BotB declares a BotBr Class depending on a BotBr's contributions. Different acts grant different types of points. The type of points a BotBr has the most of is their respective Class.

"First you must know, to have more points you have to participate in BotB community, sharing stuff, doing music and having fun with the chiptunes and people." - ui

Different Classes

A BotBr with less than 25 pnts is considered a "n00b" and must participate with BotB more to ascend from this vernacular gutter jargon. It doesn't scar!! Promise!! xD

A general pnt is earned every day a BotBr is logged in. Posts & Comments are also worth pnts.

When any REMIXING compo is on the way there is a time to submit samples. Big bonus samplist pnts for getting samples into the compo's sample pack.

You get these points, mixing SOUNDS/SAMPLES in any of the REMIXING competitions, ALLGEARS OHC or S3XMODIT.

You get these points, making CHIPTUNES in the CHIP competitions or in any of the CHIP OHC's, (*.vt / *.sid / *.nsf / *.sap / *.vgm / *.sgc / *.tfm / *.hsc / *.dfm / *.rad / *.a2m / *.s3m (adlib only) / other adlib / *.gbs / *.zzt / Mario Paint / NTRQ / 8k / 12k/ 16k / 24k / 32k / 48k / the / list / keeps / GROWING).

You get these points for participating in the BotB OHBs. As BotB is changing terminology from OHC into OHB, this class should ideally be renamed.

You get these points for making graphics for BotB. Formats that give grafxicist points are SVG, ASCII, ANSI, Draw, and Photomash, and you can also earn these points by submitting mixbattle art to major battles such as Spring Tracks.

You get these points by participating in pixel OHBs, or submitting chipbattle art to major battles such as Winter/Summer Chip.

You get this points for voting for the tracks in any of the BATTLES on BotB (Detroit, 3xThemeChip, Winter/Summer Chip, OHBs, etc). You get one point per vote.

You get these points by adding to content to pages within BotB's Lyceum. But, you also lose points for taking content away, so be careful!

You get these points by hosting your own OHBs. The more participants you gather, the greater the reward!!

You get these points by adding tags to any submission on BotB. Tags are used for easier classification and sorting of submissions, so please be sensible about tagging things!

You get these points by making and uploading MP3 renders of other BotBr's music, so that their work can be accessible to all!! At the moment, you don't get renderist points for creating renders of your own tracks </3

You get these points by making maps for Doom in OHBs.

You get these points by making web pages in HTML/CSS OHBs. This class is also incredibly rare to come across.

You get these points for by doing stuff to make BotB better, such as programming IRC bots.

Not to be confused with Hackist! These points were an option to award for the first game jam compo.

Changing Classes

A BotBr's class changes to the class that he/she/they have the greatest amount points in, but this check is only done upon leveling up. In days of olde, a BotBr's class could change at any time.
