Meta-PokéBase Q&A

I heard it from Fizz:

Starting something like this again would be a cool idea for the general discussion forum Pokemaster has stated is being made. We'll see what happens.

So, what are the rules? This clearly won't be a Q/A system. What kind of "posts" can/can't we "present"?

For example, if I made, say, a post about my CAP's data, and I wanted some people to make drawings for it/them without stealing the info as their own (I'd give credit to each artist I choose), is that allowed?

In addition, Wouldn't down-voting be strongly not encouraged? This would be because opinions aren't provable, so unless the post is an absolute troll, it shouldn't get any down-votes.

Finally: What color will it be? The least important question. I personally think it would be either Blue, Yellow, or Purple. It could be blue for Green, Red, Blue (Fire, Water, Grass). It could be yellow if you count the grey-blue meta as blue to add in electric. It could be purple because purple is a nice color, poison types are awesome, and because purple is my favorite color (and since I don't see it enough in the world, I'd suggest anything to be purple just to be more purple than anything else). Ultimately, it is your (I assume I am talking to PM) choice, but I like to have a foresight, because I like these kinds of places and wish there were more around. As well as this new section will undoubtedly become my favorite if it isn't full of trolls :P. Anyways, thanks!

The forum has been an idea for years. Unless PM has actually started on it, we won't get it for quite some time, if we ever do get it.
Most forums I've seen have "likes" or "thumbs up" and no equivalent for down-votes.
We will get it eventually, because I will not shut up about it. :P
A lot of the questions in this thread are covered here: https://pokemondb.net/pokebase/meta/63466/
Though there’s still plenty more to discuss, and I will be posting another thread at some point to cover something that came up in discussion in the above thread.

Pretty much anything will be allowed, as long as it's Pokemon and follows our other general rules (politeness, no illegal stuff etc). There may be some specific rules around repeating topics over and over, but nothing too strict.

For example, if I made, say, a post about my CAP's data, and I wanted some people to make drawings for it...

Yeah should be fine, as long as other people actually care. In other words if you keep posting the same thing and no one else ever replies then it's just going to clog up the forum and be a waste of time.

Wouldn't down-voting be strongly not encouraged?

Almost certainly there wouldn't be downvoting. There may be a "thumbs up" like sunwun said, but as discussed in other question there probably wouldn't be points for that.

What color will it be?

Puce.

Lol seriously though I don't know. If RMT/Meta get merged into the forum then probably the same orange/reddish colour the RMT is now. Or there may be a redesign where there isn't a main colour.

PM, I have a NERF gun and will not hesitate to use it on you if you do not make the color chartreuse.
I say charcoal.
No! Maybe... Auburn...
No, no, no... Plaid! Yes.
Plaid all the way.
Ht votes a type of yellow! (I still vote purple :P)

Puce :P https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/8c/59/98/8c59981a4715ceaf4664465b4c5f44f3.png

@Hellfire Taco: NERF OR NOTHING. Get ready to defend the motherland! (or the color chartreuse, in this case)
