So recently, everyone has asked to become an approver. These same people have also pointed out flaws in the current system, and they are correct. Therefore, I'm now wanting a new approver. As an approver, your duties would be to approve (or not approve) various prizes and teams in both the registration and prizes. You approve a post if everything is correct, and you disapprove it if things are missing or incorrect. For payment, you have to keep track of how many approvals you have done, in each thread and of individual people, and you get an Approver Token (similar to a ref counter in that it can be applied anywhere). You get an AC once you have either approved/disapproved 5 Teams OR 10 Prize posts. To be objective and fair, in order to become an approver, you must fill out an application and approve a test. The top five people on the test will conduct an interview of sorts with me to help me make my decision. If I can't decide after this, I will give the candidates a harder test and base my decision off of that. In order to apply, fill out the application, and point out every single problem in the test. Please don't make corrections over the test, just say what specifically is wrong with each pokemon. Also, on the test, assume pokemon are brand new and only get moves from level 25 and below(except for slowking; assume you can buy a slowking from the start, but it still has level 25 moves and under).
