Important Resource Threads
Rules and Notes:
  • You may reserve one analysis at a time if you are not a badgeholder, two if you have a badge. If you want to reserve more, run it by me first, since we want to be sure that everyone who wants to gets a chance to try their hand at writing analyses.
  • Don't edit your posts in this thread. Post again if you have to make an update, even if you have to double or triple post.
  • Post here to reserve an analysis, and if the Pokemon in question requires approval, I will like your post as affirmation that you have the go-ahead to write the skeleton.
  • Analyses showing minimal activity can and will be re-assigned.
Deadlines:
  • You have 1 week to post a completed skeleton after you reserve it.
    • NOTE: After posting the reservation, please post the WIP thread immediately, before writing up the skeleton. This is so we can keep the analysis index up to date. It can include a lame joke, funny/cute picture of the Pokemon, or whatever, as long as the thread gets posted!
  • You have 3 days to implement any QC member's check after they post it.
  • You have up to 2 weeks to write up any analysis starting when you implement the second QC check. After a week without any progress, you will be prodded.
    • NOTE: While we are working strictly in skeletons, this step is unnecessary.
  • You have 3 days to implement GP checks.
  • If you have any special reasons why you cannot make a certain deadline, just state so on the thread of the analysis in question and you should be fine.
READ THIS: I want to make something about the process much more clear:

If you're reserving an analysis that requires approval, please wait for me (talkingtree) or MajorBowman to like your reservation post before starting out on working on the analysis. As much as possible, we don't want you to waste your time on working an analysis when we're not really going to approve of your reservation. By doing it this way, the process of approving reservations is much more consistent and avoids any BS and miscommunication. If you want to know why I'm not approving, feel free to ask me privately :)!

If you're reserving an analysis that has regular priority, feel free to start working on it as soon as you reserve it! You don't have to wait on any of us :)!

READ THIS TOO: Anyone who fails to meet deadlines allows their work to be picked up by anyone else who wants the analysis. Punishments will typically be warnings or temporarily not being allowed to write anything, but if anybody does anything that pisses talkingtree or MajorBowman off (for example, reserving an analysis then dropping it for bullshit reasons), you will be infracted.

Checks and Counters Tags:
  • Keep in mind the existence of specific checks and counters tags we use for Doubles analyses (scroll down to find them). We are aware that many Pokemon can belong in multiple tags, but it doesn't really matter what tag it belongs in as long as it's listed somewhere. If you feel a check or counter needs a different tag, feel free to use it, but try to your best ability to put all of a Pokemon's checks into the listed tags.
Pokemon Sun and Moon are finally here! Since this is the beginning of the generation, we’ll be writing all analyses from scratch and working to give each Pokemon on the Viability Rankings a skeleton to start, so that we can get something on-site ASAP. As that list is rather long, the Pokemon still awaiting analyses will be sorted by priority, with the high priority analyses requiring approval from me in the form of a like on your reservation. The more relevant a Pokemon is to the metagame, the stricter we will be; both when handing out approval and during the QC process. Once the metagame has settled a bit, we’ll revert back to full analyses and replace the skeletons that have been uploaded. If you notice that an analysis already on-site seems incorrect, or feel that a certain Pokemon not listed below needs an analysis, bring it up for discussion in the DOU Analysis Discussion thread!

High Priority: (REQUIRES approval from talkingtree or MajorBowman)
None at the moment!
Regular Priority:
None at the moment!
Low Priority: (Please take a High/Regular Priority Pokemon if you are allowed/feel comfortable doing so, as we want those on-site ASAP.)
None at the moment!
Reserved:
None at the moment!
In Progress:

I'd prefer if you take a regular priority Pokemon, especially as this is your first analysis.

I want to make something about the process much more clear:

If you're reserving an analysis that requires the approval of either myself or talkingtree, please wait for one of us to like your reservation post before starting out on working on the analysis. As much as possible, we don't want you to waste your time on working an analysis when we're not really going to approve of your reservation. By doing it this way, the process of approving reservations is much more consistent and avoids any BS and miscommunication. If you want to know why we're not approving, feel free to ask either (or both, if that floats your boat) of us privately :)!

If you're reserving an analysis that has regular priority, feel free to start working on it as soon as you reserve it! You don't have to wait on any of us :)!
