Well, people seem to think that November 1 is too late to start Platinum updating, so we might as well get the ruleset down now and resolve any issues (if you think that November 1 is appropriate feel free to post that too). There's a few issues that are pretty important that I'd like to get feedback on, namely the following: 1. How many people do we allow into the updating forum? Basically, do we allow everyone to post or limit it to badgeholders? There is a precedent to limiting access in the form of the D/P analysis forum, but one could argue that this isn't so massive in that it isn't creating new analyses, but merely modifying old ones. However, it is still a very comprehensive update, and allowing everyone might get messy. 2. Do we start out with Shaymin-S as an OU or an Uber? This is a fairly straightforward question; if a very large majority of people say it should be Uber, then it will start off as being Uber. If a small majority or minority say it should be Uber, then it will start off as being OU. This is pretty important because Shaymin-S is a large factor in the metagame and affects many analyses. 3. How should thread-making be managed? Different analyses need to be updated on different levels, from those like Kingdra that need a complete overhaul to things that hardly changed, like Ditto. It's easiest to express my recommended solution in ruleset form: -Each Pokemon gets only one thread for all changes, titled only with the Pokemon's name (for example, if a thread is about Kingdra, title it "Kingdra"). This will make it easy to search for threads by alphabetical order. -The person making the thread should copy and paste the entire SCMS format of an analysis into the thread and describe what he or she changed; this will make it easier to upload the analyses, since we can simply completely overwrite the old version. -All suggested changes to an analysis, including new sets, should go into that Pokemon's thread. -The original poster of the thread is responsible for keeping the original post updated with other people's suggestions (mainly pasting in others' sets that have met public approval). If you have other concerns, please voice them now too.
