Current Members: kokoloko (Senate Leader), DestinyUnknown, reachzero, RT., upstart, FlareBlitz, PK Gaming This isn't your grandfather's UU Council (hence the much sleeker name)! The Senate attempts to keep community involvement in the tiering system at a maximum, while centralizing the decision process to a select few members that are both most qualified in battling ability and reasoning skills to produce the best UU tier possible. Those chosen for the Senate have to their job very seriously. Consider it the equivalent of being a higher up in C&C with the amount of work/writing you'll have to do. Those wishing to apply should PM me and kokoloko with the following (APPLICATIONS CLOSED) Do not halfass this. We will be taking the entire application very seriously (especially the third part). These three things are very important because: 1. Senate members will be required to maintain a high ladder rating. This is to make sure that Senate members are constantly up to date in ladder trends. 2. Senate members will be required to engage in active discussion in the np megathreads. Non-members are encouraged to bring up potential suspects and start debates with Senate members. #genvuu will also turn into a channel where these debates can also take place. 3. Senate members will each be required to provide in-depth reasoning for their decision (think old school pain in the ass paragraphs) As you can see, this is going to be a hellish job. So, please, only apply if you intend on taking your position seriously. Notes: Senate members are permanent unless they step down or are replaced for inactivity. They will either be replaced through new applications or grabbed from an applicant from the last time. Suspects won't be determined by a nomination thread, but rather by community opinion in the np threads. If enough people bring up a Pokemon and debate it, a separate thread will be opened and the Senate will then vote on it. A suspect needs only to receive a 4-3 by the Senate vote to be banned.
