Referee Evaluations: The Feedback Awakens

Welcome one and all to Referee Evaluations 2015 2016 which should've totally happened last year but didn't due to extenuating circumstances, mostly he who was previously in charge going out to pasture. But hey, they're happening now, so y'all can cease your griping (mainly me but whatever). If a lot of this ends up sounding familiar, it's because a lot of it is what Connor posted last July. Reminder: these are not the new grades, this is essentially a whole new set of evals since much has changed since July.

To those unfamiliar, Referee Evaluations are when everyone gives feedback basically telling us if you've had any refs you think are doing a better or worse job than their current grade indicates, so that we can make an accurate call and bump them up or down respectively.

Due to the overdue nature of these, there will be a one week window for you to get your thoughts in to get these on the road finally, and then the LOs will discuss the grades in the secret back room before posting up new grades (hopefully) towards the end of January. Send your PMs to me

We would prefer that 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. Every contribution helps, especially since not every member has reffed for every other member, so each individual will have unique feedback.

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 well, I have removed all refs who have either quit or not reffed any matches to completion recently, and if you were someone I removed from the previous time and are interested in being evaluated and keeping your grade, PM me as well with your current reffing grade (as soon as possible, please).

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.

Just so all are aware, Machamp-X and Mercutio have been added to the active referee list so if you've already sent in your evals, feel free to send in a grade for them as well. If you have yet to send evals in, make sure to add them to your lists if you have feedback about them!

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.
Neglected to really put anything like this in the OP, so just wanted to note this. The opposite is also true, in the fact that no members should be holding the evals over their ref's heads as if to say, "Ref for me or I'll recommend you for a bad grade." So yeah, just so y'all are aware.
