    I'd like to suggest an Introduction to BW Little Cup article. With the introduction of Eviolite, there's a hugeeee difference between DPP LC and BW LC, since bulky offense is actually playable.

    ShinyAzelf said he approved the idea, and it honestly won't be that hard to finish.

    That's great and all but doesn't do much good if no one's willing to write it

    yes both of you may work on it. Post a new thread.

    you can do it, if you promise to shrink by at least 5 inches.

    Mind if I try a bit of an article which might be interesting? It's based on Attract, the ability Cute Charm, and Destiny Knot. I thought it would be something for entertainment and something fun to try out.

    This isn't really the place for entertainment article. If you want to, you can pm Seven Deadly Sins to ask about writing entertainment articles for the smog.

    Is RU established enough for a threatlist yet? I'd like to help work on that if possible.

    No, not until that tier has its own analyses and/or subforum dedicated to it.

    I'd like to ask if I could write an article about Priority attacking moves (Extremespeed, Aqua Jet and the likes) for OU and Ubers. I'd explain how each of these moves is useful, what they can check and I'll make a list of sets which use it, explaining them in decent depth. Priority moves became enoughly more common in Gen V to justify it, IMO.

    EDIT: Confirming, although I end up restricting the article to OU only

    For the first suggestion, I'd rather have someone more experienced with the tier write it. For the second, that sounds more of an article for The Smog, check this thread http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3452640 for more information.

    I would advise checking out the OP before posting anymore in this thread. There is already an article on Status.

    I think the battle style guides cover this well enough, like Ubers offense and Ubers / OU stall guides for the specific teams.

    If someone wants to, they may reserve it.

    Then can I reserve / work on it? I know I have another article on my plate, and that's your call, I guess... If I'm allowed to do so, I'd appreciate if there's someone else who's eager to do it--I'd be willing to work on it with someone else.

    Considering that there is an OU guide to priority, shouldn't there be an UU guide to priority? If this is allowed, I would love to do it.

    Chanazn reserved the threatlist a while back Amarillo, you'll probably have to talk to him.

    Finish the one you have now, and of course whoever decided to do it will need help with all the entries.

    Go for it.

    EDIT: at the above chanazn is working on another article.

    I'm willing to take over the Hail guide, since it's now available.
