I believe that it wasn't intentional, don't worry. Smogonites are a good bunch in general =] I just hope you're there in the final rankings, as it sounds like you've had a pretty tough time with Dc's against you.
he said in his dppthgss thread like a month ago that he was planning on making the thread towards the end of march, upon being asked by several people in the thread when he was going to make it. he wanted to wait until enough people had the game and were actually far enough in to be at the subway, which is something you would know if you'd read his thread.
even if he hadn't, i honestly cannot imagine a more unspoken certainty on smogon. these threads were entirely his idea going back to 2006, and however hard you worked on yours can be multiplied by at least 200 when talking about his efforts. he has earned the right to make them, or at least a pm from people who think otherwise.
i dont know which dt mod you asked but he could have exercised a little more discretion, would have saved you some "annoyance" (why don't you imagine how annoyed he may be at your own assessment of his activity when he's studying for the bar exam)
When I created that thread, Peterko wasn't even active or anything. The Battle Subway thread was there for a while, and while people like TRE posted, he didn't. I'm gonna drop this because I didn't do the thread to claim anything, but only because no one did it. I just find annoying that apparently the effort I put in that thread to provide the community with a place to post their records (after asking a DT mod, btw) doesn't count anything once the "undisputed king" wakes up.
im not even going to open zarator's thread or peterko's to try to shut this down at once...peterko is the undisputed king of these threads. they were his idea going back six years ago, and i cannot imagine anyone more entitled to anything at smogon than peterko to battle tower/frontier/subway threads. zarator, you could have saved yourself a ton of effort by asking peterko beforehand. i can't imagine why you didn't consider peterko before deciding to make your own thread
