    Ok, I'm unsure as to where to post this, but here goes.
    The "About" page, is very outdated - it says there are over 30000 members - there are currently 117,807 members. Also in the tournaments section, there is no slash for BW. Anyway this might be a good opportunity for an experienced member to re-write the "About" section if they deemed it nessecary. It seems ok to me but judging by the number of members at the time it was written, it must be very old and there is probably stuff that could be added/changed.

    good call, this does appear to need updating. For example, this says the last tournament had 256 members - an impressive number, but the 512 we had in 2011 strikes me as moreso.

    It was last updated July 26, 2010, so yes, you're right, it does need a bit of an update. Thanks for the catch!

    Yes, the fact that there are at least 512 members who can play all five generations of pokemon competitively is quite impressive. New members like me viewing the about page would learn the quality of the players on site from reading that single sentence.
