Suggestions

Can there be a way to silently punish people so it just appears to staff and the person affected without interrupting the chat?
This causes issues with transparency, and letting moderators "censor" messages they don't agree with can be problematic. Additionally, if someone did something that's worth punishing, it's good to let others know not to do that.
While it can have it's advantages (like hiding sensitive information that someone sent by mistake) it's generally not needed.

Ah ok i was mostly thinking of like if someone gets banned/blacklisted for doing something not blatantly obvious in the chat, or yeah like hiding information that the rest of the chat doesn't need to know about. Out of curiosity, would the transparency issue be resolved by only allowing room owners/upperstaff to do it, and only for severe punishments such as blacklists?

If you use the spoiler tag in reasons when punishing people, it will not show what's in the spoiler tag in chat but it will still be viewable in the modlog. Example: "/m user, bla bla spoiler: 1234" will show up as "user was muted for 7 minutes (bla bla)".

Do not post metagame, tiering, or any non-PS suggestions here.
If you want to suggest OMs there is a proper place in the OM subforum for OM submissions, you can nominate any permissible existing OMs for OMotM when the nominations open near the end of the month, and then you can vote for the one(s) you like
 
Would it be possible from private room staff to have access to roomlogs without being Global Voice ?

I'm currently Owner of a private room which has ~250 users on during the day with an active cb and eventhough we are using a bot to record the logs, the volume itself and the fact that we need to re-upload everything on hastebin each time we need are a bit annoying. I don't know if it is a tech or a policy problem but I'm just curious to know if it could by improved.

Thanks by advance and have a nice day !
 
one thing which i think is needed is either no legendary mode which is like anything goes just without legendaries or make a unranked version of anything goes cause im fed up of losing rank because somone diced to fo a full legendary team against my team with 1-0 legendaries, i feel one of or both of them are very necicry as the only way i can enjoy it unranked is i rendoms but i prefer to use my team

Not gonna happen, don't play AG if you don't want to face legendaries. There's plenty of other tiers available, we don't filter out legendaries as if they were special in their own right, viability dictates over all.

It's restricted to gvoice due to how the log system is set up atm, think once logs are done in the same fashion modlog is now it could be changed.
 
Unranked AG could be interesting but probably won’t happen since it’s an OM that we at PS aren’t in charge of, and because your ranks don’t really matter anyway unless you want to get to mid-high ladder (where those legendaries are everywhere).
 
showdown has Protective Pads having a Fling base power of 30, but i believe it should be 80. bulbapedia agrees

I'm not sure about the protective pads fling base power (tagging Marty ) but the abilities look correct to me, they both are marked as hidden in the code, and display as hidden on showdown. ex: abilities: {0: "Blaze", H: "Solar Power"}, 0 means first ability, 1 is second, H is hidden.

It would be pretty neat if there was BGM on Showdown. Like when there isn't a battle going on, it'd be pretty cool. Obviously, it can be toggled. But I think it's something small and simple that can be mightily appreciated.
 
Concerning the Smogon forums, in the profile section, there's an area to mention your real name, but not one about your PS! name. Not all Smogoners have their PS name and it'd be convenient for tournaments and such for your opponent to know your PS! name. Also in the contacts section of your profile, can Discord be added? It's definitely one of the more popular ways to connect nowadays and deserves a spot on there.

Better suited for this thread
 
i have a suggestion, i've had many times when i've had a team ready but then i click validate after its done and it tells me (suh and such) cant battle because of (reason) so why not let us know immediately when a Pokemon cant be used or a move? i'm not sure on how hard it would be to do that but yea. also another thing make it obvious what is and isnt banned in each game because ive had times where ive picked a pokemon then built my team and then nope its banned

also another idea is the filter had more staying power rather than just filtering once and not still filtering once you pick a pokemon
 
Rearranging rooms on the room list tab
I think it'd be beneficial for many people if the rooms were listed per category rather than amount of users. I was generous enough to create an example of how it also could have been.

Arranging ladder matches by ELO (rated: ××××)
Would be useful if the active battle tab was rearranged from highest ELO to lowest ELO.

Hey I'm not sure if this is already suggested but I wanna suggest the ability to move the room tabs left and right just like you moving your internet tabs left and right might be a good tool to utilize. This is so that the most frequent rooms I want to leave open but access the most I can leave them at the left hand side or right hand side of my screen.
