Recent Additions & Changes
If you noticed, there have been a couple of additions and changes here and there in the Contest section. The first of all was the introduction of Double Contests, which will most probably remain as a permanent part of the Contest section.
Additionally, there are also increments for the payouts. Normal Rank contests still pay the same, but Super Rank will pay more than Normal Rank, and so on and so forth. You can view the entire list in the All About Contests thread. The rank requirements have also been changed (or returned to how it was in the past). You now need to have at least won 3 of the previous rank ribbon in that corresponding category in order to participate in the next higher rank.
There is also a full list of clauses and rules that you can adjust in contests. Note that the default rule for Normal and Super Rank contests are played with no attributes. If you want to play with them, all players must agree to it. However, for Super and Master Rank contests, attributes is mandatory.
Lastly, the threads are reorganized and information are more detailed than before. The Contest Moves List (R/S/E Mode) have also went through a complete check and descriptions are now constant (similar moves effect will have the exact description). And of course, Generation Five moves are also added in, with help from JokesterJesse and others. This is only for R/S/E though, the ones for D/P/P will be added in soon. Same goes for Combo Moves.
On a final last note, the Judge Quiz is being revised atm, so it should be ready by tomorrow again. You now have to pass the Judge Quiz first, then take a Judge Test, before you can become an official Judge.
Any further updates will be posted here.
