I would also suggest extending an invite to the staff of TAONU to join(it is unlikely they will, but at least you can say you tried(it will give you leverage(against them) when you run against of them for office)). Now is the time to settle differences for the good of Smogon. I think Molk would be an excellent addition to your crew, as he has his way with Smogonites. Look at TAONU! One of the most influential social groups at Smogon! The staff of TAONU must be convinced to cease labeling you as a "Metang"(It's a pretty strong insult that will likely make you unpopular)
