Not specific to smogon so sorry if maybe this isn't the right place to ask but is there an easy way to find people to battle against in BDSP? c:
If you are talking about Smogon BDSP metagames then in the BDSP room on PS (https://play.pokemonshowdown.com/bdspmetagames) or in the BDSP discord (https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/bdsp-metagames-discord.3693812/) and of course on the BDSP ladders

If it's for ingame battles in BDSP, then I think it would be in a discord linked here: https://www.smogon.com/forums/forums/request-battles-raids-here.290/ (not sure tho, so maybe ask in the sqsa thread in the Wi-Fi section)

What with the I COULD BE BAN on smogon profile when you are permalocked ?. They could go to ours profile on ps to see if we are permalocked or not. I feel this feature is useless
First off please do not re-post things deleted by a moderator. If you feel that it should not have been deleted, contact the moderator who deleted it or a moderator for the forum you are posting in. I'll let it go with a verbal warning this time though.

Second to answer your question. PS and Smogon are intertwined sites, as a result we have some cross-site initiatives to improve the quality and commucation of both sites. One of which is our cross site punishments policy. Anyone permalocked on PS will receive a 6 month 3 point infraction on smogon. This policy exists so that users being bad on one site cannot just flee to the other site and cause problems. The cross site punishments policy only applies to severe punishments such as permalocks and lengthy forum bans.

Since it takes a lot to be permalocked in the first place, it only stands to reason that any appeal submitted by a permalocked user will need to be reviewed by the staff thoroughly before a decision is made. We don't just reverse them on a whim, we check the history of the user to better understand why the perma was issued in the first place, look for things like attempted evasion or further punishments after being locked, etc.

Also not to be callous, but if someone can keep coming back to the sim over and over to accumulate things like locks and bans until we have to permalock them, then they can handle waiting a week or two for a final decision.

This is a suggestion
Rename Permalock -------> LongLock
We won't be renaming permalocks. Permalocks are permanent punishments unless successfully appealed against, they do not expire after a certain amount of time like other punishments given on PS, therefore permalock is an apt name. Longlock would give off the impression that they would naturally expire after a "long" period of time which is not the case.
 
When The ladder started to decay. How much does it decay ? Does it will decay everydays onward ?
https://pokemonshowdown.com/pages/ladderhelp
Above 1400, we have rating decay. Every day at 9 AM GMT+0:
  • If you played over 5 games, there is no decay
  • If you played 1-5 games, you lose 1 point for every 100 points above 1500 you are
  • If you played 0 games, you lose 1 point for every 50 points above 1400 you are
This helps combat rating inflation. Ratings of less popular formats (ie. not current gen OU or random battles) decay slightly slower - you lose 2 points less per day due to rating decay in these formats.
