This is the place to ask questions that can be answered in a single post. Threads are meant for discussion, and questions like those don't provide that.

Technical Support - for help doing something that you should be able to do, like connect to the sim. Model Fixing - for graphical errors with the Gen 6 Pokemon models. Discipline Appeals - been locked or banned? Read here. If you have one of those questions, great! Just scan over this list first: Make sure it's related to the Pokemon Showdown simulator. In-game questions go in Orange Islands, while battling questions are more suited to the relevant Competitive Discussion subforum. Google is a cool resource - try searching there first. It only takes a matter of seconds, and might resolve your issue quickly without resorting to this thread. If you're new to Smogon in general, the Mentorship forum is the perfect place to find your feet. There's some good stuff on the sim page on the PS site - including a general FAQ and staff FAQ. Answering a question? Some tips: Even if it's a really basic question, it'd be awesome if you could provide a very brief explanation to prevent the need for further questions. Please quote the question you're replying to, to avoid confusion.
