    Not certain if this is where this goes. Mods, move it to the right place if it isn't, please.

    I recently took a look at the damage calculator on-site, and was disappointed to find that it only is good until DPP. Would it be possible to update it with the new Pokemon, moves, items, etc?

    Also, Honko's a pro. He's already done a ton of work on this ^.^

    Can we just update the main page to link to Honko's calculator?

    I second this, Honko's calc is really the best one.

    Okay, what is this?
    "opens source code"
    O.O nopenopenopenopenope. That's a lot more complicated than I thought it would be.

    I'll third Jelli's suggestion. The Honkalculator works pretty well.

    An admin with root access would have to update the calculator link on the homepage. PM either mingot or DougJustDoug if you'd like to see it up there. They may not deem it the number one priority since there are links to Honko's calculator around the forum, but it's worth a PM.
