      What do you think of this idea? https://twitter.com/rakomwolvesbane/status/765755887382388741
      It doesn't seem like it would be too difficult to implement, and I think lots of players would appreciate the chance to practice certain matchups before tournaments. I've forked the repo and I'll see if I can throw something together over the weekend, but it would help to discuss with somebody more familiar with PS.

        I don't think enough people would use it for it to take off, and it'd also be a decent amount of work, unfortunately.

        Well so the way I was picturing it was as an optional feature that would work alongside the normal ladder matchmaking. After picking a format and a team, you have the option to face only opponents whose teams match the pattern you specify. The key is that you can face an opponent who isn't using this feature and is just laddering normally, as long as their team matches the restriction you put. Of course people could exploit this to only battle favorable matchups, so a player who enters a restriction can't gain or lose ELO from that battle. Though like I said I'm not super familiar with the PS code, so maybe once I take a stab at it I'll decide it's more trouble than it's worth.

        I don't think the player who isn't using this feature would be very happy with that.

      Then all the rest of the time when people have problems, no one notices, they just sit there suffering, and when there isn't problems, every user is trolling, they havn't premoted anyone because everyone is a trash user in the room, so i think you'd be better without it.

      Yes they do help a person every one in a while, but while they do it there is still shitposting, some problems get skipped, Sometimes if someone is sucidal they just make it worse, they also just ask them to call hotlines, when they want the real peoples help, or they don't have a way to contact those such hotlines.

      Hello Zarel, I am here to pm you for a reason, that reason is such is To Delete The Happy Place, It has a great idea, and it was good for the first 4 years, but now its just a joke, a meme, people call it the lobby 2.0 for a reason, Its just so cancerious, that no one gets there problems fixed.

      Zarel, you should make a post called "Create a Pokemon Game Challenge" You have to create a Pokemon game with a central theme, location, and have gym leaders and elite four. You also have to draw or describe the map. You can only use Pokemon that are legal as well.

      Hey, don't know if this is addressed and I don't know who to contact about this, but can you please add a filter in the teambuilder on PS for priority moves? (Like how there's already physical, special, and status) Thank you.

      I was wondering what the policy on using advertisements on privately owned showdown servers was. I wanted to use ads (that users may choose to opt out of) to assist with VPS costs, is this something I would be able to look into doing?

      I was told to ask you specifically.

      Excuse me, but I was hoping that you could help me with a technical issue with the pokemon showdown servers. When i go to log in, a message that says, "This server is requesting an invalid login key. This probably means that either you are not connected to a server, or the server is set up incorrectly." shows up. I would appreciate it if you could help me figure this out.

      Just so I don't turn the 48th thread into a cathy hate fest ... people actually liked the pixel experiment? I loved it but I seem to remember a PR disaster that resulted in a near immediate switch back to percent.

      Sorry if there's an obvious problem with this, but:
      Regarding the 48ths/100s topic in PR, couldn't there be a compromise where you can choose which to see in a battle? As I understand it, there is no mechanical difference; it's rather a visual/display issue. We can't show both because that's too much information, so that's off the table. But what if there were a setting (c)
      1. Khaytra
        Khaytra
        (c) where you could mark "Use real 48ths to display HP" or "Use estimated %s to show HP" in the settings menu and when a battle is created the text is based on whatever the setting is at the time, like whether or not the battle is displayed using the optional BW sprites? That way, both sides can whichever display they're comfortable with. You said you were open to compromise for convenience, so might this be it?
