Idk why I'm doing all these thread titles in all caps. Must be a homage to HVK I guess.

FVC Applications

In the other thread I just made called "BIG FVC ANNOUNCEMENT" I said I was looking for at least 2 new members to join the FVC, and that I wanted the users to vote them in like last time. This is the thread where people who want to join the FVC should post their applications to join; any other posts on the subject should go on the other thread or they'll be deleted.

Your "application" doesn't have to be wordy and long at all, just answer these 3 questions:

1) Why do you want to be FVC?
2) What makes you a good voter?
3) What kind of voting activity would you expect from yourself if you were in the FVC?

If you think you want to apply but you have some questions, hit me up and I'm happy to tell you everything I know (about this).

1) Why do you want to be FVC?
- to undo a lot of Bnas and similar kinda votes.
- a lot of people get robbed in open battle in the audio and text sections both
- because this time a more reliable person is in charge of the same which is Kiwi
- i opted out of the last recruitment inspite of being the then FVC King coz it was being run by air heads with 0 grass root level deliverables so i just sat out of it till this day came along again.


2) What makes you a good voter?
- For starters i have averaged about 100 votes a month since i made an account here which is about a year now i think.
- I have a pretty good understanding of what is a winning verse unless there are too many international references that i do not know about
- with that said a lot of those 100 per month votes unquestionably bring quality and quantity both to the table.
- Also, I am one of the few guys (at my skill level) who votes against even the biggest names if required be in the biggest/smallest stages.
- High voting is a by product of a discipline i maintain to improve my own skills by reading as many battles as i can. which more or less translates to the fact that every vote/rating i drop/give is done after i have thoroughly understood the verses.
- Also coz my dick so big you could use it as a selfie stick for the whole solar system!!


3) What kind of voting activity would you expect from yourself if you were in the FVC?
- Nothing other than the fact that it would have increased VP.
- i will be continuing to vote on battles as i have always done.
- I may not open a voting thread coz mostly i do not need one coz i got on voting sprees quite often plus i do not vote on battles wherein the battlers are inactive voters themselves.
- My major focus will be the open ranked arenas audio and texts both, texts being the primary one.
- I will only step into tourney battles which i like reading which are most of them or need more votes, but i may/may not be voting on every tourney battle as is the case with me even without the FVC.
- lots of bobs and vagene shit.

1) Why do you want to be FVC? - I usually take a lot of time with my votes to give people clarity on what I think they could improve, why they won/lost/etc but its hard to put all that time/effort into votes for no recognition. Plus I wanna set a standard for other voters on this site because I see a lot of trash or bias votes. I also see this site straying too far away from battling your opponent, as lots of people bring generic indirect bars or similes that could apply to anyone. I wanna appreciate those that go above and beyond with their effort.

2) What makes you a good voter? - I don't come with bias. I understand there's lots of aspects that make a good verse, and I don't knock people down just because they're missing wordplay or complex multis, I try and highlight both the good and bad so people can actually improve. Sometimes good ideas are poorly executed, and I think its important to encourage creativity and originality rather than just say no sorry your multis weren't long enough and give no further feedback.

3) What kind of voting activity would you expect from yourself if you were in the FVC? - The main reason I only vote in patches is because there's no recognition or appreciation when I'm typing considered votes with good feedback, so it gets draining as I don't wanna simply fire off short votes just to get it done. With FVC you'd see a consistent amount of votes from me and I can assure you they'll all contain feedback to actually help battlers improve and give clarity on why I thought they won or lost.

1) Why do you want to be FVC?

There's less than 5 people that vote, and know how to vote. I'm tired of seeing and hearing people complain about shit voting and losing by an inch. I also want to inspire others to vote, since most people just battle without voting, which brings next to nothing to the site. I also want to make the FVC look good, especially after a lot of the controversy that surrounded it's existence. Most people on here also have jobs, which I legally cannot have, this gives me more time to leave votes for the site. I also enjoy helping others as well.

2) I have a completely calculated voting system, and I also break down each and everyone of my votes to every single detail, explaining as to why I picked the choice that I did, in order to prevent complaints of unfair voting. Also, I will request a deletion of my votes if I realize that I missed something in a battle, which prevents any unfair voting on my side. Besides that, I don't have any beef/feuds with anyone on the site that can lead to biased voting. I also know most of the categories with decent knowledge, Concepts, Rhyming, Execution, Clarity and Structure all feeding into if each bar has a heavy punch. I combine each category to see how hard each punch actually hits, and also factor in consistency to see if they maintain the same level of quality throughout a battle (1-Bars excluded). I also know how to vote on topicals and cyphers as well.

