The posts that address Bulba-specific issues.
Read all about it here. I'm excited to host it. If it works, I think it'll be a very different type of tournament that'll encourage community-building and competition.
Might do another open question thread tomorrow.

Some of you may remember the Diplomacy Games that Evil Figment (formerly DamainSilverblade) used to run around here. Well, we're working on a very cool modern variant of the diplomacy game now.

Earlier in the summer, I was concerned about the prospect of Bulbapedia facing an 'edit crisis:' that is, people would continue making new articles, but old articles would never be improved. I'm happy to say that this does not seem to be the case, with edits recovering to their pre-re-open levels. This seems to be part of a larger trend on Bulbapedia, where little projects which need attention are generally being attended to. As a result, Bulbapedia is continuously looking better and providing
