Don't worry about it.

If memory serves me right, you guys want that post as close to the top of every page as possible, is that correct?

That's right!

Here's the most current Club Info.

Not sure what to say, really, but here are two of my WIPs. In fact only one truly is a WIP, as the other was planned tobe trashed, but I regret it now.

As for this song, I am not fond with how unpleasant some frequency ranges can sound, and I am speaking of the phased instrument. I came up with the idea of using two equalizers, but is there no more convenient solution? Also, how could I add up to the drums... to the tempo? Lastly that bass sound is really basic, only two subtractors used in a combinator. How could I spice it up a bit? There may also be a problem in the note layout, but I dunno... fresh ears are exactly what I need, and I hope someone can lend me theirs.

linkie http://kiwi6.com/file/u2gt40h92v

I will dedicate this song to games out there that could use some soundtrack. I am a bit confused on how to proceed with the build, but maybe someone can suggest me something? That would be totally cool. I kind of like the sound of that maelstrom noise, but at the same time not. If I want to keep it, what to do to make it blend in more?

Cheers everyone

All right, I know I have finals, but I doubt joining the RRC again will affect that. Can I rejoin? I regret not adding RRC at the bottom of the reviews I've done so far, but I'm halfway through the list, and I'm planning on doing a few more today and the rest tomorrow.

Sorry but we don't really do content off of Newgrounds, if those two are entries you have uploaded to the Audio Portal then that is fine.

Damn, slipped up again. I was distracted though, my social life became VERY interesting :D

Still, I'll try and get a few requests done this week and see if I can get some Audio thrown in there as well.

Also, we've had an Art Request, so we all win!

I made this yesterday, and felt it was good, but I'm not sure if anything is wrong with it so I was wondering if you could review it and point out some thing I should work on.

NOTE - READ THESE RULES, EVEN IF YOU HAVE ALREADY READ THE RULES IN THE FIRST POST. THEY ARE AN UPDATED VERSION OF THE RULES IN THE FIRST POST AND THEY HAVE NEW IMPORTANT RULES!

Hello! Welcome to the new Review Request Club thread. This thread is meant to give the club a fresh start and make it a pleasant place to stay. In order to do this, it goes without saying that you must follow the regular BBS rules and read the C&C Advice Thread before posting if you are new to this forum.

This club aims to increase the exposure of the most under-rated Newgrounds music, art and flash artists. The other major purpose of the club is to offer the Newgrounds artists high quality feedback so they can constantly improve their work.

To the requesters:
Every Newgrounds user is allowed to request a review as soon as he submitted something. To get your work reviewed, don't post here without thinking but follow these few rules:

- Post a direct link to the submission(s) you want reviewed.
- Make no more than 3 Flash and Art requests between two updates (that's one week), and no more than 3 Audio Requests between 5 updates (that's four weeks).
- Please respond to reviews, reviewers like it and some of them are statwho... oh wait, interested in stats.
- Be patient. Due to the points system, you may not see reviews until up to two weeks after you requested, or if you requested more than 1 Audio submission, you may not see reviews on your second submission up until 3 weeks after you requested, and you may not see reviews on your third submission up until 4 weeks after you requested.
- Do NOT request without posting a link, be kind, reviewers are not robots.
- Do NOT simply say "Review everything" or just link to your profile.
- Do NOT request reviews for the same submission more than once.
- Do NOT request reviews for a submission with over 50 reviews.
- Do NOT request reviews for spam. Spam is only there to annoy, not to be critically analyzed.
- Unless you are a club member, only request reviews for YOUR OWN submissions.

To the reviewers:
If you want to join the club and complete requests, simply post in the thread saying you would like to join. Then, regular members will go through your reviews and determine if they are good enough to be part of the club. Your reviews are required to be helpful, developed and well-organised. If you need help with writing good reviews, read Fro's guide to writing helpful reviews.

Once you are accepted, you can start reviewing stuff. If you are a new member of the club, once you understand how the point system works, please post - one or two days before the update - the total points you've earned during the week. This is considered as a sort of application form, and if you fail to do so, you will NOT be added to the club.

Points System:
List updaters will keep track of each member's points in order to build a list. You don't need to post your points before each update but you can keep track of your score on your own so any error can be fixed. This is how points are counted:

5 points for a review on a requested submission (movie, game, art, or audio).
1 point for writing "Review Request Club" at the bottom of a requested review.
3 points for posting at least once throughout the two weeks.
5 points for referring a new member (must mention you in first post).
7 points for reviewing all requests/recommendations between two updates.

