown chats, I just play randoms sometimes.

      not gonna derail that thread further since the mods probably wont appreciate it and i can only conclude that our differences in perspectives arent compatible, just letting u know that as a socialist i am very suspicious of governments and it would be a pity if u decided u hated socialism merely because u equate it with bigger government.
      1. Robert Alfons
        Robert Alfons
        i hope ur not as foolish as the masses in that regard, the mistake that socialists would want a nanny state is all too common. most serious leftists only accept a larger amount of state intervention because in a capitalist system, it is preferable to a laissez-faire approach - essentially, a government that looks after its people and prevents it from dying due to famine and disease is preferable to one that lets half the population rot away if the free market so desires

        I fundamentally don't appreciate the elitism behind the phrase "the masses" as if people who work for a living and have to take care of children are too stupid to know their own interests.

        Do you believe that "real socialism" has ever been tried, or that the Russians, Chinese, and more recently Venezuelans simply don't know what their own ideology entails?

        Corruption, shortage, and human rights violations are features of socialism, not bugs. That's why the biggest health problem among the poor in nations that embraced capitalism is obesity, not starvation. If capitalism has a problem, it's that it generates so much excess that entitlement and jealousy set in.

      Im glad that von came to your defence in the climate change thread. Opposing opinions are necessary to progress a discussion and though most of the time you can seem insane or trollish to me its the perspective thats important.
      1. Rugi

        You present your arguments in a manner far more civil than most cong posters and even if your opinions aren't appreciated the fact that you say them in the first place is important to stop cong from becoming a circlejerk.

      OM!
      You inspired my OM Submission thread post!
      During gen 5, you wrote an awesome article about if Gen 1 had all gen 2-5 moves with the gen 1 mechanics. The research and intricacy inspired me to do the same for gen 6- after last year's approval I aim for the same this year!
      I mentioned you by name, but never officially said thanks for 1 of the best articles from The Smog, before it became The Flying Press. Thank you!

      Didn't want to clutter the thread with this, but sorry for ig bad reasoning in Pyroak thread. Gets annoying seeing all the noob traps on PS! and having to explain why they're bad, so I felt like I needed to voice my opinion on that.

      Hey, so I'm confused on the consistency stage. How does it work? Is there a poll for moves it should or shouldn't get? Is there a limit as to how long discussion goes? I'm asking you as you seem to be the best veteran to go to for this sort of thing.
    18. Reviloja753

      I'm confused. What is the ranked pair thing about? I don't know what that is.

      If the Abilities given to CAPs in ASB will be overwritten after the Updates, would that make ASB even less canon on the Forums than Firebot?

        So Firebot's the only true filler forum on Smogon?

        Filler is a very generous and charitable description.
        You are a kind person.

        If filler is too kind, then it's more like the type of non-canon work from Naruto and Bleach than the beloved One Piece.

      The OP mentions the presence of 23 CAPs. Did the post intend to say 22, unless Crucibelle-Mega is somehow counted?

      The wording of your 2 UL thing confuses me a lot and I dunno what you're trying to say
      1. Deck Knight
        Deck Knight
        Basically one UL selects the Update they want of the Top 3, the other UL for that thread is chosen at random from other ULs. Both ULs for the thread must agree on a final slate.

        My sig mostly exists to send people into a blind, frothy rage. Not sure where you were trying to get funny from.

        yeah, it;s not rage-inducing either

        You're too mellow to have your rage induced. You both Heal n DeaL.
