    If you want to do a pure Rocket RP, why can't you use the RP forum?

    Pure RP groups aren't banned in social groups, either. But having ranking systems is not allowed. That's where the issue is.

    What's wrong with ranks is that it's against the rules for a member to tell another member what to do, unless they're staff. We also oppose the idea of members organizing private little "gangs" under their control and then using them for feuds, which is what teams have been so far in the history of Bulbagarden.

    No one gets private armies, and no one bosses anyone around unless they're staff.

    If a leader has no authority over other members, then they are not a leader. Hence the title is meaningless.

    If a leader does have authority over other members, then the rules are being broken.

    Then tell me how will a Team - Rp go on without commanders or leader. The Ranks thought of currently are -

    1: Leader
    2: Commanders (2-4)
    3: Elite Grunt
    4: Head Scientist
    5: Scientist
    6: Battling Specialist
    7: Grunt

    Exept for the first 4, the People "RPing" will choose what/how many type of Member will they be. Grunts and Battling Specialists will be promoted to Elite Grunt if they do missions a lot and, have success in them. Scientists could get promoted to Head Scientist very rarely. One person could be a lot of things.

    Like a person who is Scientist and a Grunt, Helps the team in both Sides a lot, could become a Elite Grunt and a Head Scientist.

    Elites do not control the grunts, instead they get more dangerous missions. Head Scientists on the other hand, while they do not control the scientists, help them in dangerous experiments.

    Grunt group Leaders, usually elites, give out basic orders, nothing else. read someof the basic orders below.

    Some very great Elites or scientist might become a commander.

    Commanders just give basic orders, if they give orders like your saying, they get demoted to the very first stage of Grunts or scientists. Basic Orders include - "Okay Team, Here are we. ____ and _____ Please find the communication satellite reciever and plant the bomb in it. We will shut it down from the inside"

    These types.

    Boss is boss, They create missions. and sometimes lead the way like commanders. the most experienced battler sometimes becomes a boss.

    They should make all quadruple Pokemon ride able along with Gogoat.

    If you did that in the roleplaying game forum, it would be one thing. In the RPG forum, we have no problem with that character being a rocket scientist, and another being the rocket boss, and the character playing the Rocket boss saying "Scientist, you are now head of Team Rocket".

    This is because this interaction is between fictional characters who exist only inside the roleplaying game. Not between actual members. Giovanni (played by ShadowRaikou) is the boss of Team Rocket, not ShadowRaikou; and professor Sebastian (played by Musashi) is the Rocket scientist, not Musashi.

    The same does not happen in "Team" social groups. In Team Social groups, members - not fictional characters - are given a rank, and one member assume the role of boss and decide which other members to reward or punish by changing their ranks. This is not acceptable; it gives the boss authority we are not comfortable with over other members (not characters), and we will not permit it.

    ----------

    This is why while Teams are fine in the Roleplay forum, they are not welcome in Social Groups.

    I'm not going to say "absolutely not".

    I am however going to say it would have to be very carefully prepared and proposed to the staff, and we would definitely have to approve the entire RP structure to make sure there are no possibility of things in that group Roleplay spilling outside the group roleplay.

    I will also add that "carefully prepared" means probably multiple people proposing it together, and without giving us reason to think that this is an attempt to get teams back.

    As far as i know, battlestar is with me and Plc is totally against me.

    As i already said, The person on a above rank gives orders aside from basic orders like "I Order you to Shut up and Leave Team Rocket!" should get demoted and get a warning.

    They should make all quadruple Pokemon ride able along with Gogoat.

    I support this decision: there is no need to promote activities that only serve as exclusionary and segregationist. This decision is for the betterment of BMGf.
