    Alright, I just moved 44 resource and discussion threads into RoA so they could still be viewed by logged off users. I left permanent redirects, so the old forums should be fine. Almost all of the threads were for ORAS, so at least we finally have a bunch of topics on Gen 6 here.

    This thread's now open for suggestions~

    Jellicent, I recommend moving http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/dpp-lc-viability-rankings.3573461/ and http://www.smogon.com/forums/thread...ead-now-discussing-farceus-viability.3505128/ into RoA with permanent redirects left in the old forums, so we can view those when logged off. There currently isn't any RoA topics for DPP LC viability rankings and DPP Ubers viability rankings.

    Add http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/dpp-nu-general-discussion.3583742/ to the DPP NU section above as it has a few teams that the NU Old Gens Hub doesn't and it's just better.

    EDIT: I forgot about http://www.smogon.com/dp/articles/nu_speed_tiers
    plz add that too

    (If this is considered advertisement, feel free to delete.)

    I have made a video guide about the Spikes Game in ADV OU. It goes over your options for spikes/spinning, the pokemons to pair with them or run against them, etc. If you ever wanna get into the tier and wanna learn the basics (and more) of one of its best playstyle, this video should be helfpul!

    according to the post, the oras stat distribution guide was written by metal sonic, but the guide itself says that it was written by scorpdestroyer. what's up with that?

    Took time but I made a video about techs you can run in ADV to help you in the spikes wars. Once again, feel free to delete if this is considered advertisement.

    I just noticed the warstory archive has no threads, were they deleted? And if so, should the link to them be removed?

    nope, they're still there, just the tags have been removed from the forum fsr, so those specific links stopped working. will update both links for now to just the forum itself, which is here: http://www.smogon.com/forums/forums/warstory-archive.57/
