My Clefable used Wish, then fainted and Dragapult didn't get its HP restored. Is this the expected behaviour of Wish?

yes, if your clefable had fainted the turn it used wish then dragapult would've gotten it (as long as it didn't faint too) but because your clefable fainted the turn it was supposed to receive the wish, the wish is just cancelled in general

Determining your GXE is basically the percentage of profit you can achieve. The more wins in a row you get on the ladder, the higher your GXE. If you lose, it will obviously go down, represents your skills as a player

Try to download in MP4 mode and then use an Online To Gif converter and then Upload it to your Avatar. Surely you are entering an incorrect URL This page is Good for Charge the Gif Gifyu

I believe transparency in gif avatars on this forum do work poorly for some reason. I've experienced it myself and it has probably something to do with the forum software itself, meaning it's unlikely that it can easily be fixed.

I have a problem with my Smogon notifications where I just won't get notifications for threads and forums that I am watching. I believe I asked this question once and was told that you don't get notified for new posts if you ignored a notification for a previous post in the same thread. However, I still get some notifications for threads/forums I haven't clicked on in years, while some threads that I check every time, like the OU Discussion thread, just straight up stop appearing no matter how active I am in the thread. Is this some sort of glitch or is there some secret to it?

If notifications are wonky, then it might actually be XenForo's fault itself. Tried googling for some general XenForo queries about watched threads/forums notifications, but didn't find anything in particular. Could try that route yourself and see if you get any luck.

Sometimes this is caused by post deletions ftr, since alerts are tied to specific posts; if someone replies to a watched thread, someone else posts after, and the initial post is deleted, then the "new post" notification disappears into the void alongside it. Afaik there's not really a good fix to this within xf's current alert code unfort, only thing you could do is check https://www.smogon.com/forums/watched/threads occasionally.
