    I'd like to write (or suggest if I'm not approved to write it personally) an article on BW OU Offense, since there's already an article for stall, if that's okay. I can find someone else to help me write it if necessary.

    Any word on this? I'd like to do it if Windsong has to un-reserve it.

    Would a guide on Exp. Training be needed? If so, I'd like to do one.

    I spoke with the other mods, we feel it's not necessary, thanks for offering.
    EDIT: After speaking with another mod, it was decided that tailwind shouldn't get an article, sorry.

    I really want to contribute to an article. If anyone is writing one and wants assistance for the write up, or if anyone has an idea for an article, could you PM me? I don't really know what article topics are left/desired.

    Added that, updated the first post by removing any articles that have been moved to L&O, changed the ownership of some articles, and added any that weren't there before, so it should be more reflective of what's going on here.

    Ok, correct me if I am wrong, but I searched this subforum for any LC articles other than the threatlist, and I couldn't find any. So, I suppose its up to the mods but I think a fifth gen LC article is needed - also, it would help attract more players to little cup as it is a rather underrepresented metagame. One more thing, if this is approved, then i think offense and stall should be separate articles, and maybe weather as well.

    I've started my Guide to BW OU Offense and posted what's basically a skeleton with a few written parts at this point.

    Hi, you already know this, but we're splitting up the Ubers weather article into separate articles for each weather.

    I'll do the article for sun, if I may, while Syrim will take rain unless he says otherwise.

    Reserving guide: "Adjusting to Gen 5 OU from Gen 4 OU"

    I would also really like to reserve the UU speed tier.

    Ok, normally I'm against giving people two articles since they often have trouble finishing one, but the speed tiers are simple so you can have them.

    Go for it.
