    The topic of OG names on Smogon (and a list of what's free)

    What kind of sites? This interested me enough to post. I'm aware of it on Twitter, Instagram, games (League of Legends), Facebook, etc., but not on reasonably-sized forums, which have some distinct subcultural aspects. Smogon still has old '00s bulletin board culture attached to it, seeing as...

    editing / deleting posts in completed nocs

    autonomy argument is covered by the fact i assume if you went to a mod and asked them 'hey can you unlock this thread temporarily so i can edit out this personal detail' or asked them to do it for you they would probably comply. archiving old games in one place (like a forum) would also make it...

    Media Anime and Manga Thread MK3 - Beware Spoilers

    I don't keep up with recent anime, although I'm getting back into it because Cardcaptor Sakura's sequel started and it's, against expectations, quite good if that's your thing. I recommend it without hesitation to people familiar with previous CCS material (since the anime really shines if you...

    On the meet up threads

    Hey, if you have a suggestion for the improvement of the forums, instead of making another off-topic thread, next time please PM the Congregation moderators/leaders. Thanks!

    Serious Autism/Aspergers/ADD/ADHD/Other Mental Disorders

    This is really cool and rings very true to me! (Asperger's, brother with Asperger's, most of my irls are Aspies) A lot of kids with autism spectrum disorders do great with animals, and research has shown they can thrive and empathise better in environments like classrooms where there are...

    Exploring Other RPGs

    Hey, I love RPGs. JRPGs in particular are my favourite genre, and I'm very fond of tactical turn-based RPGs. I can't begin to mention how much I love Fire Emblem, but it's already been discussed. Here are some gems for the DS and 3DS, since the 3DS is backwards compatible: - Radiant Historia...

    help wanted

    If you're going to ask for advice, please do provide some sort of useful information in your OP to go along with it so that meaningful discussion can be had. It would also help people help you. PM me or another Cong mod if you'd like to expand upon this.

    Serious US Election Thread (read post #2014)

    Trump is absolutely a member of the establishment, despite not being a member of the congressional establishment (maybe not a member of a particular cliquey part of the Repubs, anyway), and despite being perceived as an anti-establishment option due to his cartoonish behaviour and posturing as...

    Serious US Election Thread (read post #2014)

    You don't have to put your country first and you don't have to put someone you disagree with or their values first because of an arbitrary inclination towards unanimity. What if putting your country first, incidentally, involved a complete dismantlement of its polity? Understand that a lot of...

    Other Forum Witty (yeti wins)

    get well soon I didn't submit, oops, I've had three appointments in a row. lets see if I can make it, I'm in a similar state :/ yeti's story would've been my second vote for the last prompt, interwebs can confirm. I pretty much shit something out at 1 AM really stressed over my aunt being in...

    Serious Police Brutality in the U.S.

    Stuff like this is really distressing. I do not believe it is just an issue of training at this point but an issue of culture within the police (fairly aggressive and militarised, less people-oriented, shit like 'I'd shoot in a heartbeat', other more institutional issues) that even precludes...

    Serious Autism/Aspergers/ADD/ADHD/Other Mental Disorders

    Hey there, AS may be something that will affect you in varying ways all your life, but you can learn (and be taught) coping methods and 'grow out' of some things. Others are just with you. I can say with certainty that at sixteen I was negatively affected by some traits of my AS that aren't...

    Overwatch - Brigitte used FLAIL!

    yeah, I found ana grenade's arc to be fine, but the radius to be hard to deal with factoring in perspective. her ult cost change is good imo. it's insanely easy to rack up ana ult (so it won't be too much of a problem, it'll just stop you from having someone nano boosted before anyone else has a...

    Overwatch - Brigitte used FLAIL!

    tfw you pick ana and someone goes rein or really anything above c-tier with even a non-desperation nano boost (you mayn't've seen this before, it's a mythical ana potg intro)

    Overwatch - Brigitte used FLAIL!

    Welcome! Nice Mercy avatar. :D Yeah, Mercy struggles in a lot of situations in soloq. Not exactly a Mercy meta rn either, altho she's def very viable, especially on def. For all the reasons you listed, plus pretty much everything that's strong right now can abuse her positioning like nobody's...

    Serious Autism/Aspergers/ADD/ADHD/Other Mental Disorders

    I also have AS. I was diagnosed when I was ten, had to visit a lot of famous neurologists and stuff because AS was only really gaining prominence then and my neurological comorbidities (dyspraxia and some other delays, for example) were what I was seeking help for. The social stuff was...

    > If there is a "support or tank" asking someone to switch then the fucking support or tank isn't doing their job. wut? nobody was hating on dps. you are the one being aggressive here. it's just more popular than sup or tank, and dps players are likelier to solo q, so five people are gonna...

    Overwatch - Brigitte used FLAIL!

    ...half the time the person posting this is a support or tank player. can't play both. also sometimes some picks are more important than others. if they have two tanks and an offtank and you're kicking ass as reaper, you're gonna want someone else to switch. it's competitive, sometimes you have...
