Welcome to the SV RU Reservation Index!

Here's all the information you need to know before reserving an analysis and some useful links to help you along the way:

Reservation Rules
  • You do not need to ask for permission to work on a set listed in the reservation index. Once you reserve a set, you may start working on it right away.
  • You can only reserve at most two sets at a time. Alternatively, you may reserve one Pokemon unless the analysis exceeds three sets in total.
  • However, QC members and anyone with a Ladybug or Contributor badge may reserve up to four sets or one Pokemon. Other trustworthy contributors to RU Analyses may do the same at the moderator team's discretion.
  • Moderators can deny a reservation if the author has a record of poor quality or little writing experience.
  • Moderators have the right to limit your analysis count to one at a time if they feel you aren't ready to take another.
  • Suppose your analyses are reassigned for any reason. In that case, you may only work on one analysis at any given time until you successfully complete a single analysis.
  • If the QC team deems an analysis to be of poor quality, then they have every right to reassign it.
  • Do not post threads lacking content; in a similar vein, you must post your analysis within one week of reserving, or it will be reassigned.
  • Once one of your analyses is in the GP stage, you may reserve another.
  • Only reserve what's currently on the index.

Analysis Thread Tags

When you post your thread, use the appropriate tag for each stage of the analysis. Below, you'll find an explanation for each process:

(WIP) - Work in Progress: The skeleton is incomplete and is not ready for the QC Team to evaluate. Keep in mind that the longer your analysis stays in the WIP stage, the greater the chance of it being reassigned. Do not be lazy. Additionally, it's recommended not to comment on an analysis that's still a WIP, as the writer is still making the adjustments necessary before they are ready for feedback.

(Quality Control) - Quality Control Ready: In the thread title, include [QC: 0/2]. In mini formats, the analysis is completely written out. There are no bullet points. Make sure you update the thread title with the number of QC checks you currently have. Your analysis must be properly formatted and the thread properly labeled before receiving a QC check.

(Copyediting) - Grammar-Prose Ready: In the set title, include [GP: 0/1]. The two required QC approvals have been met. The Grammar-Prose team now takes over. When you are ready for a GP check, please tag GP Team and wait for it to be GP'd. Be sure to proofread your analysis and read up on the GP standards beforehand to know what's expected. If we believe these are necessary, analyses in Copyediting may still be subject to changes from the QC team.

(Done) - Completed: After the analysis gets a GP stamp, the analysis is ready to be uploaded. Be sure to update your thread's tags and stamp number as you move along the process. Make sure to include the credits at the end of your analysis. Lastly, bump your thread once the last GP check is implemented to notify the moderators that your analysis is ready to be uploaded.