Club Updates:
Each Sunday or Monday, a list of all the members is created, counting up their points, featuring various stats and posting a list of requested submissions. Assuming you review the submissions in that list, you will get points for them accordingly in the following members' update, around a week later.

Don't forget the lists are built and updated by humans so it may be possible the update is delayed due to various real life reasons. If it ever occurs, don't get mad; calm down and wait :).

Frequently Asked Questions:

Should we have an FAQ?
I don't know. It kinda seems like overkill.

Why a new thread?
The main idea was to give the club a new and fresh start. Since the old one was flooded by requests and not updated any more, the RRC regulars thought creating a new thread would be best for the club.

Should I link to the club in my forum signature?
There's no obligation to do so, but it's certainly appreciated. Remember that you can put a high number in place of the page number in the URL and if that page doesn't exist yet, Newgrounds will take you to the latest page, whatever it is. For example, "http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/107 2042/999" will take you to the latest page of this club.

RRC Signature?
Yes, at the end of each review, if you want you can write down 'Review Request Club'. There is no obligation to do so, but you'll get +1 point if you put the RRC signature in your review. You can add anything you want to it, E.G.: *Review Request Club*, |Review Request Club|, -Review Request Club-, etc, but as long as 'Review Request Club' is clearly written, you will get the point. You are also allowed to add the sig in any reviews other than requests in this club, as long as you are a club member yourself. It's all the more exposure for the club, and it's very much appreciated.

+1 point if I put the RRC signature in my review... I'm not sure if I get it correctly.
You gain 6 points for a review on a request with "Review Request Club" in the end of it, as opposed to 5 points if you hadn't added the signature at the end. If it's still not clear, read this.

Does the Review Request Club review for non-NG stuff?
No. It must be an NG submission. If you have a non-NG submission which you would like us to review, then use your common sense and upload it to NG. Also, we will only review using the 'Write a Review' method on submissions. We won't send reviews by PM, review in your newspost or review in any particular thread of yours.

Do I have to review all the requests?
No you don't have to, just do your best :). Though completing them all will give you 7 extra points.

Which requests should I review?
If you want to get points for the next member's update, look for the latest requests list in the club thread and review the requests from that list. If you review any requests from various posts in the thread which would have been posted after the latest requests list, you will be getting points for the member's update after the next one.

can u review allz mah flashz guise? kthxbai.
No.

If you have more questions, feel free to post about it in the thread or PM a member and if your question is frequently asked, it'll be added to the FAQ.

---

That's all about the club, though this new version of the club couldn't be opened without mentioning the old thread regulars who have made it a great place to spend time. Kudos to Freelance-Magician for creating the original club and to FattyWhale for maintaining it for so long. Thanks also to Sonofkirk for starting this new thread and doing many updates.

Have fun!

I might be able to do that. I might as well start doing a few reviews right now. I've got the time.

Hey, update time!

Like with all Member's Updates, this comes with good news and bad news. The good news is that three people managed to finish all the reviews - SCTE3, Soapbubble and YumeSin. They all deserve a pat on the back :D.

We've also got a new member, or rather than new, an old member joining for the third time ;D. Welcome again to Soapbubble.

We're also probably one update away from getting 7,000 total reviews, so yay.

Finally, there are no inactive members - everyone did a review (and therefore the stats are looking great) and every request, naturally, got at least three reviews. Some even got up to 5 reviews.

Now for the bad news - we don't have that many members anymore. DonCarrera requested to leave, and two others - aliaspharow and Omega-Ravager, were excluded by default because of their inactivity, so we're down to just six members.

I also slacked off and did only one review... but meh, I spent more time approving/banning new artists, so at least I'm contributing somehow to the site :P. Too bad reviewing's far more fun...

Lastly, nobody's volunteered to take over in the updating process when I go abroad on the 27th (and return on the 14th next month). I very much doubt I'll be able to update while I'm in France, so I could really use some help. Remember, it's all really straightforward and I edited the spreadsheets to add a few guidelines and reminders of what to do. Just PM me or post in this thread if you're up for taking over while I'm away.

Anyway, that's about it. A rather long update intro this time, but ah well. Enjoy!
