    Rater of the Week


    Do you rate often? Are your rates of good quality? Do you have the official Team Rater badge ([​IMG]) ?
    If you answered yes to the first two questions and no to the last one, you might win this! The Rater of the Week is a project, a bit similar to the OU Potato award, that recognize the hard work of raters without the official Team Rater badge!


    Here is how it will work:


    Here is what the winner gets:

    ~#ratemyteam VOps
    ~A place in the Rater of the Week archive
    ~More consideration for [​IMG][​IMG].

    Winners can rate any tier, and they can win it more than once, as long as they don't have the official Team Rater badge. This being said, the winner will be announced on Sundays, in this thread.


    Good luck to all and may the best rater win.
