    If you mean by Player Interviews then we already are in the making of the first edition of it. The "of the week" mentions had been removed a while ago due to timing issues. So I'd avoid that.

    --- Post updated ---
    If you do have any nominations then you can post in the concerned thread in the hidden subforum!

    well no what TOL is saying isn't the same as an interview, more like an employee of the month type thing.

    Hmm? TLs should have access to the hidden sforum. I'll get you access if it isn't so.

    As for the article, how is it going to be like? Would it be like a PO Profile, or an article that showcases what the person has done, or something else?

    Basic guides on shit like EV training, egg move breeding, etc could also come in useful?

    Yeah those kinds of guides would be very helpful for people who like to battle on DS or don't like to use Sims for whatever reason.

    This sounds like it could work.
    I'm a bit more skeptical about this since stuff like Serbii exists and already has guides for all of these things.
    Player interviews are something that we are going to do (and are already working on), but this isn't exclusive to just battlers. Staff members, tournament members, or really anyone who is nominated with a decent amount of support could be selected. Nominations can be made in this thread btw.

    I saw @Finchinator and TDK's SPL 8 Power Rankings a while ago and it was gr00t. Just asking in advance, hoi Finch, would you do the next POCL rankings in here as a form of an article? It'd easier to advertise and stuff, as it'd be on the social media, the forum front page and as suck get more reach and exposure? What is your opinion?

    This time Spoovo does it. Y/N? Another point is we make this monthly article.

    Next up, what do you think of a 'Versus' article? It kinda is an argument that pits two pokemon with the same role in a tier. Say Deo-A vs Phero.

    Ehh? Why me? O.o

    Nothing against it, just curious.

    As for the VS thing, do you mean, which is better in said role, or who would win in a fite?

    You and pnerd seem to be the left and right hands when it comes to creative writing. So eh.

    The Vs. Article isn't about them fighting 1v1. More of an argument with similarities, differences, pros and cons. And who's better ultimately. A written showdown

    i'd like to be the one who handles/manages the article :X

    @Spoovo The Pirate yes - just the pre-evolutions, i.e. rowlet / poppolio / other one

    Moveset Matchup?

    I agree that Role Rumble sounds best, and the concept seems good too.

    Battle of the Best seems good if we're sticking to alliteration, but role rumble sounds decent as well. Niche Knockout is the other one I'd want other than Role Rumble.

    I like Role Rumble because it is short and simple. Battle of the Best is a longer title and is less specific. Niche Knockout could also work though.

    Would guides on offshoot games (Mystery Dungeon, Go, Ranger, etc) be a worthwhile thing for an article? I know the internet has roughly 234029384029 of each, but a personal touch never hurts?

    See you in 4 years then, hopefully you become a notable user by then! '-')/

    Spoovo, I'd say a Pokemon Go article could work. IDR if gen2 is out for it, bt if it is then try it!

    If you are greedy enough, yed, you can.

    So we have..
    Clanfag
    Sulcata (imma do soon)
    Finchinatro
    Xdevo (had a profile recently)
    and TraceofLife

    That's a pretty neat list we have. E.T. or I'll ask them if they're interested or not.

    Hmm, I'm not entirely sure on that just yet. Maybe just an introduction to it all, what works well in the early, mid and later stages of playing the game, and recommendations for what Pokemon to use as your buddy, quick ways of gaining experience, etc.

    Does anyone else here play Go?

    actual suggestion: so we either look for more people to do articles or maybe its dying because they dont get plenty of views (other than PO News) and maybe one or two comments.

    we also arent getting a lot of the new Pokemon articles out fast. maybe we can work on more than one at a time atm or at least until we get some more people?

    The main issue is we need more Article Contributors. With more people writing and checking articles, we would be able to produce more content and produce said content faster.

    You are free to work on more than one article at a time as long as the first article is at least to the Grammar phase. Productivity would also increase if we could create / review articles faster, but I don't really want to set stricter deadlines because it could discourage participation on the basis of people not having the free time to keep up.

    For advertising, articles appear in the notice on the server, and some articles appear on the forums Home page. The reason that the Home page has almost exclusively featured PO News and interviews is that the Home page can only feature three threads (or with the Gen 7 Client announcement essentially being stickied, two threads). PO News is posted there because it helps to show users and visitors to the site what is currently happening in the community, and interviews are usually featured due to their popularity (which existed before they were featured regularly). Now that the addition of SM to PO is old news, we may be able to feature additional articles on the Home page as well. I believe articles are typically linked on PO's social media too.

    One thing to do as a Social Media rep is to actually share / like / retweet every post that comes up. That increases user reach.

    As for the few comments, people seem to be either too lazy to reply or too ignorant to the fact that we actually posting in the subforums. If that point gets broken, then so does the point of getting enthused to actually writing articles, Still trying to find a way to recruit more people, this would been easier had we more active users on. As, we can't ignore the seemingly low playerbase in here.

    Bumping.

    Just in case anyone might have some additions / removals or any other QC work for the dudes doing the articles at Articles Review, you're free to put your 2 cents in here.

    Ricekirby for interview? Would fit perfectly considering how much he contributed regarding scripting stuff.
