    Welcome to "Ask The Admins"!

    Have a question you've always been burning to ask the Smogon site administration? Here's your chance! For each issue of The Smog, the Smogon admins will comb this this thread, select the very best questions, and write up answers to be published in the webzine. Your questions may cover any topic you like, but remember, not every question will be selected.

    I hope you all take this chance to get in touch with us; we want to hear from you!

    What makes Smogon different from other Pokemon websites, including those that try to have a competitive element?


    How would you like to see Smogon change and develop over the next few years (preferably specifics)?


    What do you think will happen when the multilingual Shoddy Battle 2 comes out, giving the opportunity to battle against players from every Pokemon community across the world?

    When looking to the future, what are some of the goals/envisions for the website and the community as a whole you'd like to fulfill?

    This is one I've wondered:

    What is the origin of the term "Smogon?'

    If you had to pick one favorite Pokémon type, what would it be, and why?

    What are your opinions on the new features that Shoddy Battle 2 has to offer?

    Of all the avatars currently being used on the forums, which one is your favorite, and why?

    What pokemon type would you consider yourself (and don't say Normal)?

    What's your favorite game besides Pokemon?

    Since the Smogon Administrators play such a huge part in the site, Do you manage to find time for things the typical smogon user would do, such as battling, trading, joining in on IRC and Shoddy conversations (I acknowledge that jump does this).

    I was wondering if I could make a tribute article to the Six Kings Of The OU Pokemon for shoddy battle for the webazine? I think it would be a pretty cool article to have. After all there are six pokemon stats and there are six pokemon that match each one perfectly. Will you consider this for a future project?
