Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

Yeah… but wouldn’t something like a 6 month-1 year cooldown be better and not anxiety-inducing to keep the changed name forever?
Personal detail changes like that put a strain on the core server / database. Since Smogon is such a big forum that holds a lot of data, limiting to one name change is the safest route to ensure no technical difficulties. This is the same reasoning given for why outright deleting an account is not possible.
 
This might not be allowed on here but I lost my Black version and can only find my Black 2, and I wish to begin my RNG egg factory again.

Is there a section on this forum where I could discuss with someone buying their version and getting it mailed or is money a no-no? I am just trying to make some shinies for a friend and myself.

Hi speaking of reactions could we get a clown react? it could be just be a :Blacephalon: that says "Clown" when you hover over it. I feel like this conveys a wide range of emotions that cannot be adequately expressed with the current set of reacts. Thanks!
I feel like haha portrays a similar range of emotions in the right context. There is most definitely less nuance in the interpretation of a clown react as there are almost no circumstances where it could be seen as positive. However, if you react haha to someone with a basic understanding of irony then you should be fine.
 
What kind of questions we are NOT allowed to ask here?
(before you answer YES I have read the forum rules,but my experience indicates that there are secret rules that we have to magically know about).
there are no secret rules, you just need to use common sense and not persist on issues that have already been answered respectfully. most of the questions you asked have been fine its your responses back saying things like "a yes or no would've been fine" is snarky and not productive. its very easy to follow the rules if you just use a bit of common sense.

By hidden rules I meant the forums as a whole (like the hidden rule that says that we can't go to dpp simple question simple answer and ask why the sample teams don't have a summary on how they work just like in bw forums,and that other hidden rule that says that we can't go to dpp sample teams and leave a comment that 2 of the sample teams are outdated and non-fuctional.both of these secret rules got me penalized and that modderator(excal) got away with it both times since the rules are awfully rigged in favor of the power abusing modderators.).

And what do you mean that my response was "snarky"?no seriously what do you mean?I didn't get to any trouble for that response,nobody told me that there was something wrong with it.

And what does "not productive" even mean?
What even is a "productive" response?

Hi, I don't know if this is the right place to put this, but I just have a question about Singles format. Which UB is the best in Singles? I believe Pheromosa and Naganadel are in Ubers but I do not know if that is a singles or doubles format, as the new changes with SwSh have confused me. I would just like to know what UB has the best tactics and the fewest checks and counters. Thanks!

General tiering for Smogon formats are 6v6 Level 100 singles, so Pokemon in Ubers have been banned in that specific format. Doubles formats are specifically labelled as such, like "Doubles Overused" and "Doubles Ubers".

Which UB is the best is largely based on the format you're talking about, since many of the Pokemon banned from OU are unviable in Ubers, while other OU-legal UBs are more useful in Ubers.

It's probably Pheromosa if you're talking about something based on OU though.
