    Hello again! After a little over a month, issue #28 finally makes its entrance. Packed with over 30 articles, this installment of the Smog focuses on balance across most categories, which I'm sure is something that will appeal to our readers. In comparison, issue #27's vast majority of articles was based on the Metagame section, and this time around we wanted to make sure there was more content to choose from for just about anyone! Once again, I want to thank our excellent team and Staff for putting this issue together and making it happen -- you're a really cool team to work with!

    We'd love to hear from you, and we really do hope you enjoy what we've done! In a moment this thread will display a feedback poll so you can let us know which articles were your favorites. And if you're a fan of the Smog, please do consider getting involved -- many of our contributors are readers who wanted to be a part of something they loved. You can always contact any of the Smog's dedicated mentors if you're looking for advice or need some questions answered!

    Keep up the good work! Funny job on X & Y leaks, I remember how many school rumors we had at gen 1 and 2. To move aside that truck to reveal Mew and Pikablu (later Marill) were just a few of them!

    As far as I know, most of the Smog contributors don't know either. I sure don't know if it's something specific or just general busyness on Setsuna's part.
