Direct Link To This Post Topic: Newbies Blocked from Battlefields
    Posted: 21 January 2015 at 8:08pm
I have decided to take the step of closing the battlefields to people in the Newbies group. 

This is because there are far to many newbies signing up, not giving a shit to find out how things work, fucking up or posting "dunno how it works here" - despite there being a huge yellow box telling them how to get started.

This should now give new members a chance to earn a rep and figure out how things work round here. It should reduce the number of "drive by losers" who disappear after there first loss.


To newbies who are eager to get to the fields, check out the How To Get Started guide as well as reading the Site Battle Rules. Checking out the Battlefield and how the battles are setup and voted on will give you a good start when you are able to battle.

For vets of other sites, you should also drop some Open Mics, and more importantly some feedback on others, helping to build up a reputation for your self, helping to encourage people to want to battle you as well as showing off your skill and knowledge.

For beginners you should check out the Elevation Centre and Rap Tutorials for help and advice to improve your skills and avoid a landslide loss.

Good idea. Its not like it takes much to get out of it. What is it 50 posts? It'll put a few people off but we need the quality control.

Not sure if this is possible but...could we have some kind of vouching system whereby if you're an established member on the site then you can vouch for a newbie (I.e. If you know them from another site and they are sensible) and it means they aren't subject to this?

In general though I think it's a good idea...may need to police spamming a bit more.

Unfortunately it would be to much hassle. They would need to be taken outside of the Ladder Group so would but progress with post counts.

It could also only be done by my self, not the mods, and I doubt I would have the time to pop up and move people about.

Besides, as others have said, it doesn't take long to get out of newbie with legit activity. Few open mics, feed and general discussions and they'll be able to battle in no time.

Yeah fair play, I was just thinking if you're discouraging "good" noobs but definitely sounds like it's not worth the effort

In the long wrong it will help our the quality of votes and battles a bit.

Can't have the fake account, one vote and never log onto it again shit.
Or the sniping every new account that logs on posts a callout bullshit.
Go my Minions!

Not sure what either of you are on about, the battles up and awaiting votes here:
http://www.lyricalassault.co.uk/forum/text-name-of-fear-vs-eye-five-00_topic38409.html
People need to learn there's more than one page!


Any newbies who have open battles but haven't dropped their verse, post it here and I'll move it (tell me the battle it's for)
