    refs get uc for every battle they ref, approvers get uc for approving prize claims/reg posts/trades

    other than that, uc are few and far between, and explicitly stated.

    10 approvals gets 1 UC, reffing gets variable amounts.
    Other than that, nope. It isn't hard to be a ref, though.

    If I have a life orb and use a sheer force boosted move is the life orb recoil negated like in the game still?

    Nope, ASB Sheer Force does not prevent Life Orb recoil.

    Thanks pwnemon and TIO, I'll give reffing a shot after I get my feet wet in the ASB battling realm a bit more.

    When burned, does the BAP reduction occur before or after the 2.25x multiplier to a same-attack combo?

    Afterwards; it's the same with all BAP modifiers (STAB, Expert Belt, Helping Hand, etc.)

    After; multipliers take priority.

    If I purchase an item after a battle has started, but before the mon I wish to equip it to is sent out, am I allowed to do so? Or do I have to own the item before the match starts?

    I think you'd have to own the item before the match starts, kinda like how you can't update your mons with new moves in a battle involving them even if you haven't sent them out yet.

    For the purposes of limits on recovery moves, does Refresh count as one? Or is that unlimited in use?

    refresh/healbell/etc do not count as they are not HP recovery moves

    The only moves that count as recovery moves are those that do nothing except restore lost HP, plus Rest.

    Can a move used behind a Substitute be snatched?

    Snatch is one of the few status moves that ignore Substitute, so yes.
    For example, if Mon A has a Substitute and uses Softboiled, Mon B using Snatch will be able to take the recovery effect.

    Quick question from a newbie ref.
    Say someone makes the substitution "if Move X, then Counter" and the opponent uses a combination of "Move X + Move X." Is this attack counterable, and if so, will Counter be used?

    Yes, the substitution will activate.
    As for the move being counterable, it depends on the combo's priority. Most times the priority will be -2, so Counter will work, but if it is something like ''Focus Punch + Focus Punch'', Counter will fail.

    Yes, ThePhalanx. Unless specifically stated in the substitution, if a substitution includes the usage of a move, that substitution will still apply to any combo the move is used in.

    Simple question that I should be able to answer but I can't find it directly codified anyway.

    Does Evasive Agility evade Bide? Since the semi-invulnerable stages of Dig, Fly, etc don't.

    Based on the bolder question, I believe that it will strike a target using Evasive Agility, seeing as it has perfect accuracy.

    To add to Complications' response, Bide also hits targets using Evasive Damaging Moves & the like, so...The only way to block a Bide is through Protect/Detect/Quick Guard, I guess... :/

    What's the status on Contests and the Custom Sprite Shop?

    I saw posts regarding these in the Roleplaying Approval Thread from a while back, but I haven't seen any threads about them, so yeah, what's up with those?

    Basically, Contests died. I was too busy, and when I wasn't the competitors didn't respond.

    If a pokemon used Bide, and is frozen, does Bide:

    1) Get postponed until the pokemon thaws out?
    2) Keep taking damage during the freeze? or
    3) Just stop?
