Quidditch Reffs

Postby Prof. Tarma Amelia Black » Fri Oct 25, 2013 5:30 pm

Hi Quidditch Captains!

We have Quidditch games coming up! That means we need to have our lists updated for those peoples who are of your Houses who you feel are qualified to reff Quaffle and Snitch.

Thank you. :)

Ref duties/suggestions, both Quaffle (and Snitch as applicable):

* Use a server that works for you, not one that people harass you to be on. If you lag horribly, the game will be no fun for anyone.
* Ensure you have the correct (most up-to-date) question set well in advance.
* Be in #refchan as well as in #quidditch (#snitch), when you show to reff.
* Be ready to start receiving line-ups from around 8:45 pm HOL onwards. Line-ups must be received from the captains by 8:50 pm HOL latest.
* If the game has not started by 9:10pm HOL and you are the reason, you will not be eligible to ref the next game.
* After the game you will decide the MVP with the QB member in charge of the game. This discussion takes place in #refchan. If you are snitch reff, join the quaffle reff and QB member in there for discussion.
* After the match ends send a log of the game to the QB e-mail: quidditch [at] hol.org.uk . This applies to both the Quaffle and the Snitch games.
* Please send the log in the form of an attachment (.txt) if possible.
* Please only send the log of that specific game - not your log of the entire channel since the beginning of time. >>
* If you for some reason are not able to log, please make sure to mention this to the QB member responsible for the game BEFORE the game starts.
* Make sure you DO send the log - just remember to do it as soon as the game is over!
* Please check your log to make sure that any 'private' things, like 'notice' or whatnot, that are not game related are deleted from your log that you send in UNLESS IT IS HIGHLY ENTERTAINING
* You will receive your 25 points for reffing after the log is sent in (or you notify QB that you forgot to log it or are unable to send in the log for whatever reason - computer ate it, whatever)
* Make calls as you see fit, but ask the QB member if you need help making a decision.
* Snitch reffs – remember to make a screen cap of the grid you use in the game, before the game starts.
* Reffing doesn't have to be bot-fast. If you need to take a few seconds to consider the answers, do so. (An extra second or two spent weighing answers isn't a reffing sin and is in fact perfectly fine and could even prevent mistakes.)


Please notice that some of these duties/suggestions have been updated to catch up with the decisions at the QC/QB meeting(s) up through Fall 2014.

For all of our lovely new reffs who haven't been reffing for ages and ages and maybe even started up just this past SQL season ... and a refresher for our reffs who have been gone during the summer and will be returning to earn House points and gain glory ...

Some reminders!

1) Please remember to log your game and send in the log to the QB addie.
2) Remember to go to #refchan (this in particular to Snitch ref) to discuss MVP after the game with the other Reff and the QB person.
3) Snitch reffs -- please remember to make a screen cap of your grid that you use in the game, BEFORE the game.
4) Take your time calling the answer. It's easier to take a little longer to see who has the correct answer and get past any one-letter stuff than to have to go back and say - no, that belonged to so-and-so.
5) Any failure to remember to do any of these things means you owe QB at least 100 Beans EACH. Per question in the game -- OR -- will be punished by Unforgivable Curses (this last added in by Will who is actually one of the sweetest folks you'd ever want to meet).
