When I first joined the URPG, the limits placed on forum battles made perfect sense to me; 3 concurrent battles if you had access to AIM, and 5 if you didn't. The presumption was that people with AIM would get most battles done there, and in the early days this held true.
Now, though, I have serious trouble finding a ref on AIM; I've had to rely much more on the forum battles for my evolution battles. Several times, now, I've tried for hours in a row- usually 2 or 3- waiting for an AIM ref with two or three other interested battlers.
What I propose is that we increase - until there's a greater supply of Refs or they finish finals and become available - is increasing the forum battles allowed to 4 for people with AIM. This allows things to progress a little faster, but doesn't flood the forum overtaxing the refs working there. (Mostly I just see Ataro, but I'm sure others do it as well)
I'm open to suggestions; I understand reffing can be complicated, and it's something I don't have the affinity - nor desire - to do myself, and I appreciate that refs have real lives too, and as such aren't available every waking minute. This is just my suggestion to try and ease the burden on me personally, and others who may be in the same situation as I am.