3) 30-40 high quality votes a month. If the pandemic shit keeps up? Probably near 60. Votes on next to all tournament battles, except for ones that don't have expos posted that I can't fairly vote on.

1) Why do you want to be FVC?
to make sure battles close, to make sure someone like bnas isn't getting free wins because of uneducated voting. to help the site, give an unbiased perspective.
2) What makes you a good voter?
experienced battler and voter. taught by some of the best on the site. former fvc member, and at one point i was going to run the fvc myself. i give unbiased reviews, and try to point out what was wrong, to help people improve. i may not sugar coat it, but i feel like it's better to hear the truth.
3) What kind of voting activity would you expect from yourself if you were in the FVC?
all tourny battles, card battles, and as much in the reg as i can. prob 1000 votes per season.

1) Why do you want to be FVC?
I have since the whole regime started. I was always denied because of voting power or because of hate from others. The situation has always been out of my hands, but for 3-4 years now I've wanted to be in the club. I'm tired of seeing dudes in it for the title, who drop 10 votes a month and because maybe they 'names popular' they get let off the hook. I would provide 150-200 votes a month. All the votes would be unbiased, as I am tired of 'said person' winning battles on this website because of their name


2) What makes you a good voter?
I've delt with the negativity first hand from thousands of dudes on this website. Meaning, I am not afraid to vote FAIRLY no matter who is battling who. If I think somebody won, they are getting my vote. If I'm the only one voting for said person and the other dudes got 10 votes, I wouldn't feel bad. This website is about opinion. Push all the hate aside, I been here since 2011 on this account, since 2008 on other accounts. I know what kind of format I personally like the most on this website, if somebody dosen't agree with me, that's alright. I've read/ voted on tens of thousands of battles on this website. Maybe some of the votes are quicker votes, but some battles also don't deserve much of an explanation (winner wise) as much as they deserve to be coached. Alot of dudes need to be taught right from wrong before critiquing their actual bars. Everyone deserves a chance yO


3) What kind of voting activity would you expect from yourself if you were in the FVC?
Lol. Good question, let the badge do the talking. I was sick for 10 days, I also had some family gatherings this past season. I could easily vote on 1000 battles a season, consistently. The real question here should be "what activity are the current FVC bringing". Well, none of them are at 100 votes in three months. That's pathetic. The FVC needs an overhaul and it starts right here. Enough said

The truth has been spoken !! TBH if Bnas is serious about the FVC and gonna vote as per the responsibility too i dnt see FVC failing ever.

I hate job interviews but fuck it....

1) Why do you want to be FVC?

Only way I'll ever have a title

2) What makes you a good voter?

I've been on here since 2012 you can say I'm a bit experienced. I can tell the difference between a well put together punch that works both ways and a forced attempt. I'm never too harsh with it & look for the positives in all verses instead of just pointing out the negatives.

3) What kind of voting activity would you expect from yourself if you were in the FVC?


I can admit that I don't usually vote on battles unless people ask me to vote or tourney bouts need votes. But if I get recruited then I'll have to step it up....and I will.

Thank you.

May as well throw my hat in this

1) Why do you want to be FVC?

I feel like I'm a great voter, and have been in the FVC multiple times which means I have experience in being able to live up to the vote requirements (explanations/number and volume of votes required).

2) What makes you a good voter?

I'm always fair regardless of names, titles, and reputation. Because of this, I give people who truly deliver the best content the fairest chance to win. This is what led to me being 2x FVC King on my other account

3) What kind of voting activity would you expect from yourself if you were in the FVC?

You can expect top level voting activity, the return of my personal vote thread, and also the encouragement of others to drop votes as well.

The FVC truly is an honor. However, I simply don't feel like I have the brain capacity for it. It's a lot of dedication to carry out the duties of the FVC in a way that's not only acceptable to the community but great for newer members to learn from and progress as well. I used to be in the FVC and I laid a lot of votes for a lot of people and felt I did really good doing so. I was removed, however, due to inactivity and the FVC was getting revised at the time anyways.

Good luck to all the new recruits for the FVC. Voting on multiple battles per day can be rather tasking but I'm sure they'll be able to do it.

1) Why do you want to be FVC?

Because I'm a good voter and I deserve 4vp for the sake of the site.

2) What makes you a good voter?

I'm a heavyweight battler and know exactly what to look for in a bar, particularly bad aspects which shouldn't be there. I'm excellent at criticizing bad bars (albeit not so much at sparing the feelings of their authors). In addition, I know how to heap on praise when needed, and make tight judgments for close battles.

