  Meet The Staff
Posted by: We Taste Pies... - 05-02-12, 07:03 PM - Forum: Announcements Archive - Replies (3)

Hi there! Hey, I don't remember seeing you around here before. Are you new? Really? Awesome! In that case, I hope you're enjoying the URPG and all the fun activities and the great community that we offer here. As you work on making new friends, collecting Pokemon, and moving along on your journey to become the best of the best, don't you think it'd be nice to have a helping hand?

Well, maybe you could...

MEET THE STAFF!

That's right! This Monday at 7 PM Central time on AIM, you'll have an opportunity to meet the URPG Staff. Have any questions or concerns? Want to provide us with feedback? Want to meet new, exotic people? You've come to the right place! Here's a lineup of the faces you can expect to see:

-Head-

Hkim

Leader of the URPG, Harry is one of the kindest and most patient people you could ever hope to meet! He is also occasionally hilarious. Harry's been in URPG since many of us were in diapers.

-Mods-

AmericanTreeFrog

AmericanTreeFrog (also known as ATF) is the head of our Contest division! He's your go-to person for everything contest (or sci-fi) related.

Bumblebee

Bumblebee is one of the elite rangers over at the National Park! He's also a ref, funny, and charming (probably).

ChainReaction01

Chainy is another one of our fabulous elite rangers! He's kind, loving, and when the moment arises, snarky.

Dog of Hellsing

Our current National Park head, Dog of Hellsing (or Jess as we like to call her) is also an accomplished writer! She's URPG's own Stephen King (if Stephen King had a love of My Little Pony).

Fossil Fusion

Fossil Fusion (whom we call Chris) is an accomplished ref and grader! He's our resident Englishmen, so you can talk to him if you're in need of a crumpet (or a Staff member in the UK time zone).

Monbrey

Monbrey is a senior ref who enjoys pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and fire. Looots of fire. He can help you out with any battle-related (or computer) problems.

Phantom Kat

Kat is one of our lovely Story heads and is also Second in Command of the URPG! She can answer all of your Story related questions and is well known for her writing expertise.

Scourge of Nemo

Scourge is our other Story head as well as the URPG's first official cardinal (and executioner). Check her out for writing advice, marriage licenses, and medieval weaponry.

We Taste Pies...

We Taste Pies... (or WTP for short) is our head ref, in charge of the Battle section. He knows the URPG's battle mechanics forwards and backwards and is also one of the oldest active URPGers (trust us, he knows his stuff).

-Officials-

Alaskapigeon

Alaska is a Councilor (fun term for Senior Grader) who can answer any of your Story related questions. She's also the URPG's crazy cat lady and has been known to meow on occasion.

Ataro

Ataro has held many URPG positions and has an intimate knowledge of the game. He's still one of URPG's oldest and is very knowledgeable in many topics, so he can help you out as well.

EmBreon

EmBreon (or Emma) is also a Councilor, as well as URPG's story grandma. She can help you with Story stuff or just read you a bedtime story.

Fierce Deity

Fierce Deity (or FD) has been in the URPG for many years and is an accomplished ref and gym leader. He knows all of what there is to know about battling (and rap).

Jack of Clovers

Jack was once head of URPG and in the past has held many URPG positions. He's another one of our oldest members and also has a touch of the luck of the Irish (if you catch him you get a pot of gold).

Roulette

Roulette is a ref and grader and is the URPG's Confederate representative (not really). He's always quick with a joke and likes training new members.

SiberianTiger

SiberianTiger (or ST) is a Senior ref who, like a real tiger, may or may not decide to eat you (probably not). He's been around for years and can help with many aspects of the URPG.

The Jr. Trainer

Jr. is another older member of the URPG and is familiar with many of our sections. He's currently one of our most experienced refs and battlers.

WinterVines

Winter is an elite ranger in the Park in addition to being a ref and grader. She's skilled at writing and is very helpful.


So if you'd like to meet any of these awesome people (or just need some help getting started), you should come to Meet The Staff!


  URPG Dojo League

[SIZE="5"]THE URPG DOJO LEAGUE[/SIZE]
[Image: 2m47yit.png]
[SIZE="1"]by Xaiaku[/SIZE]

5/18/12 = 11/18/12

Dojo Staff:
We Taste Pies...
Monbrey



The list can be found here



Welcome young-lings, to the URPG. As you may already know, we have a competitive system in URPG already which is full of gyms and resembles the system in the Pokemon games. You collect 8 badges from one region to challenge the Elite Four and eventually the Champion. However, the rigorous competition to be found in these Leagues may be a bit too steep for the newer members and so, we created the Dojo League. This League will be for all members joining after the 4th of February. If other members who joined before this date wish to compete, contact me and I will look into the matter. Sign ups will begin on May the 18th and the League itself will expire November the 18th. It is somewhat of an introduction to Gym battling for both challengers and leaders. Of course, those who show exemplary performance in this league will be rewarded in more than just experience.

