However, my ranger, RainbowMoondust, has gone missing. I have caught a Chingling and a Solrock, but she left before she could post the capture bit. Are you able to finish the RP of for me with the third Pokemon?
To be honest, there isn't really a strict limit on the amount of time you must respond in an AIM battle, since most of the time, a referee is responding asap and if he has to brb or w/e, he will just say it. The general time to follow would be 5 minutes.
For a ref test, it is normally up to the ref tester's discretion. Like with real battles, the general time that you're expected to ref a turn should be around 5 minutes as well. I don't think any tester will heavily penalize you even if you take longer than that to ref a turn, unless you're doing it for every turn and stats are also wrong.
Well, 'least you can stay within the ranks of us non-refs Welcome back to the club! *shoos evil ref calculators away*
And I'd give the grader test a try. If not right now, then after another story or two. When you feel a little more ready. And even if you fail, Nemo usually gives decent feedback to help you improve. So if nothing else, you will get better at grading/writing.
Whenever you feel ready. AND MAKE SURE YOU MENTION DRAGONESS TOLD YOU TO TAKE THE TEST (and expects a commission xD) Naw, I'm joking. Anyways, I'm headin' off. ttyl
Ref test? What on earth marks you wanna be a ref? You're braver than I am, anyway. I leave complicated things like reffing to tho pros.
Anyway, I will look over your story again, when you can edit it after the SWC. Or if you just PM the new story to me. Don't worry about the pay Just let me know when you are done.
