How do you get a custom title or whatever you call the text below someone's name? Is it only through Kalalokki's Likeshop or is there another way?

On that note, are there any specific requirements for the Pre-Contributor Badge or is it decided by the mods on a case-by-case basis?
There's no set standard for Pre-Contributor because it can be gained as a pre-step for multiple different badges (CC, Contributor, Smog Media, Social Media, Artist, Programmer, etc.). The requirements for each of these options differ but can generally be set as "part of the way towards another badge". Some people never gains this badge and goes straight to a full badge instead, so I wouldn't recommend trying to specifically get it. Just contribute in whichever way you find interesting if you want a badge.
 
Hey guys I was just thinking about a battle I had yesterday where in Randbats my Krook with life orb did 30-something% to Alolan Persian. I know Fur Coat halves physical damage, but I thought that was only on contact moves, which EQ is not. I was neutral attack and not burned, so if fur coat doesn't half EQ damage I know it would do more. Anyone know if that is how that's supposed to work? It seems like it's programmed wrong, but I'm not sure.
Fluffy halves the damage from contact moves (including some special moves like Draining Kiss). Fur Coat halves the damage from all physical moves.

I do not know why Game Freak made two separate abilities with such similar effects and themes, but they did.

I just deleted this bc I realized my mistake and that was before I saw you responded. Thank you for pointing this out. I consciously knew the ability was fur coat on Persian but proceeded to lookup fluffy (associating the two in my head). Silly me lol

gonna suggest something that I think would help w notifications and such but, make same post and same reactions into one single notification, instead of multiple ones, like the example below:

normally it is 2 pop-ups for like, but the updated one would be like
"btboy, frickEDmt reacted to your post in the thread, with like" and if someone reacts with haha, angry or such then it would be a different pop-up, I think this just makes it cleaner for ppl with multiple notifications overall

This is a good idea as long as the red number by notifications still counts likes separately so I can keep getting my serotonin from the big number :sphearical:

Idea would be kinda similar to how discord's system goes, whenever a high number is reached, it starts going like this, some names and (x others)

Hello! I have a suggestion I'd like to make for the damage calculator. Where could I post it?
My first instict is the Suggestions forum however from what I could gather it's limited to only posts about Pokemon Showdown, not the calculator. Furthermore that forum has neither a "Click here to send a message to the mods" or a "Simple Questions Simple Answers" thread so I'm asking here. Thanks!

So what happens if you report yourself for breaking rules? If you go for example, harassing someone, then report yourself for harassment, what happens? (Assuming you don’t apologise for it, basically phrasing it like you’re a disgusted bystander).

the strong arm of the law will run its course as if someone else had reported you