-Would you like to own a Dojo? Here's how:

1. You must own at least 2 of your Dojo Pok?mon, which must be the same Type as the Dojo. {ex. Raichu for Electric is ok. Houndoom for Ghost is not.}
2. If there are multiple applications for the same dojo at one time, the best will be chosen.
3. When selecting an open Dojo, choose fully evolved Pok?mon(some exceptions may be allowed, don't be afraid to ask) based on the Dojo type (Vermillion City is Electric so Raichu would be a choice.)
4. The Pok?mon you choose that you don't own will be borrowed from the Dojo. You will have to buy TM’s from the Pok?mart and teach them to your borrowed Dojo Pok?mon. It is suggested that you own as many as the Dojo Pok?mon yourself as you can.
5. If you catch a new Pokemon and want to switch it with a borrowed Dojo Pokemon, you may do so. Any TM's on the borrowed Pokemon will transfer to the replacement Pokemon of the same type. Tauros -> Tauros {TM's transfer.} Tauros -> Blisssey {TM's don't transfer.}
6. As a special bonus, Dojo Senseis who own 4 Dojo Pok?mon may add up to 2 extra legal Pok?mon to their Dojo Pool (rented or owned), for a total of 8 Dojo Pok?mon. Dojo Senseis who own 6 Dojo Pok?mon may add up to 4 legal Pok?mon to their Dojo Pool (rental or owned) for a total of 10 Dojo Pok?mon. Those who own 8 Dojo Pokemon may add an additional 2 Pokemon (rented or owned) for a total of 12 Dojo Pokemon.
7. The trainer who manages to beat all 8 Dojos will be the Dojo Master. However, if another trainer manages to beat all 8 Dojos too, he or she will be able to challenge the current Master to a battle, and so on. Challengers that loses, including the Dojo Master, must wait 2 weeks to re-challenge.
8. Legendary Pokemon may not be used in any battles in this League.
9. The rules of Dojo battles are entirely at the discretion of each Dojo's Sensei.
10. The trainer who holds the title of Dojo Master at the end of the 6 month period shall receive the tournament prize. The best Dojo Sensei shall also receive a prize.
11. The tournament prize will consist of ANY Non-Legendary Pok?mon, alongside 2 TM, 2 BM/MT/SM and one held item, all of which you may keep permanently. In addition, you will receive 1 Legendary Pokemon of your choice for a 6 month period.
12. The best Dojo Sensei shall be decided upon by a panel of URPG Staff members and will receive 2 of their rented Dojo Pokemon with 2 EMs each.

Rules for a Dojo Master Battle
(Winner receives $4k, loser receives $3k, referee receives $4k)
  • 6 vs 6
  • Revolution/BW Revolution
  • Holds On
  • Sleep/Freeze Clause
  • OHKO Clause

  Legend Defender

Banner by K'sariya

One person holds the title: Legend Defender (LD). It is your job to beat him/her in a battle, and take that title away from him. Then you will be the new Legend Defender.

Rules
  • The LD chooses any Legendary Pokemon. This legend can't be used in any LD title battles. If the LD loses, the challenger becomes the new LD and chooses a Legendary Pokemon.
  • Challengers that lose must wait one week to challenge again. If the LD loses, they can't challenge until the next week.
  • Earnings are the same as a Gym Battle. Like a gym, the current LD shouldn't deny challenges unless they provide a good reason.
  • Every match, regardless of win or loss, must have its log linked in this thread.
  • If the LD successfully defends 10 battles in a row from at least 7 unique battlers, they receive the title of Legend Defender Champion and can select a permanent Legendary, thus stepping down from the LD position.
  • The 10 free EMs on the temporary legendary are lost.
  • The new LD will be rolled from the pool of challengers against the LD Champion.
  • Any LD Champion will be ineligible to compete in Legend Defender.
  • To challenge LD, Players must have 6 Pokemon and have been a member of URPG for at least one month.

Battle Rules
  • 4 VS. 4+
  • SM Private Full or Preview
  • Items Optional
  • Sleep, Freeze, OHKO, Accuracy, Evasion and Legend Clauses On
  • Mega, Z, Item and Species Clauses Optional
  • Starting Weather and Terrain Optional

The challenger may change any of the optional clauses or the battle size

LD battles pay like Gym battles. Refs are paid based on the amount of Pokemon used.

LD Champions: Synthesis (Zapdos), Ash K. (Rayquaza)

Current LD: Gold
Legend: Zeraora

BMG | PWN | PXR

[Image: p6IfxOL.png]
Banner by Mistral

Here you can find the URPG's Elite 4, Gym Leaders, and more. If you're interested in applying for an open gym, you may do so in the Apply For or Update a Gym (BMG | PWN | PXR) thread.

Gym Leaders in the URPG award a badge, TM, and extra money for defeating them. They are only allowed to use Pokemon in their lineup, found in this thread, although they may choose to edit their lineup, with the approval of his/her League Organizer. Gym Leaders are able to set the rules of their gym battles, as long as the rule is a legal rule (BMG | PWN | PXR). However, the battle must be 3 VS 3 minimum. If the battle mode involves sending Pokemon and moves in the chat/thread instead of privately, the leader can decide who sends his/her Pokemon first. Some leaders have specific rules they must use. Those gyms and their rules will be specified.

It is the League Organizer's responsibility to be in charge of their league and making sure their Gym Leaders are active.

