    The reason some Pokemon are blacklisted is because they only bring unhealthy discussion when brought up in threads such as the viability rankings. They become blacklisted to maintain the quality of the thread.

    Sorry, I do not know if they have asked this question before but deleted the new users submission page?

    Sometimes, i see someone with the description "I COULD BE BANNED".
    How did they get it? There's a way to remove it?

    "I COULD BE BANNED!" is a custom warning for forum users that have received 3 infraction points for rule-breaking offenses.
    If the users in question keep ignoring this last warning and still misbehave, they will receive a 4th infraction point, resulting in an imminent ban.
    Once these users have been banned, their username will be crossed through and their previous custom warning will be changed to "Banned deucer."

    More information about Smogon's Global Rules can be found here.

    I hope that this answered your question.

    Hello, it seems that I can't edit my signature at all anymore, since the option doesn't show up
    I remember changing it some time ago...can't recall exactly when but I'm fairly sure it worked
    I wondered if someone could fix this up / explain why it's locked...thank you anyway.



    edit: It works now, strange. Please ignore this message / many thanks if someone fixed it

    Hi. I'm new. :) I want to edit grammar for stuff. If someone could be so kind as to refer me to who I might speak to about this, I would appreciate it. I also posted in the Grammar and Prose 101 thread, so hopefully someone can gear me up soon.

    My friends and I come here fairly often for ideas for sets and I see errors from time to time that really flame my OCD. I have a bit of time on my hands now and I wanted to have a go at helping out in that department if possible. Many thanks in advance, and many apologies if I've posted in error.

    Your Cubone emoji thing is fucking adorable.

    Hi , I have some avatar centering issue.
    It is correctly centered on messages (like this one), on conversations and on wall messages. It is correctly centered on "main page", on thread and when I click on my name in the right corner.
    BUT when i click on the avatar itself for seeing my profile it isn't centered.
    do you guys any way to resolve this :c ?

    That's just how it works as far as I know. At least it's always been like this for me. You can even see it with my current avatar

    In game tier lists should be discussed in their respective OI threads that already exist. The rest is a bit tricky, seeing as the articles section is currently closed. Orange Islands seems like the logical place for the rest of the ingame article stuff, but I would PM an Orange Islands forum mod before making a thread about it.

    Hey, here's a question I ask out of curiosity if you don't mind,

    Are ideas for new forums or sub forums in Smogon generally accepted? And if so, who is the right person to contact about new forum ideas? Also if new forum ideas aren't accepted, then I'd like to ask why if possible.

    If there is something about this that I'm supposed to read then please do tell me, thanks!

    I'm not sure if this could be more of an OU question, but I want to make a thread on OU (although this is a more general question). However, I have seen cases of threads being locked up by mods because they weren't approved or something. On smogon, how do I get a thread idea approved?

    Also, let me know if this is more of a question for the OU SQSA thread. I just assume it's the same process for the entire forum, so that's why I am asking here.

    You just need permission from a Forum Moderator, and you can get that by PMing them on Smogon or even Discord.

    Not sure where to post this because their doesn't seem to be a place in the SM UU analyses section, but when can we expect more UU skeletons to get posted (or move on to full write-ups)? Many of them have been tagged as "done" for quite a while and I've personally been waiting to see the Infernape analysis uploaded for almost a month.

    QC teams for each respective tier may be discussing the analysis for last minute changes, as meta shifts happen a lot, especially in a tier that is having so many changes even as we speak. For future reference you may want to ask here though: http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/s-m-uu-c-c-discussion-thread.3595390/


    Full write-ups will most likely come along when the meta has mostly stabilized.
