Your best bet is to increase your B/P rank to Private by voting fairly, get a Silver Whistle and make posts that contribute to the topics, then you are good to go to apply for the Elite Guard Barracks.Silver Whistle, eh? NG Cops here have their work cut out for 'em.
For the time being, everyone is welcome to post in the EGB thread to point out abusive submissions, every help is appreciated.
Voting on reviews (Helpful/Useless/Abusive) will increase a user's whistle status, but by how much for each respective vote?
I don't know for certain, but when I was working up my whistle years ago, I only whistled truly offensive/rule breaking reviews...I think it took about 30 to go from regular to bronze, and about 50 more to get that to silver.
When flagging abusive reviews, if you find one really bad one, check that user's other reviews - they tend to generate many more abusive reviews before they are blocked from Newgrounds.
Remember, flagging a review that is borderline that is NOT deemed abusive is counted AGAINST you. So, when in doubt, ask first (over at the EGB - I monitor it daily).
And don't be afraid to use that blam button. If your intentions are to eventually join the Elite Guard barracks, it is much easier to do so when you have good stats, show an honest attempt at blamming and keeping the balance in the Portal, and have more meaningful /helpful posts. I think you're on the right track - but when you are ready, let me know....
...because I am the Chief Recruitment Officer for the EGB. If you want in, you need to make it past me first. If you pass muster, active ranking members vote on your acceptance, and we take it from there. If you keep up the good work, you have a chance.... ;)
