  1. you want to discuss meta-discussion?

  2. I’m just going to go ahead and cuntpaste what I said in the thread before it got deleted:

    “I’m just going to share a few thoughts on what I’m going to call “Showderp Etiquette”. Not a strict set of rules, but some guidelines to keep the thread fresh and to let everyone have fun.

    First of all, don’t spam the chat. That doesn’t mean you can’t use the usual Showderp lingo, it means ‘don’t cuntpaste the same word or phrase over and over’. It’s more likely to irritate your fellow Showderpers than the opponent. Don’t spam the lobby chat either, because you’re just going to lead the mods to us.

    In the same vein – and this should really go without saying – DON’T FUCKING MENTION /vp/ OR SHOWDERP. This isn’t just because of ‘muh sekrit club’ or ‘muh chan culture’, it’s because we’ve gotten into shit with the Showdown mods before; people have gotten banned and we don’t need it happening again. If someone asks why there are so many people in the chat, the usual cover story is that the champ is Marriland. Stick with that.

    Don’t hog the champ spot. We don’t care if you’re ‘on a roll’ or if that last match was ‘bullshit’. A good point to call for a new champ is after around fifteen battles (not including opponents who instantly d/c), with a new team every five or so.

    Champs and spectators: show some mutual respect. Champs, don’t bitch and moan about the shitty team you have to work with, Spectators, don’t give the champ hell for losing if we give him shitty Pokémon.

    When a new team is called for, try to suggest something fairly original. The ‘classic’ Showderp ‘mons like Boom Boom, Blood Ernie/Totem, Waifu, etc. should be a rare treat, so constantly having a team with more than one or two of them somewhat defeats the purpose.

    It’s been suggested that we instate a “no repeats” rule, where no Pokémon from the previous team (or from within a certain timeframe) can be on a new one, but others have said that it would be too limiting/break the flow of the thread. Personally, I haven’t made up my mind yet.”

    Oh, and another thing I thought of last night LC Guy: Maybe you could use this blog to post the sets I mentioned above that newfriends might not know about? Blood Ernie and the like.

    • I agree fully with this. Your boats are up.

    • The cover story about the champ being Marriland is a bad idea. All the mods know that’s showderp (we’re not dumb) and it’s against the rules to impersonate. I’ve tried to be nice but seriously it’d be much easier not to get you banned if you didn’t do that.

      Say you’re from eBaumsworld or 9gag or Reddit something.

  4. I believe the amount of spamming and attention we draw to showderp overall ruins the quality of the thing, there should be more focus on having fun with the battles than to just berate and annoy people.

  6. What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

  9. just don’t fucking spam or link the thread into chat

  11. The thing we need is to make sure we don’t just spam the same thing over and over.

    Like that person above said, you can use our lingo and stuff, just don’t spam the same thing over and over. It’s annoying and unfunny and will get you, and by extension most of us, banned.

  12. some 10/10 quality posts here m80s, my fucking sides

    • >most posts are the boring gorilla warfare copypasta
      >some lel reddit shitposting
      >only a few posts that are actually about the meta-discussion
      >10/10
      w0t m8

  13. Don’t be too much of a dick
    Don’t re-use the same pokemon
    Don’t blame champ for failing if you gave them a shit team

  14. H-hey guys, what if we, I dunno..
    ..got along and had fun..?
    J-just a suggestion..

  15. Don’t suggest blood mons too often; encourage new ideas (remember you can give the moveset along with the suggested pokemon).
    Use ‘ironic’ memes or whatever you want for all I care (we all know it stopped being ironic anyway), just don’t spam the chat with a useless comment in caps every 2 seconds.
    Try to be more respectful to the opponent. It’s okay to tease or distract them, but some people go as far as saying things like “kill yourself please” and while they might not be serious, you never know who you could be dealing with. Same goes for whoever is the champ.
    Don’t mention showderp or /vp/ in the lobby or the battle’s chat.

  16. Clint here, OP of the current thread and last one, I respect your vision for showderp as you invented it LC guy, but I feel like the rules we have are enough, we may experience some growing pains as showderp gets bigger, but overall I think if we don’t overract to the inevitable snafus we’ll be just fine. By the current rules I mean
    1. Pick a champ
    2. Gibe mons
    3. New champ only when current champ says so explicitly
    4. If a champ leaves without saying new champ, it’s understood that OP or an older member of showderp will say new champ

  17. For those who are saying showderp hasn’t changed, you either haven’t been around that long or you are in denial. Spam was never this obnoxious nor was it as widespread, and the fucked up Lenny face is the perfect example of it. Before, whenever it would show up, a few of us would do it in a battle or two, maybe even quad format it, but that would be it. What we wouldn’t do was spam entire pages of it in the chat that you couldn’t even see the battle log through all of it. Plus, only a few of us were either brave or foolhardy or apathetic enough to willingly call the mods ire down up themselves.

    So showderp has changed, and we need some strongly recommended guidelines if we don’t want it to become complete shit instead of mostly shit. Before we could get by without them because there was we often possessed a modicum of common sense. Now, it’s gotten so bad that literally only the new crowd is into it. Showderp didn’t used to be so bad, and I’m actually a little sad about how far it’s fallen.

  18. I’ve only been here for a month, so I’m not exactly some kind of OG Showderper. But there’s one thing I’ve noticed that seems to have changed since I started hanging out here. The frequency with which people suggest “blood gods” seems to have spiked up. It gets to a point where we may not be using OU: The Experience, but Showderp: The Team instead. Shreckle is fun, but not if he’s in every other team we create. I should mention that people seem to have picked up on this, and I haven’t seen as much of that sort of thing the last couple of days.

    Apart from that, it’s like the others have said: chat spamming isn’t exactly the pinnacle of comedy, and it’s just as likely to piss of your bros as it is the opponent.

  19. >people complaining about spam
    >people complaining about rules
    okay let’s get the suits and briefcases out folks we business now

  20. Allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment.

    For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong.

    In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality. I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of moral righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go.

    Make my words, when you get down to brass stacks it doesn’t take rocket appliances to get two birds stoned at once. It’s clear who makes the pants in this relationship, and sometimes you just have to swallow your prize and accept the facts. You might have to come to this conclusion through denial and error but I swear on my mother’s mating name that when you put the petal to the medal you will pass with flying carpets like it’s a peach of cake.
