    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.

    I'm new here, so what does it mean that I have insufficient privileges to post? Ho do I achieve enough "privileges"?

    It depends from the type of the post.
    One example is the suspect vote where only the players who get the requirements can post their vote.
    In the policy review, instead only expert players and well known users can reply to the post.
    Anyway if the post is well done, it says why you can't reply

    I didn't explain it well… i can post in other threads, but i can't open one. "you have insufficient privileges to post" is the message that i see in the bottom of the page

    I'm assuming you are trying to start a new thread?
    Certain (well, most of them, let's be honest) subforums require you to have a moderator's approval to post a thread. Some of them outright prevent you from posting unless you are a mod or a smod (super mod) - for example, this subforum.
    Becoming a mod requires being a good user, contributing, being homosexual, etc, and for a member of staff to notice that.

    What can I have in an RMT to make it more likely to become RMT of the week?

    Read the OP of this and it should tell you! Also vote for my friend OP.
    Ya sometimes it does take quite a while, but you shouldn't double post or annoy staff about it, they'll get to it eventually!

    I dont know if this is the place to ask but:

    Im probably being stupid but, when uploading a GIF avatar, it says no more than 100kb, but the file im trying to upload is only 57kb, is this something on my end or the site, or can i bypass using gavitar ?

    With a gif, there is another hidden requirement other than being lower than 100K, the requirement is that the gif has to be smaller than 200x200. I have tried this before and it has worked before but quality might not be as good. Although if you have a badge or have badge privileges then you can bypass all of this as you are allowed to use big files for your profile picture. Hope I answered your question!

    Why is it that when you "Preview" a post or thread, it doesn't expand to around the size that it would be in a post? i.e. this post currently looks like this, but in a thread it won't take up a full line.

    yea, i noticed that too when i was writing my RMT. it makes the text box smaller, so that it seems like it makes up 1-2 lines of text but in reality it's 3-4.
    idk why they made it like that... i would ask a super mod or someone who knows a lot about the website

    Is the "excuse our look during redesign" thing an inside joke or is the site actually gonna be re-designed?

    Not sure if this was answered, but Team Preview is a in-game mechanic, not a decision on the end of Smogon. In-Game, Team Preview shows the 6 Pokemon, whether or not they are holding an item, and whether they are shiny or not. We follow this mechanic.

    Not sure if this is the best place to ask, but where can I find a full list of abilities that have been modified in each generation?

    It'd be nice to be able to remove users from conversations on Smogon. Sometimes wrong users get added to staff convos or resign and itd be easier to have the option to remove them rather than having to make a new conversation when too many former staff pile up in one. I know the option for the user who resigns to leave the convo but itd also be nice to have the option to remove them.

    Unfortunately, this concerns a portion of Xenforo we are in no position to modify. Fortunately the upcoming version of Xenforo has several new tools for conversations, this among them, so if we update in the future you will finally be able to kick troublemakers out of your convos.

    I know this sounds minor and stupid, but can we perhaps add fainting Pokemon cries to PS? Or are simple minor suggestions not allowed?

    this would go on the pokemon showdown suggestions thread, and the pokemon already say their cry when they faint so its already there.

    Actually, they're not deeper tone cries like these:

    So when viewing a member profile, there an option that say PS Rank. It always says available soon, but its been like that for a while. Does anyone have an idea on when it will be implemented?

    the person who was going to implement it retired, so it isnt likely happening

    Can somebody find me an old article I once read on smogon? All I remember is that it was about misconceptions about playing Pokémon competitively and that it referred to Regice as a hunk of ice you'd scrape off of your car's windshield.

    Probably not the best example of how accepting of newer players Smogon is now http://www.smogon.com/smog/issue23/ladder_players
