Frequently asked questions
What's a FAQ?
This FAQ is where the moderation team will answer the most asked questions relating to our server. It was originally written by Sciz, but has been updated by Fizz with more recent info.
The latest revision of this FAQ is 11 July 2018.
Who is Sciz and where did he go?
Scizornician aka Sciz is a past administrator of our server, who headed projects such as Scizbot and was our main developer. Sciz left the site to focus on his own life. Most of his projects are now obsoleted.
Can you restart the server?
Unfortunately no. We don't own the VPS that hosts the server and allows this. Restarting the server is down to Pokemaster. If you're curious how long it has been since the last restart, try typing
Can I get a promotion?
In honesty, likely not by asking this question. For promotions, we're looking for people who lead by example, and show a continued interest in our community and server. We also promote on a needs basis.
If you're a good presence on the server, trustworthy and of good maturity, you'll work your way through the ranks with time. It is important you are a respected user among DB folk.
Where can I discuss (e.g. make suggestions for) the server?
A number of places, in fact. Feel free to leave an answer on this thread with your feedback or suggestions, or even post a new meta thread. You can also contact us through private message, or our walls.
If it's an extended discussion you want, you'll get the most visibility posting a new thread.
Why was I banned?
Can you not answer that question yourself?
You probably got banned either for being a negative presence (and declining to stop when told), or as an extension of a ban you received here on PokeBase.
Feel free to discuss your ban with the person who issued it (if you're able), but do not expect staff members to annul the decisions of other staff.
