    Default Exhibition Battle Nominations

    URPG, we are looking for volunteers for Exhibition Matches, a potentially exciting new way for you to show off your skills and learn from watching others do the same. For this to get started, we primarily need two things; we need a group of volunteers willing to battle for the entertainment of the masses, and we need to have masses in order to both watch and decide who they want to watch battle. We basically already have the masses, but we still need the volunteers, and that's what this is for.

    If you wish to volunteer and potentially be adored by the masses after getting a spectacular win against your assigned opponent (or be said opponent), I would like a few bits of information to make this easier.

    Username:
    Stats:
    Special Battles:

    Notes:

    I obviously need some sort of name to work with so we know who we're working with. Other than that, I am of the opinion that having stats readily available (especially as they are publicly accessible information) would allow the participants to form a more interesting battle through scouting and such.

    The Special Battles line is special (of course); it will let everyone know what types of battles you would be willing to do beyond the normal battle. This is a good place to put, for example, if you are a gym leader that is willing to take challenges for gym battles that is open to be watched by many. Also, if you are not willing to do certain types of battles (for example, you don't want to be challenged for a gym or challenge another gym, or you don't want to participate in Double Battles), you can put this here as well. If you do wish to do anything beyond simple Single Battles, it is probably in your best interest to list that here simply to promote them, as the more people see one of these as a potential idea for a match to watch, the more it comes up in their mind when they go to nominate (please do not use this as justification for pelting them with nomination requests; let them watch what they want to watch).

    The Notes line is for anything special that would be helpful for me to know (for example, if you aren't going to be available for the first planned battle, so not to include you in that list). I suppose you could put whatever you want, but anything that is not relevant is probably going to be disregarded. That said, if you need to let me know of something, please make use of this.

    For the sake of example, I shall include a filled out form so people may have a visual confirmation of what is to be expected if they need it.

    Notes: If you wish to know about Exhibition Battles, this post has information. Feel free to ask if you still have questions.

    ---

    With all this said, there are still a couple of questions I would like to ask you as volunteers and as an audience; namely, how long should this volunteering stage last, and how long should each nomination stage last before each battle? Personally, I think a 3 day volunteer period along with similar 3 day nomination periods would work, as would a 3 day volunteer period with week-long nominations (both assuming the battlers would get together and battle, with an audience, at their soonest possible convenience), but I feel getting input on these ideas from everyone involved would be best. Also, would each nomination period wait until the battles occur to start the next, or would the next period start as soon as the contestants were decided?

    Also, please note that I will allow people to volunteer after this initial volunteering period, but I will probably not include them in the then-current nomination period unless it was early on and wouldn't cause a ton of hassle with everyone who already voted.

    With that final note, I hope exhibition matches get a good start, and wish good luck to both the volunteers in their battles, and the audience in getting to watch good games. Happy Battling!

    ---

    So it's about time to get discussing what you want to see. We have a set of volunteers already who will be listed in this post (though you can always suggest yourself in a battle. It's probably best not to suggest someone else who didn't volunteer unless you talked to them about it though), and we need to decide what kind of battle you want to watch as well. I would suggest most rules (such as clauses) be decided on by both participants, though choosing the number of Pokémon outside of a gym battle or something could help in deciding how long of a game you want to watch. With that reasoning, I suggest bringing up battle ideas with the following bits of information.

    Participants:
    Type of Battle: (Single, Double, Triple, Rotation, and Wonder Launcher variants, as well as Gym battles and the like)
    Number of Pokémon:

    This will give a basic idea of what you want to see. Most likely these battles will take place on the weekend when there are more people on, though if there are a lot of people on at other times battles may take place then. Discussion is also good; potential battles are far more likely to occur if everyone shows interest in them. If, for some reason, the battle is too difficult to get done over AIM, we can try to work it into a forum battle or something so people can still watch it or something.

    These are the basic ideas I have, and as always, I'm willing to take suggestions. But for now, we need to get a few battles going so we have something to watch, so we really need ideas for those.

    Special Battles: I'll take gym challenges if the rules aren't super ridiculous or stacked, like I think a Monotype team challenge (at least not water or grass, to make it interesting) would be neat. Monotype in general are cool, and I'm up for some sort of theme to teams too. I'll do any doubles/triples/rotations/whatever.
    Notes: I'm mostly on during the day and not at night because of work. Hopefully that doesn't mess anything up.

    Also I think anyone should be allowed to enter at any time, especially if this isn't an official tournament type of thing. It should be open to anyone, since battling is just supposed to let people have a good time watching or participating. More battling is beneficial to a lot of people. Makes for busier refs and such.

    I don't know what exactly you're getting at by the nomination stuff, but it'd probably be easier to just vote on a style when people are around. Something like this would work better not really scheduled, since that makes it more like a tournament and people are less likely to participate after it's started for a while (as seen with the decline in battling in the Duel Peninsula). A thing might work like 3 days after picking a type, but life happens, and people might get busy or something could pop up, thus why I say just do it when there's enough people around.

    Alright, this looks like... more than I expected to see after a day of not really telling people it's here, though I suppose the sticky helps. That said, I think it would be a good idea to start with initial nominations at the end of 3 days after the initial post.

    @WinterVines and anyone else interested: The whole thing is open to anyone, and will continue to be even after this initial volunteering period. The idea behind the longer nomination process as opposed to a quick vote in a chat and battling from there is to allow people interested in watching more of a chance to catch when such a match would occur as well as have more of a chance to have a say in what they want to see. The vote-in-a-chat could very well work instead of (or in addition to) the nomination process since people would be on at that moment. And perhaps a way to help the nomination process idea would be to have more than one possible challenge decided on by everyone at once, so that if one falls through, there are still more available.

    Also, it would probably be a good idea for people to post when they normally are online, if we still do the nominations, simply so its less likely that a match that would be made horribly difficult due to time constraints would occur. Of course, one doesn't have to accept the challenge, but knowing possible challenges in the first place would probably make it easier for everyone. We could probably find some way to allow these matches to occur publicly, if both the battlers and the audience want, such as a forum battle with a discussion thread about it (though we all know how long that would take).

    And people can always do their own matches publicly; this is primarily just a way to promote and organize the idea. Someone who does not volunteer could publicly challenge one who has (or even another who has not), this is just for trying to get people interested in battling with an audience to make it easier and perhaps more consistent for it to happen in the first place.

    Notes:

    The Nitrogen Cycle


    Nitrogen is stored in land, the ocean, and the air, but unlike carbon, most of the nitrogen is in the atmosphere. Nitrogen gas (N2) is what makes up the majority of the air. In order to get access to this nitrogen, it must be fixed from the air.

    Nitrogen Fixation - N2 converts to NH4+ or NO3-. Accomplished through two mechanisms:

    1. Lightning - provide enough energy to break up N2 and make NO3-.

    2. Nitrogen-fixing Bacteria - live in soil or in nodules in the roots of certain plants (Alder trees). They change N2 to NH4+.

    Note: There are bacteria in the ocean that do the same job (cyanobacteria)

    Nitrification - NH4+ converted to NO2- and then converted to NO3-
    -bacteria responsible for the process
    -happens in the soil

    Uptake - plants absorb and use NO3- through their roots

    Ok, so I tried making a list of everyone who volunteered for this, focusing more on any restrictions that the volunteers did not want. Everyone who supplied stats have been linked as well. If you want me to add anything to this list, or if I messed up the link or something, let me know.
