I have no idea if this is remotely feasible with what XenForo provides, but I think it would be real nice if we could add at least some form of a generic "Other" option for the publicly displayed gender selection in account details.

Currently, we have male, female, or nothing at all and I'd think with the growing LGBTQ+ community here & general increased awareness and acceptance that this change could be appreciated by plenty of nonbinary folx who'd rather display as something rather than nothing at all.

I added Other as an option. If there's demand for more specific options then I can add them. Unfortunately I am unable to do something like "Other" + textbox for users to add their own. Hope this helps!
 
Why did everyone's reaction scores (including mine) suddenly skyrocket?
My guess is that all reactions count for score now, and not just Like/Laugh/Love as it was before. I just wowed you and your score went from 836 to 837.

My personal sum adds to 720.
EDIT: 720 is the sum of all the reactions, as well as my current reaction score.

What is the website for deciding the winner of Ranked Pairs Format voting?
If this is referring to CAP Polls, we don't use a website and instead use custom made tools that handle all of our polling. I’ve seen you post in cap polls a few times so that’s why I assume the question is about those.

Due to the risk of people using them to manipulate polls and such, we don't really share the full details on how it works or the tools we use, unfortunately! If other parts of the site use Ranked Pairs for project threads I’m not sure what website they use I’m afraid

Hey, suggestion there !
Couldn't you just add a tier between OU and UU? There are like 20 pokemons in the middle tier and most of them arent fit for Overused nor legal in UU, so why not just create a intermediate tier?

These mons were allowed in UU at one point, and were banned from UU because they were deemed too powerful. When the DLC releases in a month, many of them might be retested in UU to drop. However, because the power level with these Pokemon in it make the tier ridiculous (they were banned for a reason), there is no reason to add such a tier.

Many of the Pokemon in UUBL are also useable in OU in some form (Weavile, Venusaur on sun, Veil for Ninetails-A, Obstagoon, Crawdaunt, Diggersby as breakers, Primarina), even if they are not a top metagame choice.

Except UUBL isn't a tier, just a banlist filled with offensive threats. Since making a tier of such a banlist would require it to use other Pokémon from tiers below it to fill it out, as it can't use ones from OU, you essentially end up with a UU tier without anything banned. And since those in UUBL were banned for a reason, it would just end up terribly unbalanced. Would you need to create another banlist to balance that new tier out? It doesn't end well.
 
Is there any way to see past signatures / signature history? There's a few replays that I used to have in my signature that I do not seem to have kept elsewhere, so I was wondering if there's any way I could access them.

You can also try searching for the replays on the replay site

Good day, everyone!

I have never encountered a problem with my home internet connectivity until mid-April where my internet connection when using Pokemon Showdown has been acting oddly despite it acting normally when using other programs. It's definitely running, but the issue will be shown via this photo (I may be using an iPad right now at this point):



There are times that I got lucky that I use my home internet and then run Pokemon Showdown normally that I actually got logged in, but the issue is I eventually cannot switch nicknames. If I get disconnected, or get refreshed by accident, I will end up in that photo above, unless I'm going to use my mobile data (which I have done over the past few months). Apart from resetting the modem (which didn't work), are there other solutions to have this running normally?
 
hello :) I have a little problem to see my points in gen 7 OU, this message appears "Ladder (probably) updated, but score could not be retrieved (Response not received)".

I hope it's not what I'm thinking :/
