    This is a simple one concerning the strategy dex pages for Pokemon, and articles: Add a little fine-print credit to the author.

    For example, you open up the Claydol analysis (whoo!), select the RU tab, and it will say "by November Blue."

    Most people aren't aware of the C&C process, and the strategy dex seems faceless to most passers-by and general forum-goers. This would be a little nod to the author of the analysis, both for recognition of their efforts, and just to let people know that these analyses are actually written by other people just like them.

    contributors are recognized by the contributor and pre-contributor badges as well as the credits page...the problem with your suggestion is that articles and analysis (but mostly the latter) are molded and revamped by so many people that itd be virtually impossible to constantly credit them all
