Alright, so as you know us Inside Scoopers at smogon actually have a multi million dollar company on our hands. Due to our ingenious slave labour scheme known as "C&C" and false incentives such as a "contributor badge", since 2004, almost without exception (that is, each year not including the "dark ages"; Tangerines reign as an authority figure) our average stock price has risen quite healthily each year. Now that our research for Black/White is taking up most of resources and hard earned dollars, I was thinking that allowing our shares to be purchased by the public to be a great way to generate more cash. Think about it guys, if we overprice our shares (easily done, we are people of great influence after all) under the false premise that "it's an exciting time for smogon and as a result, we are growing rapidly" the extra money could make things like an office gym with proper equipment (no more having to bench press Jimbo) or our two week Vegas trip possible. Of course there are downsides to giving the public control of our company, but let's be honest, I want a fucking holiday already! Discuss.
