Omanyte Referee Evaluations!

To those unfamiliar, Referee Evaluations revolve around you lot telling us if you've had any refs you think are doing a better or worse job than their grade indicates, and we can bump them up or down respectively.

Since I know the majority of you like to deliberate or otherwise take a while, these evaluations (and all after them) will be open longer than normal. There is a two week window for you to get your thoughts in, and then the LOs will discuss the grades in the secret back room before posting up new grades (hopefully) at the end of the month. Just PM myself, Dave or Jeri (though it doesn't matter which) to give us your opinions.

We would prefer that everyone, yes, everyone, give their thoughts on every ref they can think of. Failing to do so will not exactly improve your standing in the League, so if you're aspiring to a position like Gym Leader or future LO, make sure you get your thoughts in.

An important note is that referees who are deemed inactive will be removed from the Referee List and will have their grade stripped from them. I'll be calling amnesty on this one - if you currently have a Referee Grade and believe you may be at risk of removal, you can PM me asking not to be. However, in future evaluations, if you are in possession of a Referee Grade and are obviously not refereeing, I will not hesitate to remove your grade.

As a reminder, the grades are defined thusly:

A grade referee: Almost infallible in matters of what happens during a round. May referee any match, including a Grand Melee. May referee up to 15 matches in total.

B grade referee: Correct on most all matters of what happens during a round. May referee any match excepting a Grand Melee. May referee up to 12 matches in total.

C grade referee: A thorough understanding of the rules and able to state what happens with clarity. May referee any match, excepting a Grand Melee or realistic battles, but require permission for Gym matches. May referee up to 10 matches in total.

D grade referee: Solid understanding of the rules but needs experience before joining the ranks of the great. Can referee standard matches, and Exhibition matches with permission, but may not referee Gym matches, Realistic matches, or battles already in progress. May referee up to 10 matches in total.

Ungraded: May referee standard slapstick matches only, with permission from both battlers, but may not referee battles already in progress. May referee up to 10 matches in total.

---

+: Can purchase legend matches and six-packs of squad slots for 5 SP less, Ref Cap increased by three battles.

±: Can purchase six-packs of squad slots for 5 SP less.

-: No discount, Ref Cap decreased by three battles.


Please remember to suggest letter and +/- separately. The former is quality, the latter is speed (and don't use the plusminus symbol that is only there as a placeholder really).

For reference, the following are those considered actively refereeing within the League. As warning, some of you are only tenuously on here having picked up matches very recently, and your activity will end up being monitored with view to future Evaluations.

...HOW? I've never been handed a ref test, much less completed it (though not for lack of trying). Based off of that alone, I should be ungraded, as I've been acting. Seriously, if I had known this was a thing, I'd probably have a few more matches going on to judge me with!

Need more matches to judge off of? This is when you take a few levelers and crank through them in like a week!

You can have your ref grade removed if you really want to but don't expect to be served a test immediately afterward.

The point appears to have flown over your head. I'm mildly disappointed.

Wait, I thought C Grade referees did not require permission to referee Gym Matches? Is this a new rule? If I recall correctly, C Grade referees used to require permission, but no longer required permission since the previous Referee Evaluations?

It was changed with these evaluations since this was something which should've been implemented in the first place.

It has come to the attention of myself and my fellow League Officials that certain members have been trying to manipulate the evaluation recommendations of their fellow members in an attempt to gain themselves a better referee grade in these evaluations. It has to be said now that this tactic will have ultimately failed anyway, as the evaluations are far from a popularity contest - yes, we take into consideration what the members think, but we by no means make our final decision based on that.

If we do not believe someone is worthy of A grade, it wouldn't matter if we get 10 recommendations saying as such, they would not get that grade. However, going about things in this manner is something that we bluntly will not accept in any way. Those at fault in this particular instance have been dealt with appropriately, but this is meant to serve as a reminder to everyone else that this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated, irrespective of who you are or what your reputation within the League is.