3) What kind of voting activity would you expect from yourself if you were in the FVC?

I would try to vote on at least one regular arena battle a day (on average, at least), as well as all tournament battles.

1) honestly I just want to see newer battlers improve. I’m not here to nitpick bars or sugarcoat anything. I believe that the decline of the site could be attributed to a lack of education and retention in new guys. As much as I hate reading bonus battles it’s always exciting to see improvement and potential. Also some great high profile battles get slept. It’d be nice if I could just have my own stickies voting thread, tired of getting IMs lol

2) I like to highlight a battlers strengths while pointing out major flaws with tact. I’m highly against nit picking and prefer to enjoy bars for what they are and the creative effort put forward. Only when a bar is so gendered by a negative aspect that it negates the impact do I speak on it. Folks have gotten to the point where their expos are longer than verses. Their critiques come off as meticulous and asinine with detail. Turns some off from battling all together. Telling a noob his wording is off in a paragraph when dude can barely rhyme two words together is stupid. Lol

3) I’m going to be honest here, when I choose battles to vote on it’s either randomly from the new battles list or battles I’m actually interested in. If I had a thread I’d hit anything posted in there. After those I’ll hit a couple on the new battles list and then focus on urgent battles (PPVs, tourneys, etc.) Otherwise trying to vote on every single battle? I’d lose my mind lol

1) Why do you want to be FVC?

Why the fuck not dickSnots!? All the free hash, weed and liquor I could ask for!? lol... - On a serious note though, here's why: I am PASSIONATE about rap. Even if complete strangers are battling, I cringe when I see bad votes. I called out a bad voter on this site just recently actually. I have been battling for a while and have championship titles in other leagues. I do think I can bring a lot to the table. Imagine a former retired NBA ref. He's walking down the street past the park, seeing kids playing ball. If he just happen to see a terrible call made, he would probably cringe inside at least. That is me with rap. With me, I will always take the time to ensure I always make the right call. I am a person you WANT voting on your battles, I promise. I don't want to be cocky, I've seen some LYRICAL BEASTS on here I prally don't want that smoke with in a battle, so don't think I'm being cocky. But I speak with great confidence when I say, you want me here voting. I know it's a beef site, and there's plenty of wack people here who vote shitty I could beef with (Newcastle, Chef the methhead, etc) but at the end of the day, you have to show love to get love. I would take PRIDE in being a FVC member, and I would love the opportunity to prove myself and simultaneously earn respect from the vets around here.

2) What makes you a good voter?[/B

I know for a FACT that I am knowledgeable of the game. I have titles in other battlegrounds. I have extensive knowledge in multiple syllable rhymes, wordplay, metaphors, vocabulary and punchlines. Those are the main things I vote on in text. Audio, all of those things matter, but delivery, riding the beat, etc, matters too. I do not get bored. I love reading and listening to battles all day like a fucking nerd. I'm addicted to this. I take the time out to make sure I GET IT RIGHT! I have been in the game for years and have read and seen so many battles, that I have caught sooooo many people biting. My brother used to run a FB rap group that we ended up disbanding, and it almost turned into a funny game when they would tally up how many biters I have caught. I feel like that could be a unique aspect I bring as a voter, although I haven't seen any biters here yet. But my best overall answer is this; I would be a good voter because I WANT AND NEED to be a good voter. If I dropped shitty votes with ratings that made no sense, no veterans would respect me. I would seem like I lacked knowledge in rap. I have actually rapped and worked with some people FROM this website that would vouch for me. Skizzo, Olde English... i'm drawing a blank right now on other big names here, but, if you look at any votes I have placed on this site thus far, you will see they are all solid, and I take great pride in my votes. Last but not least, I can explain and break down votes without being a total prick about it. I am capable of explaining in a way that makes the loser want to learn and work harder and not give up. This website I can tell does NOT have a great history of that. I can uplift and make people better, regardless if they want to be or not.

3) What kind of voting activity would you expect from yourself if you were in the FVC?

I'll shoot it to you straight. I just paid off my house right before this epidemic started thankfully. I got laid off work for at least 3 months. I have plenty of time now. If you let me join the FVC, I would make it my personal mission to vote on EVERY single open battle I see. I will literally try to vote on EVERY. SINGLE. BATTLE. Most people AREN'T like that. Most people AREN'T selfless and they're too egotistical. I appreciate the art, and would love to vote on every single battle if i can, audio or text. All I need is an opportunity, and the workhorse will get started.
