Creator: Pwnzor1130 May 7, 2012 9:06pm
Should Veteran and Scout have different requirements?

Old Vets, new scouts, Editors, Moba members, none of this even means anything.

There's plenty of new members who vote stuff because it looks cool. There's plenty of Old Vets who barely know how to play the game, or perhaps they do know how but simply aren't very stellar at it.

Truthfully speaking, Orange name, Tan name, Green name, it really means nothing in terms of being qualified to say "This guide is good, that guide is not good."

I stopped thinking Moba was about having the "Absolute best" guides at the top quite some time ago, because the website simply isn't designed for that.

And that's fine.

As long as you have a working knowledge of the game and assuming that the 4 other people who +scouted have a working knowledge of the game, no improper guide will become featured.

If you can find a featured guide that doesn't deserve to be featured, please draw it to our attention.

Additionally, I have not, to my knowledge received +rep for being a girl or gave any other MobaFire member +rep for being female. Anyone stupid enough to give someone else +rep for being a girl is well, stupid.

What was I thinking. Of course you're qualified.

Being a girl doesn't mean auto +rep unless you ask for it...having a sig shop doesn't either...it took me nearly a year to get 200 +rep/get promoted. And I was quite active too...:P

+rep is just a popularity contest...that's the problem with making it the way people get promoted...it has nothing to do with skill and ends up having very little to do with helping people or doing good things for the site in a lot of cases (not in all, but admit it...most have us have randomly +rep'd someone over and over again for no reason)...it's really just "a bunch of people decided to +rep me because I'm that cool"...which is fine, but that shouldn't be the basis for any promotion that is related to reviewing guides.

The problem we've had with making ELO a requirement is that even if we wanted to, we couldn't. It's impossible for us to verify if mobafire account = LoL account because we can't tie it in with Riot's summoner system, because well, it's their system. Also it would take a lot of time for people to check ELO, verify, check again if someone claims they're below require ELO, etc. That is a couple of the many problems with using ELO as a requirement for a promotion.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!
