Abbreviation of "Battle of the Bits user". Its plural form BotBrs is commonly used when referring to a group of Battle of the Bits users. Alternatively, you can address them with "all n00bz"!

Pronounced bot-bir or bot-burrr.

Levels



BotBr level-ups occur when any BotBr reaches a specific amount of points. A BotBr's current level is a simple method to display their efforts and commitment to BotB. Certain level-ups include the appropriation of Bonus Magic Powers; refer to the table below for the exact point requirements of each:

Mighty & Ascended



At level 17 a BotBr becomes
Mighty, and at level 27, they become
Ascended. Each of these grants the ability to host longer XHBs! For example, before reaching level 17, a BotBr could only host an OHB for formats they have the badges for; after becoming Mighty, they could also host 2HBs for those formats. The same is true for Ascended: at level 27, BotBrs with a badge in a format may also host a 4HB in that format.

Relatedly, BotBrs who obtain seven or more different badges are granted the ability to host OHBs of any format.

Here is a handy table of info about this feature:

Classes



Every time a BotBr levels up, they are (re)assigned a class based on their points.

Badges



Badges appear on a BotBr's profile page and next to their name on their comments.

Ailments



Ailments are both administered and healed by BotB Admins. They are used to protect the community from spambots and misbehaving BotBrs. Respect the system and stay healthy!

Scrub
A basic grounding! A scrub cannot edit the lyceum, bump threads, or tag entries. Additionally, their influence performs at one-tenth of the BotBr's actual voting strength. Normally assigned to those who commit scrublike behavior; see Scrub.

Parasite
A parasite cannot host. Usually assigned to users who break the hosting rules.

Troll
A troll has voting privileges revoked. Assigned to people that troll-vote, vote double, and/or vote on their own entries using alternate accounts (a BotBr is only allowed to vote once per-entry).

Zombi
A Zombi is muted and cannot post communications. Assigned to those who are disruptive or are hurting the site's atmosphere through communication. A zombi also cannot donload entries or their renders.

Mummi
All wrapped up and totally crippled. Assigned to serious trolls and spambots.

Those we don't speak of...
As of 2022-05-17, some seems to have turned unphysical. Those who has asked for their disappearing, and bring their work with them. Those who has went missing because most of their work being too violating of not just rules, but also the sites legal terms. Those who are just better off being forgotten. But still, relics in form of phantom-presence of them or their works, but that just leads you back to where you came from, can be seen and reminds you that they once were there.

Level 30 Club



Reaching level 30 is not an easy task on this site - you need at least 118353 points to do so. It marks a moment, when you not only level up from 29 to 30, but from sanity to insanity. The next level you could reach is over twice as much points away as level 30! Check out a full list of all BotBrs with Level 30+ here!
Just because I love stats, here's a list of every account (except BotB and LyceumExploiter) who reached Level 30!
