This thread will be used to organize the reservation and writing processes of OU analyses, and can also be used for general discussion and simple questions about handling OU analyses. Rules: Please don't start already started, finished, or progressing analyses. I will let you guys know in this thread if a previously reserved analysis is up for grabs. Abandoning an analysis is not recommended. You'll get a reminder about that specific analysis to be updated before someone else can take over. Please put your analysis into Skeleton format until QC have checked it over and approved it. This will make it easier for QC to look through the thread and see if you've missed anything. I will warn you about this, but if you are a repeat offender or ignore my warning, I will lock your thread. Do not plagiarize. This is a serious offense and upon discovery your thread will be locked and you will be heavily infracted When including images, if you are going to use XY sprites, please use locally hosted sprites instead of the ones at pkparaiso. Find out how by reading this thread Make sure to read the rules of writing analyses before starting. Tags: Tags are an organizational tool that can be edited into an original post to show which stage the analysis is at. Please use them so that QC can easily tell when you are ready for QC to check an analysis / which analyses they should check. Here are a list of all the available tags: [WIP] - Though WIP skeletons are not encouraged, if you must post one, use this tag so that QC will know that you are still working on it. [Skeleton] - When your skeleton is complete and ready for QC checks, use this tag and QC will be able to approve your skeleton if it is good. [Approved] - When your skeleton has been approved by QC and you are writing it up, change your tag to this. [Grammar] - Once you have completely written up your analysis, change to this tag so a Grammar NaziPatrol member can give your analysis a final check [Complete] - Use this tag once a QC member has checked your written analysis and approved it. [Available] - If you have abandoned your analysis, I will change the tag of your analysis to this one and either reassign it or put it back on the reservation list [Update] - If your analysis is out of date with the current metagame, I will change the tag of your analysis to this one and put it back on the reservation list. Current List of the OU QC: - FINCHINATOR (Your sexy and powerful leader) - MEWTWOHIDDEN - NOG - ROHAIL - TRC These are the people who go through each analysis and add suggestions to the analysis and inspect the overall quality of the analysis before it is official. You may politely argue with them if you don't agree with them, but in the end, FINCHINATOR the QC members make the executive decisions regarding the content of analyses, so make sure you listen to them. If a member of the QC team is abusing their power, let me know and I will FIRE THEM confront them about it. If you are interested in becoming a QC, I advise you pursue this interest as I am currently looking for at least one more QC member. Here is the proper procedure for becoming a QC: 1. Comment on a majority (if not all) of the analyses with any possible changes that you could see being implemented, but don't go out of your way and make unnecessary posts. 2. Contact me via Forum or Server PM after you have made a decent amount of contributions and feel like you're worthy; if you are doing exceedingly well, I may contact you prior to you confronting me. 3. If accepted, you are now a QC member, congratulations. If not, I will give you some constructive criticism (not to be taken personally, nor offensively) and we can reconsider in the future if you're still interested. With 3 QC members in the team, your skeleton needs all three QC approvals (unless you are a QC member, which means you only need 2) before you begin to write it up. QC members must make it very clear when they are approving an analysis. When the analysis has been fully written up, a QC member will check grammar and whatnot and will give you one final QC approval before it is considered complete.
