    Ooor it's just low priority. Didn't know it's already a suggestion, so I guess maybe eventually it'll happen?

    Turning off spectators opens up a significant amount of issues, especially with regards to how open tournaments "should be" (not open enough/too open). With regards to non-tournament matches, wanting to keep people out of your battle that you can already /ignore is somewhat selfish.

    If there was an easier way to "make the site go faster" we would have already done so. Insofar as I'm aware the avatar issue is being looked at, but don't quote me on that.

    The amount of restructuring and remodeling required for this would be very long and take away from many more important features (old gens/mechanical improvements). Its not that its low profile, its that its infeasible.

    EDIT: I've been made aware that this is technically feasible, wether or not its in our best interests to put time into it is a question I do not have an answer for.

    How about a rematch button at the end of a battle so I don't have to go hunting through a constantly scrolling list of names for like a minute in order to challenge the same person multiple times?

    I just came up with the best idea of all time. An admin should occasionally host tourneys on pokemonshowdown and the winner of the tournament gets inducted into the hall of fame.

    Additionally, /user is an alias and now you can click an user's name on the chat or PM to the same effect.

    Draw button will not be done afaik, cancel button should be fixed already o.0 A fix was pushed to the server (and crashed it and fixed again).

    There's no way to get back to the main page/server list once you're on a server. There should be a link to the main page in server lobbies, perhaps the logo at the top of the page can serve as one.

    It would be very interesting to introduce a "Disallow animations" preference. Probably many players and myself are surely bothered by them, making the game way too slow or freeze for the worst of us. Personally, I had to stop playing mons because of this.

    ps : showdown is capitalist

    Ye, that would be a nice function. My ladder matches keep on freezing / lagging which, in combination with the time out function, usually cause me to lose my matches because of that making it hard to ladder.

    Agreed with Mynism, lag happens way too much

    What about a 1v1 Tier like the Challenge Cup 1v1, except with the pokemon movesets used in Random Battle? The 1v1 game style is quick and fun, but I feel like more practical movesets would add to the experience.

    I agree with Mynism, I hate playing on Showdown because I always lag out or something like that.

    Would it be possible to make it so OU teams are always categorized as OU? Like, every suspect test you get OU (Suspect Test), OU (Current), and end up with just OU. Depending on when I make / made a team, it could be in any of these categories. It would be nice if the categories would count for any version of OU that pops up in suspect testing.

    It would be really cool if the server limited PMs so you can't say the same sentence twice in a row.

    I agree with Mynism, I have to wait alot due to the animations taking time to load. I have had trouble with this multiple times.

    Btw, I totally agree with him. It's the main reason I dislike playing on Showdown.

    Can I just say that if there COULD be less lag, wouldn't it be obvious that it would of been done? obviously changes are being made every day and so while PS might be less laggy over time, it is not a valid suggestion

    Is it just me or is there no way of seeing the exact HP of your own pokémon, just percentage? Can you hover over the display to see it or something I can't figure out? If not, that should probably get changed because there are a number of circumstances where it's extremely useful to see exact HP. :[
