The other one is far too large and intimidating, so this thread will attempt to be more user-friendly (and it doesn't have 20 pages of posts).
Hello, and welcome to the new (and possibly final) DP research thread! We need your help testing this stuff out, so don't be intimidated. Most of the things still in this thread will take about a minute to test. Even the stuff that requires a lot of testing can still be accomplished by a couple of guys testing while they wait for their Pop Tarts to finish in the toaster! A few people submitting trials of 15 or so hits at a time can really add up.
However, that doesn't mean you just post anything here. Questions about breeding chains and the like belong in the "Ask a Simple Question" thread. This thread is reserved for questions about game mechanics.
Here's a link to the old threads, in case you want to double-check something that was posted there, since I didn't copy over how they proved anything, just the findings.
