Rating 102 Team Rating is entirely subjective. There's no "right" way to rate and it's why we have so many different raters giving different opinions. However, many potential raters are on the right track, but they aren't doing what is expected of a Team Rater. Whether this means they don't identify threats to a team effectively, or that they don't suggest very positive changes, etc. it's an issue that prevents potential raters from receiving a Team Rater badge for their efforts. No longer will this be an issue. This thread is to share details of Smogon's newest Team Rating Program: Rating 102. Rating 102 contains a select group of active Team Raters picked by Delko and Harsha. This group will discuss potential raters weekly, looking at RMT carefully to find team raters on the right track, but in need of a push to become an official Smogon Team Rater. You do not sign up for this. One of our members will be contacting you personally, and will ask if you would like to receive tips to become an official Team Rater. Whether you accept or not is up to you, but remember: If we contact you, it means we feel you are on the path to becoming an exceptional rater who is already close to receiving the honor of becoming an official Team Rater and receiving the Team Rater Badge. The following users are currently on the committee of Rating 102: Harsha (co-leader) Delko (co-leader) DestinyUnknown Jirachi Pocket tab This thread can be used to ask questions or post concerns. One thing we hope to accomplish is losing the sense of feeling "lost" in Rate My Team. If you feel like you should be recognized for your efforts and we haven't contacted you, please post here or privately PM us. We want to work with everyone to make RMT a better place overall. Remember, Rating Basics will still be available for everyone to practice rating, but this program will solely work with people on the right track. Finally, thank you to Bloo, Haunter, and kd24 for running the original Rating 102 team, and mostwanted, San_Pellegrino, and New World Order for participating.
