Just replying to your change on the Pikachu Race. I was considering asking for it to be closed after I saw the bulbasaur race but it had already started: I felt it was best to leave. But I agree with you decision.
The thing with it being changed a while back was when a mod (I forget who) changed the game around entirely, editing my original post and changing it entirely (it was basically what TBR is) and I wasn't happy. I was also on a hell of a lot of medication at that point and kicked out absurdly. Just clarifying.
But I entirely agree with your choice to close it, and it's something I thought of doing myself soon after it was recreated.
Styling the whole post? It depends how you want it styled, but the command for CSS is [css-div="CSS content"]filler[/css-div] where you replace "CSS content" with the styling you're using and "filler" with the content that will be in the post. If you need help using it I'll be happy to assist when I get my wifi back :)
