Hello! We start this new month with a few changes staff has been talking and now, they are a reality!
Since the soft-reboot, we have noticed some issues with the Medicine Cats' requirements. With fewer cats on each clan, it has become harder, not to say impossible, for them to rank up due to an excessive number of requirements that do not encourage Medicine Cats' roleplayers to fulfil. With this in mind and taking into consideration the current ranking for warriors, we edited the ranking system for medicine cats to be more realistic and more reachable
. Those new changes can be seen in the current Rank System
and the Clans Ranks' Board had been edited according to these changes too.
On another note, we have decided to change the way we choose Medicine Cat Apprentices (MCA). After some discussions and seeing the current flaws of the system, we have decided to keep the recommendation system but with a few changes. When an announcement is made about an open MCA slot, members will have five days from there to put their applications
. As soon as posted, applications will be locked and once the five days are over, all applications will be unlocked so the voting can start
This has been changed with the purpose of giving roleplayers the chance to see all the actual options for MCA before rushing to vote for the first one they see. It gives time to see all the possible characters that can take over the role and makes the final decision more meaningful. Despite all, we will be keeping the rule that even if an MCA gets 8 recommendations, the final decision is up to staff and admins. The instructions to put an application and to recommend are all found here: Medicine Cat Sign-up Sheet
