    Great issue! It's been pretty smooth and 40 articles what??? .______.

    Gosh Birkal flying out of the coop >:| haha. Props to ium for keeping it running smoothly too. Many thanks to last minute artists, elcheeso, Bummer, Ritter, ium etc for picking up the remaining articles w/o art cos Birdkal is on the naughty list haha. jumpluff you do too many HTMLs and GP lmao :p Oglemi g_g what are you doing 5 articles what. Also thanks to writers who helped fill some of the gaps too! :) And cool redesign Toast / Setsuna!

    Yea SuperJOCKE :)! Also special thanks to Oglemi for helping out with my article :) I'm glad ium took over Arteview and SS Update, especially the latter was beyond expectations imo. Good job Level 51 for taking over Trivia and having to find the answers and make the questions in a short notice! Awesome work to everyone who's played a part in this issue! ^_^ happy holidays / new year~!

    I did grow impatient when release didn't happen as early as anticipated, but all is forgiven with that new format. So fly.

    Great issue. Although I know I got at least one trivia question wrong. (Screw you Rampardos.)

    We actually finished a week ago, but due to Setsuna, Birkal, and I all having inconvenient life circumstances (and in one case, quite unfortunate), we couldn't *release* it, so I'm terribly sorry for the unexpected delay; it was definitely an exception and at least two of them could in no way be accounted for. Thank you for your kind words! I'm glad you enjoyed!

    It was a pretty great issue. Just one minor quip:

    You missed a couple of things in Smogon's greatest moments of the year. There was a thread in a forum that asked the ultimate question of us, a Poll for Science, so to speak: http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3470153

    Other hilarious threads:

    Fatecrashers's "Rejected TV Shows that I have Pitched" http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3473005

    Also of note is Bicurious George make a Cumback http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3473868

    I take your minor quip and give you a minor response :p

    Yeah there were many great threads Birkal could have picked or I could have snuck in, and at the end there were some suggestions being added that people submitted in after the editing and html were already done.

    I won't speak for Birkal but anything I added was mostly on if I could make it funny. I put in many important metagame, but only once I could say something interesting rather than "this moment happened".

    Also saying nutshell was a "highlight article" on the main page made my day :D
