    Default National Park Update!

    All right people, it's getting closer to that time! Edits have been done to some of the threads to take into consideration changes that have been made to the Park. Here's what's new:

    -Starting from the day the Park reopens, we will now make use of Minimum Character Requirements. This is the number of characters you need to have in order to capture a Pokemon. Each Rank has its own MCR. The NBP of a Trainer will count towards the MCR of the next Pokemon that Trainer encounters (if you post three times before you meet x Pokemon, those three posts count towards its MCR. If you post two times before you encounter your next Pokemon, those two posts will count towards that Pokemon's MCR). This is now Rule 21 in the Rules thread.

    -New Items have been added to the Park to reduce the MCR of a specific Pokemon. Each Pokemon can have its MCR reduced by up to 20%. The new Items take off a certain number of characters. The total number of characters that can be removed from each Rank to obtain 20% has been listed in both the Parkpedia and the Pokemon Location List so people can immediately see how many characters total can be knocked off.

    -In order to flee from Wild Pokemon, a Trainer must first have their escape attempt rolled by the Ranger. This roll has to be witnessed by a staff member of the URPG and the result must be posted in the Escape Attempt thread. However, a Trainer using a PokeDoll will escape from a Wild Pokemon 100% of the time. This is now Rule 22 in the Rules thread.

    -Rangers can now reroll a Trainer's encounter list depending on how that Trainer is doing. Trainers doing very poorly can have their lists rerolled for only Common and Uncommon Pokemon, leaving out all other Ranks. Trainers doing very good can have their lists rerolled for only Pokemon in the Uncommon and above Ranks, leaving out Common Pokemon. Rangers must first get permission from an Elite Ranger before they reroll a Trainer's list, and they can only reroll the list twice for the current visit. This is now Rule 23 in the Rules thread.

    -Temporary Licenses will no longer be given out. All Ranger Tests will either be Pass or Fail.

    -Ranger Tests now consist of two parts; the "Ranger's Last Reply" and the "Trainer's Reply". This gives a Ranger more to work with when posting and lets them see exactly how the Trainer's post is interacting with the Ranger's Last Post.

    Currently we're getting the new Ranger Tests ready, and Phoenix is fixing up the Capture Rate calc to reflect the enforcement of MCRs. I'm hoping to get the Tests out by Saturday; when we get five Rangers back on active duty, I will declare the Park reopened.

    I hope we get paid more now :/

    Can this not be witnessed by another Ranger?

    Um... My Park run has not been replied to in literally like a month or longer. Its in the woods. So does that mean it carries on over? Because I captured an Ursaring and Eevee.

    Any park runs that started before the park closed have the old rules applied to them.

    Very excited about this, been waiting AAAAGES for the Park to reopen. Hopefully I'll soon be a Ranger and/or there'll be new Rangers to take over my own sadly abandoned run :D

    This is great news. Can't for to go through the new Park! Can't wait to be a Ranger! Can't wait for a lot of things!

    I'm impatient. :(

    But really this is good news. I'm very excited.

    I sure hope not. It could still cause issues because there are some people with RPs still up, I just hope that when the park reopens the rules start to apply there, and any captured pokemon in the individual RPs are still captured as long as they're okay'd. Like for example, my RP over at PE2K with sheepy as my ranger, hasn't been replied to since 5-25, but sheepy says when the park reopens she'll start replying again because she doesn't want me to capture something that I don't deserve, or will get taken away from me, even though I already captured a Haunter (but that was already okay'd by ST way back when he had that pokemon recall thing.

    I agree with you, imo when the Park reopens everything from then on (including partial runs) should have the new rules applied to it. I was just restating something a high-up said (DoH, or Marth, or Eraizaa, or someone).

    Well, when the Park closed we were allowing Rangers to continue their Trainers' RPs with the old rules, since no one knew what would be changed/added/whatever. But once the Park reopens, current RPs will have the new rules applied to them. It keeps me and the other Park staff from going insane trying to keep track of which RP should be using x set of rules and which should be using y set of rules and crap.

    However, all Mon caught in RPs before the Park closed will not be affected by the new rules. Basically if you've caught it you keep it. It's only fair and again will help me and my staff keep our sanity.

    Double-post ftw!

    One thing I forgot to mention is that we're making a 500 character limit for NBPs, for both Rangers and Trainers. This is mainly to cut down on Trainers running into Mon they don't want and just posting, "I dun wanna it let's move on" or whatever. It'll also encourage Rangers to make longer posts to give the Trainer more to work with and vice-versa. This will be Rule 24 in the Rules list.

    Triple-post amgz!

    So I lied. I got three Tests done but I've already sent them out to everyone, so yeah!

    Oh and BB, Ranger's still get paid the same amount, but I might increase pay for NBP a bit, maybe to 500 or so. Dunno yet.

    At any rate, the Park is almost back in business! I hope you guys are ready for it! ^^
