    I've made another Battle Rating Team application thread to start afresh after the several months of no community battles for the old battle rating team. Due to it being a long time, the majority of the old team has probably quit or aren't interested in it anymore, so there will be spots open to people who I believe are qualified. Anyways, back to the main stuff:

    Are you an expert in competitive battling, even if it's in a specific tier? Then you should join the Battle Rating team and help us rate battles that players have submitted for the Community Battles series to see if they're worthy of being uploaded onto our Youtube channel. Here's the application:

    Alias: (The name you usually go by around the PO community)
    Tier Specialties: (What tiers are you most knowledgeable in?)
    Experience: (How long have you been playing competitively?)
    Accomplishments: (Do you have any credentials, such as big tournament wins, peak ladder ratings/rankings, etc.)

    Current Evaluation team:
    - Hikari
    - Fitzy
    - Finchinator
    - Tyki
    - Mutalisk
    - ThatIsWhatSheSaid
    - Michael

    Be sure to check here every round to check if spots are open, as raters may either quit or get removed due to lack of activity.

    I approved 6 players to make the total to 7. I might add more, especially since there were a lot of good candidates here, but 7 seems like a reasonable number. I'll be PM'ing all of the approved battle raters information about what to do.

    Signups will still be open, as there will be raters that will either quit or get kicked from lack of activity at some point.

    Experience: About a year
    Accomplishments: I do UU QC, I've written several articles for LU and UU, I've peaked to 100 rankwise (not pointwise) on the tier, but I didn't CP that one because I didn't know the forums existed back then, so my current peak is in my sig. Also, my peak for No Preview Ubers is in my sig, and it's not too shabby.
    LU I got #62, and UU I got in top 100, and I barely even try on ladder cuz I don't have that much time. I'm also a BF Ubers Reviewer and I'm a UU Tutor for PO Academy

    After this round of SYB, I will be doing a kick of all inactive evaluators.

    Bumping this for more people to see, I may make a fresh one.
