    No idea if I'm even asking in the right place for this, but who do I go to if I find a typo in a Smogon article?

    Right, the article is Tangrowth's Gen 7 entry: http://www.smogon.com/dex/sm/pokemon/tangrowth/

    Sleep Powder is misspelled as "Sleep Power" on six different occasions.

    Ah, thought you were referring to Flying Press articles. Anyway, I think someone already fixed what you mentioned. If you spot typos in dex entries in future, feel free to post in this thread. Thanks! :)

    Is there a way to suggest a moveset for a pokemon that doesn't have one suggested?

    From my knowledge the writer would usually use standard smogon analysis sets or sets they made themselves, you can try suggesting sets to the article thread directly but you'd need article workshop access

    As this thread says, if English isn't your first language that's alright as the GP Team can help you with that. You're also free to ask for a co-author if you need some assistance.

    I was thinking of writing the moves that should exist article, and I'd like a panel to comment on how good they think the moves are(n't). How do I get a panel?

    Moves that should exist is currently removed from the shelved list, sorry. :(

    However: For panels generally just message me and I can help you put together a panel using current and past JAPE writers who are generally used to the panel format.

    I have an idea for an article, but i dont know what I should do with it.
    Where I should post, and how I should post (a resume of the idea, or a smaller version of it?)?

    Make a thread in Article Approvals. A description of your idea or brief outline, with maybe a sample paragraph or two, should be enough. TFP staff and quality control will let you know if they need anything more from you before approving. Best of luck ^.^

    Does some topics have more priority in how fast they are aproved/declined?
    Like, if you make a post in Article Aprovals, does it gets faster/slower to receive feedback if its from a particular topic?
    Its because I make one about an metagame not very known, and its the second or third day.
    The other times I tryed making an Article, they all got feedback in less than a day. Does it is because of the article content or another reason?
    And how much time should I expect till it gets feedback? Thanks.

    It's hard to say when exactly you'll get feedback in article approvals, usually time-sensitive articles like tournament or suspect coverage pieces will be pushed through quickly. In regards to your question, yes, sometimes the content matters (see my explanation above). If there's an unusually long wait for feedback, you can always try chatting with any of the smog staff directly. But as with anything else, the smog staff all have other obligations irl and otherwise, but I can assure you they're not intentionally ignoring your article.

    I've been digging around but I can't find instructions anywhere on where to find credits of the HTML team nor how to contribute HTML and Articles. It's probably just me being bad at navigating Smogon but I need help

    Starting around the end of last year, HTML credits can be found at the bottom of the article. You can also find credits for every TFP article here. If you want to join the HTML team, post a thread here outlining your history with HTML / any other coding. There's also a quick test you'll have to take.

    For writing an article, just make a thread about your idea in Article Approvals with an outline of what you'd cover. Staff will give you feedback and might ask for a sample paragraph or two before approving. If your article is approved or you make the HTML team, you'll get access to the Media HQ subforum where articles are worked on.
