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 some REMIX compos are 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 REMIX competitions, ALLGEAR, S3XMODIT, etc. See full list under Format.

You get these points, making CHIPTUNES in the CHIP competitions or in any of the CHIP OHB's. Currently 39 different chip formats exist! See full list under Format.

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 these 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 entry voted on.

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.

Not to be confused with Hackist! These points are an award for game jam compos.

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

Other Class Types

Due to different reasons, maybe a bug or because BotB is a mysterious place with a lot of secrets, there are some more point types and sometimes BotBrs with classes different from the ones listed above. Here's a (hopefully complete) list of every other Point Class:

- Hackist :: You get these points for by doing stuff to make BotB better, such as programming IRC bots.
- Campist :: You get these points by managing BotB Bandcamp and uploading Battle Compilations on there.
- Posts :: In the past it was possible to get points for posting something in a forum thread. This is not possible anymore.
- Altruist
- Awesomist
- Buggist
- BotB :: Reserved for BotB Bank account only!
- 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 13, 14 :: numbers, links are to accounts having points of this class
- allgear, midi, s3xmodit, spc, wildchip, nsf, nsfplus, remix, sample, :: format tokens, links are to accounts having points of this class
- :: a point class with an empty name, example account here.

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.
