    Hi, I'd like to write a guide to RU offense. It's really the main play style down there, stall sucks as nothing has reliable recovery...

    Hello.

    Me, sandshrewz, sirndpt are planning to write articles for NU Sun and NU Rain. If we have to, we can merge them to one article, but if we can keep them seperate it would be great.

    I'm sure the person writing the RU Stall guide will be very disappointed to see this, anyway go ahead.

    Make them separate, go ahead.

    holy shit no uu guides.

    i would like to write a bw uu guide to spikestacking, seeing as it's probably the most common playstyle in the tier atm.

    debating on doing speed tiers too but we'll see.

    hmm, I'd like to see an outline of this

    doesn't sound like much to say, will need some more convincing that this is sufficient for an individual article before allowing it instead of just one that encompasses all the entry hazards like the one zarator wrote for OU.

    look at the link harsha posted, if you want to take that over then sure, and you can work on that change whatever you like about it. Would rather see that done/updated than an entirely new thing from scratch.

    Oh yeah, sorry I missed that. I would love to be able to take over that project, I'll see if I can add some stuff to that and also provide a new example team as the current one features excadrill.

    Only one article at a time, so pick either to finish the OU sand one or UU Rain to write, but you're not doing both at the same time.

    Can I get permission to do the NU threatlist by myself? I'm going to blitz the NU stall article and I'll get the threatlist done too!

    let's see that stall article first, then the threatlist. Not both at the same time ,especially if you're gonna go solo on it.

    Me and Raseri are eager to take over the NU speed tiers and finally get them finished! I've already collected the data from Electrode to Articuno in usage (Raseri would be handling the top 50) so rest assured that they'll get finished this time.

    Since we're done collecting data for speed tiers and it only needs to be formatted, and maybe having a few sets added I was wondering if I could take over the NU Threatlist, it went inactive after it started and I would like to revive it. If I need to wait until the speed tiers are absolutely finished I'll wait though

    well we still need speed tiers for three other tiers, but you can take over the threatlist, feel free to make a new thread and use some of the entries in the previous one if you want to.
