    Would like to get a recap on the requirements on arbiter and apply to be one. Sure some people on the forums can vouch for me maybe..

    Asking because I see @Millicent is short 700 points of the 2k requirement, and wondered if that rule was not absolute.

    If you have no "real" (as in given by trolls or whatnot) flags then you only need 1000 points instead of 2000

    Eagle eye you are! The arbiters voted to amend the requirements to allow anyone with over 1000 points with NO negative points against them and all other requirements filled to be allowed entry. We can definitely take new applications from those people meeting the normal, or newly amended, requirements now. Let's get some more new people in for the new year.

    Ok let's do it this way, if you are interested in becoming an arbiter and you fit either the old requirements or the new amended points/no negs requirement, pm me. List your qualifications, so your points etc.

    Darn, I have 20 off-topic.

    ETA: I also just realized that only four of them show and I only deserve one out of the ones showing. Does that mean the other 16 are wall posts?
  • ShiroNaiShiroNai Back from the dead...maybe?Posts: 4,453Member, Arbiter
    I don't believe that off-topics are flags. Could be wrong though.

    @DaBiscuitGod, I thought she meant negative points as in Off-Topic, Abuse, or Spam. If not, I'd love to join!

    I feel that undeserved negative flags, from back in the day when anyone could give them, shouldn't be counted?
    Yeah, perhaps a "Flag Wipe", or something like that.

    Hmm. I have one off-topic post, does that mean that I can't aspire to be an arbiter one day? :(

    I'll definitely be an arbiter soon.

    How about the requirement to qualify for the 1k point reduction is to have less then 10 negative points given by arbiters and admins? This would get rid of those silly off-topics on walls and be a refreshed start.

    I really don't like the report requirement. What about those of us who don't have high crows?
  • ShiroNaiShiroNai Back from the dead...maybe?Posts: 4,453Member, Arbiter
    I figure off topics aren't flags as they don't fall under the drop down menu like spam and abuse do.

    Yes. I should be able to check and see if they were given by a known trouble maker etc. We definitely had some issues there.

    To clarify, also, anything that negatively impacts your points total on the forum is considered as a negative flag.

    Arbiter requirements are not up for debate currently. This change was an administration one, not a player created change.

    Sorry for the confusion, I guess I didn't realize that off-topics have negative points. My bad.

    I'm going to make an assumption and say that off-topics giving negative points is turned off...

    I'm quite confused now. I'm just gonna go eat ice cream in the corner of my house...

    I thought off topic was in the drop down. I forgot it was its own button. It doesn't seem to affect points though from what I can tell.

    So having a few (Legitimate) Off-Topics isn't considered "Bad" in terms of being an Arbiter, as opposed to (Legitimate) Abuses? @Lisa
  • William2William2 Posts: 3,380Member, Arbiter
    So, @lisa, if I have a couple legitamate OT's, but those are the only negative points I have and I meet all other reauirements, could I become an arbiter?
