    Well guys, it's here! Other Metagame of the Month!

    Every month, one metagame is selected to have its own ladder. This metagame is playable for (obviously) one month. Near the end of the month, nominations and voting will be held for the next metagame. Nominations will be open for one week, during which time you may nominate an existing metagame (you must link to the thread or social group in question) or bring up a new metagame that hasn't been posted yet. In the next few days, voting will be held to determine which metagame will get its own ladder. Whichever metagame receives the most votes will gain a ladder! However, if a metagame receives a ladder for one month, it may not be picked for another five months (or if there are no more metagames with sufficent popularity).

    Note: Your account must be at least one week old at the time voting opens each month in order for your vote to count.

    Something I have noticed lately on the main server of PS! is that Little Cup has gained a lot of popularity among our users. This probably has something to do with the Little Cup Voice Ladder Challenge, but regardless, I think that now would be a pretty cool time to see a Little Cup UU ladder. It's definitely something I would play (since usually when I play LC, I like to play with garbage mons anyways), and I think a lot of other people could get behind it too.

    Shouldn't Smogon Doubles be on the blacklist since it already has its own ladder?

    In other news, I nominate GBU Singles. It's like 3 Pokemon OU but it's bring 6 choose 3, not bring 3 choose 3.
