    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.

    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.

    unless Serebii, Pokemondb, and Bulbapedia are all wrong, Gliscor is not a Flying / Ground type

    (tdp edit: ppl submitting changes, very glad to have you help out here pls do make sure to use your own judgment and check double whether everything's correct, too)

    for what it's worth since there wasn't really a proper ADV NU metagame way back when (at least not one we were writing analyses for), pretty much all the ADV NU mons were given an "OU" or non-tier-specific analysis att. many pre-DPP analyses have some quirks like this, and other than full revamps it's better to just leave them be.

    Can you guys update this page? It's supposed to be a PID calculator, but it shows the 404 error whenever I try to visit it.

    Almost every RU analysis mentions Nidoqueen.

    First of all, Nidoqueen was banned by usage, so it may be back in RU based on June stats. If it is forever lost into the depths of UU, then people will begin to take out the remaining mentions. Keep in mind mentions are usually removed in terms of the most viable down.
