The rules on the server are almost identical to the DB Chat Room's rules.
Similar to the Database, we have ranks. These ranks are assigned based on activity and contribution both on the server and on the database. So the current staff is made up of mainly Expert+; though there are some exceptions of people that are very active and contribute highly to the server.
How do I get promoted from a regular user to Voice?
Being voiced marks you as a particularly good user. It grants you a position at the top of the userlist, the ability to talk in moderated chat, and shows that you are a respected and helpful chat member. While obeying the following will not guarantee you voice status, it's a good start and will certainly improve your image in the staff team's eyes.
~ Smogons Showdown staff FAQ
As said before, people are promoted based on their contribution and activity. So if you spend a lot of time on the server and make positive contributions to the chat, then you have a good chance of being promoted. We only promote if we NEED someone. So don't ask to get user promoted if we don't need one. When we do, it will usually be from % to @.
What can staff do?
+ Voice - They can use ! commands such as !groups, and talk during moderated chat. Also can start and end tournaments.
% Driver - The above, and they can also mute users and un-mute users.
@ Moderator - The above, and they can ban users and check for alts.
& Leader - The above, and they can promote moderators and force ties. They can also force name changes and namelock users.
~ Administrator - They can do anything.

OK, so I have spoke to Zarel and the ladder is now working. What is the ladder, I hear you ask? Well, its simple. It's a ranking scheme for battles on the server. If you win, you gain points and if you lose, you lose points.
To check your rating, type /rating. It's that simple.
To view the ladder, click the "Ladder" tab and to take part in a rated battle search for the tier you want to battle in.
So yeah. I'll get the ladder re-done. I'll also get it on the server list again.

The 8th Gym Leader is being decided.
The DB server has implemented a Badge System, which will allow Gym Leaders to award users their badge on the server. The server will then save how many badges you have, which means badge tracking is a lot easier.

Any reports will be seen to by a member of staff. Do not feed the trolls.
