I'm assuming the site gains 5 cents every time somebody views the ads on each page, and there are two.

No that was a direct refference to one of the ending themes from Pokemon 4Ever, but I appreciate the Daft Punk option you had. ^^

It all makes me wanna work more for ASB and the forum all together it does it does.

On the topic of ways to increase activity, maybe a tournament or some other event. I know nothing gets me involved like the prospect of winning stuff. I know that a tournament may not work because the battles are probably the slowesr part of the ASB at the moment, but maybe something else?

I agree with sammy. I think if there was one big tournament where all the refs focused on that for a...week or so, or however long it took, then I think people would start to get more interested. So I second this :)

The tournament doesn't sound like a bad idea.

The major issue I have with the ASB is how long it takes before your battle actually gets reffed. I can post a move, and then wait for 2 months before it gets reffed. In my opinion we need more ref's. However, I don't have that good of an idea on how to get more. I'll most likely be applying myself, but I'm not sure how much time I would have to actually ref.

I also think a problem is not having enough people to get the new refs approved. If we could solve that problem, I'm sure the new refs would be itching to get their hands on some of the battles that are waiting around (I know I would).

A few points that I can make that have been pointed out to me in my one year span. A torunament MIGHT help some. The problem is that I don't really know how BIG it could be. A year ago there was I'd say about 20-ish people here and now there isn't nearly that number in regulars. Also, it would be hard for refs to concentrate on a week to do a tourny. We do this on our own time. Its easy to burn yourself out though. I really feel bad that I haven't reffed a round until yesterday in almost a month and a half. I'd be interested in doing a tourny somehow, if we could get a few dedicated people. It would have to be run by the higher ups though.

I for one would be completely open to a Grand Tournament, only... It wouldn't be very grand. We have like four active members, and maybe seven if you count the sporadically active ones. As for referee inactivity, I'm going to try to get on the ball with reffing, and you guys should too! It earns you money, and it helps the ASBL be more active and therefore awesome. If you want to keep discussing a Tournament though, I'm all ears.

I honestly think this could grow some. Most of the complaints I have heard is having to wait two months before your battle is reffed. If we could cut that down to reffing battles at maybe a week or two, i think that might help it grow.

If I get approved I'll help as much as I can!! I'm glad that the "higher powers" are listening to us mere mortals *bows to Velocity*

Yeah, and I'm working on a ref application right now, but we'll see whether I'm good enough to actually ref. There's also the issue where even if I am able to ref, I'm not sure how much time I would be able to sink into it, as I do quite a few other things, and don't have a lot of free time.

Oh shush.
Anyway, have you applied? If you have I'll check on your approval status.

Never hurts to try. ;)

A tournament may encourage more activity, but they also tend to take a very long time from start to finish. The only tournament that ever happened in this league (the Gym Leader Tournament from the old league) took about a year to get a winner, by which time most of the competitors had ended up leaving. Of course, if we could get enough activity from the refs it might be shorter, but tournaments tend to be a long term project.

I'd be willing to give a Tournament priority when I go to ref. That's a good point, though, KB. We'd have to get all the refs to ref the Tournament in a timely manner and I'm not sure how to do that!

The tourny may take a while. But there should be prizes for winning. Some kind of item, a free first stage pokemon, or something. Prizes always suck people into games.
