    Sorry to bother you guys again, but the trainer class link is broken and when I looked at the HTML in SCMS it looked perfectly fine to me. I hope somewhere more experienced in HTML can fix it.

    (there was something else here too, but I removed it)

    Anyway, for the best article I voted for interview with NixHex. He seems like a really great guy and it was cool to learn about him. The art for OU council was of course a hit, but personally I also thought the article itself was great and very informative as well.

    This issue was really good with some great articles. I think you should have added the deoxys fight theme for the most memorable music article.

    Something that I neglected to answer in the interview was my favorite bass line. As a bassist who cares more about laying down the groove for a band than being flashy, I'm not really impressed too much by bass lines. My favorite bassist though is Dirk Lance, formerly of Incubus. After he left, the band started to shrivel up and has been wilting ever since.

    Right where the words come in, the bass just slides so smoothly into every note. It's my preferred style of playing but I'm not as good/creative as he is.

    The Fairies definitely won the rap battle. All in all, this issue was excellent.

    I would like to thank you all for a brilliant Issue, probably the best one since I started reading them (around 18 or something).

    I would also like to praise whoever made the "Most memorable music from Pokemon" for remembering to put Sky Tower and I don't wanna say goodbye there, but also slap him for not putting Temporal Tower and Great Canyon there.

    I would ALSO like to complain on the continuing of shit titles, and this time "RU ready to say goodbye?". I mean wtf was even that. bw2claydol/10 imo.

    All in all, a very good Issue. Looking forward for more (requesting GSC Lax vs RBY Tauros rap battle).

    I clearly said "bad title", not "bad article".

    Also, nice hair.
