Hey dmoeenm, first of all, welcome to Smogon. There are actually a lot of people that are willing to talk to you. Maybe you're just coincidentally approaching the wrong ones?! If you want I can help you with the basics. I've been into competitive play for ages so I pretty know all the ins and outs. If you don't want me to help you but someone else, then there's Chesty, QueBien, TheHoodedGamer, or InfernapeTropius11. These people know a lot and can most definitely help you out with your questions too.i know i have already posted here but after not being on the site for a wile i wanted to say some thing ya know get some help talk t some one since i have had no one to talk to and i created this account to go on Pokemon showdown and get a grasp of the basics of smoggon and competitive battling in general but since then i forgot about the site and i haven't been able to learn much but some basic things but i don't under stand them fully and i would like to have some one who has more of an understanding someone to learn with and some one who is more advanced in there knowledge of competitive battling to maybe help me out and help me advance my skill and knowledge and go over the basic rules and terms of competitive battling in a way were i can grasp it and advance my self and grow more with the community and get better so if there is any one who can help me please don't hesitate to reply i i've been really wanting some one who can help me its been really long since i joined and nothing has happen and its only making me even more sad that i cant be with a community that i have really been wanting to be in
A tip towards you: Try to use some proper spelling and interpunction. When I saw your post it was really hard to read at first, because you basically use no capitals or interpunction whatsoever.
