    This thread only pertains to questions relating to The Smog. Your question seems better directed towards Smeargle's Studio in the general threads. Hope this helps.

    You post in the Article Approvals subforum. This is private and no one except Smog staff can see all threads. Afterwards, a Smog Staff member will post in the thread and notify you of it being approved/not approved. In an article proposal, you need to outline what you're going to write. Hope this helped!

    Do we need to put the actual article in the article approvals subforum or only the outline is needed?

    Yea kingler covered it here. We'll post in your thread whether it's approved or not or if it needs other information etc. It'll be useful to watch the thread you posted too so you get a notifcation when we post there. The watch thread option is at the top right of the thread :)

    I read the rap battle in the most recent issue and I loved it! However, because the idea of a rap battle is taken I am unsure if The Smog would be open to more rap content. It seems the people behind the rap battle intend to have another one for the next issue but I'd love to design my own rap or get involved with them, even as a "guest rapper" or something similar.

    Is there any way I can be involved with a rap battle for the next issue?

    While the goal is monthly, it usually takes 1-2 months, depending on various factors. A lot of work goes into The Smog (writing, art, editing, HTMLing, uploading, last minute touch-ups), and it's all done by volunteers that also have work, school, and social lives to deal with. The deadline is reasonably pushed back sometimes, but it will come out at some point; just hold tight for now~

    Cheers. This thread is really just for questions about The Smog. A better place to get team help would be in Rate My Team. Just make sure you read and follow the rules there before making a thread. Best of luck with your team ^.^

    Is there a leader for the smog like there is a leader for virtually everything else on the site (ie kokoloko for UU)

    Tangerine and Jimbo were the leaders of The Smog in the past, but I don't think there is anyone in the position right now.

    Setsuna is technically the head for The Smog. But, I can somewhat answer. A good chunk of writers are dealing with other stuff in their life atm or are working elsewhere on other parts of the site that they deem more important. They'll hopefully slowly get their stuff done though and we'll be seeing something this month!
