This thread is dedicated to asking simple questions about SM-oriented metagames and receiving simple, concise answers in return. The kinds of questions you can ask here range from simple metagame questions to specific questions regarding sets and cores. If you have a question about the metagame and you had the goal to make a thread to ask it, it most likely belongs here instead.
When asking questions, consider the following:
- Description. The more specific you are with your question, the more specific and likely the more accurate of an answer you'll get in return.
- Proximity. Avoid asking questions about other generational metagames that do not pertain to Generation 7. Chances are you're looking for a different generational subforum, which you can find on the RoA directory.
- Courtesy. Remember to be respectful when asking questions, and avoid instigation if you are not satisfied with the answer. If you'd like elaboration, request so respectfully.
- Conciseness. This thread is the "Simple Question, Simple Answer" thread, and should be treated as such. Minimize conversations and use the respective discussion threads if necessary. With your questions, try to get to the point and avoid extraneous discussion.
- Experience. This should go without saying, but if you do not know the answer to the question you're aiming to answer, you shouldn't be answering it.
- Courtesy. There is no such thing as a stupid question, so long as it abides by the basic policies of the thread. Treat all questioners the way you want to be treated.
- Conciseness. This thread is the "Simple Question, Simple Answer" thread, and should be treated as such. Minimize conversations and use the respective discussion threads if necessary. Be sure to keep answers as straightforward and comprehensible as possible, too.
