Right tennis you want a clear out now? Well we could have a bi-monthly clear-out with the first one being at the end of this month (in 4 days) that gives us time to improve the testing system. Agreeing that applicants need to have a Smogon account, also Goldsaber now has one so you don't need to send them for him any more Captain, thank you for doing it for him while he needed help. Sending results should be part of the test I will add it. Who to test: Only test people who you know of as reasonably active and preferably have been in a couple of your MTs so you know how they act, if they have not ask if someone you know can vouch for them. The TO test Before the test give them a link to the FAQ and tell them to read it IN FULL, give them time and say that they can take the test another day if they don't have time to read it. You should also check that they have an Activated Smogon account so they can give me results, don't test them unless they have one. 1. Battle them. They would not have to win (or even do well at all), just prove that they had a general grip on the game and are not a total n00b. If they fail here direct them to the Smogon analysis, and apprentice program. 2. Ask them to do a 8 player MT. Watch the tourney and give them advice on what to do if something goes wrong. If they make small mistakes but listen to your advice let them pass, if they don't listen or make big mistakes fail them. Whether they pass or fail tell me, if they fail I will put them on a "may not reapply until X date" list. Send me the results for the tourney whether they pass or fail. If they pass remind them to record and send me the results, I will only add them to the approved TO list once I have received their first set of results, and confirmation from a VTO that they did a test tourney. 3. Those who pass will be able to do MTs until the next clear out, but if someone complains about them they are liable to lose that ability. I have done quite a few updates on the FAQ.
