Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

So I'm probably going to sound stupid, but how do you post sprites for Pokemon like when you are posting a team and how do you make a link that opens when you click on it like the SQSA threads (Open).
 
If I signed up for a tournament, and I don't appear in round 1, does that mean I didn't make the first 62.5% or whatever, or did I do something wrong?

You probably weren't randomly chosen from the 62.5%. If the tour has a list of subs, check for yourself there, and if you still can't find your name contact the host.
 
How do some users have a gif as their profile picture, Everytime I try it says I need it to be under 100kb but I see other users with good quality gifs that aren't 100kb as their profile picture?

Badge holders are allowed to have a gif over 100kb as their profile pic. To know more about badges and how to earn them, click here.

How do I put a message under my name like Finchinator with his "It's Fink dumbass"? I've seen non-badgeholders do it.
Non badgeholders cant do that themselves, you need an smod to give it to you. Basically you cant have it unless you have a badge or good connections
 
Is Antar still planning on updating the tiers more often than every 3 months? A bunch of new mega stones got released since the last update, and some of the NU players might not be happy having to wait 9 months to get the mega stones.
If a pokemon receives a very small amount of usage (around 1% iirc) it can "quickdrop" to a lower tier in between tiering months. This will probably happen to some of the new megas.

Is there a thread for trading?
Yes, there is an entire section of the forum dedicated to trading here: http://www.smogon.com/forums/forums/wi-fi.53/
For Simple trades like if you're just looking for a Treecko in a Nest Ball or something along those lines, the Simple Questions thread in that section would be your place to go. Link: http://www.smogon.com/forums/thread...item-requests-etc-go-here-no-hacking.3587164/
If you have a bunch of Pokemon to show off, though. You can make your own thread in the Wi-Fi section. But make sure that you've read and understood the rules of the Wi-Fi section (and Smogon as a whole) first, though.
