Am I allowed to post in my own RMT thread to update the team? And if so, does it restart the 2 week cooldown?
Yeah, you can post an updated team in your own thread and bump it instead of making a new thread (unless it's a team that has nothing to do with the first one). Doing this doesn't count for the 2 weeks cooldown, this is more to limit the number of threads posted by the same person.
 
My signature does not seem to display. Can you help me display it?
Selecting the image when changing the signature will give you an option to change its size
You can also use the corners of the image to do it directly
You could set the alignment right to test from there and if the forum's resizing doesn't quite work you can try reducing your image's size and try again

To me even just the text doesn’t display. I don’t think my signature is showing under any circumstances

Are you trying to view it on a mobile device? Signatures do not display on mobile (I think this starts from 480px and below width)

Alternatively, go to your account preferences and see if the "Show people's signatures with their messages" is checked or not
 
Hey my username is Paleofan in the game and it won’t log me in when I was and I have forgotten my password if you could tell me my password in game I would be forever grateful.
 
Hello Paleofan !
You cannot currently reset your PS! password unless you are PS! public roomauth or have a Smogon badge.
If you need your Pokémon Showdown password reset AND are a Smogon badgeholder OR PS! public room auth, you can fill out a Password Reset Form. You'll need to make a Smogon account to be able to fill out a form; that's what the email address you sign in to Smogon with is for (PS accounts for regular users don't have emails associated with them).

Would it be possible for Smogon to replace the minisprites currently used with the ones on Serebii? What I mean is when I type in : amoonguss : without the spaces, I would like to see
and not :amoonguss:. I know I'm not the only one who thinks the SWSH minisprites look better than the older minisprites, and pulling the sprites directly from Serebii is time-consuming. If this is possible already, I would really like to know. Thank you!

Why would they do that? Most Pokémon don't have them, even ones who were actually in SwSh.
They literally went out of their way to make new ones for gen 8 Pokémon to make them consistent, : urshifu : (:urshifu:) and the SwSh sprite (
) are not the same.

If it can't replace the current method of pulling ministries (ex: : spinda : ), then that's fine, but I would like the SWSH ministries to be directly integrated into Smogon some way, as they look good and it's tiresome to pull them from Serebii all the time. For example, : cinderace : would still pull up :cinderace:, while :cinderace-ss: could pull up

Why would we do that, though? You can simply, y'know, resize the image.

The official SWSH sprites are actually higher quality images and not just bigger versions, which allows for more detail. Sirfetch'd's leek in particular is a lot more vertical and striking.

Also, you can't resize the forum sprites if you are using the shortcut to insert them as text within a post, as the method being discussed. :sirfetchd:

What's the best move set for tyrantrum?
You can use the smogdex analyses to find sample sets for almost every viable Pokemon, here is the page for Tyrantrum: https://www.smogon.com/dex/ss/pokemon/tyrantrum/
If you have questions on the movesets proposed, I would advice asking in the SQSA thread of the tier in which you want to use Tyrantrum. For instance if you're playing in NU (which is the tier in which Tyrantrum is ranked), it would be here: https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/simple-questions-simple-answers.3659528/
 
2 questions first one: what do i do when im getting into a lossing streak, do i quit playing if so for how long or do i continue playing until i regain a good win streak??
2nd question: what is the best thing to do when ur mad with the game??

If it’s a small losing streak, it might be a fluke; if it’s a large losing streak, you could change up your team or reconsider your tactics and work on getting better. The best way to get better at Pokemon is practice.
what is the best thing to do when ur mad with the game??
You could take a break from PS if it’s aggravating you. You could also try a different format out and see if you enjoy that.
