    No mention of Growth being a Nasty Plot and a Swords Dance combined under Sun?

    would just like to reiterate that between now and next issue i'll be accepting blurbs for the next smogon tabloids and the best ones will be added and credited in the article (i'll be sticking to longer tabloids pieces). so for simplicity if you have a twitter account, follow me:

    http://twitter.com/SmogonTabloids

    if you don't i guess you could just pm them to me on the forums but that could get annoying on my end so it'd probably be best if you just signed up for a twitter account it's not the most painful thing in the world and you can follow 50 cent if you do which makes it a win/win.

    The LC weather article was lacking in content. While psyduck does counter weather, it's not even close to the only one. Munchy beats special rain/sun sweepers and destroys hail, agility chinchou can set up on something and sweep back against rain teams (or sun teams with ice beam + water stab!). Basically, it would've been nice to see stuff about weather abusers' sets (sub sd gligar anyone?) and other stuff like that. Trick Room should've gotten a mention. The article just lacked information basically, and I'm really disappointed that the one LC article in the smog was that bad.

    Edit: The Smogon Tabloids got the part about lc players right at least.

    Nice issue (considering I found my name in it...yesss), but I kinda have a problem with one thing. The awards for 2010 were nice, but why include worst post? This will definately cause people to flat out troll and be retarded. Trou De Cul will fill up with entries for this, and it could get out of hand.

    I was really surprised to see Team STINKY MUSIC in there, how far it's come! Great issue, and thanks to all of the writers and artists that helped make this issue awesome!

    Good luck jumpluff, and I hope you come back to us someday!

    Ok, I've only read trivia, note from the editor AND the TCG Base/Jungle/Fossil metagem review.
    Thanks a lot for writing it. I still have many of those cards at home and it's always nice to remember the times when I used them. I'll read the rest now

    To anyone who has complained, or is thinking of complaining, remember that The Smog is run by volunteers - if you feel that <article> is lacking in content, or could elaborate more on certain issues then why not take it up on yourself to write a better article for next issue? Complaining is both ungrateful and hypocritical if you yourself do not volunteer to contribute.

    This is also a call to other people who are thinking of contributing - if you have an idea, then don't be shy!

    Whoops, totally missed the thunder thing. I didn't write the analysis for the little spider, so I just glanced over for grammar/spelling/overall quality.