A trainer may challenge a Gym Leader for his/her Gym Leader position if the trainer believes he/she can better defend the gym. However, the challenge must be approved by the League Organizer, who will decide the specifics of the challenge.

Would you like to be a Gym Leader? Check the Gym Leaders thread to see which Gyms are open.

Gym Leader Information

Applying:
  • Only Gyms that do not have a leader may be applied for.
  • In order to be a Gym Leader, your application be accepted by the appropriate League Organizer.
  • If there is more than one application for a Gym, the best will be chosen by the League Organizer.
  • Your application must include your AIM name, your anticipated lineup, and the TM of your Gym.
  • The Gym TM must be the same type as the Gym, and it must not be used by another Gym.
  • Gym Leaders are able to be in possession of a Kanto/Johto/Hoenn/Sinnoh/Unova Gym at the same time as an Orange League Gym.

The Lineup:
  • Gym Leaders must own at least 2 of their Gym Pokemon, which can not be a wild card.
  • Gym Leaders must have a lineup of 6 Pokemon, which can include rented Pokemon. If a Gym Leader owns 4 of their Gym Pokemon, he/she can have a lineup of 8 Pokemon, if he/she owns 6, then 10, and if he/she owns 8, then 12.
  • Gym Leaders are allowed one Pokemon that isn’t the Gym’s type, although that Pokemon needs to have some sort of relationship to the Gym type. These are called wild cards (WC). It's up to the League Organizer on what an acceptable wildcard is.
  • Legendary Pokemon are not allowed in a gym lineup.
  • Gym Leaders may change their lineup and are responsible for updating their lineup and other info in the Update a Gym! thread. WCs and not fully evolved Pokemon must be approved by the league organizer before a Gym Leader can use those Pokemon.

Rentals:
  • Pokemon that are rented by Gym Leaders must be kept in their stats. They may be taught moves and their Dream World ability like any other Pokemon they own, but rental Pokemon may only be used while the Gym Leader is defending his/her Gym.
  • If a Gym Leader acquires an owned version of a rental Pokemon, he/she may transfer all taught moves and its Dream World ability to the owned version when changing the rental Pokemon in his/her lineup to the owned version.
  • If you remove a rental Pokemon any other way, any taught moves and its Dream World ability are lost.
  • The Hidden Power type on a rental Pokemon must remain the same, even if you remove it from your lineup and add it again later and teach it a new Hidden Power. Therefore, you must note what Hidden Power type any of your previous rentals had.
  • If a rental Pokemon that knows Hidden Power has its moves transferred to an owned version, the owned version must get its own Hidden Power type rolled.

General Information:
  • A Gym Leader must keep all information regarding his/her Gym in his/her stats. This includes his/her lineup, successful challengers of the gym, and the Gym's win and loss record. This information must be kept, even after a Gym Leader no longer owns the gym.
  • A Gym Leader is considered to have his/her own Gym Badge, but only while he/she owns it.
  • All of a Gym Leader's Pokemon in his/her lineup that are able to learn the Gym TM through TM know it during a Gym Battle if they do not already, but only during a Gym Battle.
  • Gym Leaders are able to set the rules of their gym battles, as long as the rule is a legal rule. However, the battle must be higher than 1 VS. 1. If the battle mode involves sending Pokemon and moves in the chat/thread instead of privately, the leader can decide who sends his/her Pokemon first. Some leaders have specific rules they must use.
  • There may be periodic roll calls for Gym Leaders. If a Gym Leader does not respond in time, he/she may lose his/her gym.
  • If a person feels as though a Gym Leader is doing a bad job as a Gym Leader, and that person feels as though he/she is able to defend that Gym better, he/she may ask the League Organizer of that Gym Leader to challenge that Gym Leader for his/her position. The League Organizer has the right to not allow this sort of challenge if he/she feels the Gym Leader is doing fine or if the challenger is not good enough. If this sort of challenge is allowed, the League Organizer decides the specifics of the challenge, which should involve both players using only that Gym's Pokemon.

League Organisers:
  • Kanto: Monbrey
  • Johto: ChainReaction01
  • Hoenn: Fossil Fusion
  • Sinnoh: Monbrey
  • Unova: Bumblebee
  • Orange Islands: Roulette

First of all, please don't post in other people's story threads, unless the person specifically requests comments in his or her thread. If you'd like to comment on a story or have a question about the Stories section, then post it here.

And second, please give graders at least one week before you request a grade for your story in this thread, otherwise it'll get all cluttered 'n junk in here. Thanks.

So. This is a grader thing. Everyone post here. Everyone being graders only. >_>; YOU GET ONE POST. EVER. Edit your post with all the grades you do in the grading period. If you do not, you will not get paid for the grades. :<

Each grade should look like this:

Story Title with URL tags --> [URL=inserturl][/*URL] without the asterisk and with the actual URL instead of "inserturl"

Try to keep your logs up to date after you claim your pay, even if you have no new grades to add; it'll be easier on whomever is counting the next set wages if you clear out those grades from your log or move them to a "Paid" category.

NOW GET OUT THERE AND MAKE SOME MONEY.
