      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)

        (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?

      also,
      Ideally I think we’d calculate how much in-game time it takes to perform a move and subtract that from a newly implemented 1-hour battle timer on PS, in addition to the normal drain that happens when deciding which move to use. However I think that would require a ton of research, probably not feasible. Still I’m happy someone finally brought this up in PR, so TY for that!

      Hey Zarel, I wanted to thank you.

      you've lobbied in PR for important things this generation, including "Separate tiering of mega pokémon," also you've seemingly supported non-pokémon bans (bothers me, too)

      Recently, you posted "Time/turn limit on games," long overdue.

      IMO, should be limited to LESS than 1 hr, as turns in-game happen slower than on simulator (“skip turn,” connection delays).

      TY again, PS FTW! :)

      Hey Zarel I was wondering if you could reset my PS password? I wasn't signed in and for some reason my pw doesn't seem to work. It's my main account and I've signed in hundreds of times so I know the pw but it won't work. my PS account is identical to my Smogon account: trillyntruly. i've even posted reqs in the past before so there should be no question it's my account. Thx!

      I don't have PR access, so I wanted to mention that Defensive Starmie only avoids a 2HKO from STAB Foul Play with a minimum Attack IV. I don't think the value really matters otherwise for it because the damage is so minimal, so Rapid Spin should probably not count as a physical move.

      Hi, I didn't want to post again in the thread, but when I logged onto PS! I noticed I didn't have my custom avatar. I had the bw2elesa avatar the last time I was on and I've noticed that usually using it resets your avatar whenever you log back in, so it's probably my fault. Sorry, but could you try changing my avatar again? http://i.imgur.com/BjtSVv5.png

      Hello! Tech support question. I have a weird issue connecting on my Android 5.1.1 tablet. My Android 6.0 phone and Windows 10 pc connect fine, but whenever I try connecting either from chrome or from the PS app beta I get an error message saying "PS is under heavy load and cannot accommodate your connection right now". Tried restarting, disconnecting from wifi, etc. Any ideas? Username bassboink

      Just a quick question: Is there a system implemented into PS! that automatically removes user(s) accounts after a long time of innactivity, thus making new alts available? If not, could we see it in the future?
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        No, we intentionally reserve inactive accounts for contributors, moderators, famous people, and the like.

      What do the Raw and Real numbers/percentages mean? And didn't there used to be a win percentage on there as well?
