This is a thread containing information important to Rangers. Here you'll find info on Wages, a guide for making Log posts, and other such things. It is also copyrighted to Dog of Hellsing and other Staff's input
1) RANGER WAGES
Rangers make money for every post they make, but the amounts change depending on quality of your Battle Posts and Non-Battle Posts (see below for details).
2) ENCOUNTER ROLLS
At the beginning of any trip into the Park, the Ranger must either a) ask someone from the below list to roll 15 encounters, then PM all 15 to the Ranger or b) make a chatroom, invite someone from the below list, roll 15 encounters and keep the list handy. Either way, whoever rolled or watched must post in the Encounter Tracker thread. If an item such as a Voice Disc or Repellent is used, rerolls left must be redone the same way and posted.
3) BATTLE STATISTICS
During a battle, you must include Battle Statistics somewhere in each of your posts. This is akin to how refs post Pokemon stats at the end of every turn.
The following is an example taken from Sam's Trial Run RP with Yoda:

4) BATTLE POSTS AND NON-BATTLE POSTS/RANGER WAGES II
Every post that contains Battle Statistics is considered a Battle Post. Depending on the quality of your Battle Posts, you may or may not get all the wages you're entitled to each month. If your Posts are sloppy, extremely short, lack realism, and so on, you'll be hurting your chances of receiving full pay. On the other hand, fleshed-out, fair, realistic Posts will help ensure you get all the money you're entitled to. Non-battle Posts (also known as regular posts) also earn a Ranger money. The payout amounts and method are as follows:
Every Wages period, whoever is doing Wages will check four of each Ranger's posts: the first and last in any given RP, a Battle Post, and a random post. Depending on the quality of these four posts, the Ranger will receive:
$500 for each Non-Battle Post if 3-4 posts are of poor quality
$750 for each Non-Battle Post if 2 posts are of fair quality and 2 are of poor quality
$1,000 for each Non-Battle Post if 3-4 posts are of fair quality
$1,000 for each Battle Post if 3-4 posts are of poor quality
$1,500 for each Battle Post if 2 posts are of fair quality and 2 are of poor quality
$2,000 for each Battle Post if 3-4 posts are of fair quality
Rangers get double pay plus 500 extra for each post they make, according to the quality of the roleplay. Rangers must note which posts are posts made for a Team RP in their logs to ensure Team RP wages are paid. If a Trainer leaves/is escorted from a Team RP and it becomes a normal one, the Ranger’s pay returns to normal. If this happens clearly state which post ends the Team RP so as not to be overpaid.
5) TRAINER STATS
At the end of each post, Rangers must include the following information:
Area Effects (Remaining Encounters, as well as things such as Repellents or certain Pokemon Abilities)
Pokemon Stats (Include Nature, Ability, HP, and any changes in stats/status condition)
Total Captured Pokemon
It can be in any order you want, and you can include other things if you like, but these are the main things you need to keep track of during the RP.
The following is an example of Trainer Stats from Sam's Trial Run RP with Dragoness:
Note: It's the Ranger's decision to count encounters before or after each Encounter ends. In this example, Dragoness had encountered a Sandshrew, but you can see the Encounters Remaining is still at 15. This is because the Ranger wasn't going to subtract an Encounter until after the battle. Do it whichever is easier for you.Originally Posted by Sam

6) POSTING LOGS
Rangers have Logs, just like Refs, which helps those doing Ranger Wages decide how much money each Ranger gets every wages period. The following info is needed for each Log:
Link to RP
RP Log Number
Links to Non-Battle Posts: Post #1 ; Post #2 ; Post #3 ; etc, etc, etc
Pokemon (T) v Pokemon (W)
Links to Battle Posts: Post #1 ; Post #2, Post #3 ; etc, etc, etc
Paid Till Here link
Include a link to the first post of each RP you do, so those doing Ranger Wages don't have to search through page upon page to track down all your RPs. Every RP you take part in has its own Log. So if you've taken two Trainers through the Park and accept another, you would be on Log Number 3. The Trainer Name is the name of the member, NOT their RP character name. Location should be self-explanatory. Pokemon (T) means the Trainer's Pokemon and Pokemon (W) means the Wild Pokemon. Finally, the Links to Battle Posts are just that; links to each Battle Post that take place in the RP. Doing Logs by RP instead of by individual posts allows those doing Ranger Wages to quickly scan through the RPs you been in to check and make sure all claimed Battle Posts are, indeed, Battle Posts. After each Wages period, edit the Paid Till Here link to show the last post you were paid to. This lets Rangers quickly, easily, and accurately find which post you will start being paid from next Wages period.
The following is an example of a Ranger Log:
You can make your Ranger log however you like as long as we can follow it for doing wages. Feel free to get creative!Originally Posted by WinterVines

7) LABELING POSTS
All posts made by a Ranger must either be labeled BP (for Battle Post) or NBP (for Non-Battle Post; you can also use something else, like NP or NB). This way, Rangers can easily see what kind of post they are giving Wages for.
