Hey there Horixon! Like I mentioned on discord, I'm going to be your tutor for Starting ASB. Since you've already registered, we can hop right into your first battle, where we'll go over the fundamentals of ASB. Send me 2 of your Pokemon's profiles and we'll get started!

Okay, reviewing self-reffing renewal applications by users Toon and Yoshiblaze. Expect a result within 2 hours of this post.

Okay sorry Oora, I was away for too long (between PvZ:H releasing a dinosaur-themed expansion pack, PoGo releasing the Legendary Dogs, and getting up to level 8 in Ingress, plus finishing AC:Syndicate and poking at my brother's D3- oh wow I'm really juggling a lot of games here :| )

* * * * * * *​

User Toon has created, in the past 3 months:
- 8 Gym reffing threads, 2 of which completed (although 1 is caused by a forfeit) while the remaining 6 is still being reffed by him,
- 4 new RP threads (1 Hall, 2 ASS, and a brand new Raid)
- 21 Completed Tower battles, and still have 8 labeled "Ongoing", although the first of the 8 I clicked on was suspended at July.
- This does not account for subreffings picked up - at last glance, the list looks to be hundreds long.

In terms of flavour, the best Toon came up with was the thread titles. Example:
- Discussion in 'ASB' started by Toon, A moment ago
- "my whitelist expired but those who are supposed to renew it are not here so fuck it" -PokeZeep 2017
- Free shipping over $35 jet.com SHOP NOW

Which, while slightly lacking, was a decent enough source of humour.
Verdict: Passed. Licence renewed for another 6 months, with an advice to listen to Blackpink instead of Kidz Bop. And stop pulling out the granny gun.

* * * * * * *​

User Yoshiblaze has created, in the past 3 months:
- 19 Tower battle threads, 15 of which Completed (actually all 19, you forgot to change the prefix on the other 4), although the majority of which are short battles.

In terms of reffing flavour, these threads seem to follow Toon's example in naming the titles.
Verdict: Tentatively passed. Licence renewed for 2 months, and future commitment to reffing longer battles are mandated. Also, you are advised to take some linguistics classes to supplement the pure mathematics.

* * * * * * *​

User Ooraloo has created, in the past 3 months:
- 2 Gym battles, reffed to completion.
- And 59 more RP and Tower battle threads reffed to completion, including a dubious incident of reffing 2 Four Swords Quest by the same challenger, started over 2 consecutive days.

Again, following after Toon in a significant portion of title naming, and little flavourful content found at a skim.
Verdict: Passed. Licence renewed for another 6 months, and congratulations at having PTPlat to help out in the majority of Starting 101.

Well, that's it for me tonight. If anyone wants to submit a renewal application, do post in this thread. And yes, I went back to the OP and realised I skipped a lot of steps, so impeach me if you think this power abuse is too far.

White List (Renewal) Application
Why do you think you deserve to be white-listed?

Because the counters are nice
Which types of matches do you ref the most? Why?
Gyms because interest, Tourneys because UC, TLRs because I'm one of the few refs for them
Do you flavor? Why or Why not?
Nope, I hate literal writing and don't have the time to craft a tale
Any extra comments about yourself:
:>
 
Program: Reffing 101
Timezone:
EST
Reffing Experience (if any): I have plenty of experience with flashes and tower matches, including triples. Worth noting I put a lot more work into tower matches than flashes.
Why do you want to be tutored: RP's and gyms might not get results as fast a flash reffings, but not going at flash ref pacing is nice.
Any extra comments about yourself: I'm serious about that offer to refurbish profiles in the RP center
