    DO NOT EDIT YOUR POSTS IN THIS THREAD. DOUBLE POST. TRIPLE POST, BUT DO *NOT* EDIT.

    Post small changes to pages on the site here. Fundamental idea: if there is something wrong with a page on the site and your fix does not change the structure of it, then post it here instead of making a new topic. (Quick addition: if your change is controversial, this is not the topic for it. Post a new topic with your ideas so others can criticize them.)

    Why are there no posts here?: When something gets fixed in this thread the post is deleted, don't be weirded out by the lack of posts!

    SCMS people: You don't need to post here. Just make the change yourself. If you fix someone else's problem, please post that you did so.

    When corrections are made by Site Staff, the post reporting the error will be deleted, and then eventually undeleted and moved to this thread to keep this thread tidy.

    Rules

    ~ It would be wonderful if you linked to the page you want to correct, that makes fixing it that much quicker. Please link to the page on the site. I'm tired of trying to find the page to edit something, only to read through the whole thing and realize you were talking about the ADV analysis or something dumb. If you just say something like "Geodude needs to have 5 more Attack EVs on its Rock Throw set" without linking to the analysis, you will be infracted. If you can't take the time to just add a link, then it's not that helpful.

    ~ If the errors you find are limited to certain parts of a page, it's a great idea to clarify in which areas your edits are located. For example, "On Kakuna's 'Ubers Support' set, x needs to be capitalized". Better yet is quoting the context so the section you're talking about is quickly and easily found.

    NOTICE #1: Badged members, do NOT just auto-correct all the suggestions. A lot of the time, the suggestion isn't grammatically correct.

    NOTICE #2: Be clear about what you have fixed and always make a post AFTER the corrected post to note this.

    NOTICE #3: I've noticed that for some reason on the credits page that strings of text will move around the page in between edits from when a person edits the page and when someone caches it. Nobody is doing this on purpose, and it irritates me that it happens, though it mostly happens at the very bottom of the page after the last </dd> tag. For a while there it was "Symphx" that was jumping down, and then a few times it was "ed seve" that jumped. IDK why or how this happens, just be aware that it does.

    Hopefully this is the right place, seems pretty cut and dry to me anyway:
    http://www.smogon.com/bw/pokemon/machamp
    On the B/W Bulk Up Set.
    Unless I've missed something, Gligar is hit neutrally by Stone Edge, it's just that its defensive bulk with eviolite means it does very little damage.
    As an alternative (I've never written anything analysis related before so I am not sure on standard wording, hopefully this works):
    Calcs from Pokemon Showdown's damage calculator for the stone edge/ice punch comparative, if needed.
    252+ Atk Machamp Stone Edge vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Gligar: 56-67 (16.76 - 20.05%) -- possible 5HKO
    252+ Atk Machamp Ice Punch vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Gligar: 168-200 (50.29 - 59.88%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

    +1 252+ Atk Machamp Stone Edge vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Gligar: 84-99 (25.14 - 29.64%) -- guaranteed 4HKO
    +1 252+ Atk Machamp Ice Punch vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Gligar: 252-300 (75.44 - 89.82%) -- guaranteed 2HKO (also, 12.5% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock)

    Support set, first paragraph, final sentence:
    "While it is weak to Fire- and Ice-type moves, Rotom-C resists common Water-type attacks, such as Politoed's Hydro Pump, and can threaten there users with STAB Leaf Storm or gain momentum with Volt Switch."

    "there" should be "their" because the water moves are possessive of the users.

    On the other hand, if "there" isn't meant to be possessive, consider moving it to a different part of the sentence, like before "can" or after "volt switch." But I am 80% sure it is a possessive there that should be their.

    I definitely fixed this before, as my version of the scms had this change, but it's not onsite?

    I resubmitted it so it should be fixed hopefully.

    I noticed a few objective errors in this analysis that I viewed from the home page. Both of these statements are direct quotes from the Trick Room Attacker segment of this analysis. I added what I believe are the appropriate corrections. Sorry, I don't know how to quote the text directly in an orange box here without a Reply button in the source. ^^; I hope this is alright!

    "Hariyama is a Pokemon that will usually be seen on more offensive versions of Trick Room teams."

    "Stone Edge allows you to hit Flying-type Pokemon such as Zapdos and Tornadus harder then than Ice Punch would, but Ice Punch gives you coverage against Dragon and Grass-Type Pokemon like Latios and Latias, as well as Landorus, (AC) which doesn't take much from Stone Edge."

    Also in Rotom-w's "Bulky Attacker set"
    'Check against' is really redundant and should be changed to 'check to'.

    the EVs section of ADV Fearow says
    nitpick but it should be either to outspeed and kill or for outspeeding and killing

    I added this plus some other changes, which I hope go through on SCMS (I'm not really familiar with the process at this point)

    That's a database error, there are a massive amount of missing moves in BW, mostly move tutors. No more database changes on current Smogon; these things will be accounted for on the new SCMS.

    From the overview of Meganium's NU analysis:

    "Unlike the many other Grass-types that Meganium faces stiff competition from, such as Torterra and Vileplume."

    Please add "Pokemon" after "from" and remove the comma, or alternatively removed the "from"

    Actually, don't do that, I've reread the sentence and it's fine. I don't know what I was thinking.

    Yay, triple post!

    Anyway, this one is a legitimate error. From NU Dragonair, last line:

    "Finding a Pokemon to handle Dragonair isn't the most difficult task, as her decent is often not good enough to withstand the strongest attackers in the tier."

    Not sure what the word "decent" was meant to be, I assume "defense".
